Wonderful villa!!

5 of 5
Absolutely lovely villa with all the facilities we needed accommodate a toddler and a one year old, owners couldn't have been more helpful, arranging a camp bed for our daughter and a travel cot for the baby. Pool and garden are beautiful and all the bedrooms are large, comfortable and en suite with excellent showers! Easy to get to beautiful places like Alvor and Lagos, we will definitely book again when we come back to Portugal in future!!

Outstanding Holiday

5 of 5
Definitely one of the best villas we have stayed at . Melissa and Clive are really friendly and helpful. We loved the fact that Melissa was waiting for us to arrive to show us round and explain everything , so often your just left a key and have to muddle through . The food hamper is also a really lovely thought and much appreciated when you first arrive . The area is so peaceful with beautiful views . The villa was well looked after and with plenty to do . The games room got used daily . We didn’t hire a car , but used the local taxis to go to the supermarket and Alvor, they were reasonably priced and friendly. We all had a great holiday and will definitely be looking to return in the near future .
