    Additional amenities & feature info
    We built the villa to the highest standards, with a Scottish surveyor and a Portuguese architect, We wanted something that had echos of Moorish architecture (hence the atrium which acts to cool the villa in summer and warm it in winter), yet was comfortable for our eventual retirement. We wanted a comprehensive kitchen to be able to eat in, and a permanent built-in BBQ by the pool so that we could entertain indoors or out.

    The bedrooms are of good size, with built in wardrobes. Our housekeeper is brilliant; she comes in 3 times a week within the villa rental, but may be able to do more if you wish. Our manager Teresa is a dynamic local landowner who also speaks excellent English.

    How to get there
    Airport: Faro International: 40.4 mi
    Arrive Faro Airport which is served by virtually all the low cost airlines and by BA. A taxi can be pre-booked at competitive rates, or hire a car from one of many rental companies (we can advise of our experience of both options). The drive from Faro to Casa Florida is mainly on an excellent motorway, the A22, exiting at Lagoa/Silves. The villa is about 3 kms further, located on the Gramacho Golf Course run by the excellent Pestana Group, who also run the Portuguese national Pousadas. We will supply detailed driving instructions on receipt of a booking. Our average time from Faro Airport is 40 minutes.

Management response:

Many thanks for the kind comments: the team works hard to make sure the ambiance and the whole experience is just what you would wish for. They have been with us for six years, and we keep them employed year round, whether the villa is occupied or not, to ensure that the villa is kept to the highest standards. more

We have visited this villa many times, more recently on our own, but in the past with several of our friends. It is an easy 40 minute drive from Faro Airport. The first thing to say is that this villa is very spacious - it can easily accommodate 8 people, it has 4 large double rooms. All of the rooms... more
