Plus 2 weeks Catch Up TV and a collection of 3,000 films and box sets. Free high speed internet, Hi-Fi, DVD player and outside gas BBQ.
Only 10 minutes from the charming coastal town and marina of Vila Real de Santo Antonio or the golden sands of Praia Verde with miles of unspoilt coastline. The Eastern Algarve is still rustic, quiet & authentically Portuguese, but has fantastic beaches, beautiful countryside and so many good restaurants.

35 minute drive from Faro Airport, Castro Marim Golf & Country Club is a unique location in the tranquil Eastern Algarve. A small development of 50 villas, surrounded by a magnificent 27 hole golf course and nature reserve.

Jillsvilla is in a prime spot, just 200 yards from the stunning new clubhouse, driving range, chipping green and practice putting greens. The patio and pool are south facing, enjoying front line views over the 10th fairway.
We bought and furnished our pride & joy in Castro Marim G&CC for our own retirement. We chose Jillsvilla because it is on flat level ground which looked safer for children and had a full size pool and a larger patio. It was just a shell of concrete at the time which worked out great because we were able to choose really good quality kitchen & bathroom furniture and add the little extras that make all the difference. Jill is an artist and her flair for interior design gives the villa a stylish feel for all. I'm sure you will enjoy it.
Should you decide to stay at Jillsvilla, we will send you a full pack of information about the local area - best restaurants, things to do, local golf courses, nearest beaches, sightseeing ideas, other sports facilities, taxis, car hire advice, etc.

We also have 2 sets of golf clubs, practice balls and size 8 & 9 golf shoes, plus loads of lilos and children's beach stuff which our guests are very welcome to borrow. There's even a couple of umbrellas and some ponchos in case the dreaded rain arrives. For the children, there's a cot/play pen with pillow and bedding, changing mat, a high chair, fold up buggy and a beach tent. Beach towels are also provided. Plus a good selection of books, card & board games & children's toys.

We prefer to rent to non-smokers and adults or small families to maintain quality and a peaceful atmosphere.
In addition to the central AC in all rooms, we supply an electric fan for each bedroom. For winter guests, there is an electric fire & oil filled radiator in the lounge.

As a duty of care for our guests, we have smoke alarms, fire blanket, 3 fire extinguishers and a medical kit. As required by Portuguese law, Jillsvilla has been granted a Rental Licence by the Ministry of Tourism - reg no 7005/AL, plus an energy certificate Class C ref SCE95367939.

The 8m x 4m private pool is cleaned 3 times a week and has a spacious terrace overlooking the 10th fairway. The south facing patio is equipped with a shower, Beefeater gas BBQ, 6 sun loungers, a large electric awning and 4 sun umbrellas. The round rattan effect dining table has 6 padded chairs.

In 2020 we added a new luxurious "chill out area" at the golf course end of the patio, complete with sofas, pergola and water feature. Ideal for your first coffee of the day, or your last beer.

The large kitchen is fully equipped with fan oven, electric hob, microwave, toaster, American fridge freezer with icemaker, slow cooker, food processor, coffee maker, plate warmer, etc. The utility room has a washing machine, tumble dryer and steam iron/ironing table.
All linen and towels, plus beach towels, are provided and changed weekly. Cleaning is also once a week.

All bedrooms are ensuite and offer total privacy. There is a hairdryer, alarm clock, fan and spare pillows in each bedroom.

Cancellation Policy: The 25% booking deposit and 75% final payment, due 8 weeks before your holiday, are non refundable if you cancel your booking. However we always try to help in such circumstances and will offer a full refund if we are able to rent Jillsvilla to another guest. Alternatively we will offer you a full credit on a later booking, subject to availability and applicable pricing.
We also advise taking out comprehensive travel insurance to cover your flight and villa rental costs.

We do everything we can to hep you have a great holiday at Jillsvilla.
Best wishes,
Ken & Jill

Perfect Stay

By Steve Titheridge on 29-Aug-2020

A truly lovely Villa, spotlessly clean, very well equipped, and in a dream location (if your a Golfing nut like me). Very nice pool and peaceful snug area at the bottom of the garden overlooking the Atlantic Golf Course.

The Castro Marim Golf Clubhouse is 5 minutes walk. The restaurant serves excellent food and has magnificent views of the Algarve Coast and Spain.

My wife and I both agree we couldn't have chosen a more perfect place to stay. It was our first time in the Eastern Algarve so the information pack very useful.

A big thank you to the owners for sharing their beautiful home with us. We look forward to returning this Christmas.

