Nice house, great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 2 weeks, 4 adults and a baby. Very charming typical house.

Great swimming pool, great garden. 2 minutes from very nice Village of Moncarapacho. Ideal place to visit Algarve, Alentejo, 5 minutes from the Highway.

Good equipements, nice terrace. Noisy roadtoo near from the house... (acceptable...)

Strongly recommended, regarding the price and location.

Rustig, eenvoudig, comfortabel

  • 4 of 5

We (gezin met 2 zonen van 11 en 14) hebben een heerlijke tijd gehad in deze villa. Het huis is in tweeën verdeeld, zodat er twee gezinnen in kunnen verblijven, uitermate geschikt dus om met twee gezinnen op vakantie te gaan. Je hebt voldoende privacy en kunt elkaar ook makkelijk opzoeken in het gedeelde zwembad. Het huis is eenvoudig ingericht, maar wel van alle gemakken voorzien. De omgeving is prachtig, het huis zelf is rustig gelegen, de plaatsjes makkelijk bereikbaar en zo ook de kust. De westkust is wel wat verder rijden, maar zeker goed te doen voor een dagtocht. Voordelig vonden wij ook dat de reistijd vanaf Faro maar een klein half uur is, zodat we na een zeer hartelijke ontvangst van de eigenaren, direct het zwembad in konden.
