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

Excellent Villa - Great Holiday

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time staying in Casa Romantica and I would have no problem recommending the villa.

The property is in excellent condition, is very spacious and comfortably slept 4 adults and 3 children. Its very well equipped and everyting you could need is there.

The pool area was secure and its overall proximity to the house was great for bringing out drinks etc. The line in the pool to show the shallow end was also great.

The location is perfect - just far enough out the village for piece and quiet but close enough to walk to the restaurants and bars. The shopping center is also only a couple of minutes drive.

The booking process was smooth and we were provided with all the information we would need for our stay prior to departure.

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
