Like so many previous reviews of this villa it is an excellent place for all ages, as there's something for everyone. Located about half an hour or so west of Faro the villa is situated in quiet countryside surrounded by vine fields. The facilities are plentiful and everything is in immaculate order, Howard sees to that! The outside eating area with music system and bar (beer on tap) next to the pool are great for parties. The kids loved the trampoline and the bikes. You will not be disappointed if you rent this villa, I can assure you, and the service provided by Howard's team are first rate. Thoroughly recommended, don't waste your time looking elsewhere, its all here and more! The only thing you will feel sorry for is leaving it to go home!

“All you could want in a holiday home”
Reviewed 14 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Howard the owner has a beautiful villa with all the amenities you could wish for. The outside eating area is perfect with 2 barbecues cooker dishwasher fridge etc etc. truly excellent as is the large pool which you will want to stay in until you want a jacuzzi. Nothing is too much trouble for Howard and his cleaning team are faultless. I had a brilliant week.

“Fantastic Stay for the third year running”
Reviewed 13 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Once again we had a fantastic stay at Casa Grande, which is the third year running we have been here, and we are booked in again for 2014. Howard and his team provide so much more than just an amazing villa, with so much local knowledge and his willingness to help from arranging delivery of the suckling pig (recommended) to where to eat and the best places to visit such as the local fish market, the best beaches and things for the children to do. The villa is so well equipped, with an abundance of "extras" you don't find in so many rental villas. From large flat screen TV's, gaming for the children, movies via Sky and DVD's, REALLY GOOD WiFi (even outside) air conditioning even in the BBQ area outside (and of course the large flat screen TV), music from the Sonos system pumped around the house, BBQ and even music around the garden and pool, plus everything you need in the kitchen, including two fantastic BBQ's (one gas and one charcoal) The pictures just don't do it justice, so VERY highly recommended.

“Fantastic Villa for Friends and Families”
Reviewed 12 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

This was our third visit and we have booked for next year. Everything you could need for a "friends" holiday is here with great help from Howard. We had some great dinners out and got a Chef in one night who was excellent. From two BBQ's, bikes, heated pool, sound system and peace and quiet it cannot be faulted

“Couldnt have asked for more.....”

We had a week in the Villa with friends, two of which had stayed there many times before but it was the first time for us. There were ten of us and we weren't at all cramped. It is one of the nicest villas we have stayed in. There was everything you could possibly wish for, and more. Howard was more than accommodating in our requests and questions and taxi bookings for us! Nothing was too much trouble.

We could not recommend this highly enough. Thank you.
