Villa in Gorjoes, Santa Barbara De Nexe, Central Algarve, Portugal - Peaceful Location 5 Miles From Loule
Hi We live in England. We spend many of our holidays in the Algarve and built Casa Campina with our friends as a joint venture in 2009. We have high standards and hope that you will find our villa exceeds your expectations. Please feel free to contact us for fuller details.
Owner purchased this Villa in 2009
Why Owner chose Gorj천es
We built our villa after careful consideration about location. We wanted to be in a quieter location but with quick and easy access to all of the Algarve. We love the relaxed way of life on the Algarve and the variety that a villa in a secluded location in the hills gives us. Our villa faces south so benefits from a lot of sun in the summer. Consequently we have air-conditioning throughout. We find that Vale de Lobo and Vilamoura marina are best visited in the evening so prefer the convenience of a pool side holiday during the day.
What makes this Villa unique
The property is very private with plenty of upstairs sun bathing areas. The kitchen is well equipped but we know not everyone wants to cook when on holiday. The area has lots of bar restaurants with exceptional value food. The famous Luis dos Ferangoes is in San Bras Alportel just over the next hill from us where you can mix with the locals for a great night out. Loule with its famous markets is just 5 minutes away. Here you will find a cosmopolitan town with everything you would expect. A brand new Continente supermarket is on the edge of Loule on the way to our villa where you can get hot food to take away if you land at night time in Faro. Naturally the Algarve is popular among golfers and all of the famous courses are within a 30 minute drive from the villa.

Three generations of our family have stayed at this villa twice and each time have enjoyed our stay. The owner John has always been helpful. Had no contact with the property manager as no need. We will definitely stay again.
Thanks for the kind review its always pleasing to know that you and your family had a great holiday and enjoyed the villa.
An outstanding place to stay
Our party of 8 (4 adults and 4 kids) absolutely loved our stay in this beautiful, luxurious villa.
As has been said in previous reviews, the photos really don’t do it justice. It’s large, light, airy and luxurious.
The layout is great, with a substantial sized kitchen, living area, dining area and massive hallway (with foozball table) on the ground floor with 1 of the 4 bedrooms as well. The outdoor spaces are massive too, with more dining space, loads of outdoor chairs, recliners and parasols to enjoy by the pool. The outdoor BBQ is great and the gardens are lovely.
Upstairs it’s equally generous with the remaining 3 bedrooms plus bathrooms and en-suites. There is even roof terrace areas to enjoy the sun!
Communication with the owner was excellent throughout the booking process and even though we had a couple of minor issues whilst staying there (a water leak and toilet flushing problem) all were sorted out extremely quickly through the local property management company who were most helpful.
The property boasts ample parking for 3 or 4 cars and pretty much everything you’d need is provided.
This is a beautiful house, thoughtfully designed, well maintained and in a lovely location. I can not recommend it enough and would happily return for another visit (indeed, going by the guest book, many people have!)
If you’re after a villa just outside of Faro, close enough to travel to most of the popular places in the Algarve by a short car journey, and you want some peaceful seclusion away from busy towns and resorts, this is the ideal villa.
Lovely house. It was perfect for family holiday around a great pool.
Beautiful property and a great stay
You really cannot go wrong booking this beautiful house. The owner and management company are excellent in their care of the guests. I would've given it 6* if it was possible. Thank you everyone.
Gorgeous villa, with amble space for 10 people
This villa exceeded my expectations, it was clearly built for someone to live in full time in the future as the quality of the interior and exterior areas was really high. The layout was superb, with so much space in all areas, including bedrooms. The pool and outside areas were really beautiful. The landlord was really helpful and responsive, overall really couldn't fault it, and the kitchen was really well equipped for self catering. Thank you so much, and I would love to come back again some other time.
Thanks very much for your kind feedback Its always good to know that you have enjoyed your stay as much as we do. More than welcome to stay again in the future.
All the best
Nine people of three generations from 5 months to 60+ had a great time. The best equipped, most comfortable villa we have stayed in. A must is to eat at the Le Marquis Restaurant at Palhagueira just down the road. A great pizza can be had at Pizzaria Milano in Loule. Shopping at Continente is reasonable where you can get a daily paper. Meat at Intermarche the other side of Loule is well priced.
