What makes this villa unique

Castelo Sonho unites size and everyday activities without losing its Portuguese charms. If you are travelling with large groups with children or as a sport group, you will find the Castelo a perfect place to enjoy your holiday together. The house is solidly built and furnished practically - we take a pass on gratuitous pomp. The outer area with a pool, garden, and beach volleyball courts is perfect for everyone to simply let their mind wander.

Fantastic place to have a family holiday

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful property. We were the first English group to stay at the property - and hopefully we won't be the last. A group of 15 - 8 adults and 7 children, there was room for everyone and more.

Great facilities that were all the better for having a history within the area. The pool is terrific and so much bigger than what you would normally get in a villa rental. The volleyball courts are great for those who want to be energetic in the boring Portuguese summer sun!

Special mention must also go to Americo, the house keeper. A source of local knowledge an help. Only too happy to sort any problems (ours were small and down to user error and not the villa!).

Closer enough to Faro not to require a long drive, but secluded and quiet.

All in all a great place to have a holiday.

sportlicher Familienurlaub mit Erholungsfaktor

  • 5 of 5

8 Erwachsene und 8 Kinder unter einem Dach hier kein Problem. Das Haus ist so großzügig, dass jeder auch seine Ruheinsel findet und sich aber auch alle im Pool oder beim Beachvolleyball treffen können. Selbst in der Küche ist genügend Platz, so dass man gleichzeitig kochen kann. Selbstverpflegung ist hier kein Problem, die 2 großen Kühlschränke und die Abstellkammer bietet genug Platz. Kinderbettchen, Hochstuhl und sogar Buggy waren vor Ort, so dass auch für die Kleinsten gesorgt war.

Wir kommen auf alle Fälle wieder!

Mal was anderes als Skifahren

  • 4 of 5

Schönes und praktisches Haus mit ewig viel Platz. Zimmer, Balkone, Terassen und Garten - alles im Überfluss. Mit 2 Familien (4 Erwachsene und 3 Kinder) haben wir uns sogar etwas verloren gefühlt. Einfach eingerichtet, aber völlig praktisch. Auch die Küche ist für den Urlaub völlig ausreichend. Der Pool war uns allen jedoch etwas zu kalt. Die Beach-volleyball Plätze sind top, haben zwar nicht gespielt, für unsere Kinder war es jedoch ein riesengroßer Sandkasten. Alles ist sauber, zwar schon etwas älter, aber sehr gepflegt. Wandern ist zu dieser Jahreszeit ein Genuss. Wir haben unser Leihauto eigentlich nur zum Einkaufen benötigt.

Das Haus ist für mindestens 3 Familien optimal, für weniger ist es viel zu groß. Das nächste Mal kommen wir mit mehr Leuten und im Sommer. Uns hat es sehr gut gefallen. Danke an A. (der liebe Hausmeister), der sich immer um uns gekümmert hat.

Einzigartig und so was von speziell

  • 5 of 5

Heiße, ewig lange Sandstrände, ein wunderbares portugiesisches Volk, ein haus mit Charme und viel Exklusivität und natürlich: Zwei eigene Beachvolleyballfelder!

Optimal für Beachvolleyballer

  • 5 of 5

Optimal für Beachvolleyballer, da immer zwei exzellente Plätze ausschließlich für die Mieter zur Verfügung stehen. Haus und Gartenanlage sind so groß, dass man sich jederzeit auch mal zurückziehen kann, auch wenn das Haus voll besetzt ist. Ein Teil der Außenanlage ist noch in der "Aufbauphase". Ausreichende Spielmöglichkeiten für Kinder sind auch über den sehr schönen Pool hinaus vorhanden. Der Strand ist in 20 Min. auch zu Fuß zu erreichen. Kleine Einschränkung: Das Haus ist schon etwas älter, aber in einem sehr gepflegten Zustand; also, wer z. B. die neuesten sanitären Einrichtungen erwartet, wird vielleicht enttäuscht werden. Kommt halt darauf an, wie wichtig einem solche Sachen sind. Fazit: Für Beachvolleyballer uneingeschränkt empfehlenswert!

There are waterparks and adventure parks in the nearby region. If you're travelling with kids, no one will be disappointed with the park. An absolute must-see is the sand sculpture park in Fiesa, just two hours away - you'll marvel at what can be done with beach volleyball sand.
