About the Owner

The villa is owned jointly with my brother and is essentially a place for family holidays. He lives in Bristol has 3 children and 5 grandchildren, we live in Warwickshire and have two daughters one of whom was recently married and spent her hen week out at the villa. All children and grandchildren love the villa and visit at least once a year, being only 20 mins from Faro airport is a big plus for all. We are all keen sportsmen and play golf and tennis whilst out in Portugal.

very relaxing and enjoyable stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay on the outskirts of Estoi which is a lovely village, and our first stay at Boavista. The villa is very well equipped and to our sons delight had plenty of inflatables to use in the deep pool. The villa is spacious with great views and cold air-conditioning in all the bedrooms and lounge. Although the villa is out of the village it takes only around 10 mins to walk to the cafe/bar in the square, which serves good inexpensive food, excellent coffee and yummy pastias de nada (egg custard). The owners provided excellent communication and a wealth of info of the village showing local walks etc. We recommend a stay here and very much look forward to visiting again.

There is nothing not to like about this villa. Excellent all round. If you want to be critical the track to the property is a tad rough, but perfect for a hire car!
