“Fabulous Holiday”
Reviewed 3 September 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Just returned from a wonderful holiday at Casa da Vista Magica. A beautiful villa with great views down to the coast. Fantastic gardens and pool, very spacious accommodation with a huge games room.

“Everything you need and more”
Reviewed 1 October 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We spent 10 days at "Casa da Vista Magica" in August. Our group consisted of two adults and five children ranging from 9 to 16. On arrival we could not believe how lucky we were to have found such a spacious and well equipped villa. Electric gates on the drive give added security and the villa is spread over three levels. We found a welcome pack of lovely goodies on arrival and it was most appreciated.

All four bedrooms are en suite, so plenty of privacy. The kitchen is a good size and contains all you need to cater for your group. The living area (lounge/diner) was spacious and comfortable if you just want to avoid the sun and lounge indoors or watch a film. The balcony outside the lounge is lovely and has a huge patio table. We ate most of our meals and breakfast out here just taking in the view or watching the sunset.

The swimming pool was in constant use, with plenty of sun loungers to laze on. The pool is not too deep and therefore, perfect for the younger children. There is a sheltered barbecue area that can seat a number of people, although we never actually got around to starting the barbeque. The gardens are beautiful with lemon trees, olives, almond trees and fig trees. So much space to just enjoy or for the kids to run around

A big plus is the magnificent games room and it’s bar area. There is a full size snooker table, dart board, and ping pong table, along with a cd player with a reasonable collection of music. If you are a reader, then the book shelves are stacked with books for all tastes. There are also a number of board games.

Although the location of the Villa is set in peaceful and relaxing hillside, I would suggest that a car is essential. The Algarve itself is a great place. The villa is about a 20 minute drive from Faro airport, 5 minutes from Loule, 20 minutes from Villamoura, 30 minutes from Albufeira, The town of Loule is convenient for shopping and there is a good supermarket within a 10 minute drive or so. Saturday morning is a good day to wonder down and around in Loule checking out the markets.

In summary, the villa is perfect for those wanting a quiet location and the house is big enough to accommodate everyone. If the noise of laughter and competition becomes too much from the pool or the games room, then there are plenty areas to hide and have some down time. If I have to mention anything negative, it would only be the weak Wi-Fi signal. Some other guests mentioned the need of a little updating, but I think it was fine.

Andrew was a pleasure to deal with when making the booking and everything was seamless, including departure, we did not have to rush as we had a late flight home. I would have no hesitation on recommending this villa.

“A wonderful stay in a fantastic villa”

We booked this villa with two families – my wife and two kids and I– and my sister and her partner and three children. We had an absolutely tremendous time. It is a house that makes you feel at home – that is, home if you've won the lottery! The swimming pool was in constant use, with plenty of sun loungers in the area beside. The pool isn't so deep that you worry about the kids getting into trouble. The barbecue area beside that got plenty of use (and I'd advise fish lovers to pick up fresh fish to bbq from the indoor market at Loule– the freshest sardines I've ever eaten).

The house has plenty of other amenities. Lovely gardens with lemon trees, olives, almond trees and fig trees. We made lots of fresh lemonade! If you had enough of the sun the house has sky tv with sports and movies (was able to catch the Ashes and premier league). Downstairs there is a bar area with full size snooker table, dart board, and ping pong table. There is a cd player with a reasonable collection of music there, and book shelves stacked with books for all tastes. I brought several books with me, but ended up reading from the books already there. There are also board games which the kids (and adults) enjoyed.
One tiny gripe in amenities is that the wifi isn't the strongest, and some of us did end up getting extra 4g packages instead of relying on the wifi. This, however, is a very small complaint.

At mealtime there is a huge outdoor table on the 1st floor balcony where we regularly ate together.

Whilst we enjoyed each other's company, the house is big enough for you to take yourself off and have a bit of quiet time to yourself, whether in the garden, one of the balconies, or in the rooms were air conditioning is available. On our day of departure, when we had an afternoon flight, the owner didn't require us to rush off in the morning, and we were permitted to stay as long as we needed. We would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this villa, and indeed, are planning to return next year!

This place was one of the best places I could have selected for a group holiday, the location the amenities and service was more than we could have asked for.

The size of the house blew us away and the location was perfect to travel to the main cities and the supermakerts were all close by and provided everything we needed.

The superlatives speak for itself, speaking about it will not do it enough justice just go enjoy the scenery and tranquil of the location.

We will be back for sure as we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and we left feeling refreshed.

Liked best: The view from the house was amazing, waking up to the view every morning was refreshing
Liked least: I'd say the hills, coming ino the property is easy but leaving the area with the hills can be a challenge in a small car
