Communication was very good from booking to departure... when arriving from the US and UK, it is wonderful to feel secure that things would go smoothly. Helen was available and dependable, besides being delightful and a good source of knowledge. Any concern, however small and there were very few, was immediately addressed. We had beautiful weather (mid to later April) and the pool, heated, was very nice. Must mention that their van service (for us, personable Pedro!) was excellent for those days when a friend or two was using the rental car. The Algarve is a beautiful, lovely, diverse region (we went away from the beaches) and in my experience...the people are hospitable and welcoming! Memorable holiday.
We have just returned from a fantastic and relaxing 7 night stay in this beautiful villa. Having two very energetic sons, the outdoor space sold this villa for us and upon arrival it didn't disappoint. The grounds are maintained to an extremely high standard with the patios and pool area in spotless condition. We ate breakfast outside every morning. The electric gates made us feel extremely safe, albeit that the area is very quiet and secluded anyway. The living area was fantastic and we made use of the open fire each evening. There is nothing better than watching the glow from an open fire. The main bedroom was large and airy with a lovely bathroom. Our boys used the second bedroom and found it comfortable and loved going straight to the pool via the patio doors. The kitchen facilities were great too with all the crockery, cutlery and other utensils you would need. Helen, who met us upon arrival was extremely friendly and helpful and showed us round the house. We had an issue with one of the toilets but Helen arranged for to be sorted within 12 hours of us contacting her. We paid extra to have the pool heated and it was worth every cent, it made all the difference. We have rented quite a few houses over the past couple of years and I can honestly say that overall this house has been our best rental yet. We will be back.
Lovely house and pool. Nice location but more out of town than we realized but easy drive. Comfy beds and pillows. House and grounds very clean and well kept. Our only comment but not a complaint, we would have liked some plastic glasses for the pool and patio. Helen met us and was very friendly and helpful. Thank you.
Just returned from Portugal after spending 2 fabulous weeks with the family at the Villa Cashina to celebrate my sister Carole's 70th birthday. We had a a lovely surprise when Helen, the villa manager, turned up with a birthday cake for Carole from all the management and staff from Villasduma. The villa was very well equipped, spacious and light, the gardens are well kept. The cleaning staff are very efficient and friendly. I would recommend this villa to anyone interested in renting a villa in a quiet location. Helen is very friendly and very helpful.
Beautiful and secure property and location. Both the owner Nuno and the host Helen were extremely accomodating, Helen in particular was wonderfully helpful and such a nice lady.
Property was well equipped with lovely open fire and large pool (too cold to use in January).
Very nice stay indeed. Thank you.
