About Julia PYE
Julia PYE purchased this Villa in 2014
Why Julia PYE chose Charneca
We bought the villa as a family home with the view of settling down here during the quieter winter months.The quiet hilly surroundings offer cooling summer breezes wth g glorious views of the coast and surrounding countryside.
What makes this Villa unique
Having Faro airport within 15 minutes drive is a huge advantage when we have family visiting. We are enchanted with Loulé and its open market. We love the local restaurants in Santa Barbara de Nexe. So much to do and explore for all the family.

Excellent & well equipped villa
Stayed at this lovely villa for 2 weeks during August/Sept 2019. The villa is perfect for a family holiday and was well equipped with all modern ammenities. The bedrooms were well furnished, bright, clean and of a good size. The kitchen was smart and modern with all you could possibly need and the bathrooms likewise.
A similar story outside with a large pool (maintained regularly) and patio area with ample sunbeds (of good quality) and seating areas. There was also an upstairs area perfect for sundowners or a space to get away from kids and family! Any assistance required was smartly addressed by Richard the villa manager. A great stay in a great villa, we will be back!
We had a fantastic time at this villa which was exactly as advertised and exactly what we needed for 3 generations aged 6 to 81.
The place was absolutely spotless which was a huge relief after a previous holiday rental where cleanliness was not a priority!
Many happy hours were spent by the pool and the two terraces - upstairs for sundown in particular!
We know the area well and will definitely be back as could not find a single thing that was not perfect !
Thank you Lucy and Julia - see you again !
EVERY THING YOU COULD EVER WANT FOR A RELAXING HOLIDAY!!!!
This is the second stay at Casa Lucia, the villa is so well equipped for the perfect villa holiday. The villa is very spacious and exceptionally clean. Bright new kitchen and also a new, very comfortable terrace for perfect evening entertaining to watch the sunset with a cool glass of wine. We have stayed in many villas but this one is by far the best we have stayed in. Thank you .
Great spacious and well equipped villa
Casa Crow is a wonderfully equipped and tranquil villa.
There is plenty of space for two families, there was 6 of us but 8 could quite easily have stayed.
Lucy and her team were a delight to deal with and the welcome pack was a nice touch and well appreciated.
I would suggest a car is essential, although Uber is available and they are able to find it using location rather than address (just make sure you have it saved for the return trip)
Any (very few and small) problems were dealt with very quickly and efficiently.
The new kitchen is fantastic, lots of space, storage and well stocked. There are two fridges which really help, and save trips to the supermarket. (Continetel ~10mins, Apolonia ~15mins) Apolonia is recommended. There is also an outside fridge by the BBQ.
Around the outskirts of Almancil, you will also find some fabulous restaurants.
For some reason there were a lot of wasps (not normally an issue). We found keeping the outdoor space clean and using Citronella candles (in buckets) very effective.
The pool (heated) was used day and night, really big and deep too.
There is a wonderful roof terrace which we made good use of, the BBQ (Gas and Charcoal) is a great size, with plenty of seating and beds around the pool.
The Table Tennis Table also got good use (might be worth bringing your own bats and balls)
WiFi was quick and plenty of coverage. Lots and lots of TV Channels although we rarely had it on.
A really good villa, which more than helped make it a great holiday. I'm sure we will return soon.
Well appointed villa
The villa is well appointed and comfortable. There is a large swimming pool and the poolside terrace has an abundance of seating. This, coupled with the outside barbecue area, makes the villa ideal for families. We found the rooftop terrace to be a delightful place to relax with a drink, to catch the last rays of sun each evening. The air conditioning was very much appreciated, particularly as the temperature around the pool reached 47 degrees during our stay!
