holiday.They will answer any questions that arise and can advise on
local events etc.
There is a regular maid service, 2-3 times per week and the linen is changed weekly.
The gardeners visit weekly, usually on a Wednesday afternoon and the pool is serviced weekly.
There is a telephone for incoming calls and local calls e.g to restaurants and taxi companies.
Wireless Broadband Internet Access is available free of charge.
villa is available to you from 14.00 on the day of arrival and should
be vacated by 10.00 on the departure day. This is to allow time for the
maid to prepare the villa between groups. It is possible that the maid
may still be working at 14.00, but the villa is available to the new
guests from that time.
Cot and high chair hire can be organised for you.
The cost of these are: cot hire €25 per week and high chair hire €10 per week.
If you wish to accommodate an additional one or two children on a folding bed rather than a cot then hire of folding beds can be arranged. The cost of folding bed hire is €75 per week.
A food and supplies delivery from a local supermarket can be arranged for your arrival. They make no charge
for delivery, but will only accept orders valued at £25 or over.
We can arrange taxi or mini bus transfer from Faro airport or can arrange car hire for you. Please contact us for more details and prices.
Please note we do NOT supply tennis rackets and balls. We would love to do so and realise it can be inconvenient to bring your own, but it simply isn't possible to provide them and ensure that they remain in good condition for each group arriving.
All it takes is the group ahead of you allowing children to play roughly and unsupervised with them and the arriving group could find all the balls lost and tennis rackets in a very poor state. We feel it is safer to tell each group they must take their own than risk people arriving hoping and planning to play tennis and relying on provided equipment and being disappointed finding that the equipment is not useable.
Baptistas supermarket in Praia da Luz has been established for over 40 years. It is located just 5 minutes walk from Vila Margarida and sells a wide range of fresh produce such as meat, fruit and veg and bread as well and tins, packets, frozen food, toiletries, newspapers and soft drinks, beers, wines and spirits.
It caters for both local and tourist trade and stocks a good variety of British and other foods.
Whilst for many items it is not as cheap as the bigger Lagos supermarkets it is very convenient and although often busy in peak summer season it is open convenient and long hours!
They also have the massive advantage that they will deliver. We use them for our arrival food deliveries, but they will also deliver to you during your stay. You can pop to the shop and choose and pay for what you want and they will then deliver your shopping to Vila Margarida, usually within an hour. This is particularly useful if you do not have use of a car or perhaps would just prefer to walk to and from the shop, but need to buy heavy items.
You can also order online or by phone and their website has an online order form if you prefer to shop online.
