Holiday 2016
We stayed for just over 3 weeks this summer, it was peace and tranquility for the whole time. Ideal for a big family, we had 14 of us. 2 pools and we all had our own space. A short drive from Fuzeta which is a great place. Would recommend this place for any big family holiday, although I am aware that it can be divided into two houses. Great service by Mars Algarve. Used a local car hire recommended by Mars and they were great. Thanks to everyone.
