Overview

About the property

Villa, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 4 (strictly adults-only)

Casa do Cuco is built into a hillside of almond, carob, olive and fig trees with lovely country views. Situated near the end of a cul de sac, it sees very little passing traffic. It is secluded but not remote - you can be in the busy market town of Loule in less than 10 minutes and several beautiful beaches and first class golf courses are accessible in around 20 minutes.

The house comprises a large kitchen, utility room and comfortable sitting/dining room. There are two letting bedrooms, a double room with en suite shower room on the first floor and a twin room on the ground floor with full bathroom next door. The sitting room and twin bedroom have French doors leading to the outside covered terrace. The upstairs bedroom has its own private roof terrace. The covered terrace has a table and chairs for outside dining, and overlooks the south-facing pool terrace.

Lovely villa in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Villa was fantastic, everything we needed for our 10 day stay. The pool was great and with temperatures nudging 30 deg. C it was nice to cool off. The location is great, secluded and private, yet close enough to Loule and all the amenities with good access to the road network to get to any area of the Algarve with ease. We loved the outside seating area, sunny in the mornings and shaded in the heat of the day. If you wanted 100% sunshine, the sun beds by the pool offered this until the sun disappeared in the early evenings. Inside, the villa was clean and comfortable, a lovely new kitchen, and great to have an extra fridge in the utility room. Truth was because the weather was so good we spent many hours outside and not much time inside. We hope to return in the future.

A Wonderful Week

  • 5 of 5

Casa do Cuco is a lovely peaceful retreat.

We enjoyed exploring the area & returning home for lazy afternoon’s by the pool.

As mentioned by other guests, location was perfect, close to great walks & beaches.

The house is very comfortable & the pool & gardens are lovely, just like the photo's!

We hope to return for another visit and will happily recommend to family & friends.

Thanks Kate & Kathy.

Good spot for an Algarve holiday. Quiet but not isolated. Plenty of space and very comfortable

  • 4 of 5

We had a great short break here despite some pretty average weather. Easy travel to visit the Algarve and even Seville. A car is a must. The owner was very helpful - even at short notice.

Owner's Response: REVIEWED IN ERROR. Unfortunately, due to a mix-up over dates, John had to cancel his booking. He didn't actually stay at Casa do Cuco. (This review may apply to a different villa).
