Super Relaxing Time
A perfect hillside retreat where you can spend time relaxing in the beautiful garden and swimming in the generously sized pool.
The Cottage has everything you need for your stay including WiFi and Multiple British TV Channels and Netflix.
Our Host Joan Graham had prepared a delicious welcome pack including roast chicken, fresh bread, home made humous and pate.Also wine! So handy when arriving after your journey.
The Cottage is close by car to the local towns with really nice restaurants.We certainly recommend Olhao, Moncarapacho and Fuzeta to eat out.
This is our 14th time staying at the Cottage.We love it.
We both had a peaceful relaxing break once again.
My Piece of Heaven
Wonderful location with stunning views. The cottage has everything you need for a very comfortable stay. It is so peaceful and calm the perfect place to unwind and recharge your batteries. Not forgetting the glorious swimming pool we hardly ever got out of! And last but definately not least the inimitable Joan our Host and what a Host. Kind,helpful and so much fun. Her welcome pack is phenomenal and I cannot wait to go back. I so recommend this place its amazing!!
Amazing as ever
We returned again for what would be our 8th visit (maybe more!!).
We absolutely love the location of this cottage. We love the relaxing feel it give as soon as we arrive. The cottage owner Joan is amazing, lovely, very friendly and accommodating despite this being a self catered cottage. As Joan lives on site, it can be easy to forgot this is "self catered".
Joan leaves you plenty of provisions to start your holiday, We always buy more when we runs out, we wouldn't expect Joan to keep providing! The welcome hamper, which is above and beyond what we would normally receive in a self catered cottage. I'd go as far to say this is exceptional and very impressive.
They is an honesty bar/fridge by the pool, you can help yourself to beer/coke/wine etc and leave the required payment or replace what you've used when you go to the shops.
We hire a car as the town is about 1 mile away, however the local taxi company is very amenable. The town of Moncarapacho is about a 15/20 min walk away, passing beautiful scenery as you go.
The cottage is equipped well, a gas & charcoal BBQ, private seating area, dishwasher and washing machine! I know right - Amazing!
We had some friends come to stay and they stayed in the adjoining bedroom, no through walk way, so still private, but another room off to the left with an ensuite and small courtyard with tea & coffee and fridge etc. Great for parties of 4, you can share the outside space and kitchen. My understanding is it's only let exclusively to friends and not to people you don't know, so you have the run of the amazing "large" pool and surrounding terrace/garden space.
Love love love this place, so much so we are returning in September, cannot wait. :o)

This is our fourth visit in a row to this piece of paradise! From the moment you arrive you feel so relaxed, happy and at home. Joan really is the most wonderful host and one of the reasons we keep coming back. Her welcome packs are out of this world, homemade pate, avocado dip and hummus just to mention a few. As well as freshly squeezed orange juice, bread, milk and wine...all meaning you don’t have to leave for a few days or think about cooking. My Mum even said she would travel weekly from Hereford to receive such delicious treats! There are so many reasons why we come back - the setting, the gardens, the big pool, the dogs and of course sharing drinks and giggles on the terrace with Joan. There is everything and more that you need here, we enjoyed bbqs the evenings we stayed in, listening to music and sitting on the spacious terrace. We can’t praise Joan highly enough, it really is paradise. See you next year xxx
Oh! Completely delightful fun guests....and cannot believe it is their fourth visit. And they bring 'Mum' who stays in the wonderful en-suite bedroom adjacent to the cottage. You are such adventuress guests, and rushing off into the hills, finding really amazing Portuguese restaurants.... so looking forward to seeing you again next year.
I love doing the welcome packs for my guests.....and you are particularly great for some of my experiments!!
This was our second visit to Cassa D'Alegria, for a much needed relaxing holiday and once again we were not disappointed. The facilities provided, which includes privacy, extremely comfortable accommodation, a superb welcome pack, exclusive use of a large swimming pool, private terrace complete with panoramic sea views, delightful gardens and surroundings offer a peaceful and tranquil ambience and this is not to mention the most enjoyable company and hospitality of our host Joan, whom we shared some memorable times with. We enjoyed the locality particularly the many fine restaurants in Olhao, Moncarapacho, Fuseta and surrounding district. The accommodation enables you to choose how you want to spend your time, either quiet days/nights in and to BBQ, or to visit a local restaurant or to enjoy sociable evenings with Joan and friends, which we found most enjoyable.
All in all, we found the entire experience to be thoroughly enjoyable and we have already booked for next year and with a possibility of returning sooner.
We cannot praise this accommodation high enough!
Getting away for a proper break.
Perfect for those who don’t mind being a little out of the way. Perfect bolt hole to relax and unwind. We have been coming to the Algarve fo 15 years and love Moncarapacho. There are beautiful beaches to explore at Barril and Tavira island. Tavira town is stunning with plenty of good restaurants. The villa is small but perfectly formed as they say. Everything you need is there and if it’s not, I’m sure Joan would help you get it.

15 minutes en voiture de Fuzeta, qui possède une plage sur la Ria Formosa. Aussi le ferry pour l'île de Fuzeta (15 mn).

Si vous êtes prêt à marcher 10-15 minutes le long de ces plages, ils sont vides, même en Août. Une bonne information dans un chalet sur toutes les plages, etc.,

Aussi, il est un autre taxi de l'eau, il a tellement l'information locale, et vous amène à toutes les différentes îles, au large de la côte. Ou bien il ya aussi des ferries et taxi de l'eau à Olhao, AUSSI prenez-vous pour toutes les îles.
Tavira est une belle ville, et bien la peine d'explorer, me rappelle une Venise fané. L'architecture est très unique. Il est le côté sauvage de l'Algarve, et est très portugais.
