About FIONA

My husband and I live in Middlesex. We like to spend as much time as possible at the villa but these days our time there is spent ensuring that everything is in tip-top condition for our guests. As such, the days of relaxing holidays by the pool are long gone but we wouldn't change anything as we want our guests to love Casa Aurora as much as we do.

Why FIONA chose Loule region

Prior to purchasing the villa we spent many happy holidays in the Algarve, mainly the West Coast area. However, we instantly fell in love with Casa Aurora and are delighted with it's close proximity to the cosmopolitan Vilamoura whilst still maintaining a short distance to enable us to experience the "real" Algarve. We have five fabulous golf courses practically on our doorstep (within a five minute drive) and the airport is only 20 minutes by car which is a real bonus when you just cant wait to get there!

What makes this villa unique

It is a short 7 minute drive to the Marina of Vilamoura with it's numerous bars, restaurants and shops. The beach is directly off the Marina which is lovely for an afternoon stroll along the promenade to Quarteira or the opposite direction towards Albufeira. However, as this is a very tourist area it is lovely to go back to the villa and dine at the local Portuguese restaurant called "the "Orange Pate" which is a brisk 15 minute walk and renowned for their lamb stew and lamb chops. It is extremely reasonably priced for such good food. Also, we have the local "Oasis Bistro" which is again a brisk 15 minute walk and is open 24 hours which is inexpensive and great if you're running very late or just want a snack (they do fabulous extra large toastie sandwiches which kids and teenagers love).

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have stayed in numerous villa's prior to Casa Aurora and can honestly say that this was by far the very best and such good value for such a stunning villa. Certainly our best family holiday to date. WE WILL BE BACK!!

Ooh La La! What can I say? A fantastic holiday in a palatial villa. We really could not fault anything about Casa Aurora except the fact that we had to leave. The owners were very friendly and informative and kept us updated throughout and after the booking.

Even better than it looks! Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

This is a gorgeous villa with everything you could possibly wish for! We stayed here with our two boys and parents and we were all well catered for.

Fully equipped - The kitchen was better equipped than ours at home, extra beach towels were a god send and DVDs and games for the boys were great for getting away from the midday heat.

So comfortable - this villa is lovely and spacious and spotlessly clean. Even the beds and pillows were really comfy (something you will struggle to find in most villas).

Facilities - The pool is a perfect size for a family and is kept beautifully clean. There are even a variety of inflatables for the children to save money on buying every holiday. The games room was perfect with a full size pool table and table tennis to entertain us all.

Owners Fiona and Danny were so welcoming and helpful, they genuinely want you to have the very best time. The pride they have taken in creating a beautiful home for their guests to enjoy is unique and refreshing.

Thank you for sharing it with us.

Amazing villa

  • 5 of 5

Wow this was an amazing villa. It is a real home from home with everything you could want and more. Pool and table tennis was a real bonus. There were inflatables for the pool and a few toys and games for younger children. The villa is modern inside and all good quality furniture inside and was spotlessly clean. Vilamoura marina is only a short drive away and we spent many a night there visiting the restaurants. The owners are fantastic and were on the end of the phone if we had any questions . They provided us with details of the local area, shops and restaurants to visit . I would definitely recommend this villa and would love to return .

Excellent villa

  • 5 of 5

The overall experience was wonderful. High up in the hills overlooking Vilamoura and the ocean. Beautiful country walks and walking distance to a nearby fabulous restaurant.

Fiona could not have been more helpful and everything was available in the villa.

It way surpassed our expectations.

Well done Fiona and Dan for renting such a beautiful home.

Fabulous facilities in great location

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing Villa with an owner who pays very close attention to everything that could possibly be required. There are more facilities than we ever imagined and the games room in the basement kept the boys (14&16) occupied and out the midday sun. The location of the villa is only a short distance away from Vilamoura and a car is definitely required to fully appreciate the surrounding area. The villa is situated in a peaceful location with a number of great restaurants close by.

I would recommend this Villa as an outstanding place to stay due to it being so well maintained, clean and has the extras that many others do not.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Just having returned from a weeks holiday we were blown away. This was to be the most relaxing holiday we have ever had. The attention to detail at the villa itself is outstanding, everything you need and more on hand and well thought through. Clean, spacious and bright! The outside areas also exceed expectations, are not overlooked and are very peaceful and pretty. Our experience was exceptional and we are already planning our return. Book it you won't be disappointed.

Peaceful, quality villa close to amenities.

  • 5 of 5

The villa is located off the main road from Faro to Alberfiera, away from the noise and the crowds. The only sound is from the local cockerel and the odd dog barking.

The accommodation is first class throughout, the ideal home from home. Many little extras, like the pool table & table tennis in the garage, the brick built barbecue and the bicycles provide something to keep everyone occupied from morning to night.

There were four adults in our party,but the villa could easily suit six without falling over each other.

A fabulous property to be highly recommended..
