Guestbook comments from the owner

Just to say a big thank you for the lovely holiday. The villa was excellent and we could not have wished for more. Fernanda and Rosa were brilliant, as per usual the villa was spotless and we really enjoyed our holiday even more than usual.

Thanks a million!

We had the most amazing stay at casa Alegra,

Firstly it is so much larger than the pictures give it justice to,

We were worried for space but that was certainly not an issue, there are two ends to the house with 2 bedrooms each end and 3 of them with fully equipped on suites,

It felt like Home from Home as there was nothing we had need for whatsoever, it was obviously lived in by the family and decorated with Beautiful taste, the Huge wooden doors and Morrocan wood everywhere simply stunning.

The kitchen had everything we needed , an amazing welcome pack for when we arrived so no need to dash out to supermarket. The huge Miele fridgeS , the oven , gigantic wooden table all high spec..

The pool was Lovely , we could simply walk out from the living area straight into a swim first thing. The pool guy came many times and kept the pool amazingly clean,

Ivory Villas were v helpful, also the owners, as they helped us get in touch with a baby sitting service . We had a lovely french girl help us with our 22 month old a few days over the 2 weeks.

Many thanks to both of you ,

We Loved it and Hope to be back next year!!

Picturesque, incredible views.

  • 5 of 5

The most perfect stay; there was so much attention to detail, and everything had been thought of. Decor was beautiful; quite unusual, but worked perfectly. The kitchen was well-equipped, and everything was spotlessly clean. Very comfortable beds. My favourite was the stand-alone bath, although my boyfriend loved having a morning swim in the pool outside every day.

When we arrived, we had been left a brilliant food pack with wine, beers, tea, fruit, bread and ham. All the essentials!

The underfloor heating was, obviously, not really needed during the day but it was lovely to have the option when it got cooler in the evenings. The beach was very close by, only about 10 minutes, but it was also lovely to have the option of staying at home by the pool. Such a perfect stay, we can't wait to return!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your lovely review Phoebe, it was an absolute pleasure to have you both stay at Casa Alegre Vista. We're glad you loved our food pack, we love going the extra mile for our clients. Yes you're right the pool is very close distance to our villa however there is something special about jumping straight into the pool for the day. We hope to welcome you back very soon. Best wishes, The team at IvoryVillas

Exceptional Villa - Highly Recommend

  • 5 of 5

This villa is a real gem! Provides all you need, just as described in the property details but the overall impact is so much more.

Beautifully furnished throughout. Fully equipped with everything you could need. Wonderful welcome pack provided on arrival. The terrace, pool and garden area are fabulous. Secluded and peaceful. Rooms are big and spacious, exceptionally clean and well-maintained.

5 star villa

  • 5 of 5

I must say we cannot fault you on the description of your villa. It truly is a stunning, luxury 4 bedroom villa. The bedrooms are a lot bigger than anticipated which is always a bonus and the decor is even more stunning in real life.We felt that we we're given the royal treatment upon arrival as the villa was so cosy for us as we flew in quite late and we had a gorgeous food pack to nibble on while we settled in. No expense was spared on us and we we're so appreciative. We cannot not wait to come back next year.

Fabulous!! Highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay on Serra e Mar but our first stay at Casa Alegre Vista.....what an amazing villa!!!.....everything is so luxurious, from the incredible decor to the huge bedrooms and gorgeous bathrooms, the comfortable beds with beautiful linens, the massive kitchen and living room, the fantastic pool (where our kids lived for 2 weeks!!).....I could go on and on because it really is the best place we have ever stayed. And there is everything you need...air con, BBQ, a well-equipped kitchen (with 2 full size fridges and a full size freezer!) and beautiful terraces all round the villa with plenty of garden furniture and sun loungers. Most of all it is really private and peaceful and we just didn't want to leave.....really, really wish it was my house and would 100% recommend to anyone!
