10% Discount Sept & Oct 2017

Bookings now being taken for Summer 2018

Casa das Heras, our beautiful holiday home is set in a peaceful countryside setting, yet very close to the beaches and villages of western Albufeira.

No expense has been spared in creating our superb luxury villa. You can pay 3 times this rental in Quinta do Lago for the same size and standard of villa. As soon as you open the gates, it’s the wow factor that greets you. Please read our reviews and we invite you to contact us directly for further information. The front hall with guest wc off leads to the huge sitting dining room which measures 30ft x 30ft!, with log burning stove, large dining table, 2 three seater sofas and two easy chairs, satellite TV with BBC & ITV channels , music system and two sliding doors to the terrace, pool and garden. In the dining area is a large dining table. The villa has 4 bedrooms, 4 en-suite bathrooms, and two sitting rooms with TV’s (BBC, ITV etc). Air conditioning is provided in the bedrooms and huge sitting room. Our large private swimming pool is 80cm deep at one end and 1.40m at the other end,can be heated at extra cost, there are easy steps and a built in seat along the shallow end with water around 30 cm deep. The grounds are very private and spacious with a huge lawned area by the pool for Croquet. Air conditioning in the villa is included. We have an outside dining pergoda and a great built in barbecue next to it, table tennis under a second pergoda and a croquet set provided for a great game on the lawned gardens.

It Enjoys a quiet location in Vale de Parra, close to beaches, shops, restaurants etc. Albufeira is 3 miles away. It is 3 minutes walk to a good restaurant, two bars, a supermarket, fish monger and a takeaway food shop, and just 5 minutes drive to lots of sandy coves, beaches and a golf course. In less than five minutes drive is the village of Guia where Sir Cliff Richard has his own villa and vinyard. The vinyard can be visited on a tour. Guia boasts over 20 restaurants and is where the world famous chicken piri piri was first made. Try one of the specialist restaurants for this fantastic dish. Don't miss the chance to see the fantastic Dolphin show at the nearby Zoo Marine Park. Maid service is 3 days per week (more if you want) and we have a local English Villa Manager who is on hand to give any information or help you may need.

For those not familiar with the Algarve or Albufeira, the area to the west of this popular resort is considered the best places to stay by seasoned visitors. You will find at least eight beautiful sandy beaches and coves within just a few minutes of our small selection of villas, most with beach bars and restaurants. There are several well stocked supermarkets and a huge selection of good restaurants to choose from. Although close to the Algarve’s most popular resort Albufeira, we find most of our guests only pay the odd visit into Albufeira, preferring the beauty and peace and quite of the area around our villas, and its fabulous beaches. If you want more information on the area, please contact us.

All linen and towels are provided. Bed linen is changed once per week and towels changed twice per week.

The prices shown under Prices and Availability(above) are correct, but the quote shown on this page is not correct as it includes an Owners Direct service Fee which we do not charge.

Andrew Killeen purchased this villa in 1999

Why Andrew Killeen chose Albufeira

We bought the land and had Casa das Heras built for us, therefore we chose both the position and the design of the villa.

It really is a luxurious holiday property with spacious rooms and gardens.

What makes this villa unique

You will get absolute peace and quiet, and yet local shops, restaurants and beaches are all within just a few minutes drive.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Paul, Andrew

We have just returned from your villa which was amazing. We had a great time and the villa was beautiful.

Jo Cohen



The villa was absolutely fantastic (I have recommended it to several people) and we had a great time thank you.

Do you only cover Portugal or do you have similar properties in Spain?

Ian Spenceley



Hi Paul, Andrew



Just wanted to get in touch and say how much we enjoyed our stay at Casa Das Heras.

We have stayed in many villas in the Algarve, but can definitely say that this has been the best so far. The pool and grounds are amazing, and the villa itself, beautiful, well equipped and gorgeously furnished.

The maid worked so hard and e were all very sad to leave and my girls have been asking each morning since we got home, when are we going back!!

I'd like to thank you for your help in the initial booking stages and for supplying such a wonderful holiday.

Until the next time

Another wonderful stay in Casa das Heras

  • 5 of 5

This was our third visit to Casa das Heras and yet again we all had a wonderful holiday. There were three generations staying including an 18 month old and we certainly made use of the pool and surrounding grounds.

We particularly like how rural the property is, yet is within a very short distance of the beach, supermarkets and restaurants. And Albufeira is only a 10 minute or so journey away. (We always hire a car as it is essential here).

The villa is extremely spacious and everything you need is provided - including a bean to cup coffee machine! The grounds are beautifully kept and very private and the pool is just the right size.

The local manager is on hand should you have any problems and is only a phone call or text away; the maids come three times a week; and there is also a man who looks after the general running of the property and grounds (he is really friendly and speaks good English as our Portugese is woefully lacking).

As our family expands I suspect we will have to look for a larger villa in future which is a real shame as this place really is perfect and we would be hard put to find somewhere as nice.

Owner's Response: Dear Sally Thank you for your review and kind words about our villa and staff. In respect of your expanding family, we also have a larger 5 bedroom 5 bathroom ultra luxury villa nearby, and I will send you details and a link to see it. This is Cantinho Oliveiras. I hope you will be able to enjoy that one in the foreseeable future. Best regards Andrew & Paul

Fantastic Place to Stay

  • 4 of 5

Immediately impressed with the villa, the space and cleanliness was second to none. The pictures on the website are impressive but still don't do the villa justice. There were eight of us including two younger children and there was ample space for the children to play football and frisby, my elder kids made full use of the table tennis and we all loved the pool. The outside dining area was perfect, and had plenty of room for all eight of us. I'm now racking my brain trying to think of how our stay could have been improved and am struggling to come up with anything. The maid, gardener and manager (Lorraine) were all very friendly and approachable. We will definitely consider this villa the next time we visit Portugal in the not too distant future.

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

This was our 4th stay and we love it. The villa is spacious, clean, homely and well equipped. The outside space is even better, very private and quiet, with a large pool, lovely big garden, plenty of room to eat outside or just sit or lie in the sun and a choice of BBQs. The "indoor" BBQ option is a great bonus, especially in the spring and autumn when evenings are shorter and cooler. The cleaner (Maria) and pool/maintenance man (Antonio) are friendly and helpful. The villa is well positioned for access to the beach, shops, golf, etc. Couldn't ask for more!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review our villa. As you know, we have several villas in the area, and we try to keep the same very high standard with all of them. It is difficult to explain in writing the standard of our villas, but for those thinking of booking, please read our reviews from satisfied guests, most of who return each year. Thank you and regards Andrew & Paul

A beautiful luxurious place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed with the villa, which is luxurious and well appointed. The bedrooms all have beautiful en suite bathrooms and balconies. The pool was a real bonus, especially as the weather was so hot we didn't want to do anything but swim and sunbathe. The grounds of the villa are lovely and well looked after and we appreciated the regular maid service . The only thing we felt the villa lacked was a larger fridge or perhaps a beer fridge. With 7 people we had to shop fairly regularly and extra fridge space would have helped.
