Great villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay here. The villa and pool were fantastic and the way it is set up makes it great for families with children.The villa is set in a very peaceful area and not at all overlooked. It is also well located and the majority of places we visited were only a short drive away. Silves itself was also very pleasent and well worth a look around there are also a number of good restaurants. Susie was really helpful and very thoughtful. We had everything we needed for a great holiday many thanks we definately recomend this place.

Great place to relax ...

  • 5 of 5

Yet another visit and we'll be back next year.

Perfect location, away from all the activity at the coastal towns, but not too far away if that's what you're looking for.

We just need tranquillity, a well appointed villa, effective air con, good wifi and mobile signal, a great pool and a supermarket only a short drive away.

If this is your perfect holiday, then this is the place !!

Silves, under 15 mins by car, can provide bars and restaurants ... and good smart taxis to get you home !!

A perfect location for a relaxing holiday......

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I have stayed at this villa on three occasions and next year (2017) will make it 4 times !! Over the years, we have also rented a number of other properties and this villa (together with one in Scottsdale) are our joint favourites.

We wanted somewhere away from the crowds where we could just relax (as close to a 'home from home' environment as possible) and do nothing but relax, sit by the pool, eat, drink and sleep !! There are lots of things to occupy the more energetic, but for us this is our 'tranquility holiday'.

It's in a very quiet location (but not remote), has a great pool with a great view, is very close (by car) to the shops, supermarkets and restaurants in Silves and not far from the coast. Susie (the owner) is very quick in responding to texts and dealing with any 'issues'. We have only ever had one problem - when the water supply just stopped - but as Susie reassured us, this was a water main problem in a nearby lane and would soon be resolved.

Mobile reception (for those renters who find this important) is excellent as is the wifi signal. The air-con system is very effective and whilst there are many places to visit in the area, as we've ticked those boxes on previous bookings, we spend most of our time at the villa.

It is a very spacious villa for 2 people but still cosy and if you are looking for a 'pool holiday' - this is place to rent !

A home from home

Very comfortable and well equipped villa. It really was a home from home. The neighbours are friendly and Sue couldn't do enough to make our stay pleasant and relaxing. One of our best holidays ever!
