Lovely casa

  • 5 of 5

Had a great holiday in Casa das Rosas. Photos don't do the house justice. Great kitchen,and lounge area very comfortable. Property very clean on arrival. Pool very good for swimming in or just cooling down. many places to sit outside, in sun or shade. The agent very welcoming despite our delayed arrival and took time to explain things. The owners were a pleasure to deal with, by email, and answered any questions. We have stayed in this area several times and enjoy eating out in Portuguese restaurants. Pity the one across the road was closed. We would definitely recommend this delightful casa for a relaxing holiday. A welcome pack , to purchase, would be useful for a late arrival.

Sympathetically modernised farm house

  • 4 of 5

The property was exactly as described in the advert. It was spotlessly clean and provided for us everything we needed for self catering. We had stayed in another property close by in previous years and so the only disappointment was the restaurant opposite has closed down.

However it only took 12 minutes for a couple in their mid 60’s to walk into the Italian in the main village where we had a very nice meal. The walk back up the hill was not timed but it must have taken longer ............

We would stay again.

Charming Rustic Haven

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this property for a week and it was an excellent choice. Set away from the village of Santa Barbara de Nexe but within reasonable walking distance (brisk 15 min walk). Beware of the steep hill on the way back! Situated on a hill, the property was full of charm and character with views down over the countryside and out to sea. The location is a small community with a restaurant straight across the road. This really was a little gem of a place serving superb traditional Portuguese dishes with friendly service. For a quiet night it was simply pleasant to just stroll across the road. It does not look much from the outside however there is a large restaurant to the back of the small bar that seemed popular with locals and tourists in the know. There was another pleasant restaurant within a few minutes walk from the property. Turning left as you leave, it’s a short walk along the country road (on the right hand side). This restaurant has stunning views and the food was tasty, if a little pricey. The village of Santa Barbara itself has a good variety of restaurants and bars to choose from. The village retains a traditional feel despite having an expat presence. As might be expected, there is an English bar serving traditional English food! The Italian restaurant in the village is highly recommended with the food and ambience top notch. There is a small supermarket in the village selling everything you need. We found the location of the property ideal for getting around, being close to the airport and the coast but away from the more touristy areas. Despite the high temperatures during our stay, the property remained cool inside, probably due to the thick original stone walls. The decor was a little dated but lent itself to the charm of the place. It had everything to make the stay comfortable and pleasant. Our only gripe (there had to be something!) was the lack of any instructions in the property. The water completely packed in and only by phoning the person looking after the property (who was most helpful) did we discover the property had its own water tank (beneath the courtyard). This had apparently emptied and needed to be refilled. This was all sorted quickly but it would have been nice to have been pre-warned. There was also an abundance of dust in the place when we arrived and this let down the overall score (so bad was it in places!). However we had a wonderful relaxing stay and would not hesitate to go back.

Estupenda estancia en Casa das Rosas

  • 5 of 5

Simplemente me gustaría recomendar este alojamiento. Hemos pasado unos días maravillosos en Casa das Rosas, mi mujer, mis 2 hijas y yo. La casa es espectacular, hemos estado muy cómodos, y la hemos disfrutado al máximo. La piscina ha sido el mayor atractivo de la casa para mis hijas, y estaba muy limpia y cuidada. La zona exterior es preciosa, hemos hecho barbacoas, hemos utilizado la zona del porche para los desayunos, la zona de la palmera para leer al atardecer. Tiene un cuarto de baño exterior muy bonito y cómodo. La casa muy bonita, y muy bien preparada, desde los utensilios de cocina, hasta el sofá del salón, la televisión, todo perfecto. Las camas muy cómodas. Y la casa estaba impecable cuando llegamos.

En definitiva, era justo lo que íbamos buscando y hemos disfrutado muchísimo estos días. Seguro que volvemos pronto a Casa das Rosas.

Recomendable 100% para familias con niños que busquen comidad y tranquilidad.
