On arrival we found that the previous party had left at 7am whilst we arrived in the village in the morning but sat in the restaurant until 4pm awaiting entry. The welcome pack was partially in existence and the maid service never materialised so we washed our own sheets. We also found that for the two twelve days of our stay the restaurant, the only one in the village, closed two days after we arrived and re-opened the night before we left. All that aside the villa was lovely, the area easily accessible to coast with amenities within close driving distance and we would recommend the villa to thers and go again ourselves.

                                                                                                      5 of 5

TV arrangements are very good with main UK terrestrial channels and lots of English language channels on the Portuguese satellite. Wifi works well.The villa is perfect for a quiet peaceful holiday. only downside is that you have to drive to get to shops and restaurants. Tavira is about 15 minutes drive and a big supermarket (Pingo) is only 10 minutes. There is a shaded patio area but no shade next to the pool. Managing Agents very helpful and friendly. all in all best villa we have ever had -
