Make holiday rental accommodation or villa in Guia, Portugal your home away from home

A holiday in a villa in Guia is an ideal option for almost any holiday in the sun. Cheap family holidays to Guia will be wonderfully entertaining, and there is a wide range of attractions for couples too. Located in the centre of the Algarve’s Atlantic coastline near Albufeira, Guia is a graceful, peaceful and very small Portuguese village just a few miles from the Algarve’s most popular and vibrant resort, Albufeira.

Things to do on holiday in Guia, Portugal

Much of your time will be spent lying back on one of the quiet Algarve beaches, just 15 minutes to the south of a Guia villa. This stretch of the Algarve coastline is blissfully peaceful and uncrowded, even during the peak season. Within just a few minutes of leaving your Guia villa you can stake out a plot on the huge Praia da Gale or one of the pristine cove beaches which surround the village.

Zoomarine is a magnificent place to take children. The performing dolphins and seals captivate children and adults alike, and the enormous water park also provides many hours of excited entertainment! However, with the range of children’s clubs available, parents can take a quick tour of Cliff Richard’s vineyard, the Adega do Cantor.

In the evenings, Guia springs to life from a quaint and charming Portuguese village into a hub of activity as the range of alluring restaurants tempt tourists and locals to sample traditional Portuguese specialties and select delicacies from around Europe. The weekly market is a huge blessing for those renting a Guia villa as the finest, freshest ingredients can be bought for very little.

There are a few sights which are defiantly worth investigation from a villa in Guia. The charming 17th century church is a wonderful place to visit, especially for the simply, yet beautifully, carved high altar inside.

Places to holiday in Guia, Portugal

When you take a holiday rental villa in Guia, Albufeira will become a familiar town. It is not only the most famous resort in the Algarve, but also has that sensational combination of stunning beaches and endless shopping which some people manage to combine wonderfully whilst on holiday! The old town of Albufeira has an exceptional number of interesting sights and restaurants, whilst the new centre is the location for a sport, leisure and activity. There are over twenty beaches, all with gloriously powder soft sand and many water sport opportunities to take advantage of.

Weather in Guia, Portugal

Basking in 300 days of sun every year and average temperatures annually of almost 20˚C, it is hard to take a self catering Guia villa during a poor week for weather. Winters are extremely mild, whilst during the summer months, daily temperatures routinely hit the mid 30’s (˚C).

Flights to Guia, Portugal

Faro International Airport (FAO) is the main centre for tourists arriving into the Algarve, and within half an hour of leaving the airport, you can be at the front door of any rental accommodation in Guia. A rental car is a great addition to have on holiday in Guia due to the rural setting, but local transport is cheap.

We travelled as a family of three, myself my husband and our 4 year old daughter. My mum also joined us for a few nights during our two week stay. On first impressions arriving in the middle of the night, we thought the villa was a little dated. However upon waking up in the morning, we realised this was purely cosmetic. It is an absolutely stunning villa, in the most beautiful peaceful, green setting. Sitting by the pool in the sunshine, is something we all dream of on these cold English days! The villa is fully equipped with everything you would ever need, the washing machine was a great addition and so useful. The whole villa inside and out was kept beautifully clean for the duration of our stay and the maids were kind and polite. Beds were comfortable, showers powerful, pool glorious, what more could you need! I guess the only thing missing is air con, but we managed perfectly well with the fans provided and the temperature hit Mid 30’s most days. The location was good, however we couldn’t have managed without the hire Car. We used the run about Clio offered by Carlos which was perfectly functionable, for a reasonable price. (Although no air con - so prepare to be hot!!) Id say a car is a must, unless you are prepared to shell out for cabs. We visited all the local towns, guia is lovely - you have to try the “best chicken”! It was delicious. Albufeira is ok, although a little over touristy. But loads to do and lots of places to eat so worth a trip. Vilamoura was a beautiful day out, the beach stunning and far more upmarket than Albufeira. We had a day out at the Zoomarine Park which was a fantastic day out and would highly recommend. Some days we did use the transfers offered by Hugo (contact details in the villa!) , he was fantastic and gave us some great recommendations of places to go so do ask him if you need local information. We had a couple of very minor complaints during our stay however Carlos was on hand at all times and all issues were dealt with quickly and efficiently. All in all, we had the most wonderful two weeks at villa Julia. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to anyone and would return in a heart beat. Thanks Carlos and team, we hope to be back again soon.
