                                                                                                      4 of 5

The local Bakery was brilliant for fresh bread & breakfast pastries, with a supermarket a little further down the road catering for the essentials ...Villa Colibri is huge, clean and well maintained, the kitchen stocked with an abundance of crockery, cutlery, glassware & pot/pans, & don't forget the B.B.Q. therefore no need to eat out if you don't wish too. That said please try out Henrique/ Teresa's restaurant in town, you won't be disappointed. We as a family of 15 (6 up to 63) ate there twice in our weeks stay...Wonderful. The cinema room was a great addition that I thought would never be used.... How wrong was I, most of the party watched at least 1 film ( inc me ) with the children loving it. (Pool, film & pool & then film in the evening) The very large outside table for breakfast (in the shade),evening meals on the very large table inside to get out of the sun. Pool fantastic & had to be the focal point for everyone, that & the weather....Hot, Hot Hot Well done Henrique & Teresa for a great holiday, nothing was to much trouble, lent me his Sat-Nav, used his Drone to film us having fun, told me all about the local markets, beaches, & shops. There are a few things I might add, the sunbeds have seen better days & could do with more, air con in some rooms could be improved, generally the villa was a little tired, but nothing that would stop me returning. Once again thank you Henrique & Teresa

The goodies in the welcome pack are delicious, particularly the custard tarts, and of a high quality. The villa itself is so clean and comfortable that you feel at home within minutes of walking through the door. Karl is a great host, leaving you to enjoy your holiday in peace, but at the end of a phone should the need arise. All this, coupled with perfect weather for the entire two weeks, is now making us quite "villa-sick" for Moncarapacho!
