As this was our first visit to Portugal and the southern coast, we couldn't have asked for a better experience than our stay at Casa Semaphore!
Our grandson (16) said his only requirements were a great view and nice pool. Well, we got that in spades. Privacy, views, lovely and luxurious, spotless home and pool, with glass doors all over that opened to terraces and gave you an outdoor feeling indoors. We were 3 generations with grandchildren 16,13 and 11 who each found their perfect nook in this spacious villa. Marie Diane, one of the owners.was instrumental in welcoming us before the visit with car rental,boat rental and perfect directions, along with any other information requested. Tim, the pool manager/caretaker gave us recommendations for excellent, inexpensive and memorable restaurants. Natalia came to the villa daily and inobtrusively tidied the bedrooms and cleaned the bathrooms.Having rented a number of times in Europe, we've never felt so cared for. Grandkids and grown ups loved the water park and swimming off the beach in a cave at the Benagil caves. There was much to do but we relished the peace and guiet of the area as we had just had a very busy week prior to our stay. Well located, near airport, beaches, restaurants and stores and yet away from the touristy, crowded areas. Can't say enough about Casa Semaphore and our wonderful visit.
