Area description : Villa Alegria is situated in the heart of the so called Golden Triangle of the Algarve.
We advice you to check its location on Google Earth: click on the coordinates 37 ° 02'53 .01 'N, 08 ° 02'21 .53' west longitude. On our own website algarve-villas.nl, next Villa Alegria, you will find three more villas: one with (just like Villa Alegria) 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and 2 villas with 4 bedrooms and bathrooms.
All our 4 villas have been built in the heart of the Golden Triangle and are in a straight line only 375 meters maximum from eachother!
Sightseeing around Almancil: The church of Sao Lourenço de Matos is situated on a hill. It owes its name to Laurentius (3rd century), who's life was ended on a funeral pile because he gave the money meant for the construction of the church to the poor. In the 17th century the chapel was covered with tiles (azulejos). Together with the marbel alter and the wood carving you should visit this church.
On 18 km. from the urbanisations you will find the centre of the capital city of the Algarve: Faro, with its beautiful hostirical centre next to the small vessel harbour, has several shopping centres. There are lots of cafes and restaurants as well.
The shops are modern and they can be compared with the shops you are used to in UK and Ireland. Most of them are opened from 09.00 until 13.00 hour and after the 'siesta' from 15.00 until 19.00 hour (in the summer until 20.00 hour). Between the city centre and Faro airport Forum Algarve mall is opened between 09.00 and 22.00.
Fun for Kids: In a country where the weather most of the year is warm and sunny, your children can play with water. Fortunately all the villas have a private swimming pool!
Older children can go to the communal pool of Riapark Garden hotel and the pool next to the tennis court on urbanization Vale do Garrão. Just a stroll of 200 meters!
A water park with several dolphin, seal and sea-lion shows. One can also watch turtles, sharks, crocodiles, tropical fish and exotic and aquatic birds in the Oceans area that presents the life cycle of water and fauna from river source to ocean depth.
In the Algarve there are three water parks:
The Big One, on the N125 at SILVES
Slide & Splash, on the N125 at LAGOA
Aqua show, on N396 between LOULÉ and QUARTEIRA.
We are Sietske Abma & Oebele Veenstra from the Netherlands and since February 2012 moved from Heemskerk (near Amsterdam) to the province of Friesland in the village of De Wilgen. Back to the roots.
Many years ago we made a 3-weeks-Portugal-tour with a final 'week of sun in the Algarve'. The environment of the village of Almancil are very pleased! Two years later went back and decided to buy a house to get yourself to stay and to rent.
At least twice in every year we go to our villa with pleasure. We are delighted with the (year-round) mild climate, friendly atmosphere, delicious food and luxurious surroundings.
Mr. Oebele Veenstra and Mrs Sietske Abma purchased this villa in 1999
Villa Alegria is a very nice villa on a perfect spot, not far from the sea. In The Netherlands the climate is quite colder and more rainy than in the Algarve. Why not buying a villa there for using ourselves and - if we are not there - for renting purposes.
The Algarve is famous for its lovely architecture; there are a lot of Moorish influences, Because the villa was only 800 meters from the sandy beach, we decided to buy this villa.
Wir (zwei Erwachsene und drei Kinder) haben uns in dem schönen Ferienhaus sehr wohlgefühlt. Das Haus war sauber und ist wirklich prima ausgestattet. Besonders hervorheben möchten wir die sehr freundliche Betreuung vor Ort durch Alina! Der Kontakt zum Eigentümer war ebenfalls klasse und die Abwicklung hat reibungslos funktioniert. Wir kommen sehr gerne wieder.
Nice villa, modern bathrooms, fantastic equiped kitchen, easy to find. Nice beach with restaurants near by. For us absolute marvelous, will be back next year.

Very nice villa on an excellent location, in between the sea and the golf resorts of Vale de Lobo and Quinto do Lago. The villa has everything you might need on a holiday, is cleaned 3 times a week, has a nice a swimming pool and a number of terraces. Information upfront by the friendly owners as well as in the villa was accurate, and they also helped us with a rental car. Everything worked out just fine.
We stayed there in August 2011 and we have really enjoyed our stay - everything was as promised and the house and the area were great.
The owner was easy to deal with and very responsive, teh house is in a really quiet neighboorhood, yet close to the beach and golf courses - we had great fun.

Villa Alegria is a delightful property in a quiet residential upmarket area. It is close to the airport and therefore only 20mins or so drive away. It is very well equipped, clean and comfortable throughout and the bathrooms are especially nice. There is lots of room for three couples and you would find it quite private as you each have a bathroom. The pool area is large enough to accommodate a large group and there are several different terraces for dining options. The owners are very friendly and easy to deal with and respond to emails quickly. Overall I would recommend this villa and would use it again if I wanted to be in that area. The beach is a ten minute stroll and is very nice. It also has several very nice restaurants to return to in the evening. I would recommend you hire a car if only to get you to and from the airport and the supermarket.
