Good size

  • 4 of 5

Great sized house with reasonable sized pool - everything you need is there in the house with absolutely loads of cutlery plates glasses etc plus many other extra little touches.

Very large plot around the house so plenty of room - we were 8 plus a baby and never felt cramped in the house or outside.

Loved the area too with a few good restaurants and bars in walking distance - recommend Angie's for good prices and great simple menu choices and lovely cocktails and staff. Tapas at O amigos was great too both times we went - ribs in particular went down well!

My only downside was the air con. There's only one unit in the living room and it didn't get anywhere near the bedrooms so it was too hot for us. If there was more air con it would've been absolutely perfect.

Fantastic all round!

  • 5 of 5

Myself and family have had the pleasure of staying in this villa a couple of times and cannot fault it. France and Duncan are a pleasure to deal with and nothing is too much trouble. The villa is huge and the games court a godsend with children and a great way to make up for the ice creams you treat yourself to everyday!!! We had our best holidays here and only didn't go this year because our party was much smaller. We hope to return again one day. If you book here you will not be disappointed!

Beautiful Villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this villa over the Easter holidays 2014. Three generations of the same family ranging in age from 71 down to 10 years old. There was something for everyone in this villa, the boys loved the games court and swimming pool. The accommodation was extremely spacious and comfortable and Frances and Duncan couldn't have been more helpful. We really appreciated the welcome pack to get us started. The local beaches are within walking distance and there are so many beautiful coves and inlets that we managed to go to a different one each day. Thank you so much for a fantastic family holiday.

Villa at Castelo beach

  • 5 of 5

Came here in November 13. Had a super family holiday. Three generations together in this lovely villa. Inside and outside space in abundance. We were so lucky with the weather. Sunshine every day. Even managed to BBQ at night as it was so mild. The owners are great people. They made us so welcome and even had a great welcome pack with all the essentials to get us up and running. Everything is close by, beach, shops eateries etc. We shall return without a doubt. If you spend time here you will not be disappointed I can assure you
