Seville can be reached within 2 hours, Cordoba is 2 hrs further on, , Lisbon is approximately 2.5 hours away. The roads and motorways are excellent. Alternatively within 30 mins driving west you can access major central Algarve towns and attractions .... or you could just chill, relax around the pool and enjoy doing absolutely nothing - as so many of our guests do !!

For those with quieter tastes the nearby Ria Formosa National Park offers excellent walks, extensive beaches and fantastic birdwatching (feathered variety)!!.

There are some really lovely places to visit - you will not be disappointed. This is a truly unspoilt part of the Algarve. Eating out on wonderful local fish meat and wine is still surprisingly inexpensive. Why not try it for a change. THE REAL PORTUGAL !! See reviews from guests - they love it!!

Family from Groea, Norway Jul 2022

Our stay at Casa Boa Vista in early July was the perfect family holiday. We were 8 people, from small children to grandparents, and Casa Boa Vista was just the perfect villa. Lots of space both inside and outside, and the pool!! We had people in the pool from early morning to bedtime. The house was very clean and well equipped, appliances were new and functional, and whatever we needed was there in the house somewhere. It was very hot (unusually hot) the week we were there with temperatures up to 35 degrees and maybe more, but it wasn’t really a problem. There was a strong ocean breeze during the day which made life comfortable, and we used the air conditioning in the bedrooms through the night. If anything, the living room was too hot in the evenings, but it was not a big issue. The house has a good location, quite private and with a nice country view. We really like the area and the surroundings, with easy access to supermarkets and restaurants and beaches at the coast. The contact with Paula the owner and with Ines the local manager was pleasant and problem free. The property is just as nice as it looks on the website, if not even better, and we would rent it again any day!


Friends from Essex, United Kingdom Jun 2022

We have just had the pleasure of a week's stay at Casa Boa Vista.
What an outstanding villa! The villa is set in a semi rural location and very peaceful and tranquil. The views from the villa are wonderful, so if you want peace and quiet and time to chill and unwind, this is where you should stay.
You have everything you could possibly want - the kitchen has all facilities and every utensil. Rooms are exceptionally spacious and comfortable. We stayed with our friends and loved our evenings playing pool and table tennis in the games room. We did visit the local bistro a couple of times and was not disappointed. The food was lovely as were the owners. The swimming pool was amazing, warm and such a good size.
We have visited Portugal on several occasions and stayed along the coast, but we do not regret staying here in the villa as we felt it was exceptional and we cannot wait to return.


Family from Bradford, United Kingdom May 2019

We al loved our stay at Casablanca Boa Vista. The only negative feedback is the lack of a handy shop or bar nearby.

Reply from Paula

Appreciate your comments but part of the sheer pleasure of the villa is that it is in a semi rural location, car hire essential. However we do highlight the excellent bar/bistro restaurant just 2 mins drive or 12+ mins walk from villa, open 10am-11pm.
Glad you enjoyed and thank you for 5 star feedback.

Excellent Property full facilities we had a wonderful time if I we were to change anything it would just be one thing and that would be to Install aircon in the lounge


Family from Winchester, United Kingdom Jul 2016

We stayed here for a week with our grown up children and their partners . Lovely villa spacious and very well equipped and we all loved the pool and games room . Very handily placed for lovely local beaches in this less developed part of Portugal which we really enjoyed and would return to again .


Family from Beckton, United Kingdom Sep 2015

We chose this villa for our honeymoon and can say without exceptions that this was the best holiday we had ever taken. As it was our honeymoon will chose not to go out and explore apart from going food shopping twice in the fortnight while we were there. We never hired a car but used the local taxi service and he was an absolute charm to deal with. The villa is truly outstanding. The pool is heated and lit up at night. There are beautiful scenic views looking out from the pool and a lovely garden area with a BBQ. There is a washing machine and rotary line so it means you can keep your luggage to a minimum. Towels and pool towels are provided. I could go on for ever about this gorgeous villa, we were sad to leave. The air conditioning is on between 7pm and 8am every day but you do not need it on during the day as the shutters keep the inside of the villa cool and there is a lovely breeze from outside. Paula was a delight to deal with kept in contact to provide us with everything we needed for our holiday. Simone the property Manager was also a pleasure, she kept us updated with anything we needed to know. Thank you all for making our honeymoon every thing and more that we could have hoped for. We will definitely be back xxxx

18-26 SEPT 2019 5/5 STARS Exactly as described This villa was perfect for us, situated in a beautiful area, tranquil and peaceful but not far from the hustle and bustle of busy resorts if that’s what you prefer. The villa itself has all any family with children could wish for with a games room downstairs with a pool table, table tennis, dart boards, table football, a gaming machine and exercise equipment, the pool is heated but you do need to keep the cover on when not in use so as to maintain a good temperature, there is also plenty of inflatables etc for the pool. Inside the villa there is everything you could wish for and it is all kept at a very high standard and really well maintained, Inês the manager goes though everything with you and if required is very easy to contact and a lovely woman. I would highly recommend this villa Thank you Paula and Steve for all your help and the information given before we left We will return Alan, Maria and family Bristol UK

THOMAS Aug 2019

6-13 AUGUST 2019 5/5 STARS Superb villa, excellent facilities, great location After having spent a wonderful, relaxing week at this villa it’s really hard to see how it could be improved. Everything is top quality, a great deal of consideration has gone into ensuring that guests have a fabulous time. Pool area is large, water warm, lovely garden space and many areas for activities such as pétanque, table football and pool. Excellent communication with the owner and local manager. A terrific experience all round.

