About the Owner

We having been coming to the Algarve for many years to my parents Villa in a small village about 20 mins from the coast. We love the area as it has so many contrasts. We decided we would like our own place near the coast. We chose Albufeira because we feel it has everything. There are secluded Beautiful beaches and the walking is superb. But we also like a bit of night life and its here if you want it. We also like to try local bars and restaurants which are usually very good and cheap. We love our holiday home because it is so peaceful, Its like an oasis. The old town is charming and a real treat to walk around the cool narrow streets when its hot. We come all year round and we love it. We hope you will too.

Fantastic break

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at the spotless cottage in the afternoon and were greeted by Colin and Maria who had provided a welcome pack of those essentials you need to get started Thank You .

The cottage is very tastefully decorated with two bedrooms and two bathrooms.

A fully functional kitchen with everything you need for a family holiday from a full cooker and washing machine right down to a lemon zester..

The pool was of a very good size for a family of four and the view was to die for.

Bedrooms were well decorated and very user friendly, with enough storage space for a month.

The only down side i would say is the tv is very intermittent as it through wifi and as my partner is 6ft 2 a bed without ends would have been preferable, having said that we have booked another two week stay next year as we had such a wonderful time.

Very near all the attractions and restaurants but far enough away not to be involved if you dont want to be.

I would highly recommend this property to anyone*****

Peaceful and beautifully presented

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is really lovely. Off the beaten track in a quiet location with plenty of towns and beaches within a 10 minute drive. Ideal for a family with children or if you just want to chill out. Beautifully kept with everything you could possibly need - particularly liked the welcome pack, a nice touch. Owners very helpful whilst giving you plenty of space. Would be keen to visit again.

Modern Spacious accommodation

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is a really pleasant place to stay. We stayed for two weeks. It's very spacious and modern, and well equipped. It's in a really peaceful location, but only a short drive from lots of amenities. It was very clean and tidy. We have a two year old and found the cottage to be fine for a toddler.

The owners Colin and Maria are very friendly and provided lots of good advice.
