Beaches /villages

Picture postcard beaches can be found throughout the Algarve, around the picturesque region of Albufeira and Vilamoura there are many beaches within the vicinity; Olhos de Agua is a must. The colourfull Praia da Oura Beach, Albufeira's old town Fisherman's Beach, Sao Rafael Beach, Coelho Beach and more... all small pretty beaches. Inland Algarve is well worth exploring including the local villages like this one Paderne and take a trip to Silves where the castle is well worth a look and the pretty mountain village of Alte just 10/15 minutes drive in land of us -very quaint, the mountains of Monchique which you can see in the distance from our villa, take time also to visit the oldest town on the Algarve, known as The Venice of the Algarve - Tavira! You’ll find great seafood. Also, take time, and visit the pretty, neighbouring town of Cabanas for lunch or dinner at one of the many restaurants near the Ria Formosa. Everywhere you go you will find a warm welcome

Loved everything! Highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I came here on vacation from Washington, DC and loved every minute of our stay. The villa is simply beautiful; with picturesque views of true Portuguese countryside you’ll feel as though you’re a million miles away and completely relaxed. The house is spotless, with a beautiful kitchen, open plan living and dining area, and 4 beautiful bedrooms – 2 with en suite. Personally, we loved the roof-top terrace for sitting out and watching the sunset and the balcony right off our bedroom for eating breakfast in the morning. The pool is a lovely size and perfect for cooling off after a day on the sun loungers. The outdoor kitchen/dining area is also fabulous for al fresco eating. Located not too far from the beach and with plenty of authentic Portuguese restaurants nearby I highly recommended this luxurious getaway!

Best Regards,

Danielle and Richard from Washington DC, USA

Crofts & Fletcher stay

  • 5 of 5

This truly is a stunning villa the internet does not do this villa justice it is very clean and in immaculate condition. We cannot fault anything with regards to our holiday at this villa the owner is very nice and very helpful the local area is quiet and very relaxing but does have very good local restaurants and bars and local shop.

This villa also has a superb pool and bbq dining area which we spent a lot of time in as it is a stunning area to be in.

Villa is in my opinion a good base to be at to travel around the Algarve not to far from the airport, main big towns and plenty of first class beaches.

We would strongly recommend this villa to anyone wishing to explore the Algarve and wish we was back there right now :-)

Home from home- fantastic villa, great owners

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful villa- the owners have thought of everything you may need- its a real design triumph! Its tucked away in a quiet village which has lots of lovely restaurants (some with playgrounds for the kids) which are good value. The pool was great- shallow at one end and slightly deeper at the other- perfect for kids and the BBQ was easy to use and a great eating area. Its lovely and quiet away from the bustle of the coast but not too far away to make it a hassle to go to the beach. The owners couldn't have been more helpful and gave us lots of advice on where to go to the beach, where to eat and what food and wine to try. All their recommendations were spot on. Im very fussy and this was like a home from home- it was cleaned twice a week and the gardener came to sort out the pool and garden once a week. A very effective pool timer kept the pool clean and even turned off the outside lights. The security of the fencing and electric gates meant we slept easy at night. Thanks Jacqueline and Alan for a fantastic time we would recommend this to anyone.

Great House

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recomend this house to anyone it is very nicely decorated really clean, our family had a wonderfull holiday there we have two small boys who loved the pool, and settled in straight away. The garden was compact but very secure, with a 3 year old and five year old this was a Godsend. You do need a car as it is a drive to the towns but the house is very central to all attractions,and being 10/15 mins from the big towns/resorts it ment pease and quiet at night. My parents joined us for a few nights and we barbqued, the outside seating is great under shade for lunch, and lovely for evening. The owners were a pleasure to deal with and we would hope to stay again in the future.

For families with kids

  • 5 of 5

The house is fantastic and placed in a very tipical and quiet location of the algarve area. Close to everything (supermarkets, entretainment, etc.) Very clean and with a very good pool air conditioned, good kitchen and laundry area. Fantastic outdoor garden, not big but with very nice places to be at. All facilities you need in holidays where in the house allowing you to have vacations and rest. The owners are very kind and helpful and we have intention the repeat the experience with this property

A very nice holiday time!

  • 5 of 5

We, 2 families with in total 3 kids, had a very nice time in this comfortable and well equipped villa. Due to the good description and illustration of the house as well as the good communication with Jacqueline we already had a good feeling before arrival. And we have not been disappointed, because the villa met all our expectations. We enjoyed the time with fantastic weather, great use of the pool every day (especially the kids :-)) and spent much time at the BBQ place ....

The distances to interesting places and towns at the Algarve as well as the way to beautiful beaches are very modest and to be reached by a car quickly. Finally, over 14 days there was no time to get bored and the TV remained turned off. In short, we can fully recommend this villa and hope to be able to return soon.
