We had a most fantastic time at Casa Massai Mara. Gill & Bruce Craigie were the prefect hosts and did everything within their power to make sure we were comfortable and we most certainly were!
The villa itself is kitted out to a very high standard and beautifully decorated and the surrounding gardens are really lovely. We had unlimited access to the pool which we all loved - expecially the children. The pool is heated too which is an extra bonus! We usually go nuts on holiday and try to do too much however this year we were on a mission to completely relax. We achieved this and it was easy to do in such comfortable surroundings - I only wish I was back sitting on the terrace with my book and a glass of wine looking towards the sea!
There are 4 great small beaches very near by, Benagil (our favourite), Marinha, Albandeira and Carvelho. We also visited the West Coast and found a beach where all the surfers go to called Carmanjero. It is worth a visit and has a lovely little restaurant where they sell wonderful fish soup.
I would also recommend the boat trip from Benagil beach to see the caves. We did the half hour trip which was probably enough but the scenery was stunning. We landed back on the beach in the style of James Bond which was a bit if a highlight!
If you are even slightly tempted to head to Massai Mara, don't think twice. I can guarantee you will not regret your decision!
