We were extremely happy with our choice of Villa Tilia . It was spacious and modern and very well equipped and beautifully maintained . We felt that the cleaners visited a little too often but this was just a personal observation and many guests would have loved it . We loved the location, being within walking distance of several beautiful beaches ,some pretty rocky coves and some with long stretches of golden sand. Buses were also within walking distance so it would not be necessary to have a car but we had hired one from the airport so were able to travel to some other towns . We would give Albufeira a miss another time as it was very commercialised and dedicated to the English ,with many English bars and restaurants ,not very Portugese at all! i have to give a mention to the very local Management company who were extremely helpful and responded to small problems very quickly . We would definitely return to Villa Tilia again and highly recommend it

Amazing holiday in a beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a beautiful stay in this villa. Pick-up from airport and key collection was far easier than we anticipated as we had a late evening flight.

As we stayed in the villa in April, pool heating was a great extra.

Rep came the next day for a meet & greet and gave us useful information about the villa and the area.

Garden was well kept, pool and villa were very clean. Villa felt very spacious due to its beautiful living room with high ceiling. Villa was extremely well equipped, including wi-fi and air con.

Great beaches (all with bars/restaurants), supermarkets, restaurants and a golf course are nearby (great area). Nearest shopping centre is in Guia (a 10 min drive).

We can only recommend this property and can't wait to be back!

Absolutely fabulous

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at villa tilia, the pool area is just beautiful and the villa in general excellent. The area is an ideal base to get around Albufeira, the beach is only a short walk with plenty of restaurants and bars.The villa was cleaned midweek which was great and any questions we had were dealt with promtly. We will be back next year.Thanks to Klaus and his team for looking after everything so well. David, Mairead and family.

Spectacular holiday in a spectacular property

  • 5 of 5

The central Algarve, west of Albufeira, always has been our preferred holiday destination, so we know quite a few villas in this area. However our stay in this villa was special, as it exceeded our expectations.

The description and photos were accurate and gave us a very good idea of the villa and its location. It is a very bright, open space and very well equipped (inlcuding a brand new kitchen and wardrobes) villa. It was clean (very friendly cleaning ladies) and very well maintained - the garden and swimming pool (can be heated) were simply immaculate.

The service of the local management company was excellent - they provided useful information and handled all our requests in a very friendly and efficient way (it is great to know that there is always someone to assist you at any time).

The villa enjoys a peaceful location, within walking distance of good quality restaurants, close to several top quality beaches, including Gale and Salgados, the Salgados Golf Course and nature reserve. Guia and Albufeira town are located within a short drive.

It was definitely one of our nicest holidays in this area and we would recommend this property to everyone. We ourseleves will be back soon!

Traumhafter Urlaub - Erholung pur

  • 5 of 5

Meine Freundinnen und ich haben eine wundervolle Zeit in der Villa Filia verbracht und waren mit unserer Wahl sehr zufrieden. Wir sprechen schon über unseren nächsten Urlaub in Portugal ;)

Die Villa ist wunderschön und sehr sauber, der Pool traumhaft. Wir waren 9 Tage in der Villa Tilia, 2 x kamen Reinigungsdamen vorbei, 1x davon wurden unsere Handtücher gewechselt. Auch der Pool wurde regelmäßig gewartet.

Ebenso ist die Lage in Vale de Parra perfekt: auf der einen Seite kann man die Ruhe genießen und auf der anderen ist man in wenigen Fahrminuten in Albufeira, wo es super Möglichkeiten zum Ausgehen gibt.

Ein kleiner Supermarkt ist in 10 Minuten zu Fuß erreichbar, und auch zum Meer sind es nur 15 Minuten zu Fuß.

Auf ein Mietauto würde ich keinesfalls verzichten um die Algarve zu erkunden, gibt viele tolle Ausflugsziele und sportliche Aktivitäten, die man machen kann.

Ich kann die Villa jedem nur weiterempfehlen und auch wir sind bestimmt nicht das letzte Mal dort gewesen.
