“A big house in the sun”
Reviewed 4 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015
person found this review helpful

Just returned from a 2 week trip at the end of July.

Communication between owner Kieran and manager Natalia was excellent, we requested several things for our stay and all were waiting when we arrived at A Casa De Sol, including beach towels, travel cot and lots of baby linen-thank you!

The house was very well presented, with all the essentials, each room having it's own bathroom was good, set in a nice quiet area and only a short bus/taxi ride away from the strip, supermarket and old town.

The pool was good, right at the bottom of our garden-just remember to rinse your swimwear as otherwise it turns green!

The loungers in the garden are ready to be replaced-this is hardly surprising as there is a lot of sunshine to enjoy!

The garden table and chairs beneath the pergola were lovely in the evenings for alfresco dining, just short of an outside light so we could have stayed out longer. A BBQ was available, although slightly on the small side when cooking for 8 hungry ones! The neighbouring properties have lovely stone built ones, maybe a future investment for the owner!

Making toast in a morning for eight people took forever, we used the 2 slice toaster and the grill-maybe a bigger toaster would make it quicker!

The fridge was next to the oven, which unfortunately meant some of our food went off as the oven heats the fridge up!

These are only niggles and in no way spoiled what was a very enjoyable two weeks with friends-we would highly recommend this house.

We did use the facilities of the neighbouring hotels when we needed a change of scenery, both were good.

The path down to the beach takes about 10 minutes, not recommended with a pram or those with walking difficulties, a bit hilly and some steps.

“Fantastic villa, great location!”
Reviewed 24 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Just came back from our holiday in Casa del Sol and everything was just perfect. The place is big enough for groups of 7, 8 people, there is a very large terrace and a lovely pool. Everything is modern and the place is very clean and well equiped. The location is ideal - Santa Eulalia beach, old town and the strip nearby. We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend this villa to anyone!

“Comfortable, sophisticated, a great holiday villa!”
Reviewed 29 June 2014 for a stay in April 2014

I stayed at A Casa Del Sol with a group of girlfriends in April and we all loved our stay at the villa. Comfortable and sophisticated, the villa offered everything we needed. We were lucky to have the outside shared pool and sun loungers to ourselves as our stay was a little of season and made the most of the space available. Unfortunately the pool was extremely cold and a few tiles missing from the floor made the pool less inviting. The bedrooms were spacious and the back double room has a great view of the pool, with a balcony. The villa is situated about 15 mins walk from the strip but we needed a taxi to get to the old town, not far and not expensive. I thoroughly recommend A Casa Del Sol for a group of friends or family and Kieran was very helpful with our enquiries.

“Lovely spacious villa”
Reviewed 16 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We wanted to stay in the central algarve for 2/3 days having been in the west for a while. The villa was lovely and clean, spacious and room for the eight of us travelling. It was handy girl the shops and only minutes from Oura and Albufeira by car. The pool was small and cold but enough for a cool off. The beaches in the area are lovely and the villa us in an ideal place for the beach and restaurants. This is a good villa for both smaller or larger groups. The owner was very helpful and always responded immediately when contacted.

“Perfect girls getaway.”
Reviewed 5 September 2013 for a stay in May 2013
person found this review helpful

We had a fab long weekend here .Very spacious and the en-suite double bedrooms gave a luxury hotel feel for half the price . We ate out mostly but there was a lovely kitchen and dining room .Albufeira is lovely and the town beach is huge.Eating out was cheap and the fish was always good quality and value . We found it easy to get around and walked to most places in the daytime . At night we got a taxi ,usually a neighbour who also did our airport transfers, so very easy and relaxed .
