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.

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.

A total winner

  • 5 of 5

Many congratulations Kate - your home in the sun is fabulous both inside and out. Lovely bright spacious airy rooms all beautifully furnished and spotlessly clean, wonderfully equipped roomy kitchen and a large laundry room to boot!!

The pool was heavenly, surrounded by flowering pots, a pretty garden and a lovely terrace with table and chairs for early breakfasts or late suppers while admiring the lovely views.

We had a fantastic two weeks and really appreciated all your notes on various beaches, restaurants etc and a big thank you to Cathy too.

It was well worth the 15 month wait and I was very sad to close the door for the last time!

Best wishes - Jane

Quiet and Peaceful.... Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Casacuco is a charming villa located in a peaceful and quiet area. The owner Kate was very easy to communicate with, as well, her property manager Cathy was readily available for any questions you may have once you arrive in Portugal.

The rental unit itself is well cared for, clean, and equipped with everything you will require for the duration of your stay. The pool was lovely, with an amazing view of the valley.

The supermarket is less than 10 minutes away by car, and one of the best Piri Piri chicken restaurants (Churrasqeira Jolibela) is also 15 minutes by car located in the nearby town.

Thank you Kate and Cathy for everything! We had a wonderful and memorable family vacation and hope to return next year!
