“Perfect accomodation, great host!”
Reviewed 21 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We had such a great family holiday, the first one with our 11 months old baby. The accomodation was secure, clean and nice and had everything we needed. Both Gillian and Bruce were very nice and attentive. They respected our privacy and we didnt feel their presence except when we needed them. They had 3 lovely friendly dogs that our baby girl loved playing with. The pool was great too. The location is convenient and less than 10mins drive to shops and 5mins to the beach Praia da Marinha. There are other beautiful beaches nearby too.
We would definetely recommend staying at this place, its just perfect!

Take it you mean to the Algarve. However there are lots of Portuguese experiences, wish you has asked. Glad you had a lovely relaxing holiday though and thank you for your review.

“Perfect Holiday! - Great location..”
Reviewed 4 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

This was our 4th stay here. The location is perfect, you are only a few minutes away from beautiful beaches and between 10 and 30 minutes away from great attractions. Zoomarine, Lagos Zoo, Slide and Splash etc.

The accommodation is very comfortable, and the landscaped gardens and heated pool are perfect. Such a lovely place for a break. A good selection of books and dvd's, washing machine and buckets and spades for the children! You really feel like you have your own space.

I am would describe myself as having high standards, and i wouldn't hesitate to recommend to friends and family. Gill and Bruce are really thoughtful and helpful with tips on where to go and what to do. Lovely lovely people.

“Absolutely perfect”
Reviewed 25 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We have just celebrated our Silver Wedding anniversary in The Lodge M M and we couldn't have booked a more perfect place to stay.
From the moment we arrived we were made to feel completely at home by Gill and Bruce. They were exceptional hosts, always on hand providing help and advice that really enhanced our holiday but never intruded on our privacy.
The villa was a real home from home with everything provided - right down to some travel scales so we were able to weigh our case before leaving. It is in a beautiful peaceful area and as mentioned in previous reviews a car is a must to explore the best of the local area.
The private terrace was our favourite place for enjoying the sun, completely enclosed by beautiful plants - our very own secret garden! We really enjoyed the beautiful heated pool which is only a few steps away and although it is situated at the bottom of Gill & Bruce's garden this was never a problem. They never used the pool when we did and in fact we hardly saw them while swimming.
We loved our regular visits from Flute, Truffles and Bobby who made us smile every day! We miss you now we are home!
Having stayed in the Algarve several times over the last 10 years this was by far our favourite place and we cannot wait to return.
Thank you Gill and Bruce for making our anniversary so special and sharing your little piece of paradise with us - we are very envious of you!!

“Exceptional Villa and Hosts”
Reviewed 17 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

This was our first family holiday away with a 10 month old and it simply was perfection.
The communication from time of booking was excellent.

When we arrived we were greeted by Gillian and Bruce then later we met the 3 dogs.
From the minute we arrived at the villa till we left we couldn't fault anything.
The villa is very clean, got all the amenities you need, and especially when travelling with a baby! Even the extra wee touches of a teddy bear In the cot!
The gardens are absolutely gorgeous, very private, and the pool is exceptionally clean and just the perfected temperature.
If you want to get out and about you need a car as the villa is situated in a beautiful quiet area only a short drive from gorgeous restaurants and Marinha Beach. Gillian and Bruce are very helpful at all times with recommendations for food or places to visit.
We loved our daily visits from the friendly dogs, who you never hear a noise from, just see their friendly faces at the door.
Gillian and Bruce made us so welcome and made it clear that they were around for anything needed.

We will definitely recommend this villa to family and friends, simply couldn't fault the villa nor our hosts!

Exceptional!

“Perfection in one place!”
Reviewed 4 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Our family of 2 children aged 9 and 5 have just spent a wonderful week in The Lodge MM and it was the most relaxing holiday ever! The Lodge was charming, spotlessly clean and great attention to detail for every little thing one might need on holiday, particularly with children. The heated pool, beautiful gardens and morning visits from the 3 dogs, Flute, Truffles and Bobby kept my children entertained at all times.
A wood burning stove in the evenings allowed us to relax after busy days exploring the beaches and neighboring towns.
Gill and Bruce were extremely helpful offering good recommendations for activities and restaurants in the area where each meal was delicious. They also recommended Zoomarine where we enjoyed the most unique experience of swimming with dolphins. A memory my daughter will always treasure!
A wonderful Location, charming Lodge and genuine hosts made this holiday Perfection in one place! We are already looking forward to returning to The Lodge MM.

“Another great holiday”
Reviewed 20 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

It's hard to add much to last year's review. We had another lovely, relaxing stay and ended up going back to most of same beaches as last year. Our son was a little braver in the water this year so bodyboarding at Molhe was fun. It's a bit further to drive than the local beaches but the water is shallower. The large, new Apolonia supermarket is on the way which is very convenient.

We tried the Slide and Splash water park this year. As it was out of season there were no queues. It's worth borrowing the beach parasol from the Lodge as there's very little shade from the sun in the grassy resting area. The website had a greatly reduced family ticket for two adults and one child which should suit a lot of people who stay at the Lodge.

Gill and Bruce recommended that we tried the Sul Mar at the back of Benagil and we had some nice sea bass and a tasty cod and prawn stew.
