“A taste of the real Algarve”
Reviewed 13 September 2011 for a stay in August 2011

We were a group of 10 adults sharing the two villas which are semi-detached and set in a peaceful rural location down a fairly rough track. Very spacious and well appointed accomodation with large gardens and a good sized pool. Car hire is essential. The village is a ten minute walk with two well stocked shops. The local restaurant at the village bar serves a hearty meal at very reasonable prices. Nearest supermarket is a 10 minute drive to Tavira. The very helpful and knowledgeable owner lives next door.
We all had a very pleasant and relaxing week at this property.

“Great quiet countryside location 10 minutes from Tavira”
Reviewed 27 June 2011 for a stay in June 2011

Stayed twice at this villa June 2010 & June 2011. Great place if you are looking for a quiet location. Lots of room with the two self-contained attached units. We rented both units taking our married son and daughter plus two grandchildren and longtime friend. Shaded garden with ‘hidden’ quiet spots to get a moments peace. Outside BBQ area with large parasol table. Roof terrace offers 360 degree views of area. Must have car for this location. Taveria about 10-15 minutes’ drive with very good supermarket. Faro airport 30 – 40 minutes away. Recommend going to the local restaurants in the mountains off the tourist trail. Pay local rates for very good food and drink. Highly recommend for family location.

“superb properties with amazing views amongst real portugal”
Reviewed 27 May 2011 for a stay in May 2011

We have stayed several times and enjoy the seclusion, the fantastic views especially from the roof terrace and the lovely garden. Great location for easy access to Tavira, the motorway and Olhao (fantastic market Saturday morning). Really good location for the Ria Formosa and the beach at Barril with its little railway. Local village has everything you need, cheap bar, good restaurant (try the BBQ chicken), cafe, a couple of mini-marts and a smart little church. The area really is proper Algarve landscape with orange groves and undeveloped countryside. Lots of bird life in the garden. House has everything you need and plenty of space with UK tv. Patrick and his Mum will cater for everything you need - take you to the bar, restaurant directions and even Portuguese lessons.

We stayed for two weeks in March 2011 with friends joining us for the second week, We were all impressed with every aspect of the beautiful villa. The setting is magnificent, the views are panoramic and we were extremely comfortable staying there. As the weather was kind to us we made full use of the large permanent barbeque and the swimming pool.
To sum up a wonderful holiday and we are making plans to return. Thank you Patrick and Elizabeth. This is our second visit as we stayed at the large villa in 2010.
