Deborah, we are very very pleased with the result of our bedrooms. The team was very professional, especially Marco he is very good.
Thank you so much for you help.
Thanks for the beautiful furniture based on your great advice!
We would both like to thank you for the excellent service we received from yourself in furnishing our apartment at the Marina in Albufeira.
It was all new to us and we valued your expertise regarding selection of furniture and bed linen, also curtains.
We were able to "walk" into the apartment on 11th February and everything was done - beds made and furniture in place.
We are delighted with everything and look forward to welcoming family and friends who have seen photographs and are very impressed with furniture, etc...
Many thanks and best wishes
Yvonne and Brian Roden
We would like to testify to the satisfaction we have had in calling your company to furnish our apartment.
The reception of all the staff was really perfect. Sara's help in coordinating the various pieces of furniture, fabrics, carpets, bedding and accessories has allowed us to move from a new but completely empty apartment to a completely metamorphosed place and all this in our absence.
We were of course a little worried about the estimate that we were going to receive, but in the end, and considering the quality of the furniture, we feel it was perfectly reasonable.
Thanks again to Simple Taste and especially to Sara for the work done.Patricia & Etienne / 17/11/2016
Huge Thanks to Deborah at Simple Taste for turning our Villa into a home, much envied by everyone who has visited. Her professional opinions on colours, furniture, lighting and accessories which are now in situ look stunning. We were not over in the Algarve to watch our home develop, Deborah and her team just took care of everything from deliveries to fitting, and when we arrived it was complete, just awesome! Will definitely recommend to anyone.Jim and Rachel / 31/10/2016
Deborah, I can't thank you enough for the great job you have done for my Villas.
The furniture not only looks lovely but is enormously comfortable. And the installation is always perfect - ready to move into. Everyone who has either been there, or seen pictures, is so impressed!
I will be adding a couple of pieces when I am next there. Might be November.
Thanks once again and I look forward to coming back to Simple Taste again.
With best regards
Just as clients complain when things go wrong, we also need to congratulate when things are good!
So just want to say the wall paper looks stunning and a big congratulations to Marco & his colleague for doing a perfect installation! JLiza Nunes / 16/08/16
Let Simple Taste take the stress out of furnishing your apartment on the Algarve . They can be trusted to look after your project even if you are back in the UK. The staff are very professional from the sales team to the delivery and install team. I would not hesitate to use them again in the future.
Tom & ElaineThomas Worthington / 11/08/16
I found Simple Taste to be extremely helpful with my furniture purchase. They provided good advice in a friendly manner, and once decision was made (and I had returned to UK), left everything in their hands through to delivery and set up of the furniture. Will happily return.
Thanks for all your help in this matter, will certainly remember Simple Taste for future requirements.

Our family purchased a holiday home in Portugal just over 18 months ago, it was a new build and so needed furnishing entirely, we visited Simple Taste and were impressed with the quality of their furniture and also the very friendly and helpful staff. We were not entirely sure what we wanted but with Deborah's help and patience (and after several versions of choices) we settled on our purchases and within weeks it was all delivered and fully installed to our complete satisfaction.
Since then I have contacted Deborah on other matters I needed help with i.e. legal advice, directions, and where to purchase a particular item which Simple Taste do not retail, her help has been invaluable. Owning a home in Portugal but living in England is not always easy, but our problems have been halved thanks to Deborah.
If you are thinking of furnishing a home, I would definately recommend you pay a visit to Simple Taste, I guarantee you will not be disappointed, the entire process has been a pleasurable one, and the staff are not only friendly and helpful, they are extremely professional and willing to help in any way possible. An absolute joy to do business with.
Thank you Simple Taste
Many many thanks for your absolute and utter professionalism, we would most definitely recommend your services to anybody.
Kindest regards, VickyVicky / 13/07/16
Simple Taste took away the worry of having to completely furnish our empty house and they delivered on time. The furniture is of good quality and tasteful. We would recommend Simple Taste without hesitation.
AlanAlan / 04/07/16
Simple Taste were recommended to us by friends. From the outset Sara, our designer, quickly identified our needs and tastes which interpreted into a very pleasing result. Her skill in choosing fabrics especially and wall-coverings has been first class.
