About Andrew Hart
We are a family from Scotland who have been holidaying in the Algarve for 30 years. We travel over as often as we can. We fell in love with the Algarve, and we just love the friendly people, the food, the climate and the golden beaches.
Andrew Hart purchased this Villa in 2006
Why Andrew Hart chose Alporchinhos
Our little slice of Portugal in Senhora da Rocha has been everything we imagined it would be. The area is quiet and away from the hustle and bustle, yet within easy access of local restaurants and attractions. Seafood lovers MUST visit the local fish market for fresh prawns, squid, or sea bass for the barbecue ...but don't forget the chicken, one of the Algarve's best chicken piri-piri restaurants is only a short drive away in Armacao de Pera.
What makes this Villa unique
We have renovated the villa from top to bottom. Everything has been modernised and "opened" up for easy living giving a lovely bright and airy atmosphere. The roof terrace offers "boas vistas" over the central Algarve with a sea view. The complex has a 24 hour our reception who are more than happy to help with any questions, book taxis or trips away for you and the family. The terrace is ideal for enjoying a glass of wine or a cold beer as a sundowner, a barbecue or a quiet read at the end of a day in the sun. Bliss! Have a great holiday.

Fabulous villa, with everything we needed. All amenities on our doorstep in a beautiful location
Great villa in fabulous location. Everything you could want/need. We had an amazing time here.
Lovely villa stay
Had a fantastic 9 days here in Porches. Villa was spacious and homely. All you could require down to freezer bags!
We hired a car which we recommend, and site had parking next to villa. Swimming area was more than we expected with a main, a paddling, an indoor and a quiet pool. Overlooking pools was restaurant serving good food for the price and well priced drinks with the pool access tags.
Past the pools is steps to beach which has a tunnel leading to next smaller if not prettier beach. Both are beautiful.
With car you can get to Armecao de Pera main town and beach in 5 mins, Albufeira old town in 20 mins, or if you go the other way Praia da marinha in 15 mins or Praia da rocha in 30.
Restaurants a plenty. Too many to recommend.1st time in Algarve and will definitely return. We were 2 adults and 2 children aged 7.
Thanks Casa do Hart
Thanks very much for your lovely review, we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay and you are welcome back anytime. All the best
We had a brilliant honeymoon with our 15 month old son. The villa is set up well for children and the complex had everything we needed. The only thing missing was a high chair but it was only a minor issue for us. Supermarket is 2 minutes drive away which is very handy. The beaches are beautiful and we bought some stunning hand painted pottery from Porches. We would definitely go back.
Lovely Villa, and a great holiday.
We enjoyed a fantastic holiday here at Senhora Da Rocha, the complex is lovely and very close to the beach, and the Villa is extremely well designed and stocked with everything you need, a real home from home.
The owners were great from the moment we booked right though to making sure we got to the villa and enjoyed our stay..we will be back!!
All the best Emma, Paul and the kids.
Beautiful villla, lovely complex
We love Portugal and have stayed in Villa Senhora da Rocha on numerous occasions as has everything you need and is perfect for family holidays, couples holidays etc. This villa is by far the best we have stayed in - it has all your home comforts, even down to towels for the pool! Very clean and modern and has all the facilities you need.
We have a baby, so being on one level was ideal as we didn't need to worry about him falling over a balcony etc. There was also a cot put up in the main bedroom for him, with lovely kiddy blankets.
We also have teenagers and they loved the fact that they could watch the DVDs which were in the villa (if they are happy, you are happy!!). They were also over the moon that there were tennis rackets and balls in the villa for use on the complex.
The owners were excellent and were a pleasure to deal with from start to finish. They were always available for any queries and recommendations on the local area. It was a lovely touch to have a bottle of wine and water in the villa for our arrival.
We would have no hesitation in recommending this villa to anyone and would love to stay again if we ever returned.

Great villa for 4 persons
We had a great stay in the Villa. The villa is very equipped and well located in the middle of the garden of the residency Vila senhora Da Rocha. We recommend this place!
Vila Senhora da Rocha offers the choice of 2 excellent golden beaches with clear blue sea.

The other, more secluded beach is called Praia Nova and is accessed down a flight of steps at the complex. The Armacao de Pera beach is a little further away, around a 5 minute drive or 20 minute walk.
