“Quiet, basic, relaxing but........”
Reviewed 19 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Ill get this out the way to start with-the owner is very honest with her description of the villa. It is a very basic, very minimal villa but still very traditional. You basically get what is described, and nothing else. You do NOT get a TV, music system, Wi-fi, Air-con, Welcome pack etc.

What you do get is a lovely small villa with a lovely clean private pool in a quiet hillside location. On arrival the villa was very clean and tidy. However over the next couple of days we discovered lots of things that were wrong, didnt work on badly maintained.

The main thing was the plumbing. The main bathroom was blocked and toilet wouldnt flush properly. When using the bath/shower, the water either wouldnt go down or come out through the bidet. The en-suite was similar though not as bad.
Doors wouldnt close, or lock properly. One of the beds legs was coming of-due to the door which wouldnt close banging against it. A fan and washing machine didnt work. Some of the outside lighting didnt work. Only 2 sunbeds, one of which was cracked and no cushions. Dirty barbeque which was unusable.

One thing i would disagree on regarding description is the "seaview" and "beach/lakeside" location. Theorectically you have a seaview, however, only on the clearest of days, and with very good eyesight could you see the sea.

A hire car is essential, as there is nowhere in walking distance. You are approx 30 mins from airport/beach, and 10 mins from supermarket. Dont get a big hire car however, as you wont get it in the driveway.

With all the things wrong with it, you may think it spoilt our holiday, however it didnt, and if all these things are repaired and sorted we would use it again as it is in a lovely quiet, private location with great views of the valley down to faro.

Disappointingly though, after telling the owner of the things mentioned (and a couple more), there was no apology, or offer of any refund.
