About the property

Villa in Guia, Nr Albufeira, Central Algarve, Portugal - Ideal for a relaxing holiday in the sun. Magnificent views over farmland towards the coast.

The villa comprises two self contained units with separate access: A (ground floor) two bedrooms, sleeps maximum 5 people and B (upstairs) two bedrooms, sleeps 4 people. The complete villa (A+B) sleeps 9 people in total. WHAT WILL NEVER HAPPEN IS THAT THE TWO UNITS WOULD BE LET TO DIFFERENT FAMILIES AT THE SAME TIME. Each unit have spacious and well equipped living accommodation, making it suitable for extended family groups or couples holidaying together who are happy to share the outside space but would welcome private living space.

The outside space makes this the perfect holiday retreat. With really comfortable garden furniture and a choice of terraces there is always a spot to relax in the sun or shade.

Fully air conditioned throughout.

The owners, Manuel and Josie live in the adjoining villa, but your privacy is guaranted.

Excellent stay in a green, sheltered, private surrounding

  • 5 of 5

We, 2 adults and 2 children, had a marvellous stay in Manuel de Castros Villa in July 2017. Quiet surrounding, fantastic pool, nice lounge area just outside parents bedroom overlooking the pool. Both breakfasts and a few dinners where spent in the gardens dining area.

Walking distance to Guia (approx. 15-20 min walk) with a few restaurants. By car you are able to reach most of what the Algarvecoast has to offer within 30-45 minutes drive - nearest beach 10 minute drive, cave excursion tours (or boat trip to other beaches nearby in Aracao de Pers) 15-20 min by car. Algarve shopping center is to recommend for shopping ( 5 mins by car). Has a food court as well as a very nice sizable supermarket.

In addition Manuel and his wife are nice caring hosts who certainly walked the extra mile! Assisted with car rental locally, due to late arrival made sure we had breakfast the following morning and assisted throughout our vacation with insightful tips on day tours etc.

Thanks for a fantastic vacation!

This was a great well spaced out villa for families,we stayed with our 3 kids on top floor while my sister's family stayed on bottom floor.my first impression was excellent, everything was clean and well maintained.The top floor had all you needed washing machine, dishwasher, cooking appliances even your own living area inside and eating area outside and in.The pool area was excellent and was cleaned a few times we where there.shops are about 10min walk however the owners live next door and took us 1st day shopping and was no problem taking myself a few times again though out our stay,plus offered us run to beach.our overall stay was fantastic, owners couldn't be more helpful, was lovely and quiet and would def recommend.plus only 10 min drive to old town albuefia.Thank you again for a great time Manuel and family from the Dawsons.

What a find - a beautiful villa in a very peaceful setting. Having the owner living next door was a bonus - Manuel made us feel very much at home from the moment we arrived in Guia and it was great having someone with local knowledge to point us in the right direction for restaurants shops and local areas to visit.

A perfectly relaxing holiday - bliss

Fantastic property

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to this property and we were not disappointed. The villa was very clean and well furnished throughout. The little touches and attention to detail were appreciated such as the welcome pack upon arrival, cleaning during our stay, towels changed etc. The outside of the villa was equally as impressive, with two dining areas downstairs overlooking the wonderful pool. The villa is split in two with a spacious, modern apartment upstairs. Staying with three families this allowed us to have a bit of space as well. The pool was lovely and a great size for lots of fun. The area of Guia was excellent and allows you an opportunity to experience authentic Portugal, with superb restaurants, bakery etc, it is also very handy for heading to Albufeira (the old town was great for the kids). The owner of the property Manuel was extremely friendly on arrival and was very helpful throughout when required. The area was very peaceful and was perfect for a thoroughly enjoyable family holiday. We will definitely be back.

Excellent Holiday Villa

  • 5 of 5

We liked to look of this Villa straight away and we were not disappointed when we arrived. The description was perfect and we found the villa to have everything we could possibly need. The kitchen was very well equipped and clean. We particularly liked the covered outside seating area for having our breakfast each morning. The booking was made very easy by Manuel and both he and his wife were very charming and only being next door meant they were available if we needed them. The Villa was only a 10 minute walk from Guia where you have your pick of many good places to eat. It was a 10 minute drive to Albufeira. We would definitely recommend this villa as it is in a very good location between Guia and Vale De Parra and the villa is situated within a quiet group of villas.
