The villa really is as large and secluded as the photos suggest. It serves as the owners home for much of the year and is furnished and equipped to a very high standard. The paintings on the wall are all Margaret's own (this is a good thing as she is a former art teacher!) and everything has the feel of quality. When the villa is rented the owners live in an apartment underneath the main house, so they were around and about if you needed them but were certainly never intrusive and the house, pool and garden were very much ours. The setting is perfect for an away from it all break. The road past the house is very quiet with only occasional traffic and you will probably hear more birds than cars. I never quite figured out where the land of this property ended and the next began, but we would walk for an hour without meeting a fence or another soul. There's a very nice restaurant 5 minutes away and a 15 minute drive gets you to Alvor, Portimao or Monchique.
