“What a Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

My Wife, Daughter and myself have just had a fantastic week at the Casa Mitchell.
We stayed self catering in room 54 and found it very comfortable and well presented with a position right next to the pool and garden. We had breakfast in the room every day but ate out at all other times, there is a small restaurant directly opposite the property which is quite reasonable for snacks and a little corner shop for milk, bread etc. owned by two really friendly people, just up the road. As other guests have mentioned, it is a bit hilly but even two old geriatrics like my wife and myself managed to get down to the Old Town to amble about and to eat.
The Staff at the Casa Mitchell were all absolutely great, always willing to help and always smiling, this makes for a great holiday.
This place is a little gem and well worth looking out for, we will, all being well, go back again.
Thomson's rep Laura also made our stay enjoyable, well done to everyone and thanks or as they say in Portugal "Obrigada".

Apartment was really good, especially for the price. So close to the Old Town. Walked to the beach a few times, looked beautiful and the sea was so calm. Not too hot at end of June and nice breeze too. Pool at the hotel was smallish, but not too cold. Even I went swimming almost every day. Plenty of restaurants in easy walking distance, particularly liked "O Catraio" (food to die for), and "O David" where the waiter was amusing. Leo's bar (across from apartments) does snacks and drinks very reasonably priced. Staff and customers friendly too. Was impressed when we only had to wait an hour for our room. Not supposed to book in 'till 3pm but our flight was 6am from Cardiff, so we were early. Nicho sent someone over to clean our room and looked after our luggage while we went for breakfast. You book in at Reception across the road in Villa Branca. As we also left early we posted keys through letterbox, so didn't get chance to thank owners and staff for a wonderfully peaceful holiday. Hope they read Tripadvisor reviews. Lastly, I would like to comment on Yellowfish transfers- to and from the airport. Drivers were punctual, polite, informative and spoke excellent English. Won't hesitate to use them again if I return to Algarve.

we have stayed at casa Mitchell before as its location, facilities suits our needs this is our 4th stay ... its kept spotlessly clean well maintained etc. all of the staff greet you when they pass and exchange conversation with you.. must say that the maid is fantastic she cleans the whole complex by herself and does a fantastic job ...
the kitchen is basic but has all the things you will need.
I recommend café leos across the road we ate there for breakfast most mornings 4.90 for a full English breakfast with coffee/tea or freshly squeezed oj.. and its spot on. they also do snacks like toasties/burgers/salads/chips/homemade soup... and e 2.00 for a large beer ! cant fault it and luiz is a great guy.
tenis pizza round the corner is ok for pizza/pasta and they open 12.00pm till 2am
Victoria bar at the top of the street is worth a visit and cheap !
casa Mitchell is only 10 mins walk if that to the beach and 5 to the square and it is set away from the noise so you will get a good nights sleep too

My wife and I stayed here from 22nd may for 2 weeks, and what a fantastic time we had. The place is spotlessly clean , quiet and peaceful, adults only which is a bonus. nice and clean around the pool area as well, towels and bedding changed regularly, the staff at CASA MITCHELL are also very friendly and helpful, only 10 mins walk to the old town where there are bars and restaurants to suit all tastes. We had room 71 overlooking the pool area and a small view of the sea, WOULD I GO BACK HERE? MOST DEFINATELY. Top marks CASA MITCHELL

Room Tip: all rooms seem to be ok

Just got back from a fab holiday in this little gem. Ideally located from beach and old town. Booked this after lots of research and advice from friends. Excellent value for money, booked late with Thomson - £412 for 2 inc flights and transfers!!!!! Beautiful part of Portugal and will visit again. Lots of walks, restaurants and bars to suit everyone. Urban Pizza fab and Bar Sangria - doesn't look much but if you like Marley and reasonable priced drinks check it out.

We stayed her for 7 nights starting 18th May. A very spacious apartment with Dining room separate large bedroom and bathroom. A good size balcony overlooking the pool. The staff are very friendly and will find anything out for you. Air conditioning included. Situated in the old town which is a 10 minute walk the same as the beach. Would have no hesitation in staying here again.
