Visitor Comments


We have stayed elsewhere in the Algarve, but Cruz Alta ranks amongst the best."

"The house is in a superb setting with well maintained, secluded gardens".

"A little bit of peace and quiet and a chance to escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life".

"Our children enjoy Cruz Alta and after two visits are already looking forward to our return next year."

"We have enjoyed the many local attractions such as the dolphin riding at Zoo Marine, Karting Almancil and the Aqua Family Park. The beaches are excellent and all within a half hour drive."

"Normally we like to spend our holidays in different locations but this the first place that we have ever wanted to return to regularly."

Well equipped kitchen with a good range of appliances and inglenook dining.
