Located within the infamous ‘Golden Triangle’, south of Loulé the villa is a 20 minute drive from Faro airport and the favoured resorts of Vale Do Lobo, Quinta Do Lago, Vilamoura.

Lovely property and grounds. Clean and suitable for families. Only improvements I would suggest are as follows:
1) fix the toilets (one bedroom toilet didn’t flush but they sent someone round immediately)
2) upgrade sofa bed to double bed
Lovely holiday and we will be back!
This is a great villa in a perfect location with super facilities.
We had a wonderfully relaxing time in Jill’s villa. We were warmly greeted by Ana, whose team had done a great job cleaning and preparing the villa, and she made us feel at home straight away. The villa is light and airy, and all the rooms are spacious and clean. The large lounge is comfy and the kitchen was a good size with all the necessary facilities. It was helpful to be able to use the washing machines mid-stay. The master bedroom and big en-suite were terrific, with a large terrace outside with great views of the surrounding countryside and the sea in the distance.
There are lovely gardens outside with a good-sized pool, where we spent many blissful hours relaxing. The adjacent poolroom was handy and it was nice to have so many shaded areas to chill out in the hot sun. Our favourite times were the evening meals we had on the first floor terrace. The barbecue gave us some memorable meals but it was the sunset views which were the stars of the show. We were dazzled by the changing colours of the sky. The views really were amazing.
We found shopping easy in the supermarkets recommended in the information folder and visited some good restaurants in Loule and Almancil.
Our party of seven (age range 21 - 93!) had a thoroughly good time and declared it one of the best of our regular annual villa hols. Ana was superb in her greeting and ongoing support and we will definitely be recommending this villa to all our friends, but not on the same dates in case we decide to come back again next year! A very successful stay - thanks Jill and Ana.
Beautiful property with amazing outdoor space, pool and views.
The villa is absolutely beautiful, cozy, well maintened, with plenty of space for family and friends, child friendly and fully equipped with everything necessary. We couldn't get enough of the panoramic views and the surroundings. The location was perfect, only 10 min drive to the beach and optimal for exploring the Algarve coast.
Thank you Jill and Ana for having us!
Thank you Nicoleta. We very much enjoyed having you and your family and friends staying at our house. We look forward to seeing you again.
The villa is in a lovely setting with great views down to the sea. It is well equipped and when we had a couple of problems they were quickly resolved by the manager of the property. I would recommend the property to friends.
Nice villa, very clean & well located
We had a great family holiday at Casa Alta Vista. Jill is very helpful & the local property manager Ana is great, she resolved the small issues we had very quickly.
Stayed May 22-29th 2018
Beautiful location and setting. Secluded and spacious. Happily housed our two large families and never once felt that we were on top of each other. Outside, the grounds are well kept and the swimming pool we chose to have heated and it resulted in perhaps the warmest ever swimming pool we have ever been fortunate enough to experience. Jill the owner made sure everything ran like clockwork. If I was to be honest, the interior maybe due an update. Not tatty, just showing it’s age but no real problem as most of our time was spent down by the pool. Would recommend. Thanks again.
