About Liz mccollin

I live in the UK with my husband and our 2 children. My husband runs his own electrical company, and I am a full time mum! As a family we fell in love with Albufeira simply for the climate, the beaches and the easy way of living, which is why we decided to buy a second home in Portugal.

Liz mccollin purchased this villa in 2006

Why Liz mccollin chose Montechoro

After visiting many of the lovely areas within Albufeira, we decided that Montechoro was the perfect location. It is very central and not too far away from all of our other favourite places. We love the old town - it is very family friendly and the children love the entertainment of an evening. The famous strip is great too - here you find the bars, shops and many places to eat. Montechoro is close to these places - yet far enough not to hear the noise!

What makes this villa unique

We fell in love with our villa the moment we walked in. It is large and spacious, yet still feels cosy and homely. The location is great, very close ro a mini market shop, a play park with bar - open day and night, beauty salon, bus station and a local market just around the corner. The villa overlooks a green area, we have a little children's park, and lovely walkways. All of the bedrooms are on suite, but we have the added bonus of a seperate wc and shower in the downstairs hallway. The pool is perfect too - just the right size for everyone to enjoy. The access into the pool attracted us to it as it has large steps down rather than ladders - much better for children, or elderly. We also have a lockable gate on the terrace to prevent children getting to the pool on their own.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The house was great. Really big, bright, spacious and furnished to meet all our needs! The ensuite bathrooms with all 4 bedrooms made it very convenient for us to all get ready at the same time. All in all, we had a really great time and would definitely come back in the future! :)

“Words can not express exactly how alike the pictures are to the Villa and it’s even more perfect in real life – we just got in and went WOW!!.... I would say better than some of the 5 star hotels that myself and my friends have visited around the world - extremely high standards on everything. The owners have done a truly amazing job, the service and experience that we got in the run up to our stay was first class and would highly recommend the entire experience to anyone. Well done, cant thank you enough. We will almost definitively be back every year” – from me!!!

“Amazing, beautiful Villa! Has everything you need and in a perfect location! Can’t wait to go back!”

Beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

my husband and I took our three children, their partners and our 12 month old grandson to Casa Kelisia in July. The villa is well equipped, clean and well designed. Liz is really friendly and helpful. No hidden extras. We had a wonderful time and will certainly be returning. We hired a car but probably won't bother next time as we spent most of our time in the pool and, in any case, taxis are really cheap to get about. Thank you so much Liz. Best wishes, Carol and Les.

Fantastic Villa in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Wow this villa is superb. It felt like a home from home and had air con in each room. Villa was ideal for kids especially the little one as there was a gate down to the pool. Old town and the strip all within about 15 to 25 mins walking distance. Thanks very much Liz and Kev we cant wait to go back. Would definitely recommend this villa especially if you have kids.

Paradise in the sun

  • 5 of 5

4 of us stayed in this fantastic villa for two weeks & we all agreed we'd stayed for longer. We cannot fault this villa as it has everything we needed- perfectly located as its only a short walk to a cafe/bar with competitive prices & the old town within walking distance & well worth it- plenty to see & do plus many restaurants to choose from.
