Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful time in Villa Le. The house is great for families especially for young children and people with disabilities as everything is on one level, no steps and the pool wasn't too deep.

Pauline and Fintan made us feel at home immediately meeting us at the villa with a lovely gesture of food and wine.

The house was immaculate, the pool glistening and the views stunning.

There is plenty to do and see locally, but if you fancy venturing further afield everything is so accessible by car and easy to get around.

I would definitely recommend your home to my friends and family as it was perfect. - Sharon, UK

Wonderful villa and wonderful hosts

  • 5 of 5

The villa is ~40mins easy drive from Faro airport and is easy to find. There are no tricky roads to navigate which is important if you are not used to driving on the right hand side! Fintan and Pauline were wonderful hosts who met us at the villa and showed us around. They were available to help at any point. The villa itself is wonderful, clean, spacious, well-equipped and a wonderful place for a relaxing holiday. Fintan and Pauline have made it a home away from home for visitors. We spent most of the time by the pool which is private and a good size! A cool dip was perfect for cooling down from the heat of the afternoon. There are plenty of shops within 10-15mins drive as well as lots of fresh fish. Watch out for the 9am horn beep which announces the arrival of the fishmonger on wheels. We will definitely be going back again and as soon as possible! Thank you Fintan and Pauline!

A real gem

  • 5 of 5

Wow! This is a stunning villa set in a very beautiful and peaceful location. The photos give you a sense of what the villa is like but we were amazed at how spacious the property and gardens are. Everything required for a relaxing time was provided. The property was well equipped and the owners have thought of everything including a fridge outside for drinks and a pool house with shower and toilet. It was so relaxing and we spent a lot of the holiday in the pool. We went with our 6 year old son and the pool area was fenced off with a gate and they are able to make the whole property child friendly. The garden had lots of different seating areas and the view from the rooftop terrace was fantastic.

The property was immaculate when we arrived and during our 2 week stay, the owners Fintan & Pauline, came in a couple of times to clean the villa and change the bedding and towels. Fintan also cleaned the pool on a regular basis.

We can't wait to come back again and would definitely recommend this property to our family and friends.

We hired a car for the duration of our stay and the beaches at Vilamoura and Albufeira were within a 30 minute drive. Due to its rural location a hire car is essential.

Pauline and Fintan were there to meet us at the villa and were very warm and welcoming. Nothing was too much trouble and they provided a very generous welcome pack of food and drinks (including 2 bottles of lovely wine) which was really appreciated after our early start.

Car: necessary

Special interest holidays:

The rural location makes it an ideal spot for hill walkers and hikers.Bird watching,in the Valley near by.



Many of the Algarve's finest beaches are within a 30 minute drive.There are lots of golf courses just 30 minutes drive.


Faro is the nearest airport being a 30 minute drive from the property. Car hire is essential and the owner can recommend some rental companies if you wish.


The nearest village is Benafim (3 mins drive) and a little further on you will find the beautiful picturesque village of Alte with its charming cobbled streets and whitewashed houses. Salir, Messines, Boliqueme and Silves are other towns within the locality, that are certainly worth a visit.
