Fantastic in every way. Thankyou !!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time in this absolutely beautiful villa.

Thanks to Guy and Catherine but also the pool boy Darren and his wife Sophia. Without your help we would never have found this paradise. There is a story behind all this but Guy was able to communicate from Switzerland, I believe, and Catherine was in Belgium and Darren and Sophia locally. They all helped us well above and beyond the call of duty. We had booked a James Villa elsewhere that turned out to have VERY noisy guests next door. As James Villas were not able to solve the issue, we resorted to trying to find alternate accommodation ourselves. In the space of an evening Guy had organised for the villa to be made ready for us and the pool topped up and ready to go. They really trusted us and we are so thankful.

Sophia apologised for having to rush to get it ready but it was spotless.

I could list thousands of things that I like about the villa but I will just list a few.

The pool is fantastic and necessary to cool off in the 29 degree heat.

Outdoor table and seats to use for alfresco dining.

Barbi was great too (Barbecue that is).

Absolutely beautiful flowers on the surrounding hedges.

Praia da Coelha beach 500m walk has fantastic shells. I have never seen so many.

If you get a chance visit the secret beach which is about 10 mins walk.

Go to the Baia Grande hotel. Turn right and keep walking downhill.

Eventually you will get to the last villa.

Walk down the right side path and follow it for a way.

You will see a myriad of paths but the right pathways take you down to some fairly steep stone steps and down to the hidden beach.

It's almost like a scene from Harry Potter when you look back up.

I won't bore you all with my memories but the only bad thing was.....

We had to come home.


Thanks again Guy, Catherine, Darren (hope your darts went well) and Sophia. Hope to see you again in the future.

Kind Regards

Simon and Family

So good!

  • 5 of 5

The Villa exceeded our expectations. It was very clean, tastefully presented with everything you could want there, and for us, it was the perfect location. Prior to arriving Max was very informative and helpful and both Sofia and Darren were on hand locally to help us with anything we needed so we always felt at looked after.

The Villa is great whether you want to 'chill' by the pool, go to one of the many beaches closeby, cook at 'home' in the evening or go locally to the many restaurants, that is, if you don't fancy going into the 'action area's' of Albufeira town which is 10 minutes away in a taxi.

We used Oceano's supermarket for our food and 'bulk' buys which was much cheaper than Apolonia and still very good quality.

Baia Grande Hotel is a very nice hotel just up the road which is useful for taxi pick ups and is a good place for drink or even a meal.

We ate out locally at Dom Dinis ( 10 mins walk from the Villa) which was really good food but maybe a bit more expensive than others.

O Amigo's was also good but more economical.

We didn't hire a car as we mostly used taxi's or walked but it can be hot and tiring if your not fully fit. The bike was useful to pop up to the mini-market shop.

Great area, great Villa and very well looked after. Thanks to you all! We will be back :-)

family holiday

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons été enchanté par notre séjour dans votre maison qui se trouve dans une rue effectivement très calme .

En ce qui concerne la douche du bas pas de souci et le parasol nous ne l’avons pas utilisé ! Ce qui est plaisant dans votre maison c’est surtout la privacité des chambres, chacun peut avoir son espace personnel Les transats de la piscine sont très confortables! Nous avons également apprécié le nombre de serviettes à notre disposition, les chaises de plages, les parasols…

Le seul petit reproche que j’ai peut être à faire serait sur la quantité de vaisselles ! Nous avons reçu une fois ma famille et n’avions pas assez d’ assiettes ni de couverts ! Dans les maisons que nous louons habituellement nous trouvons toujours un autre service de vaisselle dans la salle à manger avec des verres à digestifs, des chopes ou autres sortes de verres.

Voilà pour conclure nous relouerions très volontiers votre maison si l’occasion se présente !

From the Owner

The villa was purchased by our parents as an ideal house for family holidays with the children and grandchildren. It was not only used during the summer time but also as a second residence each year, from April till October. update February 2013: interior works almost completed. All painting done, 3 new showers and closets installed, roof renewed, all waterpipes new. Kitchen still in process and renovation of pool started.

Activity and Interests

Special interest holidays:

Most local excursions can be booked at Hotel Baia Grande (150m from the house) with departure from the hotel (Zoomarine for the kids, Slide & Splash or similar aquaparks, jeep excursions, catamaran or other boat trips, etc..).


500m walking from Praia da Coelha beach

1.4 km from larger Paia Do Sao Rafael

2km from Praia Evaristo (with famous fish restaurant) and about 3,5m from Praia Gale which is largest beach in the area


Faro Airport is about 40 minutes by car or Taxi. Rental cars available at the airport. Liboa Airport is about 2h40minutes from the Villa and offer more possibilities to book flights. If you take a taxi, ask for Hotel Baia Grande in Albufeira / Sesmarias, which is 150 metres from the Villa and known by all taxi drivers.


8 minutes by car from Albufaira. Other places of interest are Monchique, Loulé, Portimao, Silves. For kids you have nearby Zoomarine and Slide & splash aquapark. House is most suitable for quite holidays. If you look for evening annimation, you should go to the old center of Albufeira or 'The Strip' (3km east of Albufeira) by car, scooter or taxi.

Further Details:

wonderfull house for quite family holidays or to go with couple of friends.

hire of car is recommended if you want more freedom. Rent of Scooter is cheaper and easier to park in July and August. Without car you are limited to few local restaurants, beaches and minimarkets. Hotel nextdoor provides excursion possibilities, easy to book taxi from the Hotel. Busses are available in summer but don't know schedules and routes.
