Jättehärligt hus med väldigt trevlig värd

  • 5 of 5
Vi (en familj med 2 barn i 12 resp 5 årsådern) tillbringade en vecka på höstlovet i detta härliga hus. Vi hade väldig tur med vädret som liknade svensk högsommar och badade varje dag i poolen (och havet). Vår värd Mikel var mycket omtänksam och lånade bla ut en GPS-navigator förprogrammerad med diverse sevärdheter, stränder, affärer mm i omgivningarna. Vi gjorde dagsutflykter åt flera olika håll, huset ligger väl till på Algarvekusten. Omgivningarna är väldigt lugna och avkopplande.
Huset kan absolut rekommenderas!

Definitely recommended

  • 5 of 5
This is a great villa to stay at especially because of the very helpful owner mickel. We were a group of 4 adults and a toddler, it's a good size house with everything you would expect and need, a lovely outside eating area, a well equipped kitchen, nice pool (smaller than the picture makes out but being October we didn't spend too much time swimming anyway but still great fun and plenty big enough really) prior to out stay mickel was very good and quick at answering emails, and he provided exceedingly good directions from the airport. He really made our week a lot easier with the satnav with a pre-prepared list of favourites. If you are thinking of staying in the area I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place. thanks mikel

Just perfect!

  • 5 of 5
Nous avons découvert cette maison lors d'un séjour l'été dernier, et nous avons tellement apprécié l'endroit, l'accueil de notre hôte, et la région que nous sommes revenus cette année! La maison est très agréable, parfaitement agencée (nous étions 5 adultes et 2 enfants), confortable, et c'est un très bon point de départ pour visiter la région. Une mention toute particulière à notre hôte pour son accueil et ses précieux conseils. Pour résumer, c'est une adresse que nous recommandons vivement!!!

A wonderful week!

  • 5 of 5
My wife, my 15 month old son and myself had a wonderful week at Casa Soalheira...the farmhouse was perfect, the garden and pool wonderful and the owner Mikel, couldn't have been more welcoming or helpful during and after our stay. We left a couple of things behind when we left and he most kindly posted them back to the UK to us...thanks again Mikel!

The location was perfect, with beaches and towns within easy reach with the local store/bar/cafe proving useful! However, if you are arriving in the evening as we did, make sure you have something to eat and drink as you will not be able to buy anything when you arrive!

All in all, a wonderful week...we wouldn't hesitate to recommend Casa Soalheira and we hope to visit again soon.

Rêveries d'automne en Algarve

Rêveries d'automne en Algarve
  • 5 of 5
Malgré des pluies torrentielles (5 jours sur 8), nous avons passé, grâce surtout à Casa Soaleira, des vacances agréables et paisibles. Le propriétaire nous avait mis à disposition du bois pour la cheminée, que nous avons allumée tous les soirs, dès que nous rentrions de nos "field trips". Nos 3 jeunes enfants étaient un peu déçus de ne pas pouvoir profiter de la belle piscine, mais ils ont bien joué dans le grand jardin et étaient contents d'avoir à disposition KiKa (chaîne télé pour enfants, via satellite). Les parents et la grand-mère aussi, car ça leur permettait de se ressourcer dans le salon accueillant devant la cheminée, avec un livre et un verre de bon vin portugais à la main.
Derrière les murs épais de Casa Soaleira, le vent et la pluie étaient vite oubliés!
Magnifique proriété très bien entretenue, dans un petit village, où le café du coin n'est heureusement pas encore envahi par les touristes ou les retraités expatriés.
Petit tuyau: n'oubliez pas les bottes en caoutchouc et les parapluies quand vous y allez en novembre.

Traumurlaub

  • 5 of 5
Die Villa Soalheira war in Wirklichkeit noch schöner als auf den Fotos der Homepage! Wir haben uns super wohlgefühlt in diesem zauberhaften Ambiente. Den halben Tag verbrachten wir am sehr gepflegten Pool und erkundeten in der restlichen Zeit die faszinierende Umgebung mit pittoresken Orten und Landschaften. Die Tipps und Empfehlungen von Mikel (Restaurants, Ausflüge etc...) waren sehr hilfreich, haben uns gut gefallen und waren mit dem Auto gut zu erreichen.
Wir genossen die warmen Sommerabende auf der gemütlichen Terrasse oder im nett eingerichteten Wohnraum.
Dieser zweiwöchige Traumurlaub ließ bei uns Vieren keine Wünsche offen.

The villa is located 4km from the hamlet of Bordeira, not far from the attractive village of St. Barbara de Nexe and midway between the busy town of Loulé, where a bustling farmer’s market takes place every Saturday morning, and São Brás, around 5km away, towns where you will find a good number of good restaurants.
