High quality, spacious and well appointed

5 of 5
My family and I recently stayed at this property and were extremely impressed. The owner was very accommodating and helpful and the property itself was superb. It is a little remote so if quiet and solitude is what you are looking for this property is ideal. If you are wanting nightlife, this may not be suitable (the local bar mentioned is not really in walking distance and is more of a gathering place for the male locals than a bar). The property itself is extremely spacious and well appointed. Two of the bedrooms are on the ground floor which we found ideal as my elderly parents were with us. The property is set in a large wild garden full of rabbits and butterflies and beautiful trees giving it a feeling of you being somewhere rural even though in reality you are only a 10minute drive from the beautiful town of Tavira. The views beyond the garden are of rural undulating green countryside and makes this a beautiful tranquil location. The house itself is full of high quality furniture and appliances both inside and out. More glasses, crockery, and kitchen utensils than you will ever use and the large fridge freezer with ice maker was ideal. Our only niggle would be the bedding and towels. Most of the double beds had two single duvets where we would have preferred larger ones. However this is a small issue in the scheme of things! There were no pool towels supplied which was a little inconvenient but again in the scheme of things this was a minor issue. My family and I would highly recommend the property and considering the communication I had with the owner and their helpfulness I would summarise that any of their other properties would be excellent to stay in too. We had a wonderful, comfortable stay and would definitely choose to stay here again.

Fantastic place to stay!

5 of 5
What a fantastic place to stay for our Holiday, the villa has everything you could need, we couldn't have asked for anything better. Mark Fox the owner was a tremendous help with all of our needs. what more can i say the house, the grounds, the area, fantastic, would not hesitate to come again. Also hired Chef Mark (cheftoyoutavira) whilst there and that capped everything off nicely, great service.
