    3 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6
    Your piece of Portuguese paradise is located a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of the Algarve yet its still only 25 minutes from the airport, sea and golf courses. This is the real Algarve which has fortunately remained totally Portuguese. Mesquita Alta is a little village and all your neighbours are Portuguese although most speak a bit of English. The villa is on an orchard full of Mediterranean fruit trees and part of the joy of staying here is picking your own fruit straight from the tree! Imagine fresh figs in August for breakfast or what about freshly squeezed grape juice in September with your lunch? You can even help pick the carob pods in summer too or help with the olive harvest in winter. What can be more special than returning with freshly pressed olive oil that y... more

5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

From my first communication with Jean I knew that our stay in the villa would be fantastic and it exceeded our expectations. Jean gave us so much information on the villa, Sao Bras and surrounding area that planning our stay was effortless. Jean met us at the villa and gave us a detailed tour. She left us a welcome pack...

The villa and grounds are beautiful, very comfortable and luxurious with lots of added extras that you wouldn’t expect, but go to making your holiday that extra bit special. We stayed for just a week at the beginning of November - still sunny enough to sunbathe by and swim in the pool :-) - but would have to say that...
