What a fab place to stay a real home from home. The villa is situated in a quiet rural area. but not far from local beaches, shops, supermarkets, Olhao - with it's very colourful fish and produce markets, and Tavira too. Local seafood restaurant Os Fialhos - not to be missed, a 5 minute drive or an easy 30 minute stroll away from the villa, good idea to book in advance ! The villa is very spacious, inside and out, and beautifully furnished. it is very well maintained by the very friendly owners. Upon arrival we received home-made preserves and banana muffins, which were delicious and a nice personal touch. The villa was very comfortable and well equipped and exceptionally clean. We received a full clean and linen change after the first week and the owners regularly cleaned and inspected the pool. We spent a lot of time relaxing by the pool and eating outdoors. We enjoyed shopping at the local market, buying fish to cook on the BBQ too. Local wine was most enjoyable and reasonably priced too. Would certainly book this villa again.