The fitting team have been friendly and helpful and have resolved any difficulties arising.
We shall continue to use Simple Taste in future projects.

Good morning Deborah,
The furniture has all arrived and looks lovely.
Really happy now! The delivery guys were great.
Many thanks for all your help.
Kind regards, WendyWendy / 15/06/16
My husband and I have been completely satisfied with the service Simple Taste.
The result was beyond our expectations. Deadline respected and work done impeccably.
Thank you very much,
After looking at 4 other furniture companies and having detailed quotations from 3 of them, I came across Simple Taste’s website. Looking at their portfolio, I liked all the pictures of their different projects – all very different but all very stylish. I also liked the idea that, although they offered complete furniture and furnishings for the whole house, there was not a standard one-fits-all package and price. Although, initially worried that this would make it much more expensive, that wasn’t to be the case. The fact that all our furniture we chose was made in Portugal also attracted me as I didn’t want our Portuguese house kitted out with English furniture in an English style, tempting as that might be to stick with what we know.
It was Sara who prepared our quotation in great detail before we flew out to finalise everything. As there is no “standard package”, every quotation is costed individually. Lots of emails were exchanged and she always answered my numerous questions We were provided with a detailed quotation together with lots of pictures showing how everything might look. The flexibility of styles and sizes (as a lot of furniture is made up to exact measurements) meant that we could have truly exactly what we wanted. The choice of fabrics was huge, but Sara was there to guide us with choice of colour, textures etc. She was very patient as she showed me all the fabrics chosen for the bedcoverings and cushions as well as mirrors and pictures – all of these made to measure . – we just don’t have this kind of choice and flexibility for bespoke items in the Uk in this price range. Despite my misgivings at choosing slightly more modern furniture than my normally conservative mind would veer towards, she persuaded me that it would all look lovely. She was right! I had a comparative quote from another company which I very nearly went with – I would have had a perfectly attractive house with perfectly attractive accessories, but that is all. With Sara, however, she has produced something truly special and stunning. Her eye for colour, detail and choices of fabrics is natural and all her suggestions have proved successful. She steered me very gently in a direction I would never have normally chosen, but now realise this is totally right for our house. We love it!
Throughout the whole experience, Sara was polite, informative, forever helpful and, even when I asked her to change the colour scheme for one of the bedrooms (not because I didn’t like her choices, but because I wanted it to be in a more unisex colour), she painstakingly produced another beautiful scheme with lovely soft furnishings. She never put us under any pressure to choose quickly or tried to force the sale.
It was a real pleasure dealing with her on what could have been a very daunting task. We will be back any time we need further accessories or any other furniture for our house.
Thanks to Sara again and also to Marco and his team for their polite and professional manner during the delivery and fitting service.
B & GB & G / 16/05/16
Hi Deborah ...
The house looks fantastic with all the furnishings in.
Many thanks to you for your help and professionalism in achieving the outcome that I believe we all wanted to see.
Jim, Janette and Louise.Jim, Janette & Louise / 13/05/16
We used Simple Taste to furnish our three bedroom apartment in Vila Sol. They had a very good range of furniture, curtains etc. The show room is very nice, but they also have a much wider range of furniture and furnishings to choose from. We had exceptional service from Sara who went out of her way to help and advise us, and even managed to get us some furniture at short notice to enable us to move into the apartment. Sara was friendly, professional and very patient! She was always very busy, but made time for us whenever we called or visited the show room. Paul was also very helpful and accommodating when we change our minds about our sofas at the last minute! We very much appreciated the help, advice and service provided by Simple Taste.Donalda / 11/11/2015
The experience we have had with 'Simple Taste' from start to finish was really excellent. We had to completely kit out our new apartment we initially thought it would all be quite a daunting task. We were introduced to ST by our estate agent, firstly to Paul the owner and subsequently with Deborah. Deborah expertly steered us through the process, once we had chosen everything we needed she arranged for the fitting and delivery of our selection which included light fittings through to inside and outside furniture and all associated linen, curtains etc.
