This was our second visit to Casa Rosa and again it did not disappoint. For those who have an interest in birdwatching and wildflowers the area is unsuppassed. The variety and number of rarer species is incredible. This coupled with a stay at Casa Rosa is perfect for a relaxing holiday. Each apartment is well equipped, clean and private. The swimming pool is a relaxing welcome after a days exploring. The hosts are very welcoming and helpful without being too instrusive. Car hire is a must but Casa Rosa is also within easy access of the airport. The beautiful beaches and countryside are all less than a 25 minute drive away. We would highly recommend a stay at Casa Rosa to anyone wanting to visit this quiet, unspoilt area of Portugal.

Room Tip: All rooms have excellent facilities, ground floor rooms offer a good patio by the pool.

Our choice of this area was based on the possibility of some good bird photography.
The owners of Casa Rosa proved to be most helpful with their knowledge of the area. We had researched the area but their additional input was invaluable. The quiet locality was perfect. The apartment was well equipped and in pristine condition. The pool was opened from its winter sleep a few days into our stay. It is a lovely pool and, as with the apartment, immaculately presented.
The nearby town of Moncarapacho provides all the daily needs and we had superb meals at "Antonios".

Room Tip: We were in Apartment 4. It is spacious, well equipped with lovely uninterrupted views over the countryside and a glimpse of the sea.

This is the third winter we have stayed in the apartments at Casa Rosa and we have yet to be disappointed. We were there for 7 weeks each time and love the lifestyle. Casa Rosa is about a mile from Moncarapacho, which has excellent restaurants, small supermarkets and a daily vegetable and fish market. Around Casa Rosa the roads are very good for cycles, which we took advantage of. The nearest beach, Fuseta, is about 3 miles away, and Olhao is worth whiling away an afternoon walking along the sea front. We chose apartment No 4 for our break as we wanted to be on the first floor (for the views,) and towards the front of the building (to get the warmth of south facing). Jan and Kjersti keep a very clean and tidy ship and the garden is well kempt. This area is really good for bird watching as there are lots of opportunities to see hoopoe, flamingos, spoonbills etc. Also storks nesting on top of the electric pylons. Tavira is the nearest large town and is very picturesque. Casa Rosa is the ideal place to spend some time in the countryside, but with the added attraction of the coast nearby.
Well worth a visit

Alongside the house there is an area for 8 pitches - 2 to each terraced area. A lovely spot. There is a male and female toilet; 1 hot water shower and 2 hot water whb's. Outside is a sink for washing up or for handwashing (cold water tap, but hot water can be taken from the whb's in showe/toilet block. For 3 euro you can use the washing machine. Rotary dryers on the site. Free wifi. Use of the outdoor pool, when weather warm enough! Adults only. Dogs allowed. All felt like a CL you would get in the UK.Nice and friendly, and quiet. A path alongside the property takes you into Moncarapacho (30 mins). You can get a bus into Olhao from there and then a train to Tavira, or on to Faro. There are good supermarkets in Moncarapacho and restaurants, coffee shops. We also walked up Cerro de Sao Miguel, the highest point in the Algarve (410m, gradient/ cycle track).

Room Tip: A winter destination - would be too hot in summer and not a lot of shade. Need to book ahead as most of the travellers stay on for a few months.

I must say it has already been a year since we visited Casa Rosa, but the memory still lingers in these post summer days. And what a memory it is. We decided to stay at Casa Rose just based on the reviews on TripAdvisor. It felt like a gamble because we were traveling with our 6 months old son, but it seemed nice in the pictures, and we preferred a smaller residence as apposed to a big commercial apartment complex you'd find in Albufeira.

The ride to Moncarapacho was shorter than expected from Faro airport, and we felt right at home after we met Jan-Ketil and Kjersti, the owners. We chose the bigger apartment, which was perfect, with a big open kitchen, a huge bathroom and lots of storage space. The beds were very comfortable, although we chose to sleep on the fold out coach (so our son could have the master bedroom).

The piece de resistance was the swimming pool, but also the quiet atmosphere and the beautiful surroundings really made this the perfect vacation. A lot of birdwatchers stay there during the summer and autumn, and they are not the noisy types apparently. We also made al lot of short trips around the towns of Olhao and Fuseta, which offer the more mainstream beach experience with the Algarve beaches you know from the brochures.

All in all it was the perfect vacation, the owners are really lovely hosts, who serve great meals and breakfasts. This is the perfect place for anyone who doesn't really care for the busy towns west of Faro and is looking for a more personal and high-end experience (without paying .
