Le cadre est hydillique, des hectares de nature, une vue magnifique sur le paysage...le passage de superbes chèvres au loin. Une piscine à débordement qui plonge dans ce paysage de rêve...la maison posée sur un petit promontoire offre des vues et une exposition idéales. Dans l'esprit de l'architecture locale, la maison se fond dans la topographie, embrassant la colline. Les prestations de la maison sont haut de gamme, les volumes et les espaces sont généreux, la décoration raffinée et chaleureuse.. les literies sont de qualité ainsi que le linge de lit, le linge de maison. Les draps et essuis sentait bon le frais. La maison était dans un état impeccable, le ménage avait été fait avec soin. La cuisine est équipée avec du matériel haut de gamme, très agréable à vivre. De belles sélections d'épices, huiles, ... beaucoup de priduits était à disposition dès notre arrivée.. également dans les produits ménagers. Nous nous sommes sentis réellement bien accueillis. La situation de la maison est idéale pour visiter la région, proche des plages, commerces, etc.. des voisins charmants à 500m éleveurs de chèvres. Crispin qui fût notre correspondant pour la location était des plus sympatique et disponible. Nous recommandons vivement cette splendide propriété aux plus exigeants.. habitués de ce site, nous partons chaque année deux fois par an. Ces vacances furent parmi les plus belles de nos destinations. A faire! Nous recommandons ce bien les yeux fermés.

It is ideally located in a quiet area, yet only a 10 minute drive to the historical town of Tavira, with its cobbled streets and fantastic restaurants, bars and craft shops. The quaint village of Santo Estevao is only a leisurely stroll away, or you can make use of the cycles provided. The villa is set in beautifully manicured landscaped gardens, with sea views from the pool and terraced area. There are an abundance of beaches close by, and in my opinion, the best on The Algarve. I would definitely recommend this villa to friends and family.

                                                                                                      We are a family of five, 3 boys ages 5, 7 and 15 and we had a lovely holiday at Mario and Armanda's beautiful home this October. It was better than expected (and it looked pretty good in the photos!) and we received such a warm welcome from all of the family. It is often difficult to keep 3 boys of various ages happy, but they all loved the place and have already asked if they can return one day. They really enjoyed disappearing into the Orchard each day for breakfast where they happily ate the amazing fruit that Orlando said they could help themselves to. Orlando's parents were also very kind and brought us fruit and jam, they also took time out to show us around the farm, even though our Portuguese is very poor. Easy drive to Tavira and also to many other attractions nearby, but away from the hustle and bustle of the more Touristy areas. There are plenty of lovely beaches to visit and if you don't want to catch the boat or train to Ilha de Tavira just go a bit further up the coast towards Spain, where they are easier to access. We cannot recommend this place highly enough and if you want to see 'the real Portugal' and meet it's very friendly people then put it to the top of your list. Thank you Orlando, Armand and family we hope to see you all again one day.
