Beautiful home in rural Algarve

  • 5 of 5

We are two families of 8 who had a delightful stay at Quinta da Forteleza in August. The house is really lovely and the accommodation perfect for our large party as all rooms have large ensuites. Thank you Ian for the House Book which was a mine of useful information. Our party enjoyed dinner at the local beach restaurant (make sure you book in advance as Very Popular and the night sea breeze can make it too chilly to sit outside). Avoid Intermarche at Budens if you don't want to spend your holiday in queues. We thoroughly enjoyed water sports at Luz, which were very good value for money. Unfortunately we were not perfect guests and managed to lock ourselves out of the property, but Ian came straight to the rescue and new locks had been fitted by the time we returned from our day out. Thanks Ian for a great stay!

Fabulous spacious villa with helpful, attentive property manager.

  • 5 of 5

A lovely spacious villa, perfect for two families. The pool area was clean and inviting with plenty of shaded areas. The table tennis was an added bonus and the gardens were very attractive. The balcony on the middle floor was large enough for everyone to eat together and the kitchen was well equipped.

The air con was reliable and effective

Ian was a perfect host. He replied to all queries promptly and endeavoured to have the villa ready earlier as we came in on early morning flights. He visited to check that everything was ok once we had settled in and even assisted with the car tolls. I would recommend him 100%.

The only things that would improve this villa are : more comfortable mattresses, a higher extractor hood over the hob (lost count of how many times we banged our heads !), a free maid service if staying for more than a week and a couple of decking boards on the top balcony were slightly loose.

Beautiful villa in superb location

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family enjoyed a fantastic stay in this beautiful villa. With four large bedrooms with en-suite facilities, there is plenty of room to accommodate everybody. The villa is very well furnished, beautifully maintained & equipped and has lots of outside space with a lovely pool and garden. The rooftop jacuzzi with far reaching sea views is a stunning feature.The local beaches of Burgau & Salema are gorgeous and have lots of good restaurants to choose from, while the local beach and restaurant are good and within walking distance. We particularly enjoyed the excellent walks and drives in the immediate vicinity through fabulous countryside. If anything the listing particulars cannot do justice to this property, which we would recommend highly.

Fabulous spacious villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic holiday in the beautiful villa. Plenty of room to accommodate two families and loads of outdoor space. The house is very well equipped. Local beaches are gorgeous and lots of restaurants in nearby Burgau and Salema. The local beach restaurant is fantastic. We loved it & we plan on going back soon.

Excellent Base for Western Algarve

  • 5 of 5

First here in Easter 2014 and it was so good we came back again in Easter 2015. Comfortable and fantastic for 8 as you have so much space. Lagos for restaurants, Selima and Burgau for beaches and more restaurants. Villa in great nick with all that you would require.

An excellent property in a peacefull location.

  • 5 of 5

This is a very fine spacious high quality property. On arrival we found it to be very clean and is well maintained. Bedrooms all spacious with ensuite facilities so allowing us privacy as we were 2 family groups. A short walk 5 minute walk to a quite sandy beach. Good restaurants in the locality but it is necessary to travel approx. 2 miles to get to local towns (2).
