“Portugese Idyll”
Reviewed October 20, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

My husband and I have just had a blissfully relaxing week here with our 16 month old daughter. The house is in a fantastic location and is really well equipped. We were lucky with the weather which made it all the better.

Eve and Graham were fab to deal with and, despite our extremely last minute booking, sourced a cot and highchair for our daughter.

We have stayed in the area before but this is the best villa we've rented so far. We hope to be back!

Great to hear that you had a relaxing time at Casa Oliveiras Velhas and that it all worked well with your young daughter? After your visit we have bought a travel cot and high chair, so we are all prepared.
Hope to welcome you again next year

“Beautiful villa in tranquil rural setting.”
Reviewed August 7, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

My family and I spent a lovely week at the villa. Perfect location to relax and enjoy the tranquility. It is very well equipped and maintained to a very high standard. My children spent every possible moment in the lovely pool. It is well located to discover the Algarve and the charming less touristy towns and villages. 5 mins from Loule which is full of character has a great market with good quality produce- fish,meats,breads,olives etc. Also large supermarket a few mins drive away. I would definitely highly recommend this villa to of all ages.
