There was was so much space and all the rooms were lovely. My wife and I bought 5 kids along. 3 were adult age. They all had their own rooms and the children didn't bicker over any of them, they were all excellent! The games room was a God send as it rained one day but also because it kept the children together and they were all enjoying each others company in the evening- instead of being on their devices. The pool was amazing! The house was clean. All the amenities were there for us. There is nothing more irritating that arriving at a villa and having to buy washing up liquid, tablets for the dishwasher and washing machine and toilet rolls. We were delighted that all these things were in place. There were condiments in the cupboards including tea and coffee which lasted the whole week and a bottle of wine in the fridge! All very nice touches. Thank you Joan! There were loads of areas to sit and cook and eat outdoors which we did often. The pool had a bar, a fridge, a loo, pool toys, loungers, chairs, outdoor sofas, lighting outside to name but a few. (There were fig trees and we ate them fresh off the tree every day!) The location was quite but only a 15 minute ride from Tomar where there were markets, restaurants, banks, supermarkets, takeaways and the like. We are both runners and there was plenty of (uphill) routes around the villa with hardly any cars around. I got 3 PB's! although that was down to me - not Joan :) If you want noise and chaos don't come here, but if you want to chill and have a real break, this is definitely the place. I thought that we might be paying over the odds but it was real value for money for the amount of people in our party. In fact, it was a bargain! I wish I could find something to say negative so that this review doesn't seem like I was paid to say this. I wasn't! We really loved it! :) (Maybe look me up on Tripadvisor - I'm not always nice about where I've stayed! Haha!) In short, nice to get what you think you going to get and then it being better than expected. We will be back next year God willing. Thanks again Joan. You've really cracked the case! Xx
