Fantastic stay in a beautiful villa
We had a wonderful stay at the Casa Helandria. It’s a fantastic size with a beautiful garden / pool area. It’s quiet without feeling too isolated and in great proximity to get to the beach, Almancil town center and local golf courses.
Andy was a pleasure to deal with and was very communicative, he was kind enough to let us stay beyond our checkout time so that we could enjoy the pool rather than waiting at the airport!
We would thoroughly recommend the villa and can’t wait to head back next Summer.
Super clean villa with a beautiful garden.
A home from home experience with everything you require for a brilliant stay. We had a great time & hope to return. Thank you Andy & Helen.
Another fantastic holiday at Casa Helandria!
This is the 3rd time we've stayed at Casa Helandria and for 2 families of 3, it fits the bill perfectly. The location is good - you're a short car journey from VDL and QDL and the quality of the villa is great. The pool is great for the children (our kids were 10 and 16 and competent swimmers) and gets the sun for the majority of the day. The house is really well equipped, like home from home and we enjoyed the BBQ facility on a couple of occasions!
Super holiday,we will be back for a 4th visit in the not too distant future.
Relaxing family holiday
Lovely clean villa, quiet location with secluded garden. The kids loved the pool infact we had to bribe them to get out. The villa has everything you could possibly want with the added bonus of a hair dryer and beach towels which saves on luggage. The location is close to all amenities and the beach.
Plenty of days spent lazing by the pool followed by a bbq. A great family holiday and we would love to return.
Excellent stay at Casa Helandria
Stayed at this villa for 10 days. Lovely two storey building in super condition. Ground floor had well equipped kitchen, two bedrooms, bathroom and separate toilet. First floor consists of master bedroom with ensuite and lounge with large balcony overlooking pool. The pool area is a very good space and again well equipped. Gardens surround the villa including a beautiful, covered seating area which is accessed by a short concrete path from the pool area. Inside front gate has stoned area along with a covered car port. Excellent villa for a quiet, relaxing holiday. 20 mins from Faro airport. Car is probably essential but taxis are easily available. Lots of restaurants within 10 mins drive. Superb stay in a superb property.
Ideally situated, clean, well equiped and very comfortable.
We have been to this area several times but Casa Helandria is our new favourite villa. Close to the airport and ideally situated for supermarkets, beach, restaurants golf etc. The villa had everything we required and we settled in very easily. We found the pool area and gardens well kept and found lots of areas to sunbathe or cool off in the shade. We very rarely left the poolside as the villa was quiet and peaceful and we found it very easy to relax there. Andy was excellent to deal with and all communication was prompt and helpful.
We will be back.
A few beaches are 3km from the villa, where you will find a number of restaurants and beach bars.
Faro airport is only a 20 minutes drive from the Villa. Since the new motorway opened from Lisbon it is possible to drive from Lisbon in under 3 hours.
Almancil is 3 km away offering a variety of shops, restaurants and bars, bakers and even the English butcher, there are a variety of supermarkets to choose from to cater for all tastes, post office, police station, several banks and a doctors surgery.

The old market town of Loule is 10km away.
There are a large number of restaurants within a 3km radius, varying from simple Portuguese restaurants to Michelin starred establishments and everything inbetween.
