“Nice house, beautiful location”

We had a wonderfull time in Cottage Forestal. Karen, John and the lovely dog Frank were friendly.and helpful to us. We enjoyed the comfortable house, made nice trips en walked in the surrounding forrest. The weather was this winter not as good as we had wished. Despite that we had a good time. The forrest was beautiful and the little village on a 15 minute walk friendly with nice people. Next time in the winter we bring an extra sweater.

“Absolutely perfect!”

I booked a few days at the cottage as a surprise for my partner's birthday, and we had a fantastic time. Karen went above and beyond what we expected and was also really lovely to talk to. We felt like she really cared that we were comfortable and happy staying at the cottage. We had a great time walking with Frank the dog too! The cottage itself has everything you could need. It is in a ideal location, right next to some lovely woodland and only a few minutes walk from the village. Te village is a really interesting place full of art, free thinkers and happy dogs! We loved it and I really hope we can return for another visit soon.

We really enjoyed our stay at Cottage Florestal. It was our first visit to The Algarve. What a great place,with a good mix of beaches.
The house was well equipped with everything you need. If you are looking for some peace and quiet this is the place to be, the only thing you hear are the owls at night.
Karen and John were very friendly and Frank the dog too!

We had a lovely welcome from Karen and John, both were really helpful and supportive. They even brought items such as bread, wine, milk and more which was really useful. They recommended some lovely restaurants, all that were good value for money. We had no problems with the house and it was lovely and private. Thank you so much to both of you, and Frank of course! We would definitely recommend this place, it is really good value for money and you will not be disappointed.

“Lovely place, lovely hosts!”
Reviewed 24 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

The house is on a super site with good quality facilities (e.g. Wireless internet). It was spotlessly clean & Karen & John were only too pleased to ensure that we had a happy stay - they even collected oranges from their orchard and left them on our doorstep for us!
