What people say...

Happy customer
Our family had an amazing adventure in southern Portugal. We biked, kayaked, surfed, rock climbed, swam and traveled all over the southwestern part of the Algarve. The food was amazing and the host family was delightful. I highly recommend aqua ventura for an active family who wants to have fun, try new things, and learn about a different part of the world from knowledgeable hosts.
By the end of the week you will feel like part of the family and be
plotting your return.

Jonny and Violeta, thanks so much for a lovely holiday, trying to pretend we are still on holiday back at home :) I loved the quiet, and the relaxed pace of activities, you always seemed to just know what we'd like to do and for how long. Thomas so enjoyed the company of your lovely children and is already asking when we can come back. We will see you again for sure.

I wasn’t sure quite what to expect when I agreed to go on holiday with my family (incl. 3 younger brothers) at nearly 21 years old but I can 100% say that it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I know that very few 17/18+ year old's would ever consider a holiday with their parents but this place is something else entirely. For the first time in years I was able to entirely forget about exams/university and just relax. The activities, the food, the location… Everything was amazing and the chilled atmosphere allowed me to be a part of both the ‘adult group’ and also to just be a kid again. Jonny, Vio & their team were amazing and I cannot thank them enough for an absolutely fantastic week!

If you want a beach holiday where the most activity you get is turning over on your towel, this is NOT the holiday for you! If you DO like to share laughs & have fun with your family with Jonny, doing stuff like climbing,cycling,kayaking & falling off surfboards, then come back to eat Vio's amazing food & relax in your own lovely cottage, then THIS IS THE PLACE FOR YOU AND YOUR FAMILY! Jonny's homemade pizzas aren't
half bad either….!
