"Beautiful, tranquil and marvellous!"
A beautiful villa and much bigger than it looks in the photos! Quiet and peaceful location, perfect for a relaxing stay. The villa and gardens were very well maintained and to a very high standard - the villa itself had everything you could possibly wish for a comfortable stay and even had mountain bikes should you wish to be adventurous and explore the stunning surrounding countryside. The pool was spotlessly clean and was fabulous; totally unoverlooked.
The villa has extremely high ceilings and is lovely and cool even without using the air conditioning, a welcome relief after a hot afternoon at the local beach or pool.
The villa is about 30 minutes drive from the airport at Faro and the trip was straight forward. Loule is about 10 minutes drive from the villa and has a lovely undercover market ,numerous little shops and restaurants and a couple of decent supermarkets. In the other direction from the villa is a little village up in the mountains called Querenca - very pretty and has a few places to eat - highly recommended.
The owners of the villa, Mariela and Elenar were extremely helpful and made us feel very welcome. Mariela met us from the airport and showed us where the supermarket in Loule and various points of interest were. The welcome pack of milk, wine and selection of goodies was very much appreciated.
Lots of nice places to visit within a short drive of the villa - Faro old town is quite interesting and the beach at Quinta do Lago is stunning!
If you like a pretty place to stay, with stunning views, tranquility and excellent service than this is certainly the holiday for you; would we come back? Like a shot!

"Words cannot describe how quiet it is in Villa Romao"
Mariella and Helena did welcome us at the airport. From there they made a quick tour through Loule to point us to the most interesting places and showed us where the supermarket was before going with us to the house.
The house exceeded by far all our expectations. Pictures on the site do not show how beautiful and quiet the house is.
We enjoyed every minute from our stay.

"Away from it all tranquility"
We had the last week in October in this lovely traditional Portuguese Quinta . It is very rural and peaceful, a real away from it all location we were completely undisturbed. The owners were very helpful and me us from the airport to take us to our Villa. They had thought of everything to make our stay comfortable. The accommodation is traditional with all basic needs catered for and lots of space - A car is essential as the location is remote . There are some lovely walks in the surrounding hills. The pool is gated and inviting although it isn't heated and at this time of year was extremely chilly it the view from the terrace us amazing .
