Just back from our second visit staying with Sally at Casa Grande. As others have mentioned it is the very opposite of chain hotel mundane We have the Pink Room, we love the breakfasts with a shifting cast of guests (always including Sally) the recommendations , the comfort and the informality. We will be back

What a treat, so far away from bland hotel rooms and apartments on the Algarve. We stayed in the yellow room, met lovely people, drank endless perfect coffee with Sally over a delicous breakfast at the huge table. There are lovely peaceful gardens and all 3 minutes walk to the village beaches and restaurants. But the real gem is Sally... More

Sally is an excellent hostess and a really nice person. The beds are good, the suites are beautiful and the breakfast is just excellent: Fresh orange juice, real capuccino, all sorts of bread, plenty of jams, local ham & cheese. We definitely recommend this place. Thanks Sally.

Casa Grande has become my home-from-home over the last year and I wouldn't hestitate to recommend it to everyone but the worst kind of fusspot. It is a divine oasis of battiness and charm and possibly one of the last traditional guesthouses in the western Algarve. The house rooms are all lovely - loads of space, huge big windows and...

My discovery of Casa Grande as a respite from a long and intense sailing voyage was the most wonderful welcome; from my first telephone contact with Sally; who was quite pleasant in response to my heartfelt apology for not speaking Portuguese. . .her happy english accent was wonderfully welcome. . .the turquoise room was ready and waiting to also wonderfully...

A great place to spend your vacation and still feel "at home" thanks to all those little details filling the house with life and storries and most of all thanks to Sally making sure you get the best possible beach, dinner, concerts and star gazing recommendations you could wish for!

We went to stay with Sally at Casa Grande on recommendation. We had a wonderful two weeks, we didn't want to leave! It was like a home from home staying here. Sally was incredibly welcoming, helpful and accommodating. We stayed in the cottage, Casa Pequeña with kids, and it was great! Cannot wait to go back.

Great location close to the lovely village of Burgau, beach and restaurants. Charming mature property. Communal breakfast is a great way to meet other guests and glean valuable info from Sally herself. Could have had a better selection for breakfast. No cereal options. fruit wasn't that fresh and ham/cheese display not that appetizing. Plentiful supply of coffee, tea and bread... More

Seems very strange you were not happy at Casa Grande. Please look at all the reviews and see how you are the odd one out. Everybody loves breakfast. The FRESH ORANGE JUICE, FRESH FRUIT AND FRESH CHOICE OF MEATS. You only had to ask for cereal...they don't fit on the table, but we have many. Hope you are luckier with... More

A colleague at work recommended the area near Lagos, and after the briefest of searches, we stumbled across Casa Grande, and instantly knew it was the place for us. After lengthy email exchanges with Sally (when none of my many questions went unanswered) we finally arrived at the delightfully charming home from home that is Casa Grande. Sally, our host,...

I stayed here with my other half, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It is very much decorated like an old English manor, transported to Portugal. It is simultaneously spacious and cosy. Sally is a wonderful host; very accommodating and puts on a lovely continental for breakfast. She will regale you with tales of the house and her children and... More
