“perfect holiday 'geta way'”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2008

my two young children, husband tobe and myself stayed at casa de horta in march for 10 nights. we booked direct with company and got good last minute discounts and free transfers from airport. they accomodated our children with cots, highchairs, microwave etc. everything we asks for was no trouble. the place lived up to its glossy pics on the website. all the staff were excellent. the accomadation was clean, large and well maintained inside and out.
it was great to be able to pick fresh oranges and lemons each morning with the children and make our own juice and smoothies.
the area was charming, true portugal... no posh hotels or bright lights, but lovely walks and fantastic views. nearest beaches were between 15- 30 mins walk, local shops and resturants were lovely. we didn't get a car in the end, we either walked or got taxi, this was fine for us as we love walking however if you dont like walking then i would recommend a car.
overall we had a perfect holiday and we will be returning in sept 2008.

Stayed March 2008

4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2007

These apartments are great but quite far out and on a dark road walking back so I wouldn't recommend it to people with young children. Set in an orange grove it is a lovely relaxing location but you can get some creepy crawlies and things being so close to the grove. Apartments are a good size and well maintained. Better for a pool holiday rather than a beach one and I would recommend getting a car for at least a few days and seeing some of the places the Algarve has to offer because it is just fabulous. Not the place if you want to give your kids freedom but great if you are after a nice relaxing getaway. I was 13 when I went and had a great time but I think if I'd been a few years older I wouldn't have liked not having the freedom.
