Guestbook comments from the owner

We have had a lovely time and the house is one of the best we have ever stayed in. Love the fact that you have provided those extra touches – would love to come back. The weather was a bit hit & miss but the fire made it lovely and cosy. Loved the maid service, I felt very spoilt . Thank you for making it so welcoming.

Wonderful, family friendly house!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a fantastic few days in this amazing property. It has a huge amount of space with ensuite bathrooms for every room. It is was beautifully clean and comfortable. For me it was perfect in that it was that rare thing - a house that is peaceful, rural and isolated yet within easy walking distance of several great restaurants!

There is a lovely pool (we paid extra for heating and so glad we did - it was wonderfully warm and we swam even on the cooler days). The area itself is stunning and there are plenty of places to explore nearby. There were also toys and DVDs to amuse the children which is always a bonus! I really recommend this property for a group of friends or a family group.

Relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

Lovely house - spacious, modern and with an amazing view down the mountain all the way to the coast. The property is well maintained and has everything available that you need for your stay. Great location in the hills near lovely town of Monchique and with great range of restaurants at the end of the drive.

Thanks so much.

Peace, tranquility and everything you might need

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Casa Nino on a number of occasions. It is a wonderful place! Beautiful views to the coast, a great pool and equipped with everything you might need. It is a very peaceful place, with lots of privacy yet at the same time it is close enough to walk to two restaraunts. The property managers are always keen to help, and of course it is in Monchique which is a magical place itself. Thank you for letting us stay.

If carling did holiday villas

  • 5 of 5

This is probably the best villa we have ever stayed in. It is equipped with everything you could possibly need. A genuine home from home feel, the owners have gone to great lengths to provide a perfect holiday base. Immaculately clean, very homely and comfortable. Fantastic views day and night, (the stars at night are so bright) The pool is perfect, big enough for the adults to swim lengths and the kids to mess about in. The BBQ was also a big hit. The beds were very comfortable and the en-suite bathrooms a nice feature. A wonderful location it is so peaceful, we loved sitting on the balcony, listening to the birds and admiring the views. (we finally saw the woodpecker after hearing him most of the week!) The mountain air so fresh even in the summer. We would definitely recommend this villa and shall certainly visit again. Thank you very much for a wonderful holiday!

Fantastic views & spotlessly clean

  • 4 of 5

This is a wonderful villa which is extremely well equipped (short of nothing) and is spotlessly clean! The views were fabulous from the main balconies both day and night, from the sea views to the twinkling lights not only from Lagos but from all the stars! Although the villa doesn't have air-conditioning I have to say it wasn't too bad, although the ceiling fans were a little noisy and we had to leave them on at night otherwise it would have been too hot.

The children enjoyed the pool, but it did seem to get a lot of dust and leaves in it - we had to keep it covered when not in use in an attempt to minimise the debris. There were plenty of sun loungers and parasols which was great and provided much needed relief from the relentless sun. BBQ area was excellent and we used it most nights.

There is the best chicken piri-piri restaurant ever just at the top of the road - less than 5 mins walk which was brilliant and always busy!

Just as a note of caution, the driveway is a very steep gravel drive and when we stayed there had some deep potholes, so drivers beware!

Would I go back? Most definitely! We had a fantastic holiday at Casa-Ninho - thank you :-)
