Wonderful introduction to the Algave coast!

  • 5 of 5

As this was our first visit to Portugal and the southern coast, we couldn't have asked for a better experience than our stay at Casa Semaphore!

Our grandson (16) said his only requirements were a great view and nice pool. Well, we got that in spades. Privacy, views, lovely and luxurious, spotless home and pool, with glass doors all over that opened to terraces and gave you an outdoor feeling indoors. We were 3 generations with grandchildren 16,13 and 11 who each found their perfect nook in this spacious villa. Marie Diane, one of the owners.was instrumental in welcoming us before the visit with car rental,boat rental and perfect directions, along with any other information requested. Tim, the pool manager/caretaker gave us recommendations for excellent, inexpensive and memorable restaurants. Natalia came to the villa daily and inobtrusively tidied the bedrooms and cleaned the bathrooms.Having rented a number of times in Europe, we've never felt so cared for. Grandkids and grown ups loved the water park and swimming off the beach in a cave at the Benagil caves. There was much to do but we relished the peace and guiet of the area as we had just had a very busy week prior to our stay. Well located, near airport, beaches, restaurants and stores and yet away from the touristy, crowded areas. Can't say enough about Casa Semaphore and our wonderful visit.

We just spent a week in the Villa Sémaphore with a group of friends. Fabulous stay! The villa is huge, exposed to the South, so the sun is on the Terrace and in the house all day long. The view if simply GOURGEOUS! You are a 15 minutes drive to pretty much everything: airport, train station, golf courses, beaches, Loulé, Faro, and many activities such as karting and water parks (which are a bit further away, maybe 30 minutes). Trust me, it is worth driving 15 minutes, as you get a little isolated from the busy coast, which can get crowded and noisy, even in April… So I can't imagine the summer. I wouldn't have liked to stay too close to the beaches, I'm glad we picked this location. And when you see the view, you forget about the small drive, because it's simply breath taking.

The swimming pool is lovely, really refreshing with the super hot weather (25-28°C in March/April…).

The house is big enough for a quite large group, you have enough space to park a few cars. Everything is well equipped, and most of all, CLEAN! All the rooms and beds are ready upon your arrival, which is an extra comfort after a long journey.

There is even a separate toilet next to the pool that you can reach from outside, so you don't put water in the whole house… Very well thought!

Plus the welcoming was great. You get welcomed by one of the landlords, or a relative of theirs, and they explain everything to do in the area, and they can help you to get there (we followed the car from the airport), and you can reach them during the rental period in case of a problem or a question.

Truly fantastic stay, I'd definitely recommend this villa, it is really worth it! Can't wait to go there again next year!

Prachtig gelegen huis met mooi uitzicht

  • 5 of 5

Het huis ligt op een mooi rustige plek met een fantastisch uitzicht. Zeer gastvrij ontvangen.

In het huis is alles aanwezig. Goed uitgeruste keuken, mooie leefruimte, goede bedden. Het ontbrak ons aan niets.

Het ligt vrij centraal. Niet ver van de supermarkt, vliegveld, strand en uitstapjes.

We hebben een heerlijk verblijf gehad.

Fantastisch verblijf prachtige lokatie 😍

  • 5 of 5

Prachtige woning met alle luxe. Geweldig.!!

Schoonmaakster die elke dag langs komt. Tim die je verwelkomt bij aankomst en leuke tips geeft. Kortom fantastisch verblijf. Ligt vlakbij de snelweg. Je rijdt makkelijk naar Faro of richting Albufeira. Huis staat op een heuvel ( met meerdere huizen in de buurt) waardoor je een prachtig uitzicht hebt en waar je heerlijk van de stilte kunt genieten. Een echte aanrader👍?👍?😍?😍?

Beau séjour

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un beau séjour . La villa est spacieuse , très bien équipée , et surtout , agréable et facile à vivre . Comme elle est perchée sur une colline , la vue au petit déjeuner , sur la lagune de Faro , est juste splendide . Rien de tel pour bien démarrer la journée . Rien que d'y penser ....

Sur place il y a une multitudes d'activités à faire , qu'elles soient balnéaires , sportives , culturelles ou culinaires . Nous vous conseillons entre autres le marché couvert de Loule , et le festival de fruits de mer de Faro ou d'Ohlao .

Une mention spéciale pour Tim et Natalia , qui nous ont accueilli avec gentillesse , bienveillance , et attention .ils ont été aux petits soins avec nous , cela fait plaisir . Par ailleurs , ils sont egalement de très bon conseil sur d'éventuelles activités dans les environs .

Pour finir , un petit mot pour Marie Diane qui s'est montrée irréprochable durant toute la transaction . Merci pour tout .

Semaine de rêve

  • 5 of 5

Une semaine de rêve dans une maison et dans un cadre parfait, la maison correspond parfaitement aux photos.

L'accueil de TIM était parfait, c'est une personne géniale et très agréable.

Cette semaine de vacance était un réelle bonheur dans des conditions optimum.

je remercie Mme Vanquathem pour sa gentillesse et sa disponibilité, et en espérant peut-etre une prochaine location.
