About the Owner

I had the villa built approximately 30 years ago and still enjoy my trips to the Algarve a few times a year. There have been a lot of changes in the local town (Armacao De Pera) and also at the villa. We've been able to constantly improve facilities (air-con, pool heating, solar panels, modern kitchen) whilst maintaining the good value and also the character of the villa. My 6 children now take their families out to the villa and the 19 grandchildren really enjoy the pool and gardens, as well as the fantastic beach nearby. I hope you will enjoy it one day too.

Lovely secluded clean, spacious villa & grounds

  • 4 of 5

Comfortable relaxing holiday. Villa cleaned regularly. Very well equiped. It has a large pool with plenty relaxation space around it. Resort centre, beach and supermarket are a good 25 minute stroll away. We opted to hire a car which made shopping easier and helped us to see a few other areas. We did though walk to the centre in the evenings for dinner. No complaints about any of the restaurants. Watersports on the beach. We enjoyed a visit to Aqualand Waterpark and Silves is worth a look.

Amazing villa for family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have have been back from our holiday for a few weeks and have really bad holiday blues. We went out as a family of 6 adults and 2 young children and have had an absolutely wonderful time. The villa was so much bigger then what it looks like in the pictures. The layout was great as we all had our own space and bathrooms. It was well maintained and fully equipped with anything you could possibly need (a home from home) the couple who look after the property were lovely and keep the place very clean and supplied us with clean linen and towels regularly.

The local supermarket was great, it was in walking distance along with the beach and restaurants but as we had 2 young children to drag along in the heat, we decided to get a hire car for around €25 a day. This came in very handy as we ended up visiting other towns and beaches.

It's worth taking a note of the direction given to you as the post code doesn't take you directly to the villa as it's up a private drive. We also managed to arrange to drop our luggage off at the villa before our check on time as our flight was very early, we just wondered into town for some lunch.

Overall we had a fantastic holiday, great weather, great food, great beaches (very cold water) and great villa. We definitely would love to return again very soon.

Excellent all round

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property in a lovely location. Grounds are fabulous, and villa is spacious inside....walls are stone so its also pretty sound proof... we had the babies who woke screaming for food everynight but nobodyb else in the house could hear thr commotion! The highlight of the house of course was the heated pool..... both day and night saw lots of goofing and splashing around!

We travelled with 6 adults 2 5year Olds and 6month old twins..... because of the babies and the fabulous hot weather rathet than walking to the nearby beach and town we used a taxi service... it cost us less than a euro each and made it very very handy. The town and beach are fabulous with plenty of bars and restaurants... it has a lovely family atmosphere with something to do for everybody. Zoomarine/ splash and slide/aqua land are all close by too which gives LOADS of entertainment for the kids.

Overall a truly fantastic holiday was had by us all ...one that we'll treasure forever..... well definitely be back next year!

Beautiful spacious private villa

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a very relaxing week at case Jaime. The villa is extremely spacious and well equipped. Everything was immaculately clean and well maintained. The gardens are beautiful with nespereira fruit tree in the garden full of the fruit.

The pool is very large and as we went in April, we were a little worried that it may be a little cold so we paid the extra for the pool heating, it was lovely and warm! We couldn't get our son out of it.

There is a very helpful guide in the villa with directions to the local restaraunts and supermarkets along with beaches.

The owners of the villa are extremely friendly and helpful which made booking very easy and worry free.

We will certainly be re booking again in the near future.

Perfect family holiday villa

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, clean and fantastically equipped villa set in a lovely location, it was perfect for our large family holiday. The pool and gardens were a real highlight - well maintained with a lovely tropical feel to them! For us it was a great location as we were able to walk to the local beaches, shops and restaurants, and therefore didn't need to hire a car, which added to the totally relaxed feel of the holiday. We even managed, very easily, to catch the bus to Aqua Land! Our party included children, teenagers, parents and grandparents, and we all enjoyed our stay. Better than I could have dreamed of.

Our holiday at Casa Jaimie

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely holiday at Casa Jaimie for two weeks. The villa was very comfortable and the children in our party had a great time in the pool, as did us adults. The beach and restaurants were close. The beach was superb and good for a morning walk. The restaurants also were very good value. Manuel and Gracelina looked after us very well throughout our stay and all in all we would give this villa ten out of ten. Wonderful holiday. Would definitely go again.

From the Owner

It is close to Armacao de Pera - a vibrant town with good facilities and a lovely beach. The villa is out of town so it is very quiet and peaceful.

Activity and Interests

Car: not necessary


The nearest beach is at the resort town of Armacao de Pera, a vast and beautiful beach with plenty of activities during Summer months - just 1.5 km from Casa Jaimie, just 15 minutes on foot or a few minutes by. A whole variety of beaches such as Gale, Salgados and Castelo are all within 10 minutes drive.


Faro International Airport is approximately 35 minutes drive away, a car useful for a holiday at Casa Jaimie for exploring but by no means essential as Armacao de Pera is only 1.5km from the house, the route is pedestrian friendly and taxis are readily available in the town if required.


Armacao De Pera 3 min drive.

Alcantarilha 3 min drive.

Aqualand Water Park 5 min drive.

Zoomarine 5 min drive.

Loule 30 min drive.

Vilamoura Marina 25 min drive.

Silves Castle 20 min drive.

From the Owner

Being 1/2hour from the airport you arrive at the villa without much hassle. The villa is secluded and private and it feels like a real escape. Fortunately its only a 1 mile to town and the shops, restaurants and beach. There are a lot of golf courses within a 1/2 hour drive so there is plenty to do - or not (if you want to laze by the heated pool).
