“Fantastic villa and fab pool!!”
Reviewed June 17, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

My husband and I stayed with our 9 month old son and we will definitely be going back again!! The villa is perfect for families and the washing machine came in very handy with the baby! There is a great terrace area that is shaded and gated off from the pool with a lovely table to eat at! And the pool its self is fantastic!! Not too cold and big enough for a good swim to cool off! The air con is a definite bonus as well! Plenty of facilities available for a baby to such as highchair and cot! The surrounding area is beautiful with easy access from the airport (a 30min drive) and other lovely towns like loulé! Restaurante o cerro is somewhere to definitely eat at, the food is delicious and the owner very friendly!! All in all a fantastic holiday and we would not hesitate to return! Thanks

“Lovely relaxing break”

person found this review helpful

We have just returned from a 6 night holiday in the Casa dos Avos and we had a great time. The villa was even better than we expected despite the very positive reviews already on Trip Advisor.
Baby chair and cot all provided, set up and waiting for us on arrival.
The pool was great and our young son loved spending time in the water and also exploring all the plants and trees on the property.
AC was great when required.
Sat TV was as expected - plenty of French and German channels.
We used the Kanguru internet and found the best reception was in the front of the property or on the roof terrace.

Helena and Isabel were very helpful and available for any queries.

Only negatives would be:
The DVD player player did not work but we were not expecting to use it.
The dishwasher did not work but again we did not anticipate using it as there was only a small number of us.

This was a family holiday which we thoroughly enjoyed relaxing by pool. The owner, Maria was very easy to contact and responded almost immediately to our emails, which was very helpful as we have never rented a private villa before. We were greeted by Helena and Isabel who provided us with directions to places to go to and were very friendly and helpful. Location was superb and away from all the noise and so peaceful. Would definitely recommend hiring a car to get around. The locals were very homely, friendly and helpful too. We have already recommended the villa to family.and friends.

“Home from Home”
Reviewed August 28, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

My family really enjoyed our stay. Everything went well from start to finish. The welcome sign to greet us was a great touch.

The villa is fantastic. Just perfect for us. Home from home. Weather was very hot so the pool was heaven!!!! Everything was clean and tidy. Plenty of towels, kitchen equipment and even bikes!

We could not fault the villa. Very private. Very clean and a great place to chill. Within 10 mins of everything you need from the local town. Air con inside was a bonus for the kids to chill out!

We went to many places and found Loule and Tavira our favourites.

This is our type of property and location. Would come back.

The owner is very clean and detailed in communication whilst booking. All questions answered. Thanks Maria for a great time. Best holiday we have had in years.

Only constructive feedback I would give is that the photos on the web site do not do it justice!

“Perfect Vacation”
Reviewed February 14, 2013 for a stay in June 2012

This delightful villa was the perfect location for my family's vacation. It is surrounded by a gorgeous countryside and the house contained everything and more. Despite being in a foreign land, once arriving and stocking up on groceries (and wine) at the local supermarket, we lacked the need to leave this private oasis. My family and I did manage to break away and explore the local beaches, which didn't disappoint. After a full day of touring the beaches and towns throughout the Algarve, a quick drive was all it took to return to Casa dos Avos. Unfortunately, before we knew it our week was over and it was time to leave this idyllic place. The week was wonderful, relaxing and we all look forward to visiting again, very soon.
