A great holiday villa close to the beach and within walking distance of shop and restaurants

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this villa for a week in May (a family group of 7 adults crossing 3 generations). Villa is in good condition and has great sea views, the restaurant across the road and by the beach were both good and well worth a visit - the restaurant at the beach will also sell fish and kebabs to take away and bbq yourself. The local beach is fantastic, and worth a visit.

You can get into Albufeira by local taxi for around 8 Euro and worth a visit - it’s walkable in about 40 minutes.

We had great weather although it can be a little windy at times

I would highly recommend this villa and we would definitely visit again; the only down side of our trip was the airport transfer arranged through the villa . Almost 2 hours late in picking us up from airport and then insisted in dropping us off at a local bar( with pool and restaurant) while we waited for access time - only to tell us he would then charge to take us back to the villa.

Lovely location. Great neighbors, very close beach access.

  • 3 of 5

The weather was cool for our Jan 15 to Feb 15 visit. Sunny, but cool. We loved the location and would likely come back to the area but at a different time of year. The house was basically good with a nice pool and hot tub that you have to pay extra to heat. The views are incredible! There is a great little restaurant a few steps away. There were some negatives: 1) Before the rest of the family arrived my wife and I had to wash the lower four feet of walls everywhere as there were so many black marks and soil on it. It was badly in need of paint. We weren’t being picky-they were really bad. 2) All of the beds were really hard. It was like laying on the floor. It made sleeping difficult for all of us. They really do need to upgrade them. 3) We had a lot of ants inside. The property representative tried to help but they kept coming back. We finally bought some ant traps and that helped a lot.

Overall we loved Portugal. The location, views, restaurants, and people made it a place we will come back to. Olivia & Joao were awesome to deal with and were very responsive to most of our questions. Unfortunately, due to the negatives that the owner will need to address that are listed above we will not return to this villa unless the negatives were properly addressed.

We would score a 10 for the representatives.

We score a 6 or 7 for the condition of the house.

Best Villa in the Algarve

  • 5 of 5

Upon our arrival at this beautiful Villa the BuyAlgarve rep was waiting for us.

He went through everything we needed to know about the villa's fantastic facilities and what the surrounding area had to offer.

The Villa is very private and is not overlooked there are several places to relax not just around the pool, There are 2 beautiful sun roofs with seating and beautiful views of the sea.

The Villa has a Jacuzzi, which was fantastic to relax in.

Exactly opposite the villa there is a really good restaurant which serves all different kinds of fine food, this also has beautiful views of the sea.

There are several more restaurant within walking distance.

The beach which is just 5 minutes walk and is an award winning Blue Flag beach.

If you fancy an explore of Albufeira town it is only around 8 euros in a Taxi.

I hope to get back to this Villa as soon as I can.

Very modern villa in perfect location, but noisy at night

  • 3 of 5

The villa was very modern but noisy at night due to nearby hotel complex playing live music in a marquee on several nights - normally finishing around midnight but on one occasion, until 2 in the morning.

Was slightly surprised that, although the towels were changed 3 times during our 2 week stay, the villa was not cleaned and no cleaning products were available for our use.

Owner's Response: Dear Kenneth, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Regarding the issue raised about the cleaning, we are very surprised with the observation as we always had positive feed-backs about the cleaning and the team that does it. About this subject you have all the information needed on the booking form sent to you. For stays of more than a week there is always a light cleaning (at the end of each week when changing the towels and linen). However the tasks of the cleaning lady do not include cleaning the kitchen, kitchen utensils and equipment as it is written on the booking form. Concerning the cleaning products, those need, in fact, to be bought by the guests. This is a self-catered property so those products should be acquired by the guests accordingly with their preference. About the noise of the music from the nearby hotel, we had never received a comment about it. It is the first time this subject is mentioned. We are very surprised about this observation. We believe it was a one time event. We at BuyAlgarveProperties’ Group (AlgarveVacation,Ltd & Properties4You, Lda) go the extra mile to make each and every holiday a special memorable experience. We truly hope to welcome you again in this, or in any of the other properties we have in our vast Portfolio.
