The property is managed by English speaking Isabel and Daniel at VIP based in nearby village of Santa Barbara de Nexe. They will provide guests with keys and look after any needs if and when they arise. A damage deposit is required upon arrival of €500 (only cash accepted) which is returned in full upon departure unless there are any damages.
Twice weekly maid service is included in the rent price. Towels and bedding are included. Water usage is most expensive resource in this part of Portugal and it means that we must charge a surcharge for parties of over 10 people, of £50 per extra person per week. Air-conditioning must be used economically and always turned off when not in use. Main house at Casa Danielle is secured with an alarm system and guests are expected to switch on alarm every time they leave. A pool man and a gardener come to the property once a week.
There are plenty of good restaurants within 20 to 30 minutes or less by car as well as supermarkets in Sta Barbara de Nexe, Pingo Doce in St Bras and Faro and Almancil. Each small village has its own corner shops often stocked with locally cultivated veg and fruits and there are great weekend markets in Olhao and Loule full of colour and fun. The property is found in an area that is great for retreats and those who like alternative therapies and lifestyle, such as yoga, meditation, shamanism etc such as Quinta do Calma near Almancil. Those holidaying with kids will find lots of kid filled enterntainment heading towards Albufeira. We particularly recommend The Dolphin World. Brilliant. There are also loads of waterslide parks and other such recreational activities around.
