One of our most popular villas, Casa Segredo is a fantastically large, spacious, fully fenced, 6 bedroom, 5 bathroom villa with extensive outdoor terraces. Our lovely Casa Segredo includes all you need for a luxurious family holiday - large fenced and gated private pool that can be heated (charges apply for heating), children's climbing frame & swing set, foosball table, free Wi-Fi internet access, plasma TVs, full SKY Sports satellite TV system and MEO satelite TV channels, stereo and Bluetooth speaker, DVD players, DVD movies, Playstation PS2 with games, a few toys, books, magazines and air conditioned bedrooms. There is also a safe installed in the villa so you can keep your valuables securely contained. We have tried to think of everything that you would need or want for a relaxed family holiday.
To enjoy the relaxed ambience of Casa Segredo, you will find a bar with fridge and serving area in the sunken living room, where you get to be pub landlord while everyone else props up the bar! There are numerous sofas to relax and enjoy watching a movie or some sport. The several spacious living areas of the villa, including the extensive outdoor terraces, lend themselves to large groups to be able to enjoy being together, yet with enough space for everyone to have a great time in our wonderful warm climate.
There are 6 bedrooms, all air conditioned, at Casa Segredo. There are 4 bedrooms with king size beds, all ensuite with their own full bathrooms. There is one twin room and the 6th bedroom is the children's bedroom which shares a bathroom with the adjacent twin room. This fabulous and very unique children's bedroom has a bunk bed (1 double bed and 1 single bed in the bunk) and they can enjoy some exploring to find the secret hideaway, a great fun place for little pirates to escape to! We can't tell you more now. the children will have to use their pirate's intuition or maybe they might find the treasure map to find the secret hideaway!
If you want a bedroom that you can escape from it all, the entire first floor of Casa Segredo is dedicated to the large master suite which also has its own private sun drenched terrace / balcony with sun loungers and fab views across the countryside.
There are several sunny places in the morning to enjoy breakfast. You can choose to have breakfast on your terrace upstairs or on one of the large covered and open terraces that surround the villa. Who needs Starbucks when you can enjoy a freshly made coffee from the espresso machine in the kitchen?
The kitchen is equipped with all the gadgets and gizmos you will need, including the espresso machine and all the utensils you need to whip up a fantastic meal. There is a formal dining table in the open plan lounge, a separate breakfast table in the kitchen and outside dining area. You also have a washing machine and tumble dryer for use while you are on holiday.
Casa Segredo is an excellent family villa in a great location for the Vale do Lobo area. It's close to the beach (less than a 5 minute drive) and also the several golf courses in the area including Vale do Lobo Ocean and Royal Golf Courses, Quinta do Lago North and South Golfe Courses, Laranjal, Vilamoura Oceanico and Pineheiros Altos.

Enjoy topping up your tan by the large rectangular heatable pool (extra cost). There are intergrated steps into the pool so it's nice and easy for the kiddies or older family members. The pool (11 x 5m) is surrounded by extensive terraces and paved area and is fenced so you can close off the pool area to the little ones. Cook up a storm on the BBQ, chill out on the sun loungers, dine on the several outdoor tables and chairs . simply just relax and enjoy al-fresco dining in the warm evenings.
The massive garden is nearly an acre of lawn and flowering shrubs. The entire property is fenced and completely secure for the little ones to go for a wander. For further peace of mind, there is secure, off-road parking for three cars which is accessed through a gateway and there is also a pedestrian gateway which can only be opened with your key.

I thought I’d take the opportunity to thank you all for your excellent service and attention to detail. We had a lovely holiday and Villa Segredo was perfect for our family. We are now back in the grey wet weather and are missing it all very much. No doubt you’ll be hearing from us in the future but thank you all again for your help and courtesy. Best wishes Ban and Georges Lepelley
A perfect villa for two families sharing (4 kids in total). Really well maintained, great layout. It had everything we needed with 4 children under 5, from toys in the mezzanine playroom to kids’ cutlery and plates etc. The pool was a real focus. The short drive to the beach, shops and restaurants was great and we were able to try our different beaches and many places to eat. Great customer service before, during and after our stay. Overall a fantastic villa and holiday. Thanks SandyBlue!
I feel I have to say a heartfelt Thank You for the most amazing family holiday what a super Casa welcoming,beautifully presented, so clean!,super facilities the list is endless from the lady who gave us directions on how to get there, to the ladies who came to service the Casa , to the pool attendant and the Gardner take a bow it’s a credit to all superb facilities we had a wonderful family holiday. Beautiful place stunning Casa, sincere thank you to all.
We had a fabulous week, the villa was perfect and worked really well with the toddlers and adults alike. Lots of space (toys for the kids) and we didn't need to worry about them getting into the pool.
It was a beautiful and well appointed, very modern and tasteful in fact a designer Villa. It was exceptionally clean and the cleaners who came in three times were excellent. The bedrooms were very large and well appointed with superking beds in four of the bedrooms. Home from home as we have superking beds in our home. The pool and surroundings outside were also excellent. I would not hesitate to stay there again. Just the sort of Villa we usually book.
