Casa da Phoeba is Located in a Peaceful and Serene Location.
- english, portuguese
Some time ago, I had the good fortune of reading James Hilton's classic "Lost Horizon". The peace and tranquillity evoked in the description of everyday life in the enchanted village of "Shangri La" left a yearning that has abided with me ever since. Our fervent hope is that our beautifully appointed villa will provide our families, friends and guests with same sense of well-being we so enjoy.
Laura purchased this Villa in 2012
Why Laura chose Laranjeira
Attracted by the ideal climate and culture of the Algarve, we traveled to southern Portugal in 2012 viewing several properties in the hope of finding a villa in a location that offered all the amenities but without the numbing noise and meaningless bustle so prevalent in today's world. We found our gem in the ancient village of Santa Barbara de Nexe.

Luxurious 5 Star Villa - Absolutely loved it!
This villa is a must for the perfect family holiday - absolutely spotless and excellently presented. The pool is a great size and was well used by energetic teenagers! Luxurious patio furniture was well used by not so energetic adults! The neighbourhood is fantastically quiet and added to the relaxation. The village, which is a two minute walk away, has all the amenities you need and the locals are very friendly.
Laura the owner is extremely helpful and responds to correspondence very promptly, and ensured that eveything ran smoothly from start to finish. Deposit was returned within a few days of returning.
Would definitely return to this villa and highly recommend it.
Big thanks to Laura for giving us the perfect holiday!
Beautiful villa and central location
The villa is set just outside a lovely / friendly village, and is very private, facilities are excellent, all you need for a family break. We had a car and planned to drive to various places to visit, which is a must is you want to see some more of Portugal; but if you are happy to chill out, sun bathe and enjoy a BBQ, then you will just need yourselves and a bag. The villa is immaculate and kept very well, Victoriya (the lady who looks after the villa locally) is lolvey and on hand with any information you may require.
An excellent choice for our family, it made a good holiday, a wonderful one.
An amazing villa in a peaceful location that truly is a home from home. The owner Laura and property manager Viktoria could not have been more helpful.
The villa is furnished to an exceptionally high standard and the facilities are fantastic.
We had a wonderful time and would return without hesitation. Perfect for an amazing family holiday.
We stayed at this beautiful villa from 14/08 - 21/08, it had everything and a lot more then we needed. Furnishings etc were of an exceptional high standard, it was in walking distance of local bars/supermarket etc.. Viktoria met us there on arrival and lived next door if we needed help. The owner Laura was very quick at answering emails, my only problem was getting breakages deposit back, that took 3 weeks, but that was not Laura's fault, as its paid back directly from Owner's Direct! Thank you Laura.
Our wonderful holiday
We would like to thank Laura for our wonderful holiday at Casa de Pheba. The villa surpassed our expectations, the photos don't do it justice. The villa is beautifully furnished and decorated, well equipped, Laura had thought of everything and more. Prior to arriving Laura answered all queries and requests promptly, giving us directions and instructions for arrival.
The villa is very well maintained and spotlessly clean. The grounds and pool too are equally maintained and clean.
We had a peaceful, relaxing holiday spending two weeks relaxing by the pool, enjoying the odd glass of wine on the balcony watching the sunset.
Our three children (14, 9 and 7) loved the villa, we awoke to the sound of them jumping in the pool each morning.
The villa is location is quiet and peaceful. However it is within walking distance to the village, where there are several restaurants and two supermarkets.
There was plenty of activities such as water parks, and go karting within driving distance for the children.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and I would highly recommend the villa, we will definitely return.
