“Wonderful villa - second to none”
Reviewed 12 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

person found this review helpful

The villa is set in a peaceful location yet only 5/10 minutes drive to beaches supermarkets restaurants etc. The villa is spotlessly clean with lots of little touches to give it that homely feel lots of clean towels and even shopping bags to take to the supermarket. Wifi was excellent and there is lots of info about places to visit in a file in the villa. Gill and Bruce are excellent hosts on hand to suggest restaurants and beaches nearby . The outside terrace and garden are lovely as is the pool to cool down after sunbathing on the comfortable loungers. We smiled every morning after our visit from Flute Truffles and Bobby never have we seen such well behaved dogs. We would highly recommend a stay in this villa it really is the most relaxing way to spend a holiday.

“Quiet, Peaceful, Place to stay.”

We spent a blissful three weeks at this property and felt completely at home. The owners are lovely people as are their three adorable dogs!

The property is spotlessly clean, with comfortable beds, well kitted out with everything you can think of or need and totally private. The sun terrace is an ideal place to relax and the pool, the perfect place to cool down! It was in the high 30s for most of our holiday! It was a sanctuary from the busy towns and beaches at the end of a day out or a lovely place to spend the day if we didn't want to go anywhere.

This was our fifth holiday in this area and we still found some lovely places to explore. The owners are very knowledgeable and happy to advise and recommend walks, restaurants etc. The beaches are beautiful, though were very busy due to the time of year. Supermarkets are 5 minutes drive away.

We would highly recommend this property and hope to return for our second visit in October!

Thank you both for giving us our little piece of paradise in the beautiful Algarve!

“A truly perfect place to stay”

This was our fourth stay at The Lodge MM in Caramajeira, and was as perfect as ever. A very warm welcome from Gill and Bruce as always and the villa was as lovely as we remembered it.
It is equipped with everything you need for a wonderful stay and is furnished to a high standard. Always spotless on arrival with lovely personal touches. Although Gill and Bruce are next door, they leave you in complete privacy, but are always on hand if you need and information on restaurants, beaches etc. The villa has a lovely terrace and is surrounded by a beautiful garden full of interesting plants. Very comfortable beds, plenty of towels and extensive space for clothes. Not that we needed a lot of clothes - the temperature was in the high thirties every day!
The nearest beach is Albandeira, which was our favourite, only ten minutes away. Small, but spotless sand and lovely clear water. Being the Atlantic, there are some big waves but swimming was perfectly safe. You are spoilt for choice as there are so many wonderful beaches to choose from. We would sometimes have a swim in the pool at the villa after spending some time on the beach, in order to cool off. Gill and Bruce don't use it if visitors are having a swim, but it is not there for all day use by people staying in The Lodge, as it is in their garden.
They will recommend good restaurants in the area - our favourite is Sul Mar at the top of the hill in Benagil; lovely food. Go to Carvoeiro, ten minutes away, and eat at Pashmina, a beautiful Indian restaurant where we had the most delicious curries ever! Great service and reasonably priced. Also, a good meal can be had in A Lanterna in the Main Street in Carveiro - try the seafood rice. As a last night treat, go to O Barradas on the road to Silves. Can be a little difficult to find, but only 15 minutes drive. Amazing food and a truly wonderful setting, sitting outside under trees and flowering shrubs, still reasonably priced, which we found with most local restaurants.
For a change, drive up into the hills to Monchique. Places to eat on the way up and amazing views once you reach the top.
Well, we had another perfect week at the lodge and couldn't fault anything. Gill and Bruce were the perfect hosts, not forgetting their sweet dogs which would pay us a brief visit at breakfast time some mornings!
A stay at The Lodge is a time to be treasured, everything you could wish for and more. Thank you so much, Gill and Bruce, for such a wonderful week.

“Nice”
Reviewed 14 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017

The area is nice, accommodation is good, well equipped.
The location does not exist on the map therefore it cannot be reached without help. I strongly advice pinpointing the location on the gps once there, otherwise you will not be able to turn back.
Internet almost does not work, so be prepared to connect on your own costs.
There is no heating so I would not advise renting in cooler months.

You are so funny, sorry but it is very easy to find if you follow my directions.
The Internet is perfect, alas we had a power surge on the extender on the eve of a National Holiday, but you could have used our wi fi, but you chose not to, it was rectified by 10am the day after holiday?
We have the most wonderful heating for winter, cool months, a fabulous easy to use and efficient log burner, but you chose not to use it ? We lived there for a few months in winter over Christmas whilst renovating our house and needed to leave doors open it is so efficient.

You said you had had a lovely vacation??

“Perfect accomodation, great host!”
Reviewed 21 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We had such a great family holiday, the first one with our 11 months old baby. The accomodation was secure, clean and nice and had everything we needed. Both Gillian and Bruce were very nice and attentive. They respected our privacy and we didnt feel their presence except when we needed them. They had 3 lovely friendly dogs that our baby girl loved playing with. The pool was great too. The location is convenient and less than 10mins drive to shops and 5mins to the beach Praia da Marinha. There are other beautiful beaches nearby too.
We would definetely recommend staying at this place, its just perfect!