We would have no problem in recommending 'Simple Taste' and in particular Deborah who looked after us, their service was as good as it gets.Julian and Gillian White / 15/10/2015
Just a short note to say thank you for everything you have done for us . The service we have received from Simple Taste has been exceptional. Delivery was as you said and any problems we had were sorted immediately and on time, everything was left neat and tidy and the fitters were so polite . Thanks again for all your help and hope to see you soon.

"Quando em 2014 comprámos o nosso apartamento em Vilamoura visitámos a Simple Taste a conselho de uma amiga: a ela estamos gratos pela iniciativa! Nesse mesmo dia recebemos, para além do acolhimento simpático e paciente, ideias e sugestões que vieram simplesmente ao encontro do que efectivamente pretendíamos…e foi através de email e das fotografias neles anexadas que as últimas escolhas foram feitas.
Ausentes, deixámos todo o trabalho de instalação à Simple Taste; hesitantes, enviámos pedidos de alteração…e quando voltámos encontrámos exactamente o que tínhamos pedido! A surpresa só não foi total porque - gentileza extrema - fomos recebendo fotografias do apartamento à medida que os trabalhos avançavam. E por isto agradecemos e recomendamos a Simple Taste."M. e R. Bailão / 26/08/2015
"Estimada D. Sara Prino,
É com grande prazer que lhe informamos que estamos imensamente satisfeitos com a decoração da nossa residência principal em Lisboa. A SIMPLE TASTE, e em particular você, D. Sara realizaram um excelente trabalho. E sendo que o nosso caso não era fácil, visto que residíamos, então na Flórida e que tratamos do projeto da decoração do nosso novo apartamento em Lisboa, inicialmente por telefone e seguidamente através de internet. Queríamos um ambiente atualizado mas tinhamos ideias de decoração algo antiquadas. E queríamos integrar alguns móveis e objetos que possuíamos e que têm certo valor sentimental para nós.
Foram necessários além do seu grande profissionalismo e do seu talento de designer, a sua grande capacidade para integrar as nossas vontades, tal como, a sua grande paciência, disponibilidade e grande gentileza para desenvolver o nosso projeto de maneira tão bem sucedida.
Apreciamos muito as linhas de produtos, mobiliário e objetos de casa e de decoração da SIMPLE TASTE, bem actualizados, de boa qualidade, a preços razoáveis e sempre com uma relação preço/valor bem competitiva.
A implementação do projeto decorreu de maneira impecável, respeitando os orçamentos, entrega na data prevista e a instalação foi elaborada por uma equipa muito profissional e simpática.
Estamos muito satisfeitos, o resultado excede as nossas expectativas.
Muito obrigado e parabéns à SIMPLE TASTE e em particular à D. Sara.

"Sara at Simple Taste helped me put the finishing touches in our villa.
Struggling to find the time to shop in the Algarve and sort out exporting furniture Simple Taste provided options and choices for each room, ordered and delivered within a time schedule of 6 weeks all ready for our stay this summer.
I wouldn't hesitate to use their services again.

"The whole experience with Simple Taste was smooth, friendly, relaxed, constructive ideas/suggestions and Sara was so patient!!
My husband actually almost enjoyed spending money; he kept finding new things we 'needed' to furnish our new house from scratch!!"
K. Holman / 19/08/2015
We couldn’t recommend Simple Taste highly enough. From the moment we walked into the showroom Deborah understood our needs and tastes exactly. She worked with us to put together a beautifully co-ordinated furniture range that was sympathetic to the view and aspect of each room, and reflected the luxury finish of our newly completed apartment.
She thought of everything, from the small details of where to place mirrors to maximise light and the accent colours of the soft furnishings, as well as the practicalities that help make the luxury finish child-friendly.
The installation team do everything for you, putting up mirrors, light fittings, towel hooks and curtain rails, and even made the beds and put the cutlery in the drawers, so all we had to do was turn up and enjoy it. It feels like we’re staying in a boutique hotel, the exceptional quality belies the value-for-money price tag – just wish we had a service like this in the UK!
Thanks Deborah & teamSophie & Jonathan Everest / August/2015
A beautiful showroom and great service .....looking forward to coming back to purchase some finishing touches for our lounge.
