About Claudio Rebelo

I live in Albufeira which I visited in 1981, on holiday from Zimbabwe, and decided to make it our home.

Since then I have worked in the tourist industry, as a financial executive, and have decided to move into a smaller property as, both Casa Rebelo and Villa Mimi, became too big for my wife and I, after the kids left home.

If you decide to rent one of our properties, my wife and I will do our utmost to make your stay a memorable and unforgettable holiday.

Claudio Rebelo purchased this villa in 2003

Why Claudio Rebelo chose Montechoro

I love this area because I lived here for twenty years, in Casa Rebelo which is on the same street, and where I brought up my two boys. Since they left home, my wife and I moved to an apartment as the villa was too big for just the two of us.

I bought the land where Villa Mimi stands in 2003. The villa was built in 2006 and the first guests came in April 2007.

The reason for buying the land was because I liked the location which is away from the madding crowd but within walking distance from all the Montechoro, Strip and Praia da Oura amenities.

What makes this villa unique

Staying at Villa Mimi does give an opportunity of having a very relaxing and worry free holidays as:

The villa is extremely comfortable and well equipped,

You are secure as the house is in a residential area where most of the properties are lived in by their owners.

The villa has a games room for your entertainment and relaxation.

You do not need to hire a car as you can walk to all amenities in the area.

You do not worry about your teenage kids at night when they go pub crawling. You know that even if they have one drink too many, they will be able to walk back to the villa safely.

Most important, you will be dealing with the owner of the house, not an agency or tour operator, who just looks at you and your family as a number that will make them attain their targets.

Guestbook comments from the owner

5/5

Fantastic villa and great location

Patricia Cheshire, England

Review Submitted: April 10, 2011 Date of Stay: April 2011

My family of nine went here in April, the villa was larger than we expected and very comfortable. The heated pool was great, as we had two young children with us, who were in the water every day.



The facilities in the villa were excellent and very clean, and the sheltered games room was great.



The villa was a ten minute walk to the main strip, where there were plenty of restaurants and shops.



The old town was a short taxi or train ride away and worth visiting.



I have recommended this villa to my family and friends and will be more than happy to return again for another holiday.



The owner was very helpful and friendly.

The villa was beautiful, the rooms were nicely furnished and there were plenty of cups, dishes etc.,

  • 5 of 5

We booked the villa for our 60th Wedding Anniversary, and we invited all our close family to help us celebrate. The age range was 22yrs to 82yrs and there we 11. We spent most of the time around the pool and had a couple ot barbecues. The Villa was only a short walk to the Strip so the younger folks liked to go to the bars,. In all it was a fantastic holiday, enjoyed by all.

Great Villa with pool and games room

  • 4 of 5

The owner, Claudio, arranged the taxi pick up from the Airport for the 10 of us - which worked out perfectly.

We were then met at the Villa by Claudio who shows us around the Villa. It is a large Villa, exceptionally clean and with a great pool, games room and BBQ.

Claudio was very friendly and accommodating - allowing us to leave our luggage in the basement on our last day as we had a late flight home. We had a small query in the middle of the week - Claudio came round personally within a very short time to sort it out.

The walk to the beach was not as close as we expected - although it was 38degrees and we had young children with us.

There were no maps, leaflets, suggestions of places to eat etc that we have had in other villas so it took us a while to get our bearings.

All in all a great Villa, very professional, friendly owner and we all had a great time.

Fabulous family holiday

  • 5 of 5

Three of our families stayed recently in this beautiful family orientated accommodation located very close to all local amenities. Claudio arranged transport to & from the airport, met us at the villa & was at the end of the phone to help with any queries. The pool is a good size and well maintained & the addition of the games room provided good entertainment for both the kids & the adults. We had a 7 month old baby with us & the accommodation met every need to help the family enjoy & relax within the villa environment. The villa is both designed & decorated to a high standard & maintained throughout your stay. Supermarkets (Aldi & Lidl) are only a short taxi distance away & are a more convenient & cost effective way to shop. Overall this was a very enjoyable holiday and we will most definitely return here in the future & would therefore highly recommend this villa for family holidays.

Excellent well presented villa

  • 5 of 5

We travelled as a group of six adults and 4 children the eldest 6 and the youngest 18 months. The villa was ideal for our needs. It was very well appointed with all you need for a family holiday. The pool was a good size and enjoyed by everyone. The children spent many happy hours in it.

Claudio was very helpful on arrival taking time to give us a quick drive round the local area so we could get our bearings. During our stay he was on hand if needed and prior to arrival booked airport transfers for us which worked perfectly. Overall a perfect host and our deposit was returned very quickly following departure.

The villa is about a 15 minute walk from the Oura beach which is a good beach for all the family. All uphill on the return journey so you may want to take the taxi number with you to get back. Taxis were good but sometimes difficult to get them to answer the phone. We also used UBER which has just started in this area. They worked well for us.

The only downside was that to get to the old town you either had to take the train from the top of the strip or taxi which go quite expensive as we needed three taxis. We would recommend the old town in the evening for better family dining and entertainment.

Overall however this is a great villa with all you need for an excellent family holiday.
