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.

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

We had a weeks holiday here at the start of April 2016, with our two children aged 2 & 5. The villa was perfect for us, two bed, large living room and kitchen private parking and ideal garden with pool. We had the pool heated for the week as it was only April and it allowed the kids and us to be in the pool everyday including the one day of rain that we had, that was well worth the extra.

The kitchen was extremely well stocked with utensils, glasses, plates, washing machine and dishwasher which was great for us as we had at least lunch or dinner there each day. We enjoyed the charcoal bbq two days for cooking.

The villa having wi-if and a good selection of movies on the to box was good as it kept everyone entertained at night or kids in the mornings!

It was well stocked with two travel cots (x2) and plenty of extra pillows and blankets which were handy in evenings when temps dropped.

The garden dinning table and other seating area options outside was good and gave us different options depending on where the sun was shining!

Villa was all very clean and well prepared for our visit, it matched up to the description given online. The owner communication was very good and they answered any questions I had very quickly.

Perhaps a better villa pack / folder would be a good idea with all villa info such as where fuse box is, and any general villa instructions operation manuals. The info was there but in 2-3 different places.

We would recommend this to anyone looking for a 2 bed villa with private pool for holidays, it has good links to the motorway but also albuferia and gale for lots of restaurants/beaches/and night life if you want that.

Owner's Response: Thanks Neil for the excellent review. I'm glad you took advantage of the heated pool,a welcome addition during the start & end of the season.The grass area provides a cooler outdoor space than the terrace area. The Villa's location is ideal to explore all the Algarve has to offer. We are in the process of updating the info pack & thanks for your comments. Kind regards Laurence.

First class villa in Guia

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this villa for 10 nights and it had everything we needed. The pool was lovely and warm, the wifi worked and we had English TV and a DVD player to keep us amused in the evenings after eating out. The restaurants were good with piri piri chicken a speciality. Beware, it's really hot!

The villa was clean and well stocked and the BBQ was a definite plus. It was lovely to have the lawn area as well by the pool. The owner and manager on site were very efficient at answering any questions we had.

We hired a car and visited Albufeira and Villamoura marinas and Slide and Splash water park. Just be aware that in the height of summer the queues for the water rides are huge!

Overall, we loved our stay. It was relaxing while being central enough to get out and about. We would definitely recommend this villa and would happily book again ourselves.
