Great spacious family Villa with pool
We have just spent our two week family holiday (two separate families) in Casa Emilia and had a fantastic time. The villa is extremely well equipped with everything you could possibly need! The house is a generous size and the outside space is fantastic with lots of space around the pool area. The children loved the pool and it was lovely and clean and well maintained. All the bedrooms have air-con which was essential for sleeping at night as it was so hot. Any problems we had were very quickly and efficiently dealt with by Les and Lynda, who were also very friendly and welcoming.
A car is essential, I would say, as there aren't any restaurants or shops within walking distance of the villa but we found supermarkets and restaurants within a short drive away. We did our food shopping at the local Lidl as this seemed to be the best stocked supermarket and also easy to park, with plenty of spaces. We would highly recommend this Villa if you are looking for a great place to spend a relaxing holiday!
A stunning villa with everything you could possibly need!
My family and I stayed in Casa Emilia from 14th July - 4th August 2018. The villa is stunning with a lovely feeling of home from home. It was very clean and tidy and felt nice and cool inside. I particularly loved the kitchen area with the most beautiful long marble topped table. The comfortable bedrooms and luxurious bathrooms made our stay even more pleasant. The villa is very spacious both inside and out. There were eight of us altogether and it never felt overcrowded. There are so many areas outside to eat, sit and relax in the shade or sunbathe around the beautiful pool. The upstairs area with its own sitting room, bedroom and bathroom was ideal for the older couple in our group who appreciated a little more privacy. We were all so impressed with the amazing library in the sitting room. If we had known there was such a great selection of books we wouldn't have bothered bringing our own. This area led out to a balcony which overlooked the pool with another very spacious outdoor area with table and chairs and a beautiful seating area with large comfy sofa chairs. Although there were other villas around us we didn't feel overlooked. Without doubt, this is the best equipped villa I have ever stayed in with everything you could possibly need and more. The beautiful sandy beaches are only a few kilometres away and there are so many little towns and villages close by. Cabanas and Fabrica with their lagoons were amazing places to see also. Monte Gordo is a livelier town with plenty of shops and restaurants and still only a ten minute drive away. Tavira, which is about a 25 minute drive away, is also worth a visit. I loved the castle in Castro Marim with its stunning panoramic views. No matter where we went the people were all really welcoming and friendly.
Les and Linda, the managers, live close by and were only a phone call away if needed. Les cleaned the pool every 3 days and collected the bed linen and left clean bedding once a week. Although there was no-one assigned to clean the villa over our three week stay, we found it easy to maintain ourselves.
My sincere thanks to the extremely warm and friendly owners Bonnie and Barry for all their helpful advice and for their wealth of information and recommendations which made our stay so much easier. We enjoyed eating at the wonderful restaurants recommended and Barry's hand-drawn map was a God send until we found our bearings. We had a wonderful holiday and hope to return in the near future.
Passámos uma semana na Casa Emília que nos proporcionou tempos extraordinários. É um espaço fantástico para férias em família de todas as idades. Muito completa ao nível de infraestruturas, com acessibilidade, conforto e diversão. As fotografias correspondem ao real mas vão muito para além do que é possível ver. Faz-nos sentir na nossa própria casa onde não nos falta nada.
A região é muito bonita, perto das melhores praias algarvias e de excelentes restaurantes.
Todo o apoio dado é indescritível. Desde as orientações dadas pela Bonnie e a disponibilidade dos Srs. que tomam conta da casa. Sentimo-nos como parte integrante de uma grande família.

We feel as if in our own home where you do not lack anything.
The region is very beautiful, close to the best Algarve beaches and excellent restaurants.
All the support given is indescribable. Since the guidelines given by Bonnie and availability of Les & Linda, who look after the house. We feel like part of a big family.
A Great find. Superb villa.
We had a fantastic time, the villa was perfect for the six of us and we agreed it was one of our best holidays ever. The information about the area sent by Bonnie and Barry in advance (as well as loads at the villa) was very accurate and so useful; it saved us lots of time. There's plenty to do in the area and being so close to the Spanish border added the extra opportunity to eat out in Spain on occasions. The villa itself was also perfect for us in both size and in all the facilities provided. We would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone else and would love to visit it again. We had we had a very restful, enjoyable and memorable stay there.

SUPERBE VILLA, VACANCES FABULEUSES
Nous avons passé 3 semaines extraordinaires dans cette superbe villa : le confort, les équipements intérieurs et extérieurs sont 100% conformes à la description qui en est faite dans l'annonce. Tout était parfait, rien ne manquait !
Nous avons été accueillis par Pat et Franck, tous 2 très sympatiques, disponibles, discrets et efficaces.
Le jardin à l'arrière de la maison est superbe de tranquilité, bien ombragé pour la sieste et les repas pris en extérieur ; ce fut un réel plaisir que de séjourner dans la Casa Emilia, nous y retournerons bien volontiers lors d'un prochain séjour dans l'Algarve.
Thank you Bonnie for letting us renting your wonderful villa ; it was a great pleasure for us to spend our 3 weeks holidays there. Thank you for your kindness and for all you done for us. And special thanks from Lucas for the pictures of his friend Ginger !!
The villa is 2km north of the coastal EN125 road at Praia Verde & 5 minutes from A22 motorway junction 17 near Spain. The beautiful, unspoilt beach of Praia Verde is close by, as are the beaches of Manta Rota, Altura and Monte Gordo, with its lively cafes, restaurants and casino. Close to lovely golf courses, scenic tourist drives and on the edge of a large nature reserve, with designated nature trails and bird watching facilities. The cosmopolitan town of Vila Real at the Spanish border on the Guadiana is a 10 minute drive and is home to the unique new sports, athletics & tennis stadium, marina, ferryboat to Spain, supermarkets and shops specialising in towels and linen. The towns of Altura & Castro Marim are 5 minutes away with supermarkets, bakers and daily indoor markets with fresh fish, meat, fruit & vegetables - a real treat. The lovely countryside view from the roof terrace, together with the distant sound of church bells chiming across the fields, almost guarantees relaxation
