Overview

About the property

Villa in Vale de Parra / Sao Raphael, Albufeira, Portugal - Can Be Rented As 4 Or 5 Bedroom Villa, Hire Car Not Essential, Sea Views Roof Terrace

Bookings now being taken for Summer 2018

Cantinho Oliveiras, our beautiful holiday home can be rented as a 4 or 5 bedroom villa for up to 10 people. Pool heating to 25 degrees is included in the rental price. The rental prices shown are for 4 bedrooms, and the fifth bedroom costs an extra £150 per week.

Please read our reviews and we invite you to contact us directly for any further information.

Our beautiful high quality property is located in Sesmarias, 3km west of Albufeira, in lovely semi rural countryside, within easy walking distance, only 400 metres, to the beach at Praia do Coelho (Rabbit Beach). The popular beaches of Gale, Sao Rafael, Evaristo, Castelo, and Sao Lourenco,, some of the best beaches in Portugal, are also within 2/3 minutes drive.

For those not familiar with the Algarve or Albufeira, the area to the west of this popular resort is considered the best places to stay by seasoned visitors. You will find at least eight beautiful sandy beaches and coves within just a few minutes of our small selection of villas, most with beach bars and restaurants. There are several well stocked supermarkets and a huge selection of good restaurants to choose from. Although close to the Algarve’s most popular resort Albufeira, we find most of our guests only pay the odd visit into Albufeira, preferring the beauty and peace and quite of the area around our villas, and its fabulous beaches. If you want more information on the area, please contact us.

Within easy walking distance are several restaurants and bars, a small shop for day to day essentials, and a supermarket. There are other larger supermarkets with two minutes drive.

Cantinho das Oliveiras has been beautifully and tastefully decorated, furnished, and fully equipped to the highest standard, and is set within its own very private walled garden with electric controlled gates.

The attractive heated swimming pool is heated to 25 degrees (heating up to 30 degrees is £140 per week), tiled in light grey and white tiles, is 10m x 5m and has just one depth of 1.4m.

The garden is on one level with terraces, lawns and a big covered barbecue and dining area next to the pool and house. The garden will be a major feature of the villa with lots of local stonework and a beautiful running water feature with waterfall down a stone wall in an enclosed grotto.

A bus service into Albufeira, and to Gale beach runs from nearby, making this villa suitable for non-drivers.

The superior accommodation consists of:

Spacious entrance hall leading to the sitting room with two large glass sliding doors overlooking the swimming pool and terrace. There is an attractive wood burning fire behind a lifting glass panel for early and late season use. Flat screen satellite TV with BBC & ITV programmes.

The kitchen is fitted with fabulous gloss black units, a very attractive feature, and has an oven, hob, microwave, dishwasher, large American fridge / freezer, and a hatch to the dining room. The washing machine is outside in the barbecue house.

On the ground floor is Bedroom 1 which is a double bedroom, fitted wardrobes and beautifully tiled en-suite shower room with walk in shower, two basins, WC and bidet.

There is also a guest washroom with WC and basin.

Bedroom 5 is a double bedroom and only used when the villa is rented with 5 bedrooms. It has fitted wardrobes, its own en-suite shower room with WC and basin, and a door to the garden.

From the spacious hall, a very impressive sweeping staircase in polished black stone leads to the other bedrooms on the first floor.

Bedroom 2 has twin beds, small dressing area with fitted wardrobes, a door to its own balcony, and en-suite shower room with WC, bidet and basin.

Bedroom 3 is also a twin bedroom with small dressing area with fitted wardrobes and a door to its own balcony, and en-suite bathroom with bath, WC, bidet and basin..

Bedroom 4 has a double bed, door to its own large balcony, fitted wardrobes, en-suite shower room with WC, bidet and two basins.

All linen and towels are provided. Bed linen is changed once per week and towels changed twice per week. Swimming pool towels are also provided.

Free WiFi internet and maid service 3 days per week (more if you want).

The villa can be rented as a 4 or 5 bedroom villa.

Our family and close friends have owned and rented out our properties in the Algarve for the past 30 years, and we pride ourselves on our small selection of luxury properties that we welcome our guests to. All our 5 properties are featured on Owners Direct under the following property ID's P7363, P7368, P13027, P13028, P11070.

We are retired travel professionals, and the properties we offer are equipped to the highest standards, based on our many years experience in this lovely region of Portugal. We enjoy a 70% repeat bookings which is a fantastic recommendation. Come and see us, you'll love our villas.

Why Andrew Killeen chose Albufeira

This property is new and was completed in May 2012.

We chose the location because of its close proximity to local restaurants and beaches.

What makes this villa unique

You can enjoy walking down to Praia da Coelha, a lovely sandy cove around 10 minutes walk away, where there is a good beach bar / restaurant, and in the evenings you can stroll to several good restaurants within just a few minutes walk. The local bus service from Albufeira to the lovely Gale beach passes close by.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Andrew & Paul,

Just a quick line to thank you and all involved in making our recent stay in your villa a most enjoyable and memorable one. The villa, its location and its specification not only met my expectation but exceeded it. The villa manager was very helpful and informative. The cleaning of both the villa and the pool was excellent and unobtrusive.

Your administration in the booking and the information packs was also excellent.

Whilst we are not planning to holiday in Europe next year I will certainly keep your address and contacts on file for future reference.

Kind regards Ian Dixon



This villa certainly has he WOW factor, we couldn't believe it when we arrived.

The pool and garden were exceptional, and the bathrooms so beautiful.

Thank you for a really great holiday.

The villa is absolutely amazing , one or two tiny hiccups ( safe and oven) which were sorted out promptly due to Antonio and Freshmina ,both fantastic people . The villa, garden and pool were spotless, only comment if any it needs a proper drying line the little drying airer is not adequate for ten people . Plenty resturants close by a fantastic place to holiday thank you .

Top Class Villa

  • 5 of 5

The pictures of this villa do not do it justice. This place is outstanding. We had 5 adults and 5 children and has so much space. We couldn't fault anything. It had everything you could need and more. Beautifully kept garden and bbq area. So safe for children (which was a big thing for us) the housekeeper who was so lovely and arrived second day with fresh towels and gave the house a tidy. The location is just a few minutes drive away from everything yet you still get to enjoy a peaceful rural area. I would highly recommend this place. We will definitely be back next year.

Amazing place

  • 5 of 5

This is now our third time staying in this beautiful villa and we never get tired of coming here. The villa is truly amazing with everything you could possibly need. It is immaculately clean with very well kept gardens. The pool is also fantastic and heated with its own motorised cover to keep the heat in when not in use. The location also is excellent away from the hussle and bussel but close enough to restaurants, bars and beeches. We will definitely be back again in the future as we truly love it here.

Absolutely impressive 5 star villa

  • 5 of 5

The pictures cannot show how perfect this villa was. Ten family members had ample room with each room having it's own en suite. On arrival everywhere was immaculate. The pool, large grounds and BBQ area were well designed and maintained. Everywhere was cleaned to a very high standard on a regular basis. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. In fact we rebooked for next year as soon as we got home.
