This villa is a stunning property, with everything you could need. The attention to detail of decor and coordination of colour scheme throughout out made it a tranquil, calming place to stay. Home from home. The cleaner and her husband who maintain the villa were so lovely and helpful, regularly checking we had everything we needed, changing bedding/towels but informed us when they were doing this so no issues with privacy.
Surrounding area was pleasant, you need a car, beaches are short drive away, then just carry on up the coast to explore whichever beach is your preference.
Near to the villa is a lovely restaurant and a tapas place. A couple of petrol stations that sell essentials are 3 mins walk away, then you have Aldi close drive away 5 mins. The large Algarve shopping centre is 10 minute drive away which I found quite cheap and addictive to pick up a bargain. They have a massive supermarket their too.
To be honest this was my first trip to Portugal and loved it, loved the people, the place. This won’t be my only visit.
I almost don’t want to do a review of this villa as don’t want this little gem booked up when I try to go again. But fairs fair it was a delightful stay, plus the pool was the icing in the cake 🍰�.
Wow! What a lovely review and thank you for taking the time to write such glowing feedback which will be passed on to the owner, villa manager and all the team here at The Villa Agency. We sincerely hope to hear from you again in the future.

Vale de Parra is to the west of Albufeira and has some of the Algarve's finest beaches, the best known is probably Galé, a vast expanse of golden sand with restaurants and water sports, including jet-skiing and parasailing; there is also a 'banana' - great fun for the kids! Galé can be busy in the summer but turn down any of the tracks along the coast road and you are likely to find a quiet beach or bay. Some, like Praia da Coelha, are a fair walk from the nearest parking area but worth the effort. São Rafael and Praia do Castelo are more accessible and have good beach bars. There are some wonderful restaurants, for example São Domingos, which has a good menu (including some excellent vegetarian dishes) and our clients are made especially welcome here. Also, O Marinheiro, which specialises in fresh fish. The Cerro d'Aguia is a ridge which runs from the western side of Albufeira, parallel to the coast with lovely views across the countryside to the marina, which is home to some stylish yachts, several cafés, restaurants and an ice cream parlour. Sea fishing trips, dolphin safaris, diving (see Indigo Divers) and other water activities are available from the marina and in the summer there are open-air concerts and fashion shows. To the west of Vale de Parra, Quinta da Saudade is a mature estate of privately owned villas with a restaurant and bar. It is only five minutes from the beaches and just above Salgados Golf with a club house and restaurant (where our clients receive a 25% discount on green fees). Guia is close by; slightly inland and famous for its modestly priced restaurants serving chicken piri-piri (dry cooked, with a spicy chilli marinade). The nearby Algarve Shopping complex has numerous boutiques, cinemas and ten pin bowling and plenty of food outlets.
