Top Class Villa With 3 or 4 bedrooms, Private Heated Pool, Air Con. Beach Nearby



Updated: 13-Oct-2016
Villa in Sao Rafael, Albufeira, Central Algarve, Portugal - Within Walking Distance To Beach

Casa Antonio, our beautiful holiday villa is located 3km west of Albufeira, in a great position only around 400 metres to the lovely Praia do Coelho beach and close to the popular beaches of Gale, Sao Rafael, Evaristo, Castelo, some of the best beaches in Portugal. Several restaurants including O'Marinheiro and Dom Dinis and a few shops are within a few minutes walk.

We get many repeat bookings each year, please read our reviews.

Our villa can be rented with 3 or 4 bedrooms for 2016. The prices shown are for 3 bedrooms, and the 4th bedroom will be available at a supplement of £150 per week.

Pool heating to 25 degrees is included in the rental price, making this a great villa for early and late season holidays.

For those not familiar with the Algarve or Albufeira, the area to the west of this popular resort is considered the best places to stay by seasoned visitors. You will find at least eight beautiful sandy beaches and coves within just a few minutes of our small selection of villas, most with beach bars and restaurants. There are several well stocked supermarkets and a huge selection of good restaurants to choose from. Although close to the Algarve’s most popular resort Albufeira, we find most of our guests only pay the odd visit into Albufeira, preferring the beauty and peace and quite of the area around our villas, and its fabulous beaches. If you want more information on the area, please contact us.

Casa Antonio is very tastefully decorated and fully equipped to the highest standard. Pool heating to 25 degrees is included (extra for a higher temperature), Air Conditioning and WIFI Internet connection is also included in the rental, and all the bathrooms have recently been renewed in a contemporary style, and decorated with beautiful tiles. A new kitchen has been installed for summer 2016.

Casa Antonio is situated in Sesmarias, within its own walled garden with electric controlled gates. The garden is on one level with terraces, lawns and a big covered barbecue and dining area, which also has a ping pong table under cover. There are just 3 small steps down from the terrace to the garden level, and the whole of the interior is on one level making it suitable for the disabled. The swimming pool is 80cm at the shallow end and 1.40m at the deepest, with walk in steps at the shallow end, making entry to the pool easy. The pool has an electric cover, and the whole of the pool terrace has been renewed in a light grey stone during early 2015.

A bus service into Albufeira, and to Gale beach runs from nearby, making this villa suitable for non-drivers.

Our villa has many repeat bookings every year.

Accommodation at this very superior villa comprises hall leading to spacious sitting/dining room with satellite TV, wood burning stove and doors opening onto the pool, terrace and beautiful gardens.

Very well equipped kitchen with dishwasher, fridge/freezer, and washing machine (new kitchen in 2016) and door onto covered dining terrace which overlooks the pool and garden. There is a large marble and wood dining table.

Master double bedroom with very large bathroom en-suite with huge walk in shower. Doors from bedroom onto the pool terrace.

A twin bedroom, with doors to pool terrace, and its own bathroom across corridor with walk in shower, wc etc.

Another twin bedroom with en-suite bathroom with shower above bath.

The new 4th bedroom will probably be a twin, but can be pushed together to make a large double. This bedroom is accessed from the patio overlooking the garden and pool.

Pool heating to 25 degrees is included . All linen and towels are provided. Bed linen is changed once per week, and towels changed twice per week. Swimming pool towels are provided. Maid service 3/5 days per week, Free Wifi, Local English Villa Manager.

Hi Andrew, Paul

Just to say thank you for last week at Casa Antonio. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the villa, which is very well appointed and immaculately kept. The maid and house manager were very pleasant and Pauline was most helpful. Your house is in good hands! A return visit may well be on the cards or pehaps one of your other villas.

Thanks again

Warren Terry

Hello Paul, Andrew

Casa Antonio

  • 5 of 5

The photos on the website did not do the villa justice, it was absolutely beautiful, We could not fault the villa or the service we received from help from the owners, Maria the maid and the pool guy - it was fabulous. We spent 2 days on our own and then the family arrived with my grandson, of course we had to watch him as he is crawling but everything went to plan. There is no problem walking to and from the beach as long as you are fairly mobile. We didn't hire a car and found that taxis were reasonably cheap to get to and from the larger supermarkets, but there are some smaller ones in walking distance. Restaurants close to the villa were all lovely in various ways, staff were really friendly.

Casa Antonio is a great villa. It was better than we expected, so much nicer than the photos online (and we thought those were pretty good!).

Well equipped.

Great outdoor area.

Perfect for a family holiday.

Friendly cleaner that came every other day.

Top class villa

  • 5 of 5

We were so impressed with casa Antonio on arrival. It was even better than it looked on the website. The villa is beautiful, everything inside looked brand new. Fully equipped kitchen , with loads of extras to make our stay so comfortable. The pool & outdoor area was perfect for our stay with young kids, heated pool & electric pool cover was a real plus for us. The villa was spotless and it was cleaned every second day. Plenty of fresh towels and even bath robes were supplied. Location was great , you would need a car to go food shopping etc, beach and small town with restaurants & bars were in walking distance. We are already planning on booking again for next year.

Having been to the Algarve now eight times we can truly say that Casa Antonio

is our favourite villa having stayed there four times already and booked for 2016 as well. We have recently come back from Casa Antonio and even though it as always been a 5 star villa to us the recent improvements make it even better. The barbecue and table tennis area are great and the pool area looks stunning, like the electric pool cover too. It is maintained to a high spec and everything in the villa is clean and well looked after, compliments to Maria the maid. There are some lovely beaches close by lots of good restaurants and lots of nice places to visit if you have a car which I would recommend. Would also like to give Johnny Hoopers Saxophone Bistro a mention see trip advisor if you looking for a good night out and if you can tear your self away from this beautiful villa.
