“A perfect piece of paradise x”
Reviewed 1 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

This was our second visit to the villa and it was amazing again! It is so spacious and just perfect. We hired a car through Amoita which we picked up from the airport and the villa is the perfect base for exploring. We went to Monte Gordo, Armona Island, Alte and of course Sao Bras. Lazing by the pool in August was amazing and snoozing in the hammock at the tree house was awesome. Everything about the villa is outstanding and having a bar right across the road and a restaurant just down the road is quite frankly paradise. Thank you so much Jean and we will definitely be back x

“A wonderful chilled out holiday in a fabulous property”
Reviewed 27 July 2016 for a stay in March 2016

This property has a large pool, an orchard and flower gardens and the villa itself is very comfortable. There are good restaurants nearby and the local bar is authentically Portuguese. We used the villa to explore the region and it is well placed for that. We also spent an enjoyable day in the local town of San Bras (about a mile away) and did a fine walking from there.
However, it is the friendliness of everyone we met that made the holiday extra special.

A real gem and can't recommend it highly enough.

“Spacious comfortable Villa with outstanding pool in a lovely location”
Reviewed 18 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Three of us stayed at this villa for a long weekend at the beginning of March. The villa is extremely comfortable, very well equipped and spacious both inside and outside with a high point being the pool and surrounding area - its truely beautiful. Jean is very caring of her guests and makes sure you are really comfortable with more than enough for your evening and breakfast (very handy if you are quite late arriving from the airport) plus lots of other extras in the house to make your stay easy. The villa is simple to find and Jean provides great instructions and overview of the area – Nuno’s bar over the road is well worth visiting several times and Nuno is a star and true gentleman. He rustled up a great lunch with no notice including some lovely oranges from his Mums garden. There are several restaurants within walking distance if you don’t feel like cooking in the well-equipped kitchen or on the barbeque outside - and many more a short taxi or car ride away. Hiring a car is definitely an advantage so you can explore this lovely part of the Algarve and there is enclosed parking at the villa which makes things very easy if you have smaller children. We really enjoyed staying here and would highly recommend it.

Liked best: The outside space and pool - though the lounge is also very comfortable.
Liked least: Cool Algarve evenings in March - though Jean has heaters and a lovey fire in the lounge.

“Great place to relax or explore the Algave”
Reviewed 4 November 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Arriving in Tavira by bus from Spain, we were warmly greeted by Jean, who drove us around the beautiful seaside town and then took us to her lovely villa in a quiet and relaxed country village yet, just 19km from the busy Algarve Coast. The villa and its grounds were spacious, very comfortable and very peaceful. We especially enjoyed many relaxing hours in and by the fabulous pool, dined alfresco many mornings and nights on the side terrace or by the pool and explored the area in every direction. The gorgeous little white villages in the mountains were a short drive away, and the coast was another short drive where Tavira Island was a delightful surprise as were the many towns along the Algarve Coast. The inland towns of Sao Bras, Loule, Faro and Silves to name just a few were also a delight to visit.
A special treat was dining at the Estoi Palace Hotel one night after wandering around the beautiful hotel and its gardens. We also enjoyed spending time with Nuno in his bar across the road and appreciated the help he gave us in planning the rest of our time in Portugal.
In order to fully appreciate this lovely slice of the real Portugal a car would be a definite advantage in order to discover and appreciate all that there is to see.
