The kitchen and utility area is further down the hall with access to the back garden. The living & dining area has two patio doors which access the covered terrace with BBQ, that leads straight out to the pool. The 2nd bedroom leads from the living room and has doors to another covered terrace at the rear.

On the upper floor the first, ensuite bedroom has patio doors leading to a narrow terrace with views overlooking the lush gardens, pool and countryside beyond. The large master bedroom has a terrace of generous proportions and a wonderful area to take in the southern aspect and day long Algarvian sunshine.
The villa has recently had 3 new bathrooms and a new kitchen installed.

The large kitchen has excellent facilities, plus there is an integral BBQ; giving great flexibility for both indoor and covered outdoor dining, plus the option of informal eating around the pool. Also, with some of best restaurants you will ever experience close by, meal times are always a special occasion.

Just a short drive away is Alvor, a local fishing village where you can buy supplies at the fish and meat market or experience the extensive range of cuisine offered by the many restaurants within the old town. There is always live evening entertainment, plus other night life.

Stay June 2019
The Villa fully met the online specification. The location was good for visiting both the local facilities and the western Algarve region. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend.

5/5 Excellent

Lovely villa, with lots of space, in a good location, with a grate size pool
We were 2 families of 4 staying at the villa. Lots of space and pool great size for the children. Location good but ate in Alvor most nights, as better choice with children. Check out time of 9, a little early with children to get organised. Would definitely visit again.

4/5 Good

A lovely villa in a peaceful location
Three generations of our family spent an enjoyable 10 days at Casa Lucile. The villa was very spacious and very clean - cleaners came in once during our stay and they were particularly friendly and helpful. The kitchen was very well equipped as was the garden (which was very nicely maintained and peaceful) - plenty of sun loungers and very comfortable rattan furniture perfectly placed for the pool and shade. We also appreciated the dining furniture on the terrace and spent enjoyable evenings dining and indulging in a glass or two! The games room was enjoyed by all and there was some very serious table tennis and pool competition going on! We ate at both the recommended restaurants, Fonte de Pedra and Solar Do Farelo and were not disappointed - in fact we returned to both! In summary we had a very happy holiday at Casa Lucile.

5/5 Excellent

Fantastic family villa
Stunning villa with all amenities you could need. We went as 2 families with children aged 4 and 1. There was ample space for all of us. Car is required but not far from Alvor and beaches. Simon was excellent to communicate with and ensured we had 2 travel cost/highchairs. Overall I would recommend staying here. The only issue (which can’t be helped) is dogs barking at night from nearby villas but it wasn’t all night. A fantastic base to explore the algarve.

4/5 Good

Excellent villa with great facilities for a family group.
As a large family group attending our son's wedding, Casa Lucile provided an excellent base. The rooms are spacious and neat whilst the outside dining facilities and pool area provided the perfect area for relaxing in the glorious weather. Local restaurants are highly recommended - Fonte da Pedra and Solar do Farelo. Superb. Alvor is close by- car needed and Lagos and Portimao have great beaches and restaurants. We had a great time.
