From the moment we were welcomed by Nelson and shown the villa, we knew it was going to be a lovely relaxing holiday, which it was. Like others said the villa was just beautiful and the owners were so accommodating, we would love to come back. Thanks to such a lovely family for all your kindness.

The villa (and bungalow) are very clean and spacious . The pool area is superb . The villa is quite a distance from albufeira so We always use luxclube airport transfers to take us into albufeira and the airport run . (Very well priced and great service. They are a must for the holiday to get you around ) The owner of the villa (David ) is a real pleasure to deal with and after another great stay we will now rebook for next year . Overall a great holiday .

The accommodation is first class and the gardens and pool were enjoyed by all. The villa is in a quiet rural setting and is totally secure. Easy access to Albufeira and Vilamoura. We spent a few evenings at the Mato a Vista restaurant that's about a five minute drive away and would definitely recommend a visit there. Altogether a great two weeks and would love to return at sometime in the near future.
