Lovely villa, great location

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely week long stay at Villa Costa, it is a great location for exploring the surrounding area. We visited Lagos, Sagres, Silves as well as heading out to Cape st Vincent. We also went to zoomarine for the day which I would recommend, especially for families with younger children. Thanks to Andrew we hired a car for the week which I would say is essential to make the most of your time there. The villa itself had everything we needed for our stay and my son loved the pool! Andrew really made our stay as hassle free as possible, from arranging a transfer from the airport and our hire car, as well as being there to meet us when we arrived of our flight at 11pm (with some refreshing cold drinks which were most welcome!). When you don’t know an area it is really helpful to have someone as knowledgable and friendly as Andrew to make the whole process that bit easier. I would certainly stay at Villa Costa again!

Excellent Holiday

  • 5 of 5

The villa photos, description and facilities were exactly as portrayed.

We are a family of 4, mum,dad, 20 year old daughter and 15 year old son and had ample room, the property is very spacious, more so than I expected.

Our favourite activity was lying on the sun loungers in the garden by the pool followed by a dip in the pool, which was kept very clean.

We did walk to Old Town and back in the evening about four times during our holiday - it is doable but probably not for young children. I wouldn't have liked to walk to the beach - we had a car for the duration of our holiday - and would suggest that is the best option. The nearest supermarket was very good and the fresh bread excellent, Lidl is not much further but difficult without a car.

We visited a few beaches, the one at Salgados was our favourite, about 20 minutes drive. We travelled to local places, Loule, Monchique, Silves, Lagos and Vilamoura. An evening visit to Vilamoura was great and we had an excellent meal around the marina. Annother good meal was had at Albufeira Marina and parking was easy in a very large(free) underground car park.

All in all we had a very good and relaxing holiday and would recommend, out thanks to Ana and Andrew.

Owner's Response: Dear Joanne and Family, Thank you very much for your superb review ! We are both delighted you have enjoyed the holiday in Albufeira and your stay at Villa Costa. Many of our guests like the location of the villa with 2 local restaurants and supermarkets within a short walking distance. As you have also done, you can also walk to old town or discover places further away with a car. I can see you have been to many different places around the Algarve and found some great beaches ( Salgados is also one of my favourites ) Enjoy the rest of the summer back home, hopefully with lots of sun and look forward to hear from you sometime in the near future. Kind regards to all the Family Andrew & Ana

Lovely relaxing villa for family of 5

  • 5 of 5

Andrew worked hard from initial booking enquiry until we left to ensure our stay went as smoothly as possible. Organising a taxi to/from Faro airport ( a boon for a family of 5) in advance.

Met at the villa to get the tour, sign relevant paperwork and access wifi. There's a comprehensive folder giving details of the local area, address and local taxi company number on the front.

Even a quick lift to local shops to get some basics in. There's a dishwasher, so bring a few tablets rather than buying 50 like we did!

If you've suitcase space bring tea/coffee/condiments/washing up liquid etc... You don't need much on holiday, but buying it there seems wasteful as you won't use it all.

AC in each room handy, but we didn't need it that often as weather warm but not oppressively so.

Couldn't fault villa, we had a wonderful & restful experience. Oh the BBQ at side a pure delight to use, want one for home now.

Quiet. Secluded, private. We enjoyed lying on sun loungers at night picking out stars with lovely clear skies.

Local taxi firm didn't have many people carriers, so we got 2 taxis a lot. But unavoidable really.

Returned home & felt truly rested and recharged. Thoroughly recommended & would definitely revisit.

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 of Villa Costa 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.
