Wow! What a Villa ! We had a fantastic holiday at Casa St Therese.

The Villa is fabulous - very comfortable - within walking distance to all amenities - weather was fantastic - wonderful pool - what more could you ask for?

Every one of us (all 15) had a great time and loved the Villa.

Thank you again for all your help.

Nephews 30th birthday

  • 5 of 5

The villa was booked for my nephews 30th birthday and there was 10 adults and 3 children. The villa was amazing and I couldn't fault it. The villa was clean and had all the facilities required. It is a bit out of the way however we got taxi's to pick us up. We visited lots of places whilst we was there it was an ideal location. Would definitely recommend for a family holiday :-)

Myself and 15 friends enjoyed a memorable week at Casa Santa Theresa!! The villa had excellent facilities, an amazing pool (which was always pristine) great rooms for socialising and really friendly staff!! All the bedrooms were well sized with decent en suite facilities. The top floor has an amazing master bedroom with a breath taking balcony overlooking the sea and the old town of Albufeira. The old town is just a 5 min drive away and there are 2 massive supermarkets 5 min drive perfect for large shops! I would thoroughly recommend staying at Casa Santa Theresa and would like to thank the owners hugely for their hospitality.
