"Tranquil escape in a welcolming villa, home from home."
Discovered it on on Mon 29th July booked it and was there on holiday on Friday 2nd August. Communication from the outset was superb.
Villa was as advertised with everything you need. There was plenty of room for the 4 of us with our son sleeping on the double sofa bed upstairs leaving a single bed spare in the twin room. Car is necessary to stock up at the various supermarkets or go to the restaurants but as soon as you drive through the gate you are in your undisturbed haven. You can chill at the front of the house, in the covered area at the rear, round the pool, on the upstairs veranda or away from everybody in the hammock in the extended garden. The bikes available were a bonus to explore locally. With the brilliant sunshine it was just great to light up the BBQ with the local produce available. TV has limited English channels as advertised but we had taken our own DVD's to watch.The wifi available plugs into a laptop and smart devices can be powered up at the local restaurants. The pool was beautiful and maintained regularly even though we were never up early enough to see him. There is ample bedding, towels and a washing machine if you wish to change them all daily. The oven is small but adequate with a microwave, hob and BBQ, large fridge freezer with ice packs for your days out. We absolutely loved our time there and would go back tomorrow as it had everything that we required for our relaxing holiday.
I feel the photographs don't actually give the villa and its grounds a full reflection on how nice everything is. Isabel and Helena were always available to assist if required and Maria was on hand when we couldn't locate the Wifi connector.
Thank you so much for your review, was a pleasure communicating with you, I am always on alert to the needs of the villa and always trying to improve it. Again, thank you for your great review.....

"SOCIALIZING BETWEEN THE GREEN AND TRANQUILITY"
SOCIALIZING BETWEEN THE GREEN AND TRANQUILITY
Casa dos Avós is located in the hills where you can enjoy a fantastic landscape associated with tranquility far away from tourist centers. It is a pleasant stay for relaxation and socializing in a familiar environment. I loved the house with its excellent comfort, the swimming pool is fantastic as well as the surroundings. I emphasize the comfort of the facilities, cleanliness and friendliness of the reception given by Mrs. Isabel. Although the stay wasn't long, it was excellent and invigorating.
Thank you so much Mimosa...Review was appreciated, so happy you had a good time in my villa, hope you return again someday....

We had a wonderful time, very relaxing and quiet area. The house was nice and clean, included everything we needed. We had really wonderful days by the nice pool.
Isabell and her husband was very helpful. After "the broken chair incident" they delivered two new, really good chairs, early in the morning. Not so close to a restaurant as we thought but the grill was effectiv, we used it often and made some great steaks on it. .
We will for sure recommend this house to our friends if they plan to visit Algarve.
Thank you for your review....I know that Isabel and her husband are very helpful and when anything is needed that do their best to help....
happy you had a great vacation....

"Wonderful Peaceful Rural Retreat"
This was our third trip to Eastern Algarve and we found everything as described. It was a lovely relaxing holiday with fantastic accommodation. We had everything we could have asked for. The pool was wonderful and the local restaurants warm and inviting. We also had great fun with the barbeque having been to the fish market at Olhao and purchased many strange and wonderful varieties of fish. A car is essential on this holiday and the coast only half an hour's ride away so you can be as relaxed or as busy as you wish. All in all a great holiday and we will return one day soon we hope. Thanks again Maria .
I love reviews like this, it is my pleasure to ensure that the guests have everything need for a good gateway. Having a fantastic accommodation is my goal.
