Description

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday villa in Aldeia das Açoteias - Villa Douro

Private pool, free DSL internet access, 5 min to the beach by foot

Villa Douro is in Acoteias, a small suburb of Albufeira, the tourist centre of Algarve. However, being that it is about 7 km from Albufeira, it is in no way in the middle of business of this city. It is in a clear residential area with other villas and houses/apartments. You can reach the beach in just a few minutes by foot (about 500 m). This part of the typical Algarve sand beach with a fascinating cliff-lined coast is constantly kept clean and is the perfect spot for sun bathing and relaxing. The 'Centre' of Acoteias is within walking distance. There is a cosy atmosphere there with several restaurants with typical Portuguese and international cuisine, there are also small pubs, shops and a supermarkets with bakery.

Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • Low Allergen Environment

Wonderful Villa

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 5 enjoyed a 4 night stay in this beautiful and spacious villa. Very close to grocery store and a few restaurants and the beach is about a 10 minute walk. Glad the weather was nice as we didn't use the air conditioning and really had no idea where the controls were since all notices in the house were in German. It would be great to have an English version. Excellent communication with owner and as previously stated, the housekeeper didn't speak any English so we Google Translated our conversation with her. Highly recommend for a relaxing visit to the Algarve Coast.

Beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful holiday in this lovely and clean villa. The location is great for the beach (only 7 min walk) and you have a supermarket, and restaurants just round the corner. The pictures of the house that are shown online match reality. The pool is huge and there is plenty of room everywhere - inside as well as outside. Several terraces and balconies to hang out and relax without felling crowded at all. We enjoyed the villa so much and would definitely recommend it to anyone planning a trip to Portugal. No doubt, we will be back next time we visit Portugal!

Great Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Loved the villa, loved the location. we booked this villa for an all girls holiday, 8 of us altogether from ages 60-21. The 2 double rooms caused a small problem but we managed, the villa had plenty of room for all and everything we needed. Only problems we had was we was not shown how anything worked so had no air con until we found controls on last day (it is located in the laundry room), the house keeper didn't speak very good English and we only saw her 3 times, on about the 5 day we had a leak and had no one to call. A welcome pack with instruction on how things work and emergency contacts is needed.

The resort is lovely and is suited to people the want a quite relaxing holiday but the night life is a short taxi ride away and will cost 13euro. I would go back and thinking of taking my family next year.

Beautiful Villa!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second consecutive year that my wife and I have stayed at the Villa Douro.

We have previously stayed at the 5 star Sheraton Algarve many times, and therefore know the area near to the Villa Douro very well. We wanted to try a villa holiday because the hotel was becoming too busy and crowded.

We looked for a private villa in the Falesia beach area and how lucky we were to find the Villa Douro!

The online reviews were all excellent and the owner (Jan) was so helpful and communicative that we had no hesitation in making a booking.

As other reviews have described, the villa is beautiful and very secluded. It is set in a quiet area close to a supermarket, a picturesque square with friendly restaurants and bars, plus a short walk to the excellent Falesia beach.

Perfect for families or couples the villa has much to offer, and backed up with such a friendly and helpful owner it is thoroughly recommended…we’ve already booked it again for another holiday next year (3rd time!).

FAMILY HOLIDAY JULY 2012

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this villa for our first family holiday to Portugal. The villa was fantastic and as described. There was plenty of room and did not feel crowded with six adults and one child. The villa was clean and well kept by the housekeeper. A local supermarket, souvenir shops and a travel centre for booking excursions was in the village square which was only a two minute walk from the house. There were also several restaurants in the square. The local beach was spotless and we always found a quiet spot to sunbathe andit was only a 5-10 minute walk from the house. All correspondence with the house owner was punctual, friendly and very helpful. I would definitely recommend this villa to any party looking for a quiet, relaxing holiday with easy access to nearby busier resorts.
