Just back from 16 wonderful days in Casa do Vale! Great views to the town and sea, 15 minutes walk, less than 5 in a car, €5 in a taxi. Pool was cleaned every morning and roomy surrounds were spotless with plenty of sunbeds. 30 minutes from Faro airport and 15-20 minutes to Albufeira old town. Beaches and restaurants were fantastic and near. A thumbs up from adults and teenagers!!!
I would recommend a car but it's not absolutely necessary, we walked to town in the evening and got taxi back.
This villa is the last word. The pool is fabulous and perfect for adults and kids alike. Accommodation is superb and of a very high standard. I came with my husband our daughter and her husband and two kids aged two and a half and 6 months. Its perfect for all our needs. Nearby hotel encouraged us to use their facilities even though we were not residents. Mini market attached was excellent for providing us with cost saving taxis whenever we needed them. Ten minute walk to lovely restaurants but a car is advisable
Perfect family holiday villa in beautiful location. Can only rate 5 stars. Near to amenities and a great riding center. The owner was helpful and friendly. Around 10minutes taxi drive to the old town and 15 minutes walk through great Portuguese country side to olhas d'aqua. The location even smells fantastic with the orange blossom in the air. The villa its self is equipt with everything you need for bbqs and family dinners. Great showers and comfortable beds. Albufeira is rammed with things to do. Many great memories made in casa do vale and we will be returning soon.
