About the Owner

We bought the villa in 2002 as a place to bring our young children for holidays. It has been a perfect holiday villa - and we now bring the grand children !

Thanks again for the use of your villa. It is great to find somewhere decent to stay that is close to the beach and the night life. The kids loved playing with all of the other children in the on-site pools and made some good friends. They are alreadfy asking of we can go back again next year - so I will be in touch again soon to sort out some dates.

Thanks again

A fantastic holiday and villa

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed in Balaia Golf Village previously but not at this villa. We had a lovely week, the villa was very well equiped and is in a great location for the main pool, restaurant, reception and a short walk to the nearest shop. We would have a stroll to the shop every morning for fresh croissants for breakfast, they make a lovely coffee too!

The resort is beautiful, clean and well maintained and the reception staff are always very helpful. They booked a number of taxis for us to get to nearby restaurants and a day trip to Zoomarina, a must if you have small children.

We hope to be back again soon.

Great Holiday in Balaia!

  • 5 of 5

The resort itself is gorgeous, spotlessly maintained and perfectly suited to families. We loved all the pool/café options. Villa 8 was the ideal base for our 2 families together (2 couples + 2 2 year olds) with plenty of space for us all. We were all impressed by the quality of the facilities & décor of the villa (cbeebies on the tv for the kids was a godsend!) I can’t remember the last time I found a holiday to be so completely relaxing and hassle-free (this was partly down to the amount of info we received in advance from the owner, Richard)We will definitely return to Balaia resort again & hopefully this villa!

Location

From the Owner

We loved the fact that when we get to the villa there is no need for a car , so we can just relax. The villa is on a peaceful complex with fantastic grounds , yet everything is in walking distance, including the beautiful beach, golf course and hundreds of bars and restaurant's. We also loved the fact that it is on a complex , where there are kids clubs and kids activities and the children can easily make friends in the clubs or just in the pool.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Faro & we can organise private transfers for 35E at 20 Kilometres Nearest Golf : On site 9 hole golf course and driving range at 100 Metres Nearest Restaurant : On site restuarant, plus many more a short walk at 50 Metres Nearest Beach : Maria Luisa - Blue flag sandy beach- toilets& cafe at 500 Metres Car: not necessary

Coast/Beach:

The villa is only a short walk from the nearest beach (about 10 mins down a safe and quiete road/track). The beach is clean, safe and has beautiful golden sand (see picture below). There is a new beach cafe, which provides lunches, drinks, ice cream and cold bear etc. It is also open in the evening - and it is a delight to sit with a cold bear watching the sun set - or eating a meal of sardines or tuna steak etc. Kids meals are available - and the kids can play on the beach after the meal.

Travel:

The villa is just 30 mins from Faro airport. We can arrange a private transfer from the airport (31 euros for up to 4 people or 49 euros for 4+). ALternatively we can recommend a good car hire company, who will provide the car at the airport, or will deliver it to the villa for you. A hire car is not essential, as everything is within walking distance or a short taxi ride away (there are 3 small supermarkets within 3 minutes walk and a larger one just a mile away - with taxi rank outside.

Distances:

The villa is about 15 minutes walk (or 2 mins in taxi) from the small but lively fishing village of Olos de Agua in one direction and an area known as 'the strip' in the other direction. The strip is an area on the outskirts of Albufeira with hundreds of friendly bars and family restuarants. The famous old fishing twn of Albufeira itself is about a mile further on - about 5 minutes in a taxi.

Search Google Earth using 'Balaia Golf Village, Abufeira, 8200' to see exact location.

Further Details:

The Balaia complex has a 24 hour reception. They are always very helpful and will be happy to help you with directions, or can book taxis and local restaurants for you. The on-site restuarant is located next to the main pool near the villa and provides excellent lunches and good value evening meals.

Tnternet access is available in reception using three web-terminals , or wireless access is available in reception and in the main restuarant/bar area.

Notes:

  • Notes on accommodation: The villa and complex is ideal for families, as the garden and pool areas are safe and have plenty of shade, plus it is only a short walk to the beautiful safe, sandy beach (the beach bar/restaurant is also a superb place for evening family meals - or a family BBQ). Other benefits for families with children include: Safe enclosed garden (with gates on all exits and a gate at the bottom of the stairs to the roof terrace). Free use of a Cot, High Chair and fold away pram. Plenty of beach toys, buckets, spades, and floats for the pool, plus brollies and wind break for the beach. Plenty of shade in the garden and around the pool area. Shallow toddler pool. A small playground - with swing, slide and sand pit. On-side Childrens Club (local charge applies). Though we do not have air conditioning, we have fans in all the bedrooms, plus all windows have steel shutters or grills, so windows can be safely left open at night, creating a cooling breeze through the villa. Outside: The villa has its own private garden, large patio and roof terrace. You also have access to many acres of beautiful gardens on the rest of the complex (which is maintained to a very high standard). On the complex you also have access to six different pool areas the nearest of which is 20m away and has a large main pool, a heated smaller pool and a shallow toddlers pool). There are 4 tennis courts, a gym, indoor pool, driving range and a 9 hole golf course. The main bar and restuarant for the complex is next to the main pool - 30m from the villa. Again - see our website (link below) for further details and pictures. Utility Room: Small utility room with washing machine and tumble dryer. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: All towels and bed linen are provided (you just need to bring tea towels). The Villa will be cleaned before your stay and a daily maid service is available if required - at an extra charge.
