About The Owner

Hi We live in England. We spend many of our holidays in the Algarve and built Casa Campina with our friends as a joint venture in 2009. We have high standards and hope that you will find our villa exceeds your expectations. Please feel free to contact us for fuller details.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2009

Why The Owner chose Palhagueira

We built our villa after careful consideration about location. We wanted to be in a quieter location but with quick and easy access to all of the Algarve. We love the relaxed way of life on the Algarve and the variety that a villa in a secluded location in the hills gives us. Our villa faces south so benefits from a lot of sun in the summer. Consequently we have air-conditioning throughout. We find that Vale de Lobo and Vilamoura marina are best visited in the evening so prefer the convenience of a pool side holiday during the day.

What makes this villa unique

The property is very private with plenty of upstairs sun bathing areas. The kitchen is well equipped but we know not everyone wants to cook when on holiday. The area has lots of bar restaurants with exceptional value food. The famous Luis dos Ferangoes is in San Bras Alportel just over the next hill from us where you can mix with the locals for a great night out. Loule with its famous markets is just 5 minutes away. Here you will find a cosmopolitan town with everything you would expect. A brand new Continente supermarket is on the edge of Loule on the way to our villa where you can get hot food to take away if you land at night time in Faro. Naturally the Algarve is popular among golfers and all of the famous courses are within a 30 minute drive from the villa.

Great holiday

  • 5 of 5

Nine people of three generations from 5 months to 60+ had a great time. The best equipped, most comfortable villa we have stayed in. A must is to eat at the Le Marquis Restaurant at Palhagueira just down the road. A great pizza can be had at Pizzaria Milano in Loule. Shopping at Continente is reasonable where you can get a daily paper. Meat at Intermarche the other side of Loule is well priced.

Perfect Villa in Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a wonderful stay at this beautiful villa in Gorjoes. We had booked the villa to have various friends and relatives come and join us for a few days. Never having seen the villa despite knowing the area we were a little apprehensive as to how it would be for quite a few staying at the same time. We shouldn't have worried as it is beautifully and thoughtfully laid out and very spacious. The location could not have been more perfect. Easily accessible for Loule, Sao Bras and Faro, close the beaches including our favourites near Tavira and some amazing and excellent value restaurants very close by.

The villa is much prettier than the photos and the setting is absolutely beautiful. Very serene and peaceful. My favourite aspect was the view from the bed in the master bedroom suite which looks out directly to a picture perfect view. Waking to that view each morning was good for the soul. I also loved having my morning coffee and toast on the private balcony surveying the surrounding countryside and absorbing the tranquility.

All the bedrooms and bathrooms were well finished, well furnished and well stocked with some great showers.

The gardens are beautiful and well laid out so everyone can get the space they need. I was happy lying on my sun lounger with book listening to one group playing boules on the gravel in one direction, others at the table under the tree playing backgammon, whilst someone else lit the BBQ.

All of our guests loved it and we can't wait to return. Happy days indeed!

Great family space

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place for 3 generations to stay, and entertain. The remote location meant real tranquility, yet everywhere was within easy reach. The villa was very well equipped and well maintained. A few minor issues were speedily addressed by the property management company overseeing the villa. The villa description was very accurate and the contact with the owner was both friendly and efficient. The instructions provided, especially the visual directions from the airport, were clear and very helpful. Plenty of parking space, drying space and a lovely pool made this a great base for a large group to experience this part of the Algarve.

Amazing villa!

  • 5 of 5

Great villa in a wonderful location. Peaceful rural area but still convenient for supermarket, local towns and excellent beaches. Cannot fault the villa itself, modern, clean and very spacious plus excellent pool and lovely big gardens. Nice weather too - would love to visit again!

Fabulous Villa

  • 5 of 5

Fab Villa, modern, well equipped and very spacious, had a wonderful week 4th September 2015 with family of 10. Would definitely go back again. The children absolutely loved the pool and it was a lovely quiet area but not too far to travel to the beach, just 20 minutes away. Local shops only 10 minutes away
