Lovely villa in peaceful location

  • 4 of 5

Delightful villa away from the main roads but close to Silves town and the main road across the Algarve. The property is very private with beautiful gardens and attractive pool and terrace. The house is well furnished and very homely with nice interior touches. The house was a great base for visiting the main visitor areas of the Algarve whilst being away from the busy tourist towns. If you are looking for a quiet villa, tucked away, then Fig Tree House is just the ticket. The owners Douglas and Sean were very attentive and made us feel very welcome. The only negative for us was the hard beds which were very unforgiving. The option of a mattress topper would have been welcome and would have made the stay ten out of ten.

Fantastic holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Fig Tree House over the May/June half term break with our 3 children. Sean and Douglas really take care of the villa and it is well equipped and well decorated. The pool is the perfect size and the villa, being dual aspect, means you can take advantage of a breeze or move in and out of the sun. The only thing that was a bit patchy was the TV as it sometimes froze on the kids in the morning but it worked fine in the evening. We would love to come back.

A fabulous fortnight!!

  • 5 of 5

We have been home a week from the beautiful Fig Tree house and are pining for a return as soon as possible. The location is superb for a peaceful break and the villa and gardens are beautifully maintained and incredibly well equipped. Sean and Douglas' attention to detail is first class and nothing is too much trouble in their desire to make your stay as idyllic possible. We would not hesitate to recommend Fig Tree house to anyone looking for a relaxing villa holiday that is a cut above the rest. Thanks again, Martin,Claire,Liv,Callum and Bob.

A lovely quiet well appointed villa.

  • 5 of 5

We wanted somewhere quiet with a nice pool and good facilities in the villa. We had all of that and more. There was almost no traffic noise, the peace was amazing. There was plenty of places to sit, read a book and enjoy the views and sun. Everything in the villa was well appointed and spotlessly clean. We certainly hope to be back again.Having re read this review it does not give Douglas and Sean justice to all the hard work they put into making this a beautiful home.

Yet another great holiday for us at Fig Tree House. The weather wasn't the best this time around, but this did not stop us enjoying a thoroughly relaxing stay.

As we have come to expect, the villa is clean and very well maintained. There have been subtle enhancements made to the villa's décor and TV/Internet entertainment systems since our last visit. The owners are very proud of their villa, and rightly so.

As ever, our friends Doug and Sean were very welcoming and are also great company, happy to join us for some food, beer and a glass (or two) of wine… we very much look forward to our next visit.
