Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you for letting us stay in your daughter's beautiful home.

We loved the place: the large swimming pool was great, we spent many happy hours in and around the pool, the poolside shower was very convenient; the well stocked and maintained gardens created a beautiful setting; the indoor facilities were also smashing with a bathroom to each bedroom.

we spent a lot of time having barbecues and around the poolside.

We would definitely recommend this property.

Great property. Great location. Perfect holiday.

  • 5 of 5

We found this fabulous property to be exactly as described. It was so well appointed, very clean and maintained. It's in a perfect, quiet, rural location although quick and easy to reach larger towns. The rooms were large, spacious and comfortable; the kitchen very well equipped; the pool, just perfect.

Nearby restaurants were good quality and value. We especially enjoyed Hortas which was particularly inexpensive whilst serving great food to suit all tastes.

Supermarkets, shops and restaurants were easy to find in the very pretty town nearby, Sao Bras de Alportel.

The owner, João lives just across the road and was very kind and attentive. Thank you João for allowing us to stay in your property.

I would not hesitate to recommend this villa and it is our hope that we will be able to return at a future time. I would prefer however, to keep this property a well-kept secret!

a perfect holiday helped by a perfect villa

  • 5 of 5

the Villa was exactly as described in the listing details and also by the two reviews left by previous guests. very quiet location and rural, but not isolated as the owners live in a farmhouse across the road, owner is very helpful and always there if you need him. I would totally recommend this villa to anyone wanting to stay in the area. It is just 5 mins from a good sized town Sao Bras, with cafes, supermarkets, restaurants, petrol stations and daily market. approx 25min drive to a good beach at Fuseta, get the water taxi across the river for 1.50 Euro. strongly recommend Hortas restaurant approx 1/2 km East of Sao Bras on the N270. Fish/Steak/Kebabs loads of choice for approx 10 euros/ person. Could go on and on but I don't want our secret to be discovered. we will be going back.

Perfect family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a really good holiday. The villa was everything we

hoped it would be and more.

The description of the villa was accurate.

The villa is very spacious and well appointed.

Very quiet and peaceful which is what we wanted.

It was the first time our grandchildren (aged 6 & 4 years) had been abroad for holiday and they loved it. They spent a lot of time in the pool.

The owner, Joe and his wife were very helpful and friendly.

Very easy drive to all facilities, beaches, water parks etc.

We would recommend this villa.
