Mike and Sue have thought of everything, I don't think we have ever stayed in a better equipped villa. The villa was clean, comfortable and homely with a lovely welcome pack waiting for us that was very much appreciated. The pool area has loungers, comfy sofas and a table and chairs for al fresco dining, there is also another dining area by the BBQ with a huge unberella that we ate lunch at. There are fruit trees by the pool and we picked a lemon or two for our drinks. The villa is well placed for a number of local villages including, Sao Bras, Estoi and Loule, and there are a number of good restaurants within a 15 minute drive. I really can't say enough good things about this villa. Thanks Mike and Sue for letting us stay in your wonderful holiday home.

The owners, Ian and Mags could not be more than helpful, very friendly and knowledgeable of the area and genuinely nice people!

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
