“Great villa, great setting.”
Reviewed 23 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

My partner and I plus 2 grown up boys spent 5 days from 12 to 17 February. Very easy to get to from airport, no motorway tolls so did not need to pre-pay at Car Hire office. friendly welcome from Jean's friend Martine plus a welcome pack including wine, water, milk etc. Always a nice touch. fantastic pool and garden which we never go to use as the weather was cold, cloudy and some rain. Therefore, had to try to warm the rooms up with he portable heaters plus the log fire. There is no extra charge for electricity or logs which was a bonus. Eating out is very cheap compared to UK. Meal of the day in Graciano's, literally across the road is fantastic and lovely staff. Had the roast chicken in the chicken restaurant. Busy spot and great value. €1.20 for a beer! Supermarket 3 min drive. 45 min walk to Sao Bras.Got the bus to Faro which leaves you a 5 min walk to the old town. Not huge but ok for a day trip. Eat away from the old town which has tourist prices. We got a 4 course meal including wine for €8.50!! Just a pity about our weather.

“Conveniently located high quality family friendly villa”
Reviewed 16 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

We very much enjoyed our winter week break at this villa which we would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending to others. The spacious (both indoors and outdoors) and very well equipped villa is perfectly located for exploring so many sites of interest in the vicinity. We visited places and sites in all compass directions but never had to travel too far to find diverse activities. Indeed we will have to return in the future as we could not fit in everything we wanted to do. Jean, the owner, could not have been more helpful, both prior and during our visit and the owner of the house opposite equally made our stay more enjoyable with local knowledge, tips and assisting us with a technical problem. Would be a dream in the summer, away from the madding crowds!

Myself and my partner stayed in the gorgeous Orchard Villa for five days in October 2014.
The villa itself was spectacular; spacious and clean with a wonderful orchard and swimming pool.
The owner Jean was a delight to deal with and everything was so easy and smooth. We arrived at Faro airport and it was an easy half hour trip to the villa.
There was loads of information in the villa about local places to visit and we took a trip to the mountains as well as the coast. We walked to the nearest town and had a fantastic Portuguese meal there for a very good price! There's also a handy large supermarket nearby which we used to buy our provisions.
The villa is fully equipped with everything that you need. And there are lovely fruits from the orchard to enjoy with breakfast!
Jean's neighbour Nuno was very friendly and spoke fluent English. He was right on hand to give us access to the property and to answer any questions.
We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this holiday home very highly to everyone.

“Highly recommended!”
Reviewed 18 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

3 women out to explore this part of Portugal and also chill out - couldn't have asked for a better location: plenty of countryside around the villa, even an exquisite restaurant Lagar da Mesquita just walking distance and a friendly bar just staggering distance! With a Hire car delivered to us at the villa to explore some of the wonderful towns and villages within easy reach (very good roads) and luxurious, home-from-home accommodation to come back to for a swim in the fabulous pool and dining on the patio by the pool, or just a snooze in one of the hammocks in the orchard of fruit and nut trees, well we certainly weren't disappointed!
Would thoroughly recommend this property. Can't wait to go back to re-visit some of the great places and explore even more - and just chill, of course :-)

“A pleasent place to recover from daily troubles”
Reviewed 21 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

A wonderful place with all convenience you could expect, far enough away from the coastline to let you find peace and this in an luxurious atmosphere. Ideal base to discover the surrounding area or simply relax in the garden at the magnificent pool. Great restaurents in close distance and shops that can provide one with all you need.
