The Algarve region
Landscape and climate combine in the Algarve to create a region of year-round appeal. Breathtaking views, sheer cliffs, sheltered valleys with their patchwork orange and lemon groves, vine yards and olive trees or castle topped peaks. The Algarvians are most helpful and friendly, making you feel totally relaxed and welcome, the one down side of the Algarve is having to fly home!!!
We can recommend fabulous places that serve Plate of the Day Lunches 4 courses (with choices) including wine, water and coffee €8.50 a head !!

"Wonderful location and well equipped villa"
The quick review - we had a great time and would definitely return to this property.After spending years saying that we don't do beach holidays this was our second one in a year. Whilst we loved … More
OMWord this must have taken a lot of time to write, but many many thanks for taking the time. Much appreciated. Sure you understood the cover has to go on when the sun goes to bed, otherwise it would lose lots of heat, and bet you agree it is much nicer to have a heated pool than a freezing one !! I hate cold pools, we don't charge for the heating, as I feel it is heated for my occasional use and therefore would be unfair to charge our guests !! Hope to see you again, as yes there is so much to explore on the Algarve, we still haven't seen half of it yet !!!

"Wonderful - Can't fault it!"
We went with our three year old. And the location, accommodation and facilities were perfect. Also the owners were really welcoming and helpful but unobtrusive just as they suggested. Wonderful pool and lovely beaches close by. You would not be disappointed if you went to stay here.
Thank you very much for your report, was great to see the wee one learning to swim, full of confidence when he left !!

"A week in Paradise"
We have just enjoyed a truly wonderful relaxing holiday at The Lodge M.M.
It is situated in beautiful gardens with views towards the sea, a stunning setting.
The Lodge has everything you would need and more, right down to beach toys for the kids.The standard of cleanliness is second to none, the best we have ever seen in many years of villa holidays.
Gill and Bruce were excellent hosts helping out on any queries, restaurant info etc and at the same time also giving us space to enjoy our holiday. The daily visits from the dogs (Flute and Truffles) kept us all entertained.
We will be returning to The Lodge for more chill out time and if you are thinking about making a visit we cannot recommend it highly enough.
Thank you so much for your wonderful review, and will look forward to seeing you back in August !!

"Total relaxation away from the hustle and bustle"
My husband and I had ten days of total relaxation at the lodge. The owners are very friendly but leave you to get on with it but there if needed. The pool is wonderful it is heated so by mid afternoon when the sun has been shinning on it all day its like having a warm bath. Shops, beaches are all close at hand so no long drives, although we did venture to lisbourne by car and the roads were extremely quiet no hassle at all. Gillian the owner has thought of everything to make the lodge a home from home, will be returning.
Many thanks for writing your review, I remember you saying how relaxed you felt within hours of arriving!! I know from experience it can take a couple of days to settle, but hopefully (and it appears from reviews) our guests feel relaxed enough to enjoy every minute of their holidays here ! We are here if needed, but otherwise we leave our guests in peace !!

What a wonderful, tranquil haven where we relaxed instantly. Welcomed warmly and professionally by our hosts we found ourselves quickly enjoying the pool. Clean, warm and a great size for the whole family to enjoy together and set in immaculate expansive gardens. The Lodge is equipped with everything you need and everything you don't know you need for a fantastic holiday; fluffy towels, books to read, beach boards and sun parasol to take with you as you explore the fabulous local beaches. Outside your patio doors you'll find a large stone patio complete with sun loungers and a dining table so you can enjoy the warmth of the Algarve, day or night. Bruce and Gill managed to achieve a perfect balance between making us feel completely at home and looked after and being professional and respectful of our holiday space. I've never before felt so at ease on holiday and must put that down to our hosts and what they have created at the Lodge. Truly magical, thank you.
Many thanks for your kind words, kinda getting the feeling we must be doing something right!!! We enjoy seeing our guests relaxing and if needed suggesting places to eat, beaches to visit or sights you may want to see ! Thank you for your booking for next year look forward to seeing you all then !

We have just returned from 2 glorious weeks at the Lodge. It is difficult to say anything that hasn't already been said in previous reviews, only to say that if you want lovely views, peaceful location, excellent accomodation, great sun terrace, then this is the place.
We were lucky enough to find the lodge fairly last minute, and right from initial enquiries to arrival everything was perfect. I would definitely recommend, unless you want all night bars and loud music on your doorstep, then this is probably not the place for you. We came away feeling totally relaxed and will definately be going back.
Gill and Bruce are very freindly people, and I am so glad they decided to share this lovely part of Portugal
Thank you so much for taking the time to write your review of our Holiday rental villa, we are thrilled you enjoyed your holiday here on the Algarve and see you have booked to stay with us again next summer, wonderful see you then.
