Cheryl, you and your house make holidaying with a large group so easy. From booking to end of holiday was brilliant.
The grandchildren absolutely loved it and the pool was ideal.
We were sad to leave.

“Peaceful and Luxurious accomodation”
Reviewed April 17, 2015 for a stay in August 2013

The River House is a perfect location for a relaxing family holiday. We travelled with teenage children and grand-parents. The accommodation is extremely well appointed and quite luxurious, with great layout of upstairs and downstairs bedrooms. The surrounding area is just lovely with gorgeous views over the river, lovely walks and activities close by. We went quad biking which was a highlight, and ended in a swim in a cooling natural reservoir. The property is secluded and private, so a very peaceful place to relax by the pool, yet still close enough (30 mins), to the Algarve beachfront and water parks. A highly recommended holiday rental property, with very approachable and friendly owners.

I have fully enjoyed my stay at the River House with my friends. The house is brilliant and the setting is stunning. It is situated on a hill, overlooking the river and right on the 'Via Algarviana' (300km walking path). The infinity pool is very inviting and the terrace and decking are beautiful. This is a place to find peace, relax and spend quality time with friends or family. I am taking my parents and my kids there in October for a week long holiday. I can't wait.

If your idea of a perfect holiday in Algarve is for a beautiful and tranquil retreat then look no further than The Riverhouse. Away from the over crowded beaches during the summer, the house sits in rural countryside overlooked by the River Funchal where wild flowers and orange groves bloom. A romantic getaway, an energetic countryside break, a welcome detox from modern life....the choice is yours. Enjoy.

“An outstanding villa in and idyllic location”

A fabulous villa in an idyllic location. Perfect for a family visit which included 4 children aged 4 and under. The villa is equipped to an extremely high standard and the local manager made sure the villa was prepared and ready to meet all the requirements we had made. The views are spectacular from this secluded spot which allowed us to really unwind and spend some quality time together.

“Perfect holiday destination for our family and friends”

I travelled to the River House with my husband and 10 month old baby together with another family of 3 with a baby and also one single friend. The house accommodated us all wonderfully. The five bedrooms are air conditioned and really well appointed. The linen was wonderfully crisps and the downstairs bedrooms had fans and lovely ensuites. We spent most of the time either in the kitchen or in the garden. The kitchen is massive and has every kind of dish, utensil, pot you can think of. It's seriously impressive. We had a bbq every night at the house and ate outside in the garden. The bbq is serious and we had a lot of fun trying different things. The outdoor furniture is really comfortable too. One of the most amazing things about the house is it's location. From every angle, you're hard pressed to find a neighbour or house. It's so remote! Truly relaxing! We found that most things were a 30 minute drive from the house, so it's very accessible. The only things I would mention that weren't perfect was the lack of a bath despite having more than enough space and also not having any local tv stations or the bbc to watch the World Cup. Overall it was an amazing holiday which we won't forget!

We are happy to hear that you had an amazing holiday at the River House and that you found the villa so comfortable and well equipped. My husband loves the BBQ too and refers to it as the space ship! Unfortunately we lost our TV channels when the satellite was repositioned but we are looking into other options so that we can provide a variety of TV channels including British. The installations of the baths are on our to do list! Thank you for taking your time to provide us with your feedback and we hope you have the opportunity to stay with us again in the not too distant future :-)

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in October - it is so peaceful, very spacious and extremely well equipped (especially for babies). We always tried to make it back to the house for sunset by the pool as it was so pretty! Arvril was wonderful, very helpful on arrival and had done some extra shopping for us also. And the house was spotless!
