“Stress busting holiday. Quiet and comfortable.”
Reviewed August 7, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We spent 10 days in this charming villa which is a couple of kilometers outside Quelfes. Don't expect hustle and bustle, this is a villa for chilling out and making the occasional excursion to beach or restaurant. Situated down a little rural back lane there is, within olive pip spitting distance of the gate, a small bar which does light snacks. The boys on several occasions took themselves there for lunch where for about twelve Euros and each had not only a couple of beers but a plate of pork (in various forms) salad and chips. On each occasion, as soon as they had finished their plates, replenishments arrived at no cost. Ten minutes walk turning right out of the gate is a charming restaurant (quite a few ex pats and locals) where, once again, one can eat very cheaply. Try the local house white wine - nicely chilled it is very drinkable. The one think perhaps lacking, which I gather is being addressed, is the provision of shade by the pool. The photo shows an extensive canopy but this was damaged and had not been replaced. The sun can be very fierce so a substantial shaded area would be welcome. There are a couple of sun shades there but, as said, more are neeeded.especially if there are more than four of you.
There is a janitor/handyman/concierge who will welcome you. Andre is Dutch and extremely helpful. Four minutes walk is a tiny village shop otherwise one has to hop in the car and drive to the outskirts of Olhao to Continente, a big supermarket.
We did not do a great deal in all honesty. The main occupation was reading followed by sunning ourselves, swimming and eating out. The villa was extremely comfortable and well appointed. and we saw no need to rush around.
