About the property

Villa in Paderne, Central Algarve, Portugal - Peaceful Village Location Near To Bars And Restaurants

This private luxury Villa has just completed its fifth successful year of summer lets and has recently been acquired by new owners. Under the previous owners it received excellent reviews from its guests. The villa is called Vale Vista and is located in the village of Monte Novo, just outside Paderne in Central Algarve, north of Albufeira. The villa occupies three floors with the uppermost having two bedrooms, a family bathroom a large open space landing and lovely far reaching views to the surrounding area and Monchique hills. The centre floor has the lounge (TV & DVD), dining area, main kitchen and master bedroom with en-suite. The ground floor consists of a very large garden room, an open plan kitchen and leads out to the shaded outside dining area, barbecue, garden, pool and sun bathing areas. This is the perfect area for alfresco lunches and dining on warm balmy evenings. Free Wi-Fi internet access is available. The village of Paderne is a 10 minute walk away with authentic Portuguese restaurants and bars and the beautiful coast, beaches, lively nightlife and fantastic golf courses are only a 20 minute drive away. Inland, a short drive away is the beautiful village of Alte and slightly further afield the medieval town of Silves. Both worthy of a visit.

About William Gilbert

Sonia and I bought our beautiful villa in Portugal after holidaying for 5 years in the lovely area of Paderne and deciding ‘this is for us’. We had been looking to buy a villa for 3 years and eventually – this was the one! We love the Algarve, the warm weather, the walking, the beaches, the golf, the food and the friendliness and hospitality of the people we have met in the area and eventually intend to make our move permanent.

William Gilbert purchased this villa in 2014

Why William Gilbert chose Albufeira

Our home in the Algarve is on the outskirts of Paderne in a quiet, beautiful area with cafes and restaurants and is ideally suited for easy travel to the beaches etc.

We are not yet in a position to relocate to Paderne so we have decided to make our home available for others to enjoy.

The previous owners have been renting the villa for 5 years and we intend to continue with, and build upon the excellent reputation they have established. The reviews the villa received under them were all ‘excellent’ – 5 out of 5.

What makes this villa unique

The villa is very private, but not isolated. Close enough to the main attractions the region has to offer, but far enough to be able to return for rest and quiet.

Should you decide to stay at Vale Vista we are confident you will not be disappointed and we know you will have a super luxurious holiday.

Kind Regards

Sonia and William Gilbert

Guestbook comments from the owner

I would just like to say how impressed and happy we were with your brilliant villa and its location. We now feel that we have been spoilt for all other holidays. We really felt that you had put a lot of thought and effort into making the villa a lovely and relaxing holiday with it being very well equipped and our every need catered for. Paderne gave us a real taste of Portugal with some fantastic restaurants and it was not to far from the main holiday resorts.

many thanks for a great holiday.

The Wall party August

Just wanted to let you know we have all had a fantastic holiday. The villa was even nicer than it looked on the website and everything you could ever need was available. I would definitely recommend it to friends and would definitely book again.

Car: recommended


The beautiful golden sandy beaches and coastline are only a short 20 minute drive away. From Fisherman’s Beach in Albufeira, to the beautiful coves at Gale or the long stretches of sandy beaches to the east of Albufeira including Praia da Oura and Praia da Falesia. Most of the beaches have bars/restaurants and toilets and showers. Parking is available at or near many of the beaches and there are plenty of beach activities. Most beaches are easily accessible.


The nearest airport is Faro which is about a 35 minute drive away. To get the best from your holiday we strongly recommend a hire car. The villa is in the Central Algarve and an easy hours drive to the East and West Coasts. Lisbon is 3 hrs by car, 2 hrs by train from local station at Tunes. The Spanish border is 1 hours drive and Seville 2.5 hours. There is a daily bus service from Paderne to Albufeira and also taxi services.


Paderne village centre is a 10 minute walk/3 minute drive from the villa where there are events occurring throughout the summer. Albufeira and Villamoura are a 20 - 25 minute drive away. The medieval town of Silves is a 40 minute drive. The beautiful village of Alte is a 20 minute drive. and the 12th century Paderne Castle is a short drive or, for the more energetic, a 45 minute (approx.) walk.

Further Details:

Our villa is managed by Jennie and Harry, a local English couple, who will greet you on your arrival. They will explain the services they provide and give you a tour of your villa. They will answer any queries or questions you may have and will be contactable for the duration of your stay. A welcome pack will ensure some refreshment after your journey. Folders and brochures of local attractions etc. will be available to you.

Fantastic Villa

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time here and it was just as fantastic as we remembered! The villa is spacious and immaculately clean! It has everything we needed, the kids loved the pool and the cool basement area! We loved the variety of outdoor spaces to enjoy the wonderful weather and the large BBQ is ideal. This villa offers the best of 'both worlds'. You are close to beaches, towns and lots of beautiful places to visit. You can also stay in the peace and quiet of the villa or wander into the traditional town of Paderne with a number of great places to eat.

The owners and managers were wonderful to deal with and very helpful. Can't recommend this holiday enough!!!

Had a fantastic time staying at this lovely villa. The villa was so clean and spacious and had everything you would need for a relaxing stay and lots of fresh lemons off the tree for your vodka!. Got home and booked again for next year.

Wonderful Villa & an Excellent Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We hired Vale Vista to celebrate our son's 30th Birthday so we wanted something special and we were not disappointed. The villa was beautiful and there was so much space for us all (we were 6 adults). The villa & the swimming pool was immaculate in every way. It was very clean & well maintained. The listing description regarding the location, layout & facilities were accurate. It was equipped with everything you would require in a holiday home. The owner & manager both provided great service. We shall be highly recommending it to our friends & family.

We had a great holiday. The villa was brilliant, just as we remembered it. It has a fantastic homely feel unlike any other we have stayed in. The local village is quiet, relaxing and very friendly yet within easy reach of everything the Algarve has to offer

The villa is fab. Great space, with fantastic rooms. Very well equipped, everything you need. Spotlessly clean.

Pool area and barbecue were fantastic, kids never left the pool. The balcony was great for breakfast.

Really enjoyed our stay, good location, close to beautiful beaches and all of the attractions the Algarve has to offer.

Highly recommended for a great holiday.
