Litle interesting house

  • 4 of 5
If you want to stay in a quiet small house without spending much money, this could be the choice.

Eillen is very nice and leaves a nice surprise for you when you arrive. It seems as if you're arriving to your mother's house, with bread, cheese, milk, wine, chips...

It was very nice.

These renters enjoyed their Easter break here with plenty going on in Sao Bras, especially the Flower Parade on Easter Sunday, which is always well attended. Eileen.

Charming Cottage

  • 5 of 5
We have recently spent a superb week at this charming cottage.
The location a short distance from Sao. Bras provided good restaurants and easy access for travelling about.

The cottage had everything needed to make the holiday very pleasant
the gardens were beautiful and the pool a delight. One of the best that we have used in the last 10 years in our holidays in the Algarve.

A special thank you to Eileen who was an excellent hostess, always there if needed but respecting our privacy at the same time.

The cottage was more than adequate and very well maintained.

One of the best weeks away and would love to return -if you would have us?

Beautiful Cottage

  • 5 of 5
My wife, 15 month old son and I have just returned from a week at the cottage. I would agree with what most people have said already, Eileen and Dobson are lovely, really helpful with restaurants and day trips etc. Lagos is a must visit as it has lots of history and a lovely beach. You will need a car as walking up the hill carrying your shopping is tough on a hot day! One tip is that restaurants don't open till 7pm for evening dining.
If you stay at this cottage you will not be disappointed!

Lovely peaceful cottage with new pool!

  • 5 of 5
My partner & I have just returned from a one week stay in this lovely clean & peaceful cottage.

Most of what we want to say has already been said, Eileen is so lovely & friendly & most helpful in showing you/ telling you where things are such as restaurants, shops etc. She really made us both feel welcome indeed.

The cottage has everything you could think of to start you off which was great! Coffee, sugar, milk, bread, yummy plum jam, plenty of pots for cooking........everything!!!

We used the cottage as a base to sunbathe by the pool & to hire a car to explore the Algarve.

You can hire a car from the nearby town of Sao Bras which actually takes Visa Electron!! You can also hire from Faro airport too. We picked the car up in Sao Bras but dropped it off at Faro Airport on departure.
www.amoita.com is their website.

Albufeira beach is very touristy & is ideal if you are looking for The Full English Breakfast thing but if you are looking for a gorgeous Portuguese town then you must visit Lagos (you must!!!) It's truly quaint & beautiful. It has a port but also has a lovely beach with some nice bars close by. We loved it there and it's only just over an hours drive away from the cottage if you take the A22 which will take you to most of the beaches on the Algarve so is very easy.

Also the sao rafael has a small secluded beach not far from Albufeira which is away from the crowds which again is beautiful.

The Green wine is very tasty & the chicken piri-piri is very nice :-)

Thank you once again Eileen for a wonderful stay. We really do hope to visit again but will be a bigger party so will also use the extra bedroom with the large terrace.

And a big thank you to your friend too who said he would leave us a chicken in the fridge on our next visit lol!!! ;-)
