“Fabulous location and comfortable and lovely Casa”

We had a wonderful two weeks at Yavanna. Casa Gabriel is very comfortable, lovely beds and furnishings, fully equipped with everything you could possibly need. A fabulous location to explore both the mountains and coast and pop into Spain. There is so much to do and see, we only touched the surface in two weeks - but then we did laze around the pool and beach too. Would highly recommend Yavanna to anyone - lovely for couples but would also be great for families with Kids as the gardens and pool are great.

“Yavanna is a fantastic holiday home and Sofia and Gustaf superb hosts who ensured we had a great holiday”
Reviewed 24 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Yavanna is a top quality holiday home in a really interesting part of Portugal. The house is furnished and equipped to a really high standard. The grounds and pool were also to a great standard and provided a great environment to relax or for the kids to have fun. Lots of fruit trees to pick your own fruit.

Sofia and Gustaf provided some great advice in relation to local activities, events and places to eat - we really enjoyed White water rafting and Kayaking locally.which Sofia kindly arranged for us.

We were made really welcome and encouraged to feel at home in the grounds.

The presence of WIFI was a pleasant surprise (especially for the kids) and the fact that the best signal was outside worked well.

We would thoroughly recommend this as a place to stay - it is off the beaten track as far as UK tourists go and you get a real feel for life in Portugal / Spain
