We booked Casa da Oliveira this summer and we had fond memories of the villa, up until we returned home when we got an email from the owner saying and he could not return all our deposit.
The reasons he gave did not add up to the high percentage of deposit we lost. The fabricated lies told by so called "house manager" ( to be honest I wouldn't trust her as far as I could throw her ) were completely untrue.
When emailing the owner to confront these lies he was insulting and seemed to have rose tinted glasses when it concerned the house manager.
I have tainted memories of the villa and I would never recommend this villa to anyone.
Just back from our third stay at this lovely villa in Almancil, a part of the Algarve we have visited for the past 20 years. We travelled with 3 generations of our family and the downstairs bathroom and bedroom gave them privacy and proved easy for access.
Just 20 minutes from Faro airport, the villa is secluded (but with other properties close by) and very well appointed, with lots of extras that make it a real home from home. We never use the pool (always go out in Feb half term) but it always looks very inviting and the lovely log fire makes the living room extremely cosy on a chilly winter's evening.
Close to town and plenty of restaurants, golf courses and the beach and easy access to the A22 makes the whole of the Algarve very accessible. Definitely will stay again
