"An amazing place to pass a peaceful and relaxing summer vacation."
My wife and I visited the villa with our two adult children and their partners and we had an excellent time. The villa is extremely well equipped with everything that one may need. If your idea of a relaxing evening is to self cater the kitchen has everything you will need and the barbecue is marvellous and with a big fridge there can be an endless supply of cold drinks. (definitely needed in August!). The location is fantastic being peaceful but not too remote. As another visitor has commented the location is brilliant with all facilities being reasonably local with beautiful beaches just 20 minutes away. The Portuguese are lovely, being very polite and friendly and of course the weather is amazing.
The pool was warm and sparkling when we were there and the villa has two locations on the pool terrace where you can sit outside. We tried to play badminton and table tennis but it was too hot, even in the evening, so a cold beer always took precedence.
We've had some less than pleasing holidays recently but our stay at Casa das Oliveiras Velhas was more than perfect. I would recommend this property to anyone of any age and level of mobility.
Many thanks for your review and we are so pleased that you all had a good holiday. Also thankyou for your new booking next year. Look forward to welcom ing you again

"great holiday at a lovely villa"
Delightful villa set in a peaceful and private location. The accommodation is very spacious making it easy for larger family groups and friends to stay. The bedrooms and bathrooms are roomy and well appointed. The kitchen is well equipped and the sitting room is a great space for any evenings you want to stay in. There is plenty of outside space for lazing by the pool, eating on the terrace or having barbeque.
And all very private. Not overlooked by any other properties.
It's a 5 minute drive into the very pleasant market town of Loule which has a lovely fish market and an excellent supermarket on the edge of town.
Wonderful beaches and golf courses are just ten minutes drive away.
A real find for either Winter breaks or family holiday in the Summer
We had a lovely time here which included a drive to Seville on a quiet motorway and less than 2 hours away.
We will definitely be staying again sometime soon!
Pleased to know that you had a good time at the Villa and enjoyed your time on the Algarve. Look forward to welcoming you back soon!

"A modern villa with character in a tranquil position"
We firstly stayed in this villa November 2012 to enjoy some extremely pleasant winter sun and journeyed to various easily accessible towns along the main coastal road - strolling the seafront at Quarteira, soaking up the character of Silves and enjoying the unspoilt sandy beaches at Burgau and Zavial.
Our June visit with teenagers in tow included a day at the waterpark at Quarteira which proved to be good value and evening visits to Lagos for the plentiful restaurants and lively atmosphere.
The villa itself is spacious and provides every modern convenience required in a peaceful setting but with supermarkets within a short drive.
The pool was was extremely welcoming in the heat of June and of a good size.
Two relaxing holidays which satisfied all the family needs.
So pleased that you enjoyed your return visit and that it worked well with your teenager children. Hope to see you next year.

"Perfect 3 generation family week."
The villa is beautiful, comfortable and with all mod cons in a picturesque setting up in the hills a short drive from the coast and also from Faro. We rarely left the villa during our week as it was so easy to buy all provisions from Loule just 10 minutes away & so agreeable to amuse ourselves in the pool or playing badminton or table tennis. The pool with shallow steps at one end is great for a 2 year old while it is deep enough to dive in at the other. There are plenty of books to read & UK TV channels if you want. It is like a home-from-home.
Thank you for your positive review. Its good to know that the house and pool works well for all ages. Hope to see you again next year.
