Beautiful hillside views with huge living space and lovely pool

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for two weeks this summer and really enjoyed Casa la Vista Magica.

In the first week it was just the four of us and we enjoyed relaxing days in the pool, trips to the water park and down to Quinta de Lago for dinner.

In the second week we had another family of five (including a 8 month old in the cot) join us. On recommendation we descended on Ancao beach en masse and enjoyed late lunches at Hamburgeria Casavostra and Pizzeria Casavostra (which were both great for the children and adults alike).

During the late afternoons back at the villa the kids played boules, snooker, table tennis or swam and after dinner on the terrace and kids in bed it was lovely to sit out with a drink and play poker in the breeze.

We enjoyed seeing a bit more of the local feel, from visiting the covered market to buy chilli jam, doughnuts on the beach or lovely Maria the cleaner who was in pretty much every other day helping keep the place clean (while we just had to keep it tidy to let her do her work).

A great stay and one to return to again. Thanks Andrew

Perfect Villa for a Perfect Holiday Destination

  • 5 of 5

First time at Vista Magica. As mentioned by previous reviewers, photos don’t do it justice. An idyllic spot with breath taking views. The Villa is extremely spacious and designed to ensure that no one gets on top of each other. Being the designated cook ….I was amazed at how well the kitchen was stocked up, all the utensils one would need. To be honest the whole Villa had everything one would need …the best compliment I can give …It was a home from home. Would definitely recommend to anyone who wants a holiday with a lovely Villa that will only add to the relaxed beauty of The Algarve.

A holiday for all

  • 5 of 5

A holiday with a WOW factor, the photos really don’t do it justice! For several years my family and I have stayed at the villa Vista Magica and each year it still produces that WOW moment. The villa is beautiful, stylish and spacious, surrounded by lovely landscaped gardens. It is suitable for all generations and has something for everyone, and if everyone’s happy then it makes for a good holiday.

There is snooker, table tennis, darts, Sky television, assorted games, a bookcase full of books , the now essential WIFI and, of course, an inviting looking swimming pool. Near the pool is the BBQ area with plenty of seating. The various balconies are also a great place to relax and have a few drinks!

The villa was fully equipped with everything we needed, and the housework was done for us by two friendly maids (they came in 2-3 times a week). The villa is a bit out of the way but it only took us about 10 minutes to get into Loule, a lovely old-fashioned town with a good range of restaurants and supermarkets. It has its own daily market too, where you can buy fresh fruit and vegetables, tasty cakes, and sardines for the BBQ. We were also close by to the waterpark and a number of excellent beaches, good for keeping the kids happy.

All in all, it’s a great place to go for a relaxing holiday. We’ll happily be returning again next year.

A lovely Holiday

  • 4 of 5

We all had a lovely time at your villa, plenty of room for three families. 6 adults 5 children. Fantastic grounds and very comfortable. All our queries and questions were answered promptly and honestly. The villa is away from it all but within an easy car ride from the town. The villa made us feel like lottery winners for a while pretending it was ours. Thanks for a very comfortable easy holiday. I would definately recommend it for a relaxing home from home with everthing you could wish for provided.

Another great holiday at Vista Magica

  • 5 of 5

We have been to Vista Magica for the last three years and it has been the perfect holiday for us. The villa is very large with great facilities, a lovely garden and a large pool. We particularly enjoyed the games room with it's full size snooker table and table tennis. We also made good use of the barbeque area by the pool. Vista Magica is located in a lovely, quiet position, but only minutes by car to the town of Loule, and only 15 minutes drive to Vilamoura, Quarteria beach and 'Aquashow'. The villa is kept spotlessly clean and the owner is very accommodating.

A wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We've had a great time in this lovely and spacious villa near Loulé. The house is very clean, all the bedrooms have their own bathrooms, the rooms are very spacious and everything you need is there. When we arrived (on a sunday) there were lots of groceries for the first day. The house has a great atmosphere and the garden is amazing. We lovedsitting in the sun on the balcony and we enjoyed the view. The pool was cold, but nice and we loved to eat our dinner on the bbq-terrace. The gameroom was fantastic, pooltable, tabletennis, darts, games and a bar with fridge and music! Our kids loved it! We (just ordinary Dutch people) felt like the Royal family on a holiday!!!

The owner is very kind and friendly. We will certainly come back another time!
