Guestbook comments from the manager
I can't believe it has been a week already since we left the villa in Figueira. There were 3 generation of family on this holiday and I speak for us all when I say we have the greatest holiday experience. I am a convert to Portugal now and I think my parents in law may be too, and this could cause a problem as they own property in Spain! The villa was idillic, in the most perfect location. We all enjoyed the family feel the house offered, as it clearly is a well loved family home. Everything we could possibly need was catered for and having supplies in the fridge on arrival was brilliant. My children were so happy to spend the day in the pool, playing boule or Cluedo and they loved the freedom the villa offered them both.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the villa or your company. In fact we are already planning our next trip and seeing is we can persuade friends to travel with us too as I see that you offer Casa Alexandra just down the track!
Many thanks again and I hope to be in touch early 2015 to arrange our next trip.
