The Incredible Dower House

  • 5 of 5

An extremely well furnished and decorated house with a highly professional and loving touch which must have taken some time in planning. We had a 14 number family group and loved every minute of it with no negative comments. Clean, well managed, welcoming, quiet street and excellent swimming pool. The owner happened to be on holiday in his next door property and took time off to give us a tour of his residence which was extremely educating and hugely historical significance. He also gave us information regarding local shops, eating places etc which proved invaluable.]

The cleaner and manager were magnificent and the local people friendly and welcoming in this quiet street free from the usual tourist bedlam. Although this was a town , the local drivers stopped their cars to allow you to cross the street, unheard of in the UK and Spain.

Looking forward to coming back and 10 out of 10 is a fair review.

Casa Da Viuva

What a find!

Spent a delightful week in this splendid home. Fully equipped and so

well presented, the contrast between the old house and beautiful decor

really worked.

Good beds, very clean and a really charming and efficient maid, who

handily lives next door.

I especially liked the heated swimming pool, and to see the birds

flitting around the peaceful garden.

Situated in Portimao, an historic port town, great variety of

inexpensive restaurents and the best and biggest ice creams I've ever

tasted.

Fabulous sandy beaches only 5 minutes away, the Dower House was an

ideal base to explore hidden villages and the ancient towns of Silves,

Alvor and Largos.

Planning to have my Mother's 75th Birthday gathering there in May.

Big enough for all the familles and something to satisfy all the age

groups.

I can't wait. Perfect.

wonderful villa in great location in algarve

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casa da Viuva in January. The house has been recently refurbished and it offers elegant, comfortable, well designed accommodation arranged around the large main reception room and the kitchen. The house is well stocked and the maid came twice during our stay and was friendly and efficient (she lives in the house next door). The owners were very helpful with written recommendations for local restaurants etc. and it was too cold to go to the beach but the pool was kept very warm. Town is a bit too quiet but the Praia da Rocha beach resort (reachable by can for 5 euros) has plenty of bars.

Wonderful house

  • 5 of 5

We were with a party of 10 people and we had a wonderful time at the Casa Da Viuva. The house is beautifully restored, furnished, decorated and very clean. Even though the weather was not very good, we could sit outside on the covered terrace. Everybody was happy with their private bedroom with ensuite bathroom and we were impressed with the service. Recommended!
