This property is really nice, the location is convenient too. It's separate from the owners house with it's own access and terrace and patio. The pool and outdoor areas are beautiful and private. The owners are friendly and helpful, completely unobtrusive. Probably best to hire a car to get around but shops for groceries/essentials and restaurants are within a mile or two, easily walkable. All in all, very good, recommended.
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.
