“Excellent well equipped villa”

The villa couldn't have been better. It was perfect for our group of 6 including an 8 week old baby. The bedrooms were a good size and each of the ensuite bathrooms was amazing. The living area is huge and has everything you want. Location is great, very close to the facilities of the Old Village and easy walking distance from the marina.

“Excellent Villa”
Reviewed October 21, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

person found this review helpful

Over the years we have stayed in many villas in Europe & USA and this is one of the best we have ever stayed in. The location within the old village is excellent and it is only a 15 minute walk to Vilamoura 's Marina. The villa is well maintained and spotlessly clean with towels changed half way through our week's stay. Our party consisted of 5 adults and it was easy for everybody to have their own space whether inside or outside the villa. The old village has a few good bars and restaurants but I would recommend the Portuguese restaurants in the square behind the Marina for very good food, service and value for money. If you do not feel like walking back after an evening at the Marina the taxi fare for the 5 of us was a very reasonable €5. I would have no hesitation in recommending this villa to family & friends.

“Perfect Relaxation”
Reviewed October 2, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Our time here was peaceful and the 4 of us had so much space for relaxing. The villa was furnished to an excellent standard and the pool and different decking areas made us all maximise the sunshine into the evening. I would recommend visiting the old village whist here the cobbled streets go on and on and there are many lovely places to eat and drink. I hope to return.

“Amazing villa - the photos just don't do it justice”
Reviewed September 22, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We booked a 3 night break at Casa Toja after reading the great reviews on here and we can now see why! The villa was stunning - beautifully kept, clean, comfortable and just what 4 ladies needed. We each had our own bedroom and en-suite, the pool (although a little chilly) was perfect for cooling off after sunbathing. The villa seemed to have everything you could need (iron, hairdryer etc etc etc). The location was perfect too - a 5 min stroll to Old Village (with a selection of lovely bars, restaurants, small shop). The Marina was a 5 min taxi / small train journey away (the small train picks up at Four Seasons and cost 5 euro pp for a day pass. We ate at The Mariner restaurant (lovely food, good atmosphere) but the highlight for me was Cesteiro Restaurant (on the far side of the marina from Tivoli Hotel, on the 1st floor with a balcony overlooking the marina). Pick your own fish (from a MASSIVE selection), lovely wine, breads and olives and tasty nibbles while the food is being prepared. We also did the 3 hour boat excursion (17 euro pp) which I would also recommend (you also get the change to explore the caves in a dingy as well as a swim in the sea (if you fancy it).

30 mins transfer to Faro airport too, so all in all the perfect place for a short break in the sunshine!

Andy was also great in coming back to me promptly with any questions I had prior to our stay.

Cannot wait to go back!!!

“Beautiful Villa in a Beautiful Location”
Reviewed September 9, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This is the second time we've stayed at this Villa. We loved it last time and this time was even better with amazing bathroom upgrades which are very modern and clean. We also went for the additional new games room option and it was well worth it with plenty of different things to do on an evening in (pool table, PS2, table football, table tennis and darts board).

The main living space always surprises me when we walk in, it's huge! The outside areas are just as amazing with loads of seating areas for either eating or for sitting out to read a book or just to cool yourself down in the pool.

Having WiFi was really useful when it came to printing off our boarding passes mid week and gave us the option of finding new interesting local places online.

The Old Village itself is beautiful and an ideal place to be based as it's only a short walk to the town centre and Marina with loads of nice places to eat. There are plenty of places to run, bike and visit just a short distance away in the car so we were kept busy for our 9 days that we were there. We've already booked out next trip to Vilamoura and were lucky enough to get this villa again! Can't wait!!
