Kids First Holiday Abroad !

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Villa for one week Aug 19 - 26. Ana Marie was warm and welcoming and offered good advice on places to visit and eat. The accommodation was simply the best we have ever stayed in. While the website describes it accurately you have to see it to fully appreciate it. It is a quiet location, you can walk to Albufeira or taxi which is approx €4. The Villa is very spacious with all modern appliances and very secure. The pool was never over crowded and very well maintained, always spotless. As it was our kids first time abroad they were really impressed. They loved the pool at their back door and made full use of it. We would recommend Ricardo's Italian restaurant in the Old Town the food was excellent as was the service.

Once again we highly recommend a stay here for family or romantic break. We have already recommended to family and friends and we look forward to returning ourselves!

A very relaxing and enjoyable stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the apartment for a week in April 2014, and had a fantastic time. There were only two of us, but the apartment nevertheless represented fantastic value for money. With the two bedrooms and two bathrooms,the apartment would also be ideal for two couples or a family.

The apartment was very clean and comfortable. We were very much after a week of relaxation and the apartment was perfect for this... with four balconies and plenty of outdoor furniture, we were able to follow the sun around the apartment all day, and had a nice BBQ in the fantastic built in BBQ. We also enjoyed relaxing around the quiet pool area (which we pretty much had to ourselves).

There was a really nice walk into Albufeira old town - about 15-20 minutes, fully pedestrianised. In terms of local amenities, there is a supermarket 5 mins walk away (with a well stocked meat and fish counter for BBQ supplies!). Directly below the apartment is a cafe and a bar/restaurant, and a couple of minutes walk down the bottom of the hill was an authentic Portugese restaurant with a lovely outdoor area to have a drink or a meal (the Portugese steak was sublime).

All in all a very enjoyable stay. As suggested in a previous review, the owners may want to consider a little directory including instructions on using the appliances and details of the supermarket location/how to walk to town etc (but in saying that, all of this was easy enough to work out for ourselves anyway).

Peter was very communicative and provided plenty of information in advance of our stay. As no other guests were arriving on our departure day, we were most grateful that Peter allowed us to stay on until late on our final day at no extra charge, due to our evening flight home.

We can highly recommend this aparment and will very likely be back ourselves!

Farm Village Condo

  • 5 of 5

Well appointed accommodation, pristine. Outdoor areas well maintained. Location was ideal - close to train station (Ferreiras), airport (Faro), bus tours (Ticket Shop). Central for touring the entire Algarve - adventures just a few minutes drive away. Shopping centres in Guia, Portomao, Faro if required. Restaurants both the local one at the bottom of the road and in the old town were superb. Excellent bakery around the corner - we visited it every day! Road construction still ongoing but we accomplished our morning jogging around it. Had the complex to ourselves for the month. Had a great stay for the month of February despite the rainy weather. Thanks for all your communications, Peter. Would not hesitate in recommending this property to others.

A very pleasant stay

  • 5 of 5

This property was in excellent condition. Very clean and tidy. The only problem is that you do need a car to get into town but with all the roadworks that are going on you take your life in your hands trying to walk there. The location itself is very pleasant . The owners were very helpful and provided all the information and help you needed. We did suggest that a small handout listing all the amenities in the apartment would be off a great help. Locally there is only one bar in walking distance (about 200 meters). The owner speaks English and wa very helpful the food was excellent. All in all a very pleasant stay. Iwould not hesitate to recommend it

Albufeira Farm Village Apartment

  • 4 of 5

My friends and I enjoyed our stay at Farm Village. The apartment is airy and clean, set in a nice complex with a lovely pool. The apartment is only about 1km walk away from Albufeira town and it's lovely beach. It is also a short walk away from a supermarket so a great location if you don't have a car.

Excellent time had by all !

  • 5 of 5

The villa was exactly as described, 4 balcony's, one with a BBQ, clean and tidy, with plenty of space for the 4 of us. Aircon was very welcome !

Quiet location, with the pool never being over crowded. Tennis courts available,but you will need your own rackets. Great customer service from Peter and Anabella. Old town has hundreds of restaurants, and a great atmosphere, Taxi back for approx 4 euro's, but can be walked in 20 minutes. Supermarket ( with restauarants above ) within 8 minutes walk, one within 3 minutes with traditional Portugese dishes. Slide and splash is great for over 5's, otherwise there are alternatives for the younger childrn closer by. We would definitely recomend it to friends and familiy and hope to return again soon.

Albufeira is now one of the most popular resorts in the Algarve with more hours of sunshine than any other location in Europe. Whilst maintaining its character as a Portuguese fishing village the resort has developed into a holiday haven for all ages. There are two local beaches with water sports and boat trips. Aqua parks, a zoo and attractive villages are all within a short distance of the town, and so much more of the Algarve is just waiting to be explored. In the evening you can go to the bars and restaurants in the bustling Old Town, which still retains its character along with a lively atmosphere appealing to all ages, or visit the 'Strip' with its clubs and famed nightlife.

About a mile to the east is the bustling new town with its many restaurants, bars and clubs easily accessible by car, bus or on foot.

To the west of the old town is the new Marina de Albufeira with its controversial multi coloured architecture.

Other Activities: Although the apartment Complex is very calm and quiet, the Albufeira Resort is very popular for night life, with restaurants, bars and music !

Golf: The Algarve is renowned for its many varied golf courses.

There are in excess of 25 spread across 100 miles of coastline.

Top European tour players come to the Algarve, both for the Portuguese Open and to enjoy the excellent conditions. There are plenty of golf shops, academies and driving ranges.

Albufiera is situated close to three main courses, Salgados, Balaia and Sheraton Pine Cliffs all within five minutes drive.

Should you be interested in doing some Serious golf during your holiday, then through 'PortGolf Holidays' you can arrange for you to play some of the top Golf Courses in the Algarve.

A real golf enthusiasts paradise.
