Reviews of CASA SANTOLINA

Star Rating 1Star Rating 2Star Rating 3Star Rating 4Star Rating 5  Superb comfortable villa. Fantastic views & wonderful pool!

Wonderful relaxing week – and wonderful pool, with great views.

Casa Santolina was just as described, and even better than the photographs! Must compliment you on the decor, and comfort of your villa. It really is beautiful, and was a pleasure to return to each evening. We were so lucky to find you when we were searching for places to stay.

Tavira is a lovely old cobbled town, and we found it really good value for money as well. We’d recommend Barril Beach on Tavira Island. Easy parking, and take the pretty little train to the beach. Good facilities/ restaurants and child-friendly - walk a few hundred metres up the beach for peace and quiet. We also liked the visit to Faro's Chapel of Bones, and the Marina.

We really did enjoy our holiday, and thank you so much for all your help. It's a beautiful villa and a perfect place to escape to.

We will definitely recommend Casa Santolina to friends and family!

July 2017

We loved it! Stayed for two weeks. We were impressed with the cleanliness and high standard of the villa. Such care and thoughtfulness has gone into even the smallest detail. Chris is a friendly host, and very helpful with ideas of places to go.
Casa Santolina is a very good base, good for connecting into good roads and interesting places.

The weather was glorious, really warm, and the swimming pool is marvellous for keeping kids entertained all holiday. More reading time for us… It's wonderful. We have already Booked again for 2018...!

We love Tavira, a charming cobbled town and lots of good restaurants. Beaches in the area are clean and lots of wide sand. We loved eating at restaurants right on the beach. One was even called ‘Toes in the sand’! We also explored the inland area from the house, up into the hills. So beautiful. We had some long walks with great views. One day we took a trip to Seville in Spain, which was an easy drive of about an hour and a half. A really enjoyable holiday.

We loved it! Thank you for having such a lovely home-from-home for your guests. We enjoyed being here, and it made our 40th wedding anniversary very special ! The magic was here for sure .....! The view is wonderful and the small pool was very private. The quality of the building and the decor are very authentic and well thought out

We had a lovely week's stay at Casa Santolina. The villa is one half of a large house set in quiet countryside. A car is needed to explore this pleasant part of the Algarve. Tavira is a very nice town to eat, shop and meander around and the beaches are great for families. The short ferry ride or tourist train ride to the Isle de Tavira and Barril Beach add to the fun, don't be put off by the villa not being right by the sea. It's worth a mention that the swimming pool is very small, more of a dip pool being only waist high but the beaches in the area make for great swimming and are easier to escape the crowds than other parts of Southern Portugal. Cacela Velha is a lovely village to visit, again with a great beach. The villa is tastefully decorated and comfortable and very clean, an extensive list of rules in the welcome pack might be the reason it remains so!

We were very impressed with the property, it was clean, spacious and perfect for a family of four with two under-10s.

The owners have planned the space well and thought of everything. Casa Santolina catches the morning and midday sun, then the pool is shaded from the afternoon on, which is perfect.

The depth of the pool is also a good design point, and worth mentioning - there is no deep end - it is on one level which was just right for the children.

The villa is good for beaches, for reaching Spain, and the local shopping centre has everything you might need.

A perfect place to re-charge the batteries after final exams for my daughter and a hectic work schedule for me. Peaceful but close enough to interesting sites and places to visit (and eat). Chris is a great host, full of advice and tips on how to make the best of your holiday.
