Hi Andreia

We received our sofa today and it looks absolutely gorgeous in our sunroom.

Thank You so much for all your help and the packing was excellent for the removal from you to us.

Thank You again and see you next time where in Portugal

Just a quick email to let you know that the TV stand worked out great.
I also wanted to let you know that installation team were very good and assisted in getting a couple of adjustments made to allow wires to pass through with great politeness - they were excellent. Please let their supervisor know.

Greetings Deborah,

Once again, thank you for the wonderful customer care. The delivery was timely and efficient.

The chairs exceeded expectation, thank you.

With Kindest Regards,

Good morning Mariana,

Just to inform you that the assembly has already been done and that I loved the final result! It was just like what I had seen in Pinterest! : D
The headboard was higher than I had originally planned, but as I'll put on cushions, it will disguise the height and we will continue to see the buds.

Thank you also to the assembly team, they were mega professionals.

Thank you for all the attention!

I’m from Dublin, Ireland, and called into your outlet yesterday in Almancil to buy two sitting room suites for our Villa in Villamoura.

Met a lovely assistant and she was most helpful.

Hi Mariana,

Thank you for the photos, we are very happy with the look of the furniture, it all seems to work well together. After changing our minds a little, I think the dining chairs we chose work well with the table, thank you for thinking of that style and colour. We are very happy with the service we received from you and your colleagues at Simple Taste.

Kind regards

E. D. / 31-01-2019

Excellent experience from start to finish. Simple Taste helped me with my newly built T3 apartment. Always good advice, even from the guys who came to measure my windows. Good ideas and very helpful team all over. I can strongly recommend this company.

Jacques / 03-09-2018

Just a note to say a huge thank you to Deborah and the team at Simple Taste. I was introduced to them via Ideal Homes after buying a holiday home in Portugal and after what I expected to be a very difficult time consuming job , Deborah made it seem easy. Our furniture is modern and contemporary, just what we asked for and very good quality.To say I am delighted with the end result would be an understatement. Don’t hesitate if you are looking for great service from start to finish.


Barbara / 30-08-2018

Just a short note to say how pleased my wife and I are with the lounge furniture and beds delivered today. Now our new home in Portugal is complete. Thanks for your support.

Tara Wright / 04-06-2018

I'm a very fussy shopper; therefore, prior to moving to the Algarve I spent a great deal of time on-line looking for furniture. I was happy to find Simple Taste after weeks of searching and coming up short. I asked for help and Andreia responded quickly. She helped me choose the right furniture on-line and then I visited Andreia and the showroom. No other furniture store or interior designers compare in the Algarve. Andreia is helpful and patient and Simple Taste offers beautiful contemporary furniture and they deliver free to Algarve customers. I am very pleased that I went with Simple Taste to furnish my home.

Christopher Papagni / 29-05-2018

Fantastic team. Andreia especially to you, thank you for your attention, availability and above all your sympathy. I recommend Simple Taste to all who want a 5 star accompaniment, from the choice of furniture / decoration to the delivery at home. Thank you for your professionalism.

Natascha / 07/12/2017

Thanks to Deborah and everyone at Simple Taste.  They carried out the re-upholstering of some tired sofa and dining chair cushions to bring our apartment’s furniture all back to life.  All for a very reasonable cost and within a good timescale.  The quality of the material and standard of workmanship is all first class.  Thanks again

Morning Deborah

Just to say we are thrilled with everything and I mean everything!! When we arrived at 1am this morning we just walked around for ages and I'm pretty sure there's nothing that fails expectations. Then we collapsed and had a lovely sleep ha!  Thanks so much for organising everything and delivering on time. The design and quantity is excellent. Very very pleased.

Dear Simple Taste,

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 

Yonne & Brian Roden / 11/02/2017

I had the best nights sleep in ages last night....thank you so much Simple Taste, the quality of your products is outstanding. I'm pleased with everything that we bought and the drivers were great. I'd recommend you.

Sharon Clarke / 23/11/2016

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. Simple Taste'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.

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

We were introduced to Simple Taste in October 2015 after putting on offer on a 5 bedroom house which was being constructed. Much imagination was needed by all as we looked at a concrete structure but we could already see potential and a wonderful light and space. We met Simple Taste and started working on interior ideas, furniture, colours and fabrics. Simple Taste has the most amazing eye for detail and colour. They completely understood our own taste but gently steered us to try something a little out of our comfort zone and more in keeping with the Algarve and outdoor lifestyle. The furniture has been installed slowly over the last few months as the house reached completion and we now just have a few outstanding outside pieces to complete our new home. The result is stunning. We love everything about it and it is also very functional, workable and although modern still manages to feel cosy.

