Yavanna is very well kept with a brilliant view. Eunice was an amazing host who gives a warm welcome and helped us settle in. The beaches are close by and there a lot of activities to do such as kayaking and cycling. The location is perfect as you get to integrate into the culture of portugal. Overall I had an... More

Yavanna is an amazing property. beautiful garden and pool area and the two houses are both perfect. absolutely lovely area of Portugal. many activities to do such as kayaking and cycling. the beaches are not far away and they are incredibly beautiful. it's great because it isn't too touristy in this part.

It is exactly as the other reviews say. It is better than excellent. There are several walks in the area that transport you into another world and time. The sight of people tending their small holdings by hand and the array of produce being grown is something that is almost lost. The sounds of cocks crowing in the valley and... More

We have just reurned from a painting course hosted at Yavanna. Such a superb location as Eunice has crafted so many beautiful spaces in her garden...to rest in, and paint! We enjoyed the views of the mountain and the sense of being far away from man made noise...except Eunice juicing her home grown oranges! The natural world was very busy... More

We are a family of five (including 3 crazy boys) from Ireland. We spent a beautiful week in Yavanna last summer and would hightly recommend it to anyone. Eunice could not have been more helpful and the place was stunning. The area has a huge amount to offer and my only regret was that we could not spend 2 weeks.

Our family including three teenage daughters enjoyed a fabulous week at Yavanna in May 2011. We all immediately stepped in to ‘chill’ mode of relaxing by the beautiful pool or in the amazing hammocks in the beautiful gardens. No shops or bars nearby – no problem! We could easily have spent the whole time at Yavanna, however the town and... More

I have spent two lovely holidays at Yavanna and cannot imagine a more tranquil and relaxing place. The whole property has been lovingly restored to the highest standards and time spent in this beautiful spot with its dramatic view is really rejuvenating. Inside the houses are cool and tastefully decorated with beautiful art work and the gardens and pool area... More

Me and my family stayed here for 14 days in the beginning of june. We were 6 kids (3-14 years) and 6 grown-ups. We brought 3 cars, which all fit on the parking ground infront of the houses. The rooms were all nice and clean, and well kept. The bathrooms kept an excellent standard. The garden is huge, and has... More
