Clean, well presented, well equipped and very funky

5 of 5
The property is in a lovely rural location, central to some very exciting and interesting historical places and less than an hour to some fantastic beaches famed for watersports. The house was beautiful, clean and well equipped, the pool was welcome respite from the hot weather and the vegetable and herb garden was a lovely touch. Would definitely recommend for a couple or adventurous family who are looking for a great base for sightseeing in a quiet, rural relaxed place.

A Gold Star in the Silver Coast

5 of 5
The owner was there to meet our friends and ourselves on arrival at this beautifully furnished and comfortable villa.Casa Bianca is the best equipped and maintained villa we have stayed at. We loved relaxing sitting out on the new balcony overlooking the picture perfect location. The owner arranged our return taxi transfer from Lisbon Airport with a very reliable and friendly driver, who also assisted with the collection of our hire car. My husband enjoyed walking around the glorious countryside around, whilst the rest of our party found ample areas to relax and "chill out " around the villa. We all enjoyed the friendly service, good wholesome cooking and reasonable priced meals found at the Restaurant on top of the hill at Santa Helena. We all felt at home in Casa Bianca and thoroughly enjoyed our break. I would highly recommend this villa to friends and family.
