“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

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.

Casa Grande was the best villa we have stayed at in the Algarve,it was spacious,very well equiped,in an ideal rural location but within easy reach for shops and fantastic beaches.The large outside eating area and bar were brilliant as was the pool and jacuzzi.

“Best Algarve villa we have stayed in”
Reviewed 16 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

people found this review helpful

This is an exceptionally beautiful villa in a peaceful location with everything you need for a relaxing holiday. We only ever left the villa to get food supplies and visit the fish market. The outdoor kitchen and BBQ area made eating 'at home' a pleasure , in fact, we usually eat out every night on our holidays but on this trip we ate out only once and had many fun nights barbecuing for hours on end and enjoying the beer on tap! . The large pool was beautiful and clean and we chose to have it heated making it even more perfect. We did not have young children in our party but if you do, the villa is very well equipped with stair gates, pool fence , play area and many pool toys and even a range of different bikes including helmets. Howard was a pleasure to meet and he dealt with any requests quickly. He kindly took over and arranged the taxi for members of our party whose flight arrival was delayed until late at night . We can't wait to return and will now only ever use the VillaView properties as the quality of their villas are of a very high standard and the service received was amazing
