The flat was well equipped, beautifully clean and provided plenty of room for the two of us during a long stay. The owner was always responsible and available.

Set in a highly exclusive and very beautiful road right opposite a top class golf course. We loved the championship quality pool table. Best I have ever played on. We swam in the lovely pool every morning and evening, and found it easy to roll the cover back over the pool every evening so the heating could work to maximum effect. Comfortable swimming temperature in February. The fish and vegetable market in the old part of Quarteira was a real find for us. The owner George handled our booking of the villa perfectly. We arrived to find the villa immaculately clean with a bottle of wine left out on the table. The pool and garden maintenance people came twice in out week and kept everything up to the highest standards without ever interfering with our privacy and sense of ownership of the house and grounds. We emailed George a few days before arrival and asked if he knew of how to hire bikes. He found the right company for us. They delivered top class bike to the villa at a very good price. My son and I had brand new suspension mountain bikes and enjoyed great riding along the coast and up on to some challenging off road tracks in the hills north of the villa. We were spoilt for choice with great golf courses, from the world class ones that adjoin the villa to smaller 9 hole courses like Balaia where they welcomed our 9 year old and supplied clubs and shoes for us all. By turning right out of out front drive we were able to walk to the local bakery in 5 minutes and also reach Brown's Sports Club in the same time to play tennis or squash or enjoy good coffee in the morning or drinks and home made hamburgers in the evening. If you can't find the bakery,,,,ask for directions in Browns. Its tucked just down the lane by the orange groves and does great morning pastries. The marina is surrounded by great bars and restaurants. The cinema surround sound in the villa is great so take some DVDs. Thank you for an exceptional holiday!
