“We hired the Figs for 5 nights to have it as our picturesque wedding venue. Our close friends stayed there with us, making use of all the rooms plus the 2 safari/glamping tents. That was accommodation for 14 of us in total. I've heard nothing but compliments from our wedding guests, commenting on how beautiful the venue was. We got some amazing pictures with a stunning backdrop (even though the river was dried up due to the lack of rain in Portugal). We planned the wedding ourselves, which included decorating the place with our own items we purchased, but we also made use of some vital items that Cheryl and Graham already had, such as white chairs to seat the guests and tables for dining. We also used their list of contacts to help hire people such as Sue Sutherland, the caterer, who was just absolutely amazing. We are delighted with how well everything went - in our eyes it was perfect - and Figs on the Funcho has given us fond memories we will hold onto forever. The memories aren't limited to the wedding itself either. Just being able to share a holiday with our closest friends, in a beautiful location with great weather, chilling by the pool or just generally having a bit of craic together, and the lovely family style dinners and bbq we had - our time there was amazing and memorable and we were sad to leave. If we had a choice to do it all over again, we would 100% keep the wedding at Figs on the Funcho.”
“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! https://www.hochzeitsplaner-miguelkel.de”
