|Minimum Stay||3 nights|
The villa is located on the first rise of hills between Albufeira and Quarteira, about 5 miles from the coast. The hillside location and altitude gives a peaceful, slightly cooler environment with beautiful daytime and evening views, as well as easy access to nature walks in the valleys both in front of the house and in the next valley, that extend for tens of km. The house is spacious, comfortable and and well appointed. Nearby access to the motorway gives easy access to all of the major Algarve towns, nightspots, shopping centres and beaches. The pool, alfresco dining and barbecue are an integrated feature of the house and garden.
The quality of the build & furnishings far exceeded our expectations - it is absolutely beautiful and you have done an amazing job. Finding the 'tech' kit to such a high standard was a great surprise - tearing the kids away from the TV is a real trial. Wi-Fi is top spec and has kept me in contact with the office.
Your pool and BBQ area is fantastic - we're getting to know it very well as the weather is superb of course. Watching the sunset from the bedroom balcony has been a highlight of my holiday.
We are fully enjoying ourselves and admire the work you have done. We love the small details you applied and you literally thought of everything, compliments!
Thank you for the use of your beautiful house – a lovely retreat in the midst of a busy life. Anywhere with nightingales has to be good! Bee-eaters too! Not to mention the great view!
What a fabulous house! We haven’t seen any of the countryside, we just stayed here in the pool. Definitely coming back. Many thanks.
A pearl of portugality .. This idyllic villa situated looking down over a sun soaked resplendent algarve is as close to a perfect holiday residence as we have ever had the pleasure to stay in. A beautifully renovated building with fantastic features beguiles and immediately makes you feel at home. The quiet quintescance of the small Portuguese villages with the friendly locals and small restaurants and bars spoils you. The garden is beautifully maintained and acts as a terrific sun trap with a lovely refreshing pool to cool off in.
I may wax lyrical but it is with good reason, we are already booked to come back and I will counting the days, thank you Magdalene and Charles for sharing your wonderful home with us

When I think of the perfect holiday home, and we have rented many all over the world, this house it what comes to mind. From the initial warm and informative correspondences before, during and after our stay, to the stunning property itself, you couldn't ask for anything better. It has obviously been very cared for and meticulously designed; great flow throughout, super clean, lovely Portuguese tiles, tranquil village and fab pool. Nice touches like a welcome packet with the food essentials, amazing TV and entertainment center. The only sad part was leaving!
The beaches and more touristy area are 10-20 mins away. If you want to stay in a fast paced busy town with lots of nightlife this is not the rental for you. There are great seafood restaurants within the area that they recommended that are delicious.
Thank you Charles and Magdalena for sharing your home with us. We will be back!
