Compared with the majority of holiday accommodation, our villa is very wheelchair friendly to guests with a wide range of disabilities. Being on a single level throughout, & with a short shallow ramp to the pool means moving around the villa & adjacent terraces is very easy, however we feel that the villa is unsuitable for unassisted guests, nor is it suitable for all types of disability – please read the details given carefully, also the disability FAQs which give specific answers to questions that have been raised.

“This has been the first all family holiday since 2004 & has been a marvellous success. The house was ideally suited for 3 families with the …….. enjoying the casinha. I am confined to a wheelchair as I have motor neuron disease. It has been wonderful to find a villa which is disabled friendly. The wet-room has been superb & with the shower chair I had everything I needed. ”
