                                      We were a little worried when we booked this as it looked too good to be true on the website. 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.

                                      Good place to stay

                                      4 of 5
                                      The apartment was very nice and comfortable, finished to a high standard, was very well equipped with a lovely view and was private enough. The facilities are very good and it was good to have the secure underground car park too. We really liked the swimming pool and area although more sun loungers were required as it was busy which was the only down side. Perfect place to relax and holiday. Fuseta is a traditional Portuguese fishing town with lovely beaches, restaurants and super new tapas bars. We missed not having access to sport channels on the tv and would have taken another device to watch if we had known that was not available.

                                      Take me back

                                      5 of 5
                                      There was 8 of us and not one of us could fault the Villa. We arrived quite late due to a problem at the car rental place. However the person who had greeted us was very nice and understood. We also did have a bit of trouble following the directions but that was just a minor issue. After we got to the house we as able to properly set up the Sat-Nav and we no longer had a problem getting around. We spent most of our time at the villa in the pool or jacuzzi. We took the advice to hire cars for the weekend and we are very glad we did as it is very secluded and the nearest supermarket we found was a 5/10 min drive away from us. I would say the Internet connection could be better as you can only really get signal in the living room or that ground level anyone on the 1st or lower level cannot access it. The property was clean and there was more then enough room for all of us. We found however there was not a lot of room on the sofa for all of us all the time and would feel that a bar and pool table would be a welcome addition to the place but we would go back year after year without it to. The pool was warm no matter what time you used it and the lights stay on by the pool till about 2am. One downside to the pool is that bugs, dust, dirt and leafs do go into the pool when your using it, but we did try to keep it as clean as we could using the skimmer. We did have to call the pool cleaner out once and when we did come back it was spotless and we was able to drive right in again. I would gladly tell anyone to go to the property but do make sure you hire a car. There are so many places that we ate however one I must recommend is Restaurante Prazeres which is in Olhao, they do amazing surf and turf. However no matter where you go the food is amazing and the portions are a lot better then what you would get in England.