A wonderful home away from home

By Scott & Margaret on 31-Aug-2019

This is the second time we have stayed at Jillsvilla and we have booked again for next year so that should tell you all you need to know.
Ken and Jill just have the perfect villa, with everything you will need so less to pack for your trip. There are plenty of beach towels as well as some perfectly decent golf clubs along with a number of practice balls that you can use at the practice area which is only a couple of minutes walk away. The driving range is also a couple of minutes walk away and the clubhouse a minute further down the road so perfect for a drink in the evening.
The private pool area is vast, with lots of sunbeds and brollies to hide away from the sun when it get's a bit intense.
It's BBQ every night when we are here with a large gas BBQ that's so easy to use.
inside the villa the TV is great, with Sky and Amazon Prime Video (no need to miss the football on Sky just because your away from home). WiFi throughout the villa including by the pool.
The location is quite which is exactly what we are looking for from a summer holiday. The golf course is challenging and it's never been that busy which is ideal for my level of golf!
A great place to spend some time relaxing in nice weather in a villa that's got all the things you take for granted when your at home - really a home away from home.

Jillsvilla, Algarve

By Joe Law on 18-Aug-2019

Excellent Villa in a lovely location on a golf resort. Three good sized bedrooms all ensuite. Large lounge and well appointed kitchen, facilities first class. Good size terrace with swimming pool. Ideal location for touring the area. One of the best holidays we have had in the Algarve.
Ken and Jill are extremely helpful from the time you book the villa to the time you go on holiday. You will not be disappointed.

What a wonderful Villa

By Margaret & Ronnie Bissell on 03-Aug-2018

Jillsvilla definitely has the WOW factor. Our first impression was that we loved it. This continued throughout our stay. The quality of the furniture and fittings was excellent and the decor very classy including Jill's personal works of art. Even the curtains and bed linen were fine in style.
We went with our daughter, son in law and two grandchildren and the layout of the villa was very suited as it had three ensuite bathrooms.
The location was stunning and we all enjoyed visiting some of the places that were suggested and clearly described in the information file you have put together for guests. Thank you so much for such a wonderful family holiday.
Kind Regards

Great Villa/Great Location

By Richard Forsyth on 21-Jun-2018

Just back from a great trip to Jill and Ken's villa. From the moment we booked the information given was first class and allowed us to plan our holiday and some of the things we wanted to do, without the usual searching when we got there. The villa and location were stunning and had everything we needed for a great holiday. the pictures on the website do not do the villa justice, its so much bigger and more well equiped than we had expected. The clubhouse is a 5 minute walk from the villa and is has lovely terraces with great views. We enjoyed a few drinks and a couple of lunches there. You are a 5 minute drive from the main road and nearest supermarket, but this is not an inconvenience. There are plenty lovely restaurants locally both in Portugal and into Spain, which again is just a short drive away. The Eastern Algarve is a wee bit quieter than further West, but the beaches are every bit as nice if not better and the small towns and villages are a lot less commercialised.

Overall, i couldn't fault both the villa and also the efforts made by Jill and Ken to ensure everything ran smoothly. I don't think we will look past Castro Marim on our next trip to the Algarve.

Wonderful accomodation in beautiful setting

By Stuart C, Glasgow on 18-Sep-2017

We stayed at Jill and Ken's villa in July 2017 and we had a fantastic holiday. The villa has everything you need for the perfect vacation. The villa is stunning and all rooms are very spacious and beautifully decorated. The pool area is fantastic with plenty of room to sun bathe on the loungers provided. Although it is situated on a golf complex, it should not be looked upon as only a golfer's holiday. Jill and Ken could not be more helpful and they were both more than happy to advise on all aspects of the property and the local towns and cities. We had a wonderful time and, hopefully, we will have an opportunity to return. Thanks again to Jill and Ken for ensuring we had the best holiday.

5 stars out of 5 for everything

By Darren C. Bristol. on 13-Sep-2017

Thanks for letting us use the villa. It was a lovely break and the family loved how nice & clean it was. My nan fell in love with your pictures. Can you please paint us one.
We never needed for anything - brill information pack on the local area. Villa is fully equipped for a self catering holiday and the clubhouse staff were friendly & helpful.
We rate it 5 stars out of 5 on everything. Already planning to return on a family trip next year. Thank you.

Stunning Villa in a wonderful location

By Dominic R on 09-Sep-2017

Stunning Villa in a wonderful location

Our family all agreed that this was by far the best holiday we have ever been on, no small part of this was due to the quality of Jill & Ken's amazing Villa.

Right from the initial contact with the owners everything was easy & the information pack sent before going was full of not only Villa info but a great guide to the surrounding areas with great tips on what to do & see and where to eat etc.

The Villa is amazing and the photos can only give an idea of how good it is, the pool is lovely and was cleaned regularly throughout our stay. It was spotlessly clean upon arrival and everything was very well maintained and laid out. The owners provide many extras for the pool, beach & golf course too.

The course club house is a very short walk and has an excellent bar & restaurant so unlike many other villas there is no need to drive if you just want to eat or drink out (the bar happy hour between 5-7pm is good!!) and there are many other places around too and a hire car is essential to make best use of this area of the Algarve.

The star of the holiday however was the villa itself, we will be back!

