Welcome to a friendly, relaxing villa; a real 'home from home'.
The heated pool and large patios are the centre of your holiday outdoors.
The pool area is protected by the latest 'childproof' fencing, which exceeds European standards.
The pool was recently refurbished and extended and now features 'Roman End' steps.
The shallow end is great of youngsters, while the remainder of the pool is great for swimming.
The pool area is a great place to spend a day relaxing.
While the underwater lighting helps you extend your holiday into the evening.
Additional poolside lighting makes for a great atmosphere.
The Gazebo is large enough to fit a large table and six chairs - you can eat outdoors in the shade.
All the facilities are close by so that you can have flexibility in the way you spend your holiday.
The Gazebo is also close to the pool.
So the whole family can be together while still pursuing their own interests.
The Gazebo area is also great for 'al fresco' dining.
By day or by night.
Of course, with a bottle or two of the wonderful lical wines.
There is a further outdoors table which is ideally situated for those who love the full sun.
The villa also sits in its own private grounds what are not shared with anyone else.
The villa sits proudly on the side of a hill so you catch the Sun for most of the day.
Every bedroom has direct access to the outside.
And each bedroom has its own South-facing Balcony
The Master Bedroom has two private 1st floor balconies.
Where you can relax in the sun or shade.
and take in the wonderful views stretching to the coast.
The BBQ and outdoor kitchen have been recently installed.
and there are cookery books in the villa to help you use the outdoor oven to best effect.
With lighting to ensure that you can spend a relaxed evening around the dinner table.
The double car port is shaded to that the inside of your car doesn't get too hot.
The Master Bedroom is very spacious.
It has a double bed, is en-suite and Newly-installed and efficient Air Conditioning.
The large double bed is very comfortable and has a new mattress.
opening the shutters and curtains first thing in the morning lets the sun stream in.
The second en-suite bedroom has a full range of facilities.
It also has lots of storage space.
Any direct access onto the sunny balcony.
Together with recently replaced Air Conditioning to keep the room cool.
The third bedroom has newly-replaced Air Conditioning and is great for sharing.
Like the other bedrooms it has direct access onto a sunny verandah.
The upstairs landing has a sofa bed which can be used for two additional guests.
The well-equipped sitting room has a full range of facilities.
and plenty of seats for the whole family.
The sitting room is largely open-plan through the hallway to the Dining Room

The dining room is spacious.
Normally seating 6, the table has sufficient space for 8 people.
The dining room is conveniently situated right next to the kitchen.
The kitchen is fully equipped and has enough utensils and crockery for the largest of families.
The downstairs en-suite bathroom has a full range of facilities
While the upstairs en-suite features a shower, toilet and hand-basin.

“Excellent villa!”
Reviewed October 12, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Excellent location, far enough away from town to enjoy a peaceful holiday, but at the same time close enough to take advantage of all that nearby Santa Barbara de Nexe, Estoi and Sao Bras have to offer. Exceptionally well equipped and maintained to a high standard by the owners. The pool area is excellent and very safe for those with children. The villa lacks nothing!

“Fantastic Villa”
Reviewed August 22, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Casa de Bica is a lovely villa with a great sized pool. It was wondefully warm while we were there and also we appreciated the air conditioned bedrooms at night. The owners have literally thought of everything you might need and have little extras like pool towels, lilos and pool toys, a good collection of DVDs, PS3 and Wii games and crucially for our teenagers, free wifi. We also liked the idea of leaving some basic provisiond for the next guests - we appreciated what was left for us. The villa is also well situated for this area of the Algarve, 15 mins from Faro, and only around an hour from LAgos, with all the beautiful beaches and coastline inbetween. Pick this villa - you won't be disappointed!
