Here since 1986 & loving it. My late husband & I had lived in Togo, Nigeria & Verplank, New York, before discovering the eastern Algarve. After restoring our quinta, Monte Velho, we built Casa Yvonne only 1km further west. My family live in the area. And my partner & I not only enjoy the abundant, informal social life, but the many activities available in this sunny climate. Come join us.

Mary purchased this villa in 1986

Casa Yvonne is located in quiet countryside, yet it is not remote--only 2 kms from Moncarapacho. This village is not only friendly, but has many excellent restaurants.

Walking in the rustic eastern Algarve is especially pleasant as there is plenty of open countryside to enjoy..

LovelyVilla

  • 5 out of 5
We had a wonderful stay at Casa Yvonne.A little chilly in the pool in October but in the Summer will be great.The way the Villa is configured is just so good you can be private if you want to be.The views from the terrace are breathtaking.Everything you could need is in the Villa,we cooked a fair bit and it was good.Hope to return again so relaxing.We did eat at Antonios and really enjoyed it.It is very handy for the Market in Olhio,we could do with one that good at home.Thanks again.

Owner's Response: Thank you Susan,

It was very thoughtful of you to write a review for your stay in Casa Yvonne.
It means so much to us to know you enjoyed your holiday there.

As you say, the pool was cool in October, but the countryside is delightful for long walks--and the beach. Yesterday we took a long walk on the islands off Olhao. We walked from Colatra to Farol--not a sole in sight for the whole mile or so. Then had a tasty fish lunch before catching the ferry back. A must, the next time you visit.

Kind regards,
Mary, Richard & Treasa

Lovely villa in beautiful setting.

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed at Casa Yvonne for a family holiday. With 3 bedrooms& 2 bathrooms there was plenty of room for everyone.
The villa is quiet & peaceful with lovely views & the owner & her family really were very friendly & helpful, they made us feel very welcome.

Loved the thoughtfulness of the bread, butter,ham,cheese etc on our arrival, certainly not expected but such a nice gesture.

My 8 yr old loved the ping pong table & a lot of fun was had with this.

The kitchen was well equipped with all you need on holiday, we especially loved the citrus juicer & big bowl of oranges left for us to make delicious fresh orange each morning.

You certainly need a car however you are only a short drive from restaurants & the beautiful sandy beaches.

We had an amazing holiday at this lovely villa & couldn't recommend it highly enough.

A Portugese idyll

  • 5 out of 5
I spent a beautifull week staying in Casa Yvonne. It was a mainly female holiday for those of us in a book group who went out fo the Algarve for Spring sunshine and book discussion. The sun did come out and the countryside sparkled with all the lush grass and Spring flowers.
Casa Yvonne proved spacious and very comfortable. The bedroom arrangements are perfect for privacy especially as there are two bathrooms. I have to mention that the bed linen in the twin bedded room overlooking the pool is really pretty too!

The pool is an excellent size and there is a terrace which iwe much enjoyed sitting on at breakfast and then later on ideal for barbeques.
For those who felt energetic there is a games room with a table tennis table too
Inside the villa , the living arrangements were perfect for sitting aournd when it was dark and not warm enough to be outside. At one time 8 of us sat round the lovely big dining room table and chatted and drank 2 Euro wine which went down a treat!
The location of the villa is excellent being in the middle of the Portugese unspoiled countryside but near eniough to the town so that one could get out and about easily-
I would highly recommend this villa.

Perfect stay at Casa Yvonne

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed one month at Casa Yvonne and found it very hard to leave. The villa offers everything you are looking for including a view to the seaside. It is very quite and in the middle of the nature. Perfect for us as we are passionate cyclists. We discovered new routes every day. Mary and her family are extremely friendly and helpful and they made sure that we enjoyed our stay.
We recommend Casa Yvonne to everybody who is looking to live in a quite and beautiful area.

Close to Beaches in Quiet Countryside - Comfortably Sleeps 6 + cot

Casa Yvonne is a spacious, south-facing private villa, nestled in large grounds, superbly located, affording complete privacy & superb sea & country views. The access is easy, as the track was surfaced in 2012.

The nearest village Moncarapacho is 2kms east--a friendly market town with an attractive church square where you can enjoy an excellent meal &/or drink with the locals, at reasonable prices (far lower than the West of Faro). Here you will also find banks, pharmacy, 4 mini markets, one of which is open til 20:00.

Fuzeta is our nearest beach, just 8km south. Take a 10-min. ferry ride to the island & enjoy crowd free beaches.

Olhao is the largest fishing port in the Algarve & only 8kms south. Visit the fish market & sample the day's catch at O Bote or any of the superb restaurants along the marina.

Estoi is 8kms west & is worth visiting for it's recently restored Palace, & the Roman ruins of Milreu.

Tavira is 20 minutes east & the most picturesque town in the Eastern Algarve, with many excellent restaurants.

Internet is available.

Note: Casa Yvonne now has Table Tennis.

Notes:
The villa is ideal for a family holiday, or a quiet get-away for the adults. The most common comment in the Guest Book is how quiet & peaceful Casa Yvonne is. The open-plan layout of the villa makes it light & airy. The polished quarry-tiled floors lend a warm & welcoming air. The vista from the villa & patios is one of serene countryside with sea view. The villa is maintained by a most capable & reliable couple who live nearby.
