About the property

Looking For A Relaxing Holiday With Your Family? Or A Romantic Retreat?

This cozy, private villa is the perfect setting for a small family, very safe for children, gated for safety, and very private for a romantic getaway!

It is located between two historical towns-S.Bras and Estoi where you can visit the Roman Ruins and many other historical sites. There are many restaurants in both towns featuring local specialties. It is located only 20 minutes from Faro airport, golf courses and the beautiful coast where the Mediterranean meets the Atlantic Ocean. The water is warm and calm.

The villa has a lovely pool, area with almond, fig and alfarroba trees.

You will find a veranda for star gazing and a covered patio to enjoy your lunch or dinner.

The area of the pool has two umbrellas for relief of the hot sun... The villa is very clean and was renovated 5 years ago. Two bedrooms with air conditioning and kitchen and living room facing the pool. Also a second flood room for playing cards, reading or watching your favorite movie.

Choose Casa dos Avos for your gateway and you will want to go back every year.....

Lovely Vila, Pool and Surroundings

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed at the Vila and it was as good as the first. Vila is kept very clean and tidy and the pool is cleaned on a regular basis.

The surroundings are perfect very peaceful and relaxing.

A car is essential. Lots of nice places to visit and excellent restaurants with fabulous supermarket in Faro

It was our first time to the Algarve. I am sure it won't be our last. Villa Dos Avos is a beautiful property, it has a fantastic pool area and the layout inside is very practical. We had a lovely welcome from Helena @ O Cerro restaurant and Isabelle who looks after the house. Jao ? the poolman is very discreet and friendly. The Villa is situated in a rural area and about 25-30 minutes from most places along the coast via car (which is a must).

If you like seafood, then you will be in your element. There are many great places to visit, our favourite was Vilamoura marina.

Maria Dovale the proprietor, was excellent throughout in terms of communication via e-mail.

All in all we certainly recommend this Villa

Excellent Villa with superb facilities

  • 5 of 5

The Villa and pool was kept to an extremely high standard. The facilities provided were excellent and everything was very clean. A perfect villa for a relaxing break with fantastic views and a great location. The customer service provided was very good and we felt that someone would be on hand should we have needed anyone.

The surrounding areas are beautiful with lots of nice places to eat and things to do and see.

A visit to the Palace for dinner is a MUST

A very lovely place to be

  • 5 of 5

It was the very first time of a kind in Algarve & as a new holiday concept for us, chaning from the all-in hotels. Not only there are plenty of things to do outside Casa dos Avos, but the house itself is the perfect rest area to be, even more after some visiting days running with your rented car... calm, sunny, no time notion. Locally, plenty of local fresh local markets, but as well bigger supermarkets...what a lovelly place to be in the middle of nature!

Very pleased with our stay

  • 5 of 5

The villa is very comfortable and sufficient equipment.

We took full advantage of the pool which is really perfect.

The access to Internet is not very convenient but the owner should solve this problem. Maria Dovale is listening and highly responsive.

Villa de reve dans un cadre magnifique

  • 5 of 5

La villa se situe à quelques kilomètres de faro et de son aéroport.

A moins de 8min en voiture il y a un Intermarché ce qui rend les courses simples.

La villa est magnifique, bien équipée et permet d'accueillir facilement 6personnes.

L'accueil a été chaleureux et tout nous a été montré afin de faciliter notre installation!

Je recommande fortement cette superbe maison si vous êtes amateurs de barbecue, de piscine, de repos et de soleil !
