    A lovely family villa sleeping 8 + cots in the hills around Caldas de Monchique above the Algarve coast. Offering a large private heated swimming pool, private tennis court and set within two hectares of grounds.

Casa Childs is our benchmark - the holiday by which all others are judged - even by our 5 and 7 year old! The other reviewer is right - the photos don't do the house & grounds justice - the pool is wonderful, the views are stunning and the house has everything you could want. My wife and I are quite serious tennis players so to be able to play whenever we wanted was holiday perfection.

The house is up in the mountains but only a short drive to the coast. We made a few trips to the nearby village of Caldas de Monchique (a lovely walk but steep!) to have drinks and meals in the square or for afternoon ice-creams.

I would recommend Casa Childs to anyone who wants a slice of heaven.

This beautiful villa, set high in the northern Algarve, has the most spectacular views of the southern coast. It is very comfortable and has one of the best pools we have ever had the pleasure of swimming in. The tennis court also got some use and the local restaurants all added to an excellent break. Thanks for allowing us to share this special place. more
