Casa Perola was built in 2006 to a high spec and is situated in Odelouca just outside the lovely town of Silves. We also have a Tourist Licence which complies with all health and safety rules. THe Villa is built into a hillside overlooking the picturesque valley of Odelouca with wonderful views of the surrounding countryside with its orange groves and the Monchique Mountains. Odelouca is a conservation area and is ideal for bird watchers and walkers. It's an ideal location for peace and quiet and total relaxation enjoying the Portuguese way of life in this lovely valley. The Valley boasts of a local baker who is just a short walk from the villa and a rustic bar about a 15-20 minute walk away with a restaurant serving local Portugese food for lunches. You'll often see jeep safaris going through the valley. Supermarkets, cinema, shops and restaurants are only a 10-15 minute drive away.

About yvonne bakers
I live with my husband and two grown up daughters in a small market town in Essex. We live not far from the Roman town of Colchester with its castle and also a big Army Garrison.
yvonne bakers purchased this Villa in 2003
Why yvonne bakers chose Odelouca
We originally bought a piece of land and had Casa Perola built to our own specifications in 2005. When we first viewed the land it was so lovely looking over the valley at the wonderful views we just sat there and closed our eyes and enjoyed the quietness of it all and that is what decided us to buy and build. We had to take down the old building but we did renovate the Old outside Kitchen and bread oven, now used as storage. Because we are on a hillside the pool had to be built into the side of it and so is level with the top floor and has lovely views of the Monchique mountains. Although we are rural in location we liked the fact you can get anywhere in about 20-25 minutes. We only started to rent out in 2008 and so far all our guests have enjoyed the location.
What makes this Villa unique
Being only a short drive from the beaches is lovely for a early morning walk. Ideal for bird watchers and walkers. A really away from it all holiday or if you want a bit of the bright lights there is Portimeao, Lagos, Carveiro, Silves which are only a short drive away and then back to the tranquility of the villa. In fact the best of both worlds.

Great villa, great area. Fab beaches within easy reach
The villa and pool were just perfect. The owner was really helpful. The beaches, coastal paths and places to eat all scored highly. Would definately recommend. We will be back I am sure.
Thank you for awarding us 5 stars and we are so pleased you enjoyed your holiday and you certainly would be most welcome back in the future.
This is a very nice place, we loved it.
Thank you Casper, we are pleased you had a lovely holiday and enjoyed the villa. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future.
Fantastic holiday, Fantastic property
After using villas for many years, we found the information from the owner was exceptional with respect to the directions and things to do. The villa was secluded with great views over the hills and was equipped to a very high standard. The pool was perfect and very large (we loved the duck thermometer) and lots of space to laze about with ample shade if needed. The beaches were within a 20 minute drive and the Praia Da Rocha beach was particularly spectacular. We would not hesitate to reccomend this villa and would hope to return in the future
Thank you so much for awarding us 5 stars and also the lovely comments. Should you wish to return to the villa in the future for a holiday then you will be most welcome.
A lovely quiet villa in the countryside. It is very well equipped with everything you could need, it is very obvious that the owners really think of it as their home while they are here. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again or recommend it to anyone else. The owners are very friendly and helpful and nothing is too much trouble. The only down-side is that we had to come home !!!! Thank you
Thank you for your lovely review on our Villa, as you say it is home from home for us and thats how we like our guests to feel "At Home" whilst holidaying at Casa Perola and would love to welcome you back in the future.
"Fabulous" What a wonderful villa Casa Perola is. Set in a great location with beautiful views across the mountains, great pool and well equipped. Located near to shops, restaurants and the beaches are about 20 minutes away by car - what more could you ask for.
A big thank to Yvonne with so much useful information regarding our stay in Silves. Highly recommend a visit to The Medieval Festival held in August.
Would love to visit again soon.
