Beautiful house with lovely facilities

  • 5 of 5

We had a great family holiday at this lovely house. It felt like a home from home and had pretty much everything you could need for a great holiday. The swimming pool was great and the table tennis/table football/trampoline and array of garden games kept the children (and us) happy all week.

You do need a car as the house is a couple of kilometres from the local town - but it's only a few minutes to a reasonably good local supermarket and not too far to bigger ones in Olhao. The nearest town (Moncarapacho) has a few restaurants and there are plenty of other choices in Tavira which isn't too far away.

Would highly recommend this place.

Beautiful farmhouse with private garden

  • 5 of 5

This was out 2nd visit to this wonderful farmhouse, it like our second home.

It has everything you could want or need, even beach towels.

The photos don't do the house justice it's stunning and the garden is lovely. Now with the added fun of the tennis court, which the whole family enjoyed.

You will definitely need a car to get about. You won't be disappointed if you stay here.

Wonderful house and grounds close to great town

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here with two friends in June 2016 and couldn't have been more impressed!

The house has a lot of charm but also finished with all the home comforts you could hope for and was very clean (the oven was so shiny we were scared to use it!). It is really spacious with big bedrooms and a very large communal living, dining, kitchen area.

The grounds and pool are very well maintained and feel very private and have more equipment (loungers, pool toys, garden toys) than we've had in other villas we've stayed in.

The villa requires a car, it is off a track around 2-3km from the local town. The town, whilst quite small, had a great shop and numerous restaurants. We only had three nights out so we didn't get to try all of the food options but the ones we tried were all very friendly and served great quality food (which was ridiculously cheap!)

Overall we highly recommend the house, if anything, the pictures on here don't fully do it justice. Our only tip would be to make sure you know where you're heading before you leave as it takes a little searching to find it first time round.
