About Steve Bigland

My name is Steve, married to Margaret. We have three grown up daughters and five grandchildren, with one on the way. We love to spend as much time as we can in Portugal as the kids love the beaches, the swimming pool and of course the weather. My past time is golf and where better to play golf than in the Algarve?

Steve Bigland purchased this house in 2010

Why Steve Bigland chose Mosqueira

We chose our property because we regularly holidayed in the Algarve and fell in love with it. The people are friendly, the beaches are amazing, the golf courses are some of the best in the world and you couldn't ask for a better climate.

What makes this house unique

We love so much about our property but the main attraction for us is the peaceful location, the stunning views and the large living accommodation. The kids' favourite part of the property is the open spaces and the large pool!

Property is great, three large bedrooms, large living space and only a minutes walk to the pool.

  • 4 of 5

Property is really good for families, we stayed with our three boys and there was plenty of space for them to play and they all had their own beds. At the rear of the property you have a beautiful communal garden to look out over. The pool is just a few seconds walk from the property and our boys loved it, small kids pool was brilliant for our 3 year old! The overall complex is very quiet and sometimes we had the pools to ourselves!!

A car is essential for this property as there is very little available within walking distance. Brilliant shopping mall (Algarve shopping) is only a 10-15min drive and here you'll find a fantastic range of shops and a large supermarket. Also a fantastic selection of beaches are all within a 10minute drive!! Albufeira is also approximately a 10min drive. At the property there is an underground carpark accessed by an internal staircase to your property , however during our stay we could not get the garage door to work, (we did mention this) and unfortunately we were only.told on our last day that the key fob wasn't working and therefore we hadn't been given it for our check in. However, this wasn't a major issue as you can park your car outside just beside you property. Air conditioning in the rooms is brilliant, although clear instructions (without having to search through drawers for the manuals) would be best to be left visible on how to work the air conditioning as it took my husband quite sometime to understand how to work it. Good range of cooking equipment and utensils provided. All bed linen and towels also provided, very useful. Sky TV and internet was greatly appreciated by us all.

Overall, I would recommend this property, especially to families. We really enjoyed our stay. Thank you.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review, I'm so glad you and your family had a great time. Sorry about the garage fob we didn't know about it.The air conditioning Caroline should have shown you how to use it, there should be instructions in the hallway. Regards Steve

Fantastic Holiday

  • 5 of 5

My Family and I had a wonderful and unforgettable stay in Albufeira. At first glance i knew i had selected the perfect place to spend our 7 day holiday.

The Complex itself was the perfect oasis of calm, providing a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere. All rooms were of a good size and the bathrooms were immaculate.

The pool was a nice size, clean and rarely had anyone in it, the smaller pool was also great for small children.

Venturing out to the old town the beach or into villamoura is only a short drive or taxi away, we used the bbq a couple of nights which was of a high standard.

I would highly recommend staying here for families or friends alike and will definitely return for a holiday in the near future.

Fantastic summer holiday in beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

We took our little girl to the Algarve last year and we had a brilliant time. Steve (the owner) was very helpful from the time of booking until check out. We could not fault the property and it was just as we expected and more. The swimming pools were great for our little one. Everything was very clean, modern and well maintained. The views from the balcony made it for us and the location was perfect as it is was very peaceful but at the same time was close to the resort centres with all the bars and restaurants! We love to take our daughter to the beach and we were spoilt for choice. We would certainly recommend this holiday home and we look forward to staying again ourselves this coming June!

The Vila Branca complex is a brand new, modern and well maintained development which is located just outside Albufeira between Vilamoura and Vale Navio set in the very pretty Algarvean countryside. There is a small cafe directly opposite the complex and several bars, cafes, restaurants and a supermarket on the main road which is about 10 minutes walk from the complex. The townhouse is a 5 minute drive to Albufeira's famous strip with its bars, restaurants and late night entertainment and the old town of Albufeira is a good family night out. The resort of Vilamoura with its famous marina is approximately 15 minutes drive. The very pretty fishing village of Olhos d'Agua is also about a 7-8 minute drive from the complex and offers a quieter, more relaxed day or evening out.

There are many beautiful beaches to visit as well as water parks and a Zoomarine in the local area. There is also the Albufeira bullring which some of our guests have recommended.
