Fabuleux.

  • 5 of 5

Bonjour, Nous avons passé deux semaines dans cette villa, du 19/08/17 au 01/09/17 et tout était parfait.

On se serait cru chez nous, tellement il y avait tout a disposition.

La piscine est super et la barbecue juste magnifique.

Pour les amoureux de la nature et de la tranquillité, c'est l'endroit idéale.

Vous êtes en pleine campagne et en meme temps à 5mn en voiture de tous les magasins et commodité.

Notre voisi, le propriétaire de la villa "Al-Haruba"a été d'une gentillesse incroyable, il nous amenait des fruits et des légumes de son jardin, le seul regret que j'ai, et que je n'ai pas eu le temps de le remercier comme il le doit, mais j'espère que ce n'est que partie remise.

La propriété est bien plis belle que sur les photos.

Vous pouvez y aller les yeux fermés.

A beautiful villa in a stunning hillside location

  • 5 of 5

We spent a lovely week, relaxing in the sun.

The villa was very well equipped with everything you could possibly want.

A good base for visiting the surrounding areas of St. Bras de Alportel, Loule and Tavira.

Would definitely recommend.

A delightful stay and celebration

  • 5 of 5

We arrived later than planned due to flight delays but the instructions on how to find thew villa were superb. Just a small consideration would be to have some form of lighting on or near the key safe for late arrivals. Once inside we found everything we could possibly need. The villa is extremely well equipped and immaculately clean.

We so enjoyed waking in the morning to the lovely views across the valley and of course blue skies. The night sky is also stunning and the owner has a night sky chart to help you Identify the various stars and constellations.

The villa has a number of very helpful guides of the area including the wonderful Algarve walks.

We spent our days walking and exploring the villages and countryside. We visited some of the beautiful beaches. Maybe more if and when we visit again. We mostly had our morning coffee in towns such as Loulle and Tavira and came back to the fabulous pool for a swim.

Casa de Pedras just lends itself to totally unwinding and relaxing and we did just that! There are plenty of very good restaurants but eating in is easy too with good supermarkets close by. All in all a great week ending with a celebratory lunch at Quinta do Lago for our 50th wedding anniversary.

Having no wifi was good in many ways but may be slightly disconcerting if you did need medical assistance. A mobile phone is I think essential to be able to make contact with the manager. Linda has lived in the area for 30+ years so she is very helpful and we really appreciated the welcome pack. A cuppa on arrival always a good start!

Again thank you for the memories Rudy and Marika.

Enjoyed a splendid break

  • 5 of 5

I am delighted to recommend this holiday home. It's not huge but it is delightful, and very tranquil, very comprehensively equipped, easily reached, and just a five minute drive into Sao Bras. I stayed in late January and early February, which was a great break from an English winter. I look forward to returning.

A wonderful holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful villa that was fully equipped for all our needs. The villa was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Set in the countryside, it was so peaceful and relaxing. Our teenage children were more than happy to spend time in the gorgeous pool and gardens - there is even a choice of terraces, 3 sets of garden tables and chairs, great sun loungers and the bbq was an added bonus. A hire car is a must as there are lots of great places to visit. A supermarket and town are nearby with great restaurants - the food here is superb. If you want a quiet, authentic place to stay within 20 - 30mins of all the various tourist attractions, this is the place to go. We certainly hope to return.