Many thanks to the whole team. As well as Simple Taste, the guys who installed, Isabel in accounts and everyone else in the showroom who always give us such a warm welcome.

Jackie, Alfred and all the family / 26/10/16

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, Nuzhat

Nuzhat / 08/09/16

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!

Liza 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 & Elaine

Thomas Worthington / 11/08/16

Hi Andreia,

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.

Cheers, Steve

Steve Izatt / 11/08/16

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, Anne

Anne Hluschyk / 03/08/16

Dear Deborah,

Many many thanks for your absolute and utter professionalism, we would most definitely recommend your services to anybody.

Dear Andreia,

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.

Alan / 04/07/16

Simple Taste were recommended to us by friends. From the outset Simple Taste, quickly identified our needs and tastes which interpreted into a very pleasing result. Their 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.

Hello Simple Taste,

My husband and I are completely satisfied with the service provided by Simple Taste. The result was beyond our expectations. Deadline respected and work done impeccably.

Thank you very much

Michèle Luc / 02/06/16

Dear Simple Taste,

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 Simple Taste 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 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 Simple Taste was there to guide us with choice of colour, textures etc. Very patient as they 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, they persuaded me that it would all look lovely.  They were 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 Simple Taste, however, they produced something truly special and stunning. Their eye for colour, detail and choices of fabrics  is natural and all her suggestions have proved successful. 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, Simple Taste was polite, informative, forever helpful and, even when I asked them to change the colour scheme for one of the bedrooms (not because I didn’t like their choices, but because I wanted it to be in a more unisex colour), tey painstakingly produced another beautiful scheme with lovely soft furnishings. They never put us under any pressure to choose quickly or tried to force the sale. 

It was a real pleasure dealing with them 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 Simple Taste again and also to Marco and his team for their polite and professional manner during the delivery and fitting service.

B & G

B & 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.

Regards, Jim, Janette and Louise.

Jim, Janette & Louise / 13/05/16

Dear Deborah,

We would like to inform you that we receive all the furnitures we order in perfect shape. We have to make our best compliments for the excellent service of your company and especially for the very professional and kind attitude of the two man who have install the furnitures in our house. In Switzerland, we are not use to receive such kind of perfect service, for this reasons we like to express our full satisfaction.

Kind regards and see you soon, Roberto & Odette

Roberto & Odette / 03/02/16

Deborah and the team at Simple Taste made furnishing a 4 bedroom townhouse such an easy and pleasant and professional experience. From the moment I visited the showroom and met Deborah I knew she understood my style and requirements. The rest of the process was done long distance by email. And the result was outstanding ! It was the easiest design and installment project. The quality was great and everything was in place when we arrived for a short holiday in our new home in Algarve. Kitchenware, towels, toaster, linens ... Everything we needed was right there in its right place without us having to drive around for weeks shopping for stuff needed for the house. 

Big thank you to Simple Taste for turning our house into our home.

Noura / 23/12/2015

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 Simple Taste who went out of their 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. Simple Taste were friendly, professional and very patient! They were always very busy, but made time for us whenever we called or visited the showroom. 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.


Jackie / 25/09/2015

From the moment we were recommended Simple Taste we haven’t looked back. Completely re-furnishing a new property was a daunting prospect for us. However Deborah and her team helped us all the way. From recommending colour schemes to visiting our home to measure up, every need was catered for with unbelievably high service.

If only they were based in the United Kingdom too.

Thanks, Sunil

Sunil Patel / 22/09/2015

When we bought our apartment in Vilamoura in 2014 we visited Simple Taste on the advice of a friend: we are grateful for the initiative! On that same day we received, besides the friendly and patient welcome, ideas and suggestions that came simply to the way we intended ... and it was through email and the photographs that the last choices were made.

Absent, we left all the installation work to Simple Taste; hesitant, we sent in change requests ... and when we got back we found exactly what we had asked for! The surprise was not entirely complete because - extremely kindly - we were receiving photographs of the apartment as the work progressed. And for this we thank and recommend Simple Taste.

