  • 5 of 5

With 4 double bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, this villa is very spacious and well equipped. The outside area, gardens and pool are all fantastic. It was a perfect villa for our holiday and I would definitely book again. It takes around 20 minutes to walk into the town and there are lots of lovely restaurants to choose from.

Ideal Holiday Villa

  • 5 of 5

I know Carvoeiro well and visit the area at least once a year. Havin decided to hire a larger villa to treat my family, I found Casa Luessa on the Owners Direct site. The whole experience was very good throughout a Rose Baines was always very quick to respond to any questions etc. The arrival was efficiently handled and the villa itself was superb and homely. We came in the hottest period of the year but the air conditioning in all the bedrooms and the proximity of the lovely pool meant we were able to keep our cool. The place was kept immaculate by a lovely lady who came three times a week, the pool man and the gardener. Truus, the manager was available if needed. You could manage without a car, but we hired one locally for a week, which was useful, not only to go wider afield but also to get shopping from Intermarche, otherwise you would have to shop at small, and expensive, mini markets in town (and have to carry it back). Also in the high season, catching a taxi from the town back to the villa involves a long wait. If you go to the local water park west of Lagoa, ensure you take a beach umbrella. We thought they would be supplied, but that is not so and in high summer the place gets very hot. Overall, the villa is delightful, the arrangements efficient, and

A slice of Portuguese heaven

  • 5 of 5

The Casa Luessa is an idyllic getaway for those who prefer a taste of traditional Portugal. The villa was not high gloss and modern but had its own charismatic charm which was ideal for our family.

We arrived early on Saturday morning and although the villa shouldn’t have been available until the afternoon, Rose the owner kindly agreed we could access the property from 11.00am. Once inside, the accomodation provided everything our family needed and although two of the bathrooms required a little modernisation they were adequate for our needs. We were blown away with the space and facilites. It was obvious that the owner was modernising the property, which only adds to the charm of the place.

The pool was wonderful, shallow enough at one end for my 5 year old granddaughter to feel confident in the water and deep enough the other for the family water fights. We didn't pay for the extra pool heating the water was a lovely temperature every day, even in the morning

The roof top provided amazing views of the sunset and surrounding area and would have been even better if seating had been provided, but that was just my opinion.

We weren’t able to venture very far from the villa due to a knee injury in the party, but we did take taxi’s into Carvoeiro.In hindsight I would say that a car would have been an advantage, especially for the shopping trips. The taxi service was a bit hit and miss and we were taken to the Villa Luessa on a couple of occasions by mistake but that may have been down to our pronunciation.

We did walk to the local supermarket but it was basic and you really need to visit the Hypermarket which has everything you will need

The outdoor dining with the barbeque was great, we cooked most evenings using the conventional oven or the barbeque. We even manged to order a takeaway which was delivered to the villa without a problem.

We did eat out one evening at a local restuarant with a childrens play area and the food was very good.

The town is lovely with a beach and enough bars and restuarauts for a week long stay and there and several coastal walks to explore

The staff at the villa and the owner were all very helpful, Rose in particular helped to make it a great holiday from start to finish.

A fabulous holiday which all the family enjoyed, I would have no hesitation recommending this accomodation or returning again. I would also say that the photographs although good, do not reflect the true charm of this lovely slice of heaven

Expectations Met

  • 5 of 5

When you choose to stay anywhere that is new you hope you choose well. This was the case with Casa Luessa.

Rose was very helpful and answered any questions straight away before we set off and while we were there.

It was a family holiday with 8 adults and an 18 month old baby. So the first decision was how to get to the Villa from Faro Airport.We thought about renting two cars or a mini bus but this did not seem to be a viable option. So we used Faro Airport Transfers To,com , This turned out to be an excellent choice and the service they provided was excellent in both directions and we would certainly use them again.

During our stay we used local taxis for trips to the water parks or for a big supermarket shop.

The rest of the time we walked to Carvoeiro . Either to the beach or restaurants..This was about a 15-20 min walk and the only downside to this was the lack of footpaths. But if you were careful even with the baby buggy this was fine.

The beach in Carvoeiro was very clean and there was a lovely walk via a wooden clifftop route to get there if you did not want to use the busy main road.

There are plenty of places to eat and the restaurant Ele & Ela was one of the best.

The villa itself fully met our expectations and could not be faulted. Sitting on a large plot with gardens and a pool it made an ideal setting for a family holiday.

The pool was great and the gardens were attended to whilst we there as was the villla. The local support team that Rose has were very friendly and efficient.

So all in all a great place and great holiday.

Lovely villa in quiet location

  • 5 of 5

This villa did not disappoint in any way, the photographs are a true representation of this property. The villa is in a quiet location on the edge of Carveoiro, a pleasant 15 -20 minute walk to shops and restaurants. The gated pool area is lovely - we paid for pool heating, as we had a 7 month child in our party. Well worth extra as pool was at a constant 28deg and was great for both adults and baby.

I would highly recommend this villa to friends and family and suffice to say, we are already planning another visit.

The owner, Rose, is extremely good at communication and all our questions were answered almost immediately.

A gem of a property.

Beautiful villa in a great area. Villa has all large bedrooms and bathrooms. The kitchen had all our needs very well equipped especially for a large family. The garden and flowers are stunning but the best part is the pool area. A large pool with lots loungers and plush towels kids and us loved it. We had a fantasic time and would recommend this villa. Just one note, definetely hire a car. Thanks Rose.
