Had an amazing holiday here with my extended family. plenty space for everyone and the added bonus was the annex which meant some of us could have our own space. The property was very well equiped with everything you need for a relaxing holiday. Paul and his wife have thought of everything from books, games chidrens toys and plenty of pool toys. They also have use of a cot highchair buggy carseat etc so no need to bring everything with you. Only 5-10 mins travel to restaurants and supermarkets and about 20 mins to Albufeira. Also about same to zoomarine. All in all a fabulous place would definitely book again.

Booking our return next year already

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from an amazing stay here. It was the first holiday with our little girl who loved it too. Everything you could need for a family holiday. Hubby usually vows not to return to the same place twice for a holiday but we are already looking at booking this for next year.

What an amazing place for families....

  • 5 of 5

We spent 8 days at Casa de Rosa late September 2012 we just got back yesterday. We had the holiday of a lifetime with our extended family. 6 adults and 4 x 2year olds and one baby. It was just brilliant.The location is beautiful, rustic and tranquil but close enought to the beaches, shops, bars etc. The Villa is beautiful and spacious. The grounds fantastic from the pool, hottub, bbq facilities, amazing orchard. We enjoyed the villa and its faclilites so much we only ventured out a few times as the kids always wanted back to the villa. There are also a few little walks in the area including a dander into the picture postcase vilage of Fonte da Matosa. Thanks also to Paul and Betty who put in a fantastic fence around the pool to make it supersafe for the kids and also let the adults have their fun too. I would highly recommend the villa to anyone if you go once you will definately want to go back. PS The pictures do not do it justice it is even more beautiful!

Wonderful Place

  • 5 of 5

Just writing to say that we loved our stay in this wonderful place. It is so quiet it really is the perfect setting.

Your own Pool and Hottub so no rush for a sunbed in the morning.

We have two kids and the fact that the waterpark was only a 5 minute drive away was like a dream come true for them.

Portugal holds many fantastic memories for us as it's where we went on our honeymoon many years ago. The old town in Albufiera is less than a 30 minute drive away, this is a favourite place for us but beautiful towns like Sives and Porches are much closer.

The local village is very pretty but could do with an injection on English !!

One thing I would say is that if you stay in this lovely villa you really need to have access to a car. The nearest shop is about a 30 minute of so walk (5 minutes) in the car away.

The owners are very friendly with great two way communication but why anyone would choose to Live in England if they owned a place like this I'll never understand ! They know the area really well so will be able to help you like they did us.

Enjoy your holiday, if you want to confirm or ask anything feel free to email me

Have a great time. 10/10

Tom and Joanne Saunders.
