                                                              We were four women who rented the villa for a week. We had a fantastic holiday. The villa was exactly as advertised lovely room sizes and everything you could need for cooking etc.... It was very clean and there was even food and drink put in the fridge for us as we arrived late. Ken who owns the villa was so lovely collecting us from the airport and very helpful with suggestions of where to eat and things to do. We spend lots of time in little courtyard and having the dip pool was really great for cooling off with lots of towels the villa was very well equipped. It is very well located we didn't have a car and could easily walk to restaurants and supermarkets and other local shops. We all had a great time and would definitely recommend this villa.

                                                              We spent a month at this villa in February 2016. The villa has everything you would need for home from home stay. The kitchen is large and functional. Both the kitchen & the dining area have patio doors overlooking the lovely secluded garden with a large patio area and builtin Barbecue. The living room is very spacious with lots of sofas, ideal for big groups, there is a patio door leading to a balcony overlooking the square at the front of the property We especially enjoyed the fireplace as the evenings can be chilly but there are also reversed cycle air conditioning/heating in all the rooms. The villa is exactly as presented in the pictures on the Web site. The location couldn't be better for beach lovers which is less than 5 minutes walk away. The beach is amazing, It's clean, wide and stretches as far as the eye can see. The beach bar close by is fab. lovely food & friendly service, we often just have a drink & sit on their chairs right on the black & read our books or you can rent loungers for a very reasonable price. We loved to walk along the beach to Monto Gordo takes appx 15 minutes then enjoy a drink in one of the beach bars while you watch the fishermen mend their nets or wander into the town with it many restaurants & market stalls. This are is flat and very popular with cyclists, you can rent bicycles in Monto Gordo. If you want a taste of living in Portugal in an area that's not too touristy, this is your spot. There are so many lovely places to explore in the Eastern Algarve or hop over into Spain, we drove to Seville for a day, which is about 90 minutes away, what a beautiful city. There is a great Bakery/supermarket on the corner of the square (wonderful fresh bread & cakes) with its attached cafe/bar. This became a favourite place to pop into for a nightcap & watch the locals in the evening. €1 for a beer or a glass of wine, €0.70 for a coffee Can't beat this place.

                                                              We spent a month at this villa. Our hosts were welcoming and accommodating. The villa has everything you would need for everyday living, entertaining and holiday enjoyment. The kitchen is large and functional. Seating for twelve in the dining room and on the deck was just great. The bedrooms are quite soundproof so was great for late nighters and early risers. We especially enjoyed the fireplace as in March , evenings were chilly. The pool area is sheltered and enabled us to enjoy the sun while blocking cool breezes. We loved the tapas night arranged by Andrew. The chefs were so personable. Their company was as enjoyable as the food. The villa is exactly as presented in the promotional pictures. The location couldn't be better for beach lovers. The beach is one of the best in the world. It's clean, wide and stretches as far as the eye can see. The beach bar close by was sweet and had the most amazing, friendly servers who continually helped us with our Portuguese. We could walk to Monte Gordo for happy hour at the many and varied bars there. If you want a taste of living in Portugal in an area that's not too touristy, this is your spot. There are so many day trips you can take that are within an hour or two away. It doesn't have the many restaurants or nightlife that you'd get in Albufeira. But you can mix with the locals at the corner pub to watch football and have a bevy or two . €.50 for a glass of wine and €1.00 for a beer. Can't beat this place.
