“Absolutely wonderful in every way”
Reviewed 11 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

After last year's fabulous week at Ninho do Amor, we wondered if it was really as good as we remembered. It certainly was!!! We have just spent another terrific holiday week at this wonderful wonderful countryside retreat, within striking distance of all one could wish to visit in the Algarve - we even spent a day in Spain which is a short drive away. We enjoyed a boat trip also to islands just off the coast. Most of all, we just loved the privacy of "The Nest" and the renewal of our friendship with Karl and Daphne who are simply delightful and the perfect hosts.
"The Nest" has everything a couple could need. It is very well equipped inside, and even the fridge is stocked to welcome your arrival. There is a good deal of privacy outside - at the pool and in the upper garden where a new jacuzzi has been installed since last year and which is very private, yet affords stunning views over the Algarve coastline far below. This year we even saw the pair of little owls which have this area as their territory - and bee-eaters nearer the coast.
What an absolutely wonderful time we had - thanks once again, Daphne and Karl! We just love the pair of you and look forward to future holidays with you.
We'll be back!
Iain and Traude.

A cozy tranquil retreat in a beautiful location.An ideal base to explore the surrounding area.
The owners of the property were a charming delightful couple who went out of their way to ensure we felt welcome and catered for all we could wish for and more.
We will remember them with much fondness.
Thank you Karl and Daphne.

“The best holiday we have ever had”
Reviewed 8 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Having returned from our holiday a few weeks ago and got back into the 'rat race' i thought it was time to write a review about our holiday. From start to finish i can honestly say it was a world class experience. Karl and Daphne not only greeted us, they took us out for lunch and showed us the best supermarkets, they were there if needed but kept in the background.Nothing was too much trouble, you are treated as a friend not just another punter.
The 'nest' is very well kitted out, very clean with a welcome pack that included cold beer which was very welcome in the Algarve heat.
We were so happy we booked to return while we were still on holiday there.
If you only go to Portugal once, book the 'Nest' and enjoy a fabulous holiday with world class hosts

“A relaxing break in the Eastern Algarve”
Reviewed 4 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We enjoyed a relaxing break in the Eastern Algarve. The surrounding villages offer great restaurants, lovely markets and lots to see and do. The welcome pack was a lovely touch and nothing is too much trouble for Karl and Daphne

“First Class Holiday Accommodation with the perfect hosts”
Reviewed 4 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We shall certainly return to spend another holiday here. Karl and Daphne are just delightful and made our holiday most enjoyable. The "Nest" has everything you may need and enjoys wonderful panoramic views over the Algarve while enjoying a countryside situation which is peaceful and relaxing. Only minutes from the hustle and bustle of Faro and within easy reach of the airport. The bird life is stunning with azure-winged magpies, warblers, doves, spotless starlings, hoopoe and woodpecker - and that's just in the garden of Casa Lami! This is a "must visit" location, ideal for a couple and you are assured of a warm and friendly welcome. We could not recommend this highly enough. What a great holiday we had! Thanks K & D!
