Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a great holiday - thank you so much for all your help with the booking, getting to the villa and the lovely welcome from Angie.

The pool and the views were great- just what we wanted. The location also worked well for us - we found Aldi in Olahao ( probably spelt wrong) easily and used the supermarkets in moncarpacho. Nicola's was great for a seafood lunch and chill in the square people watching.

Things we liked about the villa itself- besides the pool and views!!!!

Size and layout- worked well for us as a small family and can see it working well for a larger group

Kitchens well equipped

Use of washing machine

Upstairs terrace

Fig, lemon, almond and pomegranate trees

Privacy and security

We love Portugal and intend to return to the east algarve in the future. We will certainly use Jacaranda holidays and recommend you to family and friends.

Thanks once again
