About Paul & Hayley Bridgeman

Paul & Hayley Bridgeman who live in Ewell, Surrey with their two daughters Louise & Ella.

Paul & Hayley Bridgeman purchased this villa in 2012

Why Paul & Hayley Bridgeman chose Albufeira

We have holidayed in this area of Portugal for many years as we like the area which is a quieter more natural part of Portugal with great beaches, golf courses and restaurants. Hayley stayed at the Quinta as a teenager and we also returned for other holidays as a couple and with the wider family. The Quinta is a great place to escape the crowds and is suitable for families and couples as well as a base for a golfing break.

What makes this villa unique

The Quinta offers much more than a normal villa rental such as the children's play area, tennis court, horse riding, onsite restaurant and pool bar during main season. You can either choose to use these facilities or just relax and keep yourself to yourself. Based on our experiences of renting villas in Portugal we hope to offer everything you need for a comfortable and enjoyable holiday.

We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

A perfect short break in the sun

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely place the Quinta is, and the villa we stayed in ensured our stay was comfortable,relaxing and very enjoyable. The villa is well equipped and with a log burner and oil radiators and warm air con it was very toasty at night. With day temperatures around 18C we enjoyed lunch on the sunny terrace overlooking the national park and the distant sea. We were also lucky to sample the Quinta's own restaurant where we had a very good and varied meal with a couple of jugs of sangria to help it along. All in all a very good break in a wonderful setting staying in a very nice villa. The perfect place to relax and recharge the batteries.

Thoroughly recommend this villa. Very clean, well furnished, spacious. Very short walk to the top pool where there were plenty of sun loungers and sun shades. Short walk to the lower pool suitable for children. Short drive to the local beach or you could walk it in about 30 minutes at a brisk walk. Supermarkets within a short drive.

We are a family with 2 children aged 6 and 2 and stayed here for 2 weeks. The villa is well laid out and very well equipped with some lovely homely touches. The terraces are a perfect space to relax while the little ones play and the tv makes relaxing very easy. The pools and playground are fantastic for the little ones and were never busy out of school holidays - no fighting for sun loungers! The Quinta is a very peaceful, relaxing, away from it all resort but close enough to drive to water parks, beaches, shops, bars and restaurants. We'll definitely be back.
