Thank you for the E-Mail. We all had a brilliant holiday and everyone commented on how impressed they were with the villa. The bedrooms were spacious and had lots of wardrobe space, the kitchen was well equipped and the pool area and games room were superb. Thank you very much for your help with the booking and organising our taxi back to the airport. We would definetely consider staying again and will recommend to any freinds/family visiting the area. Thank you again

All we expected and more

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Villa Vaz to celebrate my 60th Birthday , a mixed group of young and older couples and a small child. The facilities were as described. Good size bedrooms with 6 bathrooms ( 4 0n suite ) so there was no waiting issues getting ready to go out. The location is residential so the nights were very quiet even though the main town was only 15 minutes walk away. We spent most of our nights in the old town which is delightful and very active. Good choice of Bars and restaurants . The only draw back to going into town was the journey back. Going is all down hill but coming back is quite a climb. However the Taxi rank in town was very efficient and a 4 person cab back at the end of the night was under 4 euro's so good value there.

Villa Vaz is fully equipped so we did also cook and barbeque with out any problems . Local supermarkets are just 300mtrs away and I would urge a visit to the Municipal Market , fresh food and Newspapers!! For the more adventurous the bus station just 800mtrs away offers bus trips to Faro in the East and Lagos in the west at very reasonable fares.

A word about the swimming pool , it is unheated so it will be fresh. The weather during our visit was very good so it did not matter to much. The games room is a good facility although to my surprise the people in the group showed little interest in the games room preferring the outdoor life.

The Villa Vaz is very secure but it is on several levels so beware of steps.

Mr Vaz is a lovely Gentleman and he is supported by the lovely Anabela , just a note of caution Mr Vaz will turn up early in the morning to service the pool. It is not a problem except the first time when it frightened us to death when the lights in the back suddenly came on!! AS I say no problem when you knew about it. So all in all Villa Vaz ticked the boxes for facilities . Alberfuria ticked the boxes for things to do and as usual on holiday be prepared to experience the different and enjoy it.

Fantastic villa vaz!

  • 5 of 5

Back from a fabulous weeks holiday staying at villa vaz. There were 11 of us staying and there was more than enough room. I have to say the photos do not do this villa justice. It has everything you need and more. Very clean and extremely well maintained both inside and outside. The pool and outside area is perfect. Annabel and Mr vaz are lovely people and very friendly and helpful. A welcome pack of the basic essentials including bread and milk awaited us which was much appreciated and very thoughtful. Thank you! The villa is close to aldi and lidl and a 15 min walk to the old town (be aware this is a fairly steep walk in parts). That said taxis are 4 euros max. Lots of lovely places to eat especially along the beachfront. We cannot recommend villa vaz highly enough and hope to stay again sometime.

Well located villa which ticks all the boxes

  • 5 of 5

We spent 8 nights at villa vaz arriving the day before my birthday. This was our first stay at this villa and proved to be the ideal place to celebrate with a large family group. Of note is that you do not need to hire a car. There is a lidl (amazing bakery and fishmonger) and an aldi on your door step and the old town is a 10 to 15 minute walk. We went to zoo marine twice and on both occasions went in taxis. We arranged airport transfers with Anabela which were fantastic. The weather was truly lovely in May and we spent most of our time outside enjoying the lovely clean pool the out side seating area and the loungers. I would recommend this Villa to others and felt it was good value for money given our previous holidays in Albufeira.

Absolutely fantastic villa!

  • 5 of 5

Can't recommend this villa enough - the pictures don't do it justice! Excellent location, fresh meat and veg market, Aldi and Lidl all just a two minute walk away, and the old town and beach just a 10 minute walk.

The villa was in pristine condition with very well maintained lawn and gardens. Great pool area, plenty of space for 11 adults and really well equipped. Games room was a great bonus too. From start to finish Ana was a delight to deal with, and she made us feel really welcome by popping in twice to see how we were doing. Thanks to her and Mr Vaz for a fantastic holiday - we will definitely be recommending it!

So relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Once again we had a fab holiday, 2nd time staying here, 8 adults, 3 kids and a baby. Everything we needed in Villa. Kids had so much fun and adults had an even better time with the Pool table. Sun lounger for everyone, excellent BBQ area and large grass area for kids to play ball in the evenings. Nice quiet area at night time, 10 mins from beach and old town, Lidls and Aldis 2 min walk away, very convenient. Ana always a phone call away, called a few times to see how we were doing, a lovely lady. Just one problem, we only stayed 10 nights, all would have loved to have stayed a month, who knows, maybe next time. Would highly recommend this beautiful Villa..
