Reviews of CASA DAS REDES, AT QUINTA DAS REDES
Simply stunning villa and a fantastic location
It's not often that you get the perfect accommodation in the perfect location, but this comes pretty close!
The villa is beautiful, with large bedrooms, and fantastic en-suite bathrooms.
The kitchen is well-equipped, and the indoor and outdoor living areas have a very relaxed feel to them.
Catherine - the owner - gave us a warm, friendly welcome and explained the setup, and gave us some useful local knowledge.
The beautiful beach is literally a two minute walk away, and there are a number of good restaurants in walking distance, as well as a number of well-stocked supermarkets (we liked the local one just up the road - they do great pasteis de nata).
The pool area is really lovely, as well as being very secure and private and the lemon trees and plants and flowers give it a really relaxed feel.
Our 4 year old loved playing in the toddler pool in the morning, and then we all got to play in the grown up pool in the afternoon!!
Both the pool cleaners and house cleaner came very regularly and did a great job; the house was spotless.
I guess the best the best review is to say is that we have never booked to stay in the same place two years on the trot - until now - and we're counting down the days until we return.
