Villa Cortelhas Customer Reviews

Loretta Kennedy, 09-Jul-2015

Absolutely beautiful villa with everything you need. Excellent facilities and home comforts. Guia is a lovely town with a good selection of restaurants and shops. There is a fantastic retail centre about 5 minutes away. About 15 minutes drive is Albufeira with a great selection of restaurants. And just another 10 minutes or so takes you to Vilamoura - lovely Marina, especially in the evenings. Beaches are outstanding and so many coves to choose from. Will definitely return to this Villa.
