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.

About Laura

Ricardo is 40 something, and Laura is 30 something. Both Portuguese. He was born and grew up in Lisbon, but Laura is a true Algarvian. They love to host people. Show around, explain things, satisfy the healthy curiosity of the guests.

Laura purchased this villa in 2002

Why Laura chose Bordeira

One day we woke up and decided too many people were building around us and the area was becoming too crowded. So we decided to sell our previous villa. It was official: we were looking for a new home. And when the phone rang and a real estate agent said she had exactly what we were looking for, we accepted to visit still another property. That was the day when we came to Casa do Sonho for the first time. Its location was a bit out of the way for us. But the views were so good... and the building quality... and the fine swimming-pool... we just couldn't resist. We bought the place. We had happy years there. The community is great, and especially during the Summer, when everybody comes to their villas, the atmosphere is unbelievable.

What makes this villa unique

The project villa Casa do Sonho didn't start life as a commercial enterprise. We didn’t build this villa with the intention of renting it out. 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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just wanted to let you know that we really enjoyed staying in the villa...it was nice and secluded with plenty of space and a lovely view. The beds were really comfortable and the showers were good.I would recommend the villa to other people as it is very spacious, has a good quiet location and has everything you need.

Comments from Owner Guestbook

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

Beautiful, quiet and relaxing

  • 5 of 5
This is a beautifully kept, well presented villa with the most breath taking views. Laura was extremely welcoming and full of advice on areas to visit and things to do during our stay. The weather was fantastic, the ambiance delightful and we will definately be returning some day soon. Would thoroughly reccommend for either couples or families.

Exceeded Expectations

  • 5 of 5
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

  • 5 of 5
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.

Car: recommended

Located in a hill with only a few neighbor 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 15m 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, 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.
