Villa Feliz: Our comfortable villa situated in the edge of the small village of Portella de Messines. It is a very pretty spot offering peace and privacy close to the pleasant inland town of Sao Bartolomeu de Messines (commonly referred to as Messines), which lies about 15km north of Albufeira in the centre of the Algarve and is only 30 minutes by car from Faro Airport. We have welcoming local country bars and restaurants, which offer better value than the coastal resorts, and you will also savour the character and atmosphere of Portugal. The local people are friendly, especially if you make an effort with your phrase book. Main shopping can be done in Messines or, for immediate needs, there is a small general shop only a few minutes walk from Villa Feliz. If you want the sea or night life, it's only a 20 minute drive away.
For golfers, there are many superb courses from which to choose in an area 25 to 40 minutes drive from Villa.
We are a family business with managing residency in both Portugal and the UK, providing friendly help and assistance to Villa Feliz visitors at all times.
We are fully licenced and registered with Registo National de Turismo and Turismo de Portugal (Alojamento Local Registo No 4596/AL
Cedric Jemmett and Peter Barber purchased this apartment in 1991
It is the ideal alternative holiday venue to noisy packed coastal resorts and packages, but also providing easy fast access to lovely Algarve countyside, towns and beaches. Villa Feliz is a lovely summer resort, and also offers unique holiday qualities in spring and autumn months. Always lots of lovely bright warm sun and cool breezes, but some will enjoy Almond blossom time in January/February, wonderful displays of spring wild flowers, or lovely extra warm sea swimming in the autumn months. In the winter months some rain can be expected but the result is a much greener terrain through out the year than in neibouring Spain
Villa Feliz provides a pure 'chill out' environment. Easy also to enjoy the Albufeira beaches, the interesting Portuguses towns, and countyside, but with the pleasure of returning to the peace and tranquility of Villa Feliz.
For early bookings 20% deposit will be sufficient at the reservation date.
Pessoal Villa Felliz é um espanto para o descanso, fica na serra, no meio do nada onde de manhã só se houve os passarinhos, é muito calmo e para se passarem umas férias de descanso aconselho vivamente.
My wife and I have just returned from a wonderful 6 week stay at Villa Feliz. Nothing was too much trouble for Peter and Fenella who took care of our every need. They are two of the nicest people you could ever hope to meet.
The villa is situated in a lovely little village where there is a small bar and shop where you can get most things. The fresh bread in the morning is lovely. For more choice there are supermarkets in Messines and Alte. A visit to the pretty village of Alte is a must. We were there for the Mardi Gras carnival. Be sure to have coffee and custard tart in the coffee bar.
There are lots of inexpensive Portuguese restaurants within 15 minutes drive and should you require more choice there are hundreds more in Albufeira.
Thank you Peter and Fenella for making our stay so enjoyable. I will certainly recommend Villa Feliz to all our friends.
Excellent location, well presented apartments with lovely gardens and pool area. Local supermarket very good and only 15 mins to the beaches and shops of Albufeira.
We also went to some local restaurants which were off the tourist beat and found the food and wine to be good and well priced.
Peaceful and tranquil setting, yet accessable, we were very pleased with our holiday choice.
excellent location,nice clean appartment,some noise from the motorway,especially at night,towels,pots and pans are well past their best,and need replacing,plenty of tv channels,but a 12" Tv in the lounge is a disapointment,during summer months a fan is a must(,none provided)
nous avons passé une semaine de vacances extraordinaire à la villa Feliz, au milieu d'un jardin d'orangers, de citronniers,de fleurs multicolores. Nous avons profité d'une piscine spacieuse qui était la bienvenue après nos nombreuses visites dans la région.Nous avions pour 4 un appartement très spacieux comme le décrit le site avec une grande terrasse ombragée. Le lieu est très calme et nous avons appréciés d'être en retrait du tumulte de la côte océane.
De plus tout est bien entretenu car Peter et Fenella sont présents tous les jours à la villa tout en étant très discret. Nous avons beaucoup appréciés les petits cadeaux de Peter quand nous sommes arrivés qui nous ont permis de manger le premier soir et de se rafraîchir.
Nous recommandons vivement cette location et nous espérons y séjourner de nouveau.
Quero deixar os meus agradecimentos, pela excelente estadia que tivemos em Villa Feliz.
Foi tudo muito bom e recomendamos os vossos apartamentos.
Ficamos agradavelmente surpreendidos ao chegar ao apartamento e ter alguns produtos alimentares oferecidos, foi muito simpático da vossa parte.
O local era muito sossegado e silencioso muito bom para descansar tal como pretendíamos, e com excelentes condições para as crianças se divertirem na piscina. Perto da propriedade existe um café e mercado para compras diárias e a vila a poucos minutos de carro permitem acesso a varias lojas.
Ao Peter e Fenella, os responsáveis pela gestão da propriedade os nossos sinceros agradecimentos pela simpatia e disponibilidade.
Esperemos poder um dia voltar.
A lovely area of peace and privacy but only 30 minutes drive from Faro Airport, 5 minutes by car from the centre of typical Portuguese market town (Messines) and 15 minutes by car from sandy beaches, golf courses and amenities at Albufeira. A general shop/bar is only 3 minutes walk and several good reasonably priced restaurants are only 4/5 minutes by car.
