Fantastic villa in a great location. A little Gem.
This fantastic, well equipped, villa is ideal if you"re looking for a break away from the hussle and bussle of the popular southern coast Algarve resorts. Situated in Vale Da Tela (a short drive from Aljezur) the villa is in a quiet location. It has everything you could need - including stuff for the beach. We stayed here in August 2016 as a family of four. The kids loved the pool, which has the sun on it until sundown. The villa easily sleeps six and there is loads of room. The nearest beach is only five minutes drive and is one of the best in the Algarve. Other great beaches are nearby. This was our first villa holiday. We would love to return again.
Great for family holiday!
The villa is perfect for a family holiday. 3 spacious bedrooms, lots of living area, and the best part: huge pool and outside area around the outdoor bbq.
The house was super clean and neat and pretty much everything we needed was there. Nice private backyard and the kids loved the pool.
Local supermarket was short drive away, and beaches not much further. Very quiet neighborhood so slept nicely :)
Highly recommend Brilliant family holiday
My wife and our two children stayed at Casa Atlantica this year and I cannot say enough about it. We absolutely loved it.
The great thing about it us that you are away from all the crowds of the general Algarve but all the main towns and beaches are still accessible. After a about an hour from the airport and a great drive through the hills, you arrive at Vale Da Telha. The villa is towards the rear of the area and one of the closest to the nearest beach.
The villa has everything you could ask for and was even better that it did not have WiFi. The kids had to play in the pool not on their iPods. A selection of dvds were available for the evening and their are plenty of books in the villa.
We loved the built in bbq and the walks to the beach across the wild countryside.
One thing I would say is that you do need a car. This is a quiet tranquil place away from places like Albufeira and Lagos and was perfect for us . If you want your own private pool in private surrounds then this is just right. Also, I thought great value for money. I've been to Portugal many times and have paid 2-3 Times as much on the south coast for far less.
Lastly... The restaurants and food and drink are so much cheaper here than in the main towns on the south coast.
We will be going back next year!
Amazing Holiday, Amazing Villa........5*
Me and my two Children have just returned from Villa Casa Atlantica in Vale Da Telha after a weeks break there.
The Villa is amazing.......a true Home from Home....with everything you could wish for. The Pool area and Pool itself was beautiful and we spent most of our time there.
There is a shop and a couple of nice restaurants about a 20 minute walk from the Villa. I would recommend a car as it would make life easier to get about.
The local beach is again only a 20 minute walk and has a couple of restaurants there and again is very beautiful.
All in all we had an amazing holiday in the Villa and will definately return.
I would also like to mention Janet the owner who gave me a personal phone call and talked me through everything at the Villa and also sent me directions and all info needed, which was a really nice touch, so many thanks again for letting us stay at your Villa......
