Clean, tidy, private and beautiful location.
We stayed for a week and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The view from the pool was wonderful and we had it to ourselves. The house was clean and and had all the facilities you would want and more. We arrived late in the day and so Krysia kindly bought some provisions for us to tide us over the first night and morning. Would highly recommend.
Charming Rural Portuguese Hideaway
We loved our stay in Casa Loueira, it was much better in real life than the photos suggested, and we expected it to be really nice! Beautiful courtyard when you arrive in front of the house, with an old bench, a sundial and a big fig tree in the middle, so pretty and welcoming, and inside we were delighted with every room, and every little terrace with seating, there are lots of places to relax, and a lovely upstairs terrace with dining table and chairs near the kitchen with trees and lovely views all round. The casa was furnished simply and beautifully, with lovely tiles, wall hangings and rugs everywhere, very spacious and old wooden shutters on all the windows. Bathrooms and showers were great, and the living room is very comfortable and there is a great big smart TV with netflix etc available to sign in to. There is a little stone path down to the large lovely pool with fantastic views to the sea over the hills, it is very clean and there are loungers and parasols, and it is nice and private in the pool and beside it. We loved it, and definitely want to come back, it is so peaceful and laid back, and we also loved Fatcat who kept us company and amused us by doing somersaults when stroked. We enjoyed the outdoor pool table and bbq and beds are comfy. We love the area, we have stayed nearby often, so know where to go to eat, there are nice restaurants nearby. The local people are friendly and helpful. Thanks so much Krysia, we would love to come back.
Thank you for your lovely and detailed review. You will be welcome back any time!
Spacious, clean and well equipped
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.
Thanks for your kind review; very pleased to hear you enjoyed Loureiro. Krysia
We have just returned from a wonderful two week stay at this beautiful house in the hills above Santa Barbara De Nexe. We were warmly welcomed by Krysia and Russell who were then on hand to help us with anything we needed but were never intrusive. Not that we needed anything as the accommodation and facilities are top notch! There was everything we needed for a very comfortable stay. The gardens are pretty and the pool was wonderful, largest pool we've ever had at a villa and as for the view from the pool area.........just magnificent!!
Krysia is the font of all knowledge of the local area and places to see and restaurants to eat at so do take her advice! Sadly the weather was not the best for the first week but the second it was fabulous and the pool got a lot of use. In summary we had one of the best villa holidays we have ever had. So much so that before we left we booked with Krysia for the same two weeks next year, can't give a better recommendation than that!!
Get away from it all holiday!
This villa "Does what it says on the tin"! The villa is away from all the hussle & bussle of the Algarve but within reach by car if you wanted it. Located in the hills north of Faro, it is a quiet & rural area.
The villa is well furnished with everything you need & the pool is fantastic. We spent most of the holiday relaxing around the pool.
The town of Santa Barbara De Nexe is a 2Km walk away & has shops/pubs/cafes/resturants. There is also a small grocery shop & cafe a short walk away.
We did not hire a car for this holiday. Krysia & Russell, who live next door, kept themselves to themselves but were very helpful should we have any questions or want to go anywhere.
We would highly recommend this villa if you wanted to relax!
The Perfect Holiday
We have been holidaying in the Algarve for many years but haven’t found anywhere we love as much as Loureiro, so much so we have been back 3 times!
The villa is set in a beautiful and peaceful location which has a really rural feel to it and yet is only a couple of minutes drive from the nearby village of Santa Barbara de Nexe. The fig and damson trees in the courtyard were a nice surprise on arrival and we enjoyed ‘picking our own’ for the duration of our stay. Both the bedrooms are of a very good size and we found the air-conditioning to be most welcome, especially during the summer months when the weather is fabulous. A fantastic feature is the 2 bathrooms which proved very useful when getting ready to go out for the evening as we have two girls in the family! Upstairs is a comfortable lounge and you can while away the hours watching the local birdlife flitting about the treetops through the shuttered windows. The kitchen is well equipped and we found it to be perfect for making picnics to take to the pool with us. It is also well placed to make alfresco eating on the roof terrace a stress free affair – perfect for breakfast. Although there are plenty of excellent restaurants in and around Santa Barbara we also liked to make use of the BBQ at the house and dine on the roof terrace in the evenings as well. Watching the sun go down and the stars come out, with a glass of wine in hand, is the perfect end to the day.
The pool is a short walk through the lovely gardens and is of a great size, our daughter would have spent the whole day playing in the pool if she could. There are plenty of sun loungers available so it’s great for big kids as well as the little ones! The view from the pool out to the coast is simply stunning and worth booking for alone.
The village of Santa Barbara is well equipped with supermarket, bank, post office, pharmacy, bars and café’s but we also really enjoyed the fact that there are a couple of small stores and bars within walking distance of the house. It’s very relaxing to sit, with a drink or an ice-cream, and watch the world go by – just as the locals do.
Krysia, the owner, is charming and has a wealth of knowledge about the local area which she will happily share with you. We found her to be very friendly and helpful, she even lent us books to read during our stay.
All in all Loureiro is to be highly recommended, it really is the perfect holiday and we can’t wait to go back.
Santa Barbara is a large village with everything that one needs: a bank and post office, a medical centre, supermarket and several bars, cafes and restaurants, including an Italian restaurant with live music and a Rock Bar with live music on Saturdays.
Transport to and from the village can be provided on request.
