Spacious, Good location
Lovely outdoor space, pool perfect for our 3 children not to deep or large. Lots of outdoor seating and a great bar area. The owners Were really helpful and lovely people.
The location is great as you are just 5 minutes from the motorway which takes you to which ever regions you wish to visit.
The only negative is that there is no air conditioning and as we stayed during August it was extremely hot at night time and we found it difficult to sleep even with Fans and windows open. It was very safe there with electronic gates no one overlooked us either.
As a family we loved this holiday, spent two weeks and enjoyed every minute. The villa has everything you need, and outside area was a fantastic space to relax and enjoy the hot weather. Graham and Bernadette were wonderful hosts and so accommodating as well as their daughter Samantha. It is a great base to explore the eastern side of the Algarve, you definitely need a car.
We were a little worried when we booked this as it looked too good to be true on the website.
However on arrival it turned out to be even better than it looks. A beautiful converted farmhouse with masses of outside space and a beautifully clean pool.
There is every thing you could possibly need equipment wise and enough towels to supply the whole village :o)
Graham & Bernadette made us very welcome and although we did not see much of them as they made sure that we had our privacy. We left feeling that we had made some new friends.
On our next visit to Portugal we will definitely be booking this property.
merci pour l'accueil . toujours aussi agréable. maison et jardin ravissant. super piscine. le seul petit hic le manque de climatisation . ( surtout la nuit ) .
merci et bonne continuation .Laurence et Tony Gomes .FRANCE.
Merci pour votre belle revue . Nous sommes désolés que votre expérience totale a été légèrement déçu par le manque d'air conditionné et les ventilateurs fournis ne vous a pas garder assez cool . La climatisation est disponible à la Casa Donna Lisa , cependant, il est disponible sur demande et moyennant un supplément ( cela est dû au coût extrêmement élevé de l'électricité , ici au Portugal ) . Nos sincères excuses pour ne pas vous informant de sa availablity quand vous êtes arrivé .
Merci encore pour votre examen de type et de commentaires utiles .
Graham & Bernadette
Thank you for your lovely review. We are sorry that your total experience was slightly let down by the lack of air-conditioning and that the fans provided did not keep you cool enough. Air conditioning is available at Casa Donna Lisa, however, it is on request and has an additional charge (this is due to the extremely high cost of electricity here in Portugal). Our sincere apologies for not informing you of its availablity when you arrived.
Thank you again for your kind review and helpful feedback.

Amazing , relaxing week away!
Well what can I say! We have just arrived home after a week away at This villa and we have loved every minute. We arrived early hours of the morning and was greeted by Graham who showed us around and Bernadette had left us a welcome pack of food and drink until we could get to the shops. The villa was also really clean and well maintained. The grounds of the villa were beautiful with so much space and gorgeous places to sit ( especially the bar and under the pergola) . The salt water pool was great and our teenage son spent most of his time in it. Inside - the villa had everything we needed, Sky channels, wifi, dishwasher, abundance of towels, fans the list goes on. We really had a week of true relaxation . We hired a car and spent a few days having a nose around the local areas and beaches but we spent nearly all our time at the villa as we loved it so much. Graham and Bernadette were great hosts and their daughter Sam helped out loads before we arrived answering our questions. If you want a week away from it all with everything you need them look no further
Lovely place, lovely owners
