"Perfect in Every Way"
This villa is perfect for everyone. I travelled with my family, Hubby, 9yo, 6yo and 1yo along with another couple.
Fintan and Pauline have created a perfect home for you to holiday in. There is nothing you could possibly need that is not here.
I would like to make special mention of the 'starter pack' that is provided, milk, bread, wine, beer, cheese, ham, rolls fruit......absolutely perfect on arrival!
The outside area is beautiful and inviting. The pool is gorgeous. We loved picking the lemons and adding them to our copious G&Ts!
The area is peaceful and beautiful. Espargal is easy to find from Faro. We visited the local restaurant that F & P recommended and it was excellent and very reasonable.
I have been visiting Portugal for 25 years, but would love to return here despite my uncle having a place in the algarve!
Thanks guys, it was lovely!
Thank you for your review,glad you enjoyed your stay,maybe next time a longer stay and you can enjoy the area and lovely walks.

"For a restful & relaxing holiday, Casa Mack (and it's owners) won't let you down."
Although only 30/40 minutes drive from Faro Airport and some of the beaches of the Algarve, Casa Mack's location in a small hamlet ensures that visitors always have peace and tranquility. The owners, Pauline & Fintan, are 2 of the friendliest and most helpful people you could wish to meet, and are on hand not only to welcome you to their villa but in case any problem should arise during your stay. The villa itself is clean, comfortable and spacious and is an excellent choice for those who wish to holiday away from the busier resorts and yet be within reasonable driving distance of them. There a several good restaurants in and around the area and Fintan will be only too pleased to point them out to you. This was our second visit in 2 years to Casa Mack and if I were to return to the Algarve it would my first choice again. Our 20-years-old granddaughter came with us this time and she would endorse everything I have said.
