About the property

A self catering rental very close to Old Town Albufeira, attractions and beaches

This 3-bedroom 2-bathroom villa has its own private pool, overlooking a quiet public park. This is a front-line property and is not overlooked by any properties opposite. The house is ideally located, close enough to the action but far enough from the bustle. The famous Old Town centre of Albufeira with its tree-lined main square is 10 minutes walking distance away through the park. This is where the evenings come to life with vibrant bars, live music and plenty of restaurants to sample. Another 2 minutes walk brings you to Peneco Beach and the famous Fisherman's Beach. The Marina, New Town and the Strip are a 3-minute taxi ride away.

Close to the villa are the health centre, supermarket, cafe, bar and family-run restaurant so a car is not compulsory for your holiday! A 10 minute walk brings you to Caliços outdoor market where farmers and fishermen offer you the freshest produce. Close to the market is Albufeira bus station, from where you can catch a bus to the Western Algarve, the Eastern Algarve and Spain, or connect with the train to Lisbon, two hours away

Great private villa in excellent location close to the old town

  • 5 of 5

Recently stayed in this villa with my wife and small child and parents. The villa is excellent, very spacious, with modern amenities and entertainment (table tennis table was well used, although it caused a few arguments before nights out ;-)). The pool is fantastic, with optional heating which we decided against given the time of year. Saying that, we managed a brief dip on the hotter days! Outside area is great, with a private cabana which is well shaded and well equipped with loungers and BBQ, etc. Location wise it is a short walk, approx 10-15 minutes to the old town along a trail avoiding the main roads. There is a main supermarket style shop which equips everything on the same street as well as some small cafes and other ammenities. The booking was simple and helped me out with a cot bed for small child as well as stair gate etc. The host was great, we were little late due to car hire but no problems and also answered a query I had in the middle of the break. All in all, a great break and can reccomendations this villa! Thank you

Perfect place in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

Recently stayed in this villa for a girls holiday and had a wonderful time. The pictures definitely do not do this place justice! Was pleasantly surprised by this villa. Great location not too far from the old and new town but not too close. Would definitely recommend! Jill was lovely and very accommodating. Thanks Jill!x

Lovely spacious villa in a good location, short walk to old town, good shop next door, large pool.

  • 4 of 5

Large well maintained pool and pool area which gets the sun all day. Shaded area provided by a cabana with seating area. 3 story house providing good spacious accommodation. Bedrooms and main bathroom lovely and big. The basement is massive proving good cool space although we didn't use it as all slept upstairs. Would benefit from air conditioning in the heat of the summer. Really good supermarket next door with everything you would ever need. Nice walk in to the Old Town takes about 15 minutes using the exercise park created, this is popular with fitness trainers etc. The villa is in a good location for those not wanting to hire a car. There was some road noise from the main road which is close by but not an issue. Albufeira Old Town is full of character with little cobbled streets, plenty of restaurants, bars and areas to suit all tastes. Beautiful beaches and scenery. Would definitely recommend Albufeira and this villa.

Beautiful accommodation and close to the beach and town

  • 5 of 5

My stay here was perfect! The pool was clean and warm and the kids spent the days and evening in and out of the pool. The house was exactly as seen on the pictures and everything that we could possibly need was available. Jill and Ken were brilliant in keeping me updated on my stay and had a folder containing recommendations on places and restaurants we could visit based on what you are looking for while in Portugal. It was a great look up to plan a day or two out. I would definitely recommend this villa and hope to return!

Close enough, but not too close!!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I stayed in this villa a short while ago. The idea was to have a very chilled, laid back break and soak up some sunshine. This place could not have been better for that, everything we needed was in easy walking distance. There was a supermarket 2 minutes away for the basics, Aldi 10 minutes further for stocking up on Portugals' excellent and very reasonable wine, a bakery and fast food place within a stones throw also.

Whilst the villa is set in a residential (and so quiet) area, the walk into the Old Town was very easy - manageable even by the friend with slight mobility problems. Here we found every sort of night out you could want - fabulous restaurants, relaxing bars, lively clubs, we were spoilt for choice, and also very happy to be leaving for a good nights peaceful sleep at the end of the day!! (We found the owners very helpful and knowledgable about places to go depending on what sort of night out we wanted btw).

The facilities in the villa itself were lacking nothing, comfy beds, plenty of storage, full kitchen with fridge, freezerand dishwasher, great shower and all spotless.

The pool area was my favourite, you could get the sun around it for at least 10 hours. The water was soft and not overly harsh with chemicals so your skin did not feel dry after a dip.

What could have made this holiday better? More time lol!!

Car: not necessary

Alto dos Caliços is a quiet residential suburb of Albufeira, 10 minutes walk from the Old Town. Our house is on the front-line of this urbanisation so isn't overlooked and has a semi-rural outlook. The river which once ran past our gate has been transformed into a delightful tree-lined walkway which winds its way down the valley into the Old Town.

At the bottom of the hill by the health centre/hospital there is a well-stocked supermarket, a couple of bar/cafes,a piri-piri chicken take-away and a family restaurant. Up on the hill are the Albufeira bus station, daily outdoor farmers market and weekly gypsy market.

Alto dos Caliços is well served by the town circuit GIRO buses which pass every 15 minutes, as well as local EVA buses which connect to every major town in the Algarve and the railway station which takes you to Lisbon. Airport transfers are typically 30-35 euros each way, so you won't need a hire car unless you actually want one.
