Guestbook comments from the manager

Our party of eight had a brilliant week in this large detached villa. The location is absolutely perfect, only a quick 20 minute drive from Faro airport, especially important if travelling with small children after a flight from the UK. In its own extensive gardens with private swimming pool, it has wonderful views across the valley to Loule and beyond, as far as the Algarve coast. Loule itself is a quick 5 minute drive or 30 minute walk away, the nearest hypermarket is visible from the villa on the outskirts, which you pass on the way from the airport. The villa itself was exactly as described - four large well equipped bedrooms, a huge lounge where seven adults and one very active toddler could relax with Sky and all UK TV channels, large kitchen with everything you need to self cater, and a great outside area with swimming pool and BBQ area, with enough seating to relax around the pool, read a book or have a sit down meal together. The only slight downside was that occasionally there was insufficient hot water for seven adults, but this did not in any way detract from the overall high quality that the villa provided.

The main resorts on the coast are a quick 20-25 minute drive away where the beaches go on for miles and other touristy facilities are widely available.

We all agreed that the villa was everything we had hoped for, and allowed us to chill out in a peaceful environment away from the crowds nearer to the coast.

Contact from Anita and her local management team was always very professional with directions and other local information, and made the booking very straightforward.

All in all a great villa, a great holiday and we would happily recommend Casa Vimalio to anyone.

Wonderfully seculded with great views .

  • 4 of 5

Family group of 4 adults and two children under 8 years old. Historically we used to stay in Vilamoura however we wanted a change of view and this Villa was really great. The pool was lovely and warm and the outside space is perfect for eating out. We ate outside for 14 days ! The villa was spotlessly clean and the staff are amazing. We will go back again in 2016 (if we can afford it !) and the only very small grumble I'd have is that the Sky TV (or any UK channels) did not work so we had to read our books ! On a Villa of this scale that should not happen. Otherwise we loved it and who recommend to anyone who like peace and tranquility. You need a Car !

Great return visit

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic villa for all ages. Lovely views, beautiful garden, warm swimming pool, wonderful area for outdoor eating and barbequing. Extra touches make it a very special villa: up to date coffee machine; playground area in the lower garden for young children; games room and soundproofing throughout; cot and high chair provided. This was our second visit and we will be back again. Thank you Anita!

Holiday 2012

  • 5 of 5

We have been holidaying on Portugal for 16 years and this by far was the best villa we have stayed in, If you want a quiet location within easy reach of most locations choose Vimalio, the property was equiped to a very high standard and we wanted for nothing. The games room provided hours of fun on the evenings we stayed by the villa and kept the teenagers in our party fully occupied. I would not hesitate in recomending this villa to any of my friends and we will return. One thing that was well recieved was when we did have a slight problem the owner was contactable and on hand to resolve the issue straight away.

* 5 stars as far as we are concerned.

Fantastic holiday!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Just wanted to take the time to review our fantastic holiday in Casa Vimalio. We stayed in the villa from the 5th to the 17th august 2012, this was our 1st holiday together with a young baby, so had been a little apprehensive prior to our trip, but must say we needn't have been as this was the best choice possible!! As well as my husband and our young son, our extended family consisting of 10 other people were also there, and the generous size of the villa meant even with such a large group of people and a wide age range, we were still well entertained and not under each others feet. There was a travel cot for my son to use, as well as a high chair, I used the microwave at the villa to do my sons sterilising, using munchkin bags, which I found really convenient, another perk, as if staying in an apartment we wouldn't have access to this. The pool is fantastic, and the temperature was perfect even for our 7 month old son to enjoy, the other young chidren in our group enjoyed the games room and the park. The villa has a lovely BBQ area, which we enjoyed on a number of evenings. When we ate out there is many local restaurants serving lovely food reasonably priced, and there is also the option to drive to other resorts including Val de lobo, Vilamoura and Quinta de lago for more fine dining, we enjoyed a particularly nice meal in a restaurant called perilla natural superb!!

The villa itself is stunning immaculate, and very well kept, the well established gardens, views and ample outdoor seating areas are all wonderful, and thoroughly enjoyed by our party both by day and night, and we would not hesitate to revisit.

McGreavy Family Holiday 2011

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were lucky enough to select this wonderful villa for our family holiday. We are a family of two adults and five growing children each of whom has a different idea on the perfect holiday location. Casa Vimalio exceeded all our expectations, location, size and spacious accommodation allowing you to dine at different locations in the garden throughout the day and late into the evening.

An excellent level of sundries for cooking, essential cleaning and ideal spacious accommodation for lazy evenings in and around the spectacular pool.

Games room gives adults a break from the children knowing they are safe within the secure garden and provides a distraction for children of all ages.

Lazing at the pool, sipping wine and reading a book did the trick. An excellent villa which we would love to visit again in the near future.

Casa Vimalio October 2010

  • 4 of 5

This was a very clean and well equiped villa with that cleanliness extending to the pool which was well worth the additional heating cost. Our only issue during the 10 day stay was the hot water. Whilst we experienced warm sunshine throughout it seems as though the solar heating of that water did not provide sufficient hot water for the 7 residents. The heating override system assisted somewhat but on occasions even this did not provide suficient hot water. This was merely a mild irritation. The maid(s) and the pool cleaners that we saw were extremely friendly and efficient. We could not fault the facilities provided. We would have no hesitation in recommending the villa and would happily visit it again.
