The Latcham family from Bushey in Hertfordshire: Hi Steve,

Just wanted to drop you and your wife a line to say how much we enjoyed staying at Casa Romantica for the first week of our holiday in Portugal. Your villa is absolutely superb and was everything we could have wished for.

We had great fun in the pool and exploring that part of the Algarve - swimming with dolphins at the Zoomarine being one of the memorable outings. I know we'd like to stay there again at some point in the future - especially when our youngest is old enough to do the dolphin swim as well, instead of having to be an envious spectator!

Thanks again and best regards


The Patchington Family from Warrington: Hi Steve,

We just wanted to drop you a line to thank you for letting us stay in your villa.

We had a wonderful holiday. The weather was red hot everyday.

Your villa is beautiful there is everything in it that you could ever need.

The information folder, which was in the villa for us was also spot on. I don’t think you would get that much detailed info staying in a hotel with a rep!

Our son loved the swimming pool he was like a prune by the end of the 2 weeks!

So thank you again for letting us stay there we loved it and hopefully we will be able to return in the future.

Best wishes

Absolutely fantastic villa, has everything you could ever need

  • 5 of 5

We holidayed here at the end of august, there was myself, my partner, our 3 children (9,6 and 1) and my parents. The villa was very well equipped to be classed as a home from home, the children specifically liked the playroom with PlayStation and boxes of toys! We BBQd a few times over our fortnight stay, ate in, strolled into Guia and took a taxi into near by alberfueira (aprx €13 one way). We found the maintenance team, the gardeners, cleaners and pool man very polite and friendly and the property was immaculate... cannot reiterate enough how the pictures do not do this property justice, when we arrived(to a welcome pack of essentials) we were surprised how big it was, absolutely ideal for us all, the only slight issue we had was when the wifi ran slow the children complained ... but what more could they possibly want 🙄?🙄? amazing place, amazing people, maybe a little hilly for less able or elderly with a 10-15 min walk to the village and supermarket but all in all fantastic

Great Villa, Great location

  • 5 of 5

We had our family holiday there and it was excellent. The villa is immaculate and the facilities are brilliant. The heated pool, wi-fi and skytv kept us nice and busy and the kids never wanted to leave the place !

Close to town and good shops, golf nearby and not far from Galle beach and Albeufuira but far enough out to be private and restful.

We will go again !

Thanks from Dave and the family.

Absolute Gem

  • 5 of 5

An amazing villa with everything you could wish for on a small estate. We stayed with extended family, 5 adults and 3 children, more than enough room and equipment for everyone. Maid service 3 times a week plus a pool cleaner and gardener and it was never intrusive, very nice people. We walked into Guia and ate at several of the restaurants which were all reasonably priced. The local supermarket had the basics and the Shopping Centre has a huge supermarket with everything you could ever need. Went to Gale beach most days which is a 10/15 min drive, children loved the rock pools. Steve and Jackie were very helpful whenever I contacted them.

I would not hesitate in recommending this villa and look forward to returning sometime.

A very impressive villa which is well described & suited our needs perfectly. The cleanliness is impressive & the three times a week maid service was extremely helpful leaving us with all the more time to enjoy ourselves. The three separate outside seating areas (pool, roof terrace & barbecue areas) are very useful, it meant that different groups (or individuals) could have space of their own if they need to have a quiet moment!

The area is also fabulous, Guia town centre is about a 15-20 minute stroll away & is packed with good quality restaurants although many do not open until 8pm during the summer & there is a great local bar less than 5 minutes away. The Adego Do Cantor vineyard is well worth a visit & is just a short 5 minute drive away.

All in all an excellent property I found Steven to be very helpful & I would very highly recommend Casa Romantica as a fantastic place to stay.
