About Julia PYE
Julia PYE purchased this Villa in 2014
Why Julia PYE chose Charneca
We bought the villa as a family home with the view of settling down here during the quieter winer months.The quiet hilly surroundings offer cooling summer breezes whilst offering glorious views of the coast and surrounding countryside.
What makes this Villa unique
Having Faro airport within 15 minutes drive is a huge advantage when we have family visiting. We are enchanted with Loulé and its open market. We love the local restaurants in Santa Barbara de Nexe. So much to do and explore for all the family.

Wonderful villa which we would recommend to anyone.
The villa is outstanding with amenities to suit our party of 6 adults and 2 children of 3 generations.
Really lovely Villa
We were looking for a villa that was inland, quiet, heated pool and lots of space for the kids. This villa didn't disappoint. The villa was huge, the pool/terrace area was lovely and we also enjoyed the roof terrace with the beautiful views. Villa had everything we required for our self catering holiday and was set up well for our baby. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Thank you
A perfect holiday
My wife and 2 children could not have had a better holiday. The villa is absolutely perfect both indoors and outdoors. It is only 20 minutes to Faro airport, 20 minutes to the beaches near Quinta Do Lago and Vale Do Lobo, and the local supermarket has everything you need. there are also some super restaurants very nearby, most notably Le Marquis (http://www.restaurant-le-marquis.com). The views are amazing, particularly from the incredible roof terrace (ideal for evening drinks), and the outdoor furniture is plentiful and luxurious. The owners also made sure that they were contactable if anything went wrong, not that anything did go wrong. All in all we couldn't have had a better two weeks and look forward to returning. Huge thanks to the owners for helping myself and my family have a wonderful holiday.
Wonderful villa for our family holiday of 3 generations
We've just returned from a fabulous week's stay at Lucy and Julia's gorgeous villa - clean, spacious, comfortable and with every amenity supplied. We especially enjoyed the wonderful seating area outside, with comfy seats and couches in the shade, and study wooden sunbeds for those who love to brave the heat! The rooftop area was beautiful for evening drinks watching the sun go down, and the large pool was a hit with us all.
Inside the villa, the sitting room and its 3 very comfy sofas were perfect for relaxing, and the TV and games system looked great, although we never really got around to using them much. Ceiling fans and air conditioning kept us cool. The kitchen was well equipped, and the second fridge freezer in the laundry room was perfect for storing drinks.
Gina, our contact in Portugal, was very helpful, meeting us at the villa and showing us everything the villa had to offer, but also later in the week when we had some questions. We also had a worry about the pool around 9pm one night, and she organised the pool maintenance man to come round within about 10 minutes, despite the lateness of the hour.
All in all a fabulous holiday; we were very sad to leave...
Excellent - tranquil setting and beautiful vistas
This villa is perfect if you are looking for beautiful scenery, quiet surroundings and a private getaway.
Although it is only a 10 minute drive to Faro, the villa feels like it is hidden away in the countryside. Surrounded by vast landscape and mountains you have complete still and quiet as you play in the pool, explore the huge garden or just chill under the pergola.
Facilities were excellent - the pool was heated (an extra £150 but worth it for the evening dip under the clearest, starry sky). There is also a huge TV inside for late night movies and a PS3 with around 25 games to choose from.
The kitchen has everything you'd need (2 fridges - one for drinks one for food) and each of the four bedrooms are all huge.
Would definitely stay again and will look into booking up for next year!
