The house was spacious and clean. The bedrooms were lovely - all large and plenty of space for at least 2 families. The kitchen was a bit tired although had everything you would need. The only thing I would say is you will need to take all your own cleaning products, washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets, bin liners etc as there were no supplies (some rental places we have been to in the past provide these).
The outdoor space was lovely - the pool was a good size and the sandpit was an added bonus for the children.
In terms of the area, it is very quiet and secluded but within 20 minutes drive of a small town and 10 minutes drive to the nearest beach (may be more vibrant in summer months). My husband surfed every day and the location was perfect. Very good restaurants near by (Sector B burgers on route to Arrifana and the pizzeria are good as is the See You Surf Cafe just above Arrifana beach).
Casa Bella is a fantastic villa, perfectly located close to several beautiful beaches.
The villa comes equipped with everything you could possibly need, and more! The owners have gone above and beyond to ensure guests have an amazing holiday experience, providing everything from cling film, hand soap and condiments in the kitchen, to a cool box, sun umbrella and wetsuits for the beach!!
The private pool and the garden were absolutely lovely, but my favourite place was the roof terrace, a great place to spend an evening looking at the stars and enjoying a glass (or 2!) of the local wine.
There are several bars / restaurants and a small supermarket all within easy walking distance, with many more excellent restaurants and larger supermarkets within a short drive.
We had a perfect week away, and would highly recommend this villa!
