About Chris Hanlon

We fell in love with the Algarve in the early 80's, a dream that became reality when we visited this beautiful complex in 2002-out of curiosity we looked around & there it was our Casa de Sonhos (House of Dreams) the villa was just being finished, the builder looked just like the gorgeous José Mourinho (thinking about him even now makes my legs wobble).

With excitement, nerves & apprehension took the plunge & now had 14 fantastic years & quite simply can't get enough of this wonderful country, with it's quaint villages, beautiful beaches, stunning views, laid back life style, tasty local cuisine, complemented by a bottle of Sir Cliff's Vidal Nova & the most adorable people that we've had the pleasure in knowing. The Algarve also is an ideal settings for those romantic wedding.

Chris Hanlon purchased this villa in 2003

Why Chris Hanlon chose Albufeira

We love the position of the villa its an ideal location for partying on the strip or the peace and quite of the complex with easy access for the North, South and West of the Algarve and only 30 minutes from Faro 10 minutes to Algarve shopping what more could you want for a fun filled and relaxing time

Luxury,Peace and Tranquility

  • 5 of 5

This Villa has all the components needed for a perfect holiday, an ideal location, space in abundance both inside and out, privacy. quiet yet close enough to all amenities and almost every facility you could think of.

This is our third visit to Casa de Sonhas and already looking to book again. Albufeira is located mid way along the Algarve close enough to the airport for transport to and from but far enough away for aircraft noise not to be a problem and both sides of the Algarve are accessible via the N125 and A22 for sight seeing as Portugal is an amazing country and is not just about the beaches and bars.

The owners of this Villa really care about their guests. They provide information about the Villa, the equipment. the white goods, the tv, wifi etc, in addition there is a book they have created about local restaurants, shopping, transport etc.Whilst on holiday we had quite an obscure question so we emailed them and they came back straight away with several suggestions and a follow up email to see if we were ok.

The kitchen has every utensil and gadget needed and more, you have a huge BBQ adjacent to your own private pool where you can sit and drink the most amazing Portuguese wine (and very cheap) in wonderful surroundings. This is the Villa I can only dream of owning.
