Fabulosa

  • 5 of 5

Passámos uma semana na Casa Emília que nos proporcionou tempos extraordinários. É um espaço fantástico para férias em família de todas as idades. Muito completa ao nível de infraestruturas, com acessibilidade, conforto e diversão. As fotografias correspondem ao real mas vão muito para além do que é possível ver. Faz-nos sentir na nossa própria casa onde não nos falta nada.

A região é muito bonita, perto das melhores praias algarvias e de excelentes restaurantes.

Todo o apoio dado é indescritível. Desde as orientações dadas pela Bonnie e a disponibilidade dos Srs. que tomam conta da casa. Sentimo-nos como parte integrante de uma grande família.

OBRIGADO!

A Great find. Superb villa.

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time, the villa was perfect for the six of us and we agreed it was one of our best holidays ever. The information about the area sent by Bonnie and Barry in advance (as well as loads at the villa) was very accurate and so useful; it saved us lots of time. There's plenty to do in the area and being so close to the Spanish border added the extra opportunity to eat out in Spain on occasions. The villa itself was also perfect for us in both size and in all the facilities provided. We would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone else and would love to visit it again. We had we had a very restful, enjoyable and memorable stay there.

SUPERBE VILLA, VACANCES FABULEUSES

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé 3 semaines extraordinaires dans cette superbe villa : le confort, les équipements intérieurs et extérieurs sont 100% conformes à la description qui en est faite dans l'annonce. Tout était parfait, rien ne manquait !

Nous avons été accueillis par Pat et Franck, tous 2 très sympatiques, disponibles, discrets et efficaces.

Le jardin à l'arrière de la maison est superbe de tranquilité, bien ombragé pour la sieste et les repas pris en extérieur ; ce fut un réel plaisir que de séjourner dans la Casa Emilia, nous y retournerons bien volontiers lors d'un prochain séjour dans l'Algarve.

Thank you Bonnie for letting us renting your wonderful villa ; it was a great pleasure for us to spend our 3 weeks holidays there. Thank you for your kindness and for all you done for us. And special thanks from Lucas for the pictures of his friend Ginger !!

Kindest regards.

Férias inesquecíveis!

  • 5 of 5

Estas foram das melhores férias que tivemos no Algarve! Éramos 3 casais e 5 crianças e a casa estava super bem equipada para este grupo, tudo o que poderíamos imaginar existia, inclusive uma caixa de costura, fantástico!

A urbanização era muito calma, a casa tinha excelentes áreas interiores e exteriores, o espaço de relaxamento no primeiro andar é soberbo!

A piscina sempre muito limpinha e apetecível!

Tivemos igualmente o apoio constante dos agentes locais, mas não era preciso nada, uma vez que a casa tinha tudo e tinham pensado em todos os pormenores!

Quanto a praia, frequentámos a Praia Verde que é muito, muito boa...aconselha-se igualmente uma ida ao restanrante Pézinhos na Areia!

Decisidamente queremos voltar à Casa Emília.

Bonnie, muito obrigada por tudo!

Nearest Airport : Faro at 45 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : Sao Bartolomeu at 1.5 Kilometres Nearest Golf : Castro Marim Golf Club at 3 Kilometres Nearest Train : Castro Marim at 1 Kilometres Nearest Motorway : A22/IP1Junction 17 (Monte Gordo) at 5 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : Praia Verde at 3 Kilometres Nearest Beach : Praia Verde at 3 Kilometres Car: recommended

The villa is 2km north of the coastal EN125 road at Praia Verde & 5 minutes from A22 motorway junction 17 near Spain. The beautiful, unspoilt beach of Praia Verde is close by, as are the beaches of Manta Rota, Altura and Monte Gordo, with its lively cafes, restaurants and casino. Close to lovely golf courses, scenic tourist drives and on the edge of a large nature reserve, with designated nature trails and bird watching facilities. The cosmopolitan town of Vila Real at the Spanish border on the Guadiana is a 10 minute drive and is home to the unique new sports, athletics & tennis stadium, marina, ferryboat to Spain, supermarkets and shops specialising in towels and linen. The towns of Altura & Castro Marim are 5 minutes away with supermarkets, bakers and daily indoor markets with fresh fish, meat, fruit & vegetables - a real treat. The lovely countryside view from the roof terrace, together with the distant sound of church bells chiming across the fields, almost guarantees relaxation
