The Place To Be
By David Etherington on 09-Aug-2019
Our Stay at CVB was an exceptional experience.
From booking the Villa, to arriving back home was so professionally organized by the owners Robert & Manuel.
The Villa is fabulous, clean, roomy and the pool is brilliant and refreshing. The barbecue was used every 2nd day, and the poolside loungers were very comfy.
Ana who looks after the villa for Robert & Manuel, was so helpful and is available to answer any queries you may have, and obviously has a vast knowledge of the area and its surroundings,
Air con was a blessing, as the temperatures were very high which made are sleeps comfortable.
My advice is to book a car if you decide to stay at CVB, we did and it made everything so convenient.
We will definitely be going back with out hesitation.

stayed at Casa Vista Bonita end July/early August - weather was glorious, could keep bedrooms cool with air con :-), plenty of room within the villa, had everything we needed, pool and outside area was lovely, felt very relaxing, with beautiful views to wake up to. Local intermarche just a short drive down the road. Lots of restaurants that were on the recommend list, so tried plenty of these, our favourite being at Mesquita. Visited Fuseta beach - highly recommended, a simple boat ride over. Took a trip to Loule on the Saturday to visit the market - gets very humid, just to note! Arranging our holiday was very straight forward, and everything made very easy, would highly recommend.

We’ve stayed in the villa for a week,and it was the most relaxing week ever!
Fully equipped,very clean ,and comfortable.we definitely will be coming back!

We stayed for two weeks at the end of July and can strongly recommend the villa. The views are amazing, the bedrooms cool and comfortable, and the kitchen is well equipped. The highlight was the pool, a good size and depth it was both cool and relaxing and great fun for young teenagers. And the BBQ by the pool was great too. The owners are excellent at keeping in touch in the build up to your holiday and the apartment Manager (Ana) is responsive to any issues or questions when there. We had peace and space but felt well looked after if needed. The location of the villa makes it a great base for activities and sightseeing without the noise and bustle. The local supermarket is only a short 5 minute drive away and there's a good restaurant in safe walking distance of the villa. The local town has good cafes and restaurants and a market - a pleasant town without being touristy. You're within half an hours drive of lots of great beaches, towns, a water park (Aqua Show Park) and the airport. The villa is beautiful, cool and comfortable in a peaceful location but with everything you need in easy reach. We would definitley come back here!

A lovely villa to stay with your family
By Familie W. Said... on 21-Aug-2017
The villa was quite easy to find and it gave a good and safe first impression. We liked the view very much, the surrounding is calming and lovely for a holiday. The villa itself is really nice, the kitchen is neat, a lovely living room and all the other chambers were clean and big. We also enjoyed a swim in the pool everyday, which is cleaned every week. The garden is big, the space around the pool gives you the choice to sit in the sun and the shadow. It is a great area, a supermarket nearby and also nice villages nearby to visit. There are several beaches approachable with the car within 20 minutes. We would definitely recommend this villa to other people. The pictures on the site give a good impression, but in reality it's even more beautiful
Wonderful, private, spotless Villa. Total escapism!
By Anonymous Said... on 09-Aug-2017
We had a wonderful stay at Casa Vista Bonita, a holiday that was incredibly well organised by owner Robert, who had even taken the trouble to get his housekeeper Ana to get us some shopping ready for our arrival, including a fresh chicken salad, complete with wine and beer - what better way to start our holiday! The Villa is spotlessly clean, very comfortable and welcoming. It was extremely hot during our stay, over 40 degrees, so the air conditioned bedrooms and cool pool were a huge relief. We enjoyed several barbecues and alfresco dining, we even bought and grilled fresh Tuna steaks from Loule market. The Villa offers total privacy and we ate fresh figs from the trees, watched the sunset and star gazed most evenings - a real haven. A car is essential, although a short stroll away is an excellent and very reasonable restaurant Horta, which is highly recommended. The Towns of Albufiera and Vilamoura are accessible within about 40 minutes by car. Tavira is a beautiful town approx. 20 minutes away, and the short boat trip to Ilha de Tavira with it's beautiful, vast sandy beach that caters for everyone, is a must. All in all a wonderful, relaxing holiday. Thank you Robert and Manuel.
Great location and lovely villa

The villa is very comfortable with a great pool, ideal for those hot sunny days. There's also plenty of shade for those who want some respite from the heat. The location was really good, a short drive from the airport with lots of great local restaurants offering excellent value top quality food. The owners and management team we're very helpful and efficient. We would recommend this villa to others. All in all a very relaxing holiday
