I really don't want to tell anyone how good the villa is because then it will only get busier and I might not be able to book again next year!

Anyway, First and foremost I must say there was great contact from the owners from the start which really put my mind at ease before going over. Frank (the caretaker) is a real gentleman and was always at the other end of the phone if needed.

The villa and grounds are very spacious and clean. There was plenty of clean linen and Frank came to clean the pool twice during our 8 day stay. I was pleasantly surprised that there was a working TV and DVD player that also included a varied DVD collection.

There are some golf courses near by that I didn't manage to check out but I did get to go karting which is only 5 minutes (by car) and is a fun thing to do. Id recommend you book the ticket with a ticket agent in Alvor or Praia da Rocha to save a bit of money. The Portimao GP track is also here.

Praia da Rocha (the Strip) is about 15/20 mins away, a taxi to there will cost about €25. Alvor is a little closer and has some amazing restaurants and a good clean buzz. I think the taxi was about €20.

It is a beautiful villa in a lovely quiet area. I'd say stop thinking about booking it and just do it. It was well worth it for me.

I hope to get back there next year.

“Casa wonderful!!!”

We had the pleasure of staying in casa bougainvillea for 12 amazing days where we were blessed with glorious sunshine to enhance our vacation. The villa is within easy reach, located approximately an hours drive from faro. We hired a car and would recommend this to all. The shops, beaches and nightlife are located 10-15 mins drive away.
The villa itself is located in a beautiful quiet cul-de-sac of approx 8 villas each with its own locked gates and is extremely impressive as you drive in. Inside, the layout is lovely, each room very spacious and well laid out and because of the marble tiling throughout, the temperature is kept cool and tranquil when it is very hot outside. The kitchen has all mod cons and plenty of delf cutlery and reqired utensils. It suited our needs perfectly with a young family.
Frank met us on arrival and showed us around. He returned every 3rd day to clean the pool. Outside, the pool is amazing. Clean, lovely size and perfect temperature. The barbeque and outside eating area were lovely to use and we could sit and enjoy the kids in the pool.
There was plenty of sheets and towels provided and with the washing machine and drier, we never went without. The villa was so well laid out with loads of outside space for the kids to play and family space inside, we were never on top of one another.
Alvor is a lovely town along the coast and there was plenty of places for us to visit.
I could not recommend casa bougainvillea highly enough. Dermot and claire are so lovely to deal with and have a little gem with this villa.

We have visited Alvor on two previous occasions and did not think it could get any better but the villa and its location only added to the magic.The location meant that you could enjoy peace and tranquility but you could also soon find a more livelier setting should you wish.

.The facilities were spot on and Frank was there to meet and greet us even though a change in the flight details meant he had to wait.He was a superb host making sure we had everything we needed for our stay...nothing was too much trouble. The owners had arranged for milk and water to be available on our arrival and that was much appreciated after several hours travel.

A hire car made our trip even better but you could rely on taxi's if you wished. I wish to thank Dermot and Claire for making our stay so memorable as it clearly matters to them that people do enjoy their holiday and the villa was testimony to that.
