Perfect Holiday!

  • 5 of 5
I can’t recommend this villa highly enough; beautiful villa in peaceful and romantic surrounding perfect and as described! Starting from the booking process everything seemed so easy and the owners are really friendly and approachable. In fact although we never met them, we would like to think of them as friends, such was the rapport that we built up with them by email prior to our stay. We were quite a big family group with teenagers and young children and the beautiful grounds are so vast that everyone seemed to peel off and do their own thing.

Whilst some of us decided to had pool tournament; others lay lazily in the sun, the children splashed about in the huge lovely pool or busied themselves with the play station 3. Separate games room with pool table, huge barbeque area, out side toilet facilities and a fitness room! The bedrooms are spacious and airy and beautifully decorated all in a slightly different style. The top floor of the house is great for those members of your party with the loudest snores! Upstairs there was another huge sitting room, and bedrooms had the beautiful view of the valley

The kitchen was equipped with everything that one can thought of, although we did not use it much as the outdoor patio with table was perfect for meals. It was perfect for those who fancy themselves as culinary experts! There are 2 washing machines and a tumble dryer if needed. Surrounding area is stunning and some of the small towns and villages nearby are really authentic and very pretty!. Every thought and care has been put into this villa and everything is provided for a fantastic luxury holiday. Would love to come back again and highly recommend specially for large families with different tastes.

Excellent customer services!

great place to stay

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time at this charming family house, ~We really felt like at home away from home, thanks to its fully stocked kitchen and dining room.

The views from the place are stunning -- with sunsets to remember and plenty of natural light throughout the house. The outside and the pool area was wonderful and spend most of the time bbq soaking in the hot sun.

Everything we needed was provided (including beach towels) and great advice about places to see and prompt attention for whatever we needed.

Beautiful places close by and not to mention beeches! Would highly recommend.

Spacious, clean, well equipped villa

  • 4 of 5
We had a week here - 2 families - and the villa was great. Spacious inside and out, good pool and views - quiet location. Decent pool table a plus also. Local town Fanadia was all but closed (apparently a couple of small cafes open in Sept), but some good restaurants in Obidos and around Caldas de Rainha. Peniche beach great with Xakra beach restauirant for lunch and/or dinner.

Smells like mold, not the postcard

  • 2 of 5
The house was OK and the surroundings and outdoors are nice. A short drive to nice beaches and Obidos castle was great.
But indoor the house smells like mold and is moist due to lack of indoor heating and metal closed windows/doors when no people are in the house.
The site said that there was broadband internet, but reality was a mobile connection so slow that I could do no work, reading news took ages, and streaming music would be impossible. This made it harder for us to plan excursions and all the other things internet is used for these days......
The TV/PS3/DVDs were with electrical connections suited for UK, but there were not enough adapters so they would have to be moved around to use all.

All in all NOT a place I would recommend.
PS: After the stay I e-mailed FAB holidays to get a comment on the "fake broadband" and the TV that did not work etc (we had the caretaker visiting and he did not get the TV/DVD to start), now 2 weeks later there is still total silence from FAB holidays, and that is just poor customer treatment. Prior to the visit they were very nice and replied same day every time.....

Our first visit to Portugal and it turned out to be an amazing experience. We had fantastic time on miles of beeches and enjoyed the sun and sand as never before.

My brother and his family loved the outdoor – specially the children enjoyed it to the fullest. They did even want to leave the house and were happy with swimming pool, trampoline, pool table and loads of games and playstation three; which kept them busy for themselves for whole two weeks.

The villa was fully equipped with all the amenities that we could ask for. Lots of space outside, no noise and no traffic. We did the normal sightseeing, driving through small towns was an experience of its own. Whenever we need any help; the caretaker was there within half an hours call to sort things out.

People were nice and friendly and very helpful. We felt a bit sad when it was over. Would definitely recommend to family and friends.
