Relaxing and peaceful
The villa is 'away from it all' and set in beautiful gardens.
We were privileged to see a variety of wildlife and birds during our stay.
The swimming pool and hot tub were great to relax in.
It is a quiet and peaceful area and the villa is very well equipped with everything you need and more.
Neill and Mel are great hosts, very friendly and genuine people who want you to have an enjoyable holiday.
We would definitely recommend and will be returning.
Thank you Neill and Mel

Goed huisje met een prachtige, grote tuin
Fantastisch verblijf met een heerlijke tuin met hottub en zwembad. Veel zitgelegenheid in de tuin. Huisje is rustig gelegen. Veel privacy.
Hele vriendelijke, behulpzame verhuurders.
This was our favourite family holiday destination by a long way. We arrived here with our two children (7/8) at the end of October and had the most idyllic 2 week stay. The house was immaculate and the grounds were enormous. The children has lots of freedom, we brought walkie-talkies and they were able to go feed nearby horses, while we 'waited' in the hot tub. There was also a games room, pool, table tennis, darts... we didn't hear 'I'm bored' once! Due to the geography of the house we were able to travel to the west coast, up north to Evora and east to Spain. We also travelled to the south coast a few times, where the children had a beach (Praia de Senhora de Rocha) completely to themselves. Restaurants near the property served fabulous food. The shops in Ourique had everything we needed, though our gracious guests had bought us the essentials so we didn't have to go to the shops until the next day. We floated home with a definite plan to return to this property.
Thank you, our aim is always to give the best we can, and I am so glad you appreciate our efforts and want to return you are so welcome

Absolutely great place to relax if you need to switch off from work and regenerate.. A country cott
My wife and I have rented many cottages and Villas throughout Portugal over the years in various locations. To be honest we never expected that this cottage would be any different from those previously experienced. We were totally wrong!, In the end this rental positively exceeded our expectations in many ways and is to date the best we have ever experience in relation to those properties previously rented . This is hard to top. Peace, tranquility, relaxation, privacy and above all, the cottage itself with its amenities. The swimming pool is great, not only with its size but the cleanliness. All aspects of this rental are clean and in good condition, nothing is missing. Value for money.
Our hosts Mel and Neiil were absolutely great and were at hand on our late arrival to the cottage. At their own expense they provided us with the start up food essentials until we ourselves had time to go to the supermarket next day. This was totally unexpected as we were not accustomed to such thought. More of a warm welcome one could not hope for or expect and this welcome brought us straight into the holiday feeling that one wishes and hopes for after a long journey. Importantly Mel and Neiil gave us our privacy, we were always warned when the pool cleaner would come and at what time. Therefore we always new when to wear something or when we were safe to run around naked as a Jay bird!
If you enjoy nature than this is the place to be and one must be prepared to make the effort oneself to explore the area and experience local culture. A car is a must for the longer journeys however from the cottage the nature walks are endless. Restaurants and other amenities are only a short drive away. The lakes are well worth the visit.
In one way we did not want to submit this report and would have preferred to keep this cottage a secret for future holidays for ourselves. Impossible as it is on the Internet!! Without hesitation we would recommend this cottage to those looking for a relaxing and peaceful holiday.
Thank you Mel and Neill for allowing us to stay at your cottage we had a great time and for the warm welcome and generosity shown by yourselves. Your scones were great Mel and we guarantee you we will be booking with you again.
Best regards and wishes

Wow ! what an overwhelming feeling from reading your review! of course we are over the moon , but what impresses me the most Michael is the fact that you have taken your time to write this as I know from meeting you two lovely people that you are so hard working and busy with your work that you have done this for us I! I must say I am so glad you had a lovely holiday and feel very privileged to have met you and we contributed to your well deserved rest .I am so pleased the cottage gave you peace and relaxation and refreshed you.
I do hope you return to us, but I would recommend you to anybody as you left our place so clean and it was a joy to walk in and see you have treated our place like a home you loved Thank you so much

Just got back from a 10 day stay at this superb villa. it does exactly what it says on the packet - peaceful, relaxing, perfect, everything you could possibly want and more, attention to detail second to none. the villa itself is more than well equipped and the owners have ensured it is literally like a home from home - there was absolutely nothing we lacked for, including English TV should we have wanted it. we were emailed before our arrival to see what we would like from the shop but they also got us wine and beer too. Mel and Neill were there to greet us and explain everything and were on hand if we needed anything. there were even things to use in the pool which was cleaned twice during our stay (Mel turning up with homemade scones, jam and cream too!!) the hottub was amazing and there are 4 separate areas with dining tables and chairs. there are a few restaurants nearby and a good supermarket too. we never paid more that 3 euros for a bottle of wine and never had a bad bottle!! we used the BBQ three times and loved it. the shade from the tree was needed every day as temperatures were over 100 degrees every afternoon. the beds were the comfiest I've ever slept in anywhere on holiday and we always had a good nights sleep as the air con units were superb. the pool was definitely NOT cold especially if you used the shower by the pool first before getting in, which you should do anyway and it was HUGE!! Amazing to swim laps in and also just to lazily float around. there wasn't another soul around for miles so it was the most peaceful holiday we've ever had. to say that Mel and Neill were the kindest most attentive hosts we've ever had would be an understatement! Nothing was too much trouble and all they wanted was to make sure we had everything we needed to make our holiday perfect - which it was. Even to the point where, as an animal lover, I fed a beautiful cat for several days then one day she turned up with two adorable kittens, which never ceased to make us laugh watching their antics. I didn't want to leave them but Mel and Neill, being animal lovers themselves having rescued three stray dogs and lots of beautiful parrots at their own home, offered to catch them and rehome them in their house - amazing and so kind hearted. All in all we can only say if you are wondering whether to book this villa, don't delay - peace, tranquillity, just like home, beautiful surroundings. we are already looking at dates for next year, a true treasure.
