About Graham & Lynn Harley

Hello, we are a family of five with a daughter and two teenage sons (twins)

We have had the villa since July 2007 and tried to enhance the property as best we can so you can enjoy yourselves as much as possible. We have added home comforts so you find it home from home.

We enjoy just relaxing around the pool, which is a salt water pool we had this fitted because salt water is much kinder to your skin rather than chlorine also it leaves no smell.we also enjoy jet ski-ing and surfing at Baleal beach where they have held the world surfing championships for the last couple of years.

Eating out is our favorite past time as the restaurants in this area are tremendous, in seven years we have not had one bad meal and the wine and beer are so cheap its rude not to indulge.Running along the lagoon path is a must to enjoy the natural surroundings, as a family we use our bikes around the lagoon. Go and enjoy we have for several years, and will continue to do so. Graham & Lyn

Graham & Lynn Harley purchased this villa in 2007

Why Graham & Lynn Harley chose Casalinho

We purchased this villa as the area reminded us of Cornwall in England with coves and soft sandy beaches.

The added bonus was the pine and eucalyptus trees all around and the largest lagoon and wildlife area in Europe. The villa just made our mouths drop as the previous owners had fully furnished the property with quality beds and furniture and simple clean decoration to a high standard.

We also saw the potential to enhance our holiday enjoyment so we added a heated salt water pool, got bikes for all of us and added internet and X box for the kids as you do (now we are left alone to enjoy the sunshine).

The area pulled us in as it is still unspoilt and very community based with the locals still working the land by hand and fisherman living around the lagoon in huts selling to local cafes

What makes this villa unique

All inclusive cost`s including free internet, use of X box 360 and games, Salt water pool (can be heated for small additional cost), Totally un overlooked and secluded enclosed rear Garden, ability to leave your car unlocked as safe area, Relaxing atmosphere as no noise pollution only bird song and waves.

Excellent nights sleep due to luxury beds, black out blinds, no noise or light pollution in area.

We can naturally keep fit as cycle/running/walking path goes around the lagoon and surfing is free (if you have to hire a surf board its only 10-15 euros a day including wet suit).

Locals are friendly, wine is cheap, food is cooked fresh and cost effective, coffee is to die for at £1 a cup.

Parking is free, no speed cameras, no traffic wardens, its like going back 40 years in time.

If you like cornwall you will love it here

Second visit. Just as good. Would go again.

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit in two years. Great to know where you're going second time round as it takes all the stress out of knowing what you're going to get.

Villa very clean and still very well equipped.

Very quick response from owners any time you need to check anything.

Would happily visit again in the future.

Well-equipped, very comfortable villa in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

Graham and Lynn were brilliant at answering all our queries prior to our visit. The directions from the airport were spot on and we arrived to a clean, comfortable and well-equipped villa.

2 hair dryers, a kettle, a toaster, a cheese grater, decent bone china mugs and proper pillows made it feel like home from home. There were only 4 wine glasses (we were 5 adults), but now I'm being extremely picky. There are more than enough pans, Tupperware boxes, glass tumblers and other crockery, a large fridge and a chest freezer.

This quiet and unspoilt area is Portugal's best-kept secret and we will definitely go back. The lagoon exceeded all my expectations - its huge, flat, clean, safe and almost empty beaches are perfect for young families. The tide alters it daily which makes every visit different. Small and larger pools form and are warm for children to swim and play in. If you want to see the huge Atlantic waves, walk out to the mouth of the lagoon for must-see views.

There are shells aplenty and many fish to see. Most days are breezy so a wind-break is a must but the villa has one, plus parasols, a cool box plus ice packs, 3 beach chairs and some buckets and spades.

The 'Pingo Doce' supermarket is 15 km away so it's best to be organised and do a huge shop when you go, as you won't want to do this round trip daily. We also tried the Lidl in Peniche (which isn't cheaper as you would expect) and the Intermarché in Peniche (which is more expensive and ran out of bread and milk when we turned up at 4pm on one occasion). There is a man who drives around the estate selling bread each morning between 10-10.30am. Listen for his distinctive horn and as well as bread he sells the delicious Portuguese custard tarts (pastel de nata). I'm not a huge custard fan but I love these and the pastry is to die for.

Make sure you visit Obidos and taste the cherry liqueur in a chocolate cup (they do a children's non-alcoholic version too) and walk along the city walls. Nightlife is dead here but inside the city walls it is so beautiful and well-preserved.

