A special place

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for a week over the Easter holidays to 'get away from it all' and this Villa ticked every box for us. A modern and very luxurious Villa with everything and more a family would need. The views over the Porto Carvalhoso valley are breath-taking giving a real feeling of remoteness, but only 15 mins drive from São Brás de Alportel for nearest supermarket and 20 mins from Tavira for excellent restaurants. The owners have a real treasure here and we’d love to visit again. Thanks also to Sebastiaan and Françoise for meeting us and settling us in.

Die Villa ist exzellent, die Lage ruhig, die letzten 500 m der Anfahrt am besten mit SUV zu fahren.

  • 3 of 5

Die Umgebung der der hervorragenden Villa ist leider nicht besonders reizvoll, Jogging ist sehr beschwerlich und nur auf Straßen möglich, der nächste Tennisplatz mindestens 30 Minuten Fahrzeit entfernt. Ende April/Anfang Mai 2017 war es kalt, oft bewölkt und teilweise regnerisch. Aus meiner Sicht eignet sich die Algarve gut für Golfspieler, Strandurlauber und Radfahrer bei geeigneter Lage der Unterkunft.

Super mooinhuis, praktisch en mooi gaan goed samen

  • 5 of 5

Na een parijs_dakar rit kom je bij een mooi huis voorzien van alle gemakken op een super mooie locatie, en krijg je de rust die wordt omschreven op de website van de villa. Uitzicht geweldig, huis in goede staat, mooi zwembad en je kunt uren bivakeren op de veranda. Niks dan lof, ook voor de beheerders, die je altijd kunt bereiken bij probleemjes. We kunnen dit huis ook alleen maar met een 9 beoordelen, en aanraden bij andere mensen.

We hebben twee fantastische weken gehad, en niet alleen door het mooie weer.
