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.

Well appointed secluded cottage. Just what we hoped for

  • 5 of 5

Ours was a golfing holiday so we needed somewhere to chill out after a day on the course. Karl made us very welcome and showed us around before leading us to the local supermarket to stock up on everything we needed.

The pool was very welcome as the weather was unseasonably hot. We barbecued twice which was great as the large courtyard was private and pretty. The kitchen had all the equipment we needed and a large fridge and full size oven. Plenty room for two of us and probably ideal for a family of four. Thanks to karl for a wonderful break. Hope to visit again.

A beautiful and quiet oasis

  • 5 of 5

We spent ten nights here recently. Conveniently and centrally located for those who want to see both the eastern and western Algarve. The villa is just as described, with lots of conveniences. Karl and Steven have spent years perfecting this quiet oasis. Be sure to ask them questions about the area!

Nice clean rural accommodation - very relaxing.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for 10 days in September. Whilst the accommodation is not modern, it is comfortable and relaxing and we felt very at home here. The location is very rural and the local village is not really walk-able, especially when you experience how the Portuguese drive, as the road is quite busy; having a hire car is a necessity. We found no useful shops in the local village; the SPAR is dreadful. The best supermarket was ALDI as this seemed to have more of what we wanted, but the larger PINGO DOCE is cheaper - both are a 20 minute drive away. We spent a very quiet relaxing 10 days enjoying the sunshine and the pool, which whilst not Olympic size and unheated, was very welcome when temperatures were averaging 30+ degrees every day. We only went out to one of the recommended restaurants but didn't enjoy the experience so we stayed in mostly. If staying in enjoying the cottage and relaxing is your thing then I would recommend giving some thought to taking some entertainment with you, as the TV has very limited channels and the DVD's are quite a random selection; this could be an ideal opportunity to catch up on your box sets if that's your thing. I view this accommodation ideal for an older couple looking for a very tranquil holiday away from it all and wanting real peace and quiet. Due to the property's rural location there's a list of " do's and don'ts " but most of them were common sense. You will be asked to clean the property before you leave as the owners do not employ a cleaner; we had never been asked this before at any previous rentals, but we always clean properties before we leave so it didn't bother us. We had a very enjoyable 10 days at this cottage.

Owner's Response: I was surprised at some aspects of your review, the property is listed as a luxury cottage as the photo's show the decor as a cottage and not a modern apartment. The village has many Portuguese supermarkets and a fresh fish & veg as well as fresh baked bread in the daily market, so being disappointing in a new Spar store tells us you wanted a English shopping experience in Portugal. The Pool is 7.30Mtr so more than large enough to be called a swimming pool. The property has a 32" smart TV with access to internet , Google Play store , Netflix etc: But you choose not to pay the €15 for 30GB sim card valid for 15 days to use the internet. With regards to being asked to clean the property it is listed as self catering not a hotel.We were glad you enjoyed your 10 day stay even though you broke a 1 year old sun lounger and were not charged for the damage. We have many families who enjoy the property due to it's central location and return each year as the 17 other reviews show.

Luxury Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Very tastefully decorated with everything you could possibly want for a self catering holiday. Owners Karl and Steven were very friendly and helpful. Secure off road parking for our car. Near to Zoo, Silves and great local restaurants. Only a short car ride to beautiful Algarve beaches.

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.
