Guestbook comments from the owner

‘We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the villa and it certainly accommodated all our needs in fine style! The pool area and choice of outside dining areas were perfect and had a week of glorious weather, eating outside was a real pleasure. The view at night was fab! For a large group the villa offers space and cosiness when required in an extremely comfortable and relaxed environment Thank you for providing such a high standard of accommodation. It was the first time my family has been away together and staying at Casa do Lasco certainly wetted our appetite for more family holidays. I would not hesitate to recommend you’re to other friends and family. Please pass on my sincere thanks to Vera for a very professional and smooth service. Finally thank to you and your family for all your help and for providing the basic grocery hamper due to our late arrival at the villa, it was very much appreciated’ Jessie from Cardiff 22/10/2009

A villa to meet all your needs

  • 5 of 5

In a time when payments of holiday funds are often blindly made at a touch of a button and in slight trepidation of a properties actual existence (we were nearly caught out by 2 fake property listings!) , we were really fortunate to come across this villa and more importantly to come across such honest and trustworthy owners in Tim and Rebecca.Their timely communications both verbally and by e-mail were refreshingly helpful and put us at immediate ease both with the existence of the villa and in assurance of the quality of our stay.

This helpful theme continued throughout our actual stay with all the people lined up by Tim including the villa host, cleaner and taxi contacts being extremely accommodating and even going out of their way to make our stay more enjoyable.

The villa itself was immaculately presented and met all of our needs...which for a party of 14 with 4 small children was a big ask! There was plenty of space, entertainment, eating areas and shade and the pool was also big enough to cater for all. We were there at the time of the 2016 football Euros so a couple of evenings we gathered around the internet TV and again there was plenty of room to accommodate all.

The views from the villa were lovely, made even more special by the uphill location but I would recommend a hire car or a big shop by taxi for your catering requirements if in a big party as the walk to local supermarkets carrying crates of lager, water and lots of food can be challenging in the heat.

A great time was had by all, and my sincere thanks to Tim and all of his team who made our holiday - we would definitely return.

Lovely stay in Almancil

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time as a large family group in this lovely villa. Everything was supplied and the villa was spotless and regularly serviced. Free wifi, lovely swimming pool and beautiful views. Would certainly recommend for a stay for large groups. We hired a car and had easy access to nearby beaches, towns and golf resorts.

A wonderful villa

  • 5 of 5

I took 12 friends out for my 21st birthday. We had an amazing time relaxing by the pool, having BBQS and drinks in the evenings!! It is a perfect size villa and has got everything you need. I would advise you to have a car because we didn't. The local taxi service is very good. Very close to towns to go and play mini golf, clubbing or out for supper. The only thing I was that after 11 you do have to be silent. I would definitely stay in this villa again.

A beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

I have recently submitted a review to trip advisor describing our stay which is yet to be published. I should also like to review our stay on the Owners Direct site.

We were a family party of 13 across three generations. The villa accommodated us all very comfortably! There are plenty of quiet little areas to escape the crowd and relax with a book.

The villa is beautifully furnished and impeccably maintained. The owners and their agents could not have been more helpful throughout the booking process and during our stay!

The villa has extensive views to the ocean and one of our favourite areas was the covered outdoor living room overlooking the pool. It was a shady and comfortable retreat from the sunny poolside. We were able to relax and enjoy the views whilst supervising the pool!

Ther are plenty of amenities locally and a range of supermarkets within a short drive. There is also an excellent restaurant within walking distance.

I would recommend a stay at Casa Do Lasco without any reservation! The attention to detail is amazing even providing pool inflatables.This was not something we were expecting and which subsequently lead to a serious case of pool overcrowding when we added four whales to the already generous pool population!

A brilliant base from which to explore the Central Algarve.
