Importantly within 10-25 mins from the villa, to the east, there is wonderful golf courses. The championship Quinta de Cima course, Benamor, Castro Marim and also Quinta de Ria.

The new magnificent Monte Rei course is 20 + mins from the villa. Over the Spanish border 25 mins away there are a further 5 golf courses, 2 are located at Ayamonte. Just outside Moncarapacho there is a new, 9 hole par 3 course at Colina Verde, and within 4kms there is a driving range, chipping area, and putting green, superb facilities for all the family.

Very nice and clean and loads of space in all rooms. Lots of fun stuff to do with the games and pool etc. Easy instructions on wifi, air con and good book about the location.

"Photos didn't do justice to the villa"

This is a very nice villa we couldn't have asked for better. The whole family enjoyed the holiday if we came across any problems the manager came right away and thankfully fixed the problem. This is a good base for all the places we enjoyed ie Zoomarine, Aqualand, Crazy World and Algarve Shopping The area around the villa is a bit run down but it does not infringe on your enjoyment. The villa is 5 star and if I was returning to Portugal I would definitely choose this villa

"Great villa and location for a family holiday"

The villa is ideal for families. Set in a rural area, but only 20minutes from Faro and within easy reach of Moncarapacho, the larger town of Olhao and lovely beaches. The villa was spacious and clean and had everything we needed for our comfort. The heated pool was a big hit for the whole family and used constantly.The availability of wi-fi was an added bonus. There were plenty of games and activities for all ages. We hope to return in the not too distant future. Janet Wilson

"Beautiful villa and lovely holiday"

Easy to find villa about 20 mins from Faro Airport. We were extremely delighted with the full facilities that this villa has to offer in a great location close to the traditional Town of Olhao. All rooms are spacious and very comfortable and very clean. We hired a small car and easily travelled to local towns and beaches and restaurants. We would recommend this villa for a lovely peaceful and relaxing break away. Our group consisted of 7 Adults and 1 Teenager and we are looking forward to another visit sometime.

"Didn't want to leave!"

We liked this villa so much that we have booked to return in September. We love the area and this is the 3rd villa we have tried and by far the best. Very well equipped and comfortable property. Heated pool was a real bonus and we enjoyed the table tennis. It was also useful to have a helpful local manager to welcome you and check that everything was alright before you leave. Despite being in a residential area it was very quiet. Highly recommend.

"Fantastic Property, own swimming pool priceless - highly recommended"

We were made to feel very welcome from our first meeting with the villa manager & she was always available during our stay. All of our party really enjoyed our stay in this top class accommodation, which was very well equipped. Our teenage sons especially enjoyed the table tennis in the basement. The pool was fantastic with plenty of sun beds & space to enjoy the sunshine. A car is essential for shopping & eating out. We enjoyed several good meals in the resort of Olhao, about a 30 minute drive away & also in Moncarapacho just a short 10 minute drive away.
