What a lovely villa! We have all had a great time with thanks to Denise and Simon for thinking of everything. Weather has been great and we are all sorry to be leaving. Strongly recommend the treatments - an added bonus. Thank you both for the use of the car and creating this lovely retreat.

Thank you for a wonderful time everything Denise, Ian and Sarah have written is the same for us. So glad we came, sad to go but planning to come back

Thanks for making holidaying for the wheelchair user possible! The villa had everything that was needed and the car made getting Phil around so easy. When we all wanted to go out together, Denise being our driver was wonderful, again making life easy. Very much enjoyed the animals being around, made leaving ours behind bearable!
Thanks again for all your help Denise you are 1 in a million and work so hard to accommodate us.
Best wishes and good luck for the future

Ferry family
Thank you very much for our best holiday yet.  We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with you.  The property was spacious and the most disabled friendly we have ever stayed in.  We enjoyed the extra benefits such as the sun lounger with wheels and the mattress.  That made life quite a bit easier.  Gismo was loved by all and is now missed terribly.  Thank you for all your friendship while we were there and the lovely metamorphic treatment.
With best wishes,
Martin, Gwen, Chessie & Sophie

Nagre family
Our third holiday here and still Casa Ourico do Mar still ranks as one of the best holiday places for Teresa and I. Air conditioning is a huge improvement. The peace and quiet is still unsurparsable. Thank you Simon & Denise
Zee and Teresa

What a fab holiday we have had, David and Fraser said a week is too short and David said he would like to return with his mum and dad. Simon your weather sheet was 100% correct, sun all seven days. The house is just what we needed, well equipped for David who was in a wheelchair. Denise, thank you for your welcome at the airport and for the food and drinks. We will be passing on the word about Casa Ourico do Mar
All the very best
Sue, Tony, Fraser and David

Laws family
As soon as we stepped out of the lift we felt as we’d come home!
Thankyou both again we all had another wonderful holiday. Filiz’s experience with driving in foreign places meant we could wander out every day exploring and then return to the pool to cool off before dinner! Heaven. Take care, all the best and thank you again.

Our second time around for us but we liked it here so much we decided to have two weeks. Villa had all things in place for my needs, the hoist for the pool was a god send. Thank you Denise for taking us to Loule to enable us to have a couple of sangrea! Gizmo and Poppy are gorgeous and fun! Wish we could stay longer!
Thank you so much Simon & Denise for all your help and massage
Lots of Love

Thank you so much for providing us with such a lovely holiday home from home. This was our first trip to Portugal and we have been delighted with the accommodation, the transport and the help and wisdom of Denise.
Hopefully, next time we shall her therapies too!

Simon & Denise thank-you both so much, the villa and the surroundings are absolutely perfect. This is our 6th visit to Portugal and your villa is the best we have ever experienced, the pool was perfect and your animals are lovely - Tyson in particular was very friendly! Would love to come back again, in the meantime our very best wishes for everything in your future plans and thank-you for being perfect hosts too....
Caroline & Nigel

We leave today after a most wonderful week. You have been very welcoming and informative, we felt instantly at home in a beautiful place with a lovely surrounding and pets!
The pool is just the thing on a hot day and nothing beats a good BBQ with your lovely selves.
We shall miss Gizmo and the potty-headed Poppy.
Enjoyed the book.
Thanks a million
Julia, Carl & Ruth

John Hill
Lovely villa and location. Everything was there for John's needs, many thanks Simon for help in changing our fights and Denise for her help and understanding especially at 1 in the morning! We did see the sun on a few occasions but enjoy ourselves nevertheless. Keep up the dancing Denise!
Kind regards
Pat, John, Christine, Andy & Bill

Denise & Simon from the very first time I found Ourico do Mar on the internet I knew that we had found something very special and so it has turned out. This is a 5 star ++ villa which would appeal to absolutely everyone. You seem to have thought of everything. I think that we were a little unlucky with the weather for the first couple of weeks but this is such a lovely area that we have thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Full of admiration for what you have achieved here.
With best wishes George & Margaret
