Casa Jean October 2017 Sao Bras De Aportel

5 of 5
Casa Jean villa is a lovely detached and spacious place to stay, everything you would need for a great and relaxing break. Lovely gardens with numerous sitting areas, and gorgeous pool. Pleasant views with a great deal of privacy. Just a short drive from Faro airport, ideally situated to explore the Algarve. Just a short drive from shops and restaurants. Would certainly return again in the future !
