Guestbook comments from the owner

Just wanted to let you know what a wonderful holiday we had at your beautiful home last week. Casa da Mouraria is by far the best villa we have rented in the Algarve and we have been renting there for 20 years! The house is simply stunning as you arrive down the beautifully landscaped gardens and we all spent many enjoyable hours in the pool.What a picturesque veranda too ,every meal spent there when we weren't eating out. Nigel and Emma Harris -July 2010

We would like to congratulate you for the lovely place and house you have in the Algarve. Lovely and comfortable rooms and a fantastic outside area.

Lovely villa well equipped and not far from amenities. You need a car though.

  • 4 of 5

It is a very nice villa well equipped with a lovely pool and outdoor space. Unfortunately the peace and tranquility was shattered most days by the neighbours dogs barking, sometimes as though they were fighting each other. The local representative does know the neighbours so she should be contacted if they do prove a problem. We only contacted her on the last day of our holiday about them. Before that we thought that they would stop eventually, which they did, however they did start again throught the day.

We stayed at this beautiful Villa in August 2016. It was breathtaking. We were a party of 12, 7 adults and 5 children. There was ample space. The villa was so relaxing we hardly left. We cooked in most nights and took full advantage of stunning sunsets on the veranda. The villa was of exceptionally high quality and we would not hesitate to give a well deserved 5 stars. Hopefully we will be back.Thanks Guy, a wonderful experience!!

Fabulous family holiday

  • 5 of 5

Having just spent eight days relaxing in this beautiful villa I can't recommend this villa enough. My wife and I, plus three grown up children and partners, plus my mum, were all very comfortable in what is essentially a lovely family home.

The pool and gardens and outside terrace areas are where we spent most of our time and the loungers are particularly nice.

For us the location was perfect, very rural and peaceful but within easy reach of beaches and restaurants. Albufuera is 5 minutes away and the golf courses at Villamoura are a 20 minute drive away.

All in all we had a wonderful holiday and would definitely return.

Casa Mouraria is 5km west of Albufeira and 6km from the beaches of Galé, Castelo, Evaristo and São Rafael.


Casa Mouraria is approximately 45km or a 45 minutes drive west from Faro airport. Faro Airport is served by most national and so-called low-cost airlines. Car hire is highly recommended due to the country setting and it will give you easy access to the local area and the Algarve region. Further afield , Lisbon and Seville are both easily reached within 2 hours.


Guia village is 3 kms.away and has facilities such as mini markets ,banks , chemist , bakery, restaurants and cafes. The Algarve Shopping Centre is near to Guia and has the largest supermarket in the area as well as many many shops. Albufeira town at 5 kms is far enough away and close enough for easy access to all the facilites of a busy tourist town day and night. There are numerous restaurants in the country and beach vicinity to Casa Mouraria to cater for types of cuisine and budgets.
