“Great quality and stylish accomodation in a peacefull setting.”
Reviewed 23 August 2011 for a stay in July 2011

The river house provides eally good quality accomodation in a remote, peacefull setting. This house has plenty of space. The living room has high ceilings, 3 sets of sofas and airconditiong. All the bedrooms have been very tasetefully designed and the bathrooms are enormous. The Kitchen is very well equipped and a great space especially if you enjoy cooking. Everything has a very new, fresh, feel and has been thoughtfully put together to create a very comfortable,stylish, home from home environment.

We went with 2 boys, 6yrs and 9 yrs and prior to going were a little concerned that they would get bored but the owners have very thoughfully provided, table tennis table, trampoline & swings for younger children. Of course the splash pool despite being small was ideal as they just spent hours jumping in and out of the water. This is a safe location for children. Cheryl the owner was extremely helpful prior to going. The owners also went out of their way to return something to us that we had left behind at the property. You genuinely get the impression that they want all their visitors to have a nice time.

Hiring a car is essential and we used a local company who rented a car through Visa which was very effiecient as they brought the car to the airport for us so we avoided all the car hire queues. Luis --. The property is about 10 minutes away from the nearest little town with a small supermarket by British standards, so there is a limited selection of food items but there are plenty of bigger supermarkets in the Algarve.

We really enjoyed our 10 days at the River House and would definitely recommend it to friends and family.

Thank you for a lovely holiday.

“Luxury in a beautiful, quiet and natural setting and with a lovely view!”
Reviewed 13 July 2011 for a stay in June 2011

We had a really wonderful holiday in the River House. The house was lovely and nothing was missing. We enjoyed the lovely surroundings of the house and bathed in the sun and pool, from where we could follow the fishermen on, and under, the bridge. The horses with riders crossing the river and the local goat shepherd, sometimes, walking close by the house with all of his goats, to get to the riverside for green grass and water. We enjoyed a few walks and cycling in the area and nature reserve. We gathered all our drinking water from Fonte Pequena (Little Spring) and enjoyed swimming in the cold water in Fonte Grande (Big Spring) both in Alte. We found a peaceful spot on the amazing beach not far from Praia da Rocha where we unfortunately only went once. Other interesting places we visited were beautiful Monchique and Silves.

“Sun, tranquillity and great beds and a nicer home than home!”
Reviewed 20 June 2011 for a stay in July 2010

The owner Cheryl was extremely helpful providing maps and details of local restaurants and activities before we left so we had no need to do any of our own research!. A car is a must and was cheap to hire at the airport. We easily found the River House and were pleased to say it is very clean, maintained to a high standard and attractively modernly decorated. It has a large kitchen and was superbly appointed for all our self catering needs. It really feels like a home away from home with fantastic pillows and beds. It is such a spacious, large property that the 4 adults could all find a shady spot in private for mid afternoon snoozes in peace when needed or enjoy the pool and villa together without being on top of each other. We enjoyed easy day trips to the beaches in the Algarve and Silves using the picnic items thoughtfully provided at the villa, whilst benefiting from the serenity, peacefulness and quiet of the rural mountain setting. We enjoyed the ability to be a group on our own and to go out and about when we wanted more entertainment. Now all relaxed and bronzed and we plan to come again!.
