The apartment was perfect for us - the ground floor location was convenient and having an enclosed outside space was a lovely bonus. The centre of the town with shops and restaurants is about 15-20 minutes walk away. We mainly used the beach on the lagoon by the town, as the water was calm and good for children, but you can also take a very short ferry to the beach on the outside of the adjoining island which is enormous. We would definitely recommend this location to family and friends.

                                                                                                      5 of 5

For us it’s our ideal destination, it’s got everything you could want for a relaxing escape. The views from the villa are very impressive and the gardens are lovely and very well maintained. It’s so peaceful and chilling on an inflatable while floating in the pool is the best way to relax. There are sun beds all around the villa so you can enjoy the sun from any position. For us, the main reason we return, apart from it being a little piece of paradise, is Joan. Joan is one of the best people you could wish to meet, she’s charming, funny , charismatic , great story teller, generous and she will do whatever she can to make your stay enjoyable. We are proud to now call her a friend. We will have to mention Jay, who is one of Joan’s friends, hes a very knowledgeable man and we have plenty of interesting discussions and at the end we decide that I’m right ........again. We really missed Brumus and Effy this year , they were both characters in their own right. However there is now a new edition to the gang and his name is Bear. He is one of the nicest, most pleaseant dogs you could wish to meet, I had to take him out of Jill’s case at least twice because she wanted to take him home. Leapold is still his narky looking self 😀 If you are planning to visit other places the villa is in an ideal situation and as easy access to all motorways. Driving in Portugal is easy as there is never a lot of traffic, the motorways are virtually empty. For us this is our perfect holiday destination and I can’t put into words just how beautiful and relaxing this place is but I can guarantee that you will have a lovely time and make life long memories. Right Joan if that review doesnt get us in the will then nothing will 😀
