The farmhouse is easily big enough for two adults and two (older) teens and could easily accommodate six. The outside space is fantastic, with a covered area for eating, loungers by the pool and seats under a tree. Plenty of room so no one feels like they are getting in each other's way. A beautiful 40 minute drive from Faro, and 30 minutes to Tavira (definitely recommended!) The only thing worth pointing out is that the track down to the house is quite narrow and has a hill to one side, so nervous passengers may want to get out and walk the last 50 yards of the journey. Certainly not a reason not to go though! Hope to return next year, and we've never returned to any cottage or villa we've rented before!

We have to say we loved this villa. Tarmacadam road leading to it (other villas have always been rough dusty farm tracks), a place to park ones car in the shade so it is cooler when entering it on a hot day, space and quietness. We found that we preferred the second bedroom to the master bedroom because of the colour scheme and chose that room for our week, but all three bedrooms were of a high quality with good beds ( on some villas we have stayed in the beds were simply wooden frames with a chip board base or indeed falling apart) we slept well here. It was great to have the facility of air conditioning but we felt we didn't need it and enjoyed being able to sleep with the cool night air coming in through the windows which you can leave open because of the anti-insect mesh fitted. We found no problem with the bedding (Marks & Spencer's) and were very happy with the cleanliness throughout. We loved the balconies and the views from up there. The kitchen was extremely well stocked with every utensil you could possibly need and the cooker even came with a griddle. I agree that the TV was a little small but we don't go out to Portugal to watch TV. We prefer to be outside on the balcony until midnight, sipping wine in the warm night air and listening to music. TV we can do at home. The wifi was excellent and easy to use and the living room was bright and comfortable. We went as a couple so of course there were ample sun beds, chairs, and parasols, and with the lounger cushions (stored in the downstairs bedroom cupboard) we didn't fine anything amiss with regards to the outside furniture. Yes, the parasols were a little faded but they did the job and kept us cool. The pool was excellent and we paid the extra to have it heated. Luxury! I have never seen my wife get into a pool so quick, or to stay in a pool for so long. The surrounding garden (with grass) was very beautiful and a pleasure to be amongst. We know the area well so I will say nothing about that, however, although we are going back to our regular villa in Moncarapacho in August (booked a long time ago) we have already taken steps to return here again next year with some additional family members. They will love it, as we did.

Where do I begin, the beautiful views from the poolside terrace, spacious bedrooms, very well equipped modern kitchen, great tv package and not forgetting the large pool. On arrival Tina & Barry made us very welcome with a bottle of bubbly. We have stayed in the Eastern Algarve many times now and continue to find lovely local people, great authentic restaurants which offer quality food and in our opinion this area is easily the best part of the Algarve. Tina & Barry what a lovely home you have. When we arrived we met the owners but without doubt when we left we said until next time to good friends.(See you in September). Ron≤ah
