“Hills, starry night sky, fantastic beaches”

We would agree with everything written by previous reviewers. The position of the villa is very rural but shares the valley with other houses so you don't feel completely isolated, some Portuguese, some English. Great to watch locals going about their business tending their fields etc. Tavira, the nearest large town, is a beautiful old town to spend time in, busy but not yet spoilt by tourism. If you can tear yourself away from the wonderful beaches would recommend going to Spain, dead easy down the new motorway. Less than 2 hours to Seville.

“Lovely house :)”

Arrival to the villa was made easy as we were greeted at the airport and escorted to the villa. Approx 30 mins drive from Faro airport.

Gift basket was left for us with homemade olive oil and honey and some provisions to get us through (we arrived late at night).

There are lots of tomatoes and various other fruit and vegetables being grown at the villa, having these at hand was a real plus. The kids loved setting off with baskets to pick their own fruit! The kitchen in the house was very well equipped with juicers, blender etc - perfect for making use of the fruit!

Things to bear in mind - this house is fantastic but there is no air conditioning. Fans were in place which were great and very much needed at night. In high temperatures fans may not be enough for some people.

“The perfect holiday retreat, a small piece of heaven!”
Reviewed 4 September 2013 for a stay in July 2013

My partner and I were delighted with the property. We stayed there for a week and it was amazing! Highly recommended to people who are looking for peace and quiet, natural environment and relaxation.
The owners of the house were amazing. They picked us up at the airport in Faro and showed us the way to the property. The house was in perfect condition: the kitchen had everything you can wish for, the pool was the perfect size and was cleaned by the owner during our stay.
We also had access to the garden and were generously asked to pick up as many fruit and vegetables as we wanted!
We really enjoyed eating bbqs on the terrace and watching the shooting stars at night. It was fabulous!
The property is located 15 minutes away from Tavira (drive) where the big supermarket is, so it was really convenient.
Thank you very much Magda and Nelson! We hope to come back soon to your little haven :)

We stayed here for 16 wonderful days. The villa is the best equipped I have ever stayed in and so clean. The owners were super supplying fresh fruit every time they visited. I will be back again. If you want a totally relaxing holiday and see the wonderful beaches of the eastern Algarve this is the villa to stay in.