We ventured across the other side of the lagoon one day to Foz do Arelho, where it was breezier and busier, but nonetheless still worth going. We had a delicious seafood lunch (plus children's menu) in a beach-front restaurant for very reasonable money.

Thank you Graham and Lynn for a great villa and thank you Silver Coast for a fantastic holiday.

Lovely villa

  • 5 of 5

We are a family with 3 active boys aged 7,12 and 17. The villa itself was beautiful, clean and comfortable. The pool was a huge hit, deep enough at the deeper end to do lots of jumping in! The safety fence around it also provided peace of mind. The wifi was also a success when you have teenagers that want to spend a day at home. The use of the bikes and the belly boards was a real bonus as it would have cost quite a bit to hire. Having basic household products already in the house was great as usually we have to go out and buy all that kind of stuff. The location of the villa is quiet and as there was no one in the adjoining property we didn't need to worry about all the shrieking and laughter in the pool. The local supermarket recommended by the owners was easy to find and met all our needs (especially the cheap beer and wine ). Local beaches are breathtakingly beautiful and the lagoon beaches meet the needs of everyone. We used economy car hire and could not fault them. Overall a very enjoyable holiday.

My youngest child has just said " write that the youngest child says it was the best villa in the whole world and he wants to live there "

Its a great place to go out and about and explore, We go at least twice a year and still find breath taking views and new areas to enjoy even after 7 years. We are so pleased and happy when families like yourselves are happy, we can just picture your 7 year olds face as he said that. Thank you for enjoying the Villa that's what its there for, have a great year Graham and Lyn.

Pine Heights Villa

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we enquired to arriving home communication from Graham and Lyn has been great. Villa did not disappoint us, it was fabulous, it was well equipped, comfortable and spotlessly clean. Heated pool was fantastic and was used every day. It was a bonus having the beach a 5 minute drive away. Having the villa cleaned and beds changed during our stay was an added bonus, the maids were very polite as was the gardener and pool man. Bikes came in very useful for dad taking the kids out to explore the area and leaving mum to relax by the pool. Lagoon area is stunning and quite quiet with a lovely wee restaurant (Edgars) that was reasonable and very good. Surrounding area was quiet but had lots of character especially Obidos and yes we did partake in trying the cherry liqueur and chocolate cups which were delicious. Having a good wifi service came in very useful especially having a 12 year old and a 10 year old. Looking forward to booking up for next year........

Owner's Response: Thank you for you honest comments, we are so happy to here you all enjoyed a unique holiday with a different twist. Yes we also like the local liquor Ginger it is a little bit special after two or three. Edgars is a new bar and restaurant and we have not had the pleasure to try but we hear the take away pizza is good, like all the bars and restaurants quality and price are very good. Once again thank you for leaving your comments and the Villa spotless on departure please have the birthday cake and wine on us and if you wish to return we would be more than happy to have you enjoy more of the Villa and the Silver Coast. All the best Graham and Lyn

Fabulous stay at Pine Heights Villa

  • 5 of 5

Our first trip to the Silver Coast with our children aged 12,10 and 8 and we had a fabulous time.Communication and booking with the owners was really easy and they provided comprehensive,user friendly directions and instructions and also ensured the shopping "essentials" we're waiting for us on our arrival. The villa was spacious,clean and very well equipped in a quiet but easily accessible location,with a brilliant heated pool which we all loved.We enjoyed walks down to the lagoon and to the gorgeous sandy beach and also enjoyed trips by car to nearby Sao Martinho,Foz,Obidos and Caldas which were all well worth a visit.We found the Bica Da Lagoa bar and restaurant at the beach very welcoming,with Superbok for a Euro,a stunning view and delicious take away pizzas ,especially good if eaten on the beach.Having only visited the Algarve before,we weren't sure what to expect from a holiday in this part of Portugal but were really taken with the area,the lovely villa,the quiet roads and the friendly people and can not wait to head back for another visit.

Pine Heights Villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a very quiet and relaxing holiday. The villa is well equipped and very comfortable. We made use of the mountain bikes to cycle around the beautiful lagoon, and body boarded at nearby Baleal. The villa pool and Xbox were a big hit with the kids. We ate at some lovely restaurants although a car is pretty much essential; Cozinha D'el Rei and O Tavola were our favourites. Would recommend this villa for a great family holiday.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, We hope to see a new restaurant with its own pool within walking distance for the new season of 2014, as we saw it starting to be built in September 2013. This will only enhance clients stay and enable them to relax just a bit more if that's possible ? You are welcome to come back and enjoy the area and Villa anytime thank you again for staying Graham and Lyn.