Yes all members of the family got home safely after a fantastic holiday.A truly exceptional villa.
We had a lovely family stay at Casa Segredo, which perfectly suited all our needs. It's a very well equipped, beautifully decorated, large villa, perfectly located for numerous shops and restaurants and easy access to the beaches. We had a fabulous relaxed week which everyone enjoyed. Sandy Blue communication and service excellent both pre and during stay.
We stayed as a family of 6 adults, 2 children, a toddler and a baby in June 2017. The entire holiday was fantastic - from initial enquiries to Sandy Blue, getting the instructions for the villa from the Sandy Blue offices in Almancil to the return of the deposit. Sandy Blue was always professional, prompt and helpful with all our queries. The villa itself was outstanding. It was exactly as per the pictures on the website, the kitchen was exceptionally well equipped, the information booklet was detailed and very useful. Little details had been thought about - for example, when the gas ran out of the bbq, there was another full cylinder there for us to use. The villa was located very close to the restaurant Gourmet Natural and about a 10 minute drive to the Praca at Val De Lobo. We all had cars, though getting taxis to/ from the villa was very easy to do too. That said, the villa was so good we had plenty to entertain the entire family within it. Pool was excellent, gates around it to keep the little ones out. Property felt safe and secure. Five star property and service. Thank you Sandy Blue for such a special family holiday.
We have left this morning in a hurry (as always) and I just want to say thank you for everything. I had a wonderful time. You were all very helpful and professional. Please extend my thank you and kindest wishes to all in the team.
Just want to say thanks to everyone at Sandyblue. We had a lovely week at Casa Segredo and the staff contributed a great deal to that.
I wanted to drop you a line to say how fantastic our stay was at Casa Segredo. It is the perfect property for a family with Kids. The property was superbly presented, 6 great sized bedrooms in a really peaceful area but close to everything. It was really clean with everything that we needed such as towels, soap, shower gel etc. Providing a goodie basket on our arrival was truly fantastic as we arrived late and the basket had everything that we needed from milk, to dishwasher tablets ,tea.. even a bottle of wine. The pool was really clean and very warm which was great. The bbq was full of gas and ready to use and there were lots of inflatables, toys, a swing and even a goal post for the kids. In short, it was a perfect stay and very well prepared for us all.
Just wanted to thank you all at Sandy Blue for a wonderful stress free stay at THE AMAZING 'Segredo Villa'. We all had such a wonderful funny time and are hoping to return if not next year, the year after. Thank you all once again for everything you did...
Our stay at the villa was truly lovely from start to finish. The instructions were clear and precise on how to gain access through to other useful information. The size of the property was perfect for our 3 families making a total of 12, no one felt on top of each other and the size of the rooms was suprisingly adequate. The standard of decor and finishing touches was to a good standard and very comfortable. The grounds were beautiful and we as a group benefited from having the swimming pool heated!
We have just returned from a fun filled holiday courtesy of all the great staff at Sandy Blue. Our villa, Casa Segredo, fitted our needs perfectly and surpassed our expectations with the provisions for little ones and overall standard. Sandy Blue were helpful, informative and very friendly to deal with. The whole experience from booking to departure was excellently dealt with, thank you soooo much! Such a shame we couldn't stay for another week!!
We just wanted to write and say thank you very much for the fantastic holiday we had at Casa Segredo last week. The eight of us had a wonderful time and the place was just beautiful and so brilliantly set up for our two families. The children were so well catered for and the place also provided a welcome chance to relax for the parents! Also, all of the staff we met were lovely and the cleaners were great and so we wanted to say thank you for all of your help and effort in making it such a wonderful experience. The only shame was arriving home to London to 17C and rain!
I just wanted to take this opportunity to say what a fantastic team you make. I wasn't the easiest of customers, what with changing villas etc etc to accommodate our friends. You always got back to me immediately with a host of different options. Whilst we were staying at the villa we had a problem with the dishwasher, you had a man to hand within minutes of me sending an email to you. You were all so friendly and we really really enjoyed out stay at the villa the wine and pastries were fabulous as well!! It didn't feel like a week was enough! if we come back - which I am sure we will I will definitely l be getting in touch with you guys.
Just like to say thank you to all at SandyBlue for a great week, the Villa was great and service excellent.
The villa was amazing, the whole family loved it , what a fab time we had. My grandson Sebastian was ever so frightened of the water but at the end of the holiday he was jumping in the pool non stop, when we told him he was going home on Saturday he broke his heart crying. We would love to come back and I would most definitely recommend it to friends.
The villa was brilliant-my four grandchildren (and us as well) loved it. The heated pool was especially well received. I honestly couldn't think of any negatives at all. We come to The Algarve for at least two weeks every year as we have some apartments in The Four Seasons in the Old Village. However every now and then we do vary our holiday and I can certainly assure you that we shall be back in the very near future and will certainly approach Sandy Blue before anybody else. Everyone I have dealt with has been extremely pleasant and very helpful. We had a truly wonderful time.
We're having a great time , villa is fantastic and all the restaurants we've been to are fab. Went to gourmet naturel last night which was really stunning. Just wish we were staying longer
