This was a real "find" for us - peaceful surroundings in a magical house in the foothills overlooking Faro and the surrounding countryside. Fiona and Robin were excellent hosts and a font of knowledge on the local area. Top Tip no.1 - car essential to make the most of a stay here. Top Tip no.2 - starve yourself for several... More

We stayed at Winnie Hill for a week and we had the most stressless holidays ever! The place is just wonderful with a perfect view, a nice swimming pool and cute rooms. The breakfast is better than in a 5-Star Superior hotel -Thanks to Fiona.

After staying here last year for 3 nights, this year we decided to go here and only here. We stayed here for 5 nights. I can't emphasize how much i want to keep this place a secret from everyone i know because its so nice. You start your day so refreshed after wonderful nights sleep in a comfy bed. Now... More

We have nothing to add to the already existing reviews. Our stay at Winniehill was great and we would certainly come again. Here, we'd just like to point out, that the Rummikub rules practised at Winniehill are not in line with international standards. :) Katrin & Martin

We had a wonderful stay here last week and are planning a return visit next summer for longer. Superb breakfasts with homemade muffins & bread, fruit, yogurts and more. Ask Fiona to cook supper for you, amazing fish! Such a lovely, friendly couple who could not do more to make your stay with them any more enjoyable

If we could give you just one traveller's advice, it would be " do not think twice and stay here". We felt welcome from the moment we got out of the car, Ruppert (one of the fury fellows in the house) came to say hi and showed us the way. Once we got inside the experience got even better, the...

Thank you so much Fiona and Robin for your welcome. We were really feeling at home in Winniehill thanks to you and other friendly guests we met all along these two weeks. Very quiet place close to Faro and Olhao, great breakfast and diner, funny Sunday evening in "Chicken Castle" and interesting topic of conversation every day. Not forgetting Abigail... More

Before we booked the Pool room with Robin and Fiona, we wondered if people were getting a bit carried away with their reviews and whether one or two were perhaps over doing just how wonderful it all was. Well they weren't and it is just as wonderful as everyone says! Robin and Fiona exude calm and care perfect yet unobtrusive... More

We stayed with Fiona and Robin for 4 nights in mid-July 2015. We had a great time, Fiona and Robin are great hosts; talk to them about places to go as they know the places the locals try to keep to themselves. The other guests at the time were equally charming and the buffet breakfast is a great chance to... More

What could be a warmer welcome than 2 freindly dogs, a huge black cat and a nice couple with a big smile? We got a deatiled description how to reach the house which is nestled on the hills facing Faro coast, not far from the sea, so it was easy to find them. There is a nice pool, and common... More
