Beautifull stylish villa in Serra e Mar

  • 5 of 5

Geweldig! Wat een heerlijke huis, alles klopt hier en wat hadden wij graag nog wat langer gebleven. Vanaf de eerste dag overviel ons een geluksgevoel, fantastische slaapkamers met goede bedden en met elk een eigen badkamer compleet met prachtige Marokkaanse lampen en Marokkaanse details, wat in het hele huis zo mooi is doorgevoerd. De living groot en mooi ingericht, met luxe banken en opnieuw die mooie Marokkaanse details. Een goede keuken met alles wat je nodig hebt en fijne grote koelkast. Buiten een heerlijke grote tafel om aan te ontbijten of dineren, en een luxe zithoek met grote kussens onder de veranda waar je in de schaduw ( het kan nog wel eens warm worden in Portugal) een boek kan lezen, of een wijn drinken. En dan natuurlijk het geweldige zwembad met de ligbedden in een prachtige tuin die goed onderhouden wordt, zowel voor als achter het huis. Kortom wij voelde ons rijk en alles voldeed totaal aan onze verwachtingen, wij zullen het huis zeker aan onze vrienden en kennissen aanbevelen, en hopen snel weer een keer terug te komen.

Zeer aanbevolen!

Great holiday in beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

We spent our summer holiday at this beautiful villa and we were very impressed. It is actually even better than it looked in the photos! It is very stylish, spacious, clean, furnished beautifully and the location is great, very peaceful and private but Alvor beach and Penina Golf are close by. We would absolutely recommend it and will come back soon.

Luxurious villa, very comfortable & super location

  • 5 of 5

We have had a wonderful two week stay in this villa. It has been stylishly decorated in a Moroccan theme and finished to a high standard. We felt very comfortable and at home. It is kitted out with every type of mod-con.

All the staff (cleaners / gardening / pool) were very friendly and attentive. The property was very clean. It is a short drive from Alvor which is too far to walk with children. This suited us as you are away from the noise and other tourists! Would highly recommend.

Een fantastische droomplek midden in de Algarve

  • 5 of 5

Een prachtige villa, gelegen in een zeer rustige wijk, welke is voorzien van alle moderne faciliteiten tot in de kleinste details. De eigenaar is er duidelijk in geslaagd het maximale aan wooncomfort hier te realiseren. Alles is op elkaar perfect afgestemd. De prachtige tuin rondom wordt dagelijks onderhouden met veel zorg. De cleaningservice, 3 - 4 dagelijks zorgt oa voor schone handdoeken en badhanddoeken.

Een mooi groot zwembad, welke s' avonds feeëriek is verlicht maakt het helemaal af.

Owner's Response: Met veel dank voor deze terugkoppeling, erg gewaardeerd. Wij zijn blij dat jullie zo'n fijne tijd op Serra hebben doorgebracht en dat jullie de villa tot in haar detail hebben weten te appreciëren. De rust van Serra en de centrale ligging ten opzichte van strand, dorpjes, restaurantjes en overige faciliteiten heeft er ook voor jullie voor gezorgd dat jullie zo hebben kunnen genieten van jullie vakantie. We hopen jullie nog een keer terug te mogen verwelkomen! Met warme groet!

Beautiful luxury villa, fantastic (winter) holiday

  • 5 of 5

Just back from a 3 week holiday with lots of relaxation and golf in this beautiful villa. This was the second time we came back to Casa Laranja at Serra e Mar, now during the winter period and we were again very impressed with the facilities and service, plus the villa itself is really special, beautifully furnished and decorated, and very big. We visited the impressive east coast, enjoyed the local restaurants mainly in Alvor this time and played the golf course of Morgado, the true champion course Penina and the stunning course of Palmares near the sea, which are all within easy drive and truly excellent! And the weather was brilliant - especially when compared to the Netherlands and in the winter time. True value for money, what a great time! We will for sure come back soon again! And highly recommend this villa to everyone who is looking for a quiet relaxing holiday, to enjoy the pool area and all that less than 15 min drive from the long beaches of Alvor and lots of golfcourses nearby.

The best holidays so far!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Laranja is a wonderful villa. This was our third visit to this lovely property, now during the Christmas period. The villa is still as beautiful as last time, so very peaceful and easily accessible. We visited the entire southern coast which is so impressive throughout the year and played some great rounds of golf, the courses were as always in such a great condition. The villa is very spacious, always exceptionally clean and generously appointed with all the amenities to make you feel at home. It was fantastic and very much appreciated by all ... thank you again for the kind hospitality! Casa Laranja is an enjoyable place and we would highly recommend it. We will be back soon again!
