Great villa with everything you could want.
Nice villa in a convenient spot, all round great stay. The toilets are a little old and stained with rusty water marks and although clean don’t look very pleasant and could do with replacing or a deep industrial clean to remove the staining. The blue sun beds look a little tired. Apart from that we had a brilliant time and the Villa has everything you could need. Hairdryers in the bathrooms is an extra nice touch.

Perfect Family Villa & BEST Location
Right from the start communication with owner was good. I booked 9 wonderful nights in David's villa with husband & sons and had we had the most amazing time. The location made the villa so quiet tucked away in the hills. The villa itself is beautifully designed we couldn't fault it. It is so peaceful and at night we watched the planes landing and taking off from the bedroom balcony with a bottle of local wine when the children were asleep. Unforgettable! Kitchen is well equipped and there are plenty of tables and chairs to eat meals! We used the barbeque to cook local fish which was be prepared at the bigger supermarkets. Beds comfortable, everything spotless, plenty of storage. We only went out to the beach 3 times as felt very spoilt at the villa. The pool is a great size and was greatly appreciated in 38 degree heat. Would we go back? Definitely. Saving up for next year! Thanks David x

Superb quiet location with outstanding views.
We spent two weeks in this very well appointed villa in a quiet location on high ground with outstanding views over Faro to the sea a little over a mile from the centre of Santa Barbara de Nexe where we enjoyed several excellent meals at La Piazza as well as other restaurants all within a short drive and we kept fit by climbing the many steps from the pool and local walks and relaxing on the upper terrace watching the planes taking off and landing at Faro Airport. Unfortunately one of our party had a fall which curtailed some of our proposed activities. The location arrow on the website is far from the position of the villa and could be very misleading to someone not familiar with the area.

We are pleased you liked our villa and its lovely peaceful and quiet location. with outstanding views. We don't know why the location arrow was in the wrong place,but we have managed to get that corrected now. There are 8 steps to the pool from the main terrace so not too challenging. Thank you for staying with us ,kind regards David

Lovely spacious villa with splendid views.
The villa has ample sleeping accommodation for 6 people and each bedroom has it's own bath/shower room. Views all round are splendid and, although no noise can be heard, it's fascinating to watch the planes landing and taking off at Faro airport! The garden is immaculate and I loved the whiff of rosemary planted all around the front and side of the house. I would add that the location on the website map is way out! it's shown in the town centre but I is, in fact, 1.4km from the town down an unnamed. unmade-up road and there is no name or number at the villa entrance. However, with your map, we did find it! I stayed for the first week of my friends' holiday there. One of them is an elderly lady and the other is infirm so unable to negotiate the steps to the pool. Railings would have worked (as with the stairs from the upper floor) though they may have not worked aesthetically.

It is a pity we did not know the steps would be a problem,as the villa is on a hill the steps are part of the landscape.We did not know there were elderly and infirm guests in the party.As there are two en-suite bedrooms on the ground floor at least they are convenient for elderly guests. Being on a hill gives us the splendid panoramic coastal views so you can see the coast about 10 km away and the sea beyond which is where the airport landing approach takes place in the distance whilst in total silence! Not sure why the map location is in the village center we will have it corrected.The villa description does say it is about 1 km from the village. We are on a private roadway to three villas so there is no name to the road . This is the reason why the villa is so peaceful and not overlooked.

Beautiful villa
Set in a secluded location away from other properties, so all you can hear is birdsong, but still only a five minute drive into the local town. It has an immaculately kept spacious, mature garden and a large well heated pool. Fantastic views from the villa, roof terrace and shaded seating area. Inside is airy and large for a three bed villa, spotlessly clean with a modern kitchen, comfortable beds, walk in shower and fast reliable Wifi. Highly recommend this place - we regularly rent villas in the Algarve and Med, and this is one of the best we’ve been to.

Fantastic Villa in a beautiful location with amazing views
This is our second visit to this villa and we love it. I stayed with my partner and my two teenage sons so internet is a must! Hoping to be able to go back next year. If you are looking for peace and quiet away from it all this is the place to go. We have been holidaying in Portugal for the last seven years and this is our favourite villa. There is also a lovely little restaurant in the village. We would thoroughly recommend this villa.
