About the property

Popular, Luxury 3 bedroomed Villa, with Spectacular Views over the Goldra Valley

Casa Bolota is a Very Popular, Luxury, 3 bedroomed villa with a gorgeous Private Pool and lovely landscaped gardens, sitting in a quiet countryside location with Breathtaking Views across the Goldra Valley. The villa although in a wonderful, tranquil location, is well situated and just a short distance from the many tourist attractions in the area

Its very convenient location, with Faro airport only 15/20 minutes away, led TV Presenter Nicki Chapman to call the villa 'the 20 minute villa' when it was featured on Escape to the Continent as 'The Mystery House'. The villa was described in the programme as "Wow, this is lovely, so lovely. It really is very, very nice, with its beautiful landscaped grounds, fabulous pool, breathtaking views, a house with a presence, in a quiet idyllic setting, very impressive." Our many returning guests feel the same way and enjoy this special luxury 'home from home'. Our 5* reviews say it all! Why not visit our website and see what you think, go to www.casabolota.com.

Although a modern villa, it has been built in a traditional style giving it lots of character. On the ground floor there is a spacious lounge/dining area with 3 sets of French doors, with views out to the beautiful gardens and terraces. There are 2 bedrooms on this floor, a double and a king size, a family bathroom, plus an additional cloakroom. The villa has a modern well equipped kitchen with a dishwasher and an American fridge freezer with drinks cooler and ice maker. There is also a useful separate utility room with washing machine, tumble dryer, iron and ironing board. When its time to retreat from the sun there is a small games room on this floor, with TV, blue ray player (DVD's provided to suit all ages), a Wii console with some sports games, Karaoke and Zumba, an exercise bike to keep you fit and plenty of board games for all the family to enjoy. The games room has a sofa bed for extra flexibility.

The large Master bedroom is on the 1st floor and has its own private staircase, an en-suite bathroom and large private balcony with spectacular views.

Outside there is a Private Pool with yet more stunning views, comfortable sunbeds, cooler box tables, to keep your drinks nice and refreshing and umbrellas to provide that much needed shade. The gardens are filled with mature shrubs and flowers, palm trees, olive trees and many fruit trees such as orange, lemon, clementine, peach, plum, avocado, pear, grapefruit, pomegranate etc. There are plenty of places to relax and enjoy the Algarve sun, including a hammock! It has all those little touches to make your holiday memorable and as relaxing as possible. For those feeling a little more energetic there is an outdoor table tennis table.

For al fresco dining there is a large traditional barbecue and two separate dining areas provided, one on the rear terrace off the lounge and one around the pool area. Children are catered for with 2 travel cots and 2 high chairs plus a stair gate provided and the pool area is fenced off. We try our best to cater for all your holiday needs, to make your stay as relaxing as possible Why not make it your holiday destination this Summer?

Why Mrs Julie Norman chose Goldra de Cima

We had a very lengthy search looking for our holiday home in the Algarve. We wanted somewhere that was private, in a tranquil and relaxing setting, but also convenient for the tourist attractions and hot spots of the Algarve. We found that perfect combination in Casa Bolota. As soon as the electric gates opened and the stunning gardens and beautiful villa were revealed we knew we'd found our 'home in the sun'.

What makes this villa unique

This stylish villas unique benefits are that it is situated in a lovely, tranquil, yet convenient location with magnificant views, on the fringe of the golden triangle. Although we like to be close to amenities, good beaches etc, we also like to relax when we are on holiday, away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist spots. Our holiday home fits the bill perfectly for us. Its beautiful surroundings, which offers privacy and tranquility with breathtaking views, coupled with its convenient location and fantastic facilities, means it's entirely your choice whether you want to simply relax or have a more energetic time. If it's relaxation you want then you can choose from the gorgeous pool with it's amazing views, the large balcony with equally glorious views or the various seating areas/dining areas around the property offering shade and sun, including a hammock, if you fancy a snooze. You can enjoy breakfast on the balcony, lunch up by the pool, evening BBQ on the terrace, it's your choice. You may prefer to wander around the landscaped gardens with its beautiful, mature shrubs and trees including palm trees, olive trees and numerous fruit trees. Possibly picking some fruit, if ready, along the way. However if you want to be more energetic or for family fun, then there's always outdoor table tennis, with shade, numerous inflatable toys for the pool, a lawned area to play games outside, a games room with exercise bike, Nintendo Wii with Sports/fitness games for the whole family, an additional DVD player for fitness including Zumba or for the children to take a break from the sun with children's DVD's, board games etc. There is another DVD player in the Lounge with an extensive library of films and box sets. If you want to venture away from the villa, then really nothing is too far away, it's entirely your choice. The villa is a perfect destination for a family holiday, romantic getaway or for sightseeing. We hope it fits the bill for you too

Guestbook comments from the owner

What an amazing villa! We had such a wonderful and restful time here. Spotlessly clean and very well equipped, we hardly left. Weather was amazing, too hot actually, but we did make it down to the beach a couple of times around 6.30pm. We took a picnic and watched the sunset, Beautiful. Kitchen was so well kitted out a picnic was easy. Even cooked a roast for my daughter whilst we were here!! Sad to go but we will be back.

