“Thoroughly Excellent Villa”
Reviewed 31 August 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We are a group of semi-mature golfers who have high standards when it comes to accommodation. We have returned to Casal de Santa Maria for several years now and are consistently delighted with the standard of the villa and the service provided by Ralph and Ana. The villa is supremely located close to the beautiful town and beach and is perfect for large groups of friends and/or family. The region is famous for its golf courses and the value and hospitality of the Portuguese is second to none. I cannot recommend this enough.

“A great place. Especially for a large group”
Reviewed 29 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Casal de Santa Maria.
Ralph made the whole process, from first contact to final goodbye, a smooth, professional & friendly one. The villa accommodated our group with ease. Everyone had their own space but the communal areas worked in allowing us the room to come together.
It is worth listening to Ralph on arrival as he imparts a wealth of local knowledge and experience. Many thanks

“This is an excellent villa, spotlessly clean, fully equipped and perfectly located”
Reviewed 14 July 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We are a group of 6 golfers with pretty high standards when it comes to finding great quality accommodation at an affordable price.
time and again we have returned to this villa. it is an excellent place to stay. It has great facilities, it is kept spotlessly clean and very well equipped for families or groups of friends. The location is terrific, no more than a 5 minute walk from the gorgeous town of Praia das Macas. Ralph is always on hand with tips and help when required. We would highly recommend you stay here.

“Couldn't ask for anything more!”
Reviewed 6 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We booked the villa for my mother in law's birthday, there were 8 adults and 2 children, the house was plenty big enough and had more than enough for the children to do.

We had a pram so being only 5 mins from the beach was a godsend! Plus the added benifit of no moaning from the kids for walking so far .

Would definately recommend this house to anyone, everyone was very helpful when booking and couldn't ask for any more information on the house and the surrounding area.

All in all we had an amazing holiday, thankyou so much.

“Perfection in Portugal”
Reviewed 6 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We came across this house while searching for a honeymoon destination. We hadn’t given Portugal too much thought, but this property looked spectacular and we decided to book it. We'd told ourselves, if the house turned out to be only half as wonderful as it looked in the photos, it would still be perfect. We can tell you the photos don’t even do it justice. This house truly is a piece of paradise. Since it sleeps 12, we (only two of us) found it more than enough house to enjoy our early days of holy matrimony. If we HAD to give a downside, it would be, the weather this time of year (first week of June) can still be a bit chilly. Therefore, getting in the un-heated pool was more like taking a polar plunge than a refreshing summer dip, but we didn’t care one bit. The views and outdoor space more than made up for not being able to fully enjoy the pool. And the beach was a short walk away (as described on the listing) so we found ourselves taking it all in and enjoying every minute of our stay in this picturesque town. Ralph and Anna are terrific hosts too. Ralph gave us local restaurant recommendations and even made suggestions of what to order at a couple of the places – they all were absolutely delicious. When we decided to rent bikes instead of a car, Ralph helped us with it. When we wanted to go to Lisbon for the day, Ralph gave us the name of a wonderful taxi driver – Luis. To say the entire experience was beyond our expectations would be an understatement. Rent this villa / house if you are looking for perfection in Portugal!
