We had a fabulous holiday and can't fault the villa it has everything you need for a fantastic break. The villa is a great base to explore the local area and information provided by Peter was very helpful. This was our 4th time to the area and we ventured to Seville, Aquashow and took the Zipwire from Spain to Portugal. We would recommend this villa !!

Very well equipped and comfortable, plenty of room for the whole family, excellent outside space and pool, peaceful but not too far to local amenities and easy access to beautiful, sandy beaches. We wouldnt hesitate to recommend this villa.

                                                                                                    From the moment we were welcomed to the villa we felt relaxed & at ease, everything was as described although the photos didn't do the villa justice as it was everything & more than shown. The quiet village of Monte Francisco seems a million miles away from the hustle & bustle of the real world & a perfect place to chill. we were a party of 12 ages ranging from 4 up to 63 & everybody had their own place for a little peace if required. A beautiful pool area was a massive hit with young & old & the wonderful beach of Praia Verde only a short drive away. A couple of interesting nights were spent in Lupi's restaurant, food was excellent & Luis was very entertaining & generous giving free children's meals & complimentary wine for the grown ups. also I would highly recommend the restaurant Sabores de Beira just on the outskirts of the village especially the Cataplana at 20 euro for 2 people amazing value & great service. Further afield I would highly recommend Pezinhos n'aeia overlooking Praia Verde & Restaurante Porto De Recreio in VRS Antonio Marina. I cannot speak highly enough about the owner of the villa, Harvey who kept me informed from time of booking with little titbits of information just to whet the appetite. I would recommend this property to anyone who would like to relax in this tranquil part of real Portugal
