Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday villa in Carvoeiro / Lagoa region - Casa Cuba

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 4. AL5496

VILLA CASA CUBA is situated on the modern development of Clube Golfemar which consists of high quality villas in a tranquil setting amidst tropical gardens and adjacent to the Vale de Milho Golf Course. The villa is situated in a Prime location - just 100m from the communal pool, children’s pool, and Bar/Restaurant. The property consists of 2 bedrooms with 2 en-suite bathrooms, lounge, and dining room, and furnished to a very high standard. The kitchen is fully fitted with modern appliances. The Villa now has FREE high speed Wi-Fi Broadband Internet, and UK TV, Movies and Sports Channels. The Villa is south facing, providing stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean from the lounge and master bedroom. It has its own private garden and partly shaded rear patio, which provides outside dining & BBQ. Sun beds and another BBQ are located on the roof terrace which is accessed via a staircase from the rear courtyard, and enjoys all-day sun and fabulous panoramic views of the coastline and mountains. The Villa is near many spectacular beaches, championship golf courses, and near to a small mini market, and 5 local quality restaurants. There are many attractions including 2 water parks and Zoo Marine just a short drive away.

COAST/BEACHES: There are some stunning beaches close by with the nearest Centianes being about 1km (10-15 min walk). Within 5 mins by car is our favourite beach - Praia de Marinha with its natural arches and rock stacks. The smugglers beach at Benagil and Albandera all have good beaches. Some have good beach restaurants. The coastline around Benagil is spectacular and the cliff walk from Benagil to Albandera is rated one of the best cliff walks in the Algarve. There are said to be 82 named beaches in the Algarve, not to mention the hidden coves.

GOLF &TENNIS: The Algarve is renowned for its excellent golf courses, and the owners are keen Golfers.

Casa Cuba is situated centrally to most of the best courses, thereby offering an excellent base for golfers.

Vale de Milho 9-hole par 3 course is on site - this is only a short course, but suitable for beginners and short game practice. The Nick Price / Pestana Golf Resort (Vale da Pinta,Gramacho, Silves and Alto Championship courses) are 10/15 mins drive from Golfemar. Pennina and the new Faldo and O'Connor Championship courses are all within a 15-minute drive. Salgados Links, Palmares and Golfe do Morgado are within a 20-minute drive. The Vilamoura courses are about 30 mins from the Villa.

Discounted green fees and special package deals are available on many courses.

Tennis can be booked at the Rocha Brava Tennis Centre, which is only a 10 minute walk from Golfemar.

CAR HIRE: Car hire is not essential, but is recommended in order to visit the many interesting places along this wonderful coastline, and inland to the mountains of Monchique. If you require a hire car we can recommend an excellent local company offering good value for money.

About Graham, June & Paul Butler

The Villa is owned by ourselves, Graham & June Butler and our son Paul Butler. We live in Preston and our son lives in Warwick.

Since our retirement we enjoy the winter sunshine in our Villa, and our son and his family usually visit at some time during the year.

We enjoy walking, golf and bird watching and good beaches to relax,

We update Casa Cuba each year during our time there.

Graham, June & Paul Butler purchased this villa in 2006

Why Graham, June & Paul Butler chose Carvoeiro / Lagoa region

We chose Casa Cuba because of the beautiful views of the ocean, and the tranquil location. It is situated in a quiet Cul-de-Sac near to the Pools and now Newly Opened Restaurant/Bar Grill.

We wanted a property that enjoyed winter sunshine, good beaches, good golf and good walking,and Casa Cuba ticked all these boxes for us.,

What makes this villa unique

When we first entered Casa Cuba and the electronic blinds went up we instantly fell in love with the wonderful views of the ocean.

We loved the gardens and peaceful location, the roof terrace ideal for the early evening gin and tonic or all day sunshine.

Besides all of that our favourite pastimes of, walking, golf and bird watching and good beaches to relax, are all available nearby.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a lovely holiday, It is so peaceful and relaxing, listening to the birds and watching for unusual birds landing in the garden.

The Villa has everything you could want and very well maintained.

  • 5 of 5

Well maintained villa. We found everything as described and extra touches including beach toys and plenty of tourist information. The photos don't do justice to the view from the roof terrace. The location is in easy walking of a supermarket and several good restraurants, but nicely away from the road making it a great retreat for hanging out. The pool is close and ideal for a change from the local beaches. Attractions are close by and the West coast surf is only an hours drive. We had a great time and recommend you visit

Review of stay at Casa Cuba 04/09/ - 18/09/15

  • 5 of 5

We are seasoned independent travellers who know the area well and have rented many properties in the Algarve over the years. Casa Cuba has been one of the best! The property was immaculate, with the best equipped kitchen I have seen in a rental property. There were even inflatable pool toys to keep our 2 year old entertained. The newly installed fibre broadband and excellent TV package was also a bonus (to anyone with young children). We particularly liked the electric shutters as they gave us extra peace of mind and welcome additional security. The Golfemar complex is quiet, very well kept with an excellent pool area and nice bar/restaurant. The views are excellent from the terrace. The local managing agent, Monica, is the best I have very dealt with, nothing was too much trouble and the minor issue we did have was resolved very quickly. We will be returning to the Carvoeiro area and will definitely look to stay a Casa Cuba again. 10/10! Regards, Paul and Sue - Sunderland.

First class villa - highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful to be back to this superb villa. Spotlessly clean and equipped with everything you need and more for your holiday. Great for a relaxing family holiday with the on-site pool and nearby beaches. New on-site restaurant serving delicious food with views to the lighthouse and sea. We would highly recommend this villa and location to family and friends.

Absolute bliss

  • 5 of 5

Our second visit to Casa Cuba and it really is a little gem of a holiday home. Spotlessly clean, a couple of very small glitches during our stay were quickly resolved and we enticed a family of azure magpies to the garden each morning with slices of Bimbo (local bread brand). The magnificently-sited pool was well-used by us and we often had it to ourselves (beginning of September). The Lighthouse, the on-complex bar and restaurant, had live music twice a week that (hallelujah) didn't depend on over-amplification and it was a delight to enjoy those views from sunrise to sunset. The photos don't do Casa Cuba justice. It is 'just right' for a quiet, relaxing holiday for a couple or family that likes a superb pool within a few steps and plenty of restaurants, beaches and facilities within a short walk or car ride. I think it is safe to say we will be back !

It has its own beach from which small boats can be taken to visit other beaches and coastal caves. It is in one of the most picturesque patches of the Algarve Coast. There are said to be 82 named beaches in the Algarve. The nearest large supermarket is Intermarche, which is on the road to Lagoa, approx 5mins by car.
