Casa no sol is situated about 20 minuets from Faro airport, between the lovely traditional town of Loule and Almancil, Almancil is literally within nipping distance and is the place to find your closest supermarkets etc.
We wanted a three bedroom property where all the bedrooms were nice and the villa really delivers on this, all bedrooms are ensuite, all are spacious, perfect for a group of six adults where everyone wants good facilities. The property is beautifully decorated and extremely well equipped, fully air conditioned and with all the comforts of home.
Outside the high standards continue, great pool which is very well maintained, very comfortable soft seating area and excellent barbecue which we used most evenings.
There is excellent parking for your hire car, either on the gated driveway or in the garage which is under the property.
I would say this is a property best enjoyed with a car, we seemed to be handy for everything we wanted to do, beach, marina, Faro old town and the driving was straightforward, parking was never a problem and we could have explored further afield should we have been there for a longer stay. There are a couple of lovely looking restaurants within walking distance, we didn’t try them as we chose to have lunches out and evenings by the pool.
The property is looked after by an excellent management company, it’s them you deal with for the booking and I would rate them first class, they are professional and helpful and work to very high standards, I would be more than happy to book through them again.
The house is so beautiful, modern, spacious, clean, fresh, smells good (very important for my). We were a family of 6 people (4 adults and 2 children). Everyone felt that they can have their own space. Kitchen is fully equipted: from wine glasses to termos.
The pool has a deeper end and that was really appriaciated by my sons (8 and 9). My children loved the wii-console with all the games which they found in the house.
Nothing to complain about. I am really happy that I found this house on internet. The only flaw with our stay in the perfect house is that our own home in Sweden feels suddently so small :)
We stayed at Casa no Sol for 10 nights in August, The villa is absolutely beautiful, the pool is of a really good size and the area outside is really spacious. The villa is decorated to a very high standard and is very well equipped. As a family of 6 we found we had plenty of room, and the air con was very well appreciated, we did not feel the need to have the pool heated as we had extremely hot weather so it was quite refreshing,
We will certainly be back!
Thank you very much Seashell for the great service,
What a great place the photos don't do it justice with regards to the size it's on par with some USA homes I've stayed in. I am glad we hired a car even though there were a few restaurants within walking distance the nearest well equipped supermarket was a 15 minute drive. We drove to the beach and marina at Vilamora a couple of times lovely restaurants and shops. We used the BBQ twice very simple to use and clean. We did not encounter any mosquitos even when eating in the garden at night with the lights on. The pool was quite cold when you first jumped in but soon felt ok we didn't feel the need to heat it.
Very well equipped down to foil,freezer bags and cleaning sprays.
We only had one quibble the internet connection did not reach the bedrooms upstairs which for us was frustrating because three of us have work to do in the evening my husband placed foil behind the Internet hub which boosted it intermittently but I'm not sure if this is an area problem as most rooms have boosters but still no connection upstairs.
