amazing Family holiday

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we were welcomed to the villa we felt relaxed & at ease, everything was as described although the photos didn't do the villa justice as it was everything & more than shown. The quiet village of Monte Francisco seems a million miles away from the hustle & bustle of the real world & a perfect place to chill. we were a party of 12 ages ranging from 4 up to 63 & everybody had their own place for a little peace if required. A beautiful pool area was a massive hit with young & old & the wonderful beach of Praia Verde only a short drive away. A couple of interesting nights were spent in Lupi's restaurant, food was excellent & Luis was very entertaining & generous giving free children's meals & complimentary wine for the grown ups. also I would highly recommend the restaurant Sabores de Beira just on the outskirts of the village especially the Cataplana at 20 euro for 2 people amazing value & great service. Further afield I would highly recommend Pezinhos n'aeia overlooking Praia Verde & Restaurante Porto De Recreio in VRS Antonio Marina. I cannot speak highly enough about the owner of the villa, Harvey who kept me informed from time of booking with little titbits of information just to whet the appetite. I would recommend this property to anyone who would like to relax in this tranquil part of real Portugal
