Great location, everything you could need in a villa. If you're thinking of playing the golf course take plenty of balls, its a bit tricky.

It is a lovely spacious villa with everything that you would need. Ian and his team were easy to deal with and very helpful. At our request, Ian happily supplied a cot and high chair. There are lots of lovely clean sandy beaches nearby which were ideal for our toddler to enjoy…

Ian is a superb host and his speedy replies to questions before our arrival was a huge help. As a result, we had a brilliant and relaxing stay in a lovely and well appointed villa. The area is quiet even in peak season, the round 'blue' pool is a 1 min walk away and a great sun…

Fantastic place! We loved staying in this apartment - it had everything you need. Lots of space, nice and quiet - yet still very close to the beaches. Can highly recommend it! Ian was great and easy to deal with.

The apartment is clean, cool and well-equipped. The location is very quiet and car is absolutely necessary to get anywhere. It was very windy when we stayed at the end of July so it was not possible to sit on the upper terrace at all during the two weeks we were there or to si…

Response from Ian:
Hi Deirdre Thanks for your thoughtful review and I take all your comments seriously - we want all our guests to have a good experience while staying at our rental homes. The quietness of the resort is a main attraction and a car is really necessary to take full advantage of the amazing local landscape - we will be reinforcing this on our airbnb adverts in the future so that this is seen as a positive rather than a negative. The wind was particularly strong during your visit which of course I cannot control but the prevailing wind is normally an attraction normally because it keeps temperatures at a very comfortable level for most guests - compared to further east along the Algarve where summer temperatures soar and the air is still. You did not report the rattling vent during your stay but we'll look at this - I'll contact you separately for more information on this. We haven't until now provided welcome packs as a matter of course but I do agree that it would be a nice touch and is something we are considering for next season, especially for late arrivals. In most of our houses we do ensure that there is coffee, tea and condiments on arrival and the water here is perfectly drinkable from the tap. Unfortunately I couldn't find my book with walking routes and I'm sorry for not reporting back to you on this. I've never had anyone ask for this information before but can see that in this wonderful area we should add this information as standard to the house book which is supplied to all guests. I did come over to say hello during your stay and to find out if everything was OK, when we discussed the walking information, the missing parasol (which we immediately provided) and relocation of the parasol stand. I would normally only visit a guest personally once during any stay which I feel balances attention with privacy. I tell guests to contact me if anything is wrong during their stay because it is frustrating to find out afterwards when we cannot rectify any problems  - we also sent the following message the day after you arrived. "Hi Deirdre I hope you had a good journey and are settling in.  Please let me know if you have any queries. I just wanted to inform you that we have scheduled a clean and linen/towel change for Friday 28 July at 14:00.  Please could you clear all floors and surfaces where possible. Kind regards Ian Jul 23, 2017"
