We had a lovely time at this beautiful villa in July 2017. There was ample space for us (family of 5) and the pool was just perfect to cool down on a hot sunny afternoon. The villa was very well equipped and the A/C in the bedrooms came in very handy on a couple of evenings too.
The nearest beach is only a few minutes walk away but there are quite a few steps to deal with - no problem if you're relatively fit and healthy though.
We also made good use of the barbecue - the local supermarket sells charcoal and the butchery section within sells a tasty selection of meats.
It was in an ideal location as a base for is to explore nearby attractions. Looking forward to staying there again sometime!
Just had a week at casa rosfra, what a fab week had by all!! Arrived at 10pm to be welcomed with lovely welcome pack, including beers!! Very spacious clean well equipped villa all on one level, everything u need including beach towels! Pool area and bbq area very clean! We took our family including 2 grand children who didn't get out of the pool all week! cleaner, gardeners and pool men all visited a couple of times a week and a welcolm visit of alex( property manager) who gave us useful information, it took about 20 mins to walk into centre plenty of shops and nice places to eat! Will definatly return in the future.
The villa is on a very quiet cul de sac and its biggest selling point is the very private swimming pool that is not over-looked. The pool area has plenty of sun loungers and a shaded eating area, which was most welcome. There were also plenty of seating areas around the villa, so you could follow the sun all day if you wanted. But if you can tear yourself away from the villa and pool, pop down to the local beach bar, sign posted O Stop, just two minutes away by car. Be advised it's a steep walk back, particularly for older people.
We have stayed at Casa Rostra three times and have booked again this Autumn. It is a lovely villa, set in its own pretty grounds and is very near the town of Carvoeiro (loads of excellent restaurants). Last Autumn we took six friends and relatives, all of whom loved the place, the comfort and the private setting - plus of course the swimming pool and proximity to the coast. The various staff who look after the villa (housekeeper, pool man and gardener) and Alex, the property manager, were all so helpful when they called in, keeping everywhere looking good. Great atmosphere, great weather and great location - just what we want in a holiday villa.
The first nice surprise on arrival was to find Alex had provided a welcome pack including all the essentials as well as some nice cold beers in the fridge.
We stayed for 14 nights at Casa Rosfra & found the villa to be very nice although it could do with a little sprucing up. There was plenty of space for the seven of us, lots of individual seating areas around the outside of the villa and a nice swimming pool which was looked after by an attendant each week. Maid & Gardener also came in each week.
The villa is situated about 30 minutes walk from Carviero & buses seem to be few & far between so we generally walked down & taxi back for about 5 euros,
