Suggestions: For the gourmet traveler just 6.5 km away near the village of Armacao de Pera you can find the famous restaurant with two Michelin stars' The Ocean 'located in the Vila Vita Parc resort, and 20 kilometers away, the restaurant' Vila Joya 'this too with 2 Michelin stars. You are still a step away from the Autodromo Internacional do Algarve (30 Km) where you can watch a race, try a track day or drive a kart. Or you can go diving and explore the three warships sunk just 10 Km away near Alvor.

Fantastic villa

  • 5 of 5

We have visited Casa Zophia three timess and loved every single minute, the villa is amazing, the grounds immaculate and the pool is the icing on the cake, the improvements made between our 2nd and 3rd visits just made our holiday even better, we have been lucky enough to meet both the owners and you couldn't ask for nicer people, we would not hesitate in recommending Casa Zophia to friends and family.

Stunning villa - great holiday

  • 5 of 5

Great Villa - first class facilities and very private. The children loved the pool - would have stayed in all day. Everything you needed for a relaxing holiday in the sun. Real attention to detail. Great support from Pedro. He was on hand with advice about the villa, where to eat, where to visit etc. Great location for exploring. Couldn't fault - five stars from us.

Wonderful Holiday, Wonderful Villa!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third visit to the Lagoa, Carvoeiro area. We had a great feeling the moment we drove through the gates of Casa Zophia. It was very, peaceful and completely secluded.

Ana who looks after the villa was very helpful and gave us a few local tips when we arrived.

The kitchen was equipped with all modern appliances and we found the ice cube maker extremely useful. Everything was there and it didn’t take long to get settled in. There was a clean and fresh feeling both inside and outside the villa.

Most of the day was spent in the pool and patio areas. We also enjoyed the home cinema and were able to link up our mobiles to hear music in the patio and pool area.

We enjoyed our visit to the beaches of Albandeira and Marinha. There are numerous restaurants at the seaside area of Carvoeiro only a few minutes away.

There are many supermarkets in the area. We were happy to use Intermarche which was only a few minutes away. Casa Zophia is a fantastic holiday villa. We loved it and hope to visit again!

Beautiful Villa

  • 5 of 5

We have visited the Algarve many times and have stayed in some super properties, but Casa Zophia is the best yet. The setting is spectacular: really secluded with the most beautiful grounds and the salt water pool is wonderful. We valued the wide range of outdoor spaces and there were plenty of options when we were in need of shade. The villa is extremely well equipped - when we had another family join us for dinner, making a party of nine, we were all comfortably accommodated. Finally we must comment on how impressed we were with Pedro and Ana. They were so welcoming when we arrived in the early hours (after a long flight delay) and when we had questions during our stay in each case Pedro responded swiftly. We enjoyed a superb two week holiday and have already booked our 2016 stay at Casa Zophia.

Fabulous villa

  • 5 of 5

Spacious, comfortable, clean, well equipped villa set in wonderful grounds. We enjoyed a very relaxed fortnight here with our 3 children in August.

The villa itself is large and cool, and the kitchen is equipped with everything you could need (even including baking equipment). The home cinema was great for a family movie after lunch when it was too hot out (for us!), so bring your DVDs with you.

The swimming pool and garden was perfect - lots of different eating areas to find either sun or shade through the day, and plenty of grass for the kids to play when they weren't swimming or relaxing in the hammock.

There are 2 restaurants within walking distance, both of which were family friendly and the chefs were very accommodating if you have special dietary requirements. 2 large supermarkets within 5 mins drive supplying all you could want, and 3 lovely picturesque beaches with safe bathing for kids within 10 mins (which were busy in August but not crammed).

Pedro and Ana were very welcoming and helpful throughout our stay, acting promptly when an air conditioning unit needed fixing and very helpful when we needed a local doctor.

5 stars, highly recommended and we'll be back!

Family stayed June/July 2015

  • 5 of 5

As a family we have stayed in a number of Villas in the Algarve and this is without doubt the best ever. We felt very comfortable and at home in the villa which has all the facilities and equipment you could possible need. Pedro Ana and Jimi (The dog) were lovely during the whole process of initial enquiry, the villa booking meeting on arrival and departure.

The location of the villa was quite whilst being close to lots of restaurants and beaches.

Without doubt I would recommend a stay at the villa and will almost certain be back again given the opportunity.
