We had a wonderful time at Casa Vittore. We shared the house with friends and enjoyed the tasteful setting and beautiful outdoor spaces. The neighborhood is quiet and perfect for a family vacation. The location offers a lot of possibilities for leisure and activities.
This villa was a huge part of why our holiday went so well!
I don't really know where to start..... just to say that the villa is the most beautiful I've ever stayed in and the whole experience was beyond our expectations. All the rooms were clean and the bedding was beautiful. All three bathrooms are of a high standard and two of the rooms have large modern TVs. The kitchen is very well equipped and again everything was clean and looked brand new. My family and I especially enjoyed the out side seating areas, especially the white leather corner sofas. It's the most amazing spot to sit and enjoy a glass of wine and reflect on your day! The pool area is equipped with a very large table tennis table which we were not expecting - a great addition!! All in all, we had a fabulous holiday and this villa was a huge part of why our holiday went so well!
The villa is located above Carvoeiro so you get a stunning view of sea from the garden with a pleasant breeze. Everything is as you see on the webpage, only it's so much better in real life. There are plenty of outside seating areas allowing everyone to have some privacy. Because it's situated above the town it 's about a 10 minute walk down a steep hill, but there are plenty of inexpensive taxis to take you back to the villa if you prefer. Although we spent alot of time at the villa as there is everything you need there for a superb holiday, from the marvelous interior, a superb outside kitchen, table tennis table, inflatables, etc. There is a little mini market in walking distance of the villa where you can buy fresh bread and croissants in the morning, and there are also several restaurants close by, so you do not have to go into the town every evening to get a good meal. We had a little trouble with the hot tub as it kept overheating, but the pool man came in regularly to sort it out. Nothing was too much trouble from booking with Rennie to speaking with the Manager Truus. I can highly recommend this villa.
Let´s get it straight - there has been a lot of clever thinking and state of the art designing going on when renovating this house. And everything is TOP NOTCH, even if you are used to high standards. Even though the pictures are nice, reality beats them. We were two families with kids who visited early July, and several times we just laughed about how amazingly well designed this villa is for a delightful holiday in Portugal. Everything is thought of - from the architecture (which is a superb and tasteful meeting between the traditional and modern) to the various garden areas (of course with shade or sun dependent on what you prefer any time of the day) to the equipment in the kitchen. The privacy is total around the pool, so you can be completely relaxed, and if your kids are a bit noisy like ours you do not disturb anyone. You will find an outdoor shower there as well. The pool is big and you can access the deck (where you have several seating choices) directly from three of the in total four bedrooms. The fourth bedroom is on the top floor. The kitchen is well equipped with quality items all the way through, and you have several seating choices inside or outside for enjoying your dinner. The village itself is situated about 10 minutes walking distance from the house (it is a fairly steep walk) and there are two beaches nearby which are good - one more busy directly at the village square and the other one more of a silent place with no vendors or infrastructure. In the village you find several dining options if you prefer dining out, some really touristic and others a bit more sophisticated. Other things we found great were functioning wifi, enormous amount of TV-.channels (TV sets in the bedrooms and the living room mainly used by the kids of course), solid security with code locked gates, stunning views, high quality linen and towels, really nice bathrooms, a nice outdoor barbecue area and table tennis. Rennie, the house owner, was really good to deal with when booking and as you might expect the people they hired to handle practical things where the best. The Villa Manager, Truus, visited us twice making sure everything was ok, being very helpful with restaurant recommendations and tour suggestions. We had some questions around the hot tub, and already the next day the pool-man was there taking care of things. We had cleaning twice, all perfect. To sum up - this house and the entire visit went well beyond our high expectations.
