                                                              Amazing villa Monte das Pedras

                                                              5 of 5
                                                              The villa is very well equipped and there is a really nice pool area as well as a large breakfast/dining terrace. In Loulé and Sao Bras (ca. 5-6 km) you can find both the supermarkets as well as good reastaurants. In the surrounding of the villa we could listen and recognize plenty of summer birds and the swallows were showing their flying skills in nice sun shine in April 2016. Thank you Angela for all, we are pleased to recommend this villa to our friends! Birdwatchers

                                                              From the moment we enquired about hiring this beautiful home, we were well and truly taken care of. The owners, Lisa and Charles were extremely helpful, as well as the local staff who oversee the home. We were met by Lorraine, who looks after the property with her husband, Luis, and they could not have been more helpful. We were welcomed by the gorgeous smell of the burning open log fire. We preordered a welcome hamper, and as it was New Year's Day, Lorraine even provided extras such as wine and groceries so we could cook that evening, which we paid her for. The villa is extremely spacious. There is a large utility which has a washer and a fridge in. This leads to the excellently equipped kitchen....honestly, there is nothing you won't find in there! We actually ate in every evening as it was so well equipped. After dinner, load the dishwasher and relax. The kitchen leads through to the dining area which has a bookcase and board games aswell as a beautiful sideboard and a beautiful rocking chair in an open space leading out to the terrace. Off the dining area is a double bedroom with a bathroom opposite. Stairs lead upto the wonderful master bedroom. This is an extremely large room and has an ultra modern glass walk in shower. A highlight of the room is a large terrace which overlooks the beautiful unspoilt countryside and the ocean in the distance. Back downstairs, a few steps lead down to the lounge which is so homely and cosy. There are two sofas and a chair, with a large table. The main feature of the room is the open log fire. The fire and surround is truly stunning. We designated one of our party to collect the logs from the log store at the back of the villa and clean the fire out each morning. There is also a CD player and a TV and DVD machine....not only that, but a large selection of CDs and DVDs to accompany these. We took some DVDs with us and it was so cosy after dinner to relax in the lounge with the log fire burning away. There is an amazing light feature which hangs from the high ceiling. Off the lounge is a spacious twin room with an ensuite bathroom with bath and shower. This room has a window overlooking the pool and has a beautiful chair which was lovely to sit and read in. All of the bathrooms have heated towel rails too! Outside is just as stunning, a beautiful med style garden with cacti, various terraces to sit on and a beautiful pool...even in January we dipped our feet in! The views from the villa are breathtaking too.

                                                              A Home from Home (albeit with a lot more sunshine)

                                                              5 of 5
                                                              Casa D'Arroba was truly magnificent. The villa is quite secluded, on a peaceful hillside with nice views, but not too far from the towns of Sao Bras and Loule where there are some delightful places to eat, and food markets to visit. The villa itself has excellent, very clean facilities, and is very well equipped with everything a family needs. The kitchen facilities are particularly good and the new barbecue is so great we cooked on it 7 times during our 10 day stay! Lovely grounds with a fantastic pool with inflatables for the kids, and a spacious poolside area which had plenty of sun loungers (which has always been a problem at other places). We really didn't want to leave, and will definitely coming back as soon as we can.
