“Nice villa, beautiful grounds, lovely area”
Reviewed 26 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Very basic accommodation which you would expect with a rented villa. It is within a locked compound with really beautiful gardens and very quiet. Very clean, the owner is very nice and nothing is too much trouble. Nice touch was very basic welcome pack which as we arrived on a Sunday was handy although we had to buy washing up liquid bin liners and dishcloths which maybe could have been included cos as usual you buy it and then leave loads behind. Maybe this sort of stuff could be left for next arrival? Mind you we were provided with dishwasher tabs and laundry tabs so swings and roundabouts really! . Pool/maintenance guy came everyday, and again very minor problems were dealt with immediately. Pool cannot be heated which if you stayed in May or June could be a problem. Barbecue area lovely. All in all we had a lovely holiday here - I would recommend hiring a car for a few days to get around - Old town is too far to walk and beach although walkable was a bit too far for our six year old. Some lovely restaurants very near.

“Wonderful Villa relaxing holiday”
Reviewed 6 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We have just come back from a family holiday at villa casa velha. We had a great 2 weeks relaxing, the villa is very private in lovely grounds
Although the villa is quite basic it has everything you need for a comfortable stay. The villa was clean on arrival and the welcome pack was handy. We had a child with us who has limited mobility this villa was great for her.
The teenagers enjoyed the wifi and the pool was enjoyed by all the family especially the children who enjoyed being in it late into the evening.
There are plenty of restaurants and bars local to the villa and it was about a 15min walk to gale beach which was gorgeous.
All in all an excellent holiday and would definitely go back.

Dear Mr Keith Rolleston,

Thank you very much for your review.
We would like to inform you that all the negative points you mentioned were solved. Now the villa as a electric oven.
I really appreciate your review and thanks.

“Delightful location and gardens, villa basic”
Reviewed 18 July 2011 for a stay in July 2011

The location is superb, as are the gardens of this villa. Perhaps that is what makes the actual villa itself- disappointing.Its's the attention to detail that I felt was missing. No welcome pack, having to shop immediately for toilet paper,washing up liquiid and salt. The villa interior appears 'tired'- and it takes a week to finally master the dated controls to take a tepid shower.The pillows are very uncomfortable, and I had to purchase a hair dryer despite the ad stating it was provided.I understand that you can contact the owner should anything be amiss, but I didn't want to spend my holiday complaining. The internet access which I needed was via dongle and ran out after 2 days. The owner assured me that it would be topped up-alas it wasn't. Outside lights-only 2 (essential) worked, and I was disappointed the pool lights also didn't work.(Would have loved a midnight swim).Windows needed a clean, and I could have knitted a jumper with the cobwebs underneath the dining chairs. Alas, I've hired better villas in the Algarve than this.
