Autumn family holiday
Second visit to Tom's villa at Castro Marim .
Wonderfully quiet area of Portugal away from the usual tourist haunts.
Easy drive from Faro, toured round the area and the drive along the riverside to Alcoutim is spectacular.
The Villa itself is clean, well equiped, everything we needed was there. The pool area has new loungers, a gas bbq and a charcoal bbq with a great variety of fresh produce in the local supermarkets.
This is a great location, and we hope to be back in the near future.
Fantastic Villa and Pool
Stayed here for a week with our 4 kids we loved every minute if it. It was spotlessly clean really spacious and what a fantastic swimming pool. Great kids club with more swimming pools and great food at both kids club area and at clubhouse. Will definitely be recommending this villa to family and friends and host manager was very helpful if we had any questions prior to our stay so overall would recommend.
It whas a very good experience, the house is very good and well equiped.
