"Amazing villa, amazing trip"

We spent amazing holidays in the villa. The house is well located in a small beautifull village. We'll recommend you to have dinner in the Carambar!
The region is beautifull, we found many different amazing beaches (surfers and bodyboarders will love them!).
I'll recommend anyone to rent the villa, with family or friends, which is very comfortable with its swimingpool and its big bedrooms.
Lovely place, we'll come back!

Thanks very much - I can definitely recommend visiting the local village Barao de Soa Joa its 5 mins from the Villa and has some great restaurants and bars all server great food and wines at fantastic prices

"A spacious comfortable villa with easy access to beautiful beaches"

This very comfortable villa is set in beautiful gardens with a good sized swimming pool and, although not too far from the main road, is quiet and secluded. It proved to be ideally situated for exploring the different parts of South West Algarve. This included the stunning Atlantic coastline - wild and remote - very different to the more touristy beaches around Lagos. Near the villa is the little village of Bensafrim where you can get a sense of authentic life in the Algarve. Very highly recommended.

Thank you very much for your wonderful review and very happy you enjoyed exploring the Western Algarve - this coastline is very special

"A thoroughly relaxing and beautiful setting which made for a fantastic holiday"

We spent a week at Quinta Nora and the beautiful and peaceful scenery made it a truly relaxing holiday for our family. We immediately felt at home and had all the facilities we needed to make our stay comfortable.

My children loved playing in the pool after a busy day discovering the algarve and most nights we enjoyed a bbq in the beautiful gardens. I particularly enjoyed relaxing in the gardens watching the swallows which were nested nearby and the plantlife was stunning. We also enjoyed fresh orange juice each morning , which were picked from the trees in the garden.

The accomodation was very spacious and provided everything we needed. The beds were very comfortable and my children slept through every night (which is rare!) which made it even more relaxing.

It was a short drive to Lagos which was great for shopping, sightseeing and the beaches. And we were also able to discover lots of nearby places such as Lagoa and Albufeira. Lagos Zoo was only up the road too which was great for the kids.

Overall, a thoroughly relaxing holiday which was I don't think we would have had in one of the busier locations. Many thanks for helping us have a great family holiday.

Thank you very much for your wonderful review and very happy you enjoyed your stay at the villa

Best regards

"Great stay in beautiful location!"

We had a great time during our stay at Quinta Nora. The location was very relaxing with some beautiful scenery. The local village had a nice traditional feel to it with some good places to eat and go for drinks. The nearby beaches were lovely, particularly on the Atlantic coast, although it could of been a little warmer.

The villa was very spacious with a traditional feel. Everything we needed was provided and the wood burner in the main room was fantastic. Would definitely recommend if looking for a peaceful setting close to Lagos and the beaches.

Thanks for the review - the weather in February can be a bit chilly but glad you enjoyed your stay - great to hear from you guys
