Farmhouse
Casa Grande, is originally one of the oldest farmhouses in the area, and therefore has its own very unique character. It has 6 bedrooms (one wheelchair friendly), all with en-suite shower or bathrooms, and is set in a peaceful rural location. This is the perfect location to relax, recharge your batteries and even party every day if you wish, as there are no immediate neighbours. It is only 2 km from Porches, 7 minutes to Carvoeiro and 3 minutes to Lagoa. Within 5 minutes drive, there are a wide range of excellent supermarkets. The property itself is surrounded by wine vineyards, and boasts fantastic views of the Monchique Mountains (well worth a visit) and the surrounding countryside.

The nearest beaches are only 5 minutes away. To note, we have, Praia da Marinha - voted in the top 100 beaches in the world, Benagil beach - great to get a boat for a cave trip and see the stunning Algarve coastline, and Albandeira beach. Within 15 minutes drive you can choose from 5 different golf courses. Less than 45 minutes from Faro International Airport, this is a perfectly located property to explore everything the Algarve has to offer. Alternatively, you may just want to stay in and chill, enjoying all the facilities at the Villa, listening to music through the Sonos system. Fully fenced in landscaped garden with electric entrance gates. Pool, jacuzzi and sun deck separately fenced. Regularly, we accomodate guests with special needs, as it is wheelchair friendly, has a wet shower room and is fairly flat around the house itself. --------- The property has six bedrooms, two of which have king sized beds, the others have twin single beds. All bedrooms are en-suite with either single / double showers and/ or bath. Both bedrooms with king-size beds are on the first floor. Wheel chair access is available to one bedroom, with a wet room, special washbasin and toilet (even though you would not notice). The main advantage of the property is that there are various different areas to be. In that way, nobody gets in each others hair!! Cots and high chairs are available at the house. Bedding will be provided, along with face, bath and pool towels.The pool is about 13m x 5.5m. This can be heated, if required, at extra charge of 250 GBP per week. There is a 7 night mimimum charge. An important note is that the pool area is fenced in, thus giving more peace of mind with regards to little ones. There is also an outdoor jacuzzi in the pool area. Free wi-fi is available in the house, plus an additional access point covering, the bar, the barbecue area and some terraced areas, such as the outside sofa area and some parts of the pool terrace. A very popular option with our guests is draught Sagres beer, costing 120 Euros for 50 Litres (approximately 90 pints). We also have Strongbow Cider at 130 Euros for 30 litres and draught white wine at 120 Euros for 30 litres. It is amazing how well these drinks go down in this climate! The beauty of the outside dining/ kitchen area is that it is covered and shaded, a good escape from the sun. There are two barbecues one gas and very easy to use (plus you don't get your hands dirty!), or another for the charcoal aficionados as well as a new log pizza/bread oven. There is also an oven, gas burners, two fridges, dishwasher and cutlery in that area to save carrying back and forth. The house boasts a Sonos music system, with thousands of songs to choose from, as well as many internet radio stations. This music selection can be played in all rooms if so required, as well as the pool area and barbecue. If that is not enough you can stream your own selection from your own playlists directly from you iPhone, iPad or Android device! A full Sky package is available including films and sports as well as cable tv with many english spoken channels. Fibre optic internet delivers a high speed internet connection. In the entrance, there is also an area with a separate tv and playstation 3, with games for all ages, karaoke, etc.,and a selection of board games etc. There are also quite a few books for your reading pleasure. To keep everybody active, we have a pool table, table tennis, football table, darts, football and nets, three adult and three children bicycles, water polo nets, and a trampoline. Additionally there is a outside play area for young children with climbing frame and slides. There is a small herb area, to use at will, some fruit trees, avocado trees and passion fruit growing. Obviously, we cannot guarantee that they will be in season or ripe for eating. In essence, these are all the ingredients for the perfect family holiday. WEDDINGS AND CELEBRATIONS AT CASA GRANDE: There is an event surcharge of £2,500 for any form of event or celebration. The Refundable Security Deposit would be increased to £2,500 in these cases.

Paradise in Porches
Photos can sometimes be deceiving but not here! Casa Grande was our villa for a week! 10 adults in wonderful accommodation all with en-suites and with everything we needed. The inside was wonderful, so clean, lots of storage space , great beds and showers but the outside space and pool stole the show for us as the weather was amazing and it’s where we spent most of our time. Outdoor lighting and the Sonos system was an added bonus!!! Loved the outside kitchen area where they have duplicated all the crockery, cutlery, glasses etc. no running back and forth from the villa kitchen! The beer and wine on tap at the outdoor bar was a big hit and the ice machine and 2 massive fridges inside and 2 out enabled us to keep everything cool. Loved the pool table, basketball net, jacuzzi and the space! We bought fresh fish from Pingo Doce and used the pizza oven too! Brilliantly close to supermarkets and beaches. Howard was brilliant! Met us on arrival for our tour and saw us at the end too! Great communication, clear instructions and a wonderful list of things to do while we were there. Thank you for the house cleaning, pool cleaning and gardeners while we were there too! This is a wonderful villa and if we can we would love to come back one day!! THANK YOU!

