I booked this holiday for a family holiday (9 adults) and it was absolutely perfect. Carlos was very attentive and he responded to all my queries prior to my arrival in a very timely manner.
Carlos met us when we arrived and introduced us to the villa and the surrounding spaces.
Location: fifteen drive from Faro airport, but in a quiet area close to supermarkets.
The villa: the villa was absolutely perfect. The rooms were spacious and the bathrooms were very modern. The living room area was large and we could all enjoy the space comfortably together. The kitchen was a great size and was well equipped to cater for the 9 adults staying, as well as cooking lots of food too. The fridge freezer was spacious and there was an additional freezer too, which was helpful.
The garden space was beautiful. Large and open and accommodated everyone comfortable - plenty of sunshine to enjoy too! The swimming pool was also a good size and was all very clean.
The farm: the best part of this holiday was exploring the grounds. We spent most of our days walking in the grounds, picking fruit and exploring. We were lucky enough to have oranges, figs, avocados and grapes during our visit. There are plenty of animals in the grounds too, as well as Carlos' two large (but friendly!) dogs.
The grounds: We played tennis and enjoyed the gym, as well as cycled around the grounds using the bicycles that Carlos has available at the premises. It was great fun to all cycle round and race together! Carlos has also created a lovely bar/play area for smaller children, which the adults made full use of! The bar is a great touch and meant that you could have a few drinks, whilst playing snooker and mini golf.
Carlos hires out the play area for parties, but this was not a problem, despite there being three events during our stay. Villas are closed off and so you can continue to enjoy the quiet space.
All in all my family and I would highly recommend this villa. It is clean, spacious and has everything you need plus more. Carlos and his wife were very accommodating and extremely helpful in answering questions before and during our trip. This is the perfect villa for a family holiday and you will not be disappointed if you book.
If we ever find ourselves in Faro again, we will definitely be staying at this Villa again - just perfect!
Thank you Carlos for your hospitality and for going out of your way to make this family holiday a very enjoyable one :)
We had a wonderful stay at the Casa Helandria. It’s a fantastic size with a beautiful garden / pool area. It’s quiet without feeling too isolated and in great proximity to get to the beach, Almancil town center and local golf courses.
Andy was a pleasure to deal with and was very communicative, he was kind enough to let us stay beyond our checkout time so that we could enjoy the pool rather than waiting at the airport!
We would thoroughly recommend the villa and can’t wait to head back next Summer.
