Guestbook comments from the owner

Laura, Leeds, UK

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.

Beautiful Villa

  • 5 of 5

This villa is absolutely gorgeous. Andrew is adorable and so helpful and friendly. I went for two weeks to this villa with my husband 21 year old son and two 14 year old girls. Everyone loved it. We didn't want to come home and could quite easily have saved. Pool was lovely to cool down and the temperature was just right. It was actually warm on the evening when my on and daughters wanted a late night dip. Pool light lights up later on at night. It's lovely. Barbecue is great. Maids are exceptional and come 3 times a week and pool guy cleans the water once a week. There's everything you need in the villa. Excessive amount of wardrobe and cupboard space. Dishwasher and washing machine iron and ironing board. I actually did everyone's washing before I came home. The washer is excellent. Quite a few lines for drying. Could do with a few more pegs.lol dried in no time. Weather was hot through the day and varied at night. There were some nights if you went close to the beach in the old town you could have done with a little jacket. I will definitely be going back. Villa ideally situated. We walked to old town most nights which is on 2km. Was nice excercise. We got a taxi back though which was only 4-5 euros. Absolutely loved it no complaints whatsoever ever!!!! Thankyou soooooo much Andrew and also your team of cleaners. Loved it☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️🍰😀😃😀😀🌞🌞🌞

This was our 3rd visit to Villa Bernardo and once again it was wonderful :) Andrew is very helpful with information about the town and where to visit - the villa has everything you could possibly need - there is two fantastic restaurants within walking distance, although we tended to eat at the first one Farm Village Restaurant - wonderful food and staff :) - we will definitely be going back to villa Bernardo 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.

Travel:

The nearest airport is Faro (about 40km) and approximately 35 minutes drive. I help with airport transfers and car hire for guests wishing to discover other parts of Algarve (details below).

Faro Airport - 40km, Lisbon - 250km, Seville (Spain) - 250km.

Algarve is a region renowned for its mild and sunny climate, its miles of glorious sandy beaches with their stunning rock formations and its excellent sport facilities. It boasts an average of 3000 hours of sunshine per year. Its mild all year round with virtually no rain in the summer months. February sees the start of the spring and its warm in October. The Old Town of Albufeira which perches on the cliff top overlooking the the beach, retains a distinctive Moorish character and you can still see the fisherman bringing in their catch on Praia dos Pescadores (Fisherman's beach).
