Description from owner


Guests at Casa do Limao enjoy exclusive, private use of the villa, pool and gardens. The property has been described by our guests as 'home from home' as it is so well equipped for a comfortable stay.

As well as providing guests with a fantastic base for a sunshine break - our log fired central heating makes the property a great choice for a winter break too! Popular as a romantic getaway and we also attract many house hunters in the off peak months.

The light and airy lounge diner has a TV with DVD player, and Google Chromecast (download the App to your phone or laptop) so that you can stream films etc.

There is comfortable seating and a selection of books, games and DVDs to help in relaxing over a glass or two of local wine!

Excellent internet access and efficient central heating, operated by a log fire.

There is seating for 6 people at the dining table and the bespoke kitchen has everything you could need for self catering in style!

Upstairs, the property has 2 double rooms, one with a kingsize bed, the other with a double bed. Bedding and towels are provided.

The remaining bedroom has a bunk bed: on request there is provision for a further bed with a single 'guest' put up bed and spare bedding. With this extra fold out bed, the property will sleep 7. We also have a travel cot, suitable for babies and toddlers.

The double room is ensuite with a large shower, two wash basins and toilet, and has a double door to the small outside balcony from which there are pretty views of the village and distant mountain range.

The family bathroom on the same floor has a bath, over-bath shower, a wash basin and toilet.

Outside, there is a private courtyard area with dining area for eating 'alfresco', a wonderful built in BBQ and a large barn which, apart from providing shade in the summer months, houses a games room (complete with pool and football tables), a utility room with a washing machine and ironing facilities and a w7c shower room. There is outside lighting for both the house and barn making it possible to use the courtyard as an additional living space in the evenings as well as the daytime!

The private 8x4 metre swimming pool, can be illuminated at night, with its pretty patio, this area provides you with a great space for dining, sunbathing and cooling off!

Owner's reply: Thank you for your lovely review Nadine - I know from your emails that you enjoyed your break at Casa do Limao! I am fairly sure that the petrol smell has now gone, as it was a treatment for the stone work that was applied a couple of weeks before your visit, but hope that it didn't affect your stay too much - it sounds as though you were able to make great use of the courtyard and alfresco dining and relaxation opportunities that it offers. You would be most welcome to stay again in the future! Kind regards, Marta
