A great place to escape after a day exploring
We very much enjoyed our stay, the house was clean and comfortable. Maria was great meeting us in town so we could follow her to the house and had a bottle of wine for us. At first we thought it was quite remote but after a few trips to town it was really not that far and there are many other homes in the area. Santa Catarina was wonderful, great restaurants and a wonderful bakery. Only 15 minutes to Alvira, it fit our needs perfectly to explore the eastern part of the Algarve. The weather was still quite hot in late September so the pool was a nice relief at the end of the day.
Thank you for your comment. I was very thankful to have met you. I hope they can come back another year. Thank you and a good year.
The Property and scenery were breathtaking.
Our stay was amazing. Maria and her husband were there to greet us our plane was delayed and we were held up at the car rental so where 3 hours late. They where wonderful and so patient. There was a lovely bottle of complimentary wine as we arrived as well.
Maria showed us how everything worked and left us to enjoy our holiday. It was fantastic, it is so quiet and picturesque. The pool was a welcome perk in the heat The village was wonderful to as where the people. There is a wonderful cafe in the village where you can buy bread and pastries and enjoy a coffee or beer. There is also a place to purchase fresh fish and produce. There is also a lidl nearby as well.
I would recommend a car as this is rural...but also wonderful.
We went to Tavira, Faro, Loule and Estoi all i highly recommend but at the end of the day loved returning to our little villa in Sant Catarina.
I cannot find words to explain how truly beautiful and welcomed the holiday was and we are looking forward to when we return next year.
Thank you Maria and your husband for a wonderful holiday experience. We miss you already. Love shelly and nicki.
You are very nice.
I'm waiting for you for 2018.
All the best to you.
Great Property in a stunning location
Maria and Pau were very kind and helpful. The house is in such a great, peaceful location, surrounded by nature and birdsong. Lots of lovely things to do in the local area too.
Hi. We also like you very much, I saw that you are very good people. I enjoyed having them in my house. Another year if you want, just contact me. Thanks for your comment on the site I thank you for your kindness. Kisses for everyone. Thank you for your contact and attention
Return to Paradise for Christmas and New Year
This is our third time to this little gem in the countryside and as always it was superb. We spent the whole of Christmas and New Year, a total of 4 weeks. Maria ordered us enough firewood for our holiday, so the cottage was nice and cosy, she even put flannelette sheets and pillow cases on the bed for extra comfort and warmth, I would strongly recommend this lovely place to anyone who wants it quiet at night but close enough to all amenities and beaches if that is your thing.... we will be back again and again
Thank you very much for the affection shown, you are very dear. Once again thank you very much.
Perfect Villa for Quiet Getaway!
Perfect for quiet getaway. Pool large enough and villa spacious. Maria very helpful, even when our flight delayed.. The villa was better than any of the photos and close enough to local amenities. Cant wait to come back!
Thank you for your comment. I was very happy to have you enjoyed that little paradise. thank you and is my compliments.
A gem in the countryside
This lovely little house is set in a valley with mother nature as your host, it is a bit of a bumpy ride up the 2km track, but that wasn't a problem and soon became part of the fun.
You wake up every morning to sound of song birds singing and got to bed with the song of the Nightingale. The house has everything you require, no matter if you cook or eat out at the little cafés in Santa Caterina and the biggest BBQ you have ever seen. The owners Maria and Paulo are the nicest people you ever wished to meet and welcome you on arrival. The property was spotlessly clean and well maintained, we will definitely be going again, loved it... Tony & Margaret Bason
