The perfect villa for a large family holiday
What a fabulous holiday! The villa was beautiful. The outside space was ideal for our large family both during the day and the evenings, we ended up venturing out only occasionally. The rest of the time enjoying the well thought out outdoor space - lounging by the pools and in the evening enjoying the bbq and eating areas, with the table tennis and pool tables on hand to amuse some of the children. Jane and Steve were wonderful hosts - available to help if needed, completely left alone if not. Thank you for a very fun and memorable week!
Glad to hear you all enjoyed your holiday it was a pleasure
We hope to see you sometime in the near future, enjoy the rest of the English summer

Family stay in Portugal
12 of us stayed in this property for a week, including 3 generations and 5 kids. We had an awesome time. The property is brilliant, with a lovely pool, a smaller one for relaxing in, and a bar, terrace dining and BBQ. It was a short ride to the beach, and a walk to Aqualand. The holiday was perfect, and Steve and Janie were perfect hosts.
Thank you for your 5 star review it was lovely to meet your family and lovely friends.
Glad you enjoyed your holiday and it would be nice to see you in the near future.
All the very best
Steve & Janie
Love Portugal and love this villa.
Over the years have watched this villa evolve . Every time I have returned some thing new has been added or upgraded. A car is advisable because there are so many places to visit around the area. The owners are really helpful and know the area very well.
Thank you Paul,
See you soon in Portugal

We initially chose this property because of the amazing reviews and they were all spot on. The property is in a lovely condition and the outside is especially good. Which is important as most of the time is spent outside. Steve and Janie were terrific hosts. They responded to any questions immediately but did not impose at all. The taxi recommended was excellent and always reliable. We appreciated the twice weekly clean so were always comfortable. We would definitely recommend this property.
Thank you for your kind words, for me and Janie it is always great to here what you think of your holiday .
Hope to see you again

We attended the Villa for a 50th wedding Anniversary and the villa was totally suitable for our large family .
The Villa had everything we needed and was fabulous to entertain with many areas for every one to enjoy with the swimming pools entertaining all.
The owners could not be more helpful arranging recommendations for chefs although booked we used the chef recommended from them Reberto and partner The chef Affairs who supplied an excellent menu for the evening they came in catered and left with no hassle what so ever and left us celebrating with nothing to do apart from enjoying the evening and were reasonably priced (highly recommend )
Steve and his lovely wife (owners ) assisted in arranging a cake to be made locally which was excellent and offered to pick us up from supermarket on first day when we landed .
We would recommend a car if you have hot days like we did although only a 20 min walk into the town by beach however we used the recommended airport transfer company Prestige Cars who where excellent and we used them all week it was great as the family run company could not be more helpful and assist us with our every need HIGHLY RECOMMEND THEM .
Fabulous time Thank you x
Very spacious gorgeous villa
Perfect villa for family holiday, 13 people in total. Lots of space in the garden around the pool to relax. A warm welcome from Janie and Steve who were on hand to help out with anything we needed. They even organised a birthday cake for us! Excellent taxi service was also on hand at all times to take us into the town and to and from the airport. Bedrooms were lovely and immaculate with great space. Every single family member was delighted with this gem of a place.
Top of the morning to you, it sounds better as I write it.
Thank you for your stay with us and your kind words, you have such a lovely family it was a pleasure having you.
Hope to see you again
Steve & my beautiful wife Janie
