This really is a delightful rental. Myself and my husband stayed for 12 nights and we had a fab time. It is perfectly located just a short drive from the small village of Santa Barbara de Nexe and only 10/15 minutes or so away from both Loule or Faro. Having been to the Algarve a few times we were keen to explore the eastern side and this was the perfect base. We ventured out daily and discovered some great "untouristy" spots.
As previous reviews have stated it was lovely to return to the villa to chill out. The pool and outside area offer lots of space and we couldn't have asked for more. We made good use of both the outside barbecue and fully equipped kitchen to cook up some delights to enjoy on the terrace in the evenings.
Jan is the perfect host. Great communication from the initial contact to our arrival and throughout. The villa is attached to her property however she is in no way invasive. In fact we found it quite reassuring that she was nearby. We spotted a leak in a pipe to the poolside shower pipe one afternoon and on telling her a plumber arrived within an hour and fixed it!
If you're looking for a relaxing base away from the tourist mayhem and offering a real taste of the eastern Algarve then this rental is perfect. We will definitely be back. Thanks Jan x …
