We went with another family making 10 of us in total but there was more than enough space. The owners also left some welcome items due to the time we arrived and we're very helpful. The villa is very well kept and very clean with as new appliances. You do need a car as the nearest village is a mile away but there is a taxi company to get you home if you chose to have food and drinks at the village. Fuesta, Olhao and Tavira all with 30 mins drive to see the eastern Algarve. I would easily recommend for a group holiday especially if you like remote places and you save money by having BBQ's and drinks rather than beach fronted restaurants.

However on arrival it turned out to be even better than it looks. A beautiful converted farmhouse with masses of outside space and a beautifully clean pool. There is every thing you could possibly need equipment wise and enough towels to supply the whole village :o) Graham & Bernadette made us very welcome and although we did not see much of them as they made sure that we had our privacy. We left feeling that we had made some new friends. On our next visit to Portugal we will definitely be booking this property.

The villa is very large, cool ,clean and comfortable and has everything you need from a home from home. It is tastefully decorated and furnished and has provided us with a very relaxing holiday. It's lovely to have beaches nearby and the luxury of a pool for those really lazy days. The Eastern Algarve is well worth a visit - the people are great, the food delicious and the prices very reasonable. We found some excellent restaurants venturing inland and also in Moncarapacho. There are plenty of places to visit with lots of history instead of a beach day. Jason, the owner, is a delight. He always responded very promptly to any emails and provided us with a friendly and efficient experience. Thank you Jason.
