A wonderful place with all convenience you could expect, far enough away from the coastline to let you find peace and this in an luxurious atmosphere. Ideal base to discover the surrounding area or simply relax in the garden at the magnificent pool. Great restaurents in close distance and shops that can provide one with all you need.
The villa is perfectly located and well equiped. Close to the airport and to different beaches but away from crowded and noisy places.
Nuno, the neighbour speaks excellent English and is very helpful if you need help.
We liked the combination of visiting villages, cities and beaches and relaxing on the pool.
The restaurants offer excellent food for moderate prices.
5 days were definitely too short so I'll be back!
The villa is beautiful and also the pool is amazing. We hired a car and we arrived the beach und the most interresting cities only by 25 min. Opposite there is a bar which is very cool. And also a restaurant which offers "steak on stone". Jean is very friendly and you will love her house. We will come again...
From my first communication with Jean I knew that our stay in the villa would be fantastic and it exceeded our expectations. Jean gave us so much information on the villa, Sao Bras and surrounding area that planning our stay was effortless.
Jean met us at the villa and gave us a detailed tour. She left us a welcome pack of wine, beer, orange juice, water, biscuits, butter and fresh fruit.
The villa itself is wonderful with so much space. The hammocks in the orchard are awesome and the stone seating areas were perfect for a morning meditation.
The pool was cold, but that did not deter us and once in we did not want to get out!
Nuno was very friendly and helpful, Sao Bras was great and we had freshly squeezes orange juice at Cafe Regional - again very friendly.
We visited Alte as recommended by Jean and my teenage children spent ages exploring the area. They particularly liked the fabulous views on the way up - we stopped several times to take photos!
We hired a car through Amoita which we picked up at the airport and went west to Zoomarine and east to Monte Gordo - both places that are a must to do on your holiday. We swam with dolphins at Zoomarine and relaxed on a superb beach at Monte Gordo. Both are very easy to get to.
I am determined to save enough to visit in August when different fruits will be on the trees in the orchard.
I recommend this villa with out any reservations. You MUST stay here.
