people found this review helpful

This was a family holiday which we thoroughly enjoyed relaxing by pool. The owner, Maria was very easy to contact and responded almost immediately to our emails, which was very helpful as we have never rented a private villa before. We were greeted by Helena and Isabel who provided us with directions to places to go to and were very friendly and helpful. Location was superb and away from all the noise and so peaceful. Would definitely recommend hiring a car to get around. The locals were very homely, friendly and helpful too. We have already recommended the villa to family.and friends.

“Home from Home”
Reviewed 29 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

My family really enjoyed our stay. Everything went well from start to finish. The welcome sign to greet us was a great touch.

The villa is fantastic. Just perfect for us. Home from home. Weather was very hot so the pool was heaven!!!! Everything was clean and tidy. Plenty of towels, kitchen equipment and even bikes!

We could not fault the villa. Very private. Very clean and a great place to chill. Within 10 mins of everything you need from the local town. Air con inside was a bonus for the kids to chill out!

We went to many places and found Loule and Tavira our favourites.

This is our type of property and location. Would come back.

The owner is very clean and detailed in communication whilst booking. All questions answered. Thanks Maria for a great time. Best holiday we have had in years.

Only constructive feedback I would give is that the photos on the web site do not do it justice!

“Perfect Vacation”
Reviewed 14 February 2013 for a stay in June 2012

This delightful villa was the perfect location for my family's vacation. It is surrounded by a gorgeous countryside and the house contained everything and more. Despite being in a foreign land, once arriving and stocking up on groceries (and wine) at the local supermarket, we lacked the need to leave this private oasis. My family and I did manage to break away and explore the local beaches, which didn't disappoint. After a full day of touring the beaches and towns throughout the Algarve, a quick drive was all it took to return to Casa dos Avos. Unfortunately, before we knew it our week was over and it was time to leave this idyllic place. The week was wonderful, relaxing and we all look forward to visiting again, very soon.

“Wonderful Villa”
Reviewed 27 September 2012 for a stay in September 2012

We stayed in this villa with our 2, sometimes not so easy to handle, twins of 20 month and it was just perfect for us. The owner is very nice and the contact was always good providing everything we needed, even 2 cots. It is a nice area to relax, very quiet all you´ll hear is a barking dog or donkey every once in a while. Even though it is in a rural area you will be in faros shopping center in 30 mins.
The villa itself is nicely furnished and very clean. All the amenities are there that one could possibly need.

“Quiet and relaxing with a lovely pool”
Reviewed 30 August 2012 for a stay in August 2012

We stayed here with our 2 children (11 and 8) and had a great holiday. The kids loved the pool and the grounds, especially the hammock. There was a lot of outdoor space which was great. The area was lovely, very quiet but with easy access to Estoi and to the motorway to travel round the Algarve. The satellite TV was the only disappointment as it had very few English language channels and only one British one (BBC World News) most of the other channels were in French or German. However TV was not the main purpose of our holiday so not a real problem!
