Relaxing stay in lovely surroundings

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from our first stay in Casa Ventura but it won't be our last. The property is beautifully maintained; the accommodation is spacious for two with every convenience. The owners, Maria and Luciano, were very welcoming and helpful - nothing seemed too much trouble for them from picking us up at the airport to arranging car hire or suggesting places to eat.

We had a great, relaxing holiday.

One of the Algarves Best Kept Secrets

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have returned and stayed at Casa Ventura since finding it in 2003.The accommodation, pool and gardens are always kept in immaculate condition.Marie and Luciano the owners are the perfect hosts always available to provided all the help and advise when needed whilst allowing you all the privacy you may need.Its location in rural area of Falfosa and Santa Barbara De Nexe provides the ideal position to explore the local countryside but close enough to access the Beaches , Towns and shopping areas within a 15minute drive. We would recommend hiring a car to fully enjoy the area.

From the second myself and my husband arrived at this beautiful property we were made to feel welcome and comfortable. Actual is started even before we arrived as from booking Marie helped us organise and was on hand to assist every step of the way. I can honestly say it was one of the most relaxing weeks we have had in a long time and I really can not gush about the place enough. If you are considering booking this villa our advice would be 100% go for it, you wont regret it. Its clean, well presented and in a good location. Thank you so much for such a fantastic week- we will be back!!

Home from Home, fantastic getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casa Ventura at the end of September 2013, this was our 2nd visit here and it was as good as the first. Marie and Luciano are the perfect hosts, who have created a fabulous relaxing getaway, even Lolly and Mischa made us feel part of the family. Luciano even showed us his skills at table tennis!!....,Although the weather wasn't wall to wall sunshine, Marie was for ever hopeful that the sun would shine for us... We love Casa Ventura and will certainly be returning. Thank you Marie and Luciano, we will see you next year.

We have just returned from a wonderful holiday staying at Casa Ventura..Marie & Luciano spoil you & make you feel like one of the family.

The no children policy is great, you can relax by the pool, in perfect peace & quiet.

Marie & Luciano are very obliging to drop you off & collect you from local restaurants for a tiny fee.

The accommodation is spacious for a holiday rental & very well equipped.

We were a little sad to be coming back home..:(

Thank you guys for a lovely holiday..maybe c u next year..:)

A large shopping centre within 10 minute drive away - and plenty of historical places of interest in surrounding areas.
