We really enjoyed our stay at casa Ornelis. Maryanne was really helpful upfront making sure that everything would be great. Enough towels and sheets available, cosy family room, lovely pool.
Lovely villa just 5 minutes walk from Estoi, which is also a lovely Town. Only 15 minutes drive from Faro airport & easy to find. A peaceful & relaxing garden & large pool were ideal, the pool table was great fun & made for entertaining evening. Highly recommended.
Just spend two weeks at the villa which is attached to the owners home. We have holidayed in rural properties for quite a few years, this was the worst. The villa looks far better in the photographs than in is now. We found the beds uncomfortable, the lounge suite was the same, the DVD/CD player did not work. Shower head holders were broken, 1 you had to hold i your hand to use, the other sprayed horizontally.
The patio has a door leading to the owners property which is 150mm short of the floor to allow access for the owners three cats. Behind this door there was a noisy pump or machine which run two or three times an hour from morning until late every day. The pool was being filled the day we arrived, by the time we left the pool level had dropped by 200mm. Outside furniture is aluminium with no cushions making them very uncomfortable.
We book rural properties for the peace and quiet, the one thing we did not get.
A large clean house with everything you need for any length of stay. We enjoyed sharing Mariana's cats! The owners family live next door which was very helpful and not at all intrusive eg when we notified them of a missing hairdryer, it was replaced next day. The house has a huge pool that we used every day, with a couple of pool toys. Rural area but only a few hundred metres from Estoi for a small supermarket and bars, with a short drive to the major supermarkets in Faro and the Algarve Outlets. We walked up to the Estoi market selling everything from clothes to tractors on 2nd Sunday of month. Olhao has a very accessible sea front, fruit and fish markets and boats to the islands and Faro has fantastic beaches near the airport. We had a great time.
The villa was perfect for 6 of us! Great location (get a hire car) and the pool was amazing, the views were pretty special and the weather was gorgeous! Thank you!
Spent a week here with my family as we were attending a wedding in nearby Moncarapacho. It is located only a few minutes outside the village of Estoi, and it had everything we needed. We met the owners partner upon arrival and he gave us a run down on all we needed to know about the property. The villa is well laid out with large comfortable bedrooms , 2 bathrooms with shower and a bath. A fantastic lounge with a full size pool table, Tv with many channels. The outside pool was great and we took full advantage of the fine weather. There are plenty of sun loungers with cushions, and a set of outside dining tables and chairs to enjoy a BBQ in the evening. We were lucky to be in Estoi for the annual Festival de Pinha which was brilliant, a 4 day celebration , finishing with a parade through the town of horses, tractors and various dancing groups and a great fireworks display. Loved spending time with my family in this villa and would highly recommend it.
Perfect relaxing villa. 7 adults plenty room, well kept, clean and well equipped. Great pool, we paid extra for winter heating so used pool every day during our week in March, Perfect directions made it easy to find. Short 5 minute walk into Estoi tried a few nice little restaurants, great food and inexpensive. Locals very friendly. 15 minute drive from Faro airport, well recommended lovely owner who respects your privacy.
