About the Owner

The property belongs to my parents but I am the one answering all the e-mails and other type of contacts. I also welcome all the guests on their arrival. I am 39 year's old and have always worked with tourism. My mother will welcome you with a delicious home made cake and my father is responsible for most of the renovation work that was done to the property.

Simply wonderful

  • 5 of 5

From the start of the holiday it was wonderful. Met by Silvia who gave a home made cake and some essential supplies in the fridge.

We opted for the pool to be heated and it was lovely. All mod cons...including washing machine and bbq outside. The pictures don't show how much room there is in villa and gardens. Just a short drive from Intermarche. Sao bras, tavira, faro just short drive away and lovely towns to visit.

Car essential but the peace and quiet was wonderful. Came home feeling very relaxed.

Will definitely be going back...just got to check calendar.

Fabulous villa

  • 4 of 5

This was our second time at the villa. Again it was the perfect break, very relaxing and restful. It has all the facilities you need and more and the outside space and pool are excellent. Another wonderful cake from Silvia's mum just adds to the very extensive welcome pack. We enjoyed it so much we will definitely go again.

From the Owner

The property belongs to my grand mother's family since 1910. My parents had it renovated in 2004/05 after my grand parents went to live with us. My grandmother died in 2010 at the age of 91 but my grandfather is still alive and he is 89 year's old. I lived here till I was 9 years old and I have beautiful memories of all the place and surroundings.

From the Owner

My mother wanted the property to be a home, not a holiday villa. We want people to fill in a family home with everything they will need. My mother welcomes all the guests with a delicious home made cake and when possible with some vegetables and fruit from the orchard and also my fahter home made wine. The villa is completely private and can not be overlooked.
