A large swimming pool with comfortable loungers is where we spent most of our days taking turns to climb the dozen steps to replenish glasses of gin and tonic with ice from the freezer and lemons and limes plucked from trees in the garden. Shopping presented no problem whatsoever there being a well stocked supermarket with helpful staff, including a butcher who advised us on the best choice for the barbecue,only a few miles away. We also topped up our provisions when stopping at our "local" minimarket/café for a coffee or beer. Here despite their English being on a par with our Portuguese we always came away with a smile and exactly what we needed! The villa's purpose built barbecue we found invaluable being so easy to light and to cook on. We found driving in this part of Portugal no bother at all with motorway access about 100metres from the airport, stretching to about 15 minutes to Marques itself and minor roads practically devoid of other users. All in all a great holiday for chilling out and one that we wished we had stayed longer

Everything you need is available in the house, the decoration is stunning and the garden is too good to be true. The river is near the house and easy to reach. The relaxed communication with Frans and Liz is very good, Frans is very very kind. I can't wait to go back!
