A wonderful week in this gem of a cottage. It has so much character and atmosphere. We were lucky with the weather. We will be back to enjoy this very special of places.

We will keep it short! We have stayed at the 'clinical/efficient' villas in Carvoeiro area before but we have just loved The Stables for it natural homely appeal. We were unable to find anything to complain about and two small niggles were promptly resolved by Charlie and Joan. Thank you both for that. Once again a big thank you to Vintage Travel and Joan.
Mr & Mrs Bedford


What a wonderful place 'The Stables' is - a wonderful week. Thank you Joan.
Mr & Mrs Russell


The Stables has been a lovely peaceful spot for a holiday and perfect as a base to explore the area. Local supermarket is excellent and cafe Jophill great. The Stables is very well equipped and maintained as are the grounds and the pool. Joan and her team are very friendly and helpful. We thoroughly recommend a holiday here and the Portuguese have been charming and friendly too.
Mr & Mrs Macdonald


We said that we would be back and we have stayed here again for another week. Lovely to be back and still as enjoyable as out first visit last May. Spent most days relaxing by the pool (and sampling the local wine), and had a few excellent BBQs. Ate out at Bengagil beach and Restuarant Oregano across the road as good as ever. Thank you Joan (yet again) for letting us have another relaxing hoiday at the lovely Stables.

We have had a wonderful few days here at The Stables. Portugal has blown us away - so friendly and beautiful. The cottage is everything you could want - quaint, well-equipped and very comfortable. We have come to the conclusion it would be very easy to live here full-time! Thank you Joan and Len for eveything.

We've had a lovely week at the Stables. It's our first holiday in Portugal but our 7th with Vintage. We were very impressed with the The Stables, clean as always and very well equipped. We were also very impressed with the maid service. Thanks also to Charlie and Joan who helped sort out the problem with the hot water. It was lovely to meet Joan and although we didn't get a chance to meet Charlie, mobile phone texting enabling him to give advice and help when needed. As other have mentioned, we loved Silves, the fort at Sagres and Porta da Piedade in Lagos. Our favourite beach was Marinha which is lovely and unspoiled and best visited at low tide.
The Vince Family


Well, what a lovely week we have had here at the Stables. Spent much of the time reading and enjoying pool, but our days out led us to the beach (Praia Grande) between Armacao de Pera and Salgados - a mile or two of dune backed beach - unspoiled - try it! We have enjoyed the lovely rustic ambiance and would love to think we will be able to return soon.
Mr and Mrs Walker


Like everyone else we consider ourselves fortunate and lucky to have come across The Stables. What a special place in these days of modern stereotypical apartment complexes. We headed west for the best 'finds' of the holiday. Well worth going to Praia da Ingrina on your way back from Cape St. Vincent and enjoying lunch under the palms of the delightful bar / restaurant. Carrapateira beach on the west coast is like the Algarve of 30 years ago the best tuna salad of the holiday was at the beach bar on Praia da Bordeira. The Stables surpassed our expectations and we all hope to return.
