So relaxing, a perfect holiday, I have recommended this villa to friends and will be returning.

  • 5 of 5

Sergio is the perfect host, his villa, gardens and pools have been built to a high standard, with plenty of space to relax in comfort.

The setting is both beautiful and peaceful and with the lovingly cared for grounds, we felt very lucky to have found Quinta do Mangueiral.

We hired a car, which was a must, although we didn't roam further than Silves and Alte.

We look forward to returning.

Fabulous Property!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay at this beautiful villa. Far exceeded our expectations! We were a party of 4 - 2 adults and 2 teenage children. Plenty to do in the area but, as mentioned in another review, hire car is a must (we used Zitautos). The villa is even bigger than it looks in the photos.

Everything you need including hairdryers, juice machine, large fridge/freezer. Very clean property.

Lovely restaurant 5 minutes away. Plenty of shops nearby for provisions. Boys went fishing approx. 30 minutes away at Alvor.

So much to see in the area and everything to suit all tastes. My favourite was Alte.

Our host, Sergio, is such a nice gentleman and always available if you need him!

Highly, highly recommend this villa and looking forward to our next visit. We will be returning with another family (my sister + 3) - the property is so vast you can all find your place to unwind. Beautiful views with a very welcome cool breeze when you need it!

We have just come back from the most relaxing holiday we have ever had. The place is really a true labour of love. The House was very clean and had everything we needed.The Garden was such an inspiration, so many different species of plants and trees and the scent from the flowers incredible. Both the natural and normal pool were wonderful. We are hoping to go there again as soon as we can.

We truly had the most wonderful time

A beautiful hilltop location with stunning views.

  • 5 of 5

Dear Sergio

Thank you for a great stay at your house in Vale Fuzeiros. It certainly has the WOW factor. I counted 30 frangi pani plants around the house alone - these must produce an intoxicating smell during summer months.

You must have worked very hard to transform the hillside into such a lush tropical garden which contain plants that I have not seen outside the Caribbean or Hawaii.

For anyone who likes peace and tranquillity this is the place to be, you can even see a real starry sky without light pollution.

The house is tastefully furnished and very comfortable. I would like to return soon!.

Tropical Paradise

  • 5 of 5

The stay at this property exceeded expectations . It is clean ,well appointed, secluded and the views are spectacular. It boasts a huge variety of tropical fruit and flower bearing trees and shrubs .It was all it said on the website and more.

The owner who lives close by was very helpful yet un-intrusive. He both designed and built the property and gardens so is rightly proud of the result

The village close by has 3 restaurants offering wholesome inexpensive fayre and there is a small supermarket for essentials.

The main town is about 15 minutes by car and has all the amenities required with an historic castle open to visitors. We played both golf clubs in this area. A further 15 minutes would get you to the main tourist centres such as Portimao and Lagos

A great base to be away from it all but close enough to the action when desired

We will be returning again in 2016 this time for longer and with family so this is the best recommendation.

Diss Norfolk


  • 5 of 5

We were a party of 6 Adults & 2 children. The villa is lovely & spacious & well equipped. We didn't feel on top of each other at all' not that we spent a lot of time indoors, we spent evenings on the lovely terrace. The natural pool is lovely with lots of little fish in it. None of us swam in it even though the water was very clear. The swimming pool area was great with plenty of sunbeds, the bar area is equipped with a fridge & electric so you don't have to keep going up to the villa for drinks etc.

The grounds are fantastic all tropical trees & plants all planted by Sergio the owner.

You need a car as it is a remote spot & high up the mountain. The nearest town is just 15 minutes away. There is a good traditional local restaurant Casa Vindhas 5 minutes by car. You could walk but is very hilly.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here just wished we could have had 2 weeks instead of one as so relaxing

Would we go back??? Definitely
