A ‘PERFICK’ PROPERTY - Revisted
Our holiday in 2013 was so good we had no reservations about returning to the same Villa in the same complex on the outskirts of a sleepy village in the Western Algarve. There have been some changes to the Villa since last year which includes, some new double glazing, speedy broadband and a very good quality flat screen television along with a device to ensure that you get all of your favourite TV channels. If the weather is unsettled and the beach or sightseeing is an unlikely prospect you will find that the villa has a good selection of books, dvds and games to keep people of all ages entertained.
The booking process was effortless and the owners are always available to provide information. Once again there was a survival kit waiting for us, bread, butter, milk and a grand selection of teas and coffee, all very welcome as it allows you to relax and think about what shopping you need to purchase rather than rush out and do a trolley dash. Eating out is always nice here, there are a couple of restaurants in the village and close by is Salema where there are numerous restaurants to choose from. It is not too far to walk to Salema and is advisable if you intend to have some of the excellent local wines. On the return journey climb the hill out of the village at a leisurely pace it’s not as tough as it looks and if you are visiting in the evening a torch would be a sensible precaution. If you are dining at home the Villa has well equipped kitchen or a BBQ to prepare your meal on, with local shops and supermarkets close to hand you won’t go hungry. Dining at home on the roof terrace watching the sunset over the hills is an absolute must.
Our thanks again to the owners for allowing us to share their home and thanks also to their site manager who promptly answered our call regarding the safe. I have to say, this holiday location is habit forming.
Thank you Derek for your positive comments.We are delighted when guests return and love our house and the area as much as we do. Keep up the good habit!
A ‘perfick’ property
Our Villa was situated in a small complex on the outskirts of a sleepy village on the Western Algarve. The complex of around 30 properties encircle a private swimming pool which is solely for the of Villa owners and their guests the gardens and properties are immaculate and well maintained.
The Villa, which was exactly as described on the Web Site, was the ideal location to celebrate our 40th Wedding Anniversary, however, a word of warning, this Complex and Villa was so comfortable you had to coax yourself to get up and venture out to see the surrounding countryside. If you don’t you will miss places like Monchique, the town and the Spa, then there is Sagres, Silves , Lagos. Didn’t find a bad beach at all they are all good in their own way and if you don’t mind a bit of drive go to Odeceixence the village is quaint and the beach is excellent.
The owners thoughtfully provide a survival kit comprising of Tea, Coffee, Bread, Butter & Milk to get you through the first night. If you contact the owners prior to departure they will also arrange for additional items to be left, a very useful service if you know that your inbound flight is scheduled to arrive late in the evening.
The village has several restaurants which are less than 5 minutes away from the Villa alternatively you can drive down to Salema for a wider choice. Whatever you do don’t overlook the facilities at the Villa, the elevated terrace for Al Fresco dining (what a view) the well equipped kitchen and BBQ The are a couple of village shops selling groceries etc and you are a short car journey away from Budens where there is a supermarket.
Our thanks to the owners for sharing their home with us and we very much hope to return
Derek, Thanks so much for your enthusiastic and kind words. We love it when our guests make the most of the area and discover this beautiful unspoilt place. But you're right : sitting on the terrace and soaking up the view is a bit special with a glass of the very good (and cheap!) local wine. We hope you will come back and try some more!
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! BEAUTIFUL VILLA AND VILLAGE!
Lovely home, exactly as described in the advert! It really is a home away from home. Everything you could possibly need is provided – cooking utensils, washing machine/dryer, area travel guides, reading books, dvds, board games!! Not to mention the welcome hamper you are kindly provided with.
The pool area is very relaxing and blissfully quiet and the villa terrace looks over wonderful view of the hilly landscape, which provides a beautiful sunset, as well as sunshine all day! The beack which is a short walk away is beautiful and fairly quiet.
The village itself is small, quaint and locals are very welcoming. The local restaurants are excellent value as is the wine. However, it is very small so a car is highly recommended so you can travel to nearby villages if you would rather not walk in the heat.
Salema is worth a visit, busier than Figueria but more choice of restaurants, shops and bars. More beaches too, although busier.
Lagos is a short drive – 20mins – and there is so much to do there in terms of trips, shops, markets that it would keep you busy for hours/days! Worth visiting but definitely a lot busier and faster paced. It was lovely to visit but even better to know we could return to Figueria for some peace!
Highly recommended for a blissful, relaxing holiday. Very clean and tidy with supermarkets, beaches and villages all nearby – what more could you need!
Thanks for the review Christa. What you have said encapsulates what we feel about the area and what we try to provide, so it is very good to read your reaction and feedback.
We certainly agree that a car is advisable as without independent transport it is harder to find the wonderful selection of beaches nearby , let alone the restaurants!
Agréable séjour à Figuiera
Excellent séjour dans une maison très agréable, bien équipée et très au calme.
La région est magnifique.
Nous avons fait de superbes plongées depuis la plage d'Ingrina et également avec le club Divers Cape de Sagres. Très beaux spots de plongées (spécialement pour plongeurs de l'atlantique ou de la manche - car l'eau est quand même fraîche - 14°C au fond au mois d'Aout.)
La réservation et la gestion de la location se sont très bien déroulés par échange de mail et virement bancaire. La caution nous a également été retournée rapidement par virement.
Thank you. As we are not divers, it is good to hear what a good diving destination it is. We loved receiving the photos of the aquatic life you saw!
We do try to respond to all e-mails promptly and efficiently.
Wunderschönes Haus in herrlicher Umgebung
Wir verbrachten zwei erholsame Wochen in Figueira. Die Ruhe, die herrliche Außenanlage, der schöne Pool und der weite Blick von der Terrasse über die Landschaft und das Dorf Figueira haben uns besonders gefallen. Auch die Ausstattung und Aufteilung des Hauses hat uns sehr zugesagt. In der näheren Umgebung gibt es mehrere schöne Strande, die sich mit dem Auto schnell erreichen lassen. Das Haus liegt am Dorfrand, so dass fußläufig ein kleiner Laden, 3 Bars und ein Restaurant zu erreichen sind. Die Vermieter sind sehr hilfsbereit, stellten uns ein Kinderbett zur Verfügung und ermöglichten uns am Abreisetag bis 14.00 Uhr im Haus zu bleiben. Wir können dieses Haus uneingeschränkt empfehlen.
Sorry my German is not up to giving you a reply in German. But thank you very much for your comments; we are glad that you enjoyed the house and surroundings as much as we do and had an enjoyable and memorable holiday .
Hopefully, you might return!
Figueira. Our complex is on the edge of this small ancient village of narrow cobbled streets and brightly coloured houses. There is a small shop where basic groceries can be bought and a restaurant where you can eat well and inexpensively within 5 minutes' walk.
A footpath down a green valley leads to Figueira Beach a mile away, where the only building is a ruined fort on the cliff top. Inaccessible by car, it is never crowded. 2 miles away by road is the fishing village of Salema with its beach, excellent restaurants and a bigger supermarket. Nearby the village of Budens has another supermarket. Vila do Bispo(5k.) has many restaurants , Lidl, a monthly market and good basic shops
Lagos is 10 miles to the East where there is the old slave market, marina, harbour, fish market, and a great range of shops and restaurants. Local crafts include pottery and lace and provide interesting shopping.
Cape St. Vincent, with Henry the Navigator's famous compass is 8 miles to the west
Additional pricing information
The price is all inclusive. The house is prepared for your arrival with a small welcome pack. We do ask that it is left in a reasonable condition and that visitors respect that it is our home for several months .
