Ales well arranged, accommodation perfect, immediate environment was not nice, however, played no role in our decision to choose this villa.

Cramer Oct 2019

Everything was great. As expected and described. A little further to the beach, but with a rental car no problem.

Van Der Heide May 2019

What a friendly welcome at a beautiful holiday, which is fully equipped. The environment was very nice, but we were happy that we had a car available. All in all highly recommended.

Beukelman Sep 2018

Algra Aug 2017

Great holiday home with great views. The distance to the airport was less than half an hour. The reception was very friendly and correct. The bed turned out to be (too) hard but a good solution was found in no time. All in all, had a very nice holiday.

Schoenmaekers Jul 2017

Wonderful holiday! Blessed garden with swimming pool. Only downside are the very hard beds and a washbasin that leaked! Further everything fine in order.

Preusting Jul 2017

Beautiful house and beautiful garden. Beds very hard. Inventory may use an upgrade. Too bad that the lower floor with bedrooms has no air conditioning.

Steemers May 2017

Our flight times were very early, which meant that we were too early at the destination. This was kindly resolved by host Paula who made sure we left our bags and could stay in the garden if desired. We have indeed left the suitcases, but we have spent the time exploring the area. The villa lived well with what was described and certainly the view was beautiful. Even in the evening we had a beautiful view over the valley and the lights on the mountain across the road. In the villa, a book was left by the owner with information about the area and some catering facilities. We have used this regularly and to the fullest satisfaction. We have had a fantastic stay here and Portugal and Villa Carrossel are certainly for repetition.

Drenthel May 2017

Lovely quiet and spacious villa. Greater than expected initially. Kindly welcome, we consider coming back here more often.

Peeters Apr 2017

What a fantastic villa. The local manager and the housekeeper are very helpful.Normal space, clean and many extra's like the washing machine, dishwasher, barbecue, pool and garden house with internal barbecue. The location is very quiet on top of a hill. You have to drive a bit For some "tourist" entertainment. A supermarket is nearby.

Hutter Oct 2016

Very nice reception by owner couple. receive detailed explanations of the house and technical details. In the house we immediately felt comfortable. It is well maintained and has spacious rooms. The location away from the village on a hill is quiet and has complied with our request.

Klein Goldewijk Apr 2016

Lovely house with beautiful landscaped yard, orchard and terraces everywhere, in the wind, out of the wind, in the sun, in the shade under trees. Even with a barbecue house to be able to barbecue in bad weather. All tip-top shape. Also in the house several rooms so you do not have to sit in each other's way. Cool pool.

Snijders Apr 2016

As beautiful as the picture 's is, it is in reality! Spacious home. Fully furnished with many Dutch books and games for all ages. Quiet location, there are almost no cars "s past. Large garden with a nice pool and seating areas everywhere. The basic stuff is in the kitchen. Restaurants and supermarkets are close by. For us, definitely worth repeating!

Beauprez Sep 2015

The villa is spacious, nicely decorated, equipped with everything you need on holiday, including walking and tourist information about the area. There was once someone clean the house and the sheets and towels changed, 2x someone to clean the pool, and the gardener was several times stopped by. Very good service and very friendly people all! The area is nice, there is a lot to visit and the villa is a short drive from the shops, other villages, Faro Airport. The only downside is that the house lies just below an electricity pole, which is sometimes a whole day humming, but it has given us little disturbed we reasonably have made some trips. We had a very nice, relaxing holiday!

Tjan Jul 2014

We had a nice, comfortable week in this house. It was very spacious and well laid out for a family of 6 and kept very neat and clean. We are decently received and escorted during stay.the view was breathtaking and despite its location in the mountains, just to drive towards the beaches. Thanks for the good facilities in the house was tidy and well equipped kitchen and TV did fine. The Internet was unfortunately not strong enough for 4Children sometimes their necessary communication wanted to do. We were impressed by the many terraces around the house. And table tennis is frequently used. Nicely put down in the shade. What was nice, it was not too hot inside, but a fan is nevertheless very pleasant when slapen.wij like to come back once in this house.

Hoffmann Aug 2012

Great country; coast with terrible Bebauung.Portugal makes the same mistake as Spain.

Oerlemans Jul 2012

The environment was new to us and proved a pleasant surprise. Clean, good accessibility, friendly people. More than enough Western, everything is available / for sale without touristy to be. Yet authentic Portuguese. Portuguese speaking good English and / or it is good to do to understand each other. Temperature was good, sometimes seemed a bit too warm but by the proximity of the ocean is still often a pleasant breeze. "At night it cools down nice, perfect for a restful night.
