  • Lovely villa

    "We have just got back after a wonderful week away at Casa Joan. The villa was lovely- exactly as it looks in the pictures- well-equipped, clean, comfortable and perfect size for our family of four. Our 7 year old and 4 year old loved the pool, as did we, it's a great size and a real asset- we are missing our daily swimming very much! The maids came in mid-week, changed the bed linen and towels, cleaned and tidied everywhere and even did our washing up (not in their remit- but it was very welcome!). It's a great area to visit with lots to do for families. We had a couple of day trips- we went to Zoomarine, which was fab- the dolphins are incredible. We also sailed on a pirate ship from Portimao, which included transferring into little motor boats to go inside some of the caves around the coastline (some of which can only be accessed by sea), which was a brilliant trip- especially for our pirate-obsessed 4 year old. The sand sculptures near the villa (Fiesa) are very impressive, but there is little shade so it's best to avoid the middle of the day. We also visited Silves- the castle ruins and the cathedral- but again there was little shade and we were very grateful for the little cafe at the top of the hill that served us copious amounts of ice cream and cold drinks! Otherwise we spent our time lounging around at the villa, in and out of the pool- heaven! This was our first visit to Portugal- first flight for the kids- and we would definitely love to go back. Would highly recommend!"

  • Fantastic stay in a gorgeous house.

    "We had a lovely family holiday in this wonderful house. Everything we needed to make our stay perfect and relaxing was supplied by the owners. My children especially loved the fishing nets! Lucie is lovely and gave us plenty of information about the gorgeous island. Thank you so much for letting us use your gorgeous home. Louise & Andy Boyle"

  • Wow!!

    "Beautiful villa in a quiet area. We are a group of 8 ladies who went to Vale do Lobo to play tennis and relax.. The relaxation was made very easy as the villa has everything you could wish for. It's very clean and well maintained and looks in real life just like it does in the pictures! We loved the massive games room where we had several roommates challenges after dinner at table tennis, pool and table football!! The layout of the bedrooms was fine for us as the beds could all be separated, apart from the master, which was big enough to lose yourself in!! The walk to the tennis centre was about 20 minutes and we classed that as our warm-up! There are several restaurants on the Praca, which is within easy walking distance. We also visited Julia's, which was wonderful - food was amazing and service very good - and Maria's, which has a very good reputation, but we think it needs to work on its service. The maid service was appreciated - they visited 3 times during our short stay - with ladies who were lovely and couldn't do enough for you. We also had to call the property managers for a very minor problem (one of the plugs got stuck in the sink) and they came out immediately to sort it out. We are looking forward to being able to stay at this beautiful villa again next year."

  • Excellent

    "We stayed in Casa Nostra for 11 nights in September. The apartment is very spacious and well equipped with everything that you need. It is a little out of Luz but very close to a restaurant and cafe which were both lovely. It has lovely grounds and a nice size pool which was very quiet. It's a lovely walk into Luz as it's mostly down hill and we did walk home a few times but a taxi is only 6 euro's. The owner was excellent and answered my emails very quickly. I would thoroughly recommend this property and it's quiet location. Again many thanks."
