About the property

Villa in Albufeira, Central Algarve, Portugal - In A Superb Position For The Beach, Famous Strip And Old Town Of Albuferia

After many holidays on the Algarve my wife and I decided to purchase a property for our regular family holidays. We decided that this location (Areias De S.Joao) was perfect for our family needs and decided to purchase one on the development. The property one of seventeen was completed in 2006 and is a luxury cluster villa, with all mod cons. Access via automatic control security gates. Ideal location for beach lovers and golfers alike. Quiet area enabling a good nights sleep but within walking distance for both 'The Strip' and 'The Old Town of Albufeira'. Here you will find a vast array of quality restaurants suitable for all budgets. The 3 principle golf courses in Albufeira are Salagados Golf Course, Pine Cliffes and Balaia Golf Village - not to mention Vilamoura which is only a short drive away.

We have just returned from a 10 night stay in this Villa and we're sorry we didn't book for longer. This Villa is great, it's everything you need for a perfect family break. Space, home comforts and lots of towels! The beds are super comfy, there is everything you need and more in the kitchen, BBQ and having 2 balconies and a terrace made picking where to sit with a G&T very difficult. The villa has its own sunbeds so no need to jump out of bed early with your towel.

We stayed with our 2 children aged 9 and 12, who had the pool to themselves some days. The villa is perfectly situated and walking distance to some great restaurants particularly Stews and more. The tourist train stops at the roundabout at the top of the road and after a pleasant 10 min journey you at the top the escalator to the beach in the old town. All the waterpark buses stop on the same roundabout too. The beach is only a 7 minute walk away (the kids timed it!).

Neil the owner couldn't have been more helpful. He answered all our questions quickly and was friendly and helpful from our first enquiry.

In summary this is a fab villa, which we paid a good price for in an ideal location. We plan to return in the future.

Lovely Property

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommended. Stayed here with friends in May. Very well equipped property. Tastefully decorated. Spacious rooms. Two large balconies on 1st floor and patio area facing the pool. Some nice restaurants within easy walking distance (5-10 mins). Close to a stop for the tourist 'train' which stops at the top of the old town and the strip.

Have stayed in several villas on this complex after visiting this area for many years and have stayed twice in this one with another visit booked as we feel this one is by far the best in terms of position, décor and most importantly cleanliness !! Owner Neil always responds to correspondence and answers all queries promptly.

There are several bars, small supermarkets (much lager one on main road) and eateries within 5 mins walk of the property and the lively "stripe" a flat 10 mins walk and in opposite direction is Albufeira a not so flat 20 mins walk but very doable, there is a tourist road train that stops very close to the property and takes you around resort regularly and a taxi to and from main town is only 4-5 Euro.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

The house is extremely well maintained. Perfect location for beach, short walk to old town (small hill back but very doable). Great restaurant called Tres Palmeiras nearby. The house overlooks the pool which is really clean. Everything you need is in the house, lounges, bar-b-q, towels. We had a wonderful week here with friends.

A couple of small things, ask for 2 sets of keys if more than 1 couple and the large gate does not work which means you have to park the car in the road.

We would love to return.
