My mom and I stayed here for just a couple nights, and absolutely loved it! it was a perfect getaway to get some sun. If we come back, we will definitely stay with João. He is so helpful and kind. He's very easy to talk to and made us feel right at home. Highly recommend this accommodation!!
The pictures do not lie. A great pool and the top floor of this owner-occupied villa make this a great place to relax. A roomy place for a couple, this well-equipped apartment had everything - lots of dishes, cutlery, pots, blankets, games, TV, radio and CD player and beach toys and umbrella. There is a balcony on one side with a hammock and washing machine and a large terrace with BBQ on the other for great views and to follow the sun or shade of the day as you wish. The house is located in a suburb of Faro so is a 20 minute walk to the nearby village shops or a 10 min bicycle ride with the supplied bikes. A car is useful if you plan to explore more of the Algarve but Joao B. was very generous with his time and driving us. His wife Theresa is a great cook and welcomed us with an apple cake. I was able to get her tuna pie recipe. Both speak several languages which made us unilingual Cdns feel inadequate. Joao also likes to converse and taught us a lot about Portugese culture. Thanks for the wonderful holiday.
