Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Steve, Just wanted to drop you and your wife a line to say how much we enjoyed staying at Casa Romantica for the 1st week of our holiday in Portugal. Your villa is absolutely superb and was everything we could have wished for. We had great fun in the pool and exploring that part of the Algarve - swimming with dolphins at the Zoomarine being one of the memorable outings. I know we'd like to stay there again at some point in the future - especially when our youngest is old enough to do the dolphin swim as well, instead of having to be an envious spectator! Thanks again and best regards - Andy The Latcham family from Bushey in Hertfordshire

Hi Steve, Just back from a very enjoyable holiday, the villa was wonderful; I don't think your pictures in the web really do it justice - The Price family from Wilmslow in Cheshire

Stayed at the Villa for a short break with friends and would definitely revisit with our family, great accommodation, very well equipped, beautiful pool and patio area with a short walk to Town, which has some excellent restaurants. Would definitely recommend.

Great family holiday

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful villa ideal for a family holiday. Well equipped, spacious and clean. Peaceful location and short drive from loads of shops in two shopping centres as well as walking distance from local village. The pool was great, large enough for older children to swim but with shallow end for smaller ones. The garden was generously sized with plenty of room to eat, relax and play around pool. Pool area was safe as lockable gates made sure children didn't sneak out into water. Also we enjoyed eating breakfast on the patio outside the kitchen, and watching stars come out on the roof terrace. Beaches locally are a short drive away, clean and beautiful. There are things to do like zoo and water parks nearby, but we mostly just stayed in the villa as it was so nice. The children have asked regularly can we go back! Heartily recommended.

Great Villa, Great location.

  • 5 of 5

We had our family holiday there and it was excellent. The villa is immaculate and the facilities are brilliant. The heated pool, wi-fi and skytv kept us nice and busy and the kids never wanted to leave the place !

Close to town and good shops, golf nearby and not far from Galle beach and Albeufuira but far enough out to be private and restful.

We will go again !

Thanks from Dave and the family.

Wonderful villa, lovely pool.

This villa has everything you need for a relaxing and peaceful holiday, if you want to eat in, the villa is equipped with as much as you have at home, and probably more! the bbq and pizza oven are excellent, if you want to eat out in Guia you wont be disappointed, as there are many good restaurants .

Thanks Steve for sharing your villa with us

We just wanted to thank you for letting us stay in your amazing home in Portugal. We had the most fantastic holiday and Casa Romantica was the perfect base. It's a beautiful villa with everything we could have wanted. The pool was a huge hit with our daughters who spent nearly every hour of every day in it, and having it heated meant it was an ideal temperature for us all. We enjoyed exploring the area and your information guides were extremely helpful.

We very much hope that we can stay again in the future and will of course be in touch when we get round to thinking about our next holiday.

Thanks for everything Steve. You helped us have a most memorable first family holiday in the sun.
