This little villa is perfect for a couple to stay for a short trip. It's almost a secret hideaway, located down some steps, and around the back of the owner's property. It has a shared small pool, outdoor seating area and sunbathing area. For a few days, we just chilled out at the villa and it was a lovely area. It is well located, with lots of nearby restaurants and even a 'corner shop' just down the road. It has easy access to a small beach, just 5 mins walk away and the town of Carvoeira just a little further down the road, but easily walkable if you wished.
You need a car to get any further along the coast, but it was easy to find and easy to get around. There's also loads of parking. Nina even offers airport transfers (and I might be tempted to take her up on the offer next time!).
Nina was very friendly and welcoming and even stayed up to greet us when our flight was delayed which really was beyond the call of duty!
The villa was well equipped with everything required and the most enormous and comfortable bed!
The only very small thing was the directions to find the property. From the direction we came, the property was on the right, and as such, could not see the name of the villa (as the sign was on the opposite wall). The directions state we should approach and see if on the left, so we must have gone wrong, yet ended up on the correct street. We did circle for about 10 mins before speaking with Nina on the phone to find her! It was sooo good of her to wait up for us though.
One other note - there are lots of steps, so not suitable if you have any mobility challenges. Also - mosquitos - take repellent - they were tenacious.
Would totally recommend.
portugues cottage atmosphere, but with an excellent wi fi, tv with all international channels, next door to the golf, you can watch the game from the cottage as well, near the beach,(4 min. walk), parking, swimming pool, comfortable bed. Good kitchen facilities.
Stayed for 3 nights from 19th of September. Peace guaranteed.
