quite private location with a decent size pool

  • 5 of 5

just returned from a nice relaxing week at this villa with my wife son and his fiance. we loved the pool and privacy there.

Everything was clean and tidy and cleaner attended twice during our stay.

some bits do look quite aged but not a problem to us and I think the price joe offers this property reflects its not brand new.

i would recommend some sort of transport unless you only plan a odd day out (it is a very long walk to caverio) and we found the taxis expensive so i hired a scooter.

All in all we had a great time and found the area to be extremely safe and genuinely friendly.

we will return if possible in 2019

Great place for a relaxed holiday

  • 5 of 5

Arrived using sun transfers as we did not want to hire a car ,driver was able to find villa easily. Was met be the cleaning lady who was very friendly and told us what days she would be returning on and what times,(avoids any embarrassing moments).the villa was as described as was the outside area so no complaints .

We ate at the opescador resteraunt on the first night as it is only about 100 metres away ,it has a limited menu but very friendly owner and the food was good and the prices even better. We bought some bottled water from the restraunt as it is quite a way to the supermarket (a small welcome pack of provisions to make a cup of coffee would be big bonus)

We used taxis to get into carviero costing 7 euro ,you can walk to supermarket takes about 30 minutes and get taxi back with shopping for 5 euro.also takes about 30 minutes to walk to Lagoa bus terminal from where you can get buses to other towns very cheaply.

The pool area was so nice we found it difficult to motivate ourselves to get out and about as much as we intended so we stocked up the fridge and cooked for ourselves a few nights as the villa is well equipped.

There are only news channels in English on the TV but there is a DVD player so taking a few films for those nights when you can't be bothered to go out is a good idea.

To sum up the villa was great value and a car would be useful but we found it quite easy to use taxis and buses so we could both enjoy a bottle of wine with our meals.we look forward to returning.

Relaxing holiday destination.

  • 4 of 5

Arrived at the villa and was immediately impressed at the size of the outside area. The pool was a lovely size which we used everyday to cool off in. The villa itself was very clean and that is down to Isabelle the maid, she informed us each time she would be back. It is in a lovely quiet location but still within easy reach to some lovely beaches and restaurants. We visited restaurant Nuno which is a 5min drive away and the food was lovely and a very friendly atmosphere. All communications with Joe the owner were answered straight away. All in all we had a wonderful 10days here and have already booked for next summer. Can't wait to return.

lovely comfortable retreat

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a lovely stay. It is a very well equipped comfortable villa and exceptionally clean (Isabelle is a diamond and keeps everything perfect). There is a bbq area...which we used most days and a lovely large pool in which to keep cool. The kitchen is well equipped and spacious. The beds are lovely and comfortable which isn't always the case for holiday accommodation. Wi fi is always a plus for us. Joe always replies to emails promptly. All in all perfect from booking to enjoying the lovely quiet peaceful holiday. The only complaint I have is that it had to end and we came back to the cold, wet UK. Thank you once again Joe and Isabelle
