Excellant value, relaxing retreat, convenient for beaches and interesting towns

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in Casa Donna Lisa and had a lovely relaxing time. It is part of a gated compound with ample grounds and private, we felt secure and yet nicely remote.

The villa is quirky and characterful, had everything we needed and wanted. The salt-water pool was great, and well-used by us. Outside there are plenty of shady places and we particularly liked the outdoor lounge area for relaxing at any time during the day. With the bar area, and another covered dining area, and the large roof terrace you are spoilt for choice.

Graham and Bernadette were always close by, but absolutely not at all intrusive, just friendly and helpful and eager to do what they could to make your stay enjoyable.

We enjoyed travelling around the area exploring, although we didn't venture very far, but then with Olhao nearby we didn't feel the need to. We enjoyed a great dolphin trip from Albufeira as well as a trip around the lagoon from Fusetta, where we also enjoyed the beach and bar. A trip to Tavira is heartily recommended.

Supermarkets close by in Olhao, very close to the motorway so easy access to Spain and the West Coast.

Nothing bad to say, would consider staying again if we visited the area.

Spacious, Good location

  • 4 of 5

Lovely outdoor space, pool perfect for our 3 children not to deep or large. Lots of outdoor seating and a great bar area. The owners Were really helpful and lovely people.

The location is great as you are just 5 minutes from the motorway which takes you to which ever regions you wish to visit.

The only negative is that there is no air conditioning and as we stayed during August it was extremely hot at night time and we found it difficult to sleep even with Fans and windows open. It was very safe there with electronic gates no one overlooked us either.

Fantastic Holiday!

  • 5 of 5

As a family we loved this holiday, spent two weeks and enjoyed every minute. The villa has everything you need, and outside area was a fantastic space to relax and enjoy the hot weather. Graham and Bernadette were wonderful hosts and so accommodating as well as their daughter Samantha. It is a great base to explore the eastern side of the Algarve, you definitely need a car.

We were a little worried when we booked this as it looked too good to be true on the website.

However on arrival it turned out to be even better than it looks. A beautiful converted farmhouse with masses of outside space and a beautifully clean pool.

There is every thing you could possibly need equipment wise and enough towels to supply the whole village :o)

Graham & Bernadette made us very welcome and although we did not see much of them as they made sure that we had our privacy. We left feeling that we had made some new friends.

On our next visit to Portugal we will definitely be booking this property.

Amazing , relaxing week away!

  • 5 of 5

Well what can I say! We have just arrived home after a week away at This villa and we have loved every minute. We arrived early hours of the morning and was greeted by Graham who showed us around and Bernadette had left us a welcome pack of food and drink until we could get to the shops. The villa was also really clean and well maintained. The grounds of the villa were beautiful with so much space and gorgeous places to sit ( especially the bar and under the pergola) . The salt water pool was great and our teenage son spent most of his time in it. Inside - the villa had everything we needed, Sky channels, wifi, dishwasher, abundance of towels, fans the list goes on. We really had a week of true relaxation . We hired a car and spent a few days having a nose around the local areas and beaches but we spent nearly all our time at the villa as we loved it so much. Graham and Bernadette were great hosts and their daughter Sam helped out loads before we arrived answering our questions. If you want a week away from it all with everything you need them look no further
