Guestbook comments from the owner

"As regular users of self catering properties, we feel this far exceeds all the other accommodations. Everything to make our stay comfortable was catered for. Beautiful setting, wonderful views.'



'We just wanted to get away from the UK summer (rain and cold) - and we got so much more! Very positively surprised by the child friendliness and the equipment of the villa. I could not find anything missing. This made it so easy to relax into holiday mood! Thank you for a fantastic 2 weeks - we will definitely visit again.'



Thank you for a fabulous holiday here at Casa Jardim. Myself, my wife and especially our 2 boys have thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, and considering this is our first holiday overseas with the kids, the fact that the villa is so well equipped and caters for every need really helped us to relax. Thanks again for a fab holiday.'

Warm, welcoming, perfectly set up for a family

  • 5 of 5

This place and the owners ooze nurture, peace, kindness - everything you need to get restore - whilst giving total space and privacy. The villa is on the grounds of the owners (who are English), but set so far away from the main house, that it does not intrude or feel in any way that anyone else is near (our children - 4 of them - are loud - and we didn't feel the need to hold anything in!). The owners greeted us when we arrived late at night and left the most almighty welcome pack of food (much appreciated by all) to tide us over until we got out to the shops. We have only seen them when we called on them and each time they were super efficient and super helpful. The property is rural, quiet, beautiful views, good bits of nature in the high-gated grounds, and locally around for children to explore. Black out blinds on the windows, fantastic unexpected extras - like beach towels, sun umbrellas, bags - and loads of toiletries, sun lotion (presumably left by previous holiday makers?), DVDs, books, board games, football, inflatables, kids loved the cats that were hanging around, lovely bedding, lots of space and natural wooden materials everywhere. A lovely fenced swimming pool, barbecue, sun loungers, outdoor tables. Good local town and easy-going food market, lots of great places to eat near by, beaches about 20-25 mins away - Close enough to get to easily on lovely roads, and far enough away from the tourist jungle and in real, simple Portugal. So if like us, you're dipping your toes, tentatively, back in to traveling - with children now in tow, we really, really recommend this place. Thank you Barry and Jo, for a perfect stay.

Owner's Response: Well....what can we say except a really big thank you for such a comprehensive review. If we had written all of that, it may have been taken as an exagerration, but coming from a lovely family who stayed with us, who have been there, seen it and written a review from the heart, just as they experienced it, it couldn't be better. When we set up the holiday cottage, we wanted it to be a thoroughly enjoyable experience for both adults and children and thought along the lines of 'what would we like to find if we were staying there ourselves'. It is therefore excellently equipped and it seems our endevours are being very well appreciated. Thank you Gemma, Sam and family. Hopefully we will be welcoming you back in the future.

Far from the Madding Crowd!

  • 5 of 5

This wonderfully tranquil retreat exceeded all expectations derived from reviews. The location is rural but amenities and beaches are only a short drive away.

Jo and Barry gave us the warmest of welcomes and left us with ample "goodies" to make an early shopping trip totally unnecessary! Having given us a tour, they returned to their own house with the promise of leaving us to our own devices unless required.

The "ranch" is cosy and beautifully furnished. There is every appliance you could require and ample consumables for cleaning and personal care. Casa Jardim is indeed a home from home! I know it is heaven for families, but it was bliss for us as a couple to sit by the pool and say "what can you hear?" Answer? Silence! We were so relaxed we had to force ourselves to go out to explore the history and beauty of the area.

We would recommend it to any couple seeking refuge from the hurly burly of everyday life! Thank you Jo and Barry we will be back!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much Helen and Peter for taking the time to review your holiday recently spent in our cottage. It is just perfect for us to realise that we can also get it right for couples, coming away on holiday to spend a quiet and relaxing time, away from the 'Madding Crowd'. It is exactly like that here in Peral. Sit and relax in the sunshine and just listen...bird song and later in the year cicadas, is just about all you will hear. It is a blissful 'get away from it all' haven for couples and families alike, and yet, as you mention, all amenities and beaches are just a short distance away, that is, if you can drag yourself away from the ambience of the cottage and the peace and tranquility of sitting near the very private pool. We do hope to welcome you back in the future, as so many of our guests return, and some return on several occasions.

