A real gem :)

Fabulous experience in a wonderful villa set in a lovely peaceful setting. We have been holidaying in the Algarve for 20 years and have stayed at many villas but this one was the best experience. Away from the noise and bussle of the built up areas yet only a short drive to the marina and beaches. The owners and management team were excellent and the villa has everything you need for a family. Highly recommended and huge thanks to Judi and Peter for a wonderful holiday. Looking forward to booking again in the future :)

What an exceptional villa. It was everything we expected and more. The weather was perfect and we made good use of the fantastic sized pool. The location was a big plus as it was not too far to travel by car to Vilamoura (15 mins) Albufeira and Silves. Fantastic beaches only 20 minutes away and local supermarkets (Lidl and Aldi) just down the road (5 mins).
A big thank you to Judi and Peter for all your help and useful information. What a fabulous holiday - we will definitely be back.

Surpassed our expectations!
By T&M S And Family on 03-Aug-2019
The villa surpassed all our expectations. We have been to Portugal a number of times and this is by far the best villa we have ever stayed in - we barely left it! The setting, the beautiful grounds and the decor are second to none!
We loved very minute here & will definitely be coming back - thank you for providing such a peaceful and relaxing retreat.

Thank you for letting us stay at this amazing beautiful villa. We have loved being here and did not want to leave :( and would have quite happily have stayed there forever.
Cannot fault the villa or the service we have received.
Thank you for an unforgettable holiday!

Lovely spacious, clean and well equipped Villa.
Plenty of outdoor space. Good sized pool which we used everyday.
The air conditoning in the bedrooms and electric shutters were much appreciated as we were fortunate to have very good weather!
Quiet location, but in easy reach of supermarkets, restaurants and beaches.
For us it was perfect - we could not have asked for more. Highly recommended.
Superbly appointed villa with a great location
By KP on 01-Aug-2018
We found that the villa had everything we wanted and the attention to detail was exceptional. The electric shutters on the windows were invaluable especially as temperatures were up to 43 degrees during our visit. The pool is nicely private and the villa has plenty of shaded areas for dining outside. As we were there for several weeks we had the opportunity to fully appreciate the standards that had been applied by the owners as they had prepared the villa to meet their requirements.
We had a tremendous time in the villa and would recommend it to anyone. Having three bedrooms with their own bathrooms was a key requirement for us and this worked well.
We have already contacted the owners to book a future holiday.
Away from the hustle and bustle

We found it to be away from the hustle and bustle of the towns yet an easy drive from so many wonderful places.
Amazing well equipped villa
By Sue B on 28-Sep-2017
An amazing well equipped property that truly suited our needs as we were attending a wedding in the vicinity. Judi and Peter were really helpful and answered all our questions about the area and what was available to us. They also kindly recommended restaurants for us for a special dinner we were organising (try Wildfire Smokehouse in Quarteira). Most days were spent at the villa as it is in a quiet area so perfect for chilling and relaxing around the pool. Our family had a brilliant week and would not hesitate to return.

I just wanted to say that we had the most fantastic time in your lovely villa. The girls enjoyed swimming (it was not too cold for them :-)) and being able to watch their favourite cartoons. For us, your villa has been all about relaxing by the pool with a good book. I also think the location of your villa is perfect. I have already recommended your place to close family and friends and I hope we will be back some day.
Well appointed and comfortable

Peaceful, private, luxury villa. This villa exceeded our expectations. Everything you could need is provided.
Excellent, well equipped modern villa.
By Fiona W on 11-Aug-2015
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this villa. The villa is very clean, modern and very well maintained. The villa is suitable for children having a gated pool and the property is very secure with electric gates and electric shutters. Our 3 boys (ages 2, 8 & 11) enjoyed the pool although they did find it slightly chilly at times. The owners provided very good customer service and the villa contained a very informative folder with info on local restaurants/places of interest. Unfortunately the local restaurant within walking distance of the villa has closed but may open next year. There is a local cafe within walking distance which sells delicious fresh cakes. The villa is very close to Vilamoura where there are plenty of shops/restaurants. We also visited Zoo Marine, 20mins drive which the kids loved. We would recommend this villa to family and friends who are looking for a more rural location but within easy diving distance to busier resorts.
