This wonderful four-bedroom, especially elegant, family villa sits majestically in an elevated position with landscaped gardens and breathtaking views across the Algarve landscape towards the coast and the Atlantic beyond. Situated only minutes away from bustling market towns and the renowned sandy beaches of this unspoiled area, Casa Canasta promises an unforgettable retreat with unashamed luxury.

Entering through private lockable gates, the first view of this magical home is the full-size pool, surrounded by comfortable sun loungers and, of course, the view! Add to this, exceptionally high furnishings, super modern gadgets and high-speed WiFi, and the fun begins.

The spacious living room with pale tiled floors, comfy seating and local artwork, leads onto the covered terrace through double French Windows. With comfortable seating for 8, and additional rattan sofas, this is where you will probably have your breakfast (and lunch…..and dinner…) everyone can enjoy the 10m x 5m pool with a poolside shower and BBQ.

The separate dining room with its round granite table is perfect for Spring and Autumn holidays. The contemporary kitchen where everything that you could possibly need has been provided – including American fridge with ice maker,/ combi microwave oven, dishwasher Nespresso machine, coffee maker and orange squeezer (pick your own oranges in the garden). The separate utility room has a washing machine and tumble drier.

Three ensuite bedrooms are on this floor. Each of these rooms has twin beds which can be made up as a king. Upstairs is the master bedroom has stunning views from each of its two terraces – one to the East which enjoys the morning sun and the other to the West of the villa. Cool cotton bedding and fluffy towels complete the charm and the house is fully air-conditioned.

The star of the show has to be the gardens and the terraces (made from local Santa Catarina handmade tiles). Around the pool are sunbathing corners and lawned areas and just behind the gate, on the east side, is an orchard with citrus fruits and our hidden “sundowner” corner. There are additional seating areas – one around the Peppertree and others hidden behind the palm tree. You will find your own hiding place where you can snooze with a book.

Casa Canasta has a completely walled perimeter and parking for up to 3 cars. Your nearest town is Sao Bras with its supermarkets and Saturday market, pretty Loule with its daily covered market is only 15 minutes away as is our favorite beach at Fuseta.

Review "Casa Canasta"

  1. Adelle

    We loved our stay at Terwest and really didn’t want to leave. Everything is perfect, the Villa, the views, the facilities and Sao Bras. We are already booking for summer next year but next time for longer, wish it could be forever!

  2. Stuart

    Lovely villa. Very private and peaceful. Great views. Exactly what we were looking for. Would love to book again. Stuart Hall.

  3. Rickard

    We had a wonerful stay at this villa, it met all our expectations. An extra bonus was the avalibility to have a fence around the pool since we had a 3 year old with us. We will also give an extra thank you to Matthijs and Daniel for their excellent support during our visit.

  4. Farrokh

    We, (6 adults and one 10-year-old child) had a fantastic time at the Casa Canasta . The villa is extremity comfortable. The living area and the 4 bedrooms (all with on-suits) were fully airconditioned, pristine and decorated tastefully to a very high standard. The kitchen was very well equipped with every possible utensil and gadget ever needed. We loved the round marble dining table to the right of the kitchen. There is a laundry room at the far end of the kitchen, which has a door to the front garden. There are quite a lot of grounds around the villa, which are beautifully landscaped with lots of fruit trees, the fig tree in the left garden (in front of car parking area) was our favourite. The ripened figs were as sweet as honey. Look out for cute small chameleons on the trees in this area. There is a car parking area for two, possibly three cars with remotely controlled electrically operated access gates. We also helped ourselves to some almonds from a tree in the right-side gardens. We used the outside sitting area and dining table in front of the pool quite a lot. The pool was good size and surrounded by a Pool Guard removable fence with one entrance door at the shallow end. The pool guard spoiled the fantastic view a little bit as we sat outside. But as we had a child in our group, I think it was probably a requirement by Portuguese property rental laws. If your group is all adults, you can request in advance for it to be removed. The villa is very safe with electrically operated vertical shutters on all doors and windows, which you can open or close individually or all in one go by the master switch in the entrance hall. All doors also had a sliding hand operated shutters as a secondary safety barrier, they were all locked with no keys provided (except the sitting room sliding French door to the outside pool area and one of the ground floor bedrooms). The upstairs master bedroom has a large private balcony, which would have been great for private sunbathing but its hand operated shutter was locked with no keys provided. All doors and windows also have internal hand operated sliding insect screens. One hundred percent recommended for a fantastic, private, quiet and relaxing holiday.

  5. Lucy

    Villa was beautiful, the gardens, bbq area and pool were perfect, and the house felt spacious and luxurious. Good kitchen equipment. We had 4 kids aged 2-6, area was fully fenced and there was a fence around the pool too. Communication was easy. 7 mins from supermarket and a few local restaurants nearby. Would definitely recommend and would love to stay again.

  6. Sabine

    We spent three weeks in the villa. We had a great and very relaxed time. The house is a bit out of the way, but you can reach the supermarket very quickly (7 minutes) by car and the beaches can also be easily reached in about 20-30 minutes. You have a great view. The house is very tastefully and lovingly furnished, so we felt very comfortable. We didn’t miss anything. A big plus for us was that there was an option to make a fence around the pool as we were there with small children. We would come back again and again and would highly recommend the villa.

  7. Pedro

    Great place, all was super. Highly Recommended.

    I’m a little bit reticent in writing this review. Casa Canasta is quite simply exquisite… and if I reveal all of its charms and perfect-ness – we will never be able to get a booking again ! It’s location is even more glorious than the photos suggest – the house really feels like a home from home – with treasured possessions combined with all the gadgets a house full of cooks could wish for; juicers, ice-maker in the fridge, big salad serving bowls, tagine pot, great knives, fresh courgettes and figs in the garden and the herbs!! – and even champagne glasses to celebrate degree results! There is privacy and cosiness and expansive views across the valley down to Faro the sea… we had a very special family break and none of us wanted to leave. All of us needed to keep in touch with work commitments back in the UK – including at least two Zoom meetings, the WiFi is excellent. Comms were great from Matthijs, the villa manager Danny and the owner as well – keen to keep in touch as we were her first let. Thank you and please let us come and stay again – your home is an absolute gem.
