Peace and harmony in the western Algarve.This romantic cottage surrounded by charming countryside is bang between the town of Lagos and its lovely beaches and the unspoilt west coast.The typical algarvian village of Barão de São João is just 1 km down the road.Casa Leela has been sensitively built with chestnut beamed ceilings,terracotta tiled floor and a gentle flair of the oriental, with its Moroccan tadelak chimney and bathroom.The sheltered outside patio lends itself to evening relaxation and entertainement.

Lovely home and base for a relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

We spent two great, relaxing weeks in Casa Leela. Yan and Andrea were very welcoming and full of tips and advice (they speak at least 4 languages between them, which is also helpful). The house had everything one could wish for, including a well equipped kitchen, fast internet, TV, bbq, etc. It is situated in a very quiet, charming countryside location within walking distance (10min) to the nearest village, where you find authentic pubs and restaurants. Both Lagos and beaches are only a 15-20 min car drive away. Great base to discover the South West. We'd come back any time!

Erholung pur!

  • 5 of 5

Wir wurden sehr nett empfangen - sogar mit einer Flasche Wein und frischem Obst! - und der Hausherr hat uns alles erklärt und auch gute Tipps für Restaurants, Strände etc. gegeben.

Das Häuschen selbst ist in einwandfreiem Zustand und hat eine Ausstattung, die wirklich keine Wünsche offen lässt (z.B. Waschmaschine, Küchenausstattung, sogar einen Sonnenschirm für den Strand).

Das tollste aber ist der Außenbereich, der wie eine kleine Oase anmutet. Hier kann man wunderbar im Schatten der Bäume in der Hängematte relaxen oder in der Sitzecke ein Gläschen Wein trinken. Man ist umgeben von Natur!

Es hat uns sehr gut gefallen und wir hoffen, dass wir nochmal die Möglichkeit haben, wieder zu kommen. Diesmal dann aber länger als eine Woche!

Malerischer Ort, bezauberndes Häuschen und liebe Gastgeber

  • 5 of 5

Unser Urlaub in der Casa Leela in Barao de Sao Joao war traumhaft. In der Casa hat es uns an nichts gefehlt (vor allem die Küche war sehr gut ausgestattet und das Bad sehr schön). Die Terasse war unser Lieblingsort um uns von Stadt und Strandbesuchen auszuruhen (hier waren die Tipps von Andrea richtig gut). Das Dorf Barao de Sao Joao hat uns auch sehr gut gefallen vor allem das Café/Restaurant Baraos Bistro (BB's), das während unseres Aufenthalts eröffnet und uns mit genialem Essen geradezu umgehauen hat (vor allem für diese niedrigen Preise). Wenn es nicht noch soviel mehr auf der Welt zu sehen gäbe, würden wir direkt wieder hier buchen. Die Casa war einfach der perfekte Ort um abzuschalten, zu lesen und wenn einem danach war, waren Städte wie Lagos die Südküste aber auch die bezauberne Costa Vincentina ganz nah. Danke an Yan-Éric und Andrea für die tolle Zeit.
