Lovely, charming house in great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at casa Helena for two weeks with

our 3 children and it was absolutely perfect for what we needed. The house and pool are very clean and also really private. Helen herself is a fantastic host and even made us sandwiches for our late arrival. We wouldn't think twice about rebooking if we return to this amazing area. Thanks Helen, we definately plan to be back!

Loved it!

  • 4 of 5

We had a long weekend away (Thursday to Tuesday) for our wedding anniversary. Away from it all, away from the kids! We wanted to relax, rest, surf, read and enjoy the sun. Also the beautiful scenery and delicious Portuguese food and wine. Helen made us feel very welcome. She is friendly and hospitable. As she has been in Portugal 25 years she knows the area so it was good to find out where to go for different things. The cottage is cosy and we really enjoyed staying in it. We enjoyed the pool and barbeque areas too. Arrifana is great for surfing although a little busy at times. Monte Clerigo is very beautiful too. We enjoyed the local restaurant and also one in Arrifana. We found the supermarket fairly pricey so we would suggest going to the nearest Lidl!

We would definitely like to return, may even bring the children next time ;-)

Thank you Helen xx

Quiet, cosy and well located house

  • 5 of 5

My wife, daughter and I stayed for a week in Casa Helena. We really enjoyed our stay. First thing in the morning was breakfast outside on the sunny terrace then long the swimming pool sessions and finally direction to one of the great beaches of Aljezur located few miles away from the villa. For those who love natural, quiet and peaceful places away from busy cities, Casa Helena and Aljezur are perfect. And for those who like surf like me, it's the best place with the renowned spot Arrifana few miles away. The house is exactly as described with all what a small family like mine needed. We recommend Casa Helena without a doubt and we will definitely come back soon. Thank you Helen for your hospitality.

Beautiful, quaint house with super welcoming host.

  • 5 of 5

I could not have asked to meet a more gracious, welcoming hostess (Helen) who's beautiful home is a fantastic retreat for anyone wanting to experience the Algarve. Fantastic local restaurant for those not wanting to self cater and a gorgeous beach nearby. Ideal holiday location!

Perfect Holiday

  • 5 of 5

This quaint property had everything we needed for a most enjoyable holiday. Helen our hostess and her husband were friendly and helpful and made our stay a pleasant experience. The villas locality makes it a perfect point for exploring nearby towns and beaches, along with some excellent local restaurants. We will certainly be visiting again next year if not before.

Perfect little cottage

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Casa Helena in September for 10 days. It is as described, small but perfect for us. It has a fantastic BBQ area which gets the evening sun. The pool area is great too. The location is great for the beaches which we spent most of our time at. The owner Helen is lovely and was very helpful and recommended places to eat. Clean towels during our stay was much appreciated. Would highly recommend staying here and Im sure we will be back in the future as we love this area of Portugal.
