One of the most amazing things about the house is its location. From every angle, you’re hard pressed to find a neighbour or house. It’s so remote! Truly relaxing! – Jackie Y.

A home away from home!

Cheryl's & Graham's riverside home is a hidden gem in the Algarve. I had the pleasure of staying there two nights together with a team of wedding suppliers during the production of a wedding editorial at Figs on the Funcho in April 2021. Cheryl is a wonderful host, very warm and caring (and a great cook!). For me it felt like a home away from home. It's also a beautiful wedding venue and very suitable if you're looking for a private, understated chique boho vibe for your day. Thank you for your great care Cheryl! I highly recommend Figs on the Funcho to all brides to be & to everyone looking for a quiet holiday location in nature!

As a destination wedding planner in Portugal, I get to see many different venues. When I viewed Figs on the Funcho for the very first time, I got totally impressed by it's lovely location with all the nature around. The modern River House, the outside area with swimming pool and the great hospitality from Cheryl and Graham make you feel very welcome. Thank you!

A beautiful villa on a stunning lake

Figs on the Funcho is an absolute delight. I'm a British wedding celebrant based on the Algarve and was trying to find a villa where weddings could be held in a stunning location but away from the tourist traps of the coast. Figs on the Funcho is just that spot. Slightly inland, the house is beautifully decorated and perfectly laid out; the kitchen one of those fabulous places to enjoy time with family and friends during your stay. But it's the views outside that are the absolute gem here; a stunning lake/dam right on your doorstep (but safely behind gates for those with young children) and decking where you can eat or dance the evening away. The owner Cheyl is easy to communicate with (handy when you're trying to make plans) and the house is easy to find. Whenever couples ask for advice on somewhere really special to stay and have their big day, Figs on the Funcho is right up there at the top of my list. Half an hour from the coast, it has it all - close enough for an easy drive to the beach but then away from it all for those who want to unwind. Perfect.
