“Fantastic villa in a great location!”

6 of us (3 couples) plus a 9 month old baby stayed at Casa Oleander towards the end of the summer last year (mid Sep 13).

The villa has everything that you could need for a very comfortable stay - a selection of toys/inflatables for use in the pool, books and games, DVDs, a Whitney Houston CD!. Best of all, there are 4 sets of golf clubs which meant that we didn't have to pay £££ to fly our own clubs over. The first tee/Clubhouse at the Gramacho course is a 2 min walk away and we were regulars in the week we stayed. They serve good food in the clubhouse but with 2 big supermarkets nearby (and a mini-mart at the complex entrance) we had most of our meals at the villa using the fantastic BBQ.

There is plenty of room at the villa and with the master bedroom being on the first floor, it meant that the little one could sleep (in the cot provided) without being disturbed by the noisy adults below!

Its a short drive into Carvoeiro from the villa but plenty of places to park a car - we left ours in the town and got taxis (very cheap) home when we'd been out.

One of the nice touches at the villa was the folder of information about the local area/activities available - we used that to help bribe the ladies with a spa day while the gents played golf.

We can't wait to go back!

“Excellent villa for relaxing family holiday”
Reviewed 22 January 2014 for a stay in August 2013

Attractive villa with beautiful garden in peaceful location on a well laid-out golf resort. We didn't use the golf course but enjoyed the views and found the clubhouse restaurant and resort supermarket very useful. The resort security staff are very obliging and give a good sense of security. The villa is very well maintained and equipped to a high standard. It also felt spacious and airy even in the heat of August.

A car is essential to fully enjoy the area but many beaches, interesting places to visit and restaurants are within easy driving distance. We found the local area much friendlier and more interesting than some of the busier and larger resorts closer to Faro. The drive to and from Faro Airport is straightforward and the owner gives good instructions.

We had a great holiday here and hope to return.

The décor was outstanding. Clean and comfortable. You felt pampered and relaxed all at the same time. Any amenity you needed was available. Even though you needed a vehicle, the proximity of things to do was amazing. We hope to visit again someday.

“A luxury villa. A home from home with fantastic facilities”

Travelling with children can be stressful enough but at Casa Oleander everything was provided which meant we didn't have to lug all the usual paraphernalia. The villa is in a great settling with a large private pool with graduating steps which was great for the little ones and a large garden which they could safely play in and a huge DVD selection for when they had had enough fun in the sun. Having some downstairs bedrooms was a bonus too as meant no trailing up and down stairs with the kids. The beach was only 5mins drive as was the water park and the town, which had numerous places to eat and all where really child friendly. The villa is set on a championship golf course and many other courses are within an easy drive. All in all a fab holiday, highly recommended!

“Fantastic Stay in Portugal”

My first visit to Portugal with my wife and children, and Casa Oleander was the perfect place to stay. The villa is beautiful, clean and welcoming. It is set on a beautiful peaceful golf course and the villa is well equipped with everything needed for a fantastic stay. It is a great base to explore the gorgeous Algarve. I would highly recommend this accommodation and with the added bonus of a swimming pool - it is a perfect place for all the family.
