About Joan Jones
My parents fell in love with rural Portugal it reminded them of parts of Africa where they had spent the early years of their marriage. They found the plot of land and decided to build the villa. It has been a place of many wonderful family holidays. Sadly my parents are no longer with us so I have decided that I need to share the wonders of the rural Algarve with others. Enjoy!
Joan Jones purchased this Villa in 1988

Heaven on Earth
We have been coming to the Sao Bras de Alportel area on and off for over 20 years, this is the best villa we have stayed in over all that time ! It was the most comfortable and well equiped , the gardens were beautifully kept and there were lovely potted plants everywhere, the views from the villa were amazing !! It is off the beaten track and away from it all ! The weather was amazing which just made our holiday we stayed 9 days and had wall to wall sunshine everyday ( i am sorry i can't guarantee the weather ) but can everything else !! We would thoroughly recommend this villa if you want an away from it all relaxing holiday !!
I'm delighted you and your family enjoyed your stay at our villa and thank you for writing such a complimentary review. I would love to welcome you back in the future.
Spacious clean villa relaxing, stunning views
Lovely homily feel to the property, very clean and well maintained, plenty of sunbeds. Kitchen well kitted out, plenty of utensils. Lovely chilled week sitting by the pool admiring surrounding views and taking lovely walks in the area through the day. Barbecue or eating out a pleasure at night.
Many thanks for taking the time to write us such a wonderful review, we really appreciate it. We are thrilled that you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to hosting you again in the future should you decide to return to our little piece of serenity.
The Ultimate Get Away
This is our 4th Stay in this villa and we have fallen in love with it and this beautiful part of Portugal. It is an ideal location if you want to explore neighbouring towns and villages, our favourite places are Tavira and Estoi.
The outstanding feature of this wonderful villa and its little cottage is the countryside in which they sit, it is wild and beautiful and whilst you feel completely away from it all you are only a few minutes drive to a supermarket and the town, which has some great restaurants. The pool is positioned to allow you to enjoy the perfect view, our teenage girls just love it.
The property is always perfect, but even better this year with a few upgrades which made the stay even more comfortable. Owned by a lovely family who are a delight to deal with.
Just love this place.
Thank you so much for writing us such a wonderful review. We are thrilled that you return every year and are so pleased that you love the villa as much as we do. We look forward to welcoming you back next summer.
Peaceful & seclusion admist farmers orchards
Nestled in the hills just above soa bras de alportel your not very far from amenities and restuarants. Directions easy to follow and communication with owner faultless. The property itself felt very tidy clean and well maintained. Inside spacious and airy, mossi nets on bedroom windows such a bonus. Kitchen well equipped should you want to cook, good size fridge. Outside plenty of furniture, cushions, sun brollies supplied, plenty of places to sit should you want sun all day or seek some shade. We had many an enjoyable day and night sat outside, inside was little used. In all we had a wonderful, relaxing 2 weeks at this property and hope to return. J&G
