Why Debbie Sellers chose Albufeira

After many many years holidaying in the beautiful Algarve a few times per year and renting other peoples villas we decided that it was definately a home from home to us and very dear to our hearts. The pull back was too much so in 2004 we decided that it was time we made our home from home there too. The beaches surpass any we have seen in other countries, the food is always perfect and very reasonably priced, the people are wonderful and as you will know if you have been before the atmosphere is laid back and please chill!! Of course the sun shines nearly all year round which is an added bonus. The villa is comfortable and spacious with its own pool and plenty of outside area to relax in. All in all our home from home which is offered to you for your relaxing holiday. Our home is FULLY ALGARVE TOURISM LICENSED (licence number 733/15) as it passes all Algarve Tourism regulations for your safety and protection during your holiday. Please see our website at for more information.

Guestbook comments from the owner

On behalf of all my family I would like to thank you for a most enjoyable holiday at Casa Palmeira. The villa was lovely with plenty of room and everything we needed was available. Maurice and family.

Just wanted to drop you a few lines to tell you how much we enjoyed our stay in your villa. It was wonderful and even more beautiful than the pictures on the website. Gillian and family.

We had a wonderful time and loved the villa, pool and garden. We were able to chill out for the week which was just what the doctor ordered. If you'll have us back we hope to visit the villa again. Andy

Thanks very much for everything. The villa was beautiful and we had a great time. The weather was really nice, we enjoyed the pool and the beach and had just the kind of relaxing time we were looking for. Andy M.

Better than amazing

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at the fantastic villa for the last week in March 2018 as a couple with a 13 year old child. The villa has absolutely everything anybody could need whist away on holiday, and then some. Over the year the owners (Debbie and Martin) have put a lot of time and effort into upgrading the villa and today it is now both immaculate and modern.

The location is superb and just a short 5-10 minutes walk into Guia with all local amenities to hand. A walk of 10 minutes the other way takes you to the Algarve shopping centre with (I kid you not) a gigantic continental supermarket selling everything you could think of. Taxi's are available outside of here to get you and your shopping back to the villa if you buy more than you can walk with; however I found using the 'Uber' app on my phone (first time user of Uber) very easy in the Algarve and very reasonably priced. An 'Uber' ride from the villa to Albufeira costs around 7 euro and the drivers are all very helpful and friendly.

The area around the villa is peaceful and the grounds are large so plenty of room for any kids to exhaust themselves. The pool is a good size too and having roman steps makes getting in and out very easy. The villa has plenty of areas to indulge in some local cuisine with a large indoor dining table, breakfast bar to the kitchen and outdoor dining facilities also to hand. The kitchen is well equipped with all the appliances and equipment you could need and plenty of pots, pans, crockery and cutlery etc. There is also a barbecue outside for the 'al fresco' dining experience; and with Guia being the home of 'Piri Piri' chicken this is a must try experience at one of the many restaurants available there.

Overall we found that this villa exceeded all our expectations and Debbie will answer any questions that you may have and process your booking in a very efficient and professional manner. Anybody who stays at this villa for their Algarve holiday is sure to be impressed.

Many thanks to Debbie and Martin.

Paul Hargreaves, Hull, East Yorkshire.

Beautiful villa set in a lovely garden

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful villa. Set in a residential area so if it's peace and quiet you want, it's ideal. The villa was clean, well presented throughout and has every thing a family needs. The out side area is underrated, the pool area is large enough for 6 loungers , there are two areas for outside dining, in the evening the outdoor terrace and pool area looks amazing with the lights on.

The owner and manager were at hand via email and in person when needed, they provided speedy and reliable service with issues big or small.

I car is recommended to get about to the larger shops and attractions and beaches, there are cafes and smaller shops within walking distance.

I would highly recommend this villa and for larger families there is an added annex. Beautiful villa, great holiday and great owners

My perfect holiday.

  • 5 of 5

It was love at first sight when we arrived. The Villa is beautiful and was perfect for our family, stunning, spacious and relaxing. The neighbour was amazing very helpful as was Debbie the owner. Lots of lovely touches - the wine rack - drink and reload! The pool - the beautiful gardens...dining outside. We cannot wait to return and explore some more. Thanks for making my 50th celebrations absolutely perfect!

Wonderful villa for a relaxing break

  • 5 of 5

A lovely villa, very spacious, very clean and well maintained. Comfy beds with proper duvets! There is a lot of outdoor space with a large pool so great for the kids. Location is wonderful, on a very pretty road and only a short walk from Guia. A short drive from Gale with lovely beaches. Extremely quiet and peaceful, perfect for a relaxing break. Would definitely stay again.
