“Perfect Again !”Reviewed 14 July 2013

We have just returned from our second visit to Yavanna. Returning this year after a very very good experience in 2012. We thought it would be hard to repeat a fantastic holiday but we were wrong. fantastic pool gardens and accommodation with the very highest of standards. need a car for this location as it is 15min drive to shops and 30mins to beaches. We stayed in Casa Gabriel both years and highly recommend it. it may not suit families with very young children as all doors open to directly to the outside.

Final word –

Would have rated this 6 stars if there's was an option.

“such a hidden gem”
Reviewed 14 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Yavanna is a perfect place to escape, relax and recharge.
a truly unspoilt part of Portugal and so fun to pop in to Spain for tapas!
Eunice is the perfect hostess and makes her home welcome to all.
wonderful facilities, table tennis, bbq, a beautiful pool and herbs to pick for supper.
