About the Owner

Hi, my name is Colleen, hence the reason why the villa is called "Casa Colleena". My husband and I purchase the villa, because we have three children and felt it would be better to holiday in a family home, rather than a hotel, which we had been doing previously. This was the best move we could make because, is made it home from home but in the sun. No more jumping up and down to purchase drinks or ice-creams, from the hotel bar, fighting for a sun bed at the hotel pool side, having to pull ourselves away from the pool area to get ready for the evening meal, at the set time, in the hotel. This has made our holidays much more relaxing. We have the best of both worlds now, because we can choose to eat out, or just chill out at home, having a family BBQ. in the sun in our swim wear.

From the Owner

We purchased the property for the above reasons, and the reason we decided on the location, was because it was so close to the main resort of Albufeira, so we could have the best of both worlds. Be in a quiet area, with the beaches close to hand, and the many restaurants a walk away or if we wanted the night life, shops etc., that would only take us a 5 minute car journey, I know that many repeat bookings I have had, is not just because of the villa, is it also because of the locality. The beaches are not as crowded, and they are all different, there are seven beaches in the area, from small coves, to Gale Beach which just has miles, and miles, of endless white sand swing right around the bay.

Activity and Interests


There are several beaches in the local area, ranging from Gale with miles and miles or sand following around the bay, to small intimate coves with the rock formation, each beach is individual, all the beaches are manned by lifeguards, and have restaurants and toilet facilities. By car Gale beach is 2 mins away, walking distance approx 35 mins. All the beaches are kept to a high standard, and are very picturesque.


Faro Airport is the nearest to the Algarve. The flight time is approx two and a half hours. The villa is approx 40mins from the airport, the route is mainly motorway. I can arrange for car hire either at the airport for collection, or delivered to Casa Colleena, and collected from the villa. I can also organise a mini bus for pickup from Faro Airport to the villa and back again, for 8 people or more.


Albuferia is 5 mins away by car to the Old Town. There you will find bars restaurants and shops. Bus station, money exchange etc. Gia is a small village which are about 25 mins away with bars, restaurants etc, further on is the Algarve Shopping Mall - a large shopping mall with designer shops, hypermarket, cinema which has 10 screens, and a large food hall, with everything from Mc Donalds, Burgerking, Kentucky Chicken, Chinese, to Itailian, Brazilian, Portuguese restaurants etc.
