The studio is a good size for 2 people. It was clean and we had plenty of towels. The kitchen was very well equipped and had much more than we needed for our short stay. It was great having the pool just outside the studio, perfect for my young son and there were lots of sunbeds and umbrellas. Lis our host was really friendly and hospitable. Bordeira is a quiet village with a shop and a few cafes. I would recommend a car for exploring the area which is more traditional Algarve. Faro and the coast are about 20 minute drive and there are lots of great options for beaches. We had a lovely relaxing stay and would love to come back again.
In the case of Casa Manjericao we may have discovered the perfect spot for a family celebration in the sun. For 2 weeks in August our family of 13, spanning 3 generations and a range of 70 years descended on this spacious, yet utterly charming property, well maintained and spotlessly clean. The large pool and stunning tennis court were popular with all ages and the range of terraces offered plenty of options for shade and for outdoor eating, courtesy of the BBQ and an extensive choice of food from a good selection of local shops.
The owner Beryl, for whom attention to detail is clearly important, was attentive right from the time of booking and with the topical advice received we arrived equipped already with a plan for making the most of local delights including restaurants, beaches, water-parks and entertainment, all accessible within a 10 to 25 minute car ride.
For the first few days of our stay we caught the back end of the 2018 Iberian Heatwave yet the villa's location set high in the hills overlooking the coastal plain attracted a fresh, cooling breeze most of the time and a particular highlight of our wonderful holiday was watching the sun go down whilst identifying the planets. Casa Manjericao comes highly recommended and we can't wait to return!