Beautiful luxury villa in the central Algarve area

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at Casa Bolota. We were a family of 6 (4 adults and 2 children) and the villa had plenty of space, and was well equipped for us all. The villa is immaculate and there is nothing that the kitchen doesn't have. It really is a home from home.

It has the most beautiful, peaceful gardens and grounds, with lots of outdoor seating space to eat outside. It has a fantastic swimming pool area which we spent a lot of our time at during our stay.

There was a lot of useful information in the villa for things to do in the surrounding areas and it's only a short drive to the beaches, golf, airport, towns and shops - so something there for everyone to enjoy. We played golf at Vilamoura and Vale de Lobo, and went sailing from Albuferia and Vilamoura marinas - all very accessible from Casa Bolota.

We would definitely recommend this villa to anyone looking for a holiday in the Algarve area, and we would definitely return for another visit.

Thanks Julie for a wonderful family holiday.

Fabulous!!

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful holiday at Casa Bolota. The villa is in a beautiful location with amazing views. It's so tastefully decorated and has every home comfort you need. The kids had a great time in the pool and we spent many relaxing hours by the pool enjoying the peace and tranquility. This was our first villa holiday and will definitely not be our last. We will be back!! Absolutely loved it. Andy M

The perfect romantic getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay here and it did not disappoint! It was fantastic, the perfect romantic getaway and we actually got engaged while we were there! My fiance had told the owner that he planned to propose and to his surprise, a bottle of champagne was provided for us - it was such a lovely gesture and in keeping with all of the attention to detail throughout the booking process and our whole stay.

The villa is gorgeous, with everything you need, and in absolutely beautiful surroundings.

I highly recommend this property and I will certainly be back again next year. A big thank you to Julie for making our holiday so special!

Our best ever villa holiday

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely superb in every way! Spacious, clean and well-maintained - both inside and out. A well-equipped kitchen. A fantasic pool set in beautiful gardens with stunning views. Good location with a hypermarket close by. We spent many happy hours by the pool and made good use of the barbecue. A holiday to remember!

The villa although in a wonderful, tranquil location, is well situated and just a short distance from the many tourist attractions in the area. You get the best of both worlds. The beach resorts of Vale do Lobo, Quinta do Lago, Quarteira and Vilamoura and others are all within easy reach. Many of the beaches in the Algarve are blue flag beaches. Quinta do lago, Vale do Lobo and Vilamoura have 13 excellent golf courses between them only 20+ minutes away. And as an added bonus when you set off to go to the beach or to play golf, you will see spectacular sea views, tempting you along your way.

The villa is situated just a few minutes away from the picturesque town of Loule. It is a characterful, historic, market town with cobbled side streets, a 13th/14th century castle, shops, cafes and restaurants. It's a vibrant place with interesting Moorish and Roman influences in its architecture and has a well known daily, busy indoor market in an Arabian style building, plus a Saturday gypsy market. Many events are organised in the town throughout the year. They include the spectacular Noite Branca, the festival of white night, where everyone, even visitors dress all in white to enjoy the music and dancing. Also the colourful Brazilian style Loule carnival which lasts for 3 days and is quite spectacular!! During the summer there are often music festivals held in the town.

Although having a very traditional feel and appearance, the town also has good sporting facilities and was crowned the European City of Sport in 2015. It has an Olympic sized swimming pool and tennis courts etc. It plays host to many competitions and International events throughout the year, such as cycling and swimming events.

Not far from the villa is Rooster Quad Tours, where you can explore the lovely countryside on quad bikes. In addition there is bike hire available locally (bikes can be delivered to the villa). The countryside around the villa is perfect for walking and if you venture up the hill behind the villa you will be rewarded with a spectacular view of the coast.

Although the villa is in a tranquil, out of the way setting it is very conveniently located and there is plenty to do for all the family not far from the villa. Lots of lovely beaches are approximately only 15/20 minutes away. You can choose from peaceful, long stretches of sand or more touristy beaches with water sports etc. There is a multi screen Cinema 10 minutes away (films are often shown in English with Portuguese sub titles). The Aquashow Parque is under 20 minutes away, Go Karting 15 minutes away and Zoo Marine is 30 minutes away. Plus, if you want some retail therapy there is a new large retail shopping outlet, Mar Shopping 10 minutes away from the villa which has the multi screen cinema, food outlets, shops and a designer outlet village. Many UK and International brand names can be purchased here.

There is a very large Continente supermarket just a few minutes drive up the road, so you can stock up ready, for al fresco dining and barbecueing. There are also several other large supermarkets in Loule.

There is an abundance of quality restaurants within a short drive, to suit all tastes and budgets from Michelin starred, to great food at very cheap prices, with wonderful country and sea views thrown in. You will be spoilt for choice.
