    “We stayed 2 weeks as a family of 5 with 2 Kids. The kids loved the pool and all the toys. The house is well furnished, the kitchen is large and has everything you need. Service was absolutely great and uncomplicated. The baths could use a touch up, but other than that we really enjoyed our stay.”

    “We stayed with our children and grandchildren from 2 to 9 October in house ALHA in Lagoa. For us the house was very suitable. Plenty of seats a swimming pool. and BBQ. There was also children's toys that could be used. Everything you need was there.
    The large kitchen was well equipped .. The beds / mattresses were pretty firm, but we slept fine.
    Here and there the house deserves some maintenance. In the pool the tiles were removed in a few places. On the terrace a few broken and / or sagged tiles. A torn door (torn with adhesive tape). That kind of thing, but that certainly did not have a negative influence on our holiday fun.
    We have had a great time!”

    “Casa Alha is furnished traditionally with a very generously sized pool. The management team were very welcoming and the welcome pack of bread, water, milk, oranges, etc. was a delightful surprise.
    It was very clean and perfect for a family getaway.
    It is in an amazing remote, quiet location where all you can hear is wildlife - however, this means there are limited shops nearby. There is a small shop about a 5 minute walk away where you can get basic essentials. However, for larger supermarkets it will be about a 5-10 minute drive to Carvoiero. Carvoeiro town was very lively at night with entertainment by the beach and a vast amount of restaurants and gift shops. If you like a lively, activity filled holiday I wouldn't recommend this location unless you hired a car, although it is absolutely perfect for relaxing and unwinding which was our main requirement for a holiday. There is a water park and various other activities about for children if you had a hire car or didn't mind continually paying for taxis.”
