About Gisela Parente

All our family is from the North, but the four of us (my parents, my brother and myself) have spent our Summer holidays in the Algarve since our teens.

Nowadays, we don’t spend so much time at the Casinhoto as we used to, but we feel the need to preserve and share this environment for our grandchildren and generations to come. We invite you to share it with us!

Gisela Parente purchased this villa in 1971

Lovely property.

  • 4 of 5

Had an amazing time, Magi was so helpful and friendly. She went out of her way to help us .

Property was well maintained and very clean.

Need a car but taxis were cheap and reliable.

Lovely restaurant across the road from the villa.

Very pleasant house close to the sea, place to go

  • 4 of 5

Spacious rent , quiet, very well equipped and totally functional. A nice swimming pool , allowing safe watergames. A charming owner, wishing to respond quickly and efficiently to all specific requests (she has done her best to have Internet installed during our stay), and always pleased to advise us to discover unusual places in the Algarve.

Must be there next holidays

Great Portuguese hospitality,

  • 5 of 5

Great, convenient, and friendly family retreat. The only place we rather stay away from our own home. It provides everything that we need with smile. Casinhoto has been and will be our annual family home away from home since 2011. Never feel lost or confused, all you need to do is ask Margarida. You can have your privacy and join the crowd any time you desire.

Casinhoto. Um local a voltar.

  • 5 of 5

Muito bom local para passar umas férias descansadas. Perto da praia (de carro) e com piscina em otimas condições para utilização quase privativa. Hospitalidade também é 5 estrelas. A repetir!

Very good - clean and tidy.

  • 4 of 5

We were a group of 9 adults and 6 children. All from Norway. We used both houses and found the villas and the garden to be very good! Clean and tidy. The pool was a natural gathering point during the day, and the evenings were mostly spent on the porch. The hostess, Margerida, was very friendly and we all had a very good time. We would love to come back another year.
