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!

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!!

Spacious beautiful villa in a lovely setting

  • 5 of 5

My partner, children, their partners and grandchildren (11 of us) had the villa the second week of May. The villa is very well equipped and extremely spacious - there were numerouse z beds and cots etc that were surplus to requirements. The villa was cleaned regularly by a very nice lady. The heated pool was great for the little girls (and the big uns). Garden was tended when we were there. Reasonable walking distance from the centre of old albufuria but there were some good resteraunts closer by. The facilities were so good at the villa that we dined in loads taking advantage of the bbq facilities. Although instructions said we had to deal with our own rubbish, a man in a van arrived daily to empty the bins. The weather was very kind to us and I would definitely go back to the Algarve and Villa Pateo. A superb holiday was had by all ages. Thank you

An amazing villa ....... made our holiday perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at the villa in April for my 40th birthday and we were very impressed by the villa - it was spacious, immaculate, and incredibly well kitted out. Plenty of towels, toilet roll, kitchen utensils etc

Every one of the bedrooms was well decorated, the bathrooms a good spec and the living area spacious.

The location was great although a little hard to find but the staff at the Monica Isabel Beach Club were more than helpful. It was easy walking distance from The Strip although a little uphill. It was also walking distance to the Old Town but this was a little further and taxis were so cheap we decided this was an easier option.

We had the pool heated which was amazing and well worth the money, especially at this time of year. There were also plenty of sunloungers which was very important for a group of 8 ladies and has been an issue at previous villas.

The only thing that was a little disappointing compared to the description was the view of the sea which was hindered by the growth of plants etc since the photos were taken.

But overall I would highly recommend this property for large groups visiting the area. We had an amazing week and would definitely return.

Perfect villa

  • 5 of 5

Upon arrival at the villa, the view over the pool to the sea beyond was wonderful. Plenty of space in the villa for 10+ people and more importantly it was very clean. The maid visited twice during our stay refreshing the towels and generally cleaning. Florence was swift to respond to my query and helped to book taxi transfers to and from the airport which otherwise may have proved costly. I would definitely return to this villa in the future!!

Beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

From start to finish an excellent holiday. The villa was far more than the photos portrayed. Florence was most helpful with all booking arrangements. I would highly recommend to anyone who is looking for a beautiful,well maintained and spotlessly clean villa.

We booked the villa for a week in June to celebrate my husband and my 60th birthday, we shall always cherish this beautiful villa experience.

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.
