Our wonderful week at Casa Velhas

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful property in peaceful surroundings. The website describes the property well but without doubt the property will exceed your expectations. As soon as we arrived we were met by the owner Ida and an excellent welcome pack.

The property is approached down a private drive with electric gates. Casa Velhas is a detached villa set in the middle of it's own grounds, with no properties nearby, just open land and has pretty open distant views to the mountains on one side of the property.

The swimming pool and area is immaculately clean and well kept with plenty of area for sunbathing. If shade is required there are various areas of the gardens that are shaded, as well as the beautiful pergola area.

An outside bar (fully stocked!) and evening relaxing area was a fantastic surprise.

We stayed for a week only (we regretted that we hadn't booked a fortnight) and had planned to eat out all the time, however the kitchens (yes two) were extremely well equipped, so much so that we cooked mainly at the villa, and also used the excellent BBQ.

Inside the villa it is very homely and has all the comforts of your own home. Great TV, DVD, comfy beds, freezer, fridges, washing machine, dryer, dishwasher and much more.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this villa.

Beautiful property set in private grounds

  • 5 of 5

Casa Velhas is a large property with many attractive features including breath taking views of the surrounding countryside; picturesque mountains and the sea in the distance. Located in its own extensive grounds means there is ample room to lose yourself or to enjoy the company of others around the large private swimming pool and gardens complete with its own outside bar. During our stay we spent most evenings dining alfresco sipping wine and watching the sun go down from what must be described as some of the most spectacular views in Portugal. The friendly owners,’ Bob and Ida, reside nearby and were on hand not only to answer any questions or address concerns but also have a wealth of local knowledge. The house itself is a real treat with all modern amenities to ensure your stay is a good one. Equipped to a high standard this offered us all the comforts of a home away from home holiday experience. We were so impressed with our first stay last year that we actually returned for this second visit and already we are looking to book again! We would have no hesitation recommending this beautiful property to both family and friends as an excellent stay is almost certainly guaranteed. We found this to be the ideal base to tour the local area with the main town with restaurants and bars’ only a short drive away. All in all a great property in a secluded location but close enough to all the amenities with friendly owners’ on hand nearby.

A most beautiful and relaxing place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from our second four week stay at Casa Velha. Having been regular visitors to the Algarve and in particular the Carvoeiro area for over 30 years, this is without doubt the most wonderful place we have stayed. The villa is beautifully furnished, quiet, secluded, with wonderful gardens with views, the most fantastic pool and most importantly, a totally relaxed atmosphere. It has every facility you would need and just feels like home. Owners Ida and Robert are the most charming hosts, who go out of their way to make your stay memorable. We can't recommend Casa Velha highly enough. We will certainly be returning.

Wonderful villa!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Velha is just the perfect place to stay. It is beautifully furnished, really comfortable and has everything you need. It is in a really quiet location and is so relaxing and chilled out. The gardens and pool area are beautiful, with loads of different places to relax and the views are wonderful. Ida and Bob were so friendly and welcoming and nothing was too much trouble for them. We loved the barbecue area and of course the bar - both meant we had lovely evenings after days spent relaxing by the pool or at the many lovely beaches in the area. Thanks very much again to Bob and Ida and we will definitely be back! X

Fantastic !

  • 5 of 5

We have just had the most wonderful ten days staying at casa velha , Its in a beautiful setting, the views are amazing, The house is so comfortable with a great little bar and lovely pool , there are lots of different areas around the villa to sit and enjoy a drink and relax . We really enjoyed the barbeque area watching the sun go down . you really could not want for more . Bob and Ida really made us welcome again as we have stayed there several times and already looking to book our next trip . The town is very pretty with a lovely beach and lots of shops and bars to while away the time . Harry's is obviously the best bar ! Quiz night is so much fun on Wednesdays hosted by Bob . There are several little beaches and bars all along the coast . The best bit was returning to casa velha at the end of a day out to relax in the peaceful surroundings .
