FIrst Class!

  • 5 of 5

This is a first class house with everything you could ask for to enjoy the perfect holiday.

Spacious, spotless, modern and well equipped accommodation finished and maintained to a very high standard in a beautiful setting. Just as described and more, with faultless customer service from the owners!

The real jewel in the crown is the huge roof terrace, perfect for family meals, enjoying the sun and looking at the wonderful views! The house is just a few steps from the pool and communal area which is kept in pristine condition. The whole resort is excellent offering a wide range of activities for all ages. The golf club offers excellent meals as does the onsite Vicentino Italian restaurant.

Supermarkets and restaurants are only 10 minutes away, also the local bakery in next door village, Budens, with the best fresh soft rolls ever! Enjoy a perfect coffee in the village café and watch the world go by!

This is truly an unspoilt part of the Algarve where you get an insight into the real Portugal. Beautiful beaches in Salema only 5 minutes away and many more along the coast. Plenty to see and do in a truly unspoilt part of the Algarve away from the hustle and bustle of the large resorts. I cannot recommend this house highly enough - perfect holiday - thank you!

Perfect location

  • 4 of 5

My family and I spent 10 days at Casa Clara this year .

Our 3 boys loved the pool area. We especially loved all the roof terraces, where you can get sun all day.

It was lovely to have air conditioning inside.

Perfect location for beaches ,both the south and west coasts and restaurants.

A car is essential .

A fab 10 days had by us all.

We will be back!!

A beautiful property in a superb location

  • 5 of 5

This property definitely had the wow factor for us. Bright, airy and meticulously clean with sumptuous beds and crisp cotton sheets. Spacious lounge - dining area with plenty of relaxing space. A great dinning table for all the family to relax, eat and drink at. The whole property was well equipped and we wanted for nothing. The roof top terrace was a big hit for our teenagers to sunbath and the grown ups got some peace and quiet with our own sun terrace just outside our bedroom door - a stones throw away from the pool area.

There was a fantastic restaurant in the nearby village which we can highly recommend not to mention the little coffee shop that made the most delicious coffee and a decent bar with a pool table/ games room all withing strolling distance.

We hired a car and frequented nearby Salema - a small fishing village- which was only 5 mins drive in the car and had the most beautiful beach and more excellent restaurants.

We had a totally chilled and wonderful family bonding time and we will definitely be back.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for yet another 5 star rating. We make every effort to give the property the "WOW" factor that you mentioned and even ensured the beds are king size for that extra bit of luxury. We are delighted that you enjoyed the roof terrace that is unique at the resort and provides south facing, all day sun and privacy. Thank you for letting us know that you will be back and we look forward to welcoming you and your family again.

Fantastic facilities for families with the beautiful beach at Salema only a few miles away and numerous other deserted beaches in the area.


Faro airport is around 50 minutes drive via a new motorway.


The local village is a few minutes walk, and the fishing village of Salema a few minutes drive away. Lagos is the largest local town. Facilities less than a minute's drive in the centre of the resort's facilities.Local supermarket is 5 minute drive

Further Details:

The resort can cater for your every need with multi-lingual staff and hotel facilities. The resort also has numerous restaurants as well as the vast choice nearby. A wonderful spa facility. Our guest want a few weeks of real luxury and a property that is as good as their own home and use of the largest private roof terrace because of all day sunshine and private sunbathing space.

Only select properties have legal and physical access to the main pool from late 2014 because of the introduction of locked gates accessible with owner keys.

Check before you book as most properties cannot provide guest access to the main pool even though they may display pictures in their adverts.

See guest comments on our website and you will see this is one of the most

popular properties to rent every year!
