Ann organised a driver, Vasvi to collect us from Faro which was very convenient. The house is small despite being 3 bedrooms. My husband and son are 6ft 2, so what I would say is that the staircase and bathroom are not made for larger people. Having said that, we did get used to it over the time. The kitchen had everything and with supermarkets all around making meals was easy. We arrived on a Friday and discovered that in the height of summer you must book a table at least two day's ahead! It is very busy. The ferry to the beach is regular and efficient and the beaches are all blue flag ie very clean. Tavira is a very pretty town but I would suggest a car if you want to go further afield.

                                                                                                      5 of 5

We have just returned after spending 10 days there and we are all wishing we were still there. The villa has a very homely feel, its like you are borrowing someones home for your holiday. It is very well equipped and had everything we needed. On our arrival it was clean and tidy and during our stay we had visits from the pool cleaner, gardener and cleaners to help keep it tidy. We were a group of 4 adults and 6 children (ranging in ages from 16 to 7 years). The pool was perfect, the kids were in it everyday, morning and afternoon. The garden is split into 2 sections with the pool on one side and the games area the other which works really well. The grounds of the villa are very secure and can be locked up to give parents that extra peace of mind. Andrew was on hand by phone to help with any concerns we may have had, but we had none, our stay was hassle-free. Manta Rota is a small village very much off the tourist track, which was just what we wanted. In the town there are lots of places to eat (we would highly recommend Mars Bar) and buy ice creams - a must for the kids. There are also 2 supermarkets within a 5 minute walking distance where you pick up everything you need. The beach is stunning, so clean and only a 10 minute walk from the villa. It can be crowed but if you just walk in either direction along the shore for 10/15minutes the crowds thin out and its a lot quieter. Its very accessible as well with a long wooden gangplank - we visited nearly everyday. We didn't hire a car but this didn't stop us getting out and about as it is only a 25minute walk to the train station in the next village of Cacela. The trains are very good value for money and were running on time for all our trips to Tavira, Faro and Vila Real. I would highly recommend Casa Betel to family and friends and anyone reading this review. We would definitely return.
