About Julia PYE


Julia PYE purchased this villa in 2014

Why Julia PYE chose Charneca

We bought the villa as a family home with the view of settling down here during the quieter winer months.The quiet hilly surroundings offer cooling summer breezes whilst offering glorious views of the coast and surrounding countryside.

What makes this villa unique

Having Faro airport within 15 minutes drive is a huge advantage when we have family visiting.

We are enchanted with Loulé and its open market.

We love the local restaurants in Santa Barbara de Nexe. So much to do and explore for all the family.

A perfect holiday

  • 5 of 5

My wife and 2 children could not have had a better holiday. The villa is absolutely perfect both indoors and outdoors. It is only 20 minutes to Faro airport, 20 minutes to the beaches near Quinta Do Lago and Vale Do Lobo, and the local supermarket has everything you need. there are also some super restaurants very nearby, most notably Le Marquis (http://www.restaurant-le-marquis.com). The views are amazing, particularly from the incredible roof terrace (ideal for evening drinks), and the outdoor furniture is plentiful and luxurious. The owners also made sure that they were contactable if anything went wrong, not that anything did go wrong. All in all we couldn't have had a better two weeks and look forward to returning. Huge thanks to the owners for helping myself and my family have a wonderful holiday.

Wonderful villa for our family holiday of 3 generations

  • 5 of 5

We've just returned from a fabulous week's stay at Lucy and Julia's gorgeous villa - clean, spacious, comfortable and with every amenity supplied. We especially enjoyed the wonderful seating area outside, with comfy seats and couches in the shade, and study wooden sunbeds for those who love to brave the heat! The rooftop area was beautiful for evening drinks watching the sun go down, and the large pool was a hit with us all.

Inside the villa, the sitting room and its 3 very comfy sofas were perfect for relaxing, and the TV and games system looked great, although we never really got around to using them much. Ceiling fans and air conditioning kept us cool. The kitchen was well equipped, and the second fridge freezer in the laundry room was perfect for storing drinks.

Gina, our contact in Portugal, was very helpful, meeting us at the villa and showing us everything the villa had to offer, but also later in the week when we had some questions. We also had a worry about the pool around 9pm one night, and she organised the pool maintenance man to come round within about 10 minutes, despite the lateness of the hour.

All in all a fabulous holiday; we were very sad to leave...

Excellent - tranquil setting and beautiful vistas

  • 5 of 5

This villa is perfect if you are looking for beautiful scenery, quiet surroundings and a private getaway.

Although it is only a 10 minute drive to Faro, the villa feels like it is hidden away in the countryside. Surrounded by vast landscape and mountains you have complete still and quiet as you play in the pool, explore the huge garden or just chill under the pergola.

Facilities were excellent - the pool was heated (an extra £150 but worth it for the evening dip under the clearest, starry sky). There is also a huge TV inside for late night movies and a PS3 with around 25 games to choose from.

The kitchen has everything you'd need (2 fridges - one for drinks one for food) and each of the four bedrooms are all huge.

Would definitely stay again and will look into booking up for next year!

Fabulously Superb Villa- exceeded our expectations

  • 5 of 5

3 adults & 4 Kids (age 10, 8, 5 & 3)

The villa exceeded all our expectations! This was the best place we've ever stayed in.

From the moment we walked through the doors it had the wow factor.

The pool was amazing, really big and we spent most of our time in it with the kids, just what we needed in the scorching summer sun!

The villa had all the essentials and more, including a washing machine that proved essential with 4 Kids! The 2 fridge freezers were great, it meant we could separate food. The air con in the bedrooms proved essential in the summer heat and enabled us to get a good, cool nights sleep.

The bathrooms were lovely, very luxurious, and with 4 in the villa we were spoilt for choice.

The outside area was huge! Not only was there the pool area but also a big grassy area, ideal for the kids to have a kick of a football. There was a ping pong table and bbq also in the outside area... both proved useful especially the bbq.

The security Gates at the front of the grounds meant we had peace of mind that the kids were safe and couldn't get out.

The grounds are well looked after, we stayed for 11 nights and in that time the pool was cleaned twice and the grass was cut twice. Also the bed linen and towels were changed.

The living room was spacious with plenty of seating. The TV was massive and the play station was a hit with our 10 year old. The Dvds and books which were provided were a nice touch.

All in all the villa was amazing! We have made so many happy, fun filled.memories here that we will always cherish. We will definitely be returning!

Thank you to Lucy and Julia for the smooth booking and payment process and for all the help and good communication with my many questions over the months before the holiday.

Lovely Homely Villa With A Fantastic Pool

  • 4 of 5

We a had a brilliant fortnight at Casa Crow. You can tell the owners use the villa regularly themselves, it is so well equipped. There are also some great luxuries like the portable Bose docking station. The villa is very spacious and even if there were eight of you in the villa, there would ample space.

The highlight of the villa is outside space, the beautiful 12 metre pool, the fantastic covered verandah and plenty of good quality furniture. Then you also have the table tennis table. It was one our best holidays need I say more.
