"A GREAT PLACE FOR RELAXING"
A lovely villa, clean and well presented. Pleasant locally based villa management support on hand if needed. If you like the thought of relaxing in a peaceful setting, whilst visiting busier areas when you feel like it, this is the place to stay. Provided young children are supervised, the upstairs balcony and pool area are safe.
Villa is set inland above village on hillside overlooking the sea, with nice pool and terrace area with BBQ. Car is essential, but shops are convenient distance. Good base for reaching popular locations. Some good restaurants nearby.

"Peaceful villa in cute little Portuguese village"
Found Casa Nova a very relaxing place to be - surrounded by fruit trees (we even managed to pick some fresh almonds to garnish the sardines we'd cooked on the barbecue) and its hill-top perch gives views all the way out to the ocean. The pool was (just) warm enough to swim in when we visited early May. It's only a 15 minute walk to the village of Bolliqueime which is also very cute. Recommend dinner at the piri piri chicken place. The service from Sarah (property owner) and Remco (property manager) were fantastic. Sarah provided us with tips of places to eat and even texted the morning before we left to wish us a nice trip. Remco was also full of good tips for food and activities in the area. We will be coming back here again.
