Casa Julia is a no-smoking villa with modern amenities and many subtle features to make villa practical and comfortable to suit a wide range of guest needs. Located in Pereiras, just outside of Almancil in Loulé area of Central Algarve, about ten minutes drive from Vilamoura and 15 minutes from Faro Airport.

Renovated in 2004 to create purpose-designed accommodation for wheelchair users, with ramp from front of the house leading to the garden and villa entrance for easy access. All rooms are on ground level with door and corridor widths wide enough to accommodate most wheelchair users. Clearance between doors and frames at least 800mm. Spacious shower-room with: wheel-in shower area with grab bars and fold-down seat; corner toilet with hand-basin, wall-mounted and drop-down rails; and thermostatic mixer controls to washbasins and shower.
