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.

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.

"Lovely Villa"

  • 5 of 5

We had a great holiday in this well maintained and very well equipped villa. It was lovely to be able to relax by the private pool and we all had lots of fun in the games room. The Bus Station is at the end of the road and the villa is well situated with supermarkets and the Old Town nearby. Lesley the owner was very helpful throughout. We intend to return in the future.

Fabulous Villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week staying at this villa, everything (and more) that you could ask for in a villa. Exceptionally comfortable and clean.

Zoomarine is well worth a visit, we bought discount vouchers from a booth in the new town area.

A visit to Albufeira marina for a meal out is worthwhile, not as busy and the old and new town with a couple of nice restaurants.

Also loved the fact that parking is free everywhere.

Would love to come back to this villa and would have no hesitation in recommending it.

Fantastic Vila

  • 5 of 5

If your looking for a Vila in Albuferia that has everything and is close to everything,then stop now and book this Vila. It has everything you could possibly need for a holiday. Even has a games room with is brilliant. The whole Vila is spotless as well. A group of us 6 adults and one child booked this Vila back in January for May and from the first contact to Lesley ,she was great to deal with and always there if you need any questions or information. When we arrived at the Vila we were met by Kevin, he looks after the Vila out there. He's a lovely fella and was shown around the Vila.very helpful. Lesley know someone that does transfers from the airport as well which is a great extra. Ana is her name and is great and friendly. She runs a mini bus service and lives right behind this Vila. So overall stop thinking about it and book this Vila now. You won't be disappointed. We will be returning again in the future and looking forward to it. :)

From the Owner

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.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Faro at 40 Kilometres Nearest Golf : Balia 9 hole course at 10 Kilometres Nearest Beach : Fishermans Beach at 2 Kilometres Car: not necessary


Albufeira sandy beach stretches for miles and is approximately a 20 minute walk away or the main bus terminal is at the end of the road where you can board a free bus shuttle to/from the town. Excursion buses to the Zoo Marine, Slide and Splash and other tourist attractions also go from the bus terminal. The town itself has many shops and restaurants.


Faro airport is a 40 minute drive away. You can either hire a car at the airport, get a shuttle bus to the resort or a reliable and friendly taxi service can be arranged. The charge for the taxi service is 70 Euros 1 to 4 people and 90 Euros 5 to 8 people, return. Car hire is not necessary as all amenities are within walking distance of the villa.


Supermarkets, bar, cafes, gift shops are all within walking distance of the villa. The "strip" is a 20 minute walk away where you will find many choices of restaurants, bars and night life. There are a couple of Portuguese cafes very near to the villa that serve excellent food.

Further Details:

Close to the villa is a park with swings, climbing frames and slides for the youngsters. Zoomarine is a must for young and old alike. The main attraction is the dolphin show. You can even arrange to swim with them. Slide and Splash is also a good day out for the children. There are numerous supermarkets in the area for the essential beers and wine. Near to the villa is a fresh fish and vegetable market and a butchers for the food for cooking on the BBQ. The town of Albufeira is a busy thriving town with plenty of good restaurants and cafes. The Portuguese people are friendly and make you very welcome. There are numerous gift shops dotted around the town selling local pottery. The marinas of Albufeira and Vilamoura are not far away where you can go on a boat trip to see the dolphins out at sea and the caves along the shore line. The gypsy market is next to the Albufeira bus station and is on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of every month. The Spanish border is an hours motorway drive away. To the West a coastal drive to Sagres, is a fine days trip and Cape St Vincent is very similar to Cornwall.

From the Owner

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.
