Casa Tranquila is a lovely villa which offers you a peaceful and incredibly relaxing holiday. The villa is completely private with outstanding country views and yet is just a 20 minute drive from Vale do Lobo, beaches, nightlife and of course, many golf courses. The villa has a great barbecue area and a beautiful outdoor dining setting, that is perfect for entertaining into the long warm nights. The villa also offers a colourful and fragrant walled garden for either a relax or for the kids to kick a football around. If you want to spend your evenings dining at home under the stars or at one of the great local restaurants, Casa Tranquila offers you the best of both worlds!

About Ian Jones
I live and work in Dubai with my wife who is a teacher and two very lively boys. We spend most of our summers in Portugal and that is where we fell in love with the place and made many friends.
Ian Jones purchased this Villa in 2006
Why Ian Jones chose Palhagueira
We purchased Casa Tranquila because of a number of reasons but most of all we enjoyed the quiet and remote setting. It is also a true family home that we see ourselves retiring too and enjoying the pool and views over the countryside.
Pool / Spa
peace and quiet in rural algarve
This property is all about being outside in the glorious weather.The gardens have abundant flowers,shrubs a lawn and trees which are all immaculately kept by gardeners.The pool is a must for keeping cool and the outside bar area and bbq is great for evening entertainment.Dining is in the shade by the pool and in fact we only ate inside once in three weeks.Maid service was very thorough and left the casa sparkling.The general area is very quiet,even the dogs seemed on good behaviour.Only 5 mins to Loule and 10 mins to Sao Bras for shopping,eating out etc this is a great location and hopefully we will be coming back for more relaxation.
Casa Tranquila is a home from home but with the added sunshine, where we spent a very relaxing 2 weeks.
The villa had all the comforts we required and the published photographs do not do it justice. We were left a very generous "welcome pack" which was very much appreciated, saving us a trip to the supermarket on our arrival. The pool was lovely together with the orange and lemon trees, the latter fruit complimenting our evening drinks.
We look forward to spending another holiday at Casa Tranquila.
We have been enjoying our holidays at Casa Tranquila for the past 5 years. It gives the best of both worlds, total peace in a lovely secluded villa and 5 to 20 minutes drive to all your other holiday pursuits.
It's a rustic country villa and has all the facilities you need.
Pick from the 3 bedrooms or annex, all with bathrooms, large living room over looking the pool, fully fitted kitchen.
Outdoors- great pool with easy steps, barbecue and bar area.
Garden to the side of the villa, lawned and full of fruit trees.
Favorite part of the villa, opening the bedroom doors straight out to the pool, lovely gardens, then seeing that Blue sky, quick dip then sit having breakfast drying off, you can't beat it.
There's plenty of outdoor shade if you need it, which was missing from some other villas we had visited, and no barking dogs.
A car is a must.
Excellant restaurant, Le marquis in the village and only 5 mins drive from various other eating places in Santa Barbara and Loule.
