We are the owners, Mary and Syd Morris and are from the North East of England and have been married for 37 years. I run a successful business in England and Syd works offshore in the Oil and Gas industry. After holidaying in Portugal and enjoying all of the magnificent things it has to offer it was an easy decision to purchase a second home here. We decided it was simply a fantastic environment for creating a perfect family vacation home. It is well utilised by ourselves, our children and grand children. Year upon year we improve facilities inside and outside the villa.
Mary Cameron Morris purchased this villa in 2010
Our villa is typically Algarvian in style whilst benefitting from a host of modern amenities. Superbly positioned on the fringe of Sao Bras and is wonderfully peaceful with an extremely private 10 meters x 5 meters swimming pool. The immediate locality is very picturesque, surrounding hills and valleys with marvellous scenic views. Whilst Sao Bras is a bustling town it is not in the heart of the manic tourist areas. In a nut shell it is a perfect family location.
Conveniently the property is located only 20 minutes from the airport. We have the benefit of being in a tranquil location, yet only 2 minutes from the centre of Sao Bras town. Within a 30 minute drive there is a host of attractions to suit all tastes. Golden Beaches, Lushes Golf Courses, Historic Towns, Gypsy Markets, Marinas and too many superb restaurants to count. Sao Bras is an area steeped in history famous as a main cork producing region. Quite simply our situation is suited for ramblers, golf enthusiasts, beach hunters, food and wine lovers, families and relaxing couples. Or a central base for exploring. We love it...
This was a real find, a gem amongst all the Villa's we looked at. Decorated to a high standard, wonderfully furnished including many extras like beach towels, and all the little things that make so much difference, like a coffee maker, and plenty of things for the children to do. My Daughter and her friend loved 9.30pm when the pool lights came back on they could go swimming again. I'd recommend a car, as it's located up a bit of a hill and feels a long way to walk in 30 degree heat with the shopping. The help we received in advance from the owners was first class and I'd highly recommend it.
We were very impressed with the villa and its grounds, which were exactly as described on the listing. The kitchen was well-equipped with good quality appliances and a good supply of crockery and utensils. The bar-be-que area was great and obviously designed by someone who loves to bar-be-que! The outdoor eating/relaxing area had a good supply of comfortable chairs and loungers and there were areas for both sun worshipers and shade dwellers alike. The pool was a good size, clean and safe for small children under adult supervision. The large screen TV and extensive set of DVDs (plus X Box) were most appreciated and there was an extensive collection of books to suit most tastes. The beds were all comfortable and overall the villa was clean and well-maintained. Overall, villa was pleasingly decorated and furnished, cool and airy. The nearby town of Sao Bras has a pleasant leafy avenues and has a good collection of bars and restaurants. The villa is easy to reach from Faro airport, but do not rely on sat-nav to get you there. especially in the dark! The owners were very helpful in responding to questions and indeed provided a very friendly and professional service. The phone call we received whilst we were trying to find the villa for the first time in darkness was most fortuitous and particularly welcome. Without it, we could still be driving around searching!
