We loved Casa Miramar. Great location with a beautiful beach only a few minutes walk away (down quite a few steps). There are several other great beaches within a few minutes drive. There are also several good restaurants nearby - one on site and a handful within a 20 minute walk or short drive.
The villa is well maintained and well equipped with everything you could possibly need in the recently refurbished kitchen.
The pool and terrace area has views onto the garden and the sea. There is a gate at the bottom of the garden for direct access to the cliff top walking trails. Well worth exploring.
We particularly enjoyed putting the kids to bed(!) then heading up onto the roof terrace to enjoy the sunset whilst waiting for the bbq to get up to temperature!
This was the best stay in years. The very friendly owner accommodated all our requests and sent an extensive how to and tips beforehand so we knew exactly what to expect. Local staff is great, house was very clean and well maintained. And had everything we needed, it was like staying in a friend's house, nothing compared to the usual minimal holiday homes. Comfy beds, great terrace and pool and the secluded roof terrace (what a view!) made the house ideal, even with 6 people. Kids loved the wifi and many TV channels. And that kitchen! better than at home!. Luxury Italian restaurant on premise, also does takeaway (and Pizza!) Lots of other places nearby, a car is almost a necessity. The location is quiet even though the season had started.
if you love the algarve, this is the best location you can choose. its the most beautiful house - very lovely - and you have a terrific view of the sea because the house is having a roof terrace - thank you herman & co for sharing this amazing place with us!
The villa was superbly clean and fresh. Nice touch this time were the bath robes in the main bedroom - our girls pinched them on arrival ... possibility to have in all rooms in future? Nothing better than watching the sun rise in a bathrobe with a cuppa and again watching it set in the same attire with a glass of wine from the roof terrace.
Another fantastic holiday at this stunning villa.
Only tiny (really tiny) downside was that the website address is on the garden gate hence lots of passers by taking photos. We thought it was a little intrusive as we were more than happy just chilling by the pool post A Levels!! Herman ... we need to keep this villa a secret ...
We will be back.
This little villa was perfect for our stay in the Algarve. The views of the ocean are amazing. We were walking distance to a couple of beaches including Benagil beach. Lots of hiking trails right out of the back gate. Everything worked fine and we had no problems. There is a washer/dryer and wifi. Supermarkets are close by. We had a car and if you do not have a car it may be difficult to get around. Would gladly stay here again!
