Why laurence ball chose Albufeira

The Villa is in an established housing cluster, a short walk to Guia Village for restaurants, Bars & Shops.

Gale beach & St Laurenco are about 15 minutes by car,some great sea view restaurants to pass many enjoyable hours, even in the winter.

What makes this villa unique

The main reason we love this Villa it's ideal for a couple & completely private, not being overlooked was a priority in this search. It has a traditional character & a garden.

It stays cooler in summer & it has a fire for the winter.

The pool heats up quickly naturally & the pool heating extends the usable period so much.

Beautiful villa for the perfect get away.

  • 5 of 5

Arrived at this beautiful villa to find it as perfect as the photo's.

Extremely comfortable, with everything one requires for the perfect holiday.

Kitchen very well stocked for anyone wishing to self cater.

We were a party of two couples who enjoyed the very pleasant 7-10 minute stroll down to the villa of Guia with its selection of restaurants & 2 reasonably well stocked supermarkets. Visited larger supermarket at the shopping centre for 1st shop to buy larger bulk items for our 2 week stay.

We did not hire a car and found the local taxis reasonable & very reliable for the few occasions we ventured out from Guia. We pre ordered a return airport taxi which made the 35 - 40 min journey hassle free.

Would highly recommend this ideal 2 bedroom villa for those seeking the ideal get away in a quiet & peaceful location. If you want crowds, busy restaurants/ bars & shops Albuferia is only about 15 mins car journey away.

Only just returned home & missing the glorious weather & the tranquility of this perfect villa.

Wonderful villa

  • 5 of 5

We spent two weeks at this property and loved it. Lovely spacious rooms, well equipped kitchen, pretty garden and great pool. It is extremely well equipped and the layout worked really well for us as a family of 4. All on one level and you can see the pool from the kitchen and living room so it was easy to keep an eye on the kids who were never out the pool! Guia has a few good restaurants and shops but I would recommend hiring a car so that you can explore further. I would also recommend having the pool heated. We went in July but the heated pool meant our girls could play in it all day and sometimes at night. The villa was cleaned regularly. Laurence the owner is extremely pleasant to deal with and answered all my queries quickly. I would highly recommend this villa.

Super villa in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Arrived at the villa at 11.30pm and everything was in place ready for our arrival.

Marion and Laurence went out of their way to make sure everything was in place to make sure we had a lovely stay in the villa.

The villa was spotlessly clean and equipped with everthing you could possibly need for a great holiday.

The village centre is just a few minutes walk away with many shops and restaurants. About a 10 minute drive away is the Algarve shopping centre with a huge supermarket and lots of other shops.

It was very hot while we were there but there are areas where you can lounge out of the sun if you wish.

Of course the swimming pool is an added bonus and we thoroughly enjoyed using it.

I would recommend hiring a car to give you freedom to venture further afield.

All in all we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend it.

Kind regards Laurence Ball.

IT TICKS ALL THE BOXES

  • 5 of 5

Having stayed in many villas over the years, this property surpasses them all. From the very helpful owners to the maintenance staff, each went out of their way to make sure our holiday was excellent. The villa has everything needed to ensure you have a relaxing holiday. The villa is set in a quiet residential area and there are plenty of local restaurants and bars and if you wish Albufeira is only 10 - 15 minutes away with beautiful beaches in abundance. I would recommend a trip to Lagos - especially the marina - a shopper's heaven. Looking forward to our third visit in September.

Owner's Response: Hi Margaret Thanks for your return visit comments.As you say the Villa strikes a perfect balance of convenience & a quiet location. The Algarve Shopping Centre is another shoppers heaven,a 5 minute drive or 15 minute walk. I hope you continue to return to Casa Do Sonho. Kind regards Laurence Ball.

Repeat visit to lovely villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this villa last summer and it was so lovely that we came back again this year. There have been some improvements such as new windows and blinds that kept out the morning sun from the bedroom. The owner and the agent were particularly helpful and always on hand for assistance when required. The villa is always kept clean and tidy and the outside space with the pool and garden are fabulous. It was particularly hot when we were there so the air-con was a god send. We would recommend this villa highly if you want a relaxing time in the sun in a central location where it is easy to drive out in the evening to visit other places and restaurants. We would happily go back for a third occasion!

Everything you need for a perfect holiday

  • 5 of 5

We came with our 8 month old and had a great time in the villa. A very peaceful location. Lots of space in the garden to sit in the sun or shade. Heated pool was needed and much enjoyed. Kitchen had everything you could need. Lounge comfortable with British tv. Easy to walk to local village with a good array of restaurants. Owner very helpful. Highly recommend
