What our Guests said:

Aug 12: We had a fantastic holiday at your villa. We would definitely recommend it if someone wanted a holiday with a great pool, a fantastic view and far enough from the hustle and bustle of busy towns (though not too far). Very chilled, very relaxing. E&S Morris, Cardiff, Wales.

Jul 12: Fantastic Villa, great location, and a very homely feel. The villa had far better equipment and facilities than other villas we have stayed at. Will definitely be looking to stay here again in the future. P Kielty, London.

Jun 12: We could not rate this home highly enough. It was more than we expected and the property details and photographs do not do it justice! We all felt special guests in someone's home while also having the freedom and space not to trip over each other. The villa played a major part in allowing us to have a very memorable holiday. P Munns, Oxford, England.

The Algarve region

The Algarve is an extremely popular tourist destination with a warm climate and little rain in the summer. Originally a quiet residential and farming area, with many fishing villages, the region has now been developed to cater for the tourist trade without losing much of its charm. The villa is situated centrally and is in an ideal location for all of the many attractions and to allow you to explore the whole of the Algarve.

Santa Barbara de Nexe

The property is ideally located and is within easy reach of all the main tourist attractions in the Algarve. There are local supermarkets in Sao Bras de Alportel, Santa Barbara de Nexe and Loule. It is less that 15 minutes to the Faro Forum shopping complex, which has some 80 shops, including a large "Jumbo" supermarket. The extremely popular Algarve Shopping Centre is 25 minutes away and has a wide range of shops. There are daily markets in Sao Bras de Alportel and Olhao. There is also a monthly market in Estoi. The Saturday market in Loule is not to be missed. The nearby town of Estoi is famous for the Palace do Pisconde and for the ruins of a Roman villa. For the younger family members, we are 25 minutes away from Crazy World and half an hour from Zoomarine which is a fantastic family day out. We are also only ten minutes away from Algarve Karting. Tavira, to the east, is one of the loveliest towns in Southern Portugal. It lies on both sides of the Gilao river which is crossed by a Roman bridge. There are many historic churches, a castle and a camera obscura. A wide selection of restaurants and sidewalk cafes are available. To the West, Vilamoura is some 15 minutes away and boasts a huge range of attractions. As well as the established Golf Courses, there is a wide range of cruises and trip boats with cruises lasting from a couple of hours to a whole day. A number of the cruises concentrate specifically on the sea caves which are a fantastic sight.