Mrs Brown, July 2015
Many thanks, I am sitting here now enjoying the wonderful Portuguese sunshine on my lovely new furniture it looks great we are very pleased with it.
Helena"Helena / 29/05/2015
Like doing anything new, setting up our villa in Vila Sol was a daunting task ... Although we'd had an apartment in Vilamoura for 12 years, we knew there was so much to choose for our new home in the sun.... And in a limited time!
All the staff at Simple Taste have been a great help in helping us furnish our recently acquired Algarvian property. Much of our original communication was either by phone or by email from UK but everything worked out marvelously. The quality of the furniture, delivery schedules and installation of the items has been first class and problem-free. Simple Taste have been instrumental in making our property a delightful "home from home".
Roger, May 2015.
Quite honestly, although I only have a 2 bed apartment it was slightly daunting looking for a company that could suit all my needs .. but I need not have worried.. Simple Taste in particular Deborah was amazing from the start, helping me choose the right colours and design right through to delivery and installation all at a competitive price. I am over the moon with all the quality of furniture & fabrics and would have no hesitation in recommending them most highly. If only UK companies would operate in such a professional and timely manner.
Thank you Simple Taste... I will not shop anywhere else.
Thank you all for helping to furnish our apartment. It looks fantastic - we couldn't be happier with the quality and style.
Thanks again!Lorraine & Barry Lorraine & Barry / 21/02/2015
In September 2014 my husband and I purchased a 2 bedroom apartment in Alvor after holidaying in the Algarve for 35 years. Once we had purchased the property it was time to furnish it.
We did lots of research on the internet before we flew out and worked out a route from the airport to Alvor calling at all the stores. We visited several places and came out feeling very deflated, then last on our list was Simple Tastes (not last out of choice but it was last on the route). On walking into the store it was like a breath of fresh air so much choice. After being in the store for around 5 minutes we were asked if we needed any assistance or were we okay to carry on browsing which we did. We then spoke to one of the trained interior designers called Deborah (English speaking so no problems with the translation) she explained that they did a package custom made to our requirements. We made an appointment for the next day which was quite lengthy, we chose everything from all the furniture to the beds rugs curtains etc. . What we found so nice was that all the furniture we choose was custom made in Portugal so was all bespoke. Once we had flown home Deborah went into the apartment and took charge measuring and emailing on a daily basis. After everything was finalised Deborah and her team at Simple Tastes started to fit out the apartment all done in a day and a half, she was emailing pictures of the installation room by room it was so exciting. When we arrived at the apartment we put the key in the door and what we saw was just breath taking and very emotional . The beds were made, the towels in the bathrooms, all crockery in the kitchen and the quality of all the furniture was first class. All ready for us to unpack our suitcases and enjoy our beautiful home which had been created by all the staff at Simple Taste. Just to say Deborah is amazing and has become my right arm in Portugal and a big thankyou to you all for making our dream come true.

"As non residents of the Algarve but having spent the last 20 years with a holiday home there we have always been cautious about big purchases. Keys for us have been people to trust and some assurance as to timely delivery when we are going to be there!
Simple Taste were great when we needed to upgrade our main suite. Good choice. Good price. Good quality. Delivery was ahead of schedule but the really great thing was ST held the goods until we were back in the Algarve. Perfect.
As we upgrade our property we will be back to ST. Everyone was so helpful, especially Deborah."Michael Brown / 31/11/14
"As foreigners completely new to Portugal, and having bought an investment property that needed to be kitted out from top to bottom before we went home, we very much appreciated the all encompassing service that Simple Taste provides.
We spent a pleasant few hours with a personable, knowledgeable designer, who had impeccable taste and a wonderful way of working with us.
We left for home with the promise from Simple Taste that all would be installed, set-up, and ready for occupancy. And that is exactly what happened. We couldn't be more satisfied."
The service we received was excellent. All the staff were so helpful and knowledgeable. Paul even loaned us a sofa until ours was ready for delivery, which eas much appreciated.
Nothing was to much trouble for Andreia. She worked really hard to sort out our complicated order and always kept us informed with suitable delivery dates.
The quality of the furniture is excellent, really good value for money. We doubt that you could beat this quality of furniture and service anywhere in the Algarve. We have no hesitasion in recommending Simple Taste to anyone wanting quality furniture and service with good value for money.
