                  Beautiful Villa....

                  4 of 5
                  What a beautiful Villa, The pictures don't really do it justice, Owners extremely helpful prior to visit and contact in Portugal extremely helpful during stay. 2 adults and 3 children stayed on this visit and we enjoyed our stay very much, car hire is absolutely ESSENTIAL, there are no shops or restaurant's near by, taxis are not available immediately and we found we had to book the taxi the day before for a specific time if we needed 1. Overall a beautiful villa, in a beautiful location, all amenities in the villa you could need, extremely clean. We would recommend this villa only if you are prepared to travel to shops restaurants and for days out.

                  What a great place !

                  5 of 5
                  We visited Quinta Bavaria over 12 years ago and decided to go back for a week in Aug 2014. We flew into Faro Airport and picked up a hire car through Goldcar (wish I hadn't and should have booked early through Sue's recommendations). Located in a quiet but easily accessible area the villa complex is idea for families - we were 2 adults and 2 teenagers. Cacto Villa was very well equipped, spotlessly clean and had everything we needed. The pool is great aswell as the grounds. Lagos is nearby with supermarkets and restaurants. During our stay we explored the Western Algarve, did a dolphin watching boat trip and a kayaking trip. They were with a local company arranged through Colin and Sue and well worth it. We ate out most nights in and around Lagos and the prices were very reasonable. Overall, our week in Portugal was fantastic - endless blue skies, great hosts and very easy to navigate around. Thank you Colin, Sue and Ben !!
