Every room has been furnished beautifully and little touches added to make it extra special. Highly recommend to anyone wanting a get away from it all break, but with the option of having places near by to visit. Great for larger parties. Children friendly too! And for once, photos which are exactly as the villa appears. Well worth a visit - you will not be disappointed!

It is extremely spacious and very well presented and equipped with modern appliances and everything you need for a family holiday. We have three teenage children who absolutely loved it and it would equally suit those with young children or a group of adults. The view from the villa is breathtaking and can be enjoyed from the lovely terrace, the pool area and the well tended gardens - you can even collect your own fresh lemons and limes. The village itself has a local bar and a fantastic steak restaurant and further afield we enjoyed some lovely evenings in Tavira and Villamoura. There are beautiful beaches for kitesurfing and surfing enthusiasts all within a 30 min drive.
