Thank you for an amazing week at Casa Blanca - we are back for a second year and all was as good as we remembered. Loved the shoreline at Vale do Lobo. The boat trip which was a highlight for our children as was the waterpark. Beautiful area, beaches and restaurants - a week is just not long enough!
We have had a superb time - totally relaxing. Visited many beaches. Love the pool, love the privacy and love the people who take care of the house and grounds. All good things come to an end.
This is to confirm that we are now leaving Casa Blanca. All has been tremendous, everything has been so so good. All my family are so happy, not to go back to cold Sweden but with the stay.
I will recommend this villa and your company to all that asks for it, and I will look for future villas and/or apartments to rent from you.
Many many thanks for all your hospitality and help in arranging this for us.
Just a quick thank you for looking after us during our stay in Portugal. We had a thorough enjoyable time at Casa Blanca and are somewhat sorry to be back in the UK. The taxi service back to the airport was great, so thanks again for sorting/confirming the arrangements.All 14 of us would like you to pass on our sincere thanks to the owners, their villa is SUPERB and suited our wishes and needs down to a tee. It truly contributed to a fabulous family holiday and we will all remember for years to come the volley ball games in the pool, table tennis competitions, pizza and BBQ nights to name but a few of our antics.Thank you for once again to Emma and Kathryn for all your you have done for our family.
We had a really lovely holiday and thought that the villa was fabulous.
I just wanted to leave a review for Casa Blanca, Almancil. We were a group of 14 ladies celebrating at 70th birthday for one of our group. The house exceeded our expectations, was very clean and comfortable and the ladies servicing the property were polite and friendly. Just a slight word of warning with the sun beds, please be sure the back of the chair is properly in the slot otherwise it falls backwards and gives a nasty jar and shock. There was a problem with a broken umbrella and the pool heating, which Sao the villa manager quickly sorted out for us. I would have no hesitation in recommending this villa, it met our needs for a relaxing break perfectly. The transport which you arranged for us from the airport with Jorge and his colleagues was perfect. They were friendly and helpful and with 30 minutes notice were able to take us shopping, to see the emergency doctor or to a restaurant. Thank you for your help
