About Leonor Guerreiro
Hi my name is Leo short for Leonor. I have been living in the Algarve with my husband and three children since 1995. I work for a a tour operator in the U.K. and my husband also works in tourism for a transfer company. Our children are all grown up and most of the time out of the house. The reason we decided to rent this house and move into a smaller one we own.
Leonor Guerreiro purchased this Villa in 2000
Why Leonor Guerreiro chose Santa Eulália
The reason we bought this house was for it`s excellent location. Walking distance from everything. It is very peaceful and quiet area in the country side yet walking distance from the STRIP (bars and restaurants).
What makes this Villa unique
This villa has a super excellent location. Very peaceful to relax in the sunny terrace and pool area. Great Ping Pong table to keep young and older happy. Very little traffic because it is a dead end street yet literally near everything. Excellent for families with teenagers that want to go out at night to a bar because of it´s proximity. It is a very safe and peaceful area.

A truly beautiful villa!
This is the second time we have visited this villa and we fell even more in love with it this time. The villa is a real home with everything you could ever need. We stayed for four weeks and never wanted for anything, it was like being at home! Leo is simply a lovely host, warm and helpful. She took us shopping to the big supermarket, every week which was above and beyond and really helped us have a great holiday as we had 5 children with us under 6.
We had an issue with the pool filter while there and Leo made sure it was sorted rapidly without fuss. The property is in a great location close by to the beach(15 mins) , mini supermarket (5 mins) and local shops, bars and restaurants. Try a bacon and egg bap from gypsys at the end of the road, 3 euros and a taste of home, her chips were out of this world too!
The villa was spotless and the lovely cleaning lady visited each week!
It was such a lovely holiday we are just gutted we won’t be back next year but the year after hopefully we will!! We could just do with one extra room for our growing children! Thanks Leo for everything
Ideal holiday home. Wonderfully hospitable host.
What a wonderful holiday we had at Casa Sabrina! The accommodation was excellent and the overall service provided by Leo and her lovely cleaning lady was second to none.
Firstly, the accommodation. The reviews are absolutely right when they say that the photos don't do it justice. The house is bright and airy and SPOTLESSLY CLEAN! I'm a bit of a clean freak but it surpassed even my expectations. We were very pleasantly surprised to find that the cleaning lady visited us twice during our stay to change towels and bed-linen, which is very unusual in a private rental like this. She even did a full clean on both occasions: windows, bathrooms, kitchen - the lot!
The pool area was perfect and with the addition of the shaded porch, table tennis and darts board, there was plenty to occupy all of us. The children made plenty of use of the massive Smart TV in the very comfortable living room watching DVDs or Netflix, or making use of the Wifi, which was unexpectedly speedy.
The whole place was fully equipped - from serving platters, glasses for all occasions, cake baking equipment, paella dishes and not one but two different types of coffee machines; I defy anyone to need any kind of appliance or kitchen utensil that wasn't available.
As a host, Leonor was an absolute angel! She took us to the supermarket on arrival - even helping us navigate the checkout and packing our bags for us, and she recommended a wonderful taxi driver in Lourdes who took us wherever we wanted to go for the duration of our stay for very reasonable rates.
The location is also excellent. 10 Euros in Lourdes' van into the old town (you could probably walk in about half an hour but we didn't bother to try it) and a five minute walk from the strip. The next road to the house is quite busy and we ate at several restaurants which proved to be excellent. The café bar at the end of the road, Paulo's, Eduardo's - all excellent, and the boys made use of the sports bar (Bar33) for football watching with the kids. The beach was a good 15 minute walk but the bars and restaurants were excellent. There are a couple of local beaches to choose from but the one at the bottom of the strip was by far the nicest and we made several visits there.
Overall, a wonderful holiday with an exceptional host and a beautifully authentic Portuguese house. Thank you Leo - we had a blast!
Thanks Claire that is what it is all about. Do your very best to make sure your guests have a blast ! Thanks, it was a pleasure meeting you all. Take care and God Bless.
A home away from home
A beautiful homely villa with everything you would need to make your stay comfortable.
The villa is very well maintained and comfortable, everything we needed for 5 adults and under 5's (including babies)
The pool was chilly but absolutely fabulous for the children with a shallow end for the littlest.
Leonora is a wonderful host and took us shopping weekly during our 4 week stay. This was so kind and made our lives so much easier as we ate at the villa so had to do "big shops"
The location is excellent a short walk to the mini preco (3-5 mins) and about 10 mins to the bigger inter marche! There are restaurants/bars and cafes all within 5 mins and the strip is about 10 mins away. It's in a very quiet spot despite its close proximity to everything you need.
The beach is a bit of a longer walk (15mins) and is uphill on the way back but worth visiting.
A truly fantastic find and we will hopefully be returning year after year! Thank you Leo for helping us to have such an amazing (and relaxing - despite all the young children) holiday
Thanks Jayne for the kind words . It was a pleasure to drive you. See you next year.
Amazing villa, perfect location!!!!
Just arrived home from a fantastic stay in casa sabrina. Just beautiful..photos don't do the place justice. The villa was equipt with everything you could possibly need. Leonor was so helpful from meeting us on arrival to waving us off. The location was spot on, minutes from lovely bars, restaurants and the popular strip. The pool was spotless and the gardens so well maintained. Can't wait to return, would highly recommend to anyone thinking about booking. 5 stars!!!!
Thank you so much for the lovely review. I am so happy that you enjoyed your holiday at villa Sabrina. My objective is just that! The service I supply is also for you to feel welcome and secure. This way you know I am around to help in what ever situation, You are not on your own at Villa Sabrina. I am here to assist with pleasure and gratitude. Kind Regards to all love Leo
What a great holiday we had! Me and my friend stayed for 8 nights at Casa Sabrina. When we arrived, we got a warm welcome with a few drinks and the owner showed us the house. The villa has got a perfect location, only a few minutes walking to the nearest shops and the strip. Me and my friend often went to the beach, which you have to visit if you go to the Algarve. The villa was large, comfortable (BIG BIG BIG TV) and despite the nice old fashioned look, modern. For our 'chefcook' it was a heaven; large oven, large stove, large fridge and a large BBQ. The swimmingpool is enormous, but a bit cold. The owner, Leonor, is such a nice person with a big heart!
I highly recommend this villa to everyone.
Leonor, thank you very much for our lovely stay!
(When i'm married and got children, we will come here again!!)
Pieter and friends
Thanks Peter for your kind words . Do not forget what you said. Once you have your own family I will be here waiting for you and your family. Kind Regards, to you and all.
This villa is very well appointed and in a good location. The owner is lovely and does all she can to help. We had a wonderful stay and I would definitely stay again. Slight downside - pool should have been cleaned better, but there you go, it didn't spoil the holiday. Suggested improvements - new mattress for ground floor bedroom, the current one is very uncomfortable and finally a true bonus would be to have the option of pool heating.
All in all we did have a great time, Leo was wonderful and I would most certainly stay there again. We were very sad to leave. Thanks Leo
