What makes this house unique

When going around the Mediterranean garden surrounding the house, one will feel as if we were entering a fantasy land, which will surprise us in its every corner. When inside the house, the possibility to view the garden from each window will give you the impression of being embraced by mother nature.

Highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

The villa is perfect. Everything you could need and then some. like fresh pomegranates ripening on the trees. But what really makes this place extraordinary are the hosts, Julio and Luis. They truly represent everything that is wonderful and special about Portugal.

Thank you again, Maria and Michel

  • 5 of 5

Casa Catita is a gem. We stayed there for four weeks in March 2013 and every day we discovered something new in the garden. Júlio and Lúis are the best ambassadors for Algarve that you can think of and they made our visit an unforgettable one. The house is so charming and could easily be shared by two small families. The house is very well equipped and we didn’t miss anything. We are aiming to come back again and are recommending any of our friends to take the opportunity to stay in this little paradise in Algarve.

Casa Catita är en pärla. Vi hyrde in oss där under fyra veckor i mars 2013 och varje dag hittade vi något nytt i den fantastiska trädgården. Júlio och Lúis är de bästa ambassadörer man kan tänka sig för Algarve och gjorde vår vistelse oförglömlig. Huset är så charmigt och passar utmärkt också för två mindre familjer. Huset är väl utrustat och vi saknade ingenting förutom möjligen potatisskalaren och osthyveln :-). Vi kommer gärna tillbaka och rekommenderar våra vänner att uppleva detta lilla paradis i Algarve

Being there is always a pleasure in al senses; the house (full equipe) placed in a strategic area, the garden (what a garden!!), the poun plenty of frogs and nishkigoi(s) (coloured carps), the Alcantarilha''s Market (mercado)... and of course Luis and Julio, thank you for doing life easy and plesant

See you soon.

Cheers
