Guestbook comments from the owner

Just wanted to say how much we enjoyed staying in your villa and will most certainly recommend your villa to anyone who is considering renting.

Our granddaughter (and her parents) loved the villa and the pool, it was good seeing her gaining confidence with water.

To be honest we enjoyed every moment of our holiday, even we are home now for almost a week and we still talk about it. We definitely treasure our holiday memories as it was nice for my husband and I watching our family enjoying themselves also the villa did help because it is so comfortable and family friendly.

Thank you once again for allowing us to stay in your villa.

Great time at Casa Lilly

  • 5 of 5

My husband, my 90 year old mother and I were so fortunate to be able to spend ten weeks of the winter months at Casa Lilly. When we arrived we were pleased with the short 20 minute drive from Faro Airport. The house is located in Varandas do Lago a well kept, quiet residential area with the front of the house overlooking woodland and the rear enclosed with covered and uncovered patio areas, a barbeque and swimming pool all surrounded by well kept shrubbery and very private.

The house had a perfect layout for us especially as there is a bedroom and bathroom downstairs for my mother. It was very well furnished and fully fitted which is what we needed for our long term stay.

The service we received from the Jones family one of whom lives nearby during our stay was outstanding. They were always at the end of the phone to answer all our questions promptly and professionally.

The weather was far better than we expected for the whole time we were there and we spent many days on either the back or front patios. Casa Lilly is located only a 5 minute drive from the beautiful beaches, we went for walks along the beach usually finishing off in one of the beachside restaurants for coffee, lunch or our favourite cocktails while watching the stunning sunsets.

We really felt home from home during our time at Casa Lilly and found our way around very easily. One of the things I loved after driving in the UK was how quiet the the roads were and how easy it was to get from the house to our destination and once arrived there was always a lot of free parking. There is some great shopping, supermarkets, coffee shops and restaurants in the nearby town of Almancil, Quinta da Lago and Vale de Lobo. We went to many restaurants while we were there but our favourites were definitely, Green Valley, Mr Freddies, Maria's on the Beach and Vinho and Tapas. We really, really enjoyed our stay and are hoping to repeat the experience again

this winter.

Fabulous area

  • 5 of 5

We (grandparents, daughter, son-in-law and granddaughter) have had a great time staying in Casa Lilly. Everything was in top notch, we felt so relaxed with our 2 year old granddaughter who was able to play around safely without worrying about the pool. The panels were easy to remove when you want to access the pool and be able to watch the family have fun. At the end of the holiday our granddaughter was confident with the water. Jo was helpful with advice and tips, we felt we were able to ask questions about where to eat, what to do, and any other relevant matters promptly. On the map the villa looks a bit out of way but it is deceptive as places were easy to get to, Quinta Shopping area is only few minutes drive away, Vale do Lobo is only 5 to 7 minutes, Almancil is about 5 minutes, and Villamoura 15 minutes. What was great for us was the drive from Faro Airport to the villa which took only 20 to 25 minutes especially not having to drive so far on arrival with the little one. You can also drive to Faro Forum (shopping mall) which is only 20 minutes away and is very near the airport (good for departure day). Everything is easy to get to and we were able to explore local restaurants and thoroughly enjoyed every meal out we had. We would definitely return and will recommend this villa to our friends and family. Thanks Jo and Steve for making this a holiday we will remember for a long time to come!

Fantastic holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic two week holiday here at Casa Lilly in the summer. We were a family of 4 including two boys aged 5 & 6 staying for the full two weeks, with grandparents joining us for the second week. The villa was immaculate when we arrived with everything in working order. The housekeeper/cleaner returned mid holiday to clean & change bed linen and towels. The outside space was brilliant & safe. Our boys spent most of their holiday in the swimming pool which was cleaned several times during our stay. The boys arrived just about able swim without armbands & were cautious about the deep end, but by the end of our holiday they were like dolphins! The adults were able to relax in the sun (or the shade) or be in the kitchen or lounge, whilst keeping an eye on the children. Not something we felt we could have done in a hotel/villa complex. We ate breakfast outside on the terrace each morning, and enjoyed several BBQ's in the evening, the sun shining in the garden until late in the day. Having visited the area before we knew about many of the fantastic restaurants & attractions nearby, but we made use of the information Joanne & Steve had left and explored some more. Our favourite attractions include the beach at Quinta & Julia's beach bar, Zoomarine theme park, days & evenings around the marina in Vilamoura, the boys loved the evening entertainment at the Praca in Vale do Lobo and the men enjoyed a couple of days golfing. We ate at many of the restaurants just a short drive away, including Green Valley, Sr Frango, Monty's, Casa do Quinta, Alambique & Simply Tapas & Vinho. There were far too many appealing things to do & places to eat - only option is to return, which we certainly will do. The service we received from Joanne was amazing. Communication was prompt, clear & very professional. We would definitely recommend Casa Lilly to friends & family.

Perfect place for our holidays

  • 5 of 5

We had 10 wonderful days at Casa Lilly. We were a party of 4 adults and 2 small kids and the property was simply perfect for our needs. To have our own private pool and the safety fences made our stay very relaxed. Joanne was very friendly thoughtout the booking process and provided us with enough good tips of what to do to keep us busy for many days. We liked the location of the house, but a car is a must if you intend to explore the area, and you do want to do that.

The only minus on our holidays was the extreme expensive prices for brollies and sun chairs on the beaches. EUR 20,00 per day for two sun chairs and 1 parasol is way out of reality. We can absolutely recommend Casa Lilly to other families or couples. We hope to be back next year!

Great Time - Yet Again

  • 5 of 5

We have rented this villa for about 5 or 6 holidays now and have yet to be let down.

The owners, Joanne and Steve, want you to have an enjoyable holiday and this is obvious by their attention to detail. The villa is suitable for all ages, but in particular young families with the addition of the safety barrier that can placed around the pool.

It certainly feels like it is your own home in the sun for the time spent there, and that is how Joanne and Steve want it to be. They are always open to suggestion and are more than happy to receive feedback on time spent at their villa.

I can't believe how fortunate we were at choosing this place the first time we went to the Algarve - what a find!

Loads of villages to visit from this base, great places to eat, beaches, golf and all sorts of things to do. Within a short distance of one of the best nature reserves in Europe.

I was very reluctant to visit the Algarve in the first place. It just never took my fancy - how wrong I was! This villa went a long way towards proving what a great holiday destination this is.

Fantastic Modern Villa

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from Casa Lily after a wonderful two week stay. The villa is of exceptional standard, the best that we have ever stayed in whilst in Portugal. The heated pool is a huge bonus especially as we have two young children aged 1 & 6 years. The villa is set in a lovely well kept residential area overlooking woodland with the rear of the villa enclosed and private. Communication with the owners was excellent, with local contact available should it be required. Our children had a wonderful time and settled in from day one. The villa is homely and child friendly, we cannot praise it highly enough.

We have already recommended the villa and area to family and friends and would love to have another holiday there again.

The area is quiet and a car would be beneficial.

Ideal for a relaxing holiday with the family or friends.
