About the property

Villa in Forte Sao Joao - Albufeira, Algarve - Excellent Location, Only 5 Minutes Walk To The Beach, Albufeira Old Town Is Only 15 Mts Walk

This beautiful villa offers comfortable accommodation for up to six people. Forte Atlantico is situated in Forte São João, close to Areias Sao Joao near Albufeira old town. Forte Atlantico is only 5 minutes walk and has an easy access to the golden sands of Ft. Sao Joao and Praia Da Oura. If you choose to stay within the condominium you have the benefit of the shared pool and landscaped gardens of Forte Atlantico and you may prefer to relax in the privacy of this wonderful development. Although central to amenities, Forte Atlantico is in a quieter location, within easy walking distance of the Old Town and the Strip, offering the best of both worlds for those who like to relax by day and party by night!

Above and beyond

  • 5 of 5

Manuela went above and beyond from start to finish. She arranged all transfers to and from the airport, she greeted us at the villa and explained everything. We all had a super time. The villa has everything you could need. Located in a super spot between the strip and old town minutes away. My mum left a blouse behind and Manuela even posted it back!!!! Highly recommended

A Fantastic Villa.

  • 5 of 5

Myself, my wife and our 3 boys 12, 14, 16 stayed here for a week in mid June. We had a fantastic time with the Villa in a very central location; we were near all the main attractions. We were 5 minutes walk from the beach and 10 minute walk to either the Strip or the Old Town. The Villa was well equipped with TV, Dishwasher, Washing Machine and Air Con in all the Bed Rooms and Living Room. The pool was very clean as was the rest of the Villa. We were picked up at the Airport by Branca, what a lovely lady who brought us shopping. Manuela the lady I was dealing with was first class and a joy to deal with. All in all we had a fantastic time and I would recommend this villa as the perfect holiday home.

Great Villa

  • 5 of 5

Just after retuning from a 3 week holiday at this villa.

I couldn't recommend this villa enough. A 3 bedroom well equipped villa with everything you need for your stay. We are a family of 5 (with young children) and the villa was ideal for us. My brother and his partner came for a week during our stay and there was loads of room for all of us.

The villa is in a small cluster with a shared pool and baby pool. We had the pool to ourselves a lot of the time. Grounds are well looked after and one feature I liked was that everything was very secure. You need a key to access the condominium with shutters on the windows and patio doors.

The villa is in an ideal position with a short walk to the strip and old town. Close to shops and restaurants but yet far enough away from the buzz on the strip. Beach is around a 5 min walk. Not too steep of a hill on the way back.

I would like also also mention the two women who made sure our stay was stress free. Manuela who we booked with and her daughter Branca who took care of us. Nothing was a problem, trips to zoo marine etc. loved it so much we have booked again for next year.
