We met Constantino in the village of Estoi at night and followed him up roads that got smaller and rougher, it was quite the adventure that ended in a wonderful surprise. The entrance to the house is impressive and is like an oasis after the hot dry approach. We were so excited exploring the house and property, there was so much space and room, we immediately thought that we should have brought guests. The house has everything you could need from hairdryers to washing machines, good wii fii and loads of spaces to chill out both inside and out. The master bedroom is a great size with a huge bed and its own patio which leads down to the pool. The master bedroom is the only room that has ac. Claudia came once during our stay to change the linen, towels and tidy up. The pool area is the best part of this property without a doubt. The photos are accurate. The size of the pool was perfect. We were concerned that pool sizes can be misleading in some advertisements but this pool will not disappoint. It has a shower and it surrounded by loungers, tables and chairs, a shaded area with a full size table tennis table which provided us with hours of entertainment. There is also a bbq area outside. Its a very quiet area and Im not sure if taxis would have brought us there. This house was above our normal budget but we decided to treat ourselves his year and we certainly feel like we got a treat. Although the place was quiet, the teenagers really loved it, the house, pool etc certainly fills in any gaps and we enjoyed our time together. Thank You.

Excellent view, the sea, the cities of Olhao and Faro, the islands Armona and Farol. The Algarve was hot but the pool was very refreshing. Hard to leave.
