Casa Crow is a wonderfully equipped and tranquil villa.
There is plenty of space for two families, there was 6 of us but 8 could quite easily have stayed.
Lucy and her team were a delight to deal with and the welcome pack was a nice touch and well appreciated.
I would suggest a car is essential, although Uber is available and they are able to find it using location rather than address (just make sure you have it saved for the return trip)
Any (very few and small) problems were dealt with very quickly and efficiently.
The new kitchen is fantastic, lots of space, storage and well stocked. There are two fridges which really help, and save trips to the supermarket. (Continetel ~10mins, Apolonia ~15mins) Apolonia is recommended. There is also an outside fridge by the BBQ.
Around the outskirts of Almancil, you will also find some fabulous restaurants.
For some reason there were a lot of wasps (not normally an issue). We found keeping the outdoor space clean and using Citronella candles (in buckets) very effective.
The pool (heated) was used day and night, really big and deep too.
There is a wonderful roof terrace which we made good use of, the BBQ (Gas and Charcoal) is a great size, with plenty of seating and beds around the pool.
The Table Tennis Table also got good use (might be worth bringing your own bats and balls)
WiFi was quick and plenty of coverage. Lots and lots of TV Channels although we rarely had it on.
A really good villa, which more than helped make it a great holiday. I'm sure we will return soon.
We had the most fantastic time staying in this wonderful villa. The owners Eddy and Annick have furnished their beautiful villa to a very high standard. The villa has everything that you need. All the towels, kitchen equipment, extra blankets etc all available for use. So nice to have more than 6 plates, cups, forks etc!!! The villa was wonderful but the outside space was beautiful. Little seating areas everywhere with comfortable chairs and cushions.. You can choose to sit in the sun or the shade.. The pool was a good size and everything was so well maintained. The owners use a company that are there on hand to help you should you need it and answer any questions. A car is required for this villa.. You are then free to explore the nearby towns but also visit the many beaches. Eddy and Annick are such generous hosts as everything in the villa is made available for you. We have had many experiences with villas where the owners only leave the bare essentials for the use of the holiday maker.. They also left us a welcome gift of a delicious rose wine.. Thanks to Eddy and Annick for sharing their most wonderful villa. We would definitely consider staying there again when we are next in the Algarve.
