Hi, we are Jean and John Davis, we bought this villa, new, in 2002, I guess we were smitten with the cute little Portuguese village. We often see the shepherd walking his sheep down the lane to graze, or the locals who live off the land and pick their olives in October. They grow their own oranges, pluck their chickens and bake their own bread, some still trot around on their donkeys, no jumping in the car to the local supermarket for a bottle of wine for them! (Yes, they grow the grapes too!) The Algarvians are friendly and have a relaxed attitude to visitors. Fishermen paint their boats in colours as bright as the spring flowers on the cliffs. Two donkey carts cause a ‘traffic jam’. At this pace of life even the most stressed businessman soon unwinds.
Jean purchased this villa in 2002
Our villa has two views, to the south you will see miles of the coast with the lights that romantically twinkle at night and to the north we have the Monchique mountains (the highest mountains in the Algarve) At night our palm trees make it a very pleasant place to sit and enjoy. Our villa is available all year round, the Algarve enjoys 300 days a year of sunshine even 70f in November. Our 10 x 5 mtr pool has heating if needed which is solely for the use of our clients. So, Come & Enjoy. See our special low season rates.
Our location is ideal for those who want to totally relax and yet be near enough for the beach just 15 mins away. It is ideally situated for all your needs. We are often being told: why do we need to go out when we have all this here to enjoy.
We fell in love with this villa last year and we had to return this year.
We took my parents to celebrate their golden wedding anniversary and they fell in love with the villa.
Everything is there to make your holiday easy and relaxing. The pool is fantastic and the views from the deep end over looking the olive tree's is just brilliant. The best part is the peace and quiet you can just sit and listen to the frogs or the distant chickens, but no other noise. John and Jean are the best owners we know, nothing is too much trouble, they take time to care about your stay and to make sure you are happy with everything. We would recommend this villa to anyone looking for a holiday to get away from the stress and strain of normal life.
We had have just returned from a really relaxing holiday at this gorgeous villa recently thanks to Jean and John.
This is the perfect setting for a holiday if you want to get away from it all.The region is set amongst citrus groves and olive and carob trees .
The setting is truly stunning with immaculate gardens , a very well cared for pool,by John and breathtaking views across to the distant hills.
The house is extremely clean and well cared for . There is plenty of room for 6 people .and all the mod cons exactly as described.The kitchen is like new and the bathrooms are very modern and clean.The wifi speed is better than our home !
Jean is obviously meticulous in making sure everything is up to scratch and comfortable.
She even left us a bottle of wine and some fresh figs.
Jean and John are available for any queries if needed but are not at all intrusive.
You must have a car when staying here.It is very easy to use the house as a base. We visited the West,Central and Eastern Algarve easily as the roads are so empty and spent the rest of the time relaxing in the gardens round the pool.
We would love to visit this area again and would definitely try and stay at this fantastic villa.
Thank you Jean and John.
Jean and John are the most respectful owners we have ever had the pleasure meeting, close by if you need assistance, but happy to let you enjoy the peaceful solitude of their lovely villa. Johns appearance every so often to maintain the pool was benefited by his personal friendly attitude and guide to good local restaurants
There were 4 of us staying at the villa but it can accommodate 6 with comfort.
Plenty of hot water and all the home comforts you need to make your stay enjoyable if you just want to spend the time at the villa. Local supermarkets only a few minutes away by car which is essential IMHO.
Having the pool heated was a bonus at this time of year and worth the additional expense.. The whole family were sad to leave and even two teenage boys were kept entertained with good quality wifi.
Would definitely return the next time we go to Portugal.

The Villa was lovely better than the photos, they don't do it justice, it was very clean, comfortable and well maintained. It had everything you need, for cooking and comfort. Jean and John were both lovely they were helpful, and gave us a lot of information, and recommended a lot of restaurant's to us they checked that all was ok with us and asked if we needed anything. We would recommend the villa to friends and family, the location was beautiful and it is easy to get anywhere from there. The weather for the last four days wasn't good but that's a chance you take in October.
Thank you Jean and John we hope we are able return and stay in the villa in the future, you were very helpful and provided a very good customer service. Brian and Christine
We had a wonderful week staying at Jean and John's villa and we're already talking about going back in the future! I stayed there with my husband and 1 year old son, it was our first time in Portugal and staying in a villa, as we were travelling with a baby we found this a lot easier than staying in a hotel. The first thing I should mention is that the pictures on the website really don't do the beautiful view justice. It was so stunning and peaceful, there is a very big outside area with lots of beautiful flowers. We really enjoyed using the pool, reading in the lounge chairs and being able to eat outside in the evening (although on a few evenings it was too windy to do so). Although it's very quiet and private at the same time it's not too far away from lots of nice places to visit. While there we went to Sagres, Luz, Silves, Aljezur and Lagos the local shops are also not far away. I also enjoyed early morning walks in the local area with my son before it got too hot. The villa itself is very spacious and clean, the beds were very comfortable and the kitchen has all the equipment and utensiles you need. We used the barbeque every evening to make dinner The wifi connection is is very fast. When my parents saw the view on facetime they also expressed an interest in booking a week at the villa. There is also a big TV with lots of English channels. All the communication before and after our stay was very friendly and prompt. Thank you again for a wonderful stay, we hope to be back soon!
I am sitting on the veranda on the last night of our stay, I am watching the sun go down and don't want to go home. This is a lovely villa and my wife and I and two teenage daughter have loved it.
The villa has been a home from home and I leave with batteries recharged. The one thing all of us have said is that the photos on the site don't do the villa justice!!! This place is not a typical sanitised rental, it has felt like a home to us
We have not "done" much just lazed around the house with occasional trips to local restaurants. The villa is spacious and clean, we have had enough space, breakfasts on one terrace then lazy days by the pool with another terrace and a summer house for shade if needed. During the time we have been here we have had a cooling wind most days making 30 degree heat bearable.
The kitchen has been fine and serviceable for days we ate in, my daughters are now addicted to figs!!.
We have rented villas most summers and have never returned to the same villa but we would be tempted here.
This is not the villa for you if you want a busy nightlife on the doorstep but if you want to relax and go with the flow in a home from home then I would recomend
The villa can be found between Silves & St Bartolomew de Messines, it is 20 minutes from Carvoeiro, Armacao and Senhora da Rocha beach and 45 minutes from Faro Airport.
