Wonderful stay in a beautiful part of the Algarve...

5 of 5
We were after a break from the English winter over Feb half-term, and this region of the Algarve and this wonderful villa did not disappoint. The villa was in a beautiful and convenient location, the views from the villa were stunning with the sound of nothing but bird song (and occasional chickens!), the villa itself was wonderfully equipped with all you could need. There was a long cold spell here before we arrived, but using the air-conditioners as heaters the place warmed up quite quickly. The log burner was also good for the cold evenings (cheap wood available at Matdiver in Loule). As I mentioned the villa's location was ideal, close to Sao Bras and Loule for shopping!. We did not go far during our stay, but can recommend the beach at Fuseta and at Quinta do Lago for some fantastic scenery and birds!, another recommended place is the Rio Formosa with some great walks through the nature reserve. Another enjoyable trip out is a walk by the river at Fonte da Benémola All in all a good holiday made better by the Owners Anne and Stuart and the local agent Alison, who was a great help when we had a problem with the pool heating (Anne refunded our money for the pool heating promptly) In summary if you want a break in the Algarvian countryside this villa ticks all the boxes, and we certainly consider staying here again if we come to the Algarve in the future.
