VILLA WITH BREATHTAKING VIEWS OVER THE SEA AND FARO'S VALLEY

Bordeira Villa Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms; 2 bathrooms; accommodates 7

Villa located in the mountains north of Faro. 15 minutes driving from the airport. Close to local towns like Loule, S. Bras Alportel and Faro. 10x5 Swimming-pool. 2.800sq m plot, fully fenced; Satellite TV and DVD (guests will be invited to choose a reasonable number of DVD titles from the owner's personal collection - +700 to choose); Two water boilers; Kitchen fully equipped, including American Fridge with ice-maker; barbecue. Garage for 2 cars and automatic gate at property entrance. Quiet area. DSL Internet with wireless connection available. Lovely Conservatory. Guests will be personally welcomed at the airport by the owner(s) and guided to the property.

The project villa Casa do Sonho didn't start life : It was our home until we decided it was a little too far for our normal active working lives. We moved to Vilamoura and decided that we would rent out the Casa do Sonho villa to help us with our new property expenses. So, what does this mean to you? Simply put, it means that you will find a real home here, instead of a poorly furnished villa designed for maximum profit.. We look forward to welcoming you and enabling the Casa do Sonho to become your home for a well-deserved, comfortable and memorable vacation.

But to be honest, I think our guests opinion must be taken. We kindly suggest you to read our testimonials in our own website.

House is great, it has pretty much everything we need!And we are quite demanding as we have two young children We felt like we have gone from one home to another.Hence we like it so much.Russel Withlock/Just a short note to say thank you for the use of your fantastic house, without doubt the best accomodation we've ever stayed in on holiday. As well as the house itself, we loved the quiteness of the area and the view from the pool area was something we were still enjoying the day we left!Neal Ford/ We have stayed in some villas from the same website,but this one and in particular the owners,surpassed our expectations.From the moment we arrived in Portugal, meeting the villa owner at the airport,being taken on a wonderful journey through the hills to the villa and viewing the villa and the facilities,set the scene for what was to become a most memorable week.We will not forget the owners of our villa and our relaxing evenings sat beside the pool watching the sunset.Caroline and Phil

Exceeded Expectations

Having used HomeAway before, I was hoping to find somewhere good as before - especially important as friends traveling with us and sharing the cost. After a few hours research decided upon this villa near Faro. From the beginning communications with Laura were excellent and we agreed dates and confirmed costs. Payment was straightforward and fair with no nasty surprises. We were also provided with extensive information on the area prior to traveling.

We were met by Ricardo at the airport, and followed him for the short journey (less than 30 minutes) to the villa. We were then shown around and the property was exactly as described - homely, welcoming, unlike some properties which can feel quite cold and clinical. There were some snacks, beer and wine waiting for us too.

You must have a car - beware the local hire companies as they charge for a full tank of fuel on arrival and you return empty - no refund on unused - so make the most of the tankful and explore, as there is beautiful countryside away from the coast. Laura and Ricardo will certainly give you plenty of ideas (suggest you try geocaching too - great fun).

For a modest charge Ricardo prepared a traditional meal for us in the villa - very tasty, especially if you enjoy shellfish. Local restaurant also excellent and not at all expensive.

Our party was four adults and one child, and the villa was perfectly sized. The pool was nice to cool off in, and the views in the evening especially stunning. A walk up the hillside behind the property is pleasant in the evening too.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property as it met all our requirements and we had a lovely break (too short though). When we return to the Algarve we won't be looking for alternatives.

Our Honeymoon in Santa Barbara de Nexe

Together with my new wedded wife we've stayed in this amazing villa!

The owner Ricardo picked us up from the airport because of our late arrival in Faro, when we arrived at the Villa we were welcomed with good wine and nice finger food.
The fridge was filled with the basic needs for the next morning, a warm and nice welcome!

We've really enjoyed our stay in this villa and amazing area, Ricardo and Laura have been VERY helpfull and friendly during our short stay which made our stay even more plesant.

I would absolutely advise other guests to stay in this great Villa.

Magnifisant stay

We - 6 adults - had a lovely stay for a short holiday i september. The house and especialy the view is even more lovely than the pictures. The house is clean and well maintained and there was plenty of room for all of us.

The owner took well care of us and it was wonderfull to find eggs, milk, cakes and fruit at the arrival. Particulas as we arrived late at night.

All in all we recomend the house warmly, both for a family stay as for a short "get away" holiday for adults.

You must have a car for a stay in this house.

Located in a hill with only a few neighbour villas, this house offers the joy of a quiet area. Although, its easy access is one of its best values: driving from here to Faro, Almancil or Loule is only 15 m away. And Vilamoura, Quinta do Lago and Vale do Lobo are also easily reachable.

There are a few recommendable local restaurants (less then 5 mim driving) and the closest village, Bordeira, is only 2 km distant. There you will be able to buy basic groceries, meat, bread, etc. If needed, a short drive of 4 km will conduct you to S. Bras de Alportel, a small town where will be able to find a proper supermarket.

Beaches will be at your reach; only problem will be to choose one.
