About Isabel Hodgson

We live in England and both work full time. We have two adult children who are married. We all love holidaying at the Villa and its especially good when we all go together.

Isabel Hodgson purchased this Villa in 2008

Why Isabel Hodgson chose Pêra

We purchased a ruin in a large plot of land about 7 years ago - we fell in love with the area because of its tranquility and accessibility to all the amenities. We could see that it would be a fabulous place to build our dream house - which is what we had done in 2008 - thanks to a terrific portuguese builder. The Villa has a large sun terrace which overlooks the surrounding countryside which is great just for sitting and relaxing and a barbecue area by the pool and have recently added a large grass area to the side of the house. We have been told by a previous visitor that the photos do not do the house justice.

What makes this Villa unique

This is a large property in a good sized plot. The Villa is only 35 mins drive to Faro airport and about 10 mins drive to the local long sandy beach. The house is situated in the middle of the Algarve so accessible to all the amenities. Amendoeira Golf and Sports Club is a few minutes away.

Não se consegue sinal de rede móvel de qualquer operadora nem dentro nem fora da casa. Não tem internet, nem wi-fi. TV só os 7 canais Portugueses. A chave é deixada num cofre no exterior da casa e nunca tivemos contacto com os donos.

                                                              We agree that we do not have a soup wand in the Villa. We do have a whisk but not a soup wand. We have never had a complaint about not having a soup wand or enough pots and pans before, and will address the point raised. The mobile phone connection is poor but we have no control over that. We also do not advertise as having WiFi, what we do advertise is that there is free WiFi at the local bistro, or a dongle can be purchased. I was in contact with the visitors prior to them visiting the Villa and during their stay but I do not live in Portugal so cannot visit the Villa personally whilst they are there. During their stay the visitors emailed me concerning the air con that they thought was malfunctioning, it was actually functioning perfectly well, and this was addressed within a day. I am sorry that they were disappointed about the Villa not having a soup wand and only 4 saucepans and two frying pans.
