“Wonderful Villa”
Reviewed 27 September 2012 for a stay in September 2012

We stayed in this villa with our 2, sometimes not so easy to handle, twins of 20 month and it was just perfect for us. The owner is very nice and the contact was always good providing everything we needed, even 2 cots. It is a nice area to relax, very quiet all you´ll hear is a barking dog or donkey every once in a while. Even though it is in a rural area you will be in faros shopping center in 30 mins.
The villa itself is nicely furnished and very clean. All the amenities are there that one could possibly need.

“Quiet and relaxing with a lovely pool”
Reviewed 30 August 2012 for a stay in August 2012

We stayed here with our 2 children (11 and 8) and had a great holiday. The kids loved the pool and the grounds, especially the hammock. There was a lot of outdoor space which was great. The area was lovely, very quiet but with easy access to Estoi and to the motorway to travel round the Algarve. The satellite TV was the only disappointment as it had very few English language channels and only one British one (BBC World News) most of the other channels were in French or German. However TV was not the main purpose of our holiday so not a real problem!

“A Wonderful Villa!!”
Reviewed 11 May 2012 for a stay in September 2011

Nestled in the valley of Serro de Sao Miguel, is this cozy, quaint, newly updated very clean villa. Well equipped with plenty of towels, clean sheets, and everything that you might need in a kitchen. Outdoor patio with a great built in BBQ and plenty of private open space for relaxation. Awesome pool with an outdoor shower! The Villa is safely gated and child proof near the pool. The roof deck is amazing at night for stargazing.
MUST take a drive up to the top of Serro de Sao Miguel for a spectacular view of the Atlantic ocean embracing the Mediterranean Sea.
A 5 minute drive towards Moncarapacho where you can get the highway to the beaches!
It was an overall EXCELLENT and PLEASANT :) I HIGHLY recommend the Casa dos Avos when visiting Algarve.
