The house and pool are great and gardens and views simply spectacular!
My family had an absolutely fantastic time at this property. We were a 3 generation group of 6 with set of grand parents, parents and 2 very active boys. David was terrific and gave us great info on local towns, beaches and restaurants. The house and pool were super clean when we arrived and kept clean by great staff. Tennis court was amazing, great condition and one of the best views of any I could ever imagine. The location is also terrific, very close (like 5 mins) to two great small towns with beaches and then Lagos only 10 mins away, which we really enjoyed. Also - location is great jumping off point to explore all of the central and western Algarve beaches. We loved every minute of our 8 night stay and would recommend very highly.
An unbelievable place to stay!
We had an amazing stay at Cama da Vaca and thoroughly recommend the villa!
The house is completely secluded but with easy access to Burgau and Luz.
We really enjoyed the pool and tennis court but also recommend people take time to explore the beautiful surfing beaches on the west coast, which are within easy distance.
The owner was very helpful in organising our stay - thank you David!
A stunning villa, beautiful inside and out, and the view is just brilliant.
Very peaceful, but only a very short drive into Burgau and Luz, or a lovely walk along the cliffs to either.
We got married in the garden, and it was a magnificent day.
Great organisation from owner and agent as well, and the maid was also great.
Perfect for those who love the unspoilt Algarve
This really is a very beautiful gem where the glowing reviews are fully justified. We have just returned from a week at Cama da Vaca and are already planning our next visit. We were a group of 11 who have been visiting the Algarve for many years and were unanimous that this is by far the loveliest place we have stayed.
To start with, the view is breath taking (I would frequently spot one of the group, even the children, just gazing off into the distance). The gardens are a delightful maze of paths and tranquil vantage points from which to enjoy the views. The house itself, emerges from these gardens with a rare rustic charm. Inside is light and spacious, with a wonderfully vibrant use of colour that links the inside to the wonderful outside blues and turquoises of the sea and sky and pool. Everything is beautifully presented from the crisp linens, to the fresh bathrooms, even down to the detail of the artwork on the walls.
For the more energetic in our group, the tennis court was a big hit (pardon the pun). There will be very few tennis courts that can rival the view.
This is a fantastic location from which to explore the Western Algarve. Even though the house feels private and secluded, it is only a short drive to supermarkets and the glorious beaches (Zaviel is our family favourite).
David and his family have created something very special at Cama da Vaca that we fell in love with and hope to return to soon.
Idyllic setting breathtaking views
2 heavenly weeks The gardens are sculptured into the hillside with a gate onto the cliff path. Inside the house the spacious rooms are beautifully furnished. There are exciting hidden seating areas in and outside I was most impressed with the traditional Portuguese pottery in plain and decorated terra cotta in use alongside the modern. How trusting. Everything kept beautifully by Adelia’s deft hand every day. A place of beauty
Fantastische villa voor een familievakantie
Prachtig huis, mooi, gezellig en stijlvol ingericht. In het huis zelf zijn 4 slaapkamers waarvan 2 groot en luxe zijn. De cottage is een prima aanvulling als je met meer dan 8 personen bent. Prachtige tuin met diverse zitjes, zwembad met ligstoelen. Wij waren met een familie van 10 volwassenen en 3 kleine kinderen. Iedereen kon prima z'n plek vinden.
Elke dag is er voor 4 uur een huishoudster die schoonmaakt en wast. We hebben een topvakantie gehad. Dit huis is een absolute aanrader.
