Almancil Farmhouse

  • 4 of 5

Lovely property, very clean with everything we needed provided. The owners directions and information was very helpful. Thoroughly enjoyed eight days there, only downside ( which the owners could not be responsible for ) there was quite a lot of barking from the neighbours dogs both day and night.

Traditional Farmhouse - great location and pool

  • 5 of 5

Had a great stay. House is traditional but clean/tidy/everything works. It was over 40 degrees when we were there, so the desk fans provided did not quite cool the place as much as needed (note - there are no ceiling fans). Pool is lovely and huge/well maintained and not at all overlooked. Terraces and outdoor eating was perfect! Communications pre-stay with John were quick/efficient/clear. Almancil is less than a 5 min drive and has all of the amenities you'll need - supermarket, restaurants, cafes with wifi etc .Would definitely recommend as good value for the area.

Lovely Villa

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time in the farmhouse villa. Great location as surrounded by Portuguese families and not to far from main areas in the location. Villa was very clean and the pool was a great size. Very relaxing holiday, we would definitely return. The owner was very helpful and flexible with when we departed due to our flight times in the evening, which allowed us to remain in the villa.
