But within easy reach of restaurants, shops and beaches nearby. The owners have thought of everything you would need for a Villa Holiday very well equipped kitchen, plenty of space for all of us not to be on top of each other. Three different dining areas, plenty of sunbeds. Bedrooms are spacious. Plenty enough towels for the pool side and the bathrooms. The utility room is bigger than my kitchen. Taxis are very reasonable for going in to Albufeira Car is a must for shopping and visiting the beaches around the coast. We used the Museu restaurant and the food and service were excellent they also have a childrens' menu that offers decent food, not chips with everything!! One suggestion , a carton of milk and a bottle of water in the fridge would be nice for arrivals. Alistair McGregor is very helpful at the agency office, we booked golf with him and a hire car, we also had a problem with the swimming pool which he came out and checked for us he arranged for it to be cleaned within an hour of his visit. Would recommend this Villa and I am sure we would all love to return for another holiday in the future .

This is an excellent villa with great facilities including superb pools and poolside terrace. The villa layout is spacious, providing home from home comforts and ideal if you are a couple or a family. All bedrooms are ensuite and the recently upgraded kitchen is great for making those quick holiday snacks or meals on the nights we did not want to leave the poolside. Azul is secluded and surrounded by lovely gardens, olive groves and fields: However we always feel safe and secure in the villa. At the end of the day the electric shutters are such a simple and effective security measure. Whatever you are looking for Villa Azul has it all: Our favourite is very much to relax by the pool in the peaceful, secluded and quiet surroundings and regularly cool off in the wonderful pool. The outdoor space is Villa Azul's top feature! Like us you might never want to leave the terrace and those blue, blue welcoming pools! The location of Azul is perfect, a short drive to the beach for a change of scene or visit Albufeira or the fantastic Zoomarine for the day - so much to see and do! The local restaurants and shops are in walking distance and are very welcoming as are all the Portuguese people. We hire a car and it's great for getting out for a little retail therapy too - loving the Algarve Shopping Mall. All the staff at Principal Office are so friendly and organise and look after everything. Welcome food pack and poolside towels are most appreciated. The villa is clean and the maids, gardeners and pool men are polite and very efficient. Florence is a star and extremely helpful! Thank you for taking care of us again. We love it so much we have returned numerous times: So the best recommendation I can give is that we have already booked for next summer! Once you have experienced Villa Azul you won't want to go anywhere else!

Vale da parra is a lovely area close to the beach, restaurants, shops but not overly busy. Although it's only 8 mins away by car to albufeira if you like the busy nightlife. Casa dos pais is a wonderful house quiet location, walking distance to shops, bars and restaurants. Nice and modern and all you need for an enjoyable stay. The agent Carmo is lovely, pool man does turn up 3 times a week but at least you have a clean pool! The place is fully equipped iron, hairdryer, DVD, tv, dishwasher etc. Cannot fault it. Also I have to say home and away staff superb very helpful and accommodating. No more searching the Internet for holidays anymore. Booked up for next year, please avoid times when I go though as I don't want to miss out myself lol!
