Restful and restorative

5 of 5
We recently stayed for 10 nights in this charming cottage. We were met by Jane and her husband Graeham and were immediately welcomed with warmth and caring which lasted throughout our stay. The cottage had everything we needed and the sole use of the beautiful pool was wonderful. There is so much to see and do in the Algarve and we enjoyed visiting the quieter tourist areas within the region. Tavira is a pretty town and for a quiet and beautiful beach we liked Manta Rota. Alcoutin, which borders Spain, has a small river beach and a castle. Driving back through the hills was great with hardly any traffic. Alte is lovely and so is Loule, just 10 minutes away with a wonderful Saturday market. We saw so many fabulous sights but what really made our break were Jane and Graeham. You couldn't wish for nicer hosts, who also invited us to join them for a few social events. Their two dogs, Charlie and Megan are pretty special too!

Great location for a family gathering

5 of 5
We had a great week staying here with a family group from grandparents to babies. The heated pool in particular was fantastic. The owner (Henrique) was really helpful. Interesting places close by to explore and safe beaches for the youngsters to enjoy the sand and water. Amazing fish markets (particularly in Ohloa) and great set up for barbecuing at the villa. Beautiful rural location and views from the villa but having a car is a must as there are no shops etc within walking distance.