Thanks again for all your help, Andreia, you have been brilliant!
Very best wishes
Sharon and Dave JohnstonSharon and Dave Johnston / 21/11/2014
"The service from Simple Taste was attentive, enthusiastic and accurate. We had several changes to our original itinerary, each time the amended schedules and costings were accurate and prompt.
Delivery was always on time, and phone contact was always to the named person appointed to oversee our requirements. I would have no hesitation in recommending Simple Taste for furniture and household need.
Thank you."John / 03/11/14
My husband and I placed a deposit on property in Eastern Algarve in February 2014. Before leaving Portugal, we visited Simple Taste and were impressed with the styles, ranges and quality of the furniture on sale, and decided then that we would buy our furniture from them.
We did not plan to return to Portugal until the purchase of our apartment was complete, which was scheduled for June. We didn't want to leave our furniture purchase until our return, as we wanted to move into our apartment with everything in place.
In April, we approached Simple Taste stating what our requirements were and Sara Prino became our planner. We sent her a layout plan of our apartment.
She was extremely helpful in showing us what ranges of furniture were available to furnish the apartment throughout. She made suggestions for designs, fabrics, prices, colours, etc, that would be most suitable for our property. This was all done by photographs and e-mail messages.
By the end of April, we had decided exactly what furniture we required, paid a deposit and the furniture was ordered.
At the end of June, we returned to Portugal. The furniture was delivered and installed prior to our arrival. It was a wonderful feeling to open the door of our apartment for the first time to find it fully furnished, with everything in the right place. The choices and styles were perfect, as a result of Sara's expertise.
We visited Simple Taste soon after to pay the outstanding balance, to meet Sara and thank her for the assistance she gave. She then helped us further in the selection of soft furnishings to add the perfect finishing touches.
Our experience of Simple Taste has been excellent, and we wouldn't hesitate in using them again if we had to do it all over again. I would also recommend their services to anyone else doing the same thing as we did.Moira Hutchinson / 02/11/14
"From walking in the showroom to delivering our furniture, Simple Taste could not have been more helpful or reliable.
The sales representative provided answers to all our questions and our furniture was delivered spot on time.
Simple Taste is now our furniture shop of choice. Well done to Paul and his team."Mr. H / Sunset Villas, 6th October 2014
I have been in the apt last week, I have to say it's stunning, the quality of the furniture and decoration is GREAT! You did make my apt look amazing.Kitty - Lisboa / 01/10/14
Nous avons été très bien accueilli dés notre arrivée chez Simple Taste .ils ont su tout de suite quels étaient nos goûts .
A l'aide de l'exposition ,de multiples catalogues et des conseils avisés de la décoratrice nous avons pu choisir nos meubles et toute la décoration.
la décoratrice est venue chez nous pour prendre toutes les mesures et se rendre compte du volume des pièces.
Nous avons pu finaliser l'agencement pièce par pièce et signer le bon de commande.
Après quelques semaines et à notre retour de France, nous avons été émerveillé : tout était installé dans chaque pièces précisément , jusqu'aux lits qui étaient faits, le rendu de la décoration était à la hauteur de notre espérance.
Nous n'avons eu aucune mauvaise surprise, ni dans l'installation, ni dans les délais.. Un grand MERCI à Sara et toute l’équipe Simple Taste.
"In April 2014 my wife and I bought a three bedroomed apartment in the Algarve. We were fortunate enough to have used Simple Taste for our home furnishing solutions. From the outset we were looked after by our personal Simple Taste representative Sara Prino.
Sara , a lovely lady , was a true professional and her advice and help throughout our furnishing experience was invaluable. Nothing was too much trouble for Sara and her Installation Team who were fantastic. Even when the odd problem occurred , Sara and her team sorted them out quickly and efficiently.
You always felt that your best interests were being served and the service was excellent. A big thank you to Sara and her team at Simple Taste , for their efforts. We would definitely use them again. We would not hesitate in recommending their service to anyone".
Thank you Sara and your colleagues for everything that you have done for us.David & Julie Townsley / 05/05/14
