It's even better than in the photographs. We were a group of 5 with 3 grown up children and found there was ample room for all of us. The pool was a really good size. We particularly liked the outside eating area and made a lot of use of this and the barbeque. It was good to have the tv with extensive dvd collection so we could take a break inside during the hottest part of the day. If the sky is clear, patio and roof top terrace are good for star gazing as there is very little artificial light so you can see loads of stars. The house feels quite remote due to it being in the middle of the countryside and at the end of country road it is in fact less than 30 mins drive to the airport and to several beautiful beaches, there were also shops and supermarkets close by. We were really surprised how close everything was. On recommendation from Tetyana we visited Fuseta beach and took the ferry out to the island beach. Fuesta beach was beautiful and less busy than I expected during peak holiday season. We also visited Tavira town and the island beach there. Tavira Island beach is much bigger and has a choice of several restaurants, small shops and cafes. Much busier than Fuseta but still nice. We also visited the nearby roman ruins of Milreu near Estoi and a bit further away at Amancil the blue and white tiled Church of Sao Lourenco de Almancil. At Casa Quintinha you're ideally placed to visit further afield as it's close to the motorway but we didn't venture far. We only stayed a week, were very sad to leave and would definitely return if we decide to come back to this area of Portugal. It was really helpful having Tetyana so close incase we had any problems and Stephen was really helpful and responded quickly to questions before the holiday.

The Villla is quirky with a fantastic pool. The Property Manager was extremely helpful and always contactable and nothing was a problem to him. The Villa and Pool kept clean. The Villa was very well equipt, peaceful and relaxing.
