Highly recommend this villa

This villa was absolutely perfect for 2 families with children. Great luxury design and had everything we needed. Beautiful and clean, serviced twice a week, excellent pool with a shallow end perfect for a 3 year old, great location, quiet, and great views. Can't recommend it enough.

The Management Company was also excellent.

average rating of 5.0 based on 12 reviews

Wow superb accommodation!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were all very impressed with this villa. It was very clean, very well presented and modern. It had all the amenities needed like a washing machine, dishwasher and dryer.

The main highlights of this villa was the heated pool which our two you young children loved playing in for hours each day and the beach which was a 5 minute walk.

The only downsides were that the rooms were not all ensuites and the nearest supermarket was a 15 minute walk but the walk did us good as otherwise we would have just stayed in the villa for the duration of our stay.

Florence and the team dealt with our booking and queries very efficiently and we would no hesitation in recommending this villa and booking through Florence.

Superb property, fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

We are fortunate to have stayed in some amazing properties and this one only exceeded our expectations. The photographs are true and the space and facilities made it the perfect choice for 10 of us - from grandchildren up to grandfather! The pool was the main attraction as it is big enough to swim and play in, with enough loungers etc to relax too. The fact you can walk to the beach and a couple of really good restaurants (beach restaurant great for drinks/snacks at lunch and also excellent fresh produce at night, the other restaurant is fabulous and more upmarket but still good value, on the road just up from the house) is such a bonus. Don't bother going further afield! But if you do, taxis are good value too.

The cleanliness and service from the management company and taxi transfers were the best we have experienced. Local shops (Hapimag complex 5 mins, good Spar with butchers/bakery 15 min walk, easy to get a taxi back with large shop, also big supermarket a drive away). BBQ with fab fresh produce.

The size of the property and bathrooms meant everyone had their own space if needed.

If I win the lottery I would buy the property immediately! Will definitely recommend and visit again. Also great for a few couples.

Thank you to everyone involved. Worth every penny! Portugal is also very good value.

Fantastic Villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely holiday at villa Vistamar. The villa is spacious, clean, modern and well equipped. It is perfectly located with the beach a pleasant 10 min stroll away and supermarket 15 min walk or short drive. Perfect villa for a large family or big group of friends. Would definitely recommend!

Awesome villa

  • 5 of 5

This villa is top range. It's a really modern villa which is decorated beautifully. The pool is stunning and the location is lovely. We loved Coelha beach and it was great being so close as we could nip back to the villa when it got too hot for the kids.

I would recommend a car as to get shopping for lots of people you will need a car to transport it.

Would love to return!

Myself and my three grown up children stayed in this villa, all I can say its its exceptional, the whole villa was immaculate, the bedrooms were like staying in a 5 star hotel, with proper duvets and not single sheets, We only left the villa twice to eat as you just felt wrapped up in luxury, its very peaceful and the view is spectacular, I would highly recommend that you book this villa for your holiday

Great Place to stay - had a great break with children and grandchildren. There was plenty of space and the house was even better than the pictures! Florence was great to work with and was helpful during the entire trip. We'll book again!

Praia da Coelha
Car: recommended

Galé/ Vale da Parra,

Approx 4 Km to the west of Albufeira Old Town , is the stunningly beautiful ‘Blue Flag’ beaches of Galé pronounced Gaar-lay). The beach is around 5km long with clean golden sand. Therefore even in the height of summer one can find plenty of space to sunbathe. The beach is made up of soft sand and is safe for children. It has all the usual water sports one could expect in the summer time. However from November to March it is very quiet and you can walk west, along the Ocean edge, to Armação de Pêra. This walk is about 5 Km long passing soft sand dunes with the Nature reserve of Salgados on your right. As you arrive into Armação de Pêra you will see many quite quaint beach bars along with many fishermen’s boats.

Turning left (east) on Gale beach, the scenery changes entirely, with small cliffs and rock formations where you will regularly see anglers fishing for their evening meal. The cliffs form many intimate coves that give a safe and natural wind break, where children can play in the crashing waves or explore the rock pools. From here it is possible to clamber over the rock and head east to as far as São Rafael beach (recently voted one of the top ten beaches in Europe), passing São Lourenço, Evaristo,–Castelo and Coelha beaches, each with their own beach restaurants and character and absolutely stunning. In between these beaches there are many small sandy coves, where you can sit for hours undisturbed. Also the cliff walks between these beaches makes you feel you are on some desert island with lots of species of natural flower and fauna.

To the North of Galé (approx) 2km is the small and pleasant village of Vale da Parra with its restaurants and bars.


Guia has its own very special character. It has a good mix of Portuguese, ex pats & tourists . It is also the home of Chicken Piri-Piri, which is absolutely delicious! There are many Chicken Piri-Piri restaurants as well as others that serve both Portuguese and international cuisine. There are also bars, banks, chemist, post office, fruit and veg. market, bakery and mini market. The small urbanisations of Barrancos and Quinta dos Alamos are on the edge of the village and only a short walk to the centre.

From Guia it is only a few minutes drive to the Algarve Shopping Centre. Here you will find many shops including a very large supermarket. There are also many cafes and restaurants plus a cinema and bowling alley. So plenty to do!

A five minute drive to the west of Guia is the very popular Zoomarine. This is simply a must for all the family as it has so much to offer. It has a fantastic 4 dimensional cinema which is great fun. There is also a 'Big Wheel' where, once at the top, one can see for miles. Zoo marine also boasts an excellent and educational underwater wildlife tour with all sorts of strange creatures swimming around. The real star attraction though, and the real highlight of your visit, will be the highly entertaining 'Dolphin show'. The Dolphins, which are very well looked after, do all sorts of clever tricks, including leaping many meters out of the water and into the air. All the family, especially the kids will love this!

There are also several high quality water parks within a short drive from the Village.

Albufeira Old Town,

About 10 minutes away by car to the East of Vale da Parra is the Old town of Albufeira. It is, and has been for many years, a favourite destination of the British and the Irish. Although there have been many changes over the years since I first arrived, the 'Old Town still has that magical feel to it. Sitting in a bar or restaurant in the square with a glass of wine or beer in hand listening to the street entertainment is absolutely fantastic.

From the square, it is a very leisurely stroll through the cobbled streets to 'Fishermans Beach'. Sadly, most of the fishermen have now moved to a new site nearer to the modern Albufeira Marina. However, there is an absolutely fantastic golden sandy beach that the kids will love. Also there is several super restaurants serving a range of various cuisine. These restaurants are beautifully shielded from the wind, especially in the winter, and are a real sun trap.
