“Pleasant Villa in a quiet area”
Reviewed 24 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Our party consisted of 4 adults and 3 children under 6 and the Villa had everything you could ask for amenity wise with the SKY TV (with Kids channels) being a godsend for the extremely Hot afternoons when it was better to keep the small ones inside, although the lack of Air con was the only down side we felt, as the roof fans in the lounge and dining room rattled so much they appeared to be falling off and the stand up fans in each bedroom only served to push the hot air around and opening windows only let the mosquitos in.
The pool was perfect for the small ones, as at any time they were always within reach of an adult, given the shallow end was not the largest or shallowest.
The cot unfortunately was in the upstairs bedroom and is a heavy wooden one, so was not practical for us, as it could not be moved, but Patricia the villa manager very quickly sorted out a travel cot for us, which was perfect.
Maria the cleaner was super and to be honest did more than i believe she was supposed to do and always had a smile and a word for everyone.
As for the walk to town, it is between 20 and 25 mins, dependent on the route taken, but the last part is quite steep whichever you take and a taxi back is a better option (5 to 8 Euro based on taxi size), although to avoid this there is always Monte Carvoeiro with a few bars and restaurants on the top, before the hill for a bite to eat or drink on the way down to town, or back.
Overall the whole party enjoyed our stay, so thanks to all at Casa Branco Grande.

“Nice but not perfect”
Reviewed 12 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

While the bathrooms and kitchen have been modernised to a high standard, the quality of the beds/linen were left a lot to be desired.We were surprised that there wasn't any cleaning products or dish cloth ,you also need to take tea towels as well.There is a very friendly maid who comes twice a week.You really need a car as its 25-30 minute walk , its not too bad going to town but have hills to climb on your return , a taxi will cost 5e.
We would like say we appreciated the welcome pack as it was better than some we had previously paid for, as there is only one very smal lshop close by.

“Beautiful, larger than average Villa”
Reviewed 28 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

My family really enjoyed our 2 week stay at Casa Barranco Grande. The bedrooms and bathrooms were larger than we had expected and we all enjoyed the pool and the garden.
We really liked the roof terrace in the evening sun with a glass of something cool.
Overall we were very impressed with the Villa and Carvoiero and especially Maria the maid who was very sweet.
