June 2017

This was our first experience of a Villa type holiday. We weren't disappointed.

Loved "Figgy" right from the off, it had that "wow" factor as soon as we were shown in by the lovely manager Remco, we knew we were going to have a lovely holiday. The whole place gives you a feel of what a villa should be like, cool decor, locally sourced tiles on the walls, tiled floors, a big doorway to beautifully tended gardens and outside eating areas in the sun, or shade if preferred, a nice mixture of old and modern furniture too. Everything and every room had plenty of character which gave a lovely homely feel. All the mod-cons you could ever need were also available, the dishwasher was very well utilised! The beds were very good too. The gardens are lovely, lively and we had regular visitors from the insect and reptile world! One of the highlights was the little gecko that visited us nearly every night after dark when we were indoors watching the telly! The pool area is just perfect for total peace and quiet, and also provides yet another area for outside dining and the pool was perfect too, quite big, deep, spotlessly clean and there's a choice of sun loungers and shade options. There was loads of space for our family of 4 adults (kids are 21 and 18), and the villa can easily accomodate 6. Set beside a quiet road, in very quiet surroundings, it's only a 4 or 5 minute drive from the centre of the village, and its easy to find using the simple map and directions that Sheila provided for me before departure.

We loved this place, and I would highly recommend it to anyone. As I write this, I can't think of anywhere I'd rather be than sitting outside Figgy just as the sun is setting, listening to the birds and the crickets singing while sipping another glass of local wine......

Thank you Sheila, Remco, the Pool Guy and the Maid, we had a fantastic time!

Owner's Response: Hi Neil I have just read your review and am quite thrilled by it. Obviously I love my villa which started as a little old barn , now the kitchen and bedroom on the lane. Over time my husband and I had it converted and extended to the interior you now describe. The outside space ,once the pool was constructed was fairly easy because things grow like magic in the clement climate out there. I do recognise the value of "the team " headed by Remco and his lovely wife both originally from Holland , the Portuguese maid Sao, and the gardener Dmitrii who was an immigrant from Eastern Europe a few years back.. An absolute mix from the EU! I pay them properly, treat them as equals and I get their goodwill back in spades. We want our clients -guests to have a lovely holiday, it makes us very happy and we hope you tell others about your experience and perhaps return to Figgy in the future.

Résidence merveilleusement accueillante

Une maison où l'on se sent comme chez soi. Tout est parfait : l'accueil, la déco, les équipements, le jardin, la piscine... Un seul regret : n'y être restée qu'une semaine.

A truly lovely villa and relaxing place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic two week stay at Casa das Figueiras. The villa is lovely, very spacious, with large and airy bedrooms. What we enjoyed most about the villa was the outside space, including a beautiful garden, several different seating areas to relax in the sun or shade and a fantastic pool. The villa neighbours with a few properties but was a quiet and peaceful place, truly relaxing. The villa had everything we could possibly require and the villa manger was really friendly and helpful. We hope to return one day very soon.

Owner's Response: I am always grateful for clients writing a review because I can see where there were things that they really liked and also if there is something that can be improved upon.Obviously this review has delighted me. It helps to give future clients a feel of the ambience, and the opportunity to make an objective decision as to whether this would be the right place for them.

"Our second visit and the villa surpassed even the previous year. It's truly relaxing and set in a quiet area surrounded by almond orchards with a view to the sea. Plenty of good places to eat nearby,and a good base for walking holidays but only 20 minutes from the coast. Can't fault it."
