About the property

Villa in Vale de Parra, Central Algarve - Quiet, Private Location Near Village, Restaurants, Golf Course And Beaches

Vila Cristina stands in a commanding position on the edge of the village of Vale de Parra facing due south with superb views of the coasts and surrounding countryside. It is totally private - not overlooked by any other properties. The villa overlooks the 18-hole Salgados Golf Course with its excellent facilities: clubhouse, bar and driving range. Set in about 1 acre of land, the villa is approx. 1km from mini-markets, restaurants and Gale's long sandy beach. The villa is approached over a driveway with a parking/turning area in front of a garage. The split-level design takes full advantage of the superb location. The villa is well situated for a quiet relaxing holiday and yet within easy reach of the resorts of Albufeira and Armacao de Pera with their numerous bars, restaurants and shops etc. Faro airport is 40km from the villa.

About The Owner

We live in lovely Falmouth - Cornwall UK - as former hotel owners here we know how important holidays are to everyone. Dad, Mum and 5 children - have enjoyed many holidays at Vila Cristina. Now the family are grown up they still love going to the villa with their spouses and friends.

The Owner purchased this villa in 1994

Why The Owner chose Albufeira

Our friends owned Vila Cristina and suggested that we have a holiday there in 1993. We immediately loved the villa and the area. The position of the villa captivated us because of the views over the golf course to the sea beyond - we have never tired of this view from the balcony. We stayed in other villas in the area but none of them had such a beautiful view. We did not hesitate when we knew of the possibility to purchase Vila Cristina. The villa is very private, away from busy towns but not far from restaurants, the beach, a golf course and coastal walks. The Algarve is a wonderful place for a holiday - our own family have spent many happy times there over the years.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We are absolutely loving our stay at Vila Cristina - so good to be back here again.

I have not felt so relaxed for a very long time - this is just what was needed.

Endless blue skies with sunshine all day everyday and a very welcoming villa - and...the view...well, it's just stunning.

Beautiful house with everything I need. In my view, we do not need the maid to go every day.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments. I am delighted you liked my villa. The maid usually works for a few hours four morning each week during the summer months. If guests would rather she didn't come so often they can ask her not to come everyday but she does need to be there on some of the days to keep the laundry up to date.
