About David and Alex Keeble
Hello. We are David and Alex from the UK. Having travelled around Europe for a year we decided to settle here in the beautiful Algarve and as we write this it is mid January, the sky in blue and the temperature is in the high teens - what's not to like about living here! We have two dogs - Layla in the photo above and a rescue Portugeuse dog who is not normally camera shy! We live next door to the Cottage but both properties are totally discreet and private, and do not overlook each other. We are there if you want help and not if you don't - it's as simple as that. Our policy when upgrading the cottage last year was to make it the kind of place we would be more than happy to stay in - we believe we have achieved it!
David and Alex Keeble purchased this Cottage in 2015
Why David and Alex Keeble chose Laranjeira
We fell in love with this cottage when we bought it due to several factors. One is its attractive setting - every window was a great view. Situated at the end of a lane going nowhere means there is no passing traffic - although we have seen goats go past once! Despite its quiet spot we are only a few minutes from the small town of Santa Barbara de Nexe where there are shops, banks, bars, restaurants and a market and 5 minutes drive from both the main roads running along the Algarve so nothing is very far away.
What makes this Cottage unique
The cottage has a sweet garden and lots of private space for you. The lovely new pool is on the patio outside the cottage and incorporates a childrens pool. The kitchen is larger than you would expect in a property of this size and both bedrooms and bathrooms are a generous size. It was completely modernised internally and refurbished in 2016 to a very high standard. There is a log fire in the lounge for snug winter evenings. We are next door which will give you peace of mind if you do need assistance - otherwise you won't know we are there.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
The place was lovely - relaxing, peaceful, clean, with all the comforts of home. Wished it was hotter so could have taken advantage of the lovely pool. Landscaping very nice. For me, only drawback is the unpaved narrow road...made going in and out a bit tense and worrisome. Also, we had a hard time finding the place but part of that might have been on us. You should google the place/name - will come up...start your directions from there and you should be fine. We kept trying to use the ADDRESS and got lost. But once we googled we never had another issue.
Lovely cottage, adjascent to owner own home.
Beuatiful views all around. Well kept and tidy inside and outside gardens and pool. Well equipped kitchen and good sized bedrooms. Comfortable beds and nice clean linen provided. Close to a super market and petrol pump. Beautiful morning sunrise with absoluite quiet views and wonderful evenings by poolside.
Car is a must as it is in countryside. Secure parking.
We had a wonderful time and reccomend it for a quiet summer time relaxing holiday.
Wonderful relaxing Cottage
We had a wonderfully relaxing week here!!
This really is a most comfortable and quiet location, with a lovely outside pool area with plenty of varied seating and loungers. Inside is also very comfortable with all the facilities you would need (well, that we needed, anyway!).
Alex and David are wonderful hosts and provided a great welcome pack and anything we asked for....except winning lottery tickets!!
Another plus is the short distance to Faro airport and thus it's location midway between the coast and the hills - we visited both.
Thank you, David and Alex, for a lovely week and we hope to be back.
Beautiful little villa in a great location.
We had a lovely stay here. Great location, not far from the airport, close to town and close to beaches, shopping, sites etc.
Perfect size for a couple or a family of 4.
We hired a car and came and went as we pleased.
Villa was very comfortable and pool was lovely. Really nice layout.
Thanks again, we had a great stay!
Beautiful villa, beautiful setting
The villa was perfect for us and had everything we needed. The pool was lovely and clean and great for cooling off.
Location wise, the villa is very well placed for exploring the Algarve and made a good base for everywhere we wanted to go.
We would definitely return.
Had all the amenities and was in a great spot for exploring the Algarve. Beautiful garden and pool topped it all off.
