Set in a very tranquil location, Casa Praia Garrao is just a 10 minute stroll to the fabulous Garrao beach through the nature reserve and is next to the award winning Dunas Douradas resort. The south-east facing villa is ideal for family holidays or for two families sharing as it is spacious and comfortable as well as very peaceful – birdsong is the most prevalent sound.
Upon entering the villa, the entrance halls leads through double doors to the bright living room which has comfortable sofas, a wide screen TV with Lazer TV showing international and UK channels, air conditioning and sliding door access to the pool and gardens. The outside areas at Casa Praia Garrao are fabulous. The pool, with integrated steps, can be heated (extra charges apply) and a pool fence for safety of the little ones can be installed (free of charge). The pool is very inviting (7 x 3.5m, maximum depth 1.80m) and there is plenty of room for poolside relaxation on sun loungers on the terrace or lawn. There is an outside dining area and a charcoal BBQ for whipping up some deliciousness and enjoying al fresco meals and mellow, relaxed evenings.
The dining room, which also has access to the pool and terrace, can accommodate 8, has air conditioning, and is adjacent to the living room and kitchen. Modern and well equipped (dishwasher, ceramic hob, oven, micro-wave, American style fridge freezer), the kitchen has everything you could need during your stay. There is a separate laundry room with washing machine and dryer.

The lovely and popular Garrão beach is less than a 15 minute walk from Casa Praia Garrao through the nature reserve. A long, sandy beach, you can hire out sunbeds and enjoy great food at some of the best beach restaurants around such as Julia’s and Izzy's. As well as great food, these restaurants do great sunset sessions too. The beach is popular with families as well as with visiting celebrities, so keep your eyes peeled, you never know who might be on the sunbed next to you.
The award winning Dunas Douradas resort is less than a 10 minute walk from the villa and all the action at the Vale do Lobo Praça (home to a choice of restaurants and bars) is a 20 minute.

As for the holiday it could hardly have been better. The weather was fantastic and the villa was stupendous - much bigger than we had expected in a wonderful quiet location close to the beach and some great restaurants. Although we spent most of our time outside we were all hugely impressed with the interior. The bedrooms were lovely and spacious, the kitchen was very well equipped and everything was spotless. It was also very safe for our 2 year old grandson. By a distance the best villa we've ever had in the area and I'm struggling to find any aspect of the villa and grounds to criticise!! Your pool man and the cleaners were friendly and efficient and the written guidance in the folder contained all the info we needed. This was our first booking with Sandyblue and we were all purring with appreciation at the standards you set. Sandyblue will definitely be our first port of call - many thanks to you all for running such a hugely professional operation.
Great villa, very lucky with the weather everyone thoroughly enjoyed the week.
Well we've been back almost 2 weeks now and it's a case of.......what holiday, it seems absolutely ages ago. We all had a very good time at the villa and will happily recommend Sandy Blue. Finally I would just like to say a big thanks to you all for the manner in which you dealt with everything both before and during our holiday, it was all much appreciated.
We had a wonderful stay at Casa Praia Garrao. The villa is beautifully finished and has everything you could possibly need. The location was ideal and we enjoyed visiting the various beaches and excellent restaurants nearby. Once again Sandy Blue were on hand for any queries and a few very minor issues were resolved very efficiently.
Thank you and your colleagues for helping organise a fantastic stay in the villa. It was perfect for our toddlers! It was very comfortable and kept spotless by the housekeeping team. I would recommend the villa and Sandy Blue to anyone looking for a well organised and friendly service.
We had a fantastic time in the villa and are trying to organise dates to book again for our family holiday May 20018. The pool heating was a boon the grandchildren didn’t want to go anywhere other than the pool. The villa was fairly well equipped and the service we received from yourselves was excellent, we could not have asked for better. Thank you.
We had a fantastic time at the villa. The weather was superb which made a big difference too. We swam in the pool and the baby of 5 months took to the water like a duck, especially as it was heated. The villa was exceptional, so big and comfortable and so well appointed. Everybody loved it. We bar-b-qued one evening and dined alfresco, having shopped in Apolonia, what a choice in that supermarket ?We hope to return again next year. Please pass on our appreciation to the staff of Sandyblue organisation for their professionalism, in the run up to our trip, and while we were there. Thanks for the welcome pack. As we arrived late at night , it was great to have some food and a cuppa!
We've just returned from a fabulous week at Case Praia Garro. From start to finish Sandy Blue have been great, emails returned prompt, clear instructions on how to get to the villa and how to get inside.Inside the villa we were delighted, just what you'd expect a home from home (with the added bonus of sunshine and a pool). There was plenty of room for us all, 7 in total (x2 families). Everywhere was to a clean high standard, including the bedding and towels etc.As the children are older now we don't need the hustle and bustle of a hotel so we decided this year a villa would suit our needs best. Everyone had a great time and our only regret is not staying for two weeks!We will certainly use Sandy Blue again and have alreadyconsidered dates for next year.
