About Jane Whittell
We are a family from Yorkshire with 3 daughters, aged 23, 11 and 8. We have been holidaying in the Algarve for many years and have family who live there. The climate is fantastic and the locals friendly and welcoming.
Jane Whittell purchased this Villa in 2011
Why Jane Whittell chose Vilamoura
Having stayed in the villa a number of times, when it came up for sale we couldn't resist. It has everything we need - private and peaceful, yet close enought to the beach, restaurants, shops and bars to keep everyone happy, including teenagers! .
What makes this Villa unique
We have tried to make the villa a home from home to make our own, and our guests holidays as enjoyable as possible. Games, jigsaws, books and DVD's are all there should you require them, as are buckets and spades for the beach. The kitchen includes everything you may require for cooking and entertaining. The bedrooms have hairdryers and fans for comfort, and beach/pool towels are included. We have put together a comprehensive information book to help newcomers to the area, and included mid-week maid service, pool man 1 x weekly and gardener 1 x weekly so you can put your feet up and relax.

Great villa in a great location
We have just come back from a great 2 week family holiday in the villa, would definitely recommend. Thank you!
We had a fantastic week at Casa Casal Feliz, Vila Sol. Plenty of room for us all with en suites in every room. This Villa is well equipped for travelling with children. Lots of space outdoors including outside bar area for eating and drinking. Also plenty of shaded areas which was perfect for pram. Swimming pool is excellent. Lovely gardens surrounding well maintained. There are a couple of bars and restaurants within walking distance, one of which includes a play park. Property really close to water park also. Villamoura around €10 in a taxi and Quarteira €5. Only 5/10 mins away. Would highly recommend this villa, especially to families as it had everything we needed and Jane and Phil were very helpful ensuring we had a great holiday.
Thanks for your lovely review Kirsty, and I'm so pleased you had a fab holiday. Look forward to welcoming you back sometime. Jane
Fantastic Luxury Family Villa
We stayed in this lovely family villa in May half term 2017.
Due to a change in circumstances their was only me and 3 children.
So we were spoilt for space/bedrooms/bathrooms.
It was just a home from home, if you needed it, it was their.
I could bang on about how wonderful our holiday and the villa was for days but the proof is that myself and my mum and dad and now my sister are all looking at booking for next year.
Adult enjoyment, quite surroundings, small walks, golf, bistro's, spa, sports bar, café, tapas and restaurant.
Kids enjoyment, their own pool, table tennis, floats, goals, basketball net, x box, safe to walk round complex, sports bar with outdoor play area and a water park less than 5mins down the road.
Big thank you to Jane and her family for sharing their beautiful villa.
Glad you had a great time, thanks for the lovely review, and look forward to having you back. Jane
Much better than staying in a hotel
We travelled as a party of 7 adults, three couples and a single lady so the accommodation layout was perfect for us. Very favourable first impressions of this villa ....the reality is much better than the pictures. All the rooms are well sized and its a bonus having all bedrooms en-suite...there is a wow factor about this villa, especially for the master bedroom and ensuite with its private terrace. Plenty of space inside - but best of all is the private garden - plenty of sunny or shaded terrace areas outside which we made the most use of. The pool is huge with a good deep end and great for swimming lengths or playing ball. The outside bar area with fridges that we kept well stocked is a bonus...the men loved playing barman mixing up the drinks there!. The inside kitchen is well catered with a massive fridge freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and good sized oven and hob...although the only cooking we did was bacon sandwiches on a couple of mornings and prawns for lunch one day. There are three superb restaurants within walking distance of the villa and each other - Wildfire is new and serves fabulous steak, Oscars is a lively bar with a good menu and live music and quiz nights, and there's also a small Tapas place near the bakery which has a lovely restaurant serving great meat and fish dishes attached to it. Very friendly owner ensured all questions were answered ahead of our stay and access on arrival was straightforward. Thoroughly recommended by us all!
So glad you had a fabulous holiday, thanks for the lovely review.
Wonderful Villa, great location
This is a lovely villa ideally situated for a family or group holiday. Bars, restaurants, shops and more are within walking distance.
The place is immaculate and very comfortable, and the patio area has different areas for relaxing, sunbathing or chilling in the shade. An outdoor bar with a fridge is an added benefit.
Everything was faultless, a real dream stay.
