“Fantastic villa in relaxing area”
Reviewed November 4, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We enjoyed a family holiday with our 2 boys aged 9 and 11 along with their grandparents. The villa was great with plenty of space for us all and great facilities. The boys enjoyed the pool and the trampoline as well as games of football in the spacious garden. The local area is lovely, relaxing and wild at the same time. Beaches are great for surfing and body boarding which we did on a couple of days. We recommend Arrifana sunset surf for board hire, the hire shops on the beach are very overpriced. We can imagine the beaches and parking gets a bit chaotic in the main season but easy for us. The villa owners also have body boards, wetsuits and beach toys to use which is great. We cooked fish on the BBQ when the weather was good although the kitchen is well equipped (we made good use of the sandwich toasted!). The supermarket in Aljezur is very pricey although the market is good for fruit and fresh fish. We shopped in Lidl when visiting Lagos one day which was much more reasonable. All in all a fantastic holiday in a lovely spacious villa (inside and out!) all made even better by excellent communication from the hosts! Thank you

“Good location with facilites nearby and a local Guest liason in village always on hand if needed”

Before embarking we had looked at various resorts and thought that Vale da Telha, Aljezur was the one for us with grown up daughters. The owners handbook was very comprehensive with suggestions in relation to health care and car hire.
We were asked for our ETA at the Villa before leaving the UK which with a rough estimate were passed on to our site host Cathy.
The car hire recommendations were excellent we chose Zip Auto which sounded a bit doubtful, as the paperwork is done out of the back of a van. But they were efficient and dealt with quite a crowd in an orderly manner, and before we knew it were on the road to the resort in a Renault Clio estate with a roarty exhaust not from the 3 cylinder engine.
When we reached a certain point on our journey from the airport we texted Cathy with our car details so that she could hand over keys.
On arrival at the village we met her and were escorted to the villa.
Cathy then explained what we needed to know and some additions, which we found most useful. Resort hints for Shops Restaurants and nearby beaches. She also stated that she was always on hand if any issues arose.
The local Aljezur Market did very well out of us with fresh fish, Fruit and vegetables. Must not forget Inter Marche supermarket near there which also has a garage as well at a better price than motorway services. The only item that needed prior warning of was the 'Fossa' drainage system especially in relation to flushing toilet cistern. Take plastic bags with you for waste paper.
Barbeque worked very well 1st time I had cooked fish on one the Sea Bass and Mackerel and Prawns, all tasted the better being fresh and tasty.
All beaches and resorts were good clean and staff and locals helpful especially if you tried to speak Portuguese they spoke perfect English.
A trip to the beaches nearby for sunset was do able.
A drive to the highest mountain was testing but worth it.
A drive to Sagres was inspiring as it was thought to be the 'end of the world' for so long.
A good stay with some excellent memories Breakfast on the roof terrace each day Marvellous.

“Great villa in a great location”

people found this review helpful

We have recently returned from a great two week holiday at the villa for our family of five with three boys aged 17, 17, 12. The villa and location suited our family really well for a relaxing but active holiday. The villa is very clean and really well equipped, we couldn't think of anything that was missing. The owners take great care in making sure the villa is of a high standard and that you are well looked after during your stay. From relaxing days by the pool to active days around the coast and larger towns in easy reach, the location of the villa allows the freedom and choice. Make sure you take in some of the spectacular sunsets. Food wise there are some very nice restaurants in easy reach or have your the choice of your own barbeque by the pool. So, all in all a great holiday was had by everyone and we certainly would not hesitate to recommend this villa to others.

“Best holiday ever!”
Reviewed July 25, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

person found this review helpful

This was our first foreign holiday abroad and what a holiday. Casa Bela is a fantastic villa which is very well appointed. Everything that you could ever need to make your holiday that little bit more special was there. The villa and gardens were well-maintained and the swimming pool was great. The children loved playing football and jumping on the trampoline.

Vale de Telha was very quiet, which is just what we needed. Having said this the local shop and restaurants were a short stroll away, this was particular handy for watching Portugal win Euro 2016 (what and atmosphere).

Hiring a car is a must, but it allowed us to explore the area and we visited some of the most beautiful beaches that we have seen, Monte Clerigo and Arrifana (10 – 15 minutes drive). We also visited Aljezur Castle and town, Lagos and Faro. Lagos was a favourite as the marina was stunning and it was only about 30 minutes away. Zoo Marine near Albufeira was also a great day out for all the family.

We stayed for 10 days and we had a fantastic holiday. This was largely due to the villa as it was just what we needed, quiet and relaxing with plenty to see and do in the surrounding area. We will be back and have already recommended the villa to friends.

The service and advice that David and Maxine provided was excellent from start to finish. Correspondence was dealt with very quickly and was very detailed and helpful. Welcome messages and wishing us a safe journey home really made us feel special and was very much appreciated. We were truly sad to leave and we thank David and Maxine for making our first holiday abroad very memorable.

“Lovely holiday villa for families”
Reviewed July 11, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We stayed for 9 nights having flown to Lisbon and driven down (3 hrs) to Vale de Telha. The villa is very well appointed and comfortable - the owners have paid a lot of attention to detail in the finish and presentation of Casa Bela Villa.

Vale de Telha is (fotunately) not the touristy, crowded Algarve that many want to see - there are beautiful, uncrowded beaches and plenty of space.

Casa Bela Villa is ideally situated, close enough to the local shop and restaurants but secluded and not overlooked (just one adjoining property and high hedges.

Whetehr you want to surf in the Atlantic or relax by the pool, or a mixture of the two, Casa Bela is the perfect base - 5 mins drive from a lovelylocal beach and 20 mins from several other fantastic beaches.

The pool at the villa is more than big enough for kids to play in or adults to lounge in - lovely at the end of a beach day.

We shopped for fresh fish in Aljezur market and used the large barbeque at the villa on several nights.

Beware that the Portuguese driving isn't that great - don't expect them to stay on their own side of the road all the time!

“A truly beautiful villa”

What an outstanding villa this truly is. Set in the beautiful area of vale de telha just 10 minutes drive from aljezur. The views are outstanding from the roof terrace. The area is peaceful and the villa itself is very secluded. The owner David takes lots of pride in his villa, It is spectacular and has everything you need for a relaxing week away in the sun. A car is essential due to the location, however you dont mind driving on these spectacular roads for distances as they are that quiet. We went with 2 children and found plenty to do for the week, our only regret is that we did not stay for longer! I highly recommend this villa and would go back again tomorrow in a flash. Thank you again to the owner David for a completely stress free and relaxing break in the sun.
