About Karen Millar

My husband Steve and I live in Nottingham with our 2 children. We have holidayed in the area for the last 20 years and fell in love with it. We have owned 3 properties in the same area over the years but bought Villa Rosa 7 years ago.

We have made many friends in the area - some who own the restaurants or work in the village.

They all love children and it is a very safe place to go. Everyone is so friendly.

We love the fact that within a few hours we can be here even if it is sometimes only for a quick weekend. We always go home totally chilled out!!

Karen Millar purchased this villa in 2006

Why Karen Millar chose Aldeia das Açoteias

We bought the property 10 years ago after falling in love with the area. We had owned previous properties in the village but the location of the villa is ideal for Acoteias, Olhos D'Agua and Falesia. You do not need a car to enjoy many of the surrounding areas.

The beach of Falesia is stunning with the beautiful cliffs as a back drop.

The area has many lovely restaurants within walking distance offering a great choice from cheap and cheerful to 5* at the Sheraton Pine Cliffs resort just a few minutes walk away.

We are only 25 minutes from the airport.

What makes this villa unique

We are ideally situated not only for the fantastic beaches but the many championship golf courses in the area. We have a contact in the village that books the golf for us at discounted prices and they also run a taxi business so if you fancy going a little further a field they are on hand and are very reliable and reasonably priced.

Our property manager lives a couple of streets away and she always pops in the see if you have settled in and are happy with everything. She will do anything she can to make your stay as happy as possible!

Guestbook comments from the manager

"Excellent villa" 10/8/14 5*

My family and friends have just enjoyed an excellent week at the Villa Rosa villa in Acoteias,Portugal.The villa was more than well equipped and spotless,we enjoyed the location and did not need to hire a car as the taxi driver(Miguel) who was recommended by the owners was very nice and very efficient.It was an ideal location to Albefeura and Villamoura plus local to a supermarket and other bars and restaurants.The villa was luxury with all mod cons including sky sports .The maid came in during the week and the pool was cleaned on a regular basis.It was also very cheap to eat out on an evening in Portugal and we would definitely recommend.

Faro - approximately 30 minutes away
Nearest Golf
1 Kilometres
The 5* Sheraton Pine Cliffs Resort
Car: not necessary


The nearest beach is Falesia and this is a 15 minute walk from the villa. It can be reached by car in a couple of minutes. The village is midway between Albufeira and Vilamoura making all the beaches in these areas easily accessible by car.


The nearest airport is Faro which is approximately 30 minutes by car. Car hire is not essential but if you would like to get about and see more of this beautiful area then we would certainly recommend a car and this is something we can arrange for you.

We can also arrange a taxi transfer for you and the same local man will pick you up and take you out in the evenings if you want to go further afield. He is very reasonably priced and very reliable.


Actually situated in Falesia - there are many local restaurants and bars within walking distance.

The small village of Olhas D'Agua is also within walking distance.

Further Details:

Just along from the villa there is a Supermarket with a lovely deli/butchers and bakery.There is a Bank/pharmacy/newsagents all just a few minutes away.

Loved It

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a family holiday which included 3 under fives, we absolutely loved Villa Rosa. The villa was spotlessly clean, everything you need, the pool was great, had plenty of fun time. The village was quiet but had many lovely restaurants and very friendly. The Olympic bar round the corner does great breakfasts. Miguel the taxi driver was very good at picking us up from the airport and going to the golf courses which we booked in the village. I would recommend if you have young children, prams etc and no car you catch the bus round the corner and go to Olhos De Agua beach, only takes a few minutes. The beach is very child friendly and has plenty of facilities. I would like to thank Karen and Bernice for their help. I would certainly recommend Villa Rosa and hope to return in the future.

Absolutely perfect. Had everything you could need. Very clean and beautifully furnished. Quiet location but near enough to restaurants. Karen went out of her way to accommodate, making sure we had provisions for our late arrival. Would definitely come back...most relaxing holiday ever. Thanks

What a Gem

  • 5 of 5

Having recently returned from Villa Rosa our family has nothing but praise for this wonderful villa. The location is superb with lovely restaurants in close walking distance. We particularly liked the honey farm just down the lane, booking is highly recommended if you want to go for an evening meal as we did following a lunchtime visit earlier in the week. The villas welcome pack is full of useful recommendations (such as the Honey Farm) and ideas for places to visit both locally and further afield. We had a fabulous holiday and would highly recommend both the villa and area to anyone; we cannot wait to go back.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the lovely review - we love it when new clients visit our property and love it as much as we do. Glad you enjoyed the Honey Farm - we have never eaten there in the evening so will definitely try it when we go in August! We look forward to you revisiting our home again!

We have stayed in Villa Rosa many times. The villa is so chic, immaculate and spacious with a fantastic garden, pool and BBQ area. It is so well equipped (in fact you don't really need to leave it!)

Whilst it is nice to have a car to see the surrounding area it is not essential, as there are many fabulous restaurants, shops and supermarkets on your doorstep, as well as the beautiful beaches, all within easy walking distance.

Will definitely be staying there again (already booked for this summer to celebrate our silver wedding anniversary!)

Karen and Steve ,the owners are lovely, and couldn't be more helpful.

What a fantastic villa - everything went smoothly from booking to returning home. The villa is truly luxurious and the village location is ideal for the beach, shops and many lovely restaurants all on your doorstep.

Karen the owners booked a taxi and Miguel was great if we wanted to go out further afield - he had a mini bus so could take us all and collect us for a very reasonable rate!

Bernice the property Manager was excellent - she called in on our arrival to make sure we were ok and was on hand if we had any problems.

Great location for loads of golf courses which could be booked through the office in the village at discounted rates.

Wonderful villa, great location we have booked again for August!
