  • We stayed with Sofia for two nights in Praia Da Rocha, she was extremely helpful in showing us how to get to around and recommending places to eat. Her apartment was clean and comfortable and had all facilities. A great places to stay if you want to be close to the beach!

  • Die Unterkunft ist sehr gepflegt, schöne alte Villa mit modernen Bädern. Der Blick vom Balkon ist traumhaft.
    Sofia, die Gastgeberin ist immer da wenn man sie braucht und lässt einen gleichzeitig auch absolut in Ruhe. Sie hat uns tolle Ausflugstips genannt und erzählt was in den nächsten Tagen in der Umgebung los ist.

  • We had a lovely and very relaxing stay at Sophia's place. It was clean, cosy, and we enjoyed the sea-view from the terrace in the morning and the evening. It was like heaven! :)

  • We were picked up by our hosts (for the price of taxi fare) and were given a tour of the area. The condo is 2km from town/amenities. We didn't have a car so paid the 10 euro fee to use bikes for the week. This worked well for us.
    We appreciated the welcome wine, water, cheese and crackers provided by the hosts.
    The condo was modern, clean and very comfortable. We enjoyed the many balconies and the pool area.
    The hosts were extremely friendly and accommodating. We would definitely stay there again.

  • We had a wonderful stay at Sofia's villa. The location is close to the beach and the popular promenade for shopping and eating. The rooms and bathrooms are kept very clean, and the kitchen is well stocked to prepare and cook meals. We stayed for 5 nights and enjoyed getting to know Sofia and her family as well as the other guests. Highly recommended!

About
I love to welcome friends, to cook for them, to show them our beautiful region. I love nature, the beach, the sea. I love children. I love reading, walking, cooking. I love the sunshine, laughter, warm summer nights. If I had to leave the Algarve, I'd want to move somewhere where I can wear shorts and flipflops all year round. At Villa Joaninha, guests are friends that we get to know while they stay with us. It is important for us that your stay is relaxed, informal and happy. Happiness really is key!
