What time can we arrive at our Holiday Villa in the Algarve?

This is a question we very often get, and I do understand why. Weeks, if not months, you are looking forward to your holiday to the Algarve, and finally you arrive at Faro airport, but the villa you have booked is not ready yet! Or you are with a large group, the whole family from grandparents to baby’s, and you arrive 9am at the airport and the villa is not ready till late in the afternoon! WHAT A BUMMER!!! It is hot, sweaty weather in the Algarve, and the baby is crying, and need changing, granddad really need his afternoon nap!!!

What to do???

Algarve Housing, always like to know your arrival and departure time upfront. So please inform us!

The villa need to be cleaned, the sheets need to be changed, and the fridge need to be emptied, as well as the rubbish bins. The garden and outside terraces will be cleared and cleaned.
