“Brilliant villa and Brilliant owners”
Reviewed 5 March 2017 for a stay in July 2016

We booked the villa for my husbands birthday in July 2016. We couldn't have been happier with the villa. Very clean and well kept, with nice views from the terrace, what you see in the pictures is exactly how it is. In a very peaceful area, just outside a nice town and not too far from the local supermarket. The surrounding countryside is beautiful. Chris the owner couldn't have been more helpful, helped us book our hire car, had some wine and food waiting for us on arrival and looked after our luggage on our last day as we had a late flight. I have already recommended the villa to family and will be booking to come again.

Our extended family (2 couples, 14yr old, 3 yr old and baby) visited Casa Palmeira for two weeks at the end of Aug 2016. The villa was exactly as advertised and the pre, & during comms from the owner were excellent - he came to meet us on the first day to ensure we had everything we needed and offer some advice and suggestions as to the local area.

The kitchen is well equipped and the air conditioning in the lounge as well as master bedroom were a welcome feature.

The pool was lovely and the temperature at that time of year is great.

The villas location is excellent being only 5 mins from the main town, supermarkets and some lovely places to eat like Beira Serra, Ysconderijo & O'Graciano.

Would definitely stay there again and recommend.

“Perfect villa in perfect location”
Reviewed 14 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We spent two weeks at Casa Palmeira, it was the perfect villa in the perfect location with the perfect hosts.
The villa is in a quiet location, Sao Bras de Alportel is easily accessible a short distance away.
It is perfect for choosing to have quiet holiday away from the crowds and is not far from the major tourist sites if you want to visit them.
Chris is the perfect host and will give you plenty of advice, he showed us the best beaches and recommended lovely restaurants, and is only a call away if you need him.
The pool was a great bonus after being out all day, then relaxing on the terrace for a great BBQ overlooking Sao Bras de Alportel in the evening.
We cannot recommend this villa highly enough.

“A little piece of paradise”
Reviewed 23 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

person found this review helpful

We spent a wonderful week at Casa Palmeira. It is perfectly equipped for a family holiday with a pool, a pond, a built in BBQ and beautiful gardens and ample living space. It is perfectly situated in the Algarve to allow you to enjoy the peace and tranquility of the region and to provide a base to explore its beauty and culture and it's only a short drive to the bigger towns and cities of the Algarve so plenty of scope for day trips and activities for the kids. Chris the owner couldn't have been more helpful and provided maps of the area and suggested activities and answered any queries or questions we had. Casa Palmeira was a little piece of paradise for us and we can't wait to return.