ADRIAN Jun 2019

17-24 JUNE 2019 5/5 STARS Everything was fine with this villa. Absolutely nothing to complain about.Everything was as described. The heated pool is big and perfect! Would recommend the villa!


The villa was beautiful, spacious and very clean. I was particularly pleased to find that the kitchen was well equipped, as I love to cook. Your meet and greet service was an excellent touch, destressed us instantly. Good to know if we'd had any problems (which we did not) there was someone close by to help us. We loved the bistro just a couple of minutes away by car and must admit we went there several times. Recommend the steak on a stone!


Hi Paula, Must be our third visit (?) and as usual we had a lovely time at Casa Boa Vista. Everything so high quality, very clean, comfortable and tidy and we enjoyed the pool like always.It is a lovely retreat, a lovely area to visit and we intend to return with a bigger family group very soon.


We had such a good time again and very much enjoyed Casa Boa Vista and the warm pool. We were especially grateful for all the child proof equipment - the child gates, the playpen, the high chair and two cots you provided all at no extra cost. We had an excellent holiday again and the Villa was perfect for our needs. The facilities are excellent and if we had experienced poor weather, we would have liked to spend more time in your fabulous basement games room but the weather was so good for the whole of our stay - just one cloudy day, the rest was wall-to-wall sunshine. We will be booking again 2018.

Our return to Casa Boa Vista was exactly as we remembered, a lovely clean, well equipped villa, both inside and out, perfect for a family holiday with all ages catered for with the lovely heated pool and lots to do in the games room. My 36-year-old son was especially impressed with the retro games machine, taking him back to childhood with games like Pacman and Arcadians! The garden is a pleasant place to sit or play boules or bbq or pick a lemon from the tree for a G&T! We walked down the track a couple of nights to visit Maria's restaurant and are never disappointed with the freshly cooked food and friendly service. I have no hesitation in recommending Casa Boa Vista, everything is of highest standard and no doubt we will return.The new route from the airport is much quicker too! Thank you Paula, we had a great time in your lovely villa.

Bob and Hazel May 2016

Our second visit .. we had a lovely time. Casa Boa Vista was excellent and very well equipped. Ines and the maid were excellent and Rudolfo was also very friendly and spent a while telling us about some of the plants in the beautiful garden. We did not really use the new TV much but having Sky Sports is a big plus as we like cricket and F1. Hope to return next year!

The house was fantastic, we were all very happy to be there and were most impressed with the garden. Your guest information file was very useful and the most comprehensive that I have come across.

What a gem! Incredible views, relaxed in seconds just as the advert says. Beautifully furnished and equipped, lots of space, superb heated pool, BBQ, boules area and garden - we wanted for nothing. The children and adults thought the games room truly wonderful and we are already planning to return in 2012.

Just returned from a superb week in Casa Boa Vista. Had everything we dreamt of and more. Much larger than the photos, very well equipped and the views from the pool terrace were wonderful. Children loved the pool, the lads loved the games room. The girls just relaxed and enjoyed the peace and tranquility and occasional glass of wine. Local area definitely lower cost than Central areas. Highly recommend and already hoping to book again for 2010. Thanks Paula and Steve.

Casa Boa Vista surpassed all our expectations. Very large and tastefully decorated. Exceptionally well equipped, the owners have thought of everything. Loved the artwork, the garden with boules and BBQ and especially the games room. It was a real bonus too to have local managers Paula and Steve on call if we needed them. A quality service. The Eastern Algarve was a delightful surprise, charming, unspoilt and still very low cost. We will most definitely revisit the area and stay in this villa. Recommend Recommend

An excellent week was enjoyed by all in the villa. There was lots of room for the 8 of us. Couldn't get the kids out of pool. Excellent and helpful staff who were curteous and dealt with minor problems quickly. Freshly delivered bread rolls very morning was a real treat! Will be recommending the villa to all our friends.

Came back a second time and still fantastic, even more delightful than last time. A definate must for that quiet, undisturbed, relaxing holiday, even Hurricane Vince couldn't spoil it for us. Everything you could want for a break away from it all - am getting in touch to book yet again for next year!!! Thank you very much!

We have been spoilt!! Excellent value for money a very classy villa for a week with a beautiful warm pool,outstanding views stylish furniture and first class service. Where can you go and find warm bread rolls waiting for you every morning by 8a.m - and all included in the price!! Truly wonderful. Recommend, recommend recommend

Beautiful villa, very spacious and airy. Very high spec furnishings. Reluctant to move away from the heated pool and terrace but when you do the beaches are quite lovely. The golf at Cima and Marim is excellent. Will definitely come again.
