About the property

Between Praia da Luz & Burgau - luxury villa is in a typical Portuguese village

3 Bedrooms 1 with en-suite, family bathroom with corner bath, sleeps 6. Shared Pool only with the owner and their family whilst on holiday.

This stunning villa was built as our family home in 2006. We have recently started to offer the ground floor for holiday rentals. It is light, airy and very spacious with all the modern luxuries and conveniences for everyday life. For the sun worshiper there's a beautiful patio area with sun loungers also an under covered terrace area where you can enjoy the shade on hot sunny days with table and 6 chairs for Alfresco dinning.The villa is situated in Almadena a little sleepy agricultural village, lying inland between the popular resorts of Praia da Luz and Burgau both 4 kms, and only 10 mins to enchanting town of Lagos. There is a pretty village square, small market hall, several small mini-markets, some Portuguese bars and 3 good restaurants, all within easy walking distance. Beyond the village boundaries - rolling, peaceful countryside.

Lagos the former capital and, without doubt, the most attractive small town in the Algarve is 6km.

Part of a lovely villa in an ideal location close to towns and beaches

  • 4 of 5

Very good size apartment for family and friends in an ideal location close to the towns of Lagos and Luz and easy driving to both South and West coasts.

Beautiful private pool shared only with the owners when they are there. Sun loungers provided together with an outdoor eating area. The owner and daughter were there during our stay and we didn't have any disturbance at all.

Almadena has a convenience store for your essentials and there are a couple of cafe/restaurants within a 5 minute walk which is useful if you don't want to drive.

My wife and I had a very enjoyable stay and do hope to return next time we holiday in the Algarve.

The only comment was my wife found the bed rather firm for her liking but I slept really well. You can't please everyone.

Wonderful summer get away

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at the Villas with some friends for 6 nights . It's the perfect spot for sharing accommodations with friends which made for an inexpensive trip . As that was our goal as we had already used up our travel budget for the year and just wanted one more trip lol ... Fantastic house and facilities, would highly recommend. Landlady made us feel very welcome at all times. 10/10

Great overall holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 10 nights. Family of 4 and 2 grandparents.

The villa was beautiful, equipped with everything needed for a comfortable and luxurious family holiday.

The positioning of the villa was perfect for us, far enough out to be peaceful and quiet, but close enough to all the amenities for a quick car journey (public transport readily available too).

Would absolutely recommend to any family looking for a relaxing holiday!

Thanks Joanne!

Kris Richardson and family (and the in-laws!!)

Teenage daughter & friends staying upstairs

  • 2 of 5

We booked this villa as a family holiday traveling with a child under 2. At no point were we made aware that there was a apartment upstairs. We arrived to find 4 teenagers in the pool and then found out that the owners 18 year old daughter and her friend were staying upstairs. All week they were coming in and out at all hours, bringing different men on to the property in the middle of the night and been very noisy. They walked past our bedroom ground floor windows at around 5am each morning. One night was partially bad as some kind of fight/argument broke out. so just be aware when booking this "peaceful Villa" it may not be as peaceful as it seems.

Owner's Response: All guests are made aware upon booking that this could be a shared pool/villa depending on the circumstances of mine and my families holidays, I always make this as clear as possible and therefore I can't apologise enough for your misunderstanding and apologise that you feel this way. The villa is priced accordingly due to the shared pool and I wish this had been brought to my attention at the start of the holiday instead of upon your return to the uk, and like said before I would have done my upmost to resolve this issue.
