"Just returned from a week at the villa with my husband and 3 teenagers had a great time, Alex Cracknell (Pac4Portugal) very pleasant and extremely helpful. The pool was lovely great outdoor space clean comfortable and spacious inside but does require some updating. Location perfect away from the hustle and bustle but only a ten minute walk into town via 'Cardiac' hill (Don't know what it was really called). We also had access to the pool and bar at the Solferias Hotel across the road . The kids were happy as they were allowed to use the wi-fi there, also for the adults the drinks were cheaper than in town.." - Lister Family, England (August 2014)

Boas Festas, 2015 looks bright and sunny!

Just released our December 2014 Newsletter:

First of all we would like to wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.  We are already looking forward to seeing a number of you next summer.  Bookings for 2015 have already been very good and some of you may miss out on your favourite property, if you have not already booked it.
We have had a very busy couple of months in November and the start of December, which for us is normally very quiet.

There are new laws and regulations are taking shape in Portugal for holiday rentals.  Some of you who have already booked with us for next year will have been asked to provide passport numbers on the new amended booking forms.   For those who have not been asked for this information, we will be requesting these details with your final payments.  This information is now needed for us to inform SEF (frontiers authorities) of your arrival and departure in the country and the property you are staying in.

In addition you will see details of the AL (Tourist Licence) that was already in place in some properties, but is now compulsory for a legal rental property.  Properties with the Tourist Licence have met certain legal and safety requirements and are registered with the proper authorities for their activities.  Be assured all our properties now featured on either have their licence or in the process of applying.

As a result of the above some properties have now left our portfolio and we will In due course be removing them from our other websites.   However, since our last newsletter we have added 5 new properties and are in discussions with owners over a further 6 properties to add to the portfolio. has a new business partner and in the next few months we will be able to extend our services to clients into construction, real estate and property management.  More details will follow early next year so keep an eye on our facebook page (which has hit over 12,000 likes now) to hear first!

Please find attached our festive newsletter and we hope to hear from more of you over the next month.

Stay safe and warm.

Kind regards

Casa Rostra is a charming 4 bedroom villa, 3 bathrooms with secluded swimming pool, numerous terraces located in a quiet and peaceful cul-de-sac, just 300m from Centianes beach and close to an Italian restaurant.   This property is a hidden gem for a group of friends or two families with 2 wings of 2 twin bedrooms joined by a very spacious lounge and dining area.  

Casa Rostra is about 1.7km to the east of Carvoeiro and is just 300m from a lovely sandy beach,  a couple of minutes walk from the nearest restaurant (take away available) and within a 5-10 minute walk there are another 3 restaurants.  Carvoeiro with its shops, restaurants, bars and beach is about a 20 minute walk or around a 5 euro taxi fare.  If you are keen on your sports, the 2 closest hotels allow clients to hire their tennis courts.  Vale de Mihlo 9 hole golf course is about 20 mins walk, along with Rocha Brava and its tennis club.  There area a number of championship golf courses within a 10 minute drive.  Before you reach Carvoeiro, there is the Tivoli with its SCUBA diving school, based at Vale Covo beach.  If you refer to the villa book there is a guide to lots more to do in the Algarve and contacts with a local transfer and tour company to offer you tickets and transport.

Feedback: "I stayed at Casa Rostra in October last year with family and friends and we all had a fantastic time. The villa is really comfortable, spacious and clean and there is a maid service during your stay to ensure it stays that way! The outside space offers different seating areas to enjoy meals, two of which are by the pool. There is also a lovely terrace at the front of the villa which catches the evening sun. The local village is a short walk away and has lots of cafes, restaurants, bars and shops. There is also a lovely, unspoilt beach only a few minutes away. I would thoroughly recommend Casa Rostra to anyone looking to stay in the area." - Childs Family

The beach is about 15 minutes walk away, though does get crowded. The villa is serviced regularly both inside - bedding, cleaning - and outside - pool, gardens. Some great restaurants in town or if you prefer use the inbuilt brick bbq.. Agent and Manager were very responsive and couldn't have done more to help. Overall great stay, thoroughly recommend it."
