Casa Maia


Casa Maia is a beautiful architecturally designed villa, set in an elevated position standing in 3 acres of secluded land with views over the surrounding vineyards and farms.

Local Area

Guia has become famous in recent years for its excellent selection of restaurants, and is particularly renowned for specialising in the local favourite "Chicken Piri-Piri", excellent chicken traditionally grilled over charcoal and marinated in a spicy sauce. The popular and vibrant town of Albufeira is only a five-minute drive from the villa. The older section of this former fishing village has retained much of its original charm, and you will find an excellent selection of bars and restaurants as you wander through narrow cobbled streets. The challenging golf course at Salgados is about three miles from the villa, with a further selection of courses in the Lagoa area, about a twenty-minute drive away.

    Booked through Premier Villas who were great- stayed here first week of July with 10 girl friends, couldn't have asked for a better place. The villa was beautiful, in a secluded area but lovely (if difficult to find at first in the pitch black- recommend arriving in the daytime!) Rooms were clean and very spacious. Upstairs all the rooms had en suites and downstairs there was a large family bathroom to share. Kitchen was large with everything you needed in the cupboards. Fridge with an ice dispenser went down a treat in the heat wave we had! The pool was a great size with 10 sunbeds so noone was ever left without. The hammocks and the dining area outside was great and where we spent most of our time! Location was good, 30 mins from the airport - we hired 1 car but also needed taxi's for the large group. Car hire is probably necessary (even just for food runs) as it was difficult to explain to taxi drivers where to stay, however we ended up saying "Escola Mouraria" which was a school just down the road and they understood that! Beaches 10-15minute drive and the nearest big shopping centre was Algarve shopping, which included a huge supermarket and was a 5-10 minute drive max and everything you could need! Overall we were very impressed with the villa for a large group it was perfect and we would definitely come back to stay again. Good value too - not overpriced. Can't fault it!

    Having just spent eight days relaxing in this beautiful villa I can't recommend this villa enough. My wife and I, plus three grown up children and partners, plus my mum, were all very comfortable in what is essentially a lovely family home.
    The pool and gardens and outside terrace areas are where we spent most of our time and the loungers are particularly nice.
    For us the location was perfect, very rural and peaceful but within easy reach of beaches and restaurants. Albufuera is 5 minutes away and the golf courses at Villamoura are a 20 minute drive away.
    All in all we had a wonderful holiday and would definitely return.
