Great stay in this villa - perfect location. Villa had everything you need and the pool was lovely.
Stunning views with a Serene feel
Wow! What a villa.
Away from the hustle of the city, waking up to a view of the hills and the sounds of nature was a total peaceful experience for the family.
The villa had all the amenities including a music system that was a great touch to the holiday.
The pool had sunshine right up till 8 in the evening which meant that the kids were thoroughly occupied.
Can’t wait to rebook the villa next summer.
Amazing villa, had everything we needed and more. Loved the location and how quiet it was
The pool was just what was needed in the hot weather and the bbq was lovely on the warm evenings. Location was superb and quiet but close enough we could get a taxi to the city
Comfortable, well-maintained, nice location
Stayed here as a family, two adults and two girls in early/mid teens. Lovely, quiet location, though less than ten minutes' easy drive to Silves where there are supermarkets, markets, restaurants and shops. The villa is comfortable, the pool is great and the neighbours friendly and helpful, if you need help. Susie is also on hand, if needed. When we return to the Algarve, we will certainly see if we can stay here again.
Good location and well equipped villa
Great villa with excellent facilities. Susie was really helpful and we had a great holiday
Great place to relax ...
Yet another visit and we'll be back next year.
Perfect location, away from all the activity at the coastal towns, but not too far away if that's what you're looking for.
We just need tranquillity, a well appointed villa, effective air con, good wifi and mobile signal, a great pool and a supermarket only a short drive away.
If this is your perfect holiday, then this is the place !!
Silves, under 15 mins by car, can provide bars and restaurants ... and good smart taxis to get you home !!
