We all loved this villa!!! We stayed here as a family attending a wedding locally.
The river view and wildlife was spectacular.The villa was so well equipped, especially for our 10 month old grandaughter, with suitable toys and equipment all set out ready.We enjoyed drinking the wonderful Portuguese local wine whilst looking out at the sunset. Definitely a child friendly property. We would love to return!

Cheryl, you and your house make holidaying with a large group so easy. From booking to end of holiday was brilliant.
The grandchildren absolutely loved it and the pool was ideal.
We were sad to leave.

“Peaceful and Luxurious accomodation”
Reviewed 17 April 2015 for a stay in August 2013

The River House is a perfect location for a relaxing family holiday. We travelled with teenage children and grand-parents. The accommodation is extremely well appointed and quite luxurious, with great layout of upstairs and downstairs bedrooms. The surrounding area is just lovely with gorgeous views over the river, lovely walks and activities close by. We went quad biking which was a highlight, and ended in a swim in a cooling natural reservoir. The property is secluded and private, so a very peaceful place to relax by the pool, yet still close enough (30 mins), to the Algarve beachfront and water parks. A highly recommended holiday rental property, with very approachable and friendly owners.

“Amazing place where you relax and experience the rural Algarve”

I have fully enjoyed my stay at the River House with my friends. The house is brilliant and the setting is stunning. It is situated on a hill, overlooking the river and right on the 'Via Algarviana' (300km walking path). The infinity pool is very inviting and the terrace and decking are beautiful. This is a place to find peace, relax and spend quality time with friends or family. I am taking my parents and my kids there in October for a week long holiday. I can't wait.

“A peaceful haven in the heart of Algarve”

If your idea of a perfect holiday in Algarve is for a beautiful and tranquil retreat then look no further than The Riverhouse. Away from the over crowded beaches during the summer, the house sits in rural countryside overlooked by the River Funchal where wild flowers and orange groves bloom. A romantic getaway, an energetic countryside break, a welcome detox from modern life....the choice is yours. Enjoy.
