  • 5 of 5

"The church bells and the noise from the near-by taverna were the only critiscisms.

The hosts were brilliant, very friendly and accommodating in every respect. As was the accommodation, with everything provided in the room in order to have a relaxing self-catering holiday without any fuss.

The sardine evening was absolutely brilliant!

We could not fault the cleaner's efforts.

The pool was excellent!

The boat trip was very relaxing and enjoyable too.

Could not fault the accommodation!

There were two rules, (1) lock the gate behind you, for privacy and (2) do not try to grill the sardines on the gas barbeque, ask to use Fransisco's own charcoal barbeque!

The owners could not have been friendlier."

"Nous avons passé une superbe semaine chez Fransisco et Filoména... accueil chaleureux et équipements confortables. Fransisco est aux petits soins tous les jours et il nous a servi de guide sur toutes les visites intéressantes à faire dans l'Algarve. Si nous revenons au Portugal, nous y reviendrons avec plaisir. Superbe adresse ++++++++++++"

«Excelente! Foram umas férias realmente bem passadas, aconselho vivamente. Além da simpatia e disponibilidade do Sr. Francisco e da D. Mena, o local é perfeito. Sossegado com uma piscina óptima, bem diferente da confusão dos hotéis, a zona é lindíssima e com praias maravilhosas. 5*»

  • 5 of 5

"An excellent place to stay, very clean, very tidy, comfortable, an old church and bell nearby, lovely! And right in the middle of beautiful surroundings. The Host, what can I say, not only the perfect host but also very kind, friendly and generous and so is his wife. Just before we left they made for all of us (8) a typical Portuguese style sardines BBQ with a lovely salad and plenty of very nice wine. Thank you for a lovely time, Boudien & Franciscus"

  • 5 of 5

"Fenomenal. Sitio agradable, tranquilo, limpio y bien situado. Queda cerca de todo: playas tranquilas, playas con ambiente, deporte, restaurantes, lugares de interés turístico. Hemos recorrido Algarve con base en Porches: mejor imposible. Además, la familia que lo regenta es atenta, discreta, amable y muy detallista. Ha merecido la pena. Comparado con otros sitios, el precio es barato para todo lo que ofrece porchesvila: piscina exclusiva, barbacoa, calma, seguridad, ningún problema para aparcar, etc. Seguro que otro año repito. Muy recomendable."
