Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Sao Bartolomeu de Messines - Villa Feliz Apartments

Apartment, holiday apartment, Algarve, Albufeira, Portugal, self catering, villa

Villa Feliz: Our comfortable villa situated in the edge of the small village of Portella de Messines. It is a very pretty spot offering peace and privacy close to the pleasant inland town of Sao Bartolomeu de Messines (commonly referred to as Messines), which lies about 15km north of Albufeira in the centre of the Algarve and is only 30 minutes by car from Faro Airport. We have welcoming local country bars and restaurants, which offer better value than the coastal resorts, and you will also savour the character and atmosphere of Portugal. The local people are friendly, especially if you make an effort with your phrase book. Main shopping can be done in Messines or, for immediate needs, there is a small general shop only a few minutes walk from Villa Feliz. If you want the sea or night life, it's only a 20 minute drive away.

For golfers, there are many superb courses from which to choose in an area 25 to 40 minutes drive from Villa.

About Cedric Jemmett and Peter Barber

We are a family business with managing residency in both Portugal and the UK, providing friendly help and assistance to Villa Feliz visitors at all times.

Cedric Jemmett and Peter Barber purchased this apartment in 1991

Why Cedric Jemmett and Peter Barber chose Sao Bartolomeu de Messines

It is the ideal alternative holiday venue to noisy packed coastal resorts and packages, but also providing easy fast access to lovely Algarve countyside, towns and beaches. Villa Feliz is a lovely summer resort, and also offers unique holiday qualities in spring and autumn months. Always lots of lovely bright warm sun and cool breezes, but some will enjoy Almond blossom time in January/February, wonderful displays of spring wild flowers, or lovely extra warm sea swimming in the autumn months. In the winter months some rain can be expected but the result is a much greener terrain through out the year than in neibouring Spain

What makes this apartment unique

Villa Feliz provides a pure 'chill out' environment. Easy also to enjoy the Albufeira beaches, the interesting Portuguses towns, and countyside, but with the pleasure of returning to the peace and tranquility of Villa Feliz.

A fantastic place!!

  • 5 out of 5
We are just back from the Villa Feliz and we had a fantastic time! It was so relaxing! The apartment was spotless and spacious, plenty of room for the 5 of us. (2 Adults and 3 Teenagers)
The pool, terrace and garden are perfect place to unwind. We had breakfast by the pool watching the Bee eaters flying over almost every day.
The location was perfect for us to, near enough to the crazy tourist towns to dip your toe in for an evening of crowd watching and TAT buying, but far enough away to have peace and quiet and really get away from it all.
We bought fresh provisions locally either from the small store round the corner or from the well stocked supermarket in Sao Bartolomeu de Messines 5-10mins away (we also picked Oranges, Lemons and Limes that grow all around the villa).
Peter and Fenella were great hosts, they had the apartment fridge stocked with essentials which made our late night arrival so much better. They were able to provide us with helpful information from where to eat to naming the birds in the garden.
Overall we would recomend the apartments at the Villa Feliz to anyone looking for somewhere to relax that offers easy access to alomost everywhere on the Algarve.

We have stayed at Villa Feliz many times over the last 10 yrs. It is in a lovely quiet location away from all the bustle along the coast, yet only a 20 min drive to get to the beaches. The locals are very friendly in the local shop & bar which are only a short walk away. The pool is lovely and large so you can have a proper swim, not just a dunk !
Infact my children 13 & 8, only let us go to the beach once in a fort-night, they loved the pool so much !
There are plenty of local restaurants nearby, but many are tucked away, ask Peter or Fenella for directions !
If you want night-life, English pubs/breakfasts etc then no, you will not enjoy this villa.
But for a relaxing holiday with a touch of the real Portugal you could do no better than Villa Feliz.

A taste of the real Portugal

  • 5 out of 5
Just returned from a lovely break at Villa Feliz. Peace and quiet away from the hubbub of the coast, yet only about 20 minutes from Albufeira. Beautiful views and lovely sunsets especially from the end of the pool terrace or up in nearby Alte. Great little restaurants and bars nearby for ‘proper’ Portugese food at good prices. Within easy reach of everywhere we wanted to see and do. Perfect. Thanks for a lovely holiday and all the helpful advice. Definitely be coming back.

location à recommander avec ou sans enfants...

