What our Guests said:
'We had a fantastic holiday at your villa. We would definitely recommend it if someone wanted a holiday with a great pool, a fantastic view and far enough from the hustle and bustle of busy towns (though not too far). Very chilled, very relaxing. E&S Morris, Cardiff, Wales'

About the neighbourhood
The property is ideally located and is within easy reach of all the main tourist attractions in the Algarve - including some of the best beaches. The water parks are very popular – (all inside 1 hour travel). Aquashow Park Hotel – 15 minutes away – is highly recommended. There are local supermarkets in Santa Barbara de Nexe and Loule and it is less that 15 minutes to the Faro Forum shopping complex, and the IKEA Designer Outlet Centre. Algarve Shopping Centre is 25 minutes away. There are daily markets in Sao Bras and Olhao and a monthly market in Estoi. Estoi is also famous for the ruins of a Roman villa. The Children will love Zoomarine (40 minutes drive) while in the East, Tavira is a lovely historic town with many attractions.
Getting around
Because we are in quiet location a car is essential if you are to get the most out of your stay. We are within easy access of the A22 motorway, which means that you can visit any point on the Algarve by day - or night. Alternatively, if you don't want to drive to dinner there are a number of local taxi firms who know where our small community is and will be able to pick you up and transport you to your Restaurant. There are two buses each way each day into Faro, via Santa Barbara de Nexe.

How to get there
Airport: Faro: 7.0 km
Railway: Faro: 7.0 km
The easiest way to get to the Algarve is to fly into FARO airport. A number of budget and scheduled airlines fly in directly from both the UK and Europe (including RyanAir, Easyjet, Jet2 and BA). There are a large number of hire car companies at the airport, but it is advisable to book your hire car beforehand in the summer as availability can sometimes be limited. Our villa is less than a 15 minute drive from the airport.
