The villa appears to have been redecorated recently as it looked really fresh and it made a fantastic base for our exploration of the western Algarve. The scenery is amazing and the local (quiet) beaches are even better with long stretches of sand each with nice beach-side restaurants. There are good, friendly restaurants within walking distance of the villa and others in Aljezur and beyond. We will definitely return.
It was nice to welcome a member of the clan to our villa and we look forward to your return.
Lovely villa in a nice quiet area
The Villa is in a quiet place, away from the busy southern Algarve. Local beaches are fantastic, and great for surfing/messing in the waves, with beautiful golden sand. The villa was very clean, with all the necessary pots, pans and home from home necessities. The pool was good, and cleaned while we were there. The villa is very well thought out, beds are great and bathrooms very nice with good showers! Locally there are some good restaurants; Joses in particular whilst looking like a football bar has some really good food (wild prawns highly recommended). For a more upmarket experience O Paulo in Arrifana is very good, with fantastic service and great views. Walking to the beach at Monte Clerigo is possible, but young ones might struggle. However the clifftop walks in the vicinity are easily reached from the villa and offer great views, the chance to see wildlife and experience lovely sunsets and starscapes. Highly recommended!
Thank you. We look forward to welcoming you back to Casa do Pinheiro in the future.
June fortnight in western Algarve
Spacious and airy villa close to glorious beaches of the western Algarve.
Great half term break
Great property - excellent condition, well furnished, well decorated, well equipped and clean/well maintained. Listing described the property really well. We were very well looked after by Paul (local agent). We visited Aljezur, Arrifana, Lagos, Monte Clerigo and Sagres amongst other places. Local beaches were great and the cliffs, just a 15 minute walk from the house, were really dramatic. Good local restaurants. Would happily recommend.
We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay.
We felt very comfortable during our stay. The house is beautiful, clean, neat, adequately equipped and lovely furnished. The pool is great, and after long trips in the evening it was relaxing. Gill and Paul (the site managers) provided a good service, were always available and very helpful in awkward situations. We loved the family friendly beaches Odeceixe, Amoreira, Monte Clérigo and Arrifana. The restaurants around are all recommended, because the food there is delicious and fresh. We were never disappointed. The church, the market and the castle of Aljezur are worth for a visit. We'll be back!
We're delighted you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again soon. John & Melanie
Idyllic villa in a great location
Casa do Pinheiro was a great villa for our family holiday. It's spacious and had all the amenities we needed, as well as being in a superb location, just a short drive to the beach. Then kids loved the pool, and we loved the peace and quiet. Our week flew by and we all agreed we would love to stay here again. Thank you
It was nice to see the pictures of your wedding party on Monte Clerigo beach and we're delighted that you enjoyed your stay. John & Mel
Set in the midst of a national park, the villa is located at the end of an easy drive from Faro airport or Lisbon when the flight prices are cheaper! Also, just 30 minutes away is the beautiful town of Lagos with its fantastic marina surrounded by restaurants, shops and bars with street entertainment throughout the summer in the old town centre.
The villa is within easy reach of five golf courses or, if you prefer, shopping in the retail parks of Portimao. If you're feeling more energetic, the water parks around Albufeira are great fun!
For motorsport fans, the villa is conveniently located approximately 30 minutes away from the new Algarve Motor Park (Autódromo Internacional do Algarve). A full programme of events is available from the circuit's web site.
