Villa in Sao Rafael, Albufeira, Central Algarve, Portugal - Quiet Area Within 400 M Of Beach And Walking Distance To Several Restaurants
Proud owner of a magnificent property in the sun which we hope to enjoy for many years.
Why Victoria chose Albufeira
Sea views and easy walking to the beaches and restaurants were some of the main reasons that helped us decide on this property. It is also very convenient for golf and airport access

We had a great time at the villa . It is spacious and very well equipped . Loved the pool and garden and enjoyed barbecuing . The upstairs terrace is perfect for an evening drink watching the sun set . The property suited everyone in our mixed age party . Victoria and Tony have been great at communicating with us .
Everything was perfect. Great neighborhood, perfect location, beach and stores nearby. Great stay.
Thank you very much for your very nice comments and we are delighted that you enjoyed your vacation in Sobre o Mar. We we look forward to having you stay again.
Outstanding Villa in great location!
Just had 7 lovely days in the Villa and we had a magnificent time. Location is great with access to Arrifes Beach and Sao Rafael so easy, both with excellent beach restaurants! Villa is great with fantastic facilities. Had a great time there, thank you
Thank you so much for your very kind review. Having the two beautiful beaches within walking distance is so nice for a nice relaxing swim or lunch / dinner and is indeed a great bonus.
We are delighted that the villa met all your expectations.
Many thanks for staying with us.
Beautiful villa and lovely peaceful location
We stayed at the villa for the last week of the school holidays. We were a party of 5 and a 10 month old baby. From the outset the owner Victoria was very helpful and replied quickly to all our varied questions. We arranged the taxi via the villa manager Tracy. Nuno was there to pick us up and was really nice and his English was good. We used the company through our stay. Tracy was also really helpful with internet issues which she sorted out and when we locked ourselves out one evening!
The villa is very spacious, has great sea views and provides a lovely relaxing holiday. The pool is certainly not small and provided enough 'entertainment' for us all with baby and our 10 year old grand daugther. The small beach is a few minutes walk and has a nice restaurant. For a night out it is a 5 minute taxi ride to Alberfera or an hour stroll ( with no push chair!). A great experience because of the vila's facilities, location and helfulness of all involved. If we return to that part of Porfugal we would certainly stay at the villa again.
Thank you so much for the great review. We are delighted that you had such a great holiday and that you found the villa to be large enough to accommodate all of your party
We look forward having you back if you return to the Algarve
This villa has everything! It's spacious, has a big secluded garden with a nice pool. The view over the ocean is great and it is quiet sorroundings. It's only 400m to the beach!
Thank you very much for this lovely review. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay and that you liked the great sea views and proximity to the beaches.
We would be delighted to have you back again in the future and please tell your friends !!.
Thank you again for staying in Sobre o Mar.
An extreme!y well maintained & equipped villa.
Over the years we have rented many holiday properties & have had some disappointments but this certainly did not apply to Sobre O Mar. The villa exceeded our expectations in every respect. The garden was lovely & the bougainvillea were in full bloom as per the photo. The house has 4 good bedrooms & the kitchen was very well equipped. We would certainly rent this property again.
Thank you very much for the fantastic review which is much appreciated. We want and hope that all our guests feel the same and work hard to maintain a high standard. We are so pleased that the villa and gardens exceeded your expectations.
You will be most welcome back.
Special interest holidays:
There is great walking in the area with cliff or beach walks a must.
Arrifes beach is just a 5 minute walk (400mtrs) away and Sao Rafael beach which is ranked as one of the top beaches in the world is a few minutes further on. The coastal walks are magnificent but good footwear is recommended for this. Both of these beaches have restaurants and bar areas. Several other beaches along the coast are just a few minutes drive away and offer small coves and large beaches. Gale beach which goes all the way to Armacao de Pera is approx. 10km long.
Faro airport is the closest airport and is approximately 35 minute drive away.
Car hire is not essential as there is walking to beaches and restaurants but a car is useful for visiting all the local attractions.
Sao Rafael is a quiet urbanisation which links with the general Gale area and has many restaurants and supermarkets. Portugal’s only two Michelin star restaurant Vila Joya is just a 5 minute drive away.
Zoomarine water park is approx 20 minutes away.
Albufeira is the closest large town and it is a 5 minute drive to the marina with the old town and strip are a little further on.
