Review your stay at Figs on the Funcho
“We had a great stay. In fact, we enjoyed being at The River House so much that we didn't really explore the area. We had a nice meal at Academico and went on a trip to Sagres. Very peaceful and very quiet. Just what we needed.”

Perfect for group getaways
“"The River House is a beautiful villa and we very much enjoyed our stay. The info pack was really helpful and we visited several of the places mentioned. We also booked the wine tasting who came to the villa which was lovely - we would all definitely recommend it!””
“We had a wonderful stay at the River house. We had bikes delivered to the villa for our stay & did some beautiful rides & lots of walking whilst enjoying the local villages. Excellent accommodation that worked really well for us as a large family. I must say I have never slept so well when I have been away the beds were so comfy !!”

The Perfect Wedding Venue
“As a Wedding and Events supplier I get to visit some really amazing venues and locations, I had the pleasure of suppling a sound system and lighting for a Wedding at Figs on the Funcho, if you are looking for a truly unique rural Wedding venue you wont get much better than The River House, I can't recommend this place highly enough....you wont be disappointed with its location and beautiful views overlooking the river.

“We booked this villa though a child friendly villa agent and were pleasantly surprised. It is remote and you will need a car, but there are so many great places to visit! Our group were 7 adults, a 14 month baby, 2.5 year old and 4 year old. The villa is extremely well equipped, especially the kitchen, which is huge. Safety and toys provided for children, which is key for us. The gardens are very well groomed and there is a lot of space. The views are beautiful! The pool initially looked quite small, but actually worked out very well as it has different levels. The view from the pool is outstanding. Local town supermarche is stocked with everything you would need, even vegan items which was an amazing surprise! We really enjoyed a day trip to Praia 3 Iramaos beach and also Fortaleza de Armação de Pêra. Albuferia wasn't as nice and deffo would not go there again. Our visit to Silves was lovely. We did a walk around the town and the castle and we ate dinner at Cafe Ingles, which was excellent!”
