Guestbook comments from the manager

Myself and my best friend stayed as this house for 9 nights and I only got home yesterday but had to write a review. We had a fantastic relaxed holiday with the old town of Albufeira on our door step.

Where do I start the place is huge with plenty of space for a big family. The layout of the house is great and the roof terrace is fantastic. What a retreat to relax all day with great views of around the town and the plunge pool is bigger than we thought it would be and used it daily to cool of from the fantastic weather we had. Cristina and Paulo were great from all the questions I kept emailing them before we went to printing my boarding pass off for me for the way home.

It was so nice to have the beach on our door step but still just on the outskirts from the real hustle and bustle. Taxis are cheap and we took one up to Lidls on the first day to get our groceries etc There is also an Aldi across the road from it and they are both large stores. Albufeira Old Town is a beautiful area with all that you could need and very family friendly. We will be back next year xxxx

Fantastic

  • 4 of 5

Owners were very helpful from suggesting airport transfers to suggesting places to go. Location is fantastic and house was perfect for 7 of us on a boys get away. We will be back. Only suggested improvement would be a heated pool on the roof as it's a bit chilly at night lol.

Wonderful stay

  • 4 of 5

We, a group of teenagers, really enjoyed staying in de Old Town House in Albufera. The location is perfect; the beach is just a 5 minute walk away and all the bars and shops were at walking distance too. The owner of the house was very helpful and we could always text her if we had any questions during our stay. The property was clean and well-maintained and the roof terrace is really magnificient. We had a wonderful stay.

Excellent location, lovely property

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a great stay in this townhouse. The location is the best you could ask for. Right in the centre of the Old Town but you couldn't hear any nightlife while sleeping. Everything is on your doorstep so no need for taxis. The house is very big with 4/5 bedrooms. The beach is very close so just a short stroll. We would definitely recommend this townhouse.

Fantastic town house located in the Old Town area.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for a week with my wife, daughter and five friends. We were very impressed with the recently refurbished town house which was well laid out and stocked with all the crockery, utensils and equipment that we needed (even a washing machine included).

The roof terrace was a glorious sun trap and was kitted out with a brick barbeque, sink and above ground pool.

The location was relatively quiet yet within easy reach of the beach, Old Town square and some of the quieter bars.

A comfortable nights sleep was ensured by the air conditioning that was installed throughout the property.

Paulo and Cristina (owners) made sure that we were very welcome upon arrival and were easily contacted in case we had any questions.

All in all a great weeks stay in a comfortable and spacious town house.

We would definitely recommend to anyone looking to stay in the area.
