Wonderful child friendly villa so well equipped for the perfect holiday
1
person found this review helpful

We went for the first time to the Algarve with our two young children and our friends with their baby, and didn't know what to expect of the villa or the area.We were so lucky to find Casa da Oliveira! It is only a short drive from the airport and very close to Almancil which we found to be a vibrant town despite it being out of the main season.
Our two youngsters spent hours in the heated pool and the safety fence kept our youngest from wandering into the pool when our backs were turned! Everything we could have asked for was provided with numerous games for inside and out to the superbly equipped kitchen.
We will certainly return to this great holiday villa in its beautiful location.

Liked best: The way the villa provided for a completely happy holiday
Liked least: Not much to complain about but I guess the only downside was not being within walking distance of beaches, shops, etc.

Everyone was Happy

We stayed at Casa Da Oliveira for one week in August 2013. We were a party of two families with Teenagers and one 5 year old. The house was perfect . Clean, Comfortable, well furnished, well equipped from kitchen utensils to pool and garden toys. There was nothing we could think of that wasn't provided. We spent a very relaxing week mainly by the pool and barbequing. We ventured out a couple of times to restaurants of which there was a great choice. The notes in the house were really helpful in directing us to places that would suit our party.
The cleaners arrived mid-week and left the entire house and patio spotless.

I would highly recommend this to families. Everyone was happy- a rarity.

Thank you for your comments about how complete everything is in Casa da Oliveira. As we have our own families that like to stay at the villa we have equipped it as our second home. If we hadn't our own grandchildren would have let us know!!
It was good to hear that the maids left everything spotless. They have been cleaning the villa for a long time now and we often receive praise from our guests for their neat work.

Not to be trusted!

We booked Casa da Oliveira this summer and we had fond memories of the villa, up until we returned home when we got an email from the owner saying and he could not return all our deposit.

The reasons he gave did not add up to the high percentage of deposit we lost. The fabricated lies told by so called "house manager" ( to be honest I wouldn't trust her as far as I could throw her ) were completely untrue.

When emailing the owner to confront these lies he was insulting and seemed to have rose tinted glasses when it concerned the house manager.

I have tainted memories of the villa and I would never recommend this villa to anyone.

This review is so very sad. Over 9 years of renting many weeks a year we have seldom needed to deduct monies from our guest’s deposits. Most own up voluntarily to breakages or damage caused. If it was otherwise we would not have the large number who return year upon year.
Photos were sent of the two items now irretrievably damaged and the relatively small amount deducted was considerably less than the cost of replacing them.
Our housekeeper, as many guests have said, is a lovely helpful lady who has faithfully looked after Casa da Oliveira since we bought it in 2003, and, they often comment on how well she presents it. The language used by the reviewer about people he barely knows was unfortunate to say the least!
As always we bend over backwards to meet enquirers requests and allowed them a higher occupancy than we normally accept as well as hiring a second cot at our own expense. Apart from feeling sad myself that a guest feels this way it is especially sad that they are unable to accept the damage that was demonstrably caused by their party.

Lovely villa - highly recommed it

Just back from our third stay at this lovely villa in Almancil, a part of the Algarve we have visited for the past 20 years. We travelled with 3 generations of our family and the downstairs bathroom and bedroom gave them privacy and proved easy for access.

Just 20 minutes from Faro airport, the villa is secluded (but with other properties close by) and very well appointed, with lots of extras that make it a real home from home. We never use the pool (always go out in Feb half term) but it always looks very inviting and the lovely log fire makes the living room extremely cosy on a chilly winter's evening.

Close to town and plenty of restaurants, golf courses and the beach and easy access to the A22 makes the whole of the Algarve very accessible. Definitely will stay again

It was good to hear such praise from one of our regular renters - we have many that return year after year!
As we use Casa da Oliveira a lot with our own three generations of family we have made sure that the villa is equipped as a home suitable for all ages, not purely as a rental villa.
As our guests commented everything that one could want is nearby and Almancil, 2kms away, is a long established Portuguese townwhich thrives all year round unlike the tourist resorts which can feel a bit like ghost towns out of high season.
We love casa da Oliveira.
