Little paradise to visit south-west of Portugal
This is a charming little cottage on a small hill near Silves, in a little remote location to enjoy quietness, but not too far too be able to visit all the beautiful beaches and sites of Algarve. You will enjoy the nice little town of Silves with its castle, little restaurants avoiding the crowds of Lagos or Portimao. Drives to beaches are never very long, as the scenery is beautiful.
The house is clean and very well equipped, and we enjoyed every single day we stayed there with our 3 children. The swimming pool is a blessing, especially on very hot days of July.
Dick, the owner is very helpful and makes sure you are spending a wonderful time in his house. The manager is only a few minutes away if one needs any help.
We are definitely looking forward to go back to this charming place.
We're very happy with these words. Thank you very much taking your time to write this review. Your wish to return to our house in the future is the best proof you enjoyed the two weeks staying in Poco Barreto.
Like you we enjoy our holidays at the house very much. Will stay there for a longtime period in winterseason. Looking forward to that!
We will be honoured to recieve you again returning to the beautiful Algarve.
Thank you again for your booking.

Outstanding property in tranquil settings.
Beautiful traditional villa set in lovely mature tropical gardens, which have been designed to provide a perfect balance for sun bathing and shade for the hotter days. Between the villa & garden is a lovely salt swimming pool, with good quality and substantial outside furniture. The large private terraces provide gorgeous views of a wooded valley with old farm houses scattered around and hills in the distance, which can be explored on foot.
Inside the villa is equipped with a beautiful mixture of antique and modern furniture. The kitchen has retained its Portuguese style which creates a rustic charm.
The annex provided a lovely independent space for parents to relax.
The outside kitchen/dining area with sink, BBQ and fridge was outstanding and used every day.
The owner was exceptionally helpful from the first email and his local manager Mike, was also very helpful, whom we are indebted to.
Thank you very much taking your time to write this review. We're very happy with these beautiful words. It's very satisfying to read that you appreciate our house and garden like we do.
We're very glad you enjoyed your stay that much!

A perfect experience in an idyllic location
We have been very delighted with our stay at this beautiful property. This is a fabulous house in a fantastic setting. The house has a wonderful, typical Moorish atmosphere and is fitted out to a high standard. The outside is even better than we expected. Big terraces, a lovely pool and a huge garden with many old trees and all kind of tropical vegetation. Lying in one of the hammocks and gazing over the wide, green valley.....I realized how lucky we were finding this place. It’s always kind of tricky selecting a holiday home on the internet. But right on arrival we determined that this place far exceeded our expectations.
Besides it’s very private and beautiful atmosphere the house is a brilliant base from where to explore the Algarve. We didn’t know the Algarve, but we’re impressed by the combination of the beautiful beaches at close distances as well as the lovely and peaceful surroundings of the house. Right from the house you can make beautiful walks in all directions between all kind of trees like carob, cork oaks, almond, orange, lemon and others . The city of Silves is only a few miles away. A beautiful , historical town where you find all kind of shops and restaurants.
This is what you hope to get, but seldom find….
We were impressed by the charming house, the big terraces and wonderful garden . Swimming in the pool , underneath the palm trees and other old trees was a special sensation.The huge property is situated very private and overlooks an valley with some farms at great distance. Several days we stayed at the house all day long, no need to get the car and go somewhere else.....we felt very comfortable and enjoyed this special feeling of peace and quietness.
Is er dan toch een paradijs?
Ann en ik hadden de foto's op de site bekeken. Het leek ons wel wat en dus gingen we naar de Algarve. Dit hadden we nog nooit meegemaakt, de schoonheid van dit goed was niet te bevatten, zo mooi. dit kan je niet op enkele afbeeldingen vastleggen. Laat het je niet vertellen maar ontdek het zelf. Wij gaan alvast terug!

Villa très calme et parfaitement équipée
Grâce à l'accueil, la disponibilité et la gentillesse de Dick et Josepha, nous avons été plus qu'enchanté de séjourner dans cet havre de paix et de tranquillité .
A l'écart des nuisances de la ville, et pourtant proche des commodités tel que supermarchés, restaurants, cette villa nous a agréablement surpris par son aspect fonctionnel et son intérieur confortable.
Parmi les "plus" de cette villa: l'eau salée de la piscine, la cuisine extérieure et son barbecue, sans oublier les transats et la literie très confortables.
Toujours à l'écoute, disponibles et bienveillants, sans jamais être intrusifs, Dick et ses collaborateurs ont été au petits soins avec nous.
Un conseil, si vous souhaitez la réservez, n'attendez pas la dernière minute.
"Partir de ce petit coin de paradis, c'est mourir un peu...", il nous tarde de pouvoir y revenir.
We're very happy to read that you enjoyed your stay at our house that much.
We thank you very much taking your time to write this lovely review.
We're honoured to receive you again in the future. Please let us know in time.

The villa is situated in the central part of the Algarve. It's location is very quiet and 100 % private, just outside the rumours of mass tourisme. The most beautiful Algarve beaches are very close.( 10 kms) In the rural enviroment one can walk and bike directly starting at the house. Golf courses: 3/5 kms.
