This villa is absolutely gorgeous. Andrew is adorable and so helpful and friendly. I went for two weeks to this villa with my husband 21 year old son and two 14 year old girls. Everyone loved it. We didn't want to come home and could quite easily have saved. Pool was lovely to cool down and the temperature was just right. It was actually warm on the evening when my on and daughters wanted a late night dip. Pool light lights up later on at night. It's lovely. Barbecue is great. Maids are exceptional and come 3 times a week and pool guy cleans the water once a week. There's everything you need in the villa. Excessive amount of wardrobe and cupboard space. Dishwasher and washing machine iron and ironing board. I actually did everyone's washing before I came home. The washer is excellent. Quite a few lines for drying. Could do with a few more pegs.lol dried in no time. Weather was hot through the day and varied at night. There were some nights if you went close to the beach in the old town you could have done with a little jacket. I will definitely be going back. Villa ideally situated. We walked to old town most nights which is on 2km. Was nice excercise. We got a taxi back though which was only 4-5 euros. Absolutely loved it no complaints whatsoever ever!!!! Thankyou soooooo much Andrew and also your team of cleaners. Loved it☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️🍰😀😃😀😀🌞🌞🌞
This was our 3rd visit to Villa Bernardo and once again it was wonderful :) Andrew is very helpful with information about the town and where to visit - the villa has everything you could possibly need - there is two fantastic restaurants within walking distance, although we tended to eat at the first one Farm Village Restaurant - wonderful food and staff :) - we will definitely be going back to villa Bernardo next year :)
We have now stayed in this property three times. The description regarding layout/facilities are very accurate also. It is a beautiful villa and very clean and well maintained throughout. Andrew Ziobrowski greets us on arrival and is so helpful and is only a phone call away should you need him. I would definitely recommend to friends and relatives. The area is fantastic and the restaurants at the bottom of the hill are superb [Cocheira and Farm Village.]
Fantastic villa .Andrew the owner was very helpful ,and polite .The grandchildren loved the pool. Lovely restaurant down the road .Would go later in the year ,so the pool is warmer .We all had a great holiday .Back to the rain .
We stayed for 9 nights in April with our 3 children. Prior to the holiday Andrew was very helpful in answering all of our questions and arranging airport pick & drop off for us. When we arrived he was waiting, despite the late hour, (with a welcome drink) and provided all of the information we needed for the stay. His advice on places to visit, beaches, restaurants, supermarkets and trips out was just what we needed. He was available (via cell phone) throughout the stay and was prompt & responsive the one time we needed some help. The Villa was just as expected. Clean, with all facilities including internet (important for the kids), washing machine, microwave, TV, dishwasher etc. This gave the flexibility to carry less luggage (as we were on a Ryanair flight) and simply wash a few items during the stay. The Villa was a little chilly some evenings, probably due to the time of year, and there seemed to be quite a few dogs barking in the neighbourhood, especially in the cooler parts of the day, but this was tuned out quite easily. Pool was quite cool, but we still went in it every day. I am sure it will get hotter as the summer comes on. There is a supermarket about 10 minutes walk away, with pretty much everything you need. There is also Aldi and Lidl about 20 minutes walk away (a EUR 5 taxi ride) if you want to do a big shop at the start of the holiday. The walk to the old town is quite straightforward and takes around 20 minutes. A taxi would cost about 4-5 EUR. The old town is great, with a good mix of bars, restaurants and local shops, all close to the beach. English is spoken everywhere and most bars show the key sport events such as football, rugby etc, plus live music most nights. Food and drink is relatively cheap (large beer EUR 1.50 to 3.50 depending on the bar, most main meals in the EUR 7.00 - 15.00 range). The Marina is a little less developed, but all the boat trips go from here. The fish restaurant (Clube de Pesca Nautica) close to the Marina was excellent and is highly recommended; very reasonably priced too (EUR 90 for 5 people, including wine, beer etc). The "Strip" is a 7-8 EUR taxi ride and is much more geared towards a lively nightlife for the younger generation. There are many places to visit, but ones we would recommend include Zoo Marine, the Adventure Park and one of the many boat trips available. Overall, a great holiday; We would certainly go back...!!
Algarve is a region renowned for its mild and sunny climate, its miles of glorious sandy beaches with their stunning rock formations and its excellent sport facilities. It boasts an average of 3000 hours of sunshine per year. Its mild all year round with virtually no rain in the summer months. February sees the start of the spring and its warm in October.The old town of Albufeira which perches on the cliff top overlooking the the beach, retains a distinctive Moorish character and you can still see the fisherman bringing in their catch on Praia dos Pescadores (Fisherman's beach) There are 2 excellent local restaurants, both with bars open until late within about 8 minutes walk and another one during the summer months at the near by Clube Albufeira with famous barbecues on Wednesdays nights where you can eat as much as you like! Algarve Shopping with food store, many restaurants, bowling and cinemas is only few minutes by car as is Zoomarine, water parks, nightlife & golf.
Other Activities: superb nightlife, water sports
Golf: There are currently 25 courses in the space of 100 miles of coastline, with more under construction. Most of the Algarve golf courses are within half an hour drive from our villa, some only 10-15 minutes. Over the last few years the Portuguese Open has been hosted variously at Penina, Villa Sol and Sao Lourenzo, all of which may be included in the list of top European championship courses. Warm playing conditions and immaculately manicured fairways and greens are the norm in the Algarve. Whatever you level of skills dedication there is a course for you in the Algarve. There are many attractions for children like the water parks, Zoomarine with animal shows where you can even swim with the dolphins, crazy golf and many more.
