my parents bought the property in 1996 ,it was their retirement dream come true, they had many happy years, dividing their time between England and Portugal in equal measure.
Gordon Campbell purchased this in 1996
We stayed for two weeks, with a family group of up to five people. The villa is just how it looks in the pictures - a nice, family-friendly house with lovely views from the terrace across to the sea, and you can watch storks and flamingoes on the nature reserve!
The house itself has a long history with the Campbells, and so has everything you need to enjoy your stay. The furnishings reflect the traditional rustic tastes of the owners, with local pottery kitchen ware and charming bedroom furniture. There are many useful things available to borrow during your stay for BBQ's and trips to the beach - parasols, cool box etc; and the two bathrooms mean arriving back from the beach everyone can get showered quickly and easily.
My sister and her son were with us for for the first week and she used the sofa bed and slept comfortably on it.
Gordon was an excellent friendly host and answered any queries promptly and very straightforwardly.
The Villa is in a handy position for heading off exploring, being not far from the N125, you can hear the traffic at a low level when you're outside but not in an invasive way, and inside the house you don't hear it. There are lots of amenities near by mostly needing a car, but there are a couple of restaurants within walking distance which is handy.
It didn't bother us because the children are older, but for families with young children the cactus garden (which I loved) could be hazardous, and the garden isn't fully enclosed as there is no fence between the garden and the driveway which is next to the road, which is quite quiet but by no means unused.
We loved our time there and found the villa an excellent base for our stay, with many happy times spent relaxing on the terrace and gazing at the view, when we weren't off exploring the region.
