The accommodation is spacious and well laid out, with all the necessary amenities to provide a great holiday. The area around the villa is very quiet during the day, so you will need to decide whether to just chill, with a great pool and all the facilities you need to do very little whilst the kids have fun, or to head for the Algarve's great beaches (Alvor is perfect), the water parks or the views and cafe bars of Monchique. In the evening, it's a wonderful place to BBQ (and very cheap) or you can walk to Fonte de Pedra or Tasco for a great steak or sea food for some of the lowest prices anywhere. A short ride to Solar de Forelo, again superb food, plus Fernando's many Ports!
