About Ana

Our holidays in the Algarve have always been great, with wonderful beaches, good climate and excellent food. That is why we bought our holiday home here and continue to keep coming back. We have equipped the house well and hope that you will enjoy it as much as we do.

Ana purchased this villa in 1990

Why Ana chose Algarve

Quinta da Balaia development has always been known for its excellence and discreet style. We have a large family with varying age groups and we found that the teenagers loved it for being close to things they like to do. Whilst we older ones loved it for the freedom of the pool and garden space - to just chill after the hustle and bustle of our city lives. Being so close to the facilities ... minimarket, tennis, golf, restaurants and cafés meant that it ticked all the boxes and continues to do so.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Mr N G May 2013 The villa was superb and we could not have asked for more, when I come back to the Algarve, I will certainly stay there again.

Special interest holidays:

The tennis club at Quinta da Balaia is an active club with many members and welcomes visitors for games.


The nearest beach is the beautiful Stª Eulalia beach, where there is a great beach bar and plentiful parking. It is under 2kms to this beach. Nearby there is also the pretty village of Olhos D'Agua with a lovely beach, great restaurants and good beach bar.


The nearest airport is Faro and is approx 38 kms. Whilst it is useful to have a hire car whilst staying at Quinta da Balaia, it is certainly not essential, as the local bus service stops 500 metres from the Quinta and it is only 1 km to the nearest areas for restaurants and cafés as well as to the popular area of "The Strip".


Albufeira is 2 kms

Sta Eulalia beach is 1.8 kms

Olhos d'agua is 4 kms

Zoomarine park and water slide parks are in easy reach -pick ups are available near by.

Dolphin trips are available from Albufeira Marina - just 7 kms away.

Further Details:

Nearby on the way to Olhos D'Agua is a well stocked Intermarché Supermarket, local fruit and vegetable market (open most week days) a wide range of restaurants and cafés, bank and general shops. It is possible to do a cliff top walk from Stª Eulalia beach to Olhos D'Agua - stopping for refreshment at Maria Luisa beach on the way. Walking in the other direction -the popular area of the "strip" is reached within 15 minutes. There you will find an abundance of restaurants, bars, cafés, clubs etc.

Ideal villa for a family holiday

  • 5 of 5

Our family group of 6 adults, 2 teenagers and toddler thoroughly enjoyed our week's stay, and wished we could have stayed longer. Although a little dated, the villa was spotlessly clean, well-maintained, well-laid out and well-equipped. The outdoor areas and pool absolutely made the holiday for us. There were a couple of things we needed sorted out when we arrived, some lightbulbs weren't working, and the table tennis bats and balls were past their best. Linda, the villa manager was extremely helpful and sorted everything out really quickly. She also gave us lots of useful advice, which we really appreciated.

Perfect for Us

  • 5 of 5

After the end of our exams 9 of us (all girls) stayed here to enjoy being finished school.

We have to say that this house was amazing. Plenty of space, great facilities and overall a gorgeous house. It can get quite hot inside as there are only fans, no air conditioning but dipping in the large pool can help with that.

Located in a lovely quiet area but still close to the busy town, only a 15 minute walk for us to the strip which is filled with restaurants, shops and bars.

We loved our experience here and would definitely choose it again.

Great house

  • 4 of 5

We have had a great week, at the house in Quinta da Balaia. We where with a group of 8 adults and 4 childeren(2 till 4 yrs).

Plenty rooms and beds and de garden/space around the house, was great for the kids. Only the pool wasn't child friendly. They could only stay by te stairs.
