Beautiful Hacienda with fabulous pool!
We had a fantastic stay in this lovely property, the kids were in the pool all day. It’s incredibly quiet and private yet within walking distance of Santa Barbara da Nexe and it’s great restaurants.
The air conditioning in the bedrooms was greatly appreciated. The view out across Faro and the coast are breathtaking, equally at night when the distant towns are lit. Owners very friendly and accommodating.
Very well maintained property will return
The villa is very well kept and beautifully furnished with the most amazing pool and lovely gardens. It is situated quite high up and the final approach road is quite narrow but the views over Faro and the coast are stunning. Parking is easy and it is all very quiet. We were there in February in the worst weather the Algarve has seen in years, so were very grateful for the lovely wood stoves and large supply of logs. In good weather it must be lovely. David was very helpful before we left and the management company soon sorted out a problem with the TV. The alarm system can be a bit tricky. We found that you needed to press the keys firmly.
A wonderful villa for a relaxing holiday
Our family of 5 stayed in this wonderful villa for 10 days. The house is great and well maintained, the pool was heated and warm and overall it was a fantastic holiday.
The villa is in an outstanding location - it feels very remote and private however it is just a short distance to the local village where you will find a couple of supermarkets, local bars and good restaurants. La Piazza is definitely worth a visit as is Restaurant A Canga and Alagaos. Julie's bar is a great spot for a G&T!
We did have a couple of small issues and the maintenance team could not have been more responsive - even on a Sunday.
If you are on the hunt for a thoroughly relaxing holiday in a traditional Portuguese village this villa should be on your short-list.
Thanks Naomi,We are pleased you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to welcoming you back one day.Kind regards David & Josephine
Spacious family accommodation with lovely views
My family of 5 stayed over Christmas 2016. Our first surprise was the amount of space both inside and out. The bedroom upstairs was virtually a private suite with its own sundeck. Other highlights were the curved walls, wood burning stove, table tennis table and dish washer but the view was the best. The track up is a bit rough (mind your tyres) but we had pre-dawn walks in the lanes admiring the botany. Watch out for those striped pitcher plants flowering straight out of the ground.
We are pleased Jenny and her family enjoyed our villa.
We have had the roadway surface renewed so it is a pretty smooth now.(It has actually never been a problem for guests in the past)
Best wishes David & Josephine
Superb summer holliday
We stayed here with our two boys (14 & 16) for, unfortunately, just one week in July 2016. The villa is spacious and equipped with everything you'll need. The pool is just fabulous. It was cleaned twice during our visit and the water was both sparkling and warm. After spending an 'exhausting' hour or so on one of the several sun terraces, drinking cold beer or good value Portugese wine, we really needed a dip in the pool to cool off!
The access road is a somewhat 'unmade' but it didn't trouble our little hire car - just need to take it easy and avoid the big rocks & dips.
We did walk into Santa Barbara de Nexe on one of the evenings. It's probably only about a mile or so but there aren't any pavements, Portugese drivers clearly don't form a big proportion of the Institute of Advanced Motorists (!) and although it's downhill most of the way, that does mean it's uphill most of the way back....and it was around 28 degrees....on a full stomach. We drove the next time :)
David is probably the most helpful, reliable and communicative owner you could ever hope to deal with. He answered any queries promptly and reliably. The whole experience was thoroughly enjoyable and we have no hesitation in recommending this villa to anyone looking for a peaceful, relaxing break. If you want busy night-life, probably best look elsewhere!
The photo's here really don't do it justice - they look good but in reality it is even better. Much better.
We are pleased Alan and his family had a great time at our villa,we have had the roadway surface renewed since their stay so it is a smooth ride now.
Best wishes David & Josephine
