Guestbook comments from the owner

"We absolutely loved the villa, its maturity and convenient location. We have always previously stayed further west along the Algarve but we are so glad we have discovered somewhere different. Our stay was wonderful, attention had been paid to every detail in order for us to enjoy our time there. Lloyd was very helpful and Julliette was charming, a credit to such a great property. We really did not want for anything during our stay, a fabulous warm, clean pool, carefully planned seating areas to enjoy a shady lunch or evening drinks as the sun went down, quality fittings and linen and such a well equipped kitchen. We have successfully booked many places with Owners Direct but I think this one comes out top! Many thanks once again." James and Sally

Excellent location, and facilities, for a chilled-out extended family holiday

  • 5 of 5

As Grandma and Grandpa, we had an amazing time with our almost 2-year-old granddaughters and their Mum's and Dad's.The child-friendly pool lived up to expectations, and there are good supermarkets and restaurants within easy reach. There are spectacular sites close by, if you can drag yourselves away, and friendly staff to ensure everything runs smoothly!

Great break for the wider family!

  • 5 of 5

Casa da Tara lived up to almost all of our (high) expectations of it. A party of 11 from three generations, aged from 2 to 66, we came together to celebrate a wedding anniversary. The villa offered a very spacious and restful base for our holiday and provided the perfect starting point for exploring this delightful area of Portugal.

If I were to be picky, I would point out that the advertised "walk" to town and beach was great and very doable for most of the members of our party, but didn't work for the very youngest, nor for me with arthritic knees.

The house and its garden are well equipped and maintained. They catered well for the needs of all the members of our party, whatever their age. The option to take our meals in different parts of the house and the abundance of crockery and cutlery suited us very well.

Lovely well equipped villa.

  • 5 of 5

We found the villa suited our needs very well. It was clean and very well equipped. The gated pool was brilliant as we had 4 children under 7 and it was also the warmest pool we have experienced. We paid to have the pool heated and it cerainly was. Lots of areas outside to sit and a very well tended garden. Fairly easy walk into town but a steep climb back. Would definitely consider renting it again

Fabulous! Beautiful & Spacious House and Pool

  • 5 of 5

I spent a week in Casa da Tara with my family and another family in early November and it was one of the most relaxing holidays I ever had. The three children loved the pool and spent hours in there every day. Even with two families we had loads of space. As well as the pool area there are quite a few verandas and patios where you can hang out around the whole house - whether you want to sit in the sun or stay in the shade. Everything we wanted was in easy access, shops, restaurants and the beach!
