About Alan Ball
I live in Whitchurch Shropshire with my wife and we both work at our family business Victoriagarage.com,but spend most of our holidays in the algarve where we have many friends and fallen in love with the country.
Alan Ball purchased this House in 2006
Why Alan Ball chose Apra
We love the loule area so much because it is within reach of all the action of the coastal resorts but retains the local way of life.The beaches are only 20 minutes by car and many wonderful golf courses are within easy reach.The property is very private and sits on a hill overlooking the valley below with the sea visable in the distance.
What makes this House unique
The property,although only a few minutes from loule centre and supermarket is at the end of a small road on a hill overlooking beautiful countyside. Its main asset is that is is so private that you are not overlooked and very few vehicles pass each day. This allows total relaxation and rest if required without being disturbed. The salt-water swimming pool can be heated if required but in summer months the pool cover generally keeps the pool up to 30c if covered at night. If a little night life is required,Vilamoura is only 20 minutes by car or a short taxi ride.

Relaxing, peaceful villa and pool
We’re just back from a superb 10-day stay here, and we had a fantastic time. We needed a restful time after a hectic year, and we certainly got what we needed from this villa and it’s great pool. My wife and I had the upstairs bedroom, and she - a poor sleeper - slept better here than she has for years.
You do need a car here - it’s location is what gives the peace and quiet. We used Drive4Fun, after researching recommendations on the web, and the pickup and drop-off at Faro airport was really easy. With a car, you’re only a few minutes from the Continente supermarket and the town of Loule, an interesting town in itself. The market on Saturday is well worth a visit. And with a car you’re only 20-30 minutes or so to the beach and the coastal towns. We recommend a visit to Tavira in the eastern Algarve, and there’s a great grill restaurant there too called O Simao - the langoustine starters are superb and the grilled lamb chops are to die for.
The villa owner, Alan, is really friendly and helpful (as is Fatima the local agent) and has great suggestions for beaches and restaurants - we’ll worth contacting him before travelling, we’re glad we did. He put us on to the restaurant where we had the best meal - Gamboa in Almancil, with a family atmosphere where the owner is really enthusiastic about the food, which is simply but beautifully prepared and is mouth-wateringly good. Sea bass and golden bream were the catch of the day, and both were fresh and gorgeous.
We had sun, warmth, great food and fun for the family of all ages (three generations for us). A fantastic time and we thoroughly recommend it.
Fantastic well equipped villa
Second stay for us and just as good as the previous time. Beautiful location, villa is very homely and relaxing and pool area is a great size for two families. BBQ and kitchen equipment a plenty and bedrooms and air con really comfortable. 10 minute drive into Loule to large Continente supermarket and restaurants. We visited Vilamoura and the marina about 20/25 minutes drive, same distance to the airport. Lots of good runs and walks from the villa should you wish to venture out on foot - (the mast on the hill in the distance is only 3 miles away with amazing 360 views of the area from the viewing platform) All in all a wonderful place to stay that won't disappoint.
Another perfect holiday
This was our second stay at Casa Up Beyond and as before, it did not let us down.
Perfect villa for a peaceful family holiday

A really well equipped and spacious property!
Ideal for our party of 7.
The facilities were superb, e.g. pool, Wi-Fi, BBQ, various outside seating areas. The owner was also very helpful and easy to deal with. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and would definitely consider returning.
Thank you Alan!
Excellent property, peaceful location.
This is a beautiful villa in a lovely peaceful location. The villa has everything you need, the pool is great. The children loved swimming in the evening when the pool was lit up. The villa is spotless and has everything you need. The beds are comfortable, air conditioning is great. Wi fi works well. The grounds around the villa are also great.
The restaurants and beach are only a 15 minutes drive away. Alan the owner could not have been anymore helpful. Deposit was returned within a few days of our return. A really great holiday villa!
Wonderful villa for families
Villa was everything that was promised, whole family loved it - it was better in real life than the pictures. We had everything we needed. Children loved the swimming pool - internet was efficient.
