Great villa, highly recommended! We chose the villa based on the good feedback from previous holiday makers, the range of facilities offered and the fact that Dawn was clearly a responsible and supportive owner. We were not disappointed. We were a party of 9, comprising 6 adults and 3 young children. The accommodation suited us well, being spacious and with...

Additional Rate and Availability Information
A 'Welcome Pack' containing some goodies to get you started when you arrive with us includes drinks and snacks and is provided to all of our guests.

We charge £250.00 with all our bookings as a security/damage/cleaning deposit. This is refunded to your bank account within 14 days after your checking out date. This deposit covers any damage caused during your stay or additional cleaning that maybe required should you not leave the villa in an acceptable condition upon departure. So far we have returned everyones deposits with no problem at all as everyone has looked after the villa for us, so that makes us all happy.

The price does not include the air con system (hot and cold system), which we charge £50.00 a week based on what we consider to be adequate normal use to help cover the additional electricity costs as electric in Portugal is very expensive.. If you need aircon please let us know at the time of your enquiry or when you arrive on the first day. We have air condition...

About the neighbourhood
Within five minutes drive in the car, you can be at restaurants in Castro Marim, Praia Verde, Altura. Within 10 minutes drive you can be at restaurants in Monte Gordo, Manta Rota, Villa Real St Antonio.

There are loads and loads of good restaurants and bars in all of these places and in the summer there is a really good atmosphere.

If you are looking for loads of English bars and union jacks everywhere, then this area is not for you for sure. Saying that everyone speaks English and you will have no problems ordering anything you want.

The restaurants are all very good value for money and on the whole I would say much better value than the other end of the Algarve or Costa del Sol that is aiming for the Brits.

We have a info folder which contains all of the restaurants that we l...
Getting around
Local taxis are very cheap and the drivers speak english do there is no problem. The train station is 5 mins by car or a 40 min walk, you can travel along the local coastal areas for a very reasonable cost and there's loads to experience.
