Review Submitted: September 28, 2010 Date of Stay: September 2010

We have just returned from a 10 night stay in this villa and really enjoyed ourselves. The villa is very spacious and is very true to the photographs if not better (pool in particular seems bigger than the photos). It housed the 6 of us perfectly and we had no complaints at all. The maid service was excellent - fresh towels and linen provided frequently, the washing machine came in handy as well.

As far as the location it was a comfortable downhill stroll into Albufeira old town and a taxi home was about 5 euros. They have built a new path that leads directly into the old town which is much more direct from the Quinta Dos Calicos estate.

I would really recommend this villa and Andrew the owner was so friendly and helpful. Many thanks Andrew for a fantastic stay and we hope to return sometime in the future.

Just had our second visit to villa Bernardo it was as good as the last time . The villa is excellently maintained and the owner cannot do enough to make sure your stay is the best it can be .the villa is actually within walking distance of Albufiera and very near to the LIDlL store making shopping simple and a walk into town a nice experience . there is also an excellent restaurant at he bottom of the hill reasonably priced and excellent food and friendly service. I would recommend this villa holiday to anyone.we will be going back next year.

Superb Villa - would recommend

  • 5 of 5

Myself and family have stayed in this Villa three times now. It is in a beautiful location, very clean and well maintained throughout.

Andrew Ziobrowski [the owner] is so helpful, nothing too much trouble and only a phone call away should you need him. He greets you on arrival with nice cold drinks ! The area is beautiful and the restaurants at the bottom of the hill are superb [Cocheira and Farm Village] Lovely walk into Albufeira [but taxi back!] Would definitely recommend to friends and family and we will be holidaying there again next year.

Fabulous Villa Bernardo

  • 5 of 5

What a fabulous, well appointed, modern and luxurious Villa to spend a week or so near to the Old Town of Albufeira, only 20 minutes walk away.

Andrew made us extremely welcome and provided us with some useful information about the area and its offerings and was very helpful throughout the booking process, even arranging car hire for us through Pandacar, which went without a hitch.

The pictures don't so this property justice, it is very clean, has a great layout and maintains a nice temperature despite the heat outside, the pool and BBQ area are superb, with good privacy and shelter if you want to get out of the sun for a while.

There is an excellent restaurant, Restaurante a Cochera, which has an amazing selection of wine and a great menu just 5 minutes walk away and of course the options in the Old Town are plenty.

Public transport seems to be very good, although we hired the car which made life very easy.

The villa is family friendly and is spread over 5 levels with plenty of space to sleep six very comfortably.

I could go on and on, suffice to say we had a thoroughly enjoyable, relaxed and fun holiday and I would highly recommend Villa Bernardo to anyone, we will be back!!