  • 5 out of 5
bonjour,
nous recommandons vraiment ce logement.... La location est propre, calme, l'accueil est des plus familiales, la piscine est vraiment bien..... Nous y avons passé 15 jours en juillet 2011, avec deux enfants et franchement nous n'avons pas été déçu de la location et de son emplacement.....
Il est vrai qu'un véhicule est nécessaire pour se rendre à la plage et pour faire quelques balades, mais vous avez aussi à proximité de quoi vous balader (la ville de Alte avec ses sources ...).
Il y a vraiment de très jolies endroits à visiter, et de très belles plage....
Vous pouvez réserver les yeux fermés c'est vraiment génial.....

Auf dem Land, aber nicht im Abseits

  • 3 out of 5
Nach mehreren Aufenthalten in verschiedenen Regionen an der Algarve hatten wir dieses Mal eine ländliche Gegend gewählt, die dennoch kurze Wege zur Küste bietet, insbesondere auf der IC1 nach Albufeira.

Die Villa Feliz selbst bietet 4 Wohneinheiten, 2 kleinere App. mit Balkon im OG und 2 grössere App. im EG mit Terrasse, alle zum Garten mit Poolsicht. Wir waren mit 4 Personen 14 Tage in der Villa im 2-Schlafzimmer-Appartement, das dafür ausreichend Platz bietet.

Bei Ankunft am Abend fanden wir zur Überraschung auch ein gut sortiertes Lebensmittelpaket vor, das der Vermieter kostenlos zur Verfügung gestellt hatte. Dafür nochmals herzlichen Dank.

Garten und Pool sind angenehm gross und werden auch täglich gepflegt von Peter und Fenilla, die als gute Geister und Verwalter immer ansprechbar waren und Tipps gaben. Einkaufsgelegenheiten in unmittelbarer Umgebung und Messines gibt es reichlich, auch einheimische Lokale mit guter und preiswerter portugiesischer Küche. Soweit war alles positiv und hat mit den herrlichen Stränden an der Algarve und auch der sehr empfehlenswerten und reizvollen Westküste zu einem erholsamen Urlaub beigetragen.

Allerdings gibt es doch ein paar Einschränkungen hinsichtlich der Ausstattung und Sauberkeit der von uns genutzten Wohneinheit. Leider waren fast überall in der Wohnung an Decken und Wänden Spinnweben und zum Teil tote Insekten zu finden, auch die Küche und Fussböden waren nicht gerade sauber und es gab auch keinen Staubsauger, nur Kehrbesen. Das wäre sicher sehr hilfreich gewesen. Dafür funktionierten die Duschen in beiden Bädern (relativ klein) perfekt. Handtuchwechsel nur 1x in 14 Tagen ist definitv zu wenig. Die Betten sind für grössere Personen doch ziemlich kurz.

Die Küche ist sehr spartanisch ausgestattet. Es mangelt an Töpfen ebenso wie an Schüsseln. Wer hier für 4-6 Personen kochen will hat ein Problem. Der Zustand einiger Küchenutensilien ist geradezu eine Zumutung ( z.b.Wasserkocher, Feinsieb, kleiner Kochtopf). Alles ist überaltert. Seit 23 Jahren werden in der Villa Ferienwohnungen vermietet, vielleicht sollte hier mal etwas investiert werden, was letztlich allen künftigen Gästen zugute kommt und den Standard erhöht. Und nicht zuletzt hatten wir auch während unseres Aufenthalts in einigen Nächten erheblichen Lärm durch Hundegebell zu beklagen. Das liegt aber nicht im Ermessen des Vermieters, stört aber die Nachtruhe erheblich. Deshalb nur 3 Sterne! Man könnte mehr daraus machen! Schade

A lovely area of peace and privacy but only 30 minutes drive from Faro Airport, 5 minutes by car from the centre of typical Portuguese market town (Messines) and 15 minutes by car from sandy beaches, golf courses and amenities at Albufeira. A general shop/bar is only 3 minutes walk and several good reasonably priced restaurants are only 4/5 minutes by car.
