Spacious family accommodation with lovely views

  • 4 of 5

My family of 5 stayed over Christmas 2016. Our first surprise was the amount of space both inside and out. The bedroom upstairs was virtually a private suite with its own sundeck. Other highlights were the curved walls, wood burning stove, table tennis table and dish washer but the view was the best. The track up is a bit rough (mind your tyres) but we had pre-dawn walks in the lanes admiring the botany. Watch out for those striped pitcher plants flowering straight out of the ground.

Superb summer holliday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our two boys (14 & 16) for, unfortunately, just one week in July 2016. The villa is spacious and equipped with everything you'll need. The pool is just fabulous. It was cleaned twice during our visit and the water was both sparkling and warm. After spending an 'exhausting' hour or so on one of the several sun terraces, drinking cold beer or good value Portugese wine, we really needed a dip in the pool to cool off!

The access road is a somewhat 'unmade' but it didn't trouble our little hire car - just need to take it easy and avoid the big rocks & dips.

We did walk into Santa Barbara de Nexe on one of the evenings. It's probably only about a mile or so but there aren't any pavements, Portugese drivers clearly don't form a big proportion of the Institute of Advanced Motorists (!) and although it's downhill most of the way, that does mean it's uphill most of the way back....and it was around 28 degrees....on a full stomach. We drove the next time :)

David is probably the most helpful, reliable and communicative owner you could ever hope to deal with. He answered any queries promptly and reliably. The whole experience was thoroughly enjoyable and we have no hesitation in recommending this villa to anyone looking for a peaceful, relaxing break. If you want busy night-life, probably best look elsewhere!

The photo's here really don't do it justice - they look good but in reality it is even better. Much better.

Peace perfect peace!

An absolutely fantastic villa. Our third visit. Villa is outstanding and is positioned perfectly, not to far from Faro, with spectacular views. The private heated pool is outstanding with beautiful surroundings. We chose to do an extremely large shopping in Loule which is a 10-15 minute drive from the villa. We chose to remain at the villa for the entire week just chilling out, reading, swimming, eating and drinking in absolute luxury! Will definitely return next year. The villa is extremely spacious and designed to allow privacy to visitors, if required, with all ensuite bathrooms and separate sunbathing terraces. The owners are also extremely helpful and are quick to reply to any queries you may have.

Well maintained property with ideal internal layout for two adults and two older children. Pool and gardens well presented with plenty of options for sunbathing or shade. Handy local supermarket in village together with bakery and restaurants. Plenty of other options nearby with use of a car. David the owner was very helpful with any queries we had. Would recommend this location for a relaxing family holiday!

Brilliant getaway for relaxation

  • 5 of 5

Booked at the last minute David was so helpful. When we arrived the villa was spotless, the pictures on the web looked good but in reality it was fantastic.. It's very big for four.!

The pool is fantastic and very clean. The air con is needed in July and the WiFi kept the teenager happy.

The villa has everything you need except ...! Large mugs for northern people, who like big "brews" in the am !!

The beach near Faro airport is lovely and has free parking.

The village has a lovely Italian restaurant which also does takeaways.

This villa was lovely and I would definitely stay here again.

Review from two adults two kids age sixteen and eight.