Stunning View with Perfect Owners

By Sammi M, Gloucester on 09-Sep-2017

WoW where do i start ! This villa is absolutely delightful, we stayed here in August for 12 days. It looked lovely in the photo's but in 'real life' it is even more splendid. It is huge, beautifully decorated, was spotlessly clean and a pool to die for which was also very clean and cleaned a few times during our stay - a must for us, a clean pool. The villa is very well equipped, everything there you could possibly think of and more ! Its situated in a beautiful area of the Algarve with alot of facilities nearby. We hired a car which i would say is a must and makes life alot easier to get out and about, get to the supermarkets etc. The booking in process was really easy and Ken and Jill answered all my questions quickly. Cant recommend this villa enough, we will definately return ! Thank you Ken and Jill for everything

Great Villa - thoughtful owners

By Jeannie B, Staffordshire on 09-Sep-2017

Recently returned from a short break at this superbly equipped villa where the Portugese weather was unfortunately wet.

Luckily, due to the great information about the area we received from Jill, the owner, it didn't stop us having a good time.

The golf course is excellent with a varied selection of rounds made up from the three different nine hole courses.

Didn't get to use the lovely pool due to the poor weather but it would be very inviting in warmer times.

Apart from the villa itself, what really made a short break better was the essential items we were encouraged to use by Jill - the sort of thing you usually have to find on your fist day from the local supermarket.

Would recommend to anyone looking for a quiet stay within easy travel distance from the airport.

Wonderful Luxurious Villa in a Beautiful Setting

By Debbie S, Fulham on 09-Sep-2017

This was our second stay at Jillsvilla and it was better than the first! The villa itself is spacious, luxurious and Jill and Ken encouraged us to make ourselves at home by using the beach towels/games, golf clubs etc. All the rooms were spotless on our arrival and lovely fresh linen adorned the comfortable beds! The outside space and pool are wonderful for spending lazy days and the new table and chairs on the patio provide a lovely setting for evening drinks and a barbeque. The villa is in a wonderful location with easy reach of the local village and also San Antonio do Porto, which has an atmospheric square and is packed with good eateries. It is a short ride by car to Spain where there are lovely beaches and reasonably cheap well-stocked supermarkets. There are plenty of lovely beaches nearby - Cabeco was one of our favourites as it has a lovely fish restaurant (Sem Espinhas) and the beach is clean and spacious even at the weekends. As a family of four with ages ranging from 55 to 6, we had a very comfortable and enjoyable stay here and would highly recommend it! One of the key selling points is the customer service that Jill and Ken (the owners) provide - especially when it comes to providing local knowledge about restaurants, outings and the facilities at the villa. Thank you so much for a wonderful holiday!

Perfect Villa, stunning pool, great location!

By Robbie G, Middlesex on 09-Sep-2017

From Booking to departure everything we wanted and more! . Jillsvilla is stunning inside & out. The listing is accurate in every way photos really don't do it justice much bigger & brighter in real life. The villa was exceptionally clean all towels and linen are good quality. The pool & villa were both cleaned during our stay with no disruption to our stay.

Jill & Ken the owners provided fantastic customer service during the booking process and afterwards they also gave us lots of extra useful info! This was our 2nd stay in this lovely villa & we will definitely be returning for a 3rd visit.

I would recommend this 5 star villa to anyone who wants a peaceful relaxing holiday in beautiful surroundings!

The clubhouse is a few minutes walk away, the courses are in great condition & food in the clubhouse ie exceptional!

We had a hire car & I would recommend this, there are lots of lovely beaches and restaurants within just a short drive, Spain is about a 15 minute drive.

Very very happy to have found Jilsvilla :)

Wonderfull Villa !

By Paul S, England on 09-Sep-2017

We have recently returned from a 11 night stay at this fantastic villa.

The photos on the website do not do this place justice, it's quality throughout, lovely and clean and part of a very well kept, lovely golf complex.

We found lots of nice touches that made this villa a fantastic base in the Algarve, from the netting shutters on the doors and windows, to allow lots of air into the place, although the air con units were fab too if you needed them, to the quality Bosch appliances in the very well equipped kitchen.

Also, lots of additional stuff that you can use, like the golf clubs, beach equipment etc.

Jill and Ken, the owners, are also very helpful nothing is too much trouble for them, they supplied lots of useful information on the villa, and the area.

As for the area, it's in a lovely golf complex, the views from the clubhouse, 2 minute walk from the villa, where we sat and had a couple of BBQ's from the balcony, are simply fantastic.

The villa is only 5 mins from Castro Marim, 12 mins drive from wonderful beaches at Praia Verde, and we also drove into Spain, which is also only 5 mins drive across the river. We visited Ayamonte, in Spain, which had a lovely area for shops and restaurants, and a nice marina area.

There was also a lovely Irish gent who owned the villa next door, who looked after the pool for us whilst we were there, again another added bonus !

I can highly recommend this villa for a fantastic base for a holiday. it's good value for money, in a quieter part of the Algarve, but close to wonderful beaches, and lovely little town areas, all close by.

Loved the villa, loved the area....superb, superb, superb !!
