After 20 years of towns and crowds we wanted something different.Boy did we strike lucky. If it's peace and tranquility in a beautifull setting your after this is for you.
The nest is exactly as it sounds.A cosy retreat for two .Immaculately maintained
The pool greets you with panoramic views of the surrounding hills and the plains below all the way to the ocean.Fabulous barbecue area ,modern jacuzzi.
We walked everywhere but when a taxi was required never a problem.
Karl and Daphne are about should you need them.Nothing these two guys won't do to enhance your stay.

“Perfect haven of tranquility”

This is our second visit to Karl and Daphne's beautiful Love Nest and our third trip is already booked! The Nest is the perfect retreat for a complete switch off relaxing break with beautiful views of the surrounding area. It is easily accessible to wherever you choose, be it the quaint local villages with cafes and restaurants or a bit further afield to bigger towns and more commercial areas of the Algarve.
Karl and Daphne are the perfect most welcoming hosts with as much or as little help support and advice that you need.
The Nest is very well equipped and very clean and comfortable with an excellent welcome pack on arrival just what you need after travelling. The pool area is perfect for enjoying the gorgeous sunny weather with ample shade provided if required and of course being able to cool off in the water which we were very grateful for during our stay! There was a fab addition for us this year which is the hot tub on the sun terrace. This is a completely private area where you can lay back and relax watching the sun go down and the stars appear.
Eating out is very reasonable and lots of different types of cuisine is available to suit everyone's taste. There is also a good choice of supermarkets from a small local one literally at the bottom of the lane selling the basics or larger ones including a Lidl about a 15/20 min drive.
There really is no negatives at all we feel truly blessed that we have found it and have made friends with two lovely people Karl and Daphne. Take care and we will see you next year!

“Absolutely wonderful in every way”
Reviewed April 10, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

After last year's fabulous week at Ninho do Amor, we wondered if it was really as good as we remembered. It certainly was!!! We have just spent another terrific holiday week at this wonderful wonderful countryside retreat, within striking distance of all one could wish to visit in the Algarve - we even spent a day in Spain which is a short drive away. We enjoyed a boat trip also to islands just off the coast. Most of all, we just loved the privacy of "The Nest" and the renewal of our friendship with Karl and Daphne who are simply delightful and the perfect hosts.
"The Nest" has everything a couple could need. It is very well equipped inside, and even the fridge is stocked to welcome your arrival. There is a good deal of privacy outside - at the pool and in the upper garden where a new jacuzzi has been installed since last year and which is very private, yet affords stunning views over the Algarve coastline far below. This year we even saw the pair of little owls which have this area as their territory - and bee-eaters nearer the coast.
What an absolutely wonderful time we had - thanks once again, Daphne and Karl! We just love the pair of you and look forward to future holidays with you.
We'll be back!

A cozy tranquil retreat in a beautiful location.An ideal base to explore the surrounding area.
The owners of the property were a charming delightful couple who went out of their way to ensure we felt welcome and catered for all we could wish for and more.
We will remember them with much fondness.
Thank you Karl and Daphne.

“The best holiday we have ever had”
Reviewed September 8, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Having returned from our holiday a few weeks ago and got back into the 'rat race' i thought it was time to write a review about our holiday. From start to finish i can honestly say it was a world class experience. Karl and Daphne not only greeted us, they took us out for lunch and showed us the best supermarkets, they were there if needed but kept in the background.Nothing was too much trouble, you are treated as a friend not just another punter.
The 'nest' is very well kitted out, very clean with a welcome pack that included cold beer which was very welcome in the Algarve heat.
We were so happy we booked to return while we were still on holiday there.
If you only go to Portugal once, book the 'Nest' and enjoy a fabulous holiday with world class hosts
