The photos on the website are accurate and show what you are getting. The villa was spotlessly clean and very well appointed. All bedrooms have insect screens with AC in the Master. Pool was on the cool side but early in the season and not cold enough to stop my wife using it nearly every day! Owners really nice people to deal with and provided lots of local info and suggestions for trips out. We wanted to see a bit, spend time on quieter beaches and enjoy the beautiful villa. This was perfect. Mid holiday cleaning and linen change put villa back to as good as the day we arrived - excellent. You must visit the restaurant opposite the church in Alcantarilha, Salgados beach, Lagos and Tavira. Cape St Vincent (Lands End) also worth a drive out. Lots of other nice places but we thought these were best picks. Villa is 40 minutes from Faro Airport and easy distances to both ends of Algarve for trips out. Choice of supermarkets within close proximity as well as petrol stations.
