Albufeira is one of the top holiday destinations in the Algarve. With its mix of New and Old Town. The old town remains an unusually pretty village with its narrow cobblestone streets, twisting lanes of whitewashed houses and terracotta roofs above a beautiful spread of beaches. In the day time walk around all the local shops and have a drink in one of the many Bar's and Restaurant over looking the picturesque beaches. In the night watch the town come alive with street performers and music . In one of the many great Restaurant's why not try chicken piri piri one of the local dishes.

In the New Town you have late Bars and Discos open in the early hours. With some more great Restaurants.

All this is with 15min walk from the Villa. Also don't forget about Slide and Splash, Aqualand, Zoomarine all with in 20min drive and some of finest golf course with in 10min drive from Villa Santa.

Villa Santa is located in the main town of Albufeira. Located close to the recently built Hotel Santa Eulalia (5 star) which is surrounded by bars, pubs, restaurants. The Hotel itself has a sports club with Tennis facilities, Gym, as well as many leisure activities.

Just a short drive to the many shops of Albufeira which is easily accessible via the main road into Town.

Reviewed March 18, 2013 NEW

The villa was lovely. The service was great. We would definitely stay there again. The only problem was the weather we would look to go there in the summer season to take full advantage of the pool and outdoor area. The villa was very spacious I will definitely recommend to other family and friends.

Beautiful, Spacious 6 Bedroom Villa Santa, Centrally Located In Albufeira
average rating of 4.0 based on 6 reviews

Mostly as advertised

  • 4 of 5

The photo with the listing is an example of poetic license. No such view from the property but otherwise the house came as advertised and we had a great time. A family vacation with 6 adults aged 35-65 and 6 children aged 1-8 was served very well by this house. Local rep was terrific and will be ABSOLUTELY needed or you’ll never find the house. Directions even with the address lost on various nav sites so you need to call the local guy. Internet didn’t work for first 2 days but they tried hard to fix. Lots of space and bathrooms and kitchen amenities very adequate. Literally 5 min stroll to excellent grocery store and 15 min to a lovely fully serviced beach. Plenty of local restaurants with very reasonable prices. HomeAway UK on top of things throughout the booking process ; thanks Jim. We felt very safe here and would overwhelmingly recommend this for a family vacation. There was even a locked gate to protect the three cars parked on site.

Spacious good layout but overall shabby

  • 3 of 5

Nice spacious property, however some of the furniture looking tired and shabby. Dining room set inside and outside ( one of the chairs inside collapsed when sat on which could have caused a nasty accident) beach chairs are all worn. Place needs a general sprucing up. Children loved the pool but didn’t initially realise how deep it was so depth indicator would be useful.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

This villa is beautifully modern and in a great location. We were a group of 10 girls, different ages and the location and villa suited everybody. We stayed for 3 nights (not long enough)

The garden/ pool area is a right little sun trap, we had the sun all day long.

The bbq came in very handy and had everything we needed.

Towels & toilet roll were provided although we did have to pop out for more toilet roll.

The villa had everything we needed and the kitchen was very modern.

The bedrooms and bathrooms are all a great size and the beds and pillows very comfortable!

The villa is a 10 mins walk from everything which came in very handy for the strip and the beach.

There is local shops about 5 mins walk from the villa that stocked everything we needed.

Communication with the villa manager over in Portugal and back home is brilliant and was always kept up to date.

I would definitely recommend this villa and Columbia Villas. We are already planning a return trip!

Perfect Villa for youth

  • 5 of 5

We have had a great time during our stay at villa santa. Everything was arranged by the villa owner, we had someone to contact when something was wrong and he replied quickly. The villa owner also arranged the transfer from the airport to the villa and back, which was very nice. The villa was in a good condition, every room had at least one airconditioner, all the appliances worked and were clean. The villa even had a dishwasher and a washing machine. The pool was clean and was cleaned once during our stay.
