All principal rooms have air conditioning and there are two wood burning stoves for a more traditional feel. There are four double/twin bedrooms, three of which open directly onto the gardens, and an additional pair of beds in the tower room which has proved very popular as a hideaway for older children. The master suite is located to the side of the central tower and has its own balcony with views towards the sea. The maid visits once during the week, and the pool maintenance company and gardener every Monday afternoon. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: 57872/AL

Stunning retreat
This place is nestled in some of the most amazing scenery, looking out to see framed by the hills. It’s a slice of heaven. The villa is stunning and well equipped. We couldn’t have asked for more. The pool is 10/10 and bonus points for being salt water rather than chlorine, meaning you didn’t smell when you came out. The space, privacy and sun made for an unforgettable trip.

Great villa in peaceful location
We've been coming to this beautiful villa for many years with the family. It's peaceful, very private and though in a rural location it's only a 20 -30 minute drive to Faro and/ or the beautiful Algarve beaches.

Rustic charm
Beautiful villa, amazing views! Could have stayed another week! We booked the casa with another family and the layout worked really well as we all had our own space! The table tennis was a huge hit with the teenagers. And the outside kitchen was a hit with my husband! Great base for exploring the Algarve, but car essential. Paul the owner very quick to respond to any queries. A very stress free holiday and would definitely go back.

Superb luxury villa in a stunning location
This is a beautiful and immaculately kept villa. It will sleep 10 comfortably and all the rooms are spacious and airy. It has every possible amenity with a maid visiting every day. The gardens surrounding the villa are extensive and extremely pleasant with stunning views towards the coast. There is a wonderful but very private pool located down some steps with an uninterrupted outlook. This is where we spent most of our time - including during the evenings using the lovely built in barbecue. There are plenty of things to see nearby (and beyond) but frankly the nicest times were spent just hanging out at 'the Casa'. Amazingly good.

Perfect family accommodation
Great villa. Excellent facilities. Ideal for large group or family. Set in the hills above Faro. Amazing views and peaceful. Car essential (as advised) but still plenty of restaurants only few minutes drive away. Lovely garden, pool and BBQ area. Would not hesitate to stay again. Good communication and back up from owner Paul (many thanks!)

Amazing villa!
This villa is amazing, it is huge and feels so nice to be in, we were 2 families who had plenty of space to not feel on top of each other. The bedrooms were lovely and bathrooms, the lounge was nice to relax in, we never needed the dining room. Kitchen was huge. It was lovely having air con in all rooms, although even in the height of summer, the villa was very cool. The pool was lovely, very clean, and the kitchen & toilet down there was very useful. We could fault nothing at all, it was a dream villa. There is nothing around though, but we were aware of that, although we did get a taxi to a restaurant one night, that was very cheap. We hired a car which is a must for this villa. Paul the owner, was extremely helpful with any queries we had, you could tell he cared for the property. I would recommend this villa.

Casa Estrela - Highly recommended.
We are a party of 5 adults and 5 children (aged 10-16) just back after spending a lovely week at Casa Estrela in Jul 18. The villa offers excellent accommodation, a superb 11x6m pool & pool area, and an abundance of indoor and outdoor space including a good size lawn in front which is ideal for family games. What's more the property boasts a genuinely beautiful hillside setting with stunning views of the surrounding countryside, down to Faro and the ocean. Owner Paul's descriptions of the property, facilities and surroundings are honest and accurate and I have little doubt that every one of the numerous 5 star reviews is genuine. Paul kept in touch so we had all the information needed prior to our trip He was also available for advice during the week but the Casa is so well equipped with clear instructions and there are current guidebooks and recommendations covering beaches, leisure activities, restaurants and places of interest, so we had no reason to call on him. In short - a great experience, highly recommended!

Superb!
Wonderfully remote Villa located in the hills with beautiful views of the algarve coastline. Brilliant facilities in the Villa including a generously sized pool along with a poolside BBQ, kitchen, and toilet. A couple of bars and restaurants within walking distance but a car will be essential for trips to major towns such as Faro (15 minute drive). Couldn't recommend enough, would certainly stay here again.

How to get there
Casa Estrela is at the top end of Bordeira village, north of Estoi. You will definitely need a car, as the villa is some 600m from the main road - half of this is a fairly level unmade local authority road passing Casa Nomanico - and half is a calçada driveway that winds its way onwards up the hillside. The nearest shop is a five minute drive away.
Activities nearby
Golf course (within 30 mins drive)Tennis court
