About the Owner

We are sisters Lesley-Anne and Sarah and Casa Nova was handed down to us by our mother. We both live near the sea on the South Coast in England and try and get out to the Algarve as much as possible.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A lovely villa, clean and well presented. If you like the thought of relaxing in a peaceful setting, whilst visiting busier areas when you feel like it, this is the place to stay.

We had a fabulous time at Casa Nova - the place is superbly equipped and extraordinarily spacious. It felt more like home than a holiday let. We particularly loved eating breakfast on the roof terrace looking out over the olive groves to the sea. Despite being next door to Casa Figueiras it is very secluded and private and the huge terraced area provides a variety of sunny and shady places to eat, read, sunbathe and generally chill out. (Martin and Maria.)

The service from Sarah (property owner) and Remco (property manager) were fantastic. Sarah provided us with tips of places to eat and even gave text the morning before we left to wish us a nice trip. Remco was also full of good tips for food and activities in the area. We will be coming back here again.

Perfect and magical

  • 5 of 5

This place is magical, perfect in every way. Calm, very cozy and quiet with a beautiful view and yet, still very close to the beach. The house is just wonderful. Fully equipped, very comfortable and full of charm, it is even better than what is portrayed in the photos. Thank you so much Sarah (owner) and Remco (manager) for a great service. We had a wonderful family time and definitely will try our best to came back again soon.

Private and secluded

  • 4 of 5

The place is well located and very private, with a gorgeous view. The wifi and air conditioning were both invaluable to help to stay cool out of the midday sun, it was very hot. We had a little tootle around the area but to be honest, the holiday was primarily to relax and chill, which we achieved fully! We received very useful booking confirmation and additional holiday information prior to leaving.

Wonderful villa for a relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had an excellent ten days at Casa Nova. The villa is well maintained and has everything you need. It´s perfect for a couple but would suit a family of four as well. The area, Malhadais, just outside Boliquieme is beautiful, quiet and peaceful and a perfect base for exploring the rest of the Algarve. The view from the terrace is stunning, you can see all the way to the Atlantic. Walking down to Boliquieme only takes about 20 minutes. There you can find both restaurants and cafés. But you do need a car to get around. We spent many relaxing afternoons around the pool which was just great after a day full of activities.

The owner, Sarah, was very friendly and helpful from the start. She responded to emails right away and a few weeks prior to our holiday she sent a whole folder with information about the house and the Algarve. When we arrived at Casa Nova we were met by Remco, the house manager. He showed us around the house and gave us information about the area. If we needed help with anything he was just a call away. Our ten days passed to quickly and it was hard to tear ourselves away when it was time go back home.

We will definitely come back again!

Peaceful, pretty and homely Villa Casa Nova

  • 5 of 5

Villa Casa Nova is a pretty little villa on a hill above a typically Portuguese village, with a beautiful view down to the coast. It's ideal if you want to get away from the chaos of life, but close enough to the coast to dip in and out of the busier tourist areas as and when you want. The villa is well maintained, has all the mod cons, a nice little pool and a great terrace for lying in the sun with a book. The nearby village of Boliqueime has everything you need for provisions and some good cafés and restaurants, and it's walking distance even with a steep hill on the way home. You do need a car to get around (or get up the hill after dinner!), but if you don't want to hire one we left a card on the pin board of the local driver that we found and the overall cost for the week including airport runs was about the same.

Wonderful rural retreat in the sun

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Casa Nova. The house was everything that we expected. It is very well maintained, was spotlessly clean and has lovely furniture.

The house manager was very friendly and helpful.

It was really nice relaxing by the pool looking at the almond and fig trees and the sea in the distance.

Excellent traditional restaurants and stunning beaches are within easy driving distance.

The visitor guidebook is a goldmine for ideas.

We would highly recommend Casa Nova to anybody looking for an authentic Portugese experience. We are planning to return.

Lovely villa in a quiet but convenient location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Villa Casa Nova for a week towards the end of August and really enjoyed the stay. The villa is a very good size, and was clean, comfortable and well managed. The pool is a decent size and the villa offers some lovely views from it's high location.

The location itself is quiet, but a close distance to the lovely town of Loule and Vilamoura. Boliqueime is also well within walking distance.

The information that we received prior to our trip was all very helpful, and communication with the owners never a problem - they were always quick to respond to emails and very helpful. The villa had everything that we needed - really struggling to think of anything else that we would have wanted that wasn't already there.

I would strongly recommend this as a place to stay to anybody looking for a nice calm, relaxing holiday, that is also conveniently located.

From the Owner

Set in the peace and tranquillity of Malhadais, just outside the bustling village of Boliqueime, Casa Nova’s location couldn’t be more perfect. As an artist and writer respectively, we crave the space, light and seclusion of its rural setting and have enjoyed many wonderful holidays here with family and friends. The villa is equipped with everything you should need for a memorable holiday and its pool and gardens are totally private.
