The pool has no overlooking villas and is located at the front of our main bungalow house, and guests always have own separate easy access. Please note it is NOT A SHARED POOL at all, as the owners are a long-retired couple with a lifetime under an African sun and never use the pool.

An ensuite bathroom with shower, basin, toilet and crisp sundried cotton towels.

CHANGE OVER DAY The preferred changeover is Saturday, but we are flexible wherever dates fit in reasonably with other bookings. For cleaning please vacate by 10am on departure. Occupation on arrival is 2pm, however, whenever possible we gladly adjust for differing flights times. OUTSIDE The property is on 3800sq meters of elevated private rural land overlooking some scattered villas below, it is securely fenced-in with an automated entrance gate and driveway to a safe undercover shared carport, mature garden with grass lawns and cool tall palm trees. The pool in front of the main house is 'L' shaped 24mts square area, ranges from 1.2 to 1.9m deep. The Cottage hasa own separate garden with adjacent gazebo for alfresco dining and own floodlit Boule court and 2 own barbecue areas. A new separate elevated panoramic upper sundeck terrace, very private for a sizzling total tan with handy cool-off shower.

We looked for a quiet get-away for some winter sun. A big bonus was the welcome and hospitality of the hosts, Karl and Daph. Everything we needed (and more) was available and one week was far too short. We have already booked again.

About the neighbourhood
The nearest airport of Faro is only 20 minutes away and is served by many budget airlines such as EasyJet, Ryanair, Jet2, Airberlin etc. At times some national airlines also offer direct flights in to Faro. The alternative Portuguese airport of Lisbon is only 3hrs drive and Seville airport in Spain is only 2 hours away. Some guests take a leisurely drive to the Algarve which in itself is a lovely scenic trip with interesting stop overs along the way
Getting around
To fully appreciate the area a car is essential