Great Place for a Larger Group
Casa Grande was a great place for our golf group of 11. It was centrally located to all our golf courses, restaurants and towns to visit. The location is great as it is very private and hidden away, but minutes from all amenities. We spent every day/night outdoors in the pool, hot tub and having the outdoor kitchen was perfect. Communication with Howard was excellent leading up to and during our visit. I would recommend Casa Grande to anyone looking for a nice large villa for their stay in the Algarve. Thanks again to Howard and his team. Don G.

Relax in the outstanding
Just returned from Casa Grande for the third time - absolutely fantastic! There were 9 of us in our group ranging from 4yrs - 44yrs. The facilities are excellent, we couldn't keep the kids out of the pool, the BBQ and Bar area were in use every day, and the service from Howard (owner) and his team was second to none. Howard arranged airport transfers, and a hire car to be delivered to the villa on arrival day, taking all the stress out of our journey. We only hired a small car to go to the supermarket (excellent range within 7mins) and we used Uber for all group outings which worked very well. We were all sad to be leaving after a relaxing two weeks, having created some special memories, and we would all like to return in the future. Thank you Howard for everything.

Wonderful time
Really lovely accomodation, both inside and out. Loads of space. Everything has been thought of and well equipped. We were a group of three couples each with young children. There’s so much for the children (trampoline, little climbing frame, ride on pedal tractor, not to mention the large beautiful pool which we had heated and was a delight). Having the fence around the pool was a real benefit too with young kids. The beer on tap was a lovely touch and nice to have Sonos speakers both inside and out by the pool and the bar / outdoor lounge and dining area. We had a really lovely time and certainly hope to be back. Nearest beaches are a short drive away and there are many beautiful beaches within short drive. Such a lovely comfortable stay.

Family Holiday
Where do I start on this review . Casa Grande is a fantastic place to have a fantastic family holiday , spent lazy days by the large pool with a cheeky beer from our very own outside bar. This villa has catered for all your needs . The kids had great fun in the pool , jumping on the tranpoline and playing pool and table tennis . Did I mention the beer , wine or cider on draft . Location was perfect quiet but not that far from beaches or restaurants. We has music on all day and night on the Sonos system .Howard the villa owner and son David where great hosts and made the holiday fantastic . So if your looking for a great family / Friends villa holiday I would fully recommend here.

Escapism
This is the beauty that keeps pulling you back! Quiet, well cared for oasis amongst the vineyards outside of the little town of Porches on the Algarve. As always Howard (owner) and Sao (housekeeper) welcome you back. Nothing is a bother for either, they want you to have the best holiday possible. After visiting Casa grande so often we genuinely feel like meeting friends. How many properties do you know where the same team is still looking after the property on your seventh year! We are a family ranging from 10 to 69 and we all love it here. The space allows everyone to do what suits them and come together when desired. We spend so much time outdoors in the amazing ‘mini resort’, there are covered areas for those of us like me who burn easily. What mod cons do you need when staying at a high quality villa? You have them here. Heated pool, hot tub, pizza oven, gas & coal BBQ, Children’s play areas, games room, table tennis, trampoline.... and I could go on! Each year we notice that Howard has upgraded something, this time to a temperature controlled shower next to the pool/Hot tub (yes if you want a warm pre shower you can!). Great location with massive choice of good restaurants and beaches. Book early though if you want a slot amongst the many regulars like us who return to this oasis of calm every year. Thank you team Casa Grande.

A great relaxing place for a family holiday
This was our 5th stay at Casa Grande and we have never been disappointed. It is such a perfect place to stay for a relaxing holiday. The owner (Howard) is always available to help with any issues (although these are always very minor!) and the house and gardens and pool are always maintained to a high standard. Our party ranged from a 6 month old infant through to an oldie in his late 60's and I can honestly say that the house suited and worked for all of us. the location is also great being close to some great beaches, bars, restaurants and supermarkets! We plan to go again next year and are already looking forward to it.

Bringing outdoor living to Life
I must start by saying I would recommend this Villa to everyone 6 bedrooms all ensuite,giving everyone there privacy and no waiting for others The open plan living space is well layed out and and allow everyone to have there own space whether in the lounge dining area or kitchen But in my view this house comes into it own outside bringing outdoor living to life With an outside kitchen,with gas BBQ, charcoal BBQ,pizza oven, dishwasher and cupboard space galore and a dining area to seat 14 Your own private bar with drinks on tap if required Outdoor lounge area with electronic roof canopy for sun or shade Surround sound music through out the house and garden was great The pool was great and very large and heated if required (bliss) The lighting outside at night was excellent really made the most of the surroundings The house is close to the beaches 5/10 mins max by car and fantastic beaches as well also close to slide and splash and Zoomarine to keep the kids occupied and as Arnie says We'll be back

Lovely villa family friendly
We visited Casa Grande for a family holiday on 1st June for one week. Howard was there to greet us on arrival and give us the lowdown on the Villa. To say that he had thought of everything would be an understatement - even pool towels were provided. We had a wheelchair user and 3 very young children under 5 years of age in our group. The fenced pool was a godsend as we could relax and not worry. The trampoline was a big hit as were all the various toys in the garage. The cold beer on tap was very popular as was the outside kitchen, BBQ and pizza oven. São our cleaner was amazing and nothing was too much trouble for her, one of the best. Howard was available at all times if we had any queries. We had the pool heated which was lovely and the jacuzzi was fabulous. We hope to return to this lovely villa in the future.
