All the information given before our visit was spot on and accurate. The villa very clean and comfortable with pretty garden. Location excellent for our needs. As described, the Village was quiet and relaxing with adequate amenities
The location is delightful: in a village that still remains largely undeveloped and overlooking open fields in one direction and with a long view from the terrace, across village rooftops to the not-so-distant coast, in the other. There's a beautiful beach reached via a lovely country walk. The village has an excellent - and-amazing-value - restaurant within easy walking distance of the house and there's plenty to do and see in the area.
All facilities that one could sensibly require are present; the rooms are generously-sized and the garden is delightful, including a secluded and good-sized pool. Everything was clean and well-maintained. Highly recommended!
A truly unspoilt village
Absolutely amazing to be able to find a place with unspoilt scenery and very good amenities. The Villa was perfect with a beautiful pool that is cleaned regularly. Many places within easy walking distance. Fantastic
Great villa in idyllic location
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Villa dos Arcos. The quiet location and the spacious living accommodation, not to mention the lovely pool, really made our stay in Portugal memorable. Figueira is one of the few unspoilt places on the South West coast of Portugal and one of the highlights was walking to Figueria beach, wonderfully remote and no other souls to be found, I suppose you sacrifice remoteness for lack of amenities. However there were other beaches nearby with facilities and restaurants with some great shell fish.
The description of the villa was accurate and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We ate out most evenings but the kitchen was well appointed for the evenings we decided to stay in. The local supermarket was excellent and very inexpensive compared to the UK.
I have passed on the details to several friends and look forward to returning next year.
The Villa is just as described in the website : spotlessly clean, spacious, with lovely views from the windows and terrace. It is full of local character, with a beautiful garden and a large swimming pool which has been completely renovated this year. It is tastefully decorated and well equipped, and the caretaker who met us was very helpful in answering all our questions.
We loved being in a real Portuguese village, with its cobbled streets and quaint little shops, and, as a bonus, a really excellent restaurant where delicious home-cooked meals were extremely modestly priced.
The nearest beach was a joy - hardly anyone else on it, with perfect sand and sheltered by cliffs ; the children loved exploring the caves.
It was so good to find a comfortable, stylish villa which was not on one of the many developments scarring the coastline further to the east.
We would recommend this unreservedly, unless you or your family want night life - there is none ! But there are many restaurants in other nearby villages, and we were never disappointed.
Finally, if you are a keen bird-watcher, this is a paradise - even a hoopoe in the garden, and lots of egrets in the pasture immediately outside.
Go before it gets spoilt.
Spacious villa in unspoit village
With the coast so heavily developed it is a delight to still find a village which retains its traditional character. The villa is a traditional dwelling located on the edge of the village with lovely views of the surrounding countryside from its spacious first floor sitting room. There is a sunny walled garden with mature plants and this leads to the villa's own pool. Within a short distance of the villa are a number of delightful beaches. The village has a lovely small restaurant where home cooked food is available in friendly informal surroundings. The village is full of narrow streets, but we never had any difficulty parking our hire car right next to the villa. The villa was well maintained and although we had no problems it was reassuring to know that that there was someone nearby to help with any difficulties. A piece of old Portugal away from the madding crowds, and thoroughly recommended.
Landsbyen ligger i West Algarve ca 8 miles vest for den historiske byen Lagos. Landsbyen har endret seg lite med det tjuende århundre. Lyst malte husene ser på svingete brosteinsbelagte gater.
Området, generelt enige om å være den vakreste i Algarve, består av bølgende åser med et vell av turer gjennom fiken og mandel lunder. Denne nasjonalparken er Algarve eneste verneområde og er rikt utstyrt med ville blomster og et utrolig utvalg av fugler og sjeldne sommerfugler. En fugle se loggen er holdt i Villa, og har hyppige referanser til ulike ørn, Harriers, hegre, hoopoes, gribb og sangere. Expert guidede fugletitting turer er tilgjengelig.
Landsbyen er under en kilometer fra den helt uberørt kystlinje av små sandstrender viker, og står ca 100 meter over havet i åpent landskap med utsikt over en skogkledd dal oversådd med hvite vindmøller og eukalyptusskoger.
