The most amazing villa with an incredible host!
We had the most fabulous trip. The villa was spot on for any family and had all the amenities.
It was home from home. It was well equipped for all your needs and had a fantastic swimming pool. Big enough to fit everyone and floats! Sean was an amazing host. He Was there for you at any time to help with your stay or if you had any problems etc. It was not to far from the airport or or any attraction. Well recommended and we hope to return soon.
A beautiful villa with everything you need for a peaceful relaxing stay.
Gorgeous villa in peaceful location. The gardens surrounding the villa are really beautiful, and the villa itself is very well equipped and tastefully decorated with everything needed for a very comfortable stay.
We had a fabulous relaxing holiday and Sean the host was great really helpful.
I would have no hesitation in recommending the villa to others. It has everything needed for a lovely holiday.
Amazing villa in a peaceful location
My partner and I where looking for a villa in a quiet secluded location to enjoy a week of relaxing by the pool, and we hit the jackpot with Fig Tree House.
The Villa is large and beautifully decorated with everything you would need to make it a home away from home, it's clearly been well maintained and was clean and tidy throughout. The welcome basket of supplies upon arrival was a lovely touch.
The gardens are amazing with lots of different seating areas around the property so you can always find a quiet spot to read your book and the pool was a great size, perfect temperature and well looked after.
Sean is a fantastic host and was always on hand if we needed him, he gave us some great tips about the local area and was really accommodating of our late departure allowing us to stay in the villa until late in the day.
I would highly recommend staying at Fig Tree House and when we plan another holiday in Portugal will definitely be returning.
A fabulous, peaceful villa in a great location.
Beautiful location & fabulously furnished. Sean couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. Would recommend to anyone wanting a quiet break away.
Beautiful house in tranquil setting - wonderful!
From the moment we arrived we were warmly greeted by Sean and Douglas who instantly made us feel welcome. They gave us lots of information about the area and were always on hand throughout our stay if we needed them. They were perfect hosts.
The house was spacious, beautifully decorated and immaculately clean. It provided a good base to explore the area and also gave us a place to relax. Our children loved the huge pool and used it daily. We loved the well kept gardens where we could all sit together or spread out into the various areas and enjoy the views and of course, the amazing August weather!
There was lots to do in the area and Fig Tree House was well positioned to make the most of it. With three generations of our family to cater for, we were close to places of historic interest, water parks for the children and authentic piri- piri restaurants.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the villa had everything we needed. Sean and Douglas were thoughtful and attentive hosts. The welcome basket on arrival was a particularly generous touch.
We would absolutely recommend Fig Tree House to anyone looking for a lovely, spacious house with great views and a fantastic pool -a perfect place to explore the Algarve.
We have made some great memories at Fig Tree House; thank you Sean and Douglas.
