The property was as described.

  • 5 of 5

This house was chosen primarily for the location, the number of rooms and the poolside area and views. However it is so much more. We had an extended family and so the 4 en-suite bedrooms were just right for our family.

The house is beautifully decorated, clean and is comfortable both inside and out. The pool area has large gardens with perfect areas for al fresco dining.Our towels were changed regularly and there was a maid service, cleaning the house twice a week. Although there were wide screen televisions in most of the bedrooms, we only used the main one in the living room which had Sky TV with the sports package and with children's channels. There is a great barbecue area on the property and all the facilities you would expect from a house this size.

There is a large supermarket which is close enough to walk and we did a fair share of sampling the local restaurants which were all very good.

I would have no hesitation in rebooking this property.

A beautiful villa with everything you need

  • 5 of 5

The villa has everything you need and more but you need a car. We paid to have the pool heated which was well worth it. Most tourist attractions are not far away, we visited Zoomarina, Aquashow Park & Quinta Do Lago which are all worth a visit, only negative is you can't really walk anywhere

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

Loved the whole family feel about this villa. Quiet location but close enough to amenities (car hire is a must as its a two minute drive but a lot longer to walk). Pool is just fab, games room fun for all. My only one criticism is that the beds around the pool are a little uncomfortable and because of their design you can only lay on your back.

We have booked this lovely villa again for another 2 weeks next year. 😃😃

5 star villa with 5 star views

  • 5 of 5

Just back from a fantastic week staying at Casa Vimalio, Loulè. We travelled as a group of 6 adults and 3 babies. I would rate the villa as the best accommodation I have stayed in.

The villa is set in a large gated plot with amazing views over to Quarteria and the sea.

There is a BBQ area with and outside fridge and the option eat outside. There is plenty of comfortable outside furniture which we put to great use most nights enjoying the warm evenings with a glass of wine. The pool is large, very clean and heated. We are used to unheated pools which are normally too cold for the babies to enjoy so this was one of the best points for us. It was even warm enough for my 9 month old to enjoy. Pool towels and sun loungers even lilos are provided! Close the pool cover over at night to keep the heat in. The games room is great for the kids (men) there is table tennis, fusball and 2 arcade machines. Inside wows as much as the outside being spacious and spotlessly clean. The living dining area comfortably fitted our party of 9 and has sky tv/ xbox/ ps3 etc. Both the inside and outside have wifi connection.

Kitchen is extensively stocked with all types of utensils you would ever need including washing machine and two fridge freezers.

There are two kingsize and two double room. We stayed in a king room which was big enough to fit a cot in next to the bed. They had provided a travel single bed for my toddler to sleep in so we could all stay in the same room which was a nice touch. Each room had plenty of cupboard and drawer space and had TV and freeview. Our room had an ensuite bathroom with a shower. There were another two bathrooms each with a bath. Again all rooms were very comfortable and clean. The maid came half way through the week to change the towels and do a general clean up.

The villa is about a 40min walk to Loulè which we managed with prams on a few occasions. But only costs 4 euros one way in a taxi. There are buses but you have to walk halfway to town before you pick up the route. Loulè is a quieter town compared to the larger resort towns but there was still plenty to do for the week. The little castle is definitely worth a visit and they have a great fish/food market in thd middle of town. We particularly enjoyed eating at restaurante Afonso III and Bocage. We hired a taxi to take us to the beach in Quarteria for the day. 26euros each way 30min travel.Nearest shop is continente 5mins in a taxi.

Definitely going back next year!

The perfect villa!

  • 5 of 5

Our party of 7 (covering all ages!) stayed at Casa Vimalio for two weeks. On reviewing the villa when booking our holiday, it did seem to be the perfect place for us. In reality it was even better.

The layout is terrific, and great to have a bathroom with each of the 4 bedrooms. The games room provided much entertainment for the 3 children (and the adults!). Also a "home from home" regarding Sky TV, X-Box, TV's, great Wi-Fi access etc.

It is in a lovely location, affording wonderful views of the countryside and to the ocean. Many of the Algarve beaches can be reached very quickly, that is if you can tear yourself away from the poolside!

I would wholeheartedly recommend the villa (and have already done so) to friends and family.

If you enjoy fine dining, we visited (twice) the Restaurant Le Marquis in Gorjoes, which is only a 10 minute drive. A splendid place if you get the opportunity.

In conclusion, I cannot speak highly enough of the villa, and many thanks to Anita and Ian for allowing us to use their beautiful place.

Excellent first trip to portugal

  • 5 of 5

Just want to say what a fantastic holiday we had at Casa vimalio. We were 3 couples and 4 young children and I have to say the villa was one of the nicest places we have ever stayed. So relaxing and peaceful and perfect location especially travel time from the airport which was great with 2 1 year olds in our party! We took day trips to nearby towns and resorts which were all very handy to get to and the book that is left in the house has really helpful tips of places to visit (we loved villa moura!) The pool was amazing, the kids are still talking about how much they miss it and the games room was a good addition to keep

the kids busy and good for a break from the sun. Loved all the seperate little areas to relax around the villa. The garden and pool as well as the whole house was very clean and had all amenities. It was very spacious, we didn't feel overcrowded even being a larger party. All in all we loved Casa vimalio and hope we can visit again! Beautiful house Anita and Ian!

The nearest beaches are about 10 to 15 minutes drive away, such as Vale do Lobo, Quita do Lago 20 to 30 minutes are Vilamoura, Albufeira and many more along coast.


Faro airport is 15 minutes drive from Vimalio. Lisbon is about 2 and a half hours away. Car hire and flight details are available on request.


The nearest town is Loule, this is about 5 mins drive from Casa Vimalio. This is an old market town and is full of the real Portuguese locals, it has small bars and restaurants and many local shops. It also has a market (mainly fruit) on a Saturday morning.

Further Details:

The Modelo is one of the main supermarkets, and is situated just outside of Loule central.