Absolutely Amazing and highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

Having been to the Algarve on numerous occasions,this was by far the best accommodation we have stayed in and exceeded our expectations. We booked believing we were staying in a wooden lodge after the first day we were calling it "The Ranch!!

The Ranch was certainly finished to a high standard with lovely furniture and a huge kitchen containing everything you could think of..

Barry and JoI supplied a welcome pack the only way i can decribed it is a weeks shop!!

Being a family of six with four children from the age of 5 to 16, we all had a fantastic hoilday and left feeling very happy!

The views were amazing,especially at sunset which was amazing to see

I would be 100% happy to recommend to all...

Thank you so much Barry and Joi,please do not change a thing xxx

Car hire is essential as it is quite rural which we loved and would definately book again..

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for writing such a lovely review about our holiday home here in Peral. It was truly our pleasure to have such a delightful, happy family staying in our cottage, your laughter was infectious! Our aim is to make the whole experience completely comfortable and 'home from home' with everything provided. Our guests can then relax and enjoy a wonderful, peaceful, family holiday that can be cherished in their memories for a long time to come. When we get a glowing review (like yours) with such positive feed back, it makes us feel very happy to think we may just have achieved that aim. We do hope you decide to come and stay again, you will, of course be very welcome.

Excellent accommodation

  • 5 of 5

This property is very well equipped and the furnishings are of a high standard. The maid service is excellent.

The owners are very helpful and friendly.

All in all this was a first class holiday and we are returning for three weeks in October.

Marvellous!

  • 5 of 5

Wow, what an incredible venue for a holiday. Now back in the damp heart of England we're really missing those hot, lazy days spent by the pool.

Casa Jardin is a wonderful villa, with all the mod-cons you'd expect in a wonderful setting; more importantly though are the wonderful owners Barry and Jo who made us feel very welcome and even assisted us when our car had a flat tyre. Barry and Jo left the best welcome pack we've ever had, plenty of liquids -including wine- and enough food for a simple but filling snack. All you could possibly need is there, you only have to get there.

A range of supermarkets are nearby and only 5/10mins drive away. There are also a number of wonderful places to eat the best being Lagar Mesquita which is reasonable walking distance if you fancy a good stomp.

The highlight for us and our kids were the wonderful cats that joined us for our evening BBQs. If cats aren't your thing they won't hassle you and can be easily kept out of the villa and pool area. It took them a while to suss out that we were friendly.

Location

Activity and Interests

Coast/Beach:

From the cottage you can walk for miles in unspoilt level countryside. Beautiful sandy beaches can be accessed within 20 minutes by car. There are little ferry boat trips to many small islands on the Ria Formosa, and a single track train ride can be taken to Barril beach from Pedras D'el Rei. The beaches East of Olhao are stunning and stretch all the way to Spain. The beach at Manta Rota, east of Tavira is well worth a visit, and a 20-30 min drive through the breathtaking Algarve scenery will get you there.

Travel:

The motorway is 10 min away and Faro Airport is about 20 min drive. Local shops, restaurants, banks, doctor, dentist etc are 5 min drive away in Sao Bras and Spain is about 30 min away. Nowhere is very far to get to, but a hire car is essential for staying at Casa Jardim and enjoying the pleasure of exploring the surrounding area.

Notes:

  • Notes on accommodation: Although the property is all on one level there are a few steps up to the terrace and the entrance, so it is not suitable for wheelchair access.

The bedrooms have a/c and all the rooms, including the bedrooms, have oil fired central heating radiators for use during the winter months when the evenings can get quite cool. All the windows are fitted with insect blinds. We can provide a cot and high chair if requested in advance. We adopt a strict No Smoking Policy within the property. Pets are not permitted. Outside: Casa Jardim is surrounded by a large plot of land planted with olive, fig, carob, fruit and almond trees.

There is a swimming pool which is fenced for the safety of young children. A pool terrace with sun loungers, parasols and drinks tables. Table and chairs on the terrace for you to enjoy al-fresco dining and/or drinks whilst enjoying the panoramic views. A Portuguese style BBQ with table and a generous seating area for 6 in the BBQ area, which benefits from some shade.
