About the Owner

The villa was purpose built as our holiday home and We have spent many great days around the pool with the children. The local beaches of Altura, Cabeco, Manta Rota and Tavira island are amongst some of the best beaches in Europe.

The villa has two Master Bedrooms plus two twin rooms and four Bathrooms

We arrange the bookings and our property manager Rachel looks after all of the guests. Rachel is on call 24/7 and will see to any problems that might arise.

The villa is great for all the family and there are plenty of activities to do day and night with pool table, table tennis, Etc.

Great family villa with fantastic pool in a good location.

  • 4 of 5

We all had a fantastic time staying at this villa. It is really spacious and a great layout that works well with a large family. The bedrooms upstairs are very spacious with plenty of room for the children's beds. It was also lovely to have so many bathrooms.The pool is fantastic and brilliant for all ages and abilities due to its depth and the smaller children's play pool. We hired a car so that we could get to the surrounding little towns and supermarkets. The villa is well equipped in the kitchen, pool area sunbeds, children's toys and inflatables. Altura is a lovely town and so is Manta Rota. There are plenty of great places to eat and a few shops to have a wander around. The beach is fantastic you would be hard to beat it and its great when the tide goes out for the little ones to play in the shallow pools. The owner was always quick to follow up any questions we had.

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful villa situated in one of the less spoilt parts of the Algarve. It's beautifully decorated & equipped with everything you need. The villa is clean, tidy & has adequate space/rooms for couple of large families. All the rooms are fitted with decent air conditioning - a real comfort from the hot summer temps, and the outdoor pool is also a good size for all the family to enjoy. My family of 6 would have no hesitation in returning.

Brilliant Luxury Villa.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this very luxurious villa. We were a party of 10 and as described there was plenty of room for all of us. The property was spotless when we arrived and was as described. We had all the equipment we needed. We even did some washing before going home. We were expecting a good standard but this exceeded our expectations. There was something for everyone which wasn't easy with our mixed age group. There were games, pool, table tennis and inflatables for the kids and the adults weren't left out either. It was within walking distance of the town, Altura, with its lovely beach and great restaurants. We visited the nearby waterpark which was great fun. We also made the trip to Tavira to take in the sights.

On my return I haven't hesitated to give the details of the villa to friends, family and anyone who will listen really. We had a great time and if you are looking for a nice relaxing/hectic holiday with all the comforts of home then this is the villa for you.

Our perfect holiday villa!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this villa so much we will be returning to Casa de Rising Sun for our third stay this summer! We are two families with teenage/young adult offspring, who enjoy each other’s company and this villa had everything we needed for a perfect family holiday. Our aim was to find a villa where we would all be happy to spend most days of our holiday relaxing, eating and drinking in each other’s company. We were not looking for a holiday where we would spend most of our time driving around, sightseeing, dressing up and eating out. Casa De Rising Sun did just what we wanted and exceeded all our expectations, even those of the teenagers! It is situated in a beautiful part of the Algarve within close reach of several small towns suitable for a morning’s sightseeing and picking up supplies. We did not venture far from the villa……there was no need! Afternoons were mostly spent lounging around the fantastic private pool with a beer or a glass of Mateus Rose, followed by an evening of laughter around the barbeque. For the more energetic/ adventurous the villa has a games room inside, outside games and is a pleasant stroll away from Altura with its idyllic beach, shops, bars and restaurants. The spacious villa is very comfortable with 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms and has two first floor balconies so perfect if you prefer more privacy. There is plenty of shade for dining or sitting outside in the heat of the day and it has air conditioning throughout. It is spotless, with a well equipped kitchen and garden and obviously well cared for. Having your own transport is an advantage as the villa is in a very peaceful location. If your ideal holiday is relaxing undisturbed, unhurried and unworried in the sunshine surrounded by good company then this is the place for you!

From the Owner

We bought the property in this area because in our opinion the beaches on the Eastern algarve are second to none. They stretch about 50km all the way from Faro to Villa Real on the border with Spain. It is very accessible within easy reach of Faro or Seville if needed. The villa is set in the village of Barrocal which is very peaceful and typical Portuguese. If you require any more information or photographs on the area please do not hesitate in contacting us and we will be more than happy to help.

The advantages this villa has over other similar properties are the activities that we offer and the space for everyone to have a great holiday. It is only a ten minute stroll to the town of Altura which gives everyone the freedom to explore the area without the need for a taxi or car. We can also help out with airport transfers through a local company.
