Stayed there a couple of days in May 2018 with a friend, posting a review only now. Cosy little appartment, ground floor. Each apartment has it's own terrace with a bbq.They gave us good advice for places to visit and restaurants. And we had this lovely cat visiting us everyday.

If all you need is relax and peace, this place is the perfect match. Nina and Paul were the perfect hosts, very friendly and helpful at all times. We arrived pretty late at night, yet both of theme were there waiting for us. The apartments have everything you may need and very comfortable. Private barbecue, plenty of board-games, an amazingly clean pool, electric bikes to borrow... It was a great experience. It is very difficult to believe that neither Nina nor Paul have ever worked in hospitality before. Their service was excellent, they know exactly what the travellers expectations are and they will do their best to meet them. Thank you Nina and Paul for the amazing holiday. Highly recommended!

Casa Ventura is far more beautiful in the flesh and well worth a visit. The garden and grounds are beautiful and immaculately kept. The swimming pool is brilliant; clean, relaxing and the perfect temperature. The owners made me and my partner feel so welcome. There is a great vibe at Casa Ventura and Marie made us feel at home. We felt welcome, relaxed and part of the Casa Ventura family. Great amenities and a fab outdoor games room. WIFI was really good. Essentials such as milk, bread, water, cheese and ham were waiting for us when we arrived as was a nice bottle of vino - really nice touch. For me the gardens were magical with fig and almond trees, gorgeous climbing blooms, birds and the resident kitty and pooch :) A car is highly recommended but the upside is that you are away from the hustle and bustle of a busy and noisy resort. Casa Ventura is close to Faro airport (about 15 mins drive) and various other little villages, towns and beaches are a short drive away so you're never too far. Casa Ventura is a fantastic wee place and I would love to go back.
