Fantastic family Villa!

  • 5 of 5

Villa was exactly as described and had everything we needed. Perfect for a family of four. Spent a fantastic week relaxing by the pool and enjoying the hot weather. Villa is in a perfect location for many Algarve activities, beach and sea only 10 minute drive away and Algarve shopping centre only 5 mins away. Kimberley was great and popped in to visit to make sure everything was there that we needed, the welcome pack was a thoughtful touch and appreciated. Cannot praise the property enough and would definitely recommend. We are certainly looking at returning again.

Excellent villa

  • 5 of 5

This villa caught my eye from the start, we had been looking for a villa for a family of four for weeks and came across this one, i'm so glad we did.

It didn't disappoint as it was everything and more we could have asked for, it was spotlessly clean, inside and out , the whole building was very well maintained, kimberley the owner called on us to make sure we had settled in and gave us some advice on local shopping, days out, oh and some shortcuts whilst driving which came in very useful. The welcome pack was much appreciated too and was a nice touch.

All in all a very relaxing holiday ,the kids loved the pool and certainly made the most of it, we also enjoyed days out at the zoo marine park and had a boat ride from the beach to the caves in albufeira.

Perfect for a family of four

  • 5 of 5

Casa Fayum is a beautiful villa and is perfect for a family of four.

The listing is very accurate and the villa has all of the facilities and amenities listed. The villa is even nicer than the photos depict and was very clean upon arrival and is cleaned weekly, the welcome pack was a lovely touch too.

The manager (Kimberley) was great, keeping us up-to-date and ensured that everything was in place for our arrival.

We had 2 lovely weeks at the villa which included mornings at the local beaches and afternoons around the pool. With young children we also had a great day out at Zoo Marine. The nearby "Algarve Shopping Centre" includes a great supermarket and there are lots of bakeries/supermercados to buy fresh bread in daily.

I would thoroughly recommend this villa and would definitely return.

Lovely villa

  • 5 of 5

Casa Fayum is a beautiful villa. Everything about it was excellent. As described in the listing, it is furnished and decorated to a high standard. It was very clean and well-maintained. The pool was great and was maintained every few days and it was really useful to have beach/pool towels provided. The area was very peaceful during our stay. There are a number of good restaurants within easy walking distance. There are more restaurants a short drive away in the Vale de Parra/Gale area, although we almost always walked to Guia or used the built-in BBQ. But I can recommend the grilled sardines at one of the beach bars! Kimberley visited at the beginning of our stay and was very friendly and helpful. The welcome pack of goodies waiting on our arrival was really useful. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Casa Fayum.

Excellent Villa

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic villa in a beautiful location. The villa had everything we could have wanted for our family holiday. A bonus to have beach towels as it saved on suitcase space! Welcome pack of food and drink was a lovely touch. Villa was very clean and sheets/towels changed after first week. The photos of the villa do justice as it is as lovely as it looks. Pool cleaned several times during our holiday by friendly staff. Local agent available for any queries/problems. Only a 10 minute safe walk to the local town, where we ate good cheap food in restaurants/cafe. Large 'hypermarket' and shopping complex only 5 minutes drive away. Only 10-15 minute drive to Zoomarine, Krazy Golf and Beaches. Would definitely recommend this villa.
