Perfect Holiday Villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week as a group of 8 friends and it was absolutely perfect. Only a short walk to the strip (make sure you visit Filipa's restaurant for a burger and a cocktail!) and to the closest supermarket. The villa itself is very spacious, clean, and has everything you could ask for with a large pool which gets the sun most of the day and a big games room. Filipa was also always on hand to answer any queries and was a great help in organising airport taxi's etc. Would definitely visit again.

Great pool and owner

  • 4 of 5

Lovely spacious property. Filipa the owner couldn't have been more helpful. The only negative thing was that the showering facilities could do with bringing up to date. Very handy location,approximately 10 minutes to the strip.

Amazing holiday in this beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

I have nothing negative to say about our stay in this villa. What I did notice was that the property is much more beautiful in real life than on the pictures. The pool was the best and the barbecue with a nice sitting area beneath a lemon tree made our dinners very special. Filipa is such a kind woman, she would be only one phone call away whenever a small problem or question would come op. If you are looking for a nice villa to stay in in Albufeira, which is only a 10 mins walk away from the strip, yet in a very calm area, this really is the place. My friends and I loved our stay here and if we ever were to return to Albufeira, Filipa will be the first to hear!

Spacious and neat vila in at a nice location

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week at the vila with our friends.

The vila is very spacious, has a very clean swimming pool, and big bedrooms and bathrooms. Also the basement offers some great entertainment with a ping-pong table and a pool table. We enjoyed our stay and couldn't wish for a better vila.

Everything we needed was available in this more traditional villa. Filipa was on hand to help with any queries and was always cheerful and professional. Excellent location - only a few minutes walk to good bars and restaurants and The Strip. On the one or two days when we had indifferent weather the games room was a welcome diversion.

Excellent villa for the perfect holiday

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in this villa for one week in mid August with 7 other friends who are all in their mid 20s. When we arrived we were greeted by the wonderful Filipa who showed us around the villa. The villa itself was fantastic, all the rooms were large and spacious with everything you could need. Outside.. well what can i say? A large clean swimming pool with deck chairs and tables wrapped around, not to forget the bbq area under a lovely lemon tree... It was heaven! Downstairs in the basement was a full size pool table and table tennis table which was a real bonus. As for location... the property is situated in a lovely area not to far from the main strip. The nearest mini market and bar was less than 5 mins stroll (I would recommend "the New Dubliner" for a breakfast one morning). As for the strip, it takes about 10mins slow walk to reach the top of it which was fine by us. I would highly recommend groups of all ages to stay here as im positive you wont be disappointed. Im sure i will be back to stay again in the near future!!
