“Lovely family holiday”

We have returned from a 10 day visit from Casa Dos Avos and have to say it was fantastic. From picking up the keys to handing them back I have only praise for the villa and surrounding area. The villa is family friendly from a lockable front gate with enclosed safe grounds to a gated pool area. Our two daughters of 16 months and 2 ½ loved exploring the grounds. Our eldest learnt to swim and we had some lovely family time in the pool. The pictures really don’t give the villa justice with a large kitchen, bedrooms and large area upstairs for relaxing. This became our daughter’s area in the evening to watch some pepper pig while we sat on the balcony area catching some evening sun. I must recommend going a short visit to Olhao to the fish and fruit market. There are some nice restaurants, shops and supermarkets. You can also take a boat trip to the local beached islands for the day which are beautiful. In the villa there is a basket full of brochures and information about the surrounding area. This was really useful in planning our days from the zoo which was amazing, historical areas, restaurants and local events. I really could write pages and pages about our stay but I suggest you book and experience it for yourself.

“Great holiday location”
Reviewed 3 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

person found this review helpful

We stayed at Casa dos Avos for two weeks in August. It has a very convenient location, near to Faro airport and reasonably close to beaches, but in the middle of the countryside, so is not crowded at all. It is out of the smart (expensive) Algarve tourist areas so we could go out for meals at local restaurants for a reasonable price. We found two good restaurants within 5 minutes drive from the villa.
The villa has a great pool, quite large enough for the number of people that can stay at the villa, and a nice eating area next to the pool with a BBQ. It was so hot we spent most of our time outside, but there is plenty of space in the villa if required.
All in all, a good value holiday and lovely place to stay

“A really pleasent stay!”
Reviewed 3 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We just returned from 9 days at Casa dos Avos and there is no doubt about us going back.

The villa is on a beautiful countryside and with a car there is plenty of nice places to go. I guess Tavira ended up as our favourite.

With two kids (age 6 and 10) the pool was of course a highlight and it was used several times every day. We also used the outside grill a lot preparing our own food in the evenings.

The villa has everyting you need and Maria/Isabell were quick and helpful when we had any questions.

A perfect place for family vacation.

Thanx a lot!

“Fantastic villa and fab pool!!”
Reviewed 17 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

My husband and I stayed with our 9 month old son and we will definitely be going back again!! The villa is perfect for families and the washing machine came in very handy with the baby! There is a great terrace area that is shaded and gated off from the pool with a lovely table to eat at! And the pool its self is fantastic!! Not too cold and big enough for a good swim to cool off! The air con is a definite bonus as well! Plenty of facilities available for a baby to such as highchair and cot! The surrounding area is beautiful with easy access from the airport (a 30min drive) and other lovely towns like loulé! Restaurante o cerro is somewhere to definitely eat at, the food is delicious and the owner very friendly!! All in all a fantastic holiday and we would not hesitate to return! Thanks

“Lovely relaxing break”

We have just returned from a 6 night holiday in the Casa dos Avos and we had a great time. The villa was even better than we expected despite the very positive reviews already on Trip Advisor.
Baby chair and cot all provided, set up and waiting for us on arrival.
The pool was great and our young son loved spending time in the water and also exploring all the plants and trees on the property.
AC was great when required.
Sat TV was as expected - plenty of French and German channels.
We used the Kanguru internet and found the best reception was in the front of the property or on the roof terrace.

Helena and Isabel were very helpful and available for any queries.

Only negatives would be:
The DVD player player did not work but we were not expecting to use it.
The dishwasher did not work but again we did not anticipate using it as there was only a small number of us.
