About the Owner
Guestbook comments from the owner
My husband and I were lucky enough to stay in this villa when we first came to the Algarve. Our intention was to use it as a base while we toured up and down the coast looking for somewhere to buy. We loved it so much we ended up staying from January until May and it very quickly became our home, so much so that when the next guests were due to arrive, we didn't want to move out! The area is lovely with some of the most beautiful beaches you will ever see and the rock formations are amazing. We really didn't want to leave and have now bought a villa of our own to enjoy! Thanks to Frank & Fatima for making us so welcome - Andy & Linda

Lovely Family Holiday
We had a great family holiday in villa Miramar. From booking through to departure Frank was very helpful and the villa was clean and tidy we were 6 Adults and 3 young kids and all had a wonderful time. The villa has a great pool, air con, and is very well equipped. Unlike most villas their was always hot water so no cold showers and each bathroom has a bath. We will be booking for next year soon. Thanks to Frank and his family for our wonderful stay
Great Villa and Great Service
From the time we booked through owners direct we got fast feed back on questions and when we arrived at the villa the owner was their straight away to greet us. Everything we asked for was their including a high chair and a cot bed. We have stayed in 4 different villas in this area and this one had the best security. It was perfect for our family which was 2 grandparents, 2 parents and a 1-2 year old. Their was child gates fitted in all the right places and when we requested more sun shades they were brought as soon as possible.
Activity and Interests
Miramar is in a fantastic location for beach lovers, a 5 minute walk will take you to the safe sandy beach of Galé which goes on for miles, & has many different watersports available during the summer months. There are several other beaches around Galé, including Saõ Lourenço & Salgados, both within a short walk of the villa. Get to see some of the stunning rugged rock formations & private coves from the coastal paths or just enjoy the views & a glass of wine from one of the beach restaurants.
The local airport is Faro. Approx 42kms away and served by most UK and continental airports. From Faro you can travel by taxi, hire car or mini bus. The roads are good and easy to use, particularly the new motorway which runs just a few miles from the villa.
Car hire is not necessary, although we do recommend it wherever possible, as there are so many beautiful places to see.
Albufeira old town is approx 7kms, where there is an excellent choice of restaurants/bars & street entertainment.
For families with younger children who need entertaining, Zoomarine is approx 7/8kms. Various waterparks are only a short drive away, with enough pools and waterslides to keep them amused for hours!
There is a huge choice of boat and fishing trips from the local 400 berth marina - approx 5kms - see the dolphins, parasail or just book a leisurely cruise, the choice is yours.
The nearest supermarket is Apolonia which is roughly a 5 minute walk from the villa and has excellent produce. For more varied shopping visit the Algarve shopping centre, 10 minutes by car, (a mini shopping mall, housing around a 100 shops, the Continente - a massive supermarket - restaurants, fast food outlets, multi cinemas and bowling)
There is a good choice of restaurants/bars within walking distance.
