Just as described... rural but close to amenities... it certainly is !! Short walk to shops and good restaurants yet you feel you're in the middle of the countryside. Homely and spacious villa with a great pool in a fantastic location. Will definitely return.
Firstly can I say the booking process with this owner was professional ,informative and very helpful. As for the villa well comfy, spacious in a beautiful setting and ideal for a rest in a peaceful location. The villa is ideal for either couples or small family’s with everything you need for a break away and to keep children occupied , we spent half a day exploring the villa and it’s cupboards finding everything you may need and more . The villa is cool even in August and has air con if required although we didn’t need it. The kitchen facilities are fantastic but not a patch on the awesome power shower which was well received after a day in the sun . The whole place was spotlessly clean thanks to the team of cleaners and the pool guys . As for the location well if you want loads of bars and entertainment go to old town it’s 8 euro in a Uber and is a great night out but stay away from the new town strip trust me. 5 minutes walk from a very Portuguese town with a good choice of cheap bars and quality restaurants. We were going to hire a car but didn’t need one as the taxis were efficient and cheap and if you want to do any trips the companies will pick you up from the local town at a minimal extra charge. The aventura buggy driving experience was brilliant We spent many evenings in front of the bbq with locally sourced products bought from Aldi which is dirt cheap and 5 minutes walk. The wine is quality and for nothing 1-65 per bottle Overall this place is brilliant we will return probably sooner than we expected thanks absolutely fantastic place
I've been coming to Casa Dos Leoes for nearly 10 years now and it is a haven of peace and tranquility in a beautiful location that feels completely rural yet has every convenience you need right on your doorstep. The villa is set in the middle of a shallow farming valley, adjacent to the Salgados nature reserve at the end of a row of small villas in the middle of farm land with one house behind which you hardly notice except from the roof. From almost every aspect all one can see are fields and cork trees and is completely private. The wildlife on open view is spectacular, whether it be the hoopoes roosting in the fields behind, the swallows and swifts taking a drink from the gorgeous pool or the skylarks singing in the morning. It really is a peaceful haven perfect for families with young children or those like me seeking a completely relaxed holiday with nothing to worry about beyond whether to have dinner at the local restaurant or whether to have a BBQ. The interior is basic yet comfortable, and has everything you need to be totally self catered, whilst within a short stroll of good Portuguese cafe's and other restaurants of every kind. Personally, I like the interior because when I'm slathered in suncream or dripping from the pool, I can use all the facilities without worrying about damaging "posh" soft furnishings. It also has internet and wi-fi so I can do everything I could do from home. A car used to be essential but with the advent of uber less so, but would still recommend hiring a car to give the freedom to explore the surrounding countryside, fishing villages and other attractions. There are a range of supermarkets within 5-10 minutes drive of the villa and for those seeking more entertainment there are waterparks, marinas and all manner of beach entertainment and activities from paragliding and jet skiing to the more sedate dolphin watching or sunset cruises all within a short drive. For nightlife, Albufeira Old Town is a 10/15 minute drive away. There is a new complex opened a short distance away which you cannot see but does once in a while have the ubiquitous Karaoke but that has only intruded once in the very high season - most times all you hear is the wind in the trees, the birds singing and the pool gently lapping. My favourite is evening BBQ enjoyed on the roof watching the sun set (and the sunsets are truly glorious). The perfect place for a relaxing holiday away from it all yet with everything you can possibly need.
