The heated pool was heaven. The villa is well situated with sao bras and loule only a ten minute drive and Faro and the airport about twenty minutes. Excellent wi-fi which was a must for us. All in all it was a great holiday, good value and thoroughly recommended. Matt and Emma Wilson.

The welcome hamper was amazing...Views over the hills were breath taking, especially relaxing in the hot tub. The pool, gardens, and terraces were magnificent. The villa was spacious, clean and very comfortable. Mags and Ian are very good attentive hosts Would return in a heartbeat

Although the pictures of the villa are spectacular it doesn’t prepare you for the Wow -factor when you walk through the front door. The descriptions, layout and all facilities were perfectly described, the property was in excellent condition and extremely clean. When we walked in we were impressed by the light, spacious and stylish interior. The villa is amazing, plenty of room. The accommodation is furnished to a very high standard and is very comfortable, The decor is very tasteful and fitting to the house, whose architecture gives a beautiful feeling of space. The kitchen is very well equipped for eating in, cable TV and wireless internet are available, the house is fully airconditioned. The outside space was spectacular. The swimming pool was excellent and is quite large for a holiday villa. The pool is suitable for all abilities with steps down and as well as a superb outdoor BBQ. We were also very impressed with the garden, which is large, well maintained, quiet and secluded. The owners have gone to great lengths to make it more like home from home. We enjoyed a lot to be in the house, on the terraces in the garden or in the pool! The view up to the ocean is gorgeous!T A wonderfull, modern house with all commodities in a quiet neighbourhood, very well maintained and cared for. The owner provided first class customer service, answering all my questions, returning phone calls promptly. The housekeeper was very nice and helpfull. The garderner and the maid are excellent and keep everything very good maintained. The driving distance to town centre is about 5 min. and the beach in aprox. 20 min. Faro is a wonderful town with fab shopping, wonderful seafood restaurants and bars. Close to the villa inn 5 min driving distance are 2 mercados for your provisions. If you're looking for a stunning Villa in a quiet location then this is it. If you are thinking of booking - don't hesitate you will not be disappointed. We can highly recommend this villa throughout the entire year. We had a great holliday (we were 6 persons) and we will definitely be re-booking and we have no hesitation in recommending this villa to potential guests! We’ll come again as we had such a fantastic experience.
