Wonderful relaxing retreat in the Algarve

  • 5 of 5

I absolutely love this house! We stayed there with a couple of friends middle of May 2017 and I am already looking so forward to come back again next year!!!

It's a secluded holiday home at the end of a cul de sac, up the hill, overlooking rural surroundings and the ocean. So peaceful, all you can hear are some cicadas. All the plants around the garden were in full bloom (springtime … amazing field of flowers in the back yard) and there were lots of swallows flying around, and even white doves. And a little shy cat came around for dinner every night :)

The bedrooms are very comfy and spacious (lots of cabinets to store your stuff), and so is the rest of the villa … super cosy living room and a very well equipped kitchen … we did not miss a thing! There's a capsule coffee machine but I was so glad to find a plunger as well :D

I'm very much about sustainable living, so I was stoked to see those solar panels, and I told the owner the only thing I was not perfectly happy with is the shared shower, because there's not so much of water coming out (being a German haha) … but the other 2 showers are fine, and it's good to save on water anyway ;) Also the eco mode on the dishwasher is crap, if you use it, you gotta wash/dry the dishes again, but the regular mode is doing it's job!

What I loved most about this place (besides the private pool, we even did a skinny dip hehe) was the BBQ area … we spent such a lovely evening down there. Beautiful light setting (and my favourite WiFi music), and the local dourada we bought in the supermarket was the tastiest ever! They have these fish grillers (idk how to call it) in one of the top cubboards, and even the coal and fire starters were provided. Also some other people left behind some delicious Algarve honey and organic olive oil … oh I wish this carries on :)

Some other tipps about the area:

All the villages east of Faro are very authentic and well worth a visit … old towns, churches, cafes/bars/restaurants, markets, delicous food and cheap beer. You need a rental car to go there, or a cab driver. I can highly recommend (up to 8 passengers, super friendly and reliable.)

In Olhao (awesome place for murals btw) you can rent bikes for a day trip to Praia do Barril (11k one way), a beautiful beach, with a little train for the last 1.5k, cool for kids.

In Faro you can hop on a boat to cruise around the Ria Formosa National Park and also enjoy the pumping night life.

We all left happy as!!!

fantastic villa

  • 5 of 5

we stayed in this villa for 7 nights at the beggining of August. I cannot begin to tell you just how beautiful this villa is.

We came as a family of 5. We were met by the owner & his wife at the airport, who guided us back to the villa, following them. They went out of their way to be helpful, and even drove to a supermarket on the way to the villa, so we could pick up some essential items for our stay. The town of olhao is very close and had everything we needed, including a shopping centre, with go karting for the kids. The villa itself is up a dirt track, and though its quite rocky to get to, its also the last villa on the end of the road, so its very private. I would suggest hiring a car is essential. The villa has a magnificent view over the countryside & a view of the beach. There are 4 bedrooms, all very spacious, and 3 bathrooms. The villa is beautifully spacious and laid out, with a very large lounge area and a spacious kitchen and dining area. They have a smart tv with english telly, so when you are relaxing, you are able to curl up and watch it.

The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed, as well as a laundry room which we were able to use.

By far for us, the pool was the best bit, it is a lot larger than it looks in the pictures, and the whole family loved it. As an added bonus it has under pool lighting in the evenings. The villa has beautiful grounds surrounding it. The pictures on the site dont do it justice, it is perfect for a family, and the owners are so friendly and helpful, they really went out of their way to make sure we had a wonderful stay.

Havre de paix à l'écart du tourisme de masse

  • 5 of 5

Agréable villa, au calme (A l'exception du coq et du chien du voisin), loin du tourisme de masse et à proximité des jolies villes de Tavira et d'Olhao, ainsi que de leurs belles plages. Elle est bien distribuée et permet de partager de bons moments à 8, sans se marcher sur les pieds...

Elle est également bien équipée. Vous ne manquerez de rien.

Merci Helen
