About Sue Hill

We first went on holiday to Portugal over 25 years ago. We found our perfect second home Casa Alegre. I live in England with my husband and have 4 children, apart from being a maid and a taxi service to our children, we have made our villa very child friendly, with its own gated swimming pool.

I work from home letting out properties in the Algarve. I started with our own villa Casa Alegre and I am now renting out 15 villas these have 2 - 5 bedrooms all in central Algarve. The owners of the properties are friends who we have met over the past 10+ years. I know the area very well and can offer renters & owners the benefit of this knowledge.

Our dream goal for us is to emigrate to Portugal one day, where we have made many friends.

Happy Holidays, Sue.

Sue Hill purchased this villa in 2004

Excellent Villa

  • 5 of 5

The Villa was excellent for our mixed age family, the children loved the pool which gets the sun all day, plenty of sunbeds, the villa was very clean with everything we needed. Large supermarket just up the hill and plenty of restaurants to choose from, the old town is lovely and the children loved the fairground which is at the end of the town. Great beach very close and clean.

Would definitely recommend this Villa.

Fantastic family holiday in super villa

  • 5 of 5

My family of 6 adults and 2 children age 2¾ and 8 months enjoyed our stay at Casa Alegre and it was nice to be met by Anita even we though arrived later than expected.

The Villa is wonderfully well equipped for family holidays, everything that we could possibly have needed was provided including toys and baby equipment including a potty and toilet trainer seat. The living and sleeping accommodation is more than adequate for a large group. The pool and BBQ areas were particularly popular especially with the brilliant weather we had, my 2 year old granddaughter is now very confident in the water. The games room was popular and cool in the afternoon heat. The town of Armacao de Pera is a wonderful friendly place with some excellent restaurants and beaches we all enjoyed our late evening strolls through the town.

I would( and have already) recommend both this Villa and Armacao de Pera to anyone as a holiday destination, especially families.

We will be back

Great Holiday here, again !

  • 5 of 5

The 3rd time using the villa, 4 couples, and as the previous twice, great!

The villa is clean, very well equiped and well appointed.

An ample sized pool

All that is needed for a fantastic self catering holiday.

A large supermarket just up the hill was very useful

A great view from rear of the property towards the sea.

The beach, lovely and sandy with beds and umbrellas, and town a short walk from the villa, The walk back is up a short incline.

There are good resturants both on the beach and in the town, recommend The Clipper at the end of the prom and the sardine resturant to the right as getting onto the beach.

A car was hired, via the link in Sues letter, and was delivered and picked up to/from villa.

The manager was more than helpful giving much more information than just the do and don'ts. The cleaner, although having poor English was friendly and helpful.

All in all a great holiday, good chance of us making a 4th visit :):)

Lovely clean well equipped villa great pool etc.

  • 5 of 5

A big thank you for allowing us to rent your beautiful villa, at times there were 13 of us ranging from 6months to 70, everyone had a fantastic time and we've now got 3 swimmers without arm-bands from your lovely pool. the villa has everything needed to make life easy, the games room was excellent and the range of TV programmes or DVD great. We'd definitely recommend Casa Alegra to our friends etc. Anita is so nice & helpful also Louisa. Armacao De Pera is really lovely with very nice people lovely restaurants our favourite is Villa Do Italia in Porches fab. food & staff, but there are lots more lovely ones along the beach.

Car: not necessary

Coast/Beach:

The beach is 400 metres from the villa.

It is a gentle walk to the beach where you will find the first of many restaurants at the start of the pedestrianised town of Armacao de Pera.

Armacao de Pera boasts the longest beach in the Algarve. This is of beautiful fine sand and stretches for miles. To the East it is lined with fishing boats and served by beachside restaurants. Immediately in front of the villa and to the West the coast changes to small coves and secluded beaches. If you crave privacy, a very short drive away are some of the most beautiful, secluded, sandy beaches and coves in Europe.

Travel:

A car is NOT essential.

I am happy to arrange Airport transfers and/or car hire if needed.

A hired car can be delivered to the villa any time during your stay if required.

Distances:

Town - 8/10 minute walk, or 2 minute drive to free beachfront car park. 20 + brilliant restaurants in town. There are 5 fantastic theme parks within a ten-minute drive from the villa. These are all very different, satisfying all tastes – those craving excitement or a quieter day, most catering for all ages within the same park. They vary from water parks (Slide & Splash, Aqualand, Wet N Wild) offering huge flumes, slides and wave pools, to the unique “Krazy World”, and Zoomarine.

Further Details:

Provisions can be purchased locally, in Armacao de Pera, with Pingo Doce the locals supermarket choice, offering great fresh food at low prices. If you prefer English brands the Intermarche supermarket (less than 1 mile from the villa) offers familar choices, at "holiday" prices. These can also be purchased (at far lower cost) at Iceland, a short drive away at the up-market ‘Algarve Shopping’ complex, which boasts a hypermarket, boutiques, numerous (10+) restaurants offering a variety of cuisine, bowling alley and (very good) multi screen air-conditioned cinema, with most films in English.
