We have just returned from our stay at the beautiful Casa Orleandro. This villa exceeded our expectations in every way. We were there to celebrate my husbands 40th Birthday with 18 family members. The bedrooms were spacious, spotlessly clean and all with en suite bathrooms. The living space was great with plenty of room to dine and relax. The kitchen had everything you would need to cater for large parties. The outdoor areas were all presented beautifully, two BBQ's, plenty of sunloungers, two fridge freezers, large dining area and the most amazing pool. The villa was cleaned everyday by a lovely young lady( who's name I can't remember, sorry) The beach is 10mins away and a Aldi supermarket is only 3 mins down the road. Wifi worked well and we paid extra to have air con, which is a must in the summer months. Chris the owner was great, always there on email to answer any questions and gave us some invaluable information. Thank you for the best week and we'll be booking again for next year.
ALREADY BOOKED FOR 2018!
Following on from my initial review in 2015, we have now stayed at this first class villa for 3 years and have already booked up for 2018 and beyond!!!
We are a group on 11 ladies who have been travelling to the Algarve together for the last 10 years and in Casa Oleandro , we have finally found the villa that ticks all of our many boxes!!
The villa is just perfect for all of our requirements and every year that we go back its just like going home!
• 20 mins to Faro airport
• 10 mins to Villamoura with its many bars and restaurants
• A hire car is a must to get to all the lovely beaches.
• Large outdoor dining space. Every year with have a special night when we get dressed up and the Algarve Angels come and cook up a fantastic 3 course meal for us.
• 7 really nice en-suite double bedrooms over 3 floors - no arguments about who sleeps where!
• Beautiful large pool area with plenty of sun beds and shade for those who want it.
• Villa cleaned almost every day by Sue who was very thorough.
• Pool cleaned twice a week and the surrounding garden areas are very well kept.
• The Kitchen is large and extremely well equipped, with everything you could possibly want.
• There is a Large American fridge on the pool level to keep the beverages and ice creams cold!
• Aldi supermarket is less than 5 minutes drive away, and this year we found a nice butcher shop in the pretty village of Boliquieme.
Chris the owner is a really great guy and has so much local knowledge to share with his guests and any problems or questions that we had, before, during and after our stay were dealt with immediately.
If you decide to book this villa, you will definitely NOT be disappointed! But get in quick as this hidden secret is becoming a bit too well known!!
We stayed at this villa for a week from 27th august until the 3rd September this year. 10 adults, 4 children and a baby and it suited us perfectly. We really couldn't have asked for anything more.
The cleaner came every day, aprt from the last day. But she didn't disturb us at all.
Amazing size, more than we could have wished for. A few steps into the pool and then a good depth to start with and it got deeper. The kids were in and out all day and even in the evening. My auntie has MS and the pool worked really well for her she managed to walk down the steps with some help but really enjoyed herself. Plenty of sun beds, very comfortable too! Ah also, each bedroom had two pool towels in as well as bathroom towels which were both changed once during our weeks stay.
Every single one was a brilliant size. Considering how many people were staying at the villa once you were in your bedroom you felt like you had your own space and all had a en suite which was great. Beds really comfortable too.
Kitchen/living and dining room
All very good sizes, plenty of room for everybody. Good fridge space.
Included in your stay. But isn't concistantly available, dips in and out throughout the day.
We paid extra for this and it was 100% worth it. Especially in August.
Chris got hold of the local taxi company for us James holiday services. Who were brilliant all week.
All in all we couldn't recommended this villa any more. From start to finish everything ran smoothly.
Beautiful villa, but definitely need a car, but the taxi companies are brilliant. Rooms are all off decent size & everything is spotlessly clean, the kitchen has everything could need. The garden is beautiful and the pool is a perfect size for villa, air conditioning is definitely recommended and works very efficiently. We had one minor blip, but Chris was round within an hour & had it sorted by the next day. The outside eating & BBQ area is perfect. I would highly recommend this villa & hope to use it again in the future.
We went with 2 other families and their kids and there was plenty of living space. The bedrooms were spacious and tastefully decorated, all with ensuites. The outdoor area was presented beautifully with plenty of sun loungers, larger than expected swimming pool, bbq facilities, 2nd fridge freezer, and a large dining area to enjoy the local views. The owners have thought of everything. It was an absolute delight to spend my holiday in such a well presented Villa. A car is definetly needed as the local supermarket and restaurants are not in walking distance.
We visited this villa in July 2016, there were 8 adults and 6 children in the party and everyone had a brilliant time. The villa is cleaned 5 days a week and she is here for a good 3 hours each day and can usually resolve any problems or questions you may have. Kitchen is well stocked with plates/bowls and cutlery, gas and charcoal barbecues and outdoor dining area are nice in the evenings. Bedrooms are spacious and each have there own bathrooms some with baths and some just showers. Could do with a car as its a bit up in the hills but means you get a lovely view of the sea that is 10 mins away. The only negative I can find is the pool wasn't clean when we arrived and wasn't cleaned for over a week.
Visited here with my partner and 8 other friends. We all had ample spacious bedrooms and as a bonus no one had to share a bathroom (only the couples) The seating areas were fantastic and the facilities on offer were perfect. 2 fridge freezers were great, having one downstairs by the pool was a total winner. The BBQ area was a real added bonus and we spent every night sat upstairs around the table on the balcony playing cards, chatting and drinking. Some random late night swims were also a lot of fun. The maid was lovely, a real asset to the villa. We hired a car and so we went off most days exploring, although some stayed behind, this villa was a great place to spend all of your time if that's is what you are looking for in a holiday.
If it weren't for the fact that we like to try new places, this would definitely be a great place to go back to.
