Superbe maison sur les hauteurs de Loulé.
Magnifique maison, très calme et confortable, très bien située pour une découverte de l'Algarve. Les chambres sont spacieuses, la cuisine bien équipée et les salles de bains propres et fonctionnelles. Le jardin est bien entretenu, et nous avons vraiment profité de la grande piscine en cette fin septembre .
Nous avons cependant quelques remarques à faire aux propriétaires afin d’améliorer l’accueil de leurs futurs occupants. Nous avons regretté que les 2 bouteilles de gaz du barbecue soient vides, qu’il n’y avait que 2 pastilles pour le lave vaisselle, et que les sacs poubelles ne soient pas appropriés à la dimension des bacs .
Ajoutons enfin que les propriétaires sont anglais, la télévision ne diffuse donc que des programmes en anglais, et que le règlement se fait en £. Mais quoi de plus normal pour des Anglais, venant chercher notre soleil, mais qui refusent notre standard Européen.
Thank you for your review.
The majority of our customers (99%) are British and TV is not their priority. But thank you.
We do take payment in euros, just ask.
Beautiful house in idyllic setting
The only downside to the property is the access road - a bush or cactus took a bite of my hire car! The house is very well equipped and comfortable - the unexpected hot weather at the end of September made us grateful for the air con in the bedrooms and sitting room.
Minor niggles included a fairly restricted choice of UK TV channels- given the size of the dish I was surprised not to find Freeview. The wifi is good but capped so download your movies before you travel - there's a DVD player and a VHS cassette player (not see one of those for some time)!.
Great kitchen with large fridge and smaller fridge for extra liquids. Patio has gas barbecue.
Stewart, so glad you enjoyed your stay. The road is a little windy in places but drive slow and steady and no trees jump out.
TV is not a priority for us or indeed for a lot of our guests. Will look into improving selection in future.
Lovely Peaceful Villa - Perfect For Families
My wife and I rented this villa last year as a couple and thought how lovely it would be for a family holiday. We booked it immediately on our return to the UK in 2016 and recently returned from a family holiday at the villa, which included three little boys. The boys spent most of the week in the pool which they fell in love with. There is so much space here that we arranged games and competitions with them, which included use of the large chess board in the garden and boules, in the boules pit. As the week progressed it got hotter and hotter and an this was when we became so grateful for the villas air conditioning system, which was highly effective and remarkably quiet. We enjoyed th barbecue most nights, which again was easy and very efficient to use. The bedrooms and washroom facilities were perfect for our needs there is nothing you could want, which is not provided in the fully fitted kitchen. This villa is within easy travelling distance from Faro Airport, and there are perfect supermarkets to cater for all your needs nearby. We shall definitely be returning.
It was lovely to meet you and your family Dereck. The boys were clearly excited to be there.
So glad you all had such a great holiday.
Look forward to welcoming you back in the future

Amazing villa with large pool
We had a fantastic time here. The area is perfect if your looking for a quite holiday. We and our three boys loved the large private garden and pool. 10 min drive to Loule where there is lots of restaurants and supermarkets. The beaches are a short drive away. Would love to go back some day.
We loved it too.
Having recently returned from a very enjoyable 3 weeks stay at Casa D'Arroba, we only have positive comments to make. The villa is spacious, comfortable and well equipped. Beds are large and comfortable with good quality bedding, beautiful white towels, even pool towels (not often supplied). The villa sits on top of a hill in the middle of well tended gardens. With only 2 neighbours it might sound isolated, but no - peaceful with no traffic noise only birdsong - but a couple of minutes drive on a made up road and you are on the main road (5 min Loule and 10/15 min Sao Bras).
The best thing of all is the amazing pool (being springtime we had it heated). Our grown up daughter joined us for a time, she could have stayed in the pool all day every day.
Helena (housekeeper), Frazer (poolman) and Valentyn (gardner) all were very helpful, friendly and courteous, could not ask for better.
The best recommendation we can give is, we have already booked our 3 week Autumn holiday at Casa D'Arroba.

Else-Marie, thank you for your kind comments.
We are so glad you enjoyed your time at our villa.
Look forward to welcoming you back in November
We Loved It And Followed The Couple Who Did Not!
I suppose you review a villa comparing it to what you have had before and hence you may mark higher or lower accordingly. We have to say we loved this villa. Tarmacadam road leading to it (other villas have always been rough dusty farm tracks), a place to park ones car in the shade so it is cooler when entering it on a hot day, space and quietness. We found that we preferred the second bedroom to the master bedroom because of the colour scheme and chose that room for our week, but all three bedrooms were of a high quality with good beds ( on some villas we have stayed in the beds were simply wooden frames with a chip board base or indeed falling apart) we slept well here. It was great to have the facility of air conditioning but we felt we didn't need it and enjoyed being able to sleep with the cool night air coming in through the windows which you can leave open because of the anti-insect mesh fitted. We found no problem with the bedding (Marks & Spencer's) and were very happy with the cleanliness throughout. We loved the balconies and the views from up there. The kitchen was extremely well stocked with every utensil you could possibly need and the cooker even came with a griddle. I agree that the TV was a little small but we don't go out to Portugal to watch TV. We prefer to be outside on the balcony until midnight, sipping wine in the warm night air and listening to music. TV we can do at home. The wifi was excellent and easy to use and the living room was bright and comfortable. We went as a couple so of course there were ample sun beds, chairs, and parasols, and with the lounger cushions (stored in the downstairs bedroom cupboard) we didn't fine anything amiss with regards to the outside furniture. Yes, the parasols were a little faded but they did the job and kept us cool. The pool was excellent and we paid the extra to have it heated. Luxury! I have never seen my wife get into a pool so quick, or to stay in a pool for so long. The surrounding garden (with grass) was very beautiful and a pleasure to be amongst. We know the area well so I will say nothing about that, however, although we are going back to our regular villa in Moncarapacho in August (booked a long time ago) we have already taken steps to return here again next year with some additional family members. They will love it, as we did.
So very glad you enjoyed your stay, look forward to welcoming you back next August
