The cottage is close to the local farmers market, shops, bars and restaurants so you don't need to go far for your daily fresh bread, fruit or to go out for a meal.

The Neighborhood

Vila do Bispo is a small town with older, typical Algarvian houses clustered around the 16th century church. It's set in Costa Vicentina National Park, and close to the Park de Floresta tennis and golf course.

When to come

The Algarve is an all year round holiday destination.

If you're not tied to the school holidays, the spring and autumn months are a lovely time to be here, and of course, much quieter than high summer.

Even December and January can be warm and sunny although the evenings are often chilly. Not all the restaurants and bars stay open in winter, but there is still plenty of choice, and a warm welcome.

Getting around

You will find everything you need in the village but you will need a car if you want to explore the area.

The house information is listed in the property. Pets not allowed.

Distance Lisbon - VIla do Bispo = 320 km

Distance Faro - VIla do Bispo = 85 km

Our name is Casa da Praia Algarve. Scammers have been throwing up fake listings - including fake reviews - on Home away etc. But no scammer is going to take the time to also set up a custom website and Facebook page for a fake rental.

“Great house with quirky features"

  • 5 of 5

Location was great just a short walk from the local market.

The house was a good size with comfy queen sized bed.

Shower was great- good pressure and hot !

The owner made an extra effort as it was my partners birthday and gifted him a card with 2 free cocktails at a local bar ! We also requested a later check out and again the owner was great.

This was our first visit to the Algarve and we had such a wonderful time. We booked the house for 3 nights but ended up staying longer. Very good service!

We very much enjoyed our stay and will recommend.

Great little apartment

  • 4 of 5

This was a great little converted garage apartment in Vila do Bispo. It was well located for many of our adventures in the Algarve and there was a wonderful traditional restaurant literally two blocks away. We definately needed a car to get around but managed to see Lagos, Salema, Sagres, Silves, and points in between during our week stay; everything was very convenient. There is also a daily market (except Sunday) and a bakery within walking distance so I became addicted to daily croissants. The apartment is small but it was clean with a nice bathroom and well appointed furnishings. The bed was extremely comfortable! It was a quiet neighborhood and absolutely safe. The most marvelous beach, Castelejo beach, is a very short drive away and it is gorgeous with a wonderful restaurant you must visit for dinner at sundown! Stunning! An was a wonderful host and helped "guide" us in when we became lost on arrival. She left plenty of information regarding the area, things to do, places to go and food to try. Bossa Nova Pizza in Sagres is another great place to eat if you are in Sagres.

Perfect verblijf.

  • 5 of 5

Het was een zeer aangenaam verblijf in de Algarve. We hebben genoten van de mooie stranden, musea´s, kastelen, het lekkere eten en geode wijn en het aangename weer. De bevolking is heel hulpzaam en vriendelijk. De rustige omgeving was voor ons een pluspunt. Onze dagen waren te kort... We hebben een mooie vakantie gehad. Bedankt voor de goede zorgen. Groetjes en tot volgend jaar.

Clean and compact

  • 5 of 5

A very clean and compact apartment, with the most comfortable bed. The nearby beaches are some of the most stunning (and quietest) that we've ever encountered, not to mention the incredible weather. We had a fantastic week and would thoroughly recommend it
