Hi, we are Jean and John Davis, we bought this villa, new, in 2002, I guess we were smitten with the cute little Portuguese village. We often see the shepherd walking his sheep down the lane to graze, or the locals that live off the land and pick their olives in October. They grow their own oranges, pluck their chickens and bake their own bread, some still trot around on their donkeys, no jumping in the car to the local supermarket for a bottle of wine for them! (Yes, they grow the grapes too!) The Algarvians are friendly and have a relaxed attitude to visitors. Fishermen paint their boats in colours as bright as the spring flowers on the cliffs. Two donkey carts cause a 'traffic jam'. At this pace of life even the most stressed businessman soon unwinds.
Golf: If its golf you love, you'll be spoilt for choice! This is Europe's foremost golfing destination where you will find in excess of 20 golf courses along the Algarve. The nearest ones being here in Silves, plus Val do Pinta and Gramacho. Pestana at Carvoeiro (international course) Pinta an 18 hole course and Vale de Milho's 9 hole course. Golf of Morgado a championship golf course which lies on the lower slopes of the Monchique Mountains.Or take a safari jeep trip and visit the typically Portuguese villages where the old Portuguese still make lace table mats and travel by donkey.
