Wonderful Family Vacation
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the villa. It was particularly nice that it was outside of town and in a peaceful, quiet location. The villa is nicely furnished and has that nice feel of a place that is used by the owners regularly rather than just being an income property. Loved the wood-burning fire and the swimming pool was well-used by the kids (definitely worth the extra expense to have it heated). Lots of great places to eat in close-by Almancil. Good recommendations in the villa materials, although some places are closed over the Christmas/NY period or for the winter - worth checking opening online before heading out for an evening. We were very happy that we booked a car. Necessary if you want to take in the sites around the Algarve, and there is lots to see. Particularly enjoyed the Milreu Roman ruins. Also did a day trip to Sevilla - lovely city and only a couple of hours drive to get there. We will definitely be coming back to the Algarve and would recommend the villa as a great place to stay, particularly if you want to be well-removed from the hubbub of the touristy complexes in the area.
Thank you very much for this lovely review.
You are right, Casa da Oliveira is our second home which we visit regularly throughout the year often with friends or three generations of family! It is kitted out accordingly with masses of crockery, cutlery, glasses, etc., so that we never run out even when the dishwasher is full!
Our new powerful heat exchanger makes it easy to warm the pool water to 27/28C at any time of year, as indeed it will for us next week when we go there.
My wife and I are so glad that you had such a good time at the villa and you will always be welcome there again in the future.
A home from home absolutely fantastic
Just returned from a fabulous week in this lovely villa it’s a great base for relaxing or traveling either side of the algarve coast and with the new shopping centre at Loule only a 10 minute drive away and so easy to get to
Spent some evenings sat in the garden in the peace and quiet with only the church clock letting us know the time
Many thanks for a fantastic break
Holiday in Almancil
If you want to have a lovely stay in the Algarve, just book this lovely villa in the Algarve. We spent 10 beautiful days overthere.
The villa has all you need and the kitchen is very well equiped. If you are Looking for a big cooking pan, just look upon the fridge. 😄
Robert is a very nice owner from whom you get a road discription with pictures, so you find the way to the villa easily.
The swimmingpool pool is warm and pleasant.
In short: the price quality ratio is excellent.
Enyou your stay!
Peaceful, relaxing villa with stunning pool area
This is our second trip to this villa and quite honestly, I couldn't recommend it highly enough.
The owner is quick to respond to any questions or queries you may have which is reassuring.
Whilst the villa may not be overly modern, it is incredibly comfortable and soon feels like a second home. We've holidayed here with small children and it's the perfect set up. The safety fence provides peace of mind so the children can be free to play inside and outside without fear of the pool. When they're tucked up in bed, we've been able to enjoy a rare peaceful moment with a BBQ and glass of vino by the pool....which is prettily lit at night too.
The location is ideal - at the end of a quiet road so no traffic noise at all - yet only a 5 min drive to various supermarkets.
We will definitely return and would recommend this to both friends and family. A wonderful stay once again - thank you!
This was our first time staying in a villa so was unsure how things worked when booking but Robert the owner answered all our questions and made this booking very easy with excellent communication.
Having never traveled to Portugal before we arrived and picked our hire car up and was quickly on our way to find our villa which was very easy to find with the directions supplied .
Our trip consisted of myself my wife and our two young boys who were so excited about having there own swimming pool , on arrival at casa da oliveira our expectations were blown away with how big and beautiful this property was , it was not overlooked by anyone and had everything you needed for a family holiday , it was great waking up in the morning in the lovely big comfy beds with the sound of silence except for a few morning birds which is how everyone should wake up in a.ideal world ,The pool was amazing and really made our holiday, it was warm stunning and all four of us were never out of the pool , we had perfect days having BBQ's swimming and sunbathing around the pool .
The location of this villa was just right with it being 20-25 mins drive from the airport and 5mins from the village of alamanci were it had some good supermarkets for everything you needed and some excellent restaurants which we tried when we could drag ourselves from the villa .
The villas wifi and tv with 100's of channels was excellent , the rooms were excellent and spotless , the kitchen had everything you need , The grounds to the villa was excellent and safe and our boys loved to explore and my 4 yr old made himself the gate boy who I had to pay a Euro every time he opened the gates to go exploring , we could go on all day about this villa and we feel we still couldn't do it justice , by far it had been our best holiday to date and in no doubt this was due to the villa and it's excellent location and facilities , it was a villa with a home feel . Best holiday ever and will be booking this again , thank you for a great stay
Thank you so much Darren for this lovely review. We bend over backwards in an effort to provide the best possible facilities and ambience for our guests.
Casa da Oliveira is our second home and we only wish we could spend more time there ourselves. However we can't so the next best thing is to let guests such as you and your family enjoy what we have. We're glad you had such a good time!
You will always be most welcome at Casa da Oliveira.
A truly fantastic holiday ...
My family and i had a fantastic 10 days in this beautiful villa.
We had children with us ranging from one and a half to 10 and the villa was capable of suiting everyone's needs. There was an abundance of inflatables and toys for them and the added security of a fence around the pool.
We had numerous meals sat outside enjoying the beautiful uninterrupted views.
The villa itself was impeccably clean and the staff to hand where very helpful.
The villa can easily cater for 2 separate families wishing to holiday together.
We ventured out and had a beautiful meal at vilamoura watching the rather exclusive yachts come and go.
Food shopping was available with a 10 min drive and there was a supermarket to suit everyone !
Overall a fantastic holiday in a beautiful villa!
Lively Almancil is less than 5 mins drive away. It has a wide range of shops - supermarkets, several banks, boutiques, 3 bakeries (with bread and pastries to die for!) & numerous cafes, bars & restaurants of all types & prices.
However for those wanting more within 15 mins there are many beaches & the world famous nature reserve 'Ria Formosa'. Also numerous sports facilities -13 golf courses, 2 waterparks, tennis, horse riding & more!
Nearby is the regional capital, Loule, with its lovely old buildings in cobbled streets. There is a large covered market which on Saturdays spills out onto the surrounding streets where the local farmers have their stalls selling their own fresh produce. In the main street are many boutiques & restaurants.
To the West are the beautiful Monchique mountains with the spa of Caldas de Monchique, Silves with its majestic castle, Sagres, Cape Vincent, the Western Atlantic coast & Lisbon.
