Guestbook comments from the owner

Probably the best break we have had as a family. The villa was fantastic & the kids had a great time in the pool. The Pirie family. 2011

We really enjoyed our time in Portugal and having the facilities of your fabulous villa as a base was fantastic. I will recommend this villa to anyone I know going to Portugal and hope indeed to return ourselves. Thanks again for everything. Colm.2012.

We have had another wonderful week. This is our 2nd year at the villa and once again everything was perfect. Fantastic accommodation v tremendous facilities. We enjoyed it so much and hope to return again next year. Newlands/Davidson families. 2013.

My husband and I stayed at this villa with my daughter ,partner and three children for one week, what can I say it is by far the best villa I have stayed at in the Algarve, being frequent travellers to the beautiful country, we have stayed in many villas, but this one certainly is the winner. Anabela is such a warm person who made us feel very much at home.The location is perfect and the villa has everything you need to make your stay perfect. If anyone is thinking about booking, DONT think, just book it, trust me you won't be disappointed.

Superb villa

  • 5 of 5

Great villa with every thing you need provided. Spotless and well decorated. Handy for nipping into the local town, only 5 mins by car. Swimming pool great although quite deep in parts. BBQ area fantastic with a table tennis table as well. Will return without doubt.

A wonderful place to unwind

  • 5 of 5

All of the family loved this place. There was plenty of room to spread out, the place is beautifully clean and well decorated. All the utensils and furniture you could ever want. Gorgeous pool. Fab outdoor eating area (beware of spills - the ants come fast). Couldn't recommend it more.
