About the Owner

Hello. Prior to being an "Owner" I was a nurse, I qualified when I was 21 and worked in a large hospital for many years before having my two boys who are now young adults. I am married and spend most of my time in the home here in the UK and in Portugal. In my spare time I ride horses and arrange the villa rentals! If you have any questions about the villa please do not hesitate to contact me. Jane.

The perfect villa for a hassle free family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at Rosmaninho

The villa was great with plenty of room and a wonderful garden with great views. The weather was also perfect and we couldn't get the kids away from the pool.

Hopefully we will be able to stay again in the future.

This Villa is perfect for a hassle free family holiday

From the Owner

We looked all over Europe for our holiday home and in 2006 we bought our first villa in Vale del Rei, we loved it that much we bought Rosmaninho earlier this year. Only two and a half hours from the UK and no time difference, we love this area of the Algarve. It's peaceful, uncongested and very pretty, with its spectacular rugged coastline and quiet sandy coves to miles of sandy beaches, acres of vine yards, orange groves and the mountains of Monchique which offer a spectacular backdrop to the area. The Portuguese are very friendly and so willing to help, the Portuguese food and wine is delicious. Since finding our little haven our globe trotting days are over!

From the Owner

When we do decide to have a holiday, we usually have a few jobs to do when we visit, we have to make sure we have a clock and calender so that we remember what day it is! Most of the day is spent sitting around the pool sleeping, reading and swimming. Most of the evenings are spent around the BBQ eating, drinking and enjoying spectacular sunsets. Even the kids are reluctant to leave the villa! We love walking through the neighbouring countryside in the evening. Rosmaninho is very spacious inside with lots of space outside, you can lose everyone else so easily, if you wish too! The master bedroom is very romantic with its private balcony, the four poster bed is gorgeous it's just like being on honeymoon again! The villa is surrounded by mature gardens.
