Secluded Rural Villa With Private Pool and Lovely Views

Bedrooms 2
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 1 - 5 nights


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. A new fully-fitted kitchen comprising larder fridge (bigger fridge is in the utility room), dishwasher, double multi-function oven, hob with three gas burners (including a superfast burner) and an induction ring, microwave oven, and wine cooler was installed in 2017. The bath/shower rooms were upgraded in 2018.

Simply great!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have just returned from a fantastic holiday at Casa do Cuco with our two daughters aged 19 and 21. The villa was everything we had hoped for, it is modern, spacious, clean and comfortable. Everything you might need is provided so that it feels more like a home and not just holiday accommodation.

The villa sits on a good size plot offering welcome privacy and the south-facing design provides you with full days of sunshine and wonderful views of rolling green hills. The covered terrace is delightful for dining al fresco and for enjoying long cool drinks should you need a break from savouring the heat of the sun by the lovely pool

This was our first family holiday in the Algarve, although the villa is secluded the road network is very good and we were able to use our hire car to visit a number of towns and the beaches for which the area is renowned. Loule is only 5-10 minutes away offering not only it’s market and historic centre but also possibly the biggest and best supermarket we have ever found on holiday

We consider ourselves fortunate to have discovered this home in the sun, we have enjoyed a number of villa holidays over the years and this has been one of our most enjoyable, it is the little extras which make a difference such as the recommendations of local restaurants and tips of places to visit.

We would not hesitate to recommend Casa do Cuco for a holiday and look forward to returning

An Algarve Gem

  • 5 of 5

We have recently returned from a 15 night stay at Casa de Cuco (25th July - 9th Aug 2018) and had a fantastic time. This villa was perfect in every way. Such a generous amount of room both inside and outside for a 2 bedroom property. The new kitchen was stunning and had everything you needed including a wine cooler that came in very handy. The villa is very tasteful in terms of decor. The swimming pool was of ample size and the pool temperature was perfect especially as we experienced extremely high temperatures during our stay. The location of the property was just what we wanted - away from all the hustle of bustle but within a 5 minute drive to the nearest town of Loule. The surrounding views are stunning. Will we return ---- most definitely and all being well, next summer

Thank you Kate for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home

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.
