A wonderful family holiday
We enjoyed a lovely stay with two children and two grandparents, plenty of space and a lovely location and friendly and super helpful owners (and extended family) - even when we managed to lock ourselves out!! Some gorgeous restaurants nearby, including one in walking distance, but lots more a bit of a drive. Not the place to go if you want a lot of hustle and bustle, but that is only a short drive away if you would like it. Beach easy to reach, but we loved the pool so didn't really bother heading down there. Lovely views too! Certainly wouldn't rule out a return visit and more than happy to recommend it.
Quality secluded villa
We had a wonderful 10 day stay at Casa David. The property is about 100m down an unmade road from the village centre at Corte Antonio Martins. The villa is on a hill with lovely views all around including to the sea at Manta Rota. The villa has been constructed and maintained to a very high standard. There are shutters and also fly screens on all of the doors and windows so you can let air in while keeping the bugs out if you don't need the air conditioning. The rooms are all a good size with good storage in the bedrooms so you don't have to keep tripping over all of your luggage. The kitchen is well equipped with a large fridge/freezer and Evelyn has an extra beer fridge that she allowed us to use which was really helpful.
The pool area is perfect. There is so much space you can spread your sun beds as far apart as you want and it is in the sun all day. We definitely needed the parasols. The property is not overlooked so complete seclusion is guaranteed. The site is in a small rural village so you are more likely to meet a tractor than a tourist bus. There is no local shop so you will need a car. There is one restaurant and bar 100m from the villa at the village main crossroads. The menu is quite limited but the food is excellent and good value. Do try the black pork but Google what it is before you go. There is another restaurant about 800m away and this is much more secluded and has lovely views from the eating area but we felt that this was just too far to walk in the 40degree heat and we didn’t want to drive. We did try to go to the golf course to eat but the restaurant there closes at 9pm which was a bit too early for us. Don’t miss Sabinas in Cacela where you are served steak to cook yourself on a hot stone. Fantastic steak, Prawns and lobster and really good value.
Evelyn was really attentive to us throughout our stay. There was an issue with a parasol which we emailed her about one afternoon. By the time we awoke next morning there was a new parasol and base by the pool ready for use. Excellent service!
As the villa is elevated and quite exposed, it can get a bit windy especially of an evening. It is less of an issue in the day when it is often quite welcome in the heat.
Overall, fantastic accommodation and ideal for those wanting a quiet and relaxing holiday or to explore the eastern Algarve and Spanish border area. Evelyn was a dream to rent from and we can’t praise her highly enough.
