I have a long experience in the hotel business, which is a great help on creating in Villa Santos all the conditions to make our guests love the stay in the villa.To reach that goal Villa Santos was recently renovated, modernized and decorated


We particularly wanted a country villa, but not too far from the sea and the town center. Our villa is in a perfect location we can get virtually anywhere within 10 minute ( shopping mall, city center, hospital, beach, sports center and golf ), and we can walk to the beach


We are interested in swapping 1 week in Villa Santos (any available week, except in July and August) with 1 Week in an apartment or house in London (accommodation for 4 persons) from 15 to 22 December.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Just returned home from a couple of beautiful days in villa Santos. As soon as you enter the villa you feel welcome. The villa is great furnished. We have rented a couple of other villas in the Algarve but never found a villa that was so thought after and with contemporary furnishings. Simply loved it. All the appliances in the kitchen worked well and were of a good quality. There is nothing you miss when you are inside OR outside the house. The garden is well maintained and very private. The location of the villa is great. Just everything you want is in near proximity. The owners are doing a great job. They are warm, friendly and welcoming. You really do feel a guest. We would recommend this villa to everybody.

Beautiful, fully equipped villa

  • 5 of 5

We are a bit slow in submitting our review of this villa as we stayed there in March this year but we felt we really had to do this despite our delay. This is a fantastic villa and has everything you could really need. It's in a quiet but not isolated area with a restaurant virtually next door and the main part of Albuferia just minutes away by car. The owners were fantastic and could not do enough for us. There were 6 adults in our party and each one of us loved this place and can't wait to go back. Thank you again Paulo and Chritina for a lovely stay and an easy and accommodating booking process

lovely villa with a very welcoming owner

  • 5 of 5

we were welcomed by paulo the owner. he made us feel very at ease, and drove us to a supermarket many miles away and helped us with the shopping, what a great person. The villa was very clean and plenty of room for 8 of us. The kids enjoyed the pool and the games room had plenty of use, The restaurant almost next door was nice, went there 3 times. local beach is a must. i would happily return to villa santos. Was a great holiday thankyou.

Beautiful villa,peaceful & private.Perfect holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful villa, the end of April / beginning of May, it was clean, spacious, very comfortable and so beautifully decorated. Location is perfect, nestled in lovely quiet surroundings yet the Old Town in only 5 minutes in a taxi. Villa is completely private and peaceful. The pool area is very relaxing with lots of pool accessories supplied which was very handy. The pool itself is nice but quite dangerous, it dips very steeply into the deep end and is easy to slip, spent most of the time sitting in the baby pool with my twins (10 months old). There is a swing and a slide there also for older children. The games room is great at night when the babies were in bed, totally sound proof, so we could just bring the monitor in and be as loud as we liked. We really enjoyed the dart board but there were only two proper darts, the rest were plastic, so couldn't really play properly. We didn't make use of the outdoor bbq or stone oven, the week just went too quick, we will definitely use it next time, it's fully equiped. The villa has everything in it you could need, which really makes it feel like a home away from home, plenty of kitchen equipment, bed linen, towels, lots of games, books, dvds etc. The only thing is our bed was uncomfortable and lumpy, we stayed in the downstairs double bed, although one of the guests stayed in the upstairs bedroom and said the bed was very comfortable. The owners Paulo and Cristina were very friendly and helpful, we arrived in on a late flight and Paulo very kindly brought us shopping so we could pick up groceries for the following morning, and even bought us a pizza! They also leave a very handy folder with handy tips and recommendations with maps etc.we found this very useful. Overall I would highly recommend this wonderful villa and we are already planning our next trip and will be bringing more people with us next year!

Villa Santos has a peaceful location not far from the Marina.

Situated within walking distance to some of the most beautiful beaches in the Algarve and conveniently located at just a short walk to amenities: two super markets, two mini-markets and a good choice of restaurants and bars.

Sao Rafael beach, the nearest, at a short walk, was considered the 4th best beach in Europe, is fabulous, has bar and restaurant and sun beds to hire.

The Old Town, the famous bustling Albufeira city center, is at 3 km only, five minute by taxi (6 euros)

Attractions; water sports & jet ski on Gale Beach, big game & reef fishing from the Marina, 3 water parks at between 10 to 20 minute drive, Zoo Marine Park (sea life) 10 minute drive, outlet shopping 10 minute drive, Algarve shopping with shops, restaurants, cinemas with English movies and bowling, 10 minute drive.

Activities: Tennis, fishing, sailing, water skiing, swimming, diving, jet skiing, windsurfing, walking, bird watching, Jeep safaris, sea day trip, excursions to local markets, Cliff Richard vineyard tours and much more

Golf -: Excellent choice for Golfers :

The Algarve is a paradise for golfers, offering a choice of 35 beautifully tended golf courses, famous for its spectacular scenery, along with a fabulous coastline. The fantastic Algarvian weather give the possibility of playing golf in winter when northern countries courses are unplayable.

Villa Santos is ideally situated within short drive from many golf courses. The nearest is Salgados Golf course

at (5 km) 5 minute drive from the villa .

Golf courses of Vilamoura, Vale do Lobo and Quinta do Lago are at about 30 minute away to the East .The Courses of Carvoeiro, Penina and Alvor at 30 minute drive to West . The new course of Amendoeira in Silves is at only 15 minute drive.

After a fantastic day playing Golf, the evening in Albufeira is to be lived and remembered. The Old Town is expecting for you with excellent restaurants and bars, and its fantastic night life. The new town , known as The Strip , is also a must, in the Albufeira night and its where discos are situated.

The bars in summer close at 4am, and the discos at 6am, a good time to prepare yourself for another day of golf.
