Guestbook comments from the manager

Our party of eight had a brilliant week in this large detached villa. The location is absolutely perfect, only a quick 20 minute drive from Faro airport, especially important if travelling with small children after a flight from the UK. In its own extensive gardens with private swimming pool, it has wonderful views across the valley to Loule and beyond, as far as the Algarve coast. Loule itself is a quick 5 minute drive or 30 minute walk away, the nearest hypermarket is visible from the villa on the outskirts, which you pass on the way from the airport. The villa itself was exactly as described - four large well equipped bedrooms, a huge lounge where seven adults and one very active toddler could relax with Sky and all UK TV channels, large kitchen with everything you need to self cater, and a great outside area with swimming pool and BBQ area, with enough seating to relax around the pool, read a book or have a sit down meal together. The only slight downside was that occasionally there was insufficient hot water for seven adults, but this did not in any way detract from the overall high quality that the villa provided.

The main resorts on the coast are a quick 20-25 minute drive away where the beaches go on for miles and other touristy facilities are widely available.

We all agreed that the villa was everything we had hoped for, and allowed us to chill out in a peaceful environment away from the crowds nearer to the coast.

Contact from Anita and her local management team was always very professional with directions and other local information, and made the booking very straightforward.

All in all a great villa, a great holiday and we would happily recommend Casa Vimalio to anyone.

Stunning villa in a tranquil setting

  • 5 of 5

A superb 5 star villa in a lovely tranquil setting. We (2 families) occupied this property from 8th-15th April and would definitely consider returning again. We were all pleasantly surprised with all amenities offered within the villa, it is very spacious, modern and tastefully decorated. We travelled with 3 young children whom loved the fully equipped games room and wii; they especially loved the heated pool (as did the adults!) we spent long sunny days on the lovely pool terrace and warm evenings enjoying our meals out doors using the purpose built brick BBQ. Anita was almost immediately available via text/email to answer our queries on arrival and throughout our stay. If you are contemplating this property for your next family holiday, book! You won't be disappointed!

Great villa in quiet location

  • 5 of 5

Villa and location was lovely and we had everything on site to keep all of our children occupied and content including a great heated pool.

Thank you for letting us rent your villa and we will look forward to returning in the near future.

Wonderfully seculded with great views .

  • 4 of 5

Family group of 4 adults and two children under 8 years old. Historically we used to stay in Vilamoura however we wanted a change of view and this Villa was really great. The pool was lovely and warm and the outside space is perfect for eating out. We ate outside for 14 days ! The villa was spotlessly clean and the staff are amazing. We will go back again in 2016 (if we can afford it !) and the only very small grumble I'd have is that the Sky TV (or any UK channels) did not work so we had to read our books ! On a Villa of this scale that should not happen. Otherwise we loved it and who recommend to anyone who like peace and tranquility. You need a Car !

Great return visit

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic villa for all ages. Lovely views, beautiful garden, warm swimming pool, wonderful area for outdoor eating and barbequing. Extra touches make it a very special villa: up to date coffee machine; playground area in the lower garden for young children; games room and soundproofing throughout; cot and high chair provided. This was our second visit and we will be back again. Thank you Anita!

Holiday 2012

  • 5 of 5

We have been holidaying on Portugal for 16 years and this by far was the best villa we have stayed in, If you want a quiet location within easy reach of most locations choose Vimalio, the property was equiped to a very high standard and we wanted for nothing. The games room provided hours of fun on the evenings we stayed by the villa and kept the teenagers in our party fully occupied. I would not hesitate in recomending this villa to any of my friends and we will return. One thing that was well recieved was when we did have a slight problem the owner was contactable and on hand to resolve the issue straight away.

* 5 stars as far as we are concerned.

Fantastic holiday!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Just wanted to take the time to review our fantastic holiday in Casa Vimalio. We stayed in the villa from the 5th to the 17th august 2012, this was our 1st holiday together with a young baby, so had been a little apprehensive prior to our trip, but must say we needn't have been as this was the best choice possible!! As well as my husband and our young son, our extended family consisting of 10 other people were also there, and the generous size of the villa meant even with such a large group of people and a wide age range, we were still well entertained and not under each others feet. There was a travel cot for my son to use, as well as a high chair, I used the microwave at the villa to do my sons sterilising, using munchkin bags, which I found really convenient, another perk, as if staying in an apartment we wouldn't have access to this. The pool is fantastic, and the temperature was perfect even for our 7 month old son to enjoy, the other young chidren in our group enjoyed the games room and the park. The villa has a lovely BBQ area, which we enjoyed on a number of evenings. When we ate out there is many local restaurants serving lovely food reasonably priced, and there is also the option to drive to other resorts including Val de lobo, Vilamoura and Quinta de lago for more fine dining, we enjoyed a particularly nice meal in a restaurant called perilla natural superb!!

The villa itself is stunning immaculate, and very well kept, the well established gardens, views and ample outdoor seating areas are all wonderful, and thoroughly enjoyed by our party both by day and night, and we would not hesitate to revisit.
