Casa Andorinha is a lovely villa, much bigger than the photos make out, in a beautiful location, and is ideal for exploring the Algarve. We've had the most enjoyable and relaxing holiday and would all be keen to return. Fantastic place to stay. Felt welcome immediately and very home from home. Great base to visit much of Portugal.
Thankyou, without doubt the nicest villa we have ever stayed in. Beautiful gardens and pool. The villa is beautifully decorated and provides all the comforts of home with the added bonus of great weather and spectacular views.
Two whole weeks of relaxation - Bliss
Having stayed in several villas, this is by far the best - everything it says on the tin and more. Privacy, tranquility, spacious with fantastic location. A warm welcome and generous welcome pack that was second to none. This is a beautiful villa with extremely friendly owners. The only bad point - sadly having to leave.
About the Owner
We are a family with two teenage children and have owned Casa Andorinha for 9 years. It is very much a family home, with warmth and comfort and probably has better quality furnishings and facilities than a standard 'holiday home'. Over the years we have taken great pleasure in sharing our villa with friends, family and guests (many of whom we can now add to our list of 'friends') and feel that the position and atmosphere of the villa has catered for all ages and enabled everyone to have truly memorable holidays here in the Algarve.

Year property purchased: 2003
Why this location?
We had been visiting parents in this location for many years and loved the fact that it wasn´t in the middle of the chaotic tourist areas and a further bonus being that we aren't faced with the same expensive tourist prices when it comes to eating and drinking out. When we started looking at buying our own property, we fell in love with Casa Andorinha immediately. It is in a peaceful and private location, and is a lovely place to just relax and sunbathe. The children have had plenty of space to run around and make noise without us worrying about disturbing other people, yet the coast and it´s beautiful beaches and touristic side of the Algarve is only 20 minutes drive away. Local towns are so close and convenient and everything you could need is available there.
What are the unique benefits of the property?
The peace and privacy are fantastic. The convenience to local towns is great and there are many local restaurants selling good food but a lot cheaper than the coastal towns. There is lots to see and do - we particularly enjoy attending the local riding school and quad biking centre which has allowed us to explore the hills and countryside (the children love it also), nipping to the beach for an afternoon or spending a day in one of the waterparks, then retreating home for a shower before going out to one of our local restaurants. Everyone welcomes children at night which is a real bonus.
