About Lesley

I live in England with my partner. We also have 3 cats. We have been visiting Portugal now for more than 20 years and love everything about it.

Lesley purchased this villa in 2005

Why Lesley chose Algarve

We are both keen golfers and love the variety of golf courses in the Algarve. We love the area and the people and therefore decided to buy a property that was central for everything. 2 kilometres from the beach and old town of Albufeira, 10 minute drive to our favourite golf course, Salgados. 10 to 15 minutes from the night life and a nice peaceful area to unwind and relax.

What makes this villa unique

Over time we have put everything in the house that is essential for people staying either 1 week or 3 months. This is good so guests don't have to over pack their suitcases and worry about the extra weight at the airport. As we like to run the villa as a home you will find some provisions in the cupboards and fridge when you arrive and we just ask guests to replace what they use for the next guests. This way if you have a late flight at least you will be able to make yourself a snack and a drink when you arrive. Many of our bookings are repeat bookings. Some of our guests have been going on a yearly or twice yearly basis since we bought the property. Not only do they come back themselves but also recommend us to their family and friends.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I would like to thank you for a fantastic holiday. Your villa is truly a home from home, a beautiful spacious villa with a great BBQ and pool area. The villa is furnished above and beyond what you would expect of a rental property, to the highest standards.

Great value for money, i will definitely be recommending your villa to my family and friends.

Mr and Mrs Arnold, May 2011

We all had a very enjoyable holiday in your beautiful villa. Our stay was brilliant from the moment we were picked up from the airport until the moment we were dropped back again.

Eion. July 2011

We had a great week, we were a party of 2 couples and 2 singles.

We spent most days lazing around the pool and enjoying a BBQ lunch. The crockery and cutlery and fridge provided in the basement was easy access to the pool area and kept beers on hand!

We had a wonderful time and have already booked again for 2013. This time with our new baby and grandparents.

Lovely property, home from home

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here May for 10 nights with my wife, daughter, son-in-law and 2 grandsons. Everything went really well from organised airport pick up, greeting at the villa and the rest of our stay.

The property is very spacious and equipped with everything you could want, I cannot think of anything that is missing. It is located in a quiet, seemingly mainly residential area, near the bus station. It is out of the centre of Albufeira, took us about 20-30 minutes at a leisurely stroll to get to the old town. We tended to take a taxi back which cost between 4 and 6 euros, including tip, depending on where you caught it.

The boys loved the pool and spent a lot of time in there (a bit cold), we also made good use of the pool table and table tennis table. There is a fridge, cutlery, crockery etc down near the pool so you don't need to bring that downstairs. There is also a cd player and plenty of cd's if you want to listen to a bit of music whilst relaxing around the pool.

The lounge is very comfortable, has TV, DVD player and DVD's.

Kitchen equipped with everything you could want.

Bedrooms spacious with plenty of storage and with 3 bathrooms (1 ensuite) there is no queuing!

I would have no hesitation in staying here again or recommending it to others.

A home away from home

  • 4 of 5

Our entire family enjoyed this villa from top to bottom during a recent stay.

Such a well equipped place, there was nothing we were short of. The playground / cafe was only a short stroll from the villa where the kids played when they weren't making use of the games room or pool. It was an added bonus to have wifi in the villa so we could touch base with family back home. Taxi's were cheap ( approx €3.50-€5 for family of 5) on days when our walking excursions to the old town tourist area were a little too long for small feet to walk back. Overall a most enjoyable experience.

We have just returned from our 10 night stay at this amazing villa I cannot praise how great this villa is, it has everything you need and more. Bedrooms very spacious with built in wardrobes. Three bathrooms one of which is en-suite. From the beginning of our enquiry to the end Lesley was so very helpful, arranging taxi transfers, to Kevin who does a great job advising where everything is. This is the perfect villa for couples and families alike in a great location. Everything the previous review has said is completely true this is the place to stay with everything you need. Well Done Lesley for making our holiday stress free and for being so very helpful

Algarve Villa

  • 5 of 5

Party of three generations of family took advantage of this great villa. The property was well maintained, roomy & very clean, lots of little extras in kitchen and bathrooms. Lesley arranged airport transfers which was brilliant. There was a meet & greet at the villa with Kevin, who was very good in explaining how everything worked. The pool area was exceptional, sun beds, kids floats & toys, table & chairs, parasols & a bbq. Next to the pool was a games room which the kids loved (also let the adults shelter from the hot sun). There is a kids park 2 mins walk away, also a couple of bars & a shop. Local taxi firm (Ana) lives at the back of the villa & is very helpful, (she arranged & took our party to zoo marine water park with a 10% discount). Tip! it's about a mile to the old town & the strip, use Ana's taxi both ways, saves waiting in huge queue's at the taxi ranks. Lesley is very professional & looks after her villa, it's certainly the best villa we have stayed in & would recommend it to young, old, family, or friends. Thanks Sue Jim and family.

lovely villa with everything you could possibly need for a great holiday

  • 5 of 5

The villa is a great size and the pool and surrounding area is a good size we spent quite a few days just lounging by it. There is a fantastic games area that kept the big boys occupied while us ladies soaked up the sun! There is a lovely lady , Ana , in the villa behind that has minibuses that took us into the nearby old town of an evening where there are many fantastic restaurants.It is a lovely villa in a lovely area and we can't wait to book again.