M. e R. Bailão / 26/08/2015

Dear Simple Taste,

It is with great pleasure that we inform you that we are immensely satisfied with the decoration of our main residence in Lisbon. SIMPLE TASTE has done an excellent job. And since our case was not easy, since we lived in Florida, and we dealt with the design of the decoration of our new apartment in Lisbon, initially by telephone and then through the internet. We wanted an upgraded environment but we had decorating ideas somewhat outdated. And we wanted to integrate some furniture and objects that we had and that have some sentimental value for us.

In addition to his great professionalism and his talent as a designer, his great ability to integrate our wants, as well as his great patience, availability and great kindness to develop our project so successfully.

We greatly appreciate the SIMPLE TASTE product lines, furniture and home and decoration objects, well updated, good quality, reasonably priced and always with a very competitive price / value ratio. The implementation of the project was impeccable, respecting the budgets, delivery on schedule and the installation was prepared by a very professional and friendly team. We are very satisfied, the result exceeds our expectations. Thank you very much and congratulations to SIMPLE TASTE.

Fernando and Guillermina Santos

Fernando e Guillermina Santos / 23/08/2015

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, Julie Ward

Julie Ward / 21/08/2015

The whole experience with Simple Taste was smooth, friendly, relaxed, constructive ideas/suggestions and they were 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 & team

Sophie & Jonathan Everest / August/2015

A beautiful showroom and great service .....looking forward to coming back to purchase some finishing touches for our lounge.

Hi Deborah,

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.

Regards, 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! I found Simple Taste online... and all I really had to go on was the feedback from other happy customers. Thank goodness I did. I chose well. 

From our first handshake with Deborah, through the entire choosing and furnishing process, the service was top drawer .... Nothing seems too much trouble and we were given as much time as we wanted to discuss colours , finishes and styles ... We were even offered coffee every visit ... The delivery guys were lovely , and again, did what they said they would do! Their after care proves they do care about the quality of their service ... 

So, in a nutshell ...Simple Taste made it easy for us. I would gladly recommend them to anyone who is buying in Portugal. I, for one, wouldn't waste time looking anywhere else!


Caroline / May/2015

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

It is a very unnerving process of buying and furnishing a home especially when you are not living in the country. From seeing your goods in the showroom but then having to leave the country where everything is conducted via email / telephone  could have been a harrowing time but thanks to Deborah and the Simple Taste team for the excellent advise and service given to us the process was smooth and trouble free. The time scale was exactly as advised and we were kept informed all the way through. Thank you again Simple Taste you are highly recommended and we will be seeing you again very soon.

Mr & Mrs Thompson

Mr & Mrs Thompson / April/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.

Thankyou, Sharon

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.

I chose Simple Taste as their website (and especially the Portfolio section) seemed similar to my taste, and the prices seemed reasonable.

Simple Taste visited me at my new apartment in Lisbon, and after a lot of exchanges of email, we arrived at a design, and selection of furniture I liked.  Although I know what I like, I find it very hard to pull together design, so Simple Taste's help was invaluable.

A few weeks later the decorators, and furniture arrived.  The team were very professional, and completed everything in the 2 days that Simple Taste had told me it would take.  

I’ve now lived here a couple of months, and must say I’m very very pleased with everything. It’s much better than I could have done on my own, and the saving of effort in using a one-stop-shop was immense.  It went in 2 days from a shell of an apartment to a home.

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 Johnston

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.

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 became our planner. We sent them a layout plan of our apartment. They were extremely helpful in showing us what ranges of furniture were available to furnish the apartment throughout. They 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.

We visited Simple Taste soon after to pay the outstanding balance and to thank them for the assistance they gave. They 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.

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.

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.

The rental rate is also very positive, all the guests just love it. I want to thank you again for all your great work. If I need to decorate my another apt I will definitely contact you or recommend you to my other friends.

Thank you Paul! Really appreciated. Cheers, Kitty

We were very well received when we arrived at Simple Taste. They knew immediately what our tastes were. With the help of the exhibition, multiple catalogs and expert advice from the decorator we were able to choose our furniture and all the decoration. The decorator came to us to take all the measurements and realize the volume of the pieces. We were able to finalize the arrangement piece by piece and sign the order form.

After a few weeks and on our return from France, we were amazed: everything was installed in each room precisely, even the beds that were made, the rendering of the decoration was up to our expectations. We did not have any bad surprises, neither in the installation, nor in the deadlines .. A big THANK YOU to the whole Simple Taste team.

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.

They were true professionals and their advice and help throughout our furnishing experience was invaluable. Nothing was too much trouble for them and their Installation Team who were fantastic. Even when the odd problem occurred , they 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 all the 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 Simple Taste for everything that you have done for us.
