Well appointed clean villa

  • 4 of 5

Nice villa with all the necessary amenities. Better equipped and maintained than most villas we haved used over the years. Outside area/pool really good. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with only a few niggles. There are a lot of dogs in the adjacent properties and when one kicks off, they all do. At times it was like feeding time at Battersea dogs home. The bins outside the villa got a bit smelly at times and the road noise was occasionally intrusive. I realise these are issue outwith the control of the owners/rental company. If there was one thing I would suggest to change it would be to put more info in the villa covering stuff like how to get the tv working on anything other than sky news, recommended local restaurants and places of interest, local markets and the like. Would we go back again? I think so!

I had a wonderful time in Casa Laranja. It was exactly as described and surpassed my expectations.

It's position on top of the hill is beautifully scenic, particularly at night where you can see the lights of the busy coastal towns from the serenity of the terrace.

The property was very clean and well looked after, it looked like a show room, and it was incredibly well facilitated.

The area is fantastic and feels much more authentic than nearby Vale Do Lobo, although the closeness is very handy for meals if you want to go down there. I very much recommend Sr. Frango's chicken shack nearby, amazing Portuguese cuisine and very cheap too, there's nothing better than finishing a great meal and receiving such a little bill.

A strange tip, if you like beer, Sagres do little tiny bottles of 250ml which means it's not warm when you get to the bottom of the bottle as a result of the beautiful sunshine.

I had an amazing week here and hope to return again very soon.

Fantastic Stay!

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic stay we had in Casa Laranja! The whole family came out and the villa was superbly equipped to deal with all our nuances.

The children were happy to paddle in the kids pool, the adults could relax whilst in the main pool and the comfortable outdoor seating provided adequate space for family games and eating. We made use of the excellent outdoor BBQ and the cozy sun loungers all week!

Being with older members of the family, we found that the local amenities were accessible (very close) and well stocked. The villa is of course located near to fantastic beaches and great restaurants. (Sr Frangos, highly recommended for families!). Casa Laranja is also a short taxi ride away from Vale Do Lobo and Villamoura, for those looking for a good night out!

All the bedrooms are well furnished and have excellent air conditioning- the bathrooms have, it seems, been recently refurbished and they are finished to an exceptional standard.

Overall, we really had a great stay and we all can't wait to go back next year!

Wonderful relaxing villa

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful villa!

We went to Portugal for a relaxing time and were not disappointed.

The villa was beautifully furnished with the most comfortable of beds. The kitchen was extremely well equipped and the outside covered area provided a great space for long lazy lunches. The pool is wonderful and the small pool provided a great place to sit and read a book.

A good selection of supermarkets just a couple of miles away with the Apolonia supermarket being like a mini Waitrose!

I would throughly recommend Casa Laranja and have already booked to go back next year.

Lastly the owners of Casa Laranja were extremely helpful with nothing too much trouble.

Beuatiful villa in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing holiday in Casa Laranja. Upon arrival we were blown away with how beautiful the villa was and things only got better from there! The swimming pool and outside area were perfect for relaxing during the day and we were very content relaxing around the pool in the daytime. The cooking facilities were also very good, allowing us to cook and BBQ on several nights but when we wanted to eat out, we found we were a short drive away from an excellent selection of bars and restaurants with a more up-beat night life. We would very much recommend the villa as it seemed newly renovated and provided us with a fantastic holiday destination.

Superb villa

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this villa for a golfing break and would definitely recommend. The villa is tastefully furnished and the kitchen well equipped should you wish to eat at home. The bathrooms have recently been refurbished and are well appointed. The pool area is superb and the garden features a large area, undercover, should you wish to have shade. It's also a great place to eat outside without being in direct sunlight. The local village has a good selection of shops, restaurants and supermarkets. There are numerous golf courses within a very short distance and the beach is a mere 10 minute drive away.

Car: recommended

Special interest holidays:

For water sports enthusiasts, the lake at Quinta do Lago (5 minutes drive) is recommended, the "Aqua Land" water park, near Quarteira is well worth a visit for family, as is Zoo Marine, 40 minutes away, where swimming with the dolphins is the main attraction.


Quinta do Lago Beach is less than 10 minutes drive. This 10km stretch of unspoiled sandy coastline runs along the beautiful Ria Formosa Nature Reserve and extends to Ancao, Dunas Douradas and beyond Vale do Lobo


5 minutes by car to Quinta shopping where there are excellent restaurants as well as designer boutiques, 10 minutes to Almancil, the nearest Portuguese town, with more shops and restaurants, as well as a large supermarket, Apolonia, which serves all needs. Vale do Lobo, also 10 minutes away, has some fine restaurants and nightlife for teenagers. Loule is 30 minutes away, and Quarteira 20 minutes drive.

Further Details:

We are Simon and Louise from Surrey. We have been holidaying in Portugal for the past seven years. We had the opportunity to buy a property abroad and fell in love with Casa Laranja. We hope you enjoy your time in our Villa as much as we do.
