Lovely stay with 8 people.

Seven friends and I had a great week staying here - Mr Bastos was extremely helpful, and lives very close by - he is cheerfully available day or night, any day of the week, which was much appreciated. The villa spacious, very nicely furnished, clean and with very good facilities and masses of crockery, cutlery, linen etc. The living space is huge, with a lovely dining room, great tv, and DVD projector, which we very much enjoyed. It was also fantastic to have a good computer and wireless internet. Eight people (and a baby or two) can sleep very comfortably in the bedrooms; more could sleep on the sofabeds in communal areas. I'd definitely recommend the place for a (large) family, or a group of friends.
The only slight snags were that it was quite easy to fuse the electricity, with relatively few appliances on at once - but Mr Bastos was there within minutes and showed us how to fix it, and it didn't happen again. (The hob and one of the showers is gas, too, so you could get by for a while.) The pool is also quite small - but we enjoyed it!
We didn't go into Praia da Macas, the closest village, much, but it was a fairly easy walk when we did, and the bakery, post office and small supermarket there were very handy. The Restaurant Nautilus was fantastic - service slow to start with but they really cared about the food, which was delicious and plentiful, and were very impressive in particular at filleting our sea bream at the table. We had a great night there.
