Casa jardim is a ranch-style timber cottage sleeping 6 + cot, with 3 double bedrooms, 2 bathrooms (1 en-suite) a very well equipped kitchen and open plan living with glazed doors leading directly onto the pool terrace.

The property has been furnished and equipped to a high standard and makes it a perfect home from home holiday experience for families. In a quiet rural location in Eastern Algarve, not overlooked and with stunning views from the terrace towards the hills in the west.

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.'

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

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.

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.

Home from home

  • 4 of 5

This holiday home is equipped the way you would your own home,good pans, knives, towels, bed linen, food in the fridge and beer! In June it was perfect very warm during the day but cooler at night. If you want to relax read books enjoy the sun and a small safe pool this is the place for you. 20 minutes from airport the very last bit of the journey takes some working out but just call and Joi will direct you 'home'.

So good we're going again!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Jadim has everything for us. The kitchen is fantastically well equipped which was a joy for us combined with the BBQ outside and the fantastic local ingredients.

The rooms are beautifully and thoughtfully decorated and the air con in the bedrooms meant that we were comfortable at night - a real bonus.

Our children loved the pool and it was the perfect size for us to enjoy safely together and cool off during the gorgeous weather. We also loved the beautiful sandy beaches close by all of which seemed to be very family friendly.

There are some gorgeous local restaurants where the local people made us welcome and were happy to cater for the children with smaller plates of food or sharing platters. The local food was delicious with plenty of fish and seafood complimenting the local vino verde perfectly.

In fact, we had such a relaxing holiday that we're just about to book to go back again - and I can hardly wait :)

Activity and Interests


From the cottage you can walk for miles in unspoilt level countryside. Beautiful sandy beaches can be accessed in 20 mins by car. There are little ferry boat trips to many small islands on the Ria Formosa, and a small 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.


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.
