Really lovely stay again with glorious sunshine and real t-shirt and short weather! Nice location as easy 5 minute walk to lovely local shops and restaurants. House is nicely laid out and suited my older parents as they had easy access to the kitchen, own bedroom, bathroom and outdoor level sitting space with two tables ( one for the morning breakfast and one to catch the last of the daytime sun and beautiful sunsets). would certainly stay again ( now our 2nd time) and would recommend to friends and family. Don't miss the market at Tabua on sunday, Visiting Seia and Mount Torres!
I'm loathed to review Clive's villa, as want to keep this hidden gem to myself for fear he'll get too booked up. We are seasoned travellers and have stayed in some pretty fantastic places worldwide; this is the first time I have rebooked to go back to the same place EVER. I think the wow factor of this property speaks for itself when I say I rebooked within 10 minutes of arriving. This is a beautiful and large house which works well for families travelling together as two bedrooms are in one side of the house and effectively self contained and the other two are in the other side. All rooms open onto gardens and are all very large and beautifully decorated. Our master enjoyed grand dimensions, a walk in robe and a luxury ensuite; our daughters were sharing a room the size of a small apartment! The gardens and grounds are spectacularly kept and the large swimming pool, bar / pool table area (with lots of games) and outdoor kitchen (when lit up with fairy lights it reminded me of a greek taverna) keep everyone entertained. This villa is nestled away in a rural setting which suited us, as this meant the cost of eating out locally was competitive and who needs to venture far when you have beautiful views and an amazing place to stay. The grounds at night, adorned with lanterns are spectacular. The real plus for me however, was the efforts Clive and a whole team (all speaking English) put into preparing for our stay and welcoming us! I am very much looking forward to returning next August. Thank you Clive (and also Lucy and Nick). One word of caution - take your insect repellent if bugs like nibbling on you as I did suffer a bit, so will go fully armed next year (this is a minor bug bare if you pardon the pun for such an amazing place).
