Fantastic place absolute perfection, wouldn't have changed a single thing.

  • 5 of 5

Brilliant place if your going to Albufeira this is the place to stay. Lovely house has everything you need. The small pool was perfect for the hot weather. Real home from home. Old Town is great some fantastic eating places and nice evening entertainment for families too. Took the train around new Town and so appreciated that we were staying in the old town. The house is just behind the square up some steps with a lovely view from the 2 balconies. You can hear the hustle and bustle in the evening but not loud and quite nice actually. Came home totally relaxed. Will definitely go again x

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a wonderful review. It sounds like you had the most fantastic time in our lovely holiday home, we pride ourselves on making sure it is as comfortable as possible for all our guests and like you said a real home from home. We also love the Old Town with its many different restaurants all offering such gorgeous menus and our family really enjoy the evening entertainment in the square, with the puppeteer being one of my personal favourites. We are so glad you had a relaxing holiday and we would love to welcome you back in the future. Thank you Karen

Amazing stay!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in Karen's town house. The accommodation was spotlessly clean and had everything needed so that your stay was as comfortable as possible. There was cool bags, umbrellas and beach towels for the beach and the outdoor area of the townhouse was lovely with an amazing view! The plunge pool was a definite plus point. We loved Albuferia it iis a very family friendly resort and the beach is amazing! You are very close to the centre but not disturbed by the great nightlife. All in all we had a ball!

Fabulous house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a very restful week in this lovely house. Everything about it was perfect especially the small pool. This was surprisingly deeper than we thought it would be. Very handy having a washing machine and full kitchen facilities - a real home from home. Great location with minimal noise given how close it is to the bars & restaurants. Would love to return to this little gem of a place. Excellent communication from Karen and would recommend using the airport transfer that she can book for you. Reliable service from them.

Highly recommended staying at this property. You won't be disappointed!

Lovely two weeks stay in this homely villa

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable accommodation. The oven was not working which was a bit of a disappointment but we used the BBQ instead. The steps down to the old town were a bit of a killer but did not put us off as we would consider a return visit. Clean and comfortable with a lovely outside space. Portuguese people extremely friendly in the bars and restaurants.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your recent review of our wonderful holiday home, we are so glad you found our place comfortable and clean. I am sorry you were disappointed about the oven, however as part of our excellent service you are provided with an in resort contact who are there to assist if needed. Once you had notified our provided contact of the problem it was fixed immediately and available to use again. We are happy that you were able to make use of our BBQ facilities. We do mention the steps in our property description but the majority of our guests don’t find these an issue as they enable such a close proximity to the centre of the Old Town and beach as well as fabulous views of the town and Atlantic Ocean. We absolutely agree that the Portuguese people are extremely friendly we are lucky enough to call many of them our friends now. Thanks again for your review and we hope to welcome you back to our wonderful holiday home again in the near future.

Car: not necessary


The beaches vary from small sheltered coves to broad endless stretches of golden sand, many of Algarves' beaches have been awarded the prestigious blue flag award. Fisherman's beach is a pleasant 3 minute stroll and one of the most famous beaches in the Algarve, here you can relax and unwind in the sun or if you prefer there are plenty of water sports on offer throughout the summer months.


30 minutes drive from Faro airport costing around 30 euro's each way in a taxi.

Car hire is available from the airport but not necessary.


1-2 minutes stroll down to Albufeira square where there are many restaurants offering varied cuisine from traditional Portuguese dishes to international favourites. Around the square you will find many bars to enjoy a holiday drink in and enjoy the free entertainment. Albufeira has a picturesque marina which is a 20 minute walk away or 10 minutes by tourist train. The lively strip of Montechoro is a 5 minute tram ride away.

Further Details:

There are many banks and bureau de change available in the resort centre as well as tourist information and many supermarkets for all your basic essentials. Family fun is offered in nearby water parks and zoo marina which are all a short taxi ride away. Paderne and Alte are traditional inland villages which offer beautiful marked walks which can be easily followed.
