"Beautiful cottage and perfect holiday..."
We had a wonderful stay at Casa da Rocha. The owners, Judi and Richard, were lovely and very helpful right from booking. They sent us excellent directions and were so friendly. They met us on arrival at the cottage and showed us round, the fridge was stocked with wine, beer and water and Judi had even left us a loaf of fresh bread and home made lemon slices!
The cottage it's self is spacious and furnished to a high standard, there was more than enough space for us as a couple and could very comfortably accommodate a small family if desired. We loved having the hot tub in the back garden and didn't miss not having a swimming pool as there is so much to discover in the local area that we were only home in the evenings when it was perfect to have the hot tube to relax in!
The cottage is located in Nave das Sobreiras a very small village of around eight houses. This setting is incredibly quiet and relaxing, however is very conveniently located . We were also left an excellent guide to the local area with some great tips for local restaurants, which we made great use of! A trip to the chicken place in Salir and Hamburgo in Benafim are a particular must.
We had a lovely stay at Casa da Rocha and couldn't recommend the cottage and the owners highly enough. Thank you for a wonderful holiday!

"Beautiful traditional farmhouse set in a tranquil village with easy access to explore the beauty of the Algarve."
- Great location - in a small village in the countryside, central enough to drive to all areas of the Algarve in about an hour (we were able to explore the western point at Sagres on one day and towns on the Spanish border the next). -Welcome pack was good - freshly baked bread, cold local beer and wine, sandwich meat, amazing lemon tart slices, eggs, butter etc. Great way to start our holiday.
