Guestbook comments from the owner

Just a short email to say thank you, we had a brilliant time on holiday when we stayed in your lovely cottage between 18th and 25th August. We have stayed in quite a few holiday homes in the past few years and yours is one of the best if not THE best. It is the little things that make it so special, telling us where the best places to eat and shop are and local events that we would never find ourselves. The cottage is so very comfortable as well and so well equipped. Thank you again we will be coming back!

Very friendly told us all local restaurants, and places to go our first time in Portugal, and will be coming back

We have been coming to the algarve for 27 years and your cottage is the best so far. It is like staying in the old Portugal with all the mod cons - it has everything anyone could need and is so clean. The garden pool and terraces are superb and love it so much have booked for September and April 2010' You were so very kind to Liz and myself.

Peaceful Retreat

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was ideal for the holiday break my wife and I required.

The tranquil setting and well appointed accommodation is ideal for those that wish to be away from the madding crowd. The accommodation was very private, with its own court yard leading to a private pool area, overlooking the owners finely structured garden.

Karl and Steven were perfect hosts, they were there with help and advice when required and respected our privacy at all other times.

There are numerous good local restaurants within easy driving distance and some for those who are able, can walk to.

I would highly recommend this cottage to anyone who wants peace and quiet, yet within striking distance (driving) of beaches and places of interest (ie Sylves town & further a field the palace at Estoi Nr. Faro).

We will defiantly consider a return visit to this cottage.

Little Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This was a "Little Haven of Paradise" tucked away in the quiet countryside of Algoz. The property was clean and well maintained with all the things you needed to make your holiday complete. Karl was always on hand if there was any problems and advise you on the best restaurants and places to visit. The village of Algoz is a 5min drive away and is full of good restaurants and a daily Market. The people of Algoz are very friendly and make you welcome with time to talk to you when ordering food. As everything in the Cottage is on one level it makes it easy for people with any mobility problems to access all the facilities.

Would recommend this property.

This was our first time through Owners Direct so we weren't sure what to expect, but we were greeted and shown around even though we were later than expected. The welcome pack was perfect as we arrived too late to buy any provisions. The cottage was spotless, and best of all, peaceful, Our privacy was respected but Karl was always on hand for help and advice if needed.

Everything we needed was there for the perfect holiday, and the pool was a welcome relief on hot days. All in all, highly recommended - we'll certainly be going back!

Thanks karl & Steven :-)

Memorable Cottage In Algoz Portugal

  • 5 of 5

First impressions last. From the outset we could tell the cottage was like our own little haven with its mature gardens and well planned sitting areas.

The pool area was immaculate as was the pool itself, with plenty of space to relax in and just the tonic to cool down after sunbathing.

The cottage has all the comforts to unwind and totally peaceful, full of character with all the modern utilities you require.

The location is just what we wanted, only several miles from prestigious beaches, good restaurants and shopping malls.

The owners Steven and Karl really do a good job making you feel welcome, they gave us informative advice when we asked and their local knowledge is excellent. A huge thanks to both of you. We had two weeks of bliss and plan to visit again.
