As we are based in Portugal, we and our Portuguese staff obviously know the country, customs and people of this delightful country very well. The staff collectively speak English, Portuguese, French, Spanish, Italian and German and we are therefore very confident that we can fully meet and hopefully, exceed your expectations.
We specialize in the Iberian Peninsula and pride ourselves in knowing the accommodation on our site. Properties are inspected before being invited to appear on the site and no charge is made for inclusion. We reserve the right to remove a property, at any time, if standards are not maintained. This also applies if we are of the opinion that the accommodation will not be available for financial or other reasons.
The properties we offer have been carefully selected with regard to the quality and standard of the accommodation, the location, the facilities and services provided by owners and also the backup available in the event of unforeseen circumstances.
Our portfolio of villas can be found throughout mainland Portugal and the Islands of Madeira and The Azores. They represent a comprehensive range of accommodation from very high quality luxurious villas to the charmingly rustic. They all however represent excellent value for money.
The accommodation is in many different locations from the undiscovered and beautiful North of Portugal to the famous Algarve region. It also varies in size from small villas for those who want a private, idyllically peaceful holiday to the larger villas which cater for families or large groups.
Inspection visits are made by members of our team and we make every effort to ensure that the description of the villas on our site is fair, accurate and up to date.
To maximize occupancy of the owners who offer the villas, and to ensure that they provide high quality accommodation and the best service possible, at the lowest available rates, to those using our websites.
