We wanted somewhere that would be quiet and this certainly met our requirements. We also wanted to have good restaurants within walking distance and even the the accommodation is isolated, within 400m from the house there are three restaurants (albeit we only tried 2 of them and can recommend both but preferred Chez Malice). The use of the pool is a real bonus. The only down side was that the bed was a little firm for our liking - but this is very much personal preference.

Full Sky package on large screen TV much appreciated by this sports fan. Villa is short drive from station and trips to Lagos & Faro were highlights of our stay. Private pool well maintained and in the hot weather we enjoyed was hard to resist - also BBQ was much used!
