Super place, excellent situation

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is extremely well furnished and presented, it was is absolutely lovely, with top quality everything, a delight. The location is perfect with the two balconies getting the sun in the morning afternoon and evening. It's very quiet, safe but also with a very quick walk into town. We brought two bikes and it was very safe to leave these on the balcony as this was on the 3rd floor, but also as the apartment is on a slope the access was at ground level too, so no carrying of the bikes.

A beautifully furnished wonderful apartment in a fantastic location.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is excellent in every way. It is furnished and finished to a very high specification. All in all we had an exceptional stay & appreciated the incredibly comfortable surroundings. The pool is superb, ultra clean & fantastic water quality. The location is perfect just slightly way from the noise of the old town, but only a 3 minute walk to all that the old town has to offer. The walk is on a steep gradient however it's over before you notice it. The balconies in the apartment offer guests private outdoor space to accompany the more than generous internal space. We will be recommending the apartment to friends & family, and would definitely return. There is certainly a wow factor about this apartment, even though the website photos are great they do not come close to The lived experience of staying in the apartment. Get booking as this apartment ticks every box & will undoubtedly be booked up for weeks at a time 😎?

Fantastic apartment in outstanding condition

  • 5 of 5

Just spent a delightful week in Albufeira in the best apartment we have ever rented. The apartment is ideally situated about 400m from the main square in Old Town Albufeira up a bit of a slope but quite manageable. We had a shared pool that was never too busy ( we were there in September however) and the apartment was level with the road but on the 4th floor so a few steps to get down to the pool, which due to its position was well sheltered.

All the facilities in the apartment were first class, I cannot recommend it highly enough.

Magnifique location

  • 5 of 5

Superbe sejour dans cette location magnifique ; la modernité de l'appartement, les terrasses bien exposées et surtout la grande propreté de celui-ci en font un endroit de rêve. L'accueil qui nous a été réservé , à la fois par Vincent le propriétaire mais aussi et surtout par toute l'équipe OC Villas est très chaleureux et convivial. Merci à Tania à Débora pour leur efficacité et réactivité. Mais surtout un grand merci à Gabriela , très professionnelle, qui a été d'une formidable gentillesse et qui nous a très bien renseigné sur les lieux et plages à visiter; elle nous a aussi communiqué quelques bonnes adresses de restaurants que nous n'avons pas tous eu l'occasion de fréquenter par manque de temps. La proximité de la vieille ville et du bord de mer sont un plus incontestable pour réserver cet endroit . Nous reviendrons très prochainement avec le plus grand plaisir. Encore merci à tous et nous vous souhaitons le meilleur pour l'avenir.

Très cordialement

André et Dominique CREUZA
