Guestbook comments from the manager

This was our second visit to Casa do Pateo and the villa has undergone some impressive refurbishment since we first stayed. It's a lovely villa in a perfect position for everyone in our party - beach lovers, those who prefer to stay by the very large pool and handy for the nightlife for the teenagers. Also everyone had their own bathroom - perfect! It was beautifully clean and the maid service was great. Just one tiny niggle - and I understand the owner is going to try and rectify this - there are some very tall weeds which obscure the sea view from the pool area and this area could do to be cleared of bits of rubbish. Otherwise, highly recommended!

Beautiful villa with lovely pool.

  • 5 of 5

The villa was excellent - well equipped, clean and spacious. Pool was fabulous. Welcome pack on arrival was very good. Customer service from all we engaged with was excellent and courteous. Would stay again.

It should be noted that it's quite a walk to Albufeira old town if not walking along the beach (only 20 minutes if walking along the beach). Short and cheap taxi ride back though.

Villa do Pateo is peaceful and private - not far from Albufeira old town. We had a couple of lovely meals at restaurant Cabana Fresca in Albufeira and also good pizza at Urban Pizza. Only 10 minute walk to The Strip if that's your thing. 20 minute walk to decent sized Intermarche supermarket.

Only criticism is that we could have done with some information about local supermarkets etc in the information folder.

Clean, spacious Villa

  • 4 of 5

We were a family of 12 people ranging in age from 71 to 18 months old. There was plenty of room for everyone. I didn't realise there would be so many steps in the Villa which my 71 year old dad struggled with, especially to get to the pool the steps were very steep. The pool area was great although it was very expensive to heat (£385 for 1 week) There was a lovely and very welcome food and drinks pack when we arrived which was very thoughfull but we could have done with some information on where the nearest supermarket was and the number of a local taxi company would have been beneficial. We could not enter the villa until 3 o clock in the afternoon and we had to vacate the Villa by 10am so i would bear that in mind when booking your flights. Overall it was a great family holiday in a really good standard of Villa.

Amazing vacation location!

  • 5 of 5

The villa was exactly as advertised.

Great location close to beach, nice pool, especially with the heating.

The villa was very clean and the cleaners came twice during our stay to do a thorough cleaning.

Good BBQ facilities outside, on the terrace and also by the bool.

Everything works: Wifi, kitchen equipment, air condiotioning.

Hands down best villa we have visited so far.

Property very clean and comfortable lovely welcome pack

  • 5 of 5

Kitchen had everything you needed when dining in. Two large fridges and separate freezer which was a must for the bottles of water. There was a lot of steps to the property which would not suit some people. Pool and garden maintained daily, could do with overgrowth the other side of railings cutting back as blocked the sea view sadly. Again leaving the property there was a couple of steep hills to get up unless you took a taxi to get to shops and local restaurants. We found two good ones, panacee opposite mini market and les tremias which specialised in fish, both worth a visit. Maids came twice during our stay and black bin bag was collected mid week and early on day of departure.

We had a lovely holiday and would return again 😊

Casa Patio - absolutely fabulous! Great location overlooking the ocean.

We were a party of 9 adults. Villa is incredibly well stocked, very clean.

Every bedroom had it's own bathroom. Outdoor space fantastic.

We can't wait to go back!

Great villa!!

  • 5 of 5

6 chaps in their 40's stayed here in April. 4 bedrooms are en-suite and the other bedroom has a bathroom next to it. This villa had everything we needed. Kitchen is fully equipped, also washing machine, iron etc. The selection of TV channels is not so good if you're English but if you're German or Portuguese you'll be fine. We didn't come to watch TV anyway! The maid came 3 times, Monday, Wednesday, Friday and did a great job. There's also a gym room downstairs. Then there's the pool. Loved it!! There's steps down to the pool. Great size and we paid for the heating as i'm sure we wouldn't have gone in as much without it. There's a BBQ by the pool and on the terrace outside the living room for those so inclined. Nice view of the sea too. Old Town and the Strip are both roughly 20/25 minutes walk. Taxi home from either was about 5 euros. Strip is more for the young 'uns but worth a look. There's a nice restaurant just a few minutes walk just up the road past the Monica Isabel on the right. Fry up hit the spot for brekkie! Also the 'Snack Bar' pub (that ironically doesn't serve food) was good for a pint and watching sport. Don't be put off by the standard white seating outside, much nicer inside!

Overall, this is a great villa. We had no problems and our deposit was returned in full a couple of weeks later. Can't recommend enough. Florence answered any queries via email and everything went smoothly. You pick the keys up from the Monica Isabel reception.

Thank you!!

This beautiful, spacious villa, enjoys a fantastic location directly above the beach with wonderful sea views. The beach is accessed from the villa, via a paved footpath that leads directly to the beach bar / restaurant, which is only a 2 to 3 minute walk. There are many amenities very close, including a mini market and a good selection of bars and restaurants. Albufeira town is just 2km, approx 30 minutes walk, but only about 15 minutes if you walk along the beach. The 'Strip' of music bars is only a 10 minute walk. The villa is located within a private cul de sac.

The swimming pool is very large at 10m x 6m with Roman steps and has a special system to keep the water clean that requires normally no, or very little chemicals to be added. Can be HEATED - this is available as an optional extra. The pool is surrounded by extensive terraces with BBQ , with a table tennis table.
