Amazing Holiday!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Have just returned from a weeks holiday at this lovely villa.

We are 4 ladies in our 40's and we had an amazing time here.

The villa is absolutely spotless, and provides everything you need for a great holiday. The pool area is great with plenty of loungers and has sunshine from early morning until early evening.

There are 3 supermarkets within walking distance and the old town is about a 10-15 min stroll (or €4-€5 in a taxi).

Andrew was fabulous from first contact and could not do enough for us.

Would highly recommend this villa and will definitely be booking again.

Thanks for a wonderful time xx

Lovely large clean villa with pool.

  • 5 of 5

The whole experience went smoothly from booking to coming home. Andrew couldn't have been more helpful, he organised taxis to and from the airport. Explained local amenities and where everything was. It was a lovely walk into old town but we chose to get taxi home (about €3.50) as it was quite a hilly walk back. If we were to stay near the old town again we would definitely choose to stay at Villa Carreira. Overall a memorable holiday. Thank you Andrew.

  • 4 of 5

Spent 11 great nights at this villa with family and it was a absolutely fabulous place to be based very peacefull but not to far to travel to the old town or strip to eat and drink in many of there fantastic bars and resturants .

The villa was well above our expectations in size and was imaculately maintained and a great maid service was provided throughout our stay and i wouldnt hesitate to recommend this villa to family or friends .

Lovely spacious villa

  • 5 of 5

7 of us stayed for 2 weeks in this delightful villa and enjoyed a relaxing stay. Andrew is the perfect host and everything with the booking, the taxi transfer and the villa itself all ran smoothly. During the two weeks the weather didn't drop below 32 degrees and whilst this was lovely for the pool it felt that a walk to the beach was just too far at about 30 mins away. The restaurant A Cochiera (5 mins walk) is good value and the food is excellent. On hindsight we should've hired a car to get out and about a bit more - but there is always next time. I wouldn't hesitate to book through Andrew again.

Owner's Response: Hello Joanne, Thank you very much for your superb review ! It’s great to know you have enjoyed Albufeira and your stay at Villa Carreira. Thank you for looking after the villa and leaving all so tidy on departure. You are right, this summer has been much too hot for walking during the day. Many of our guests without cars use the pick up point at the Camping to go to various water parks, Zoomarine or excursions. There is also the local Giro bus with the bus stop by Cocheira Restaurant which goes to various different part of Albufeira. I would be delighted to welcome you all again of you decide to return the Algarve. Best wishes to all the Family Andrew

Fantastic holiday

  • 5 of 5

Firstly Andrew was unbelieveably kind and helpful from my very first email to meeting us when we arrived.

This was our first family holiday with our 4 month old baby girl Maggie , I really cannot find the words to say how the villa , its location and Andrew were so perfect. 20 minutes walking to the centre of Old Town through a lovely park we walked down and back every night as it was so handy with the baby napping as we strolled. perfect supermarket less than 10 mins walk away and a really fab restaurant 5 mins walk away. We walked to lidl and aldi also which was 30 mins walk.

The villa was spotless and had everything we needed, it is very spacious and cool. We are really looking forward to booking with Andrew again next year.
