Recently returned from a short 5 day break to Portugal. The residence is in a great rural setting amongst the orange groves with a spattering of olive trees around, and little to no noise from the main highway a short distance away as the crow flies, however we didn't spend much time at the residence as we were off exploring all day and into late evening, so it's a fantastic base to explore from. Rooms were clean and beds comfortable, morning breakfast was simple and tasty with local produce.
We were made to feel most welcome and Bill was a gem with local knowledge for eating out and places to visit. There are some fantastic beaches nearby and great restaurants in Silves, Lagoa and surroundings, which was great especially given it was late December quite a few places were open and the food was traditional Portuguese, simple and tasty and surprisingly inexpensive.
I would definitely stay again and recommend to others
