“Perfect”
Reviewed 16 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

The Owners parents, (Finton and Pauline) who live close by, currently look after the property.
What a lovely couple who go out of their way to make you feel a welcome guest. Can't speak highly enough of them.
A welcome pack awaited us, which was a lot more than a couple of rolls and a pint of milk, and greatly appreciated.
The property, gardens, BBQ area and pool are very well looked after and are very clean (cleanest I have seen anywhere). Again, this is thanks to Finton and Pauline.
As you may spend a lot of time in the pool, it is worth saying that is very well designed and lovely at night with the lights on in it.
The location is quiet (next doors dogs barked for a couple of hours when we first arrived but then got used to us and we didn't hear from them again) and there is little passing traffic. A great eatery is 5min drive away, as is a small supermarket.
There were two of us, but the property could easily take four or five.
The only (minor) criticism is that we found the kitchen lights a bit dim for cooking, but once we found the local eatery, that became less of an issue (as the eatery is so good).
Villas can be a bit hit and miss, but this one fulfilled all expectations and was very comfortable.
This property cost us slightly more than what we normally pay but was money well spent, and we will be going back.

“A little gem”
Reviewed 28 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

A great property, well looked after by Pauline & Finton.
Felt at home immediately from arrival. Well equipped with all you could ask for. No problem to Pauline or Finton if you needed anything or had any queries. Felt secure with this knowledge as we had never been in Portugal before.
Fresh figs off the tree for breakfast - what more would you want?
Lovely clean swimming pool and hugh roof top terrace - perfect for sun bathing!
A quiet location, so relaxing. A small grocery closeby, larger shops 10-15 mins away in car.
Closest beach only 35 mins but close to many, many more in less than 1 hour.
Car essential but this is explained in description.
We had a great holiday . Many thanks to Dick, Pauline & Finton

“Absolute relaxation and comfort”
Reviewed 2 September 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Everything said in previous reviews is absolutely spot on. From the moment we arrived we were welcomed by Pauline and Finton who were a delight. They provided a lovely welcome pack and also a map of the local restaurants and supermarkets which was extremely helpful for our two week stay. We always stay in villas but rarely venture out on our first night until we are confident where we are going however the map gave us confidence to eat out on our first night and we only arrived at the villa early evening. They are, however, not intrusive at all - just lovely, helpful people. The villa itself is perfect. Small but perfectly formed. It is well equipped and very clean. The pictures definitely do not do it justice - especially the BBQ area which has got to take first prize of all BBQ's! Total privacy as well. The area is away from the tourist area but close enough to get to the main areas if you so wish. Because of this though, eating locally is extremely cheap. I cannot fault anything about it at all. We had a thoroughly relaxing, stress free two weeks and would not hesitate booking this villa again next time we visit the Algarve.

“Great location, comfortable, well equipped villa, nice pool and garden”
Reviewed 9 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

If you are looking for a quiet location, away from the turistic crowds, but still not too far away from all interesting places to visit, this is the place to be. We appreciated the warm welcome of Pauline and Fintan very much. This villa has got everything you need to enjoy a wonderful, relaxing, comfortable stay in the Algarve. Thanks !

This villa and the way it is managed is brilliant! It's rural position is perfect for visiting all along the coast. The villa it's self is beautiful, clean and well equipped but the best part is the personal service you receive from the owners parents who are so happy to help with anything you need to know. We were made to feel so welcome. Thank you for a fantastic week! Highly recommended!!!!

“Great holiday home in the Algarve country site”
Reviewed 29 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We spent a lovely week in Pequena Casa Quadrada. The house is very well equipped, light and modern, with a nice pool and a lovely BBQ corner. An ideal home for people looking for quiet and relaxing holidays in a beautiful rural setting.
This is also a perfect location to visit authentic country villages like Alte, Loulé, etc..., and it is only half an hour drive to the coast. Faro, Olhao and Tavira are splendid and worthwhile visiting.
We also very much appreciated the warm welcome and helpfulness of Fintan and Pauline and the tasteful food package upon arrival! The communication with Dick for the reservation was very efficient and pleasant. We highly recommend this villa.
