About Brian Anderson

I am now retired after working abroad or offshore my entire working life.My wife and I have travelled extensively over the years visiting some beautiful exotic places, always on the look out for a second retirement home.The more we travelled we never found the complete package until a first holiday to the Algarve last year, where we discovered Villa Sharba, which ticked all our boxes, fell in love with it and the location and finally found our `Place in the Sun`.We look on it as our second home, for us our family and grandchildren

Brian Anderson purchased this villa in 2014

Why Brian Anderson chose Laranjeira

Our villa is a short walk to Santa Barbara de Nexe, a small village, the people are extremely friendly and helpful,there are lots of local amenities,nice cafe bars and restaurants,doctors, pharmacy, supermarket and bank.We are central for Faro airport and beaches, town centre, large shopping mall and supermarkets.Short 15/20 min drive takes you Loule,Almancil, Albufeira, Quateria all lovely places to visit. Longer drives takes you to Portimao,Lagos and further along to the Western Algarve. So we are central without being in any built up crowded area. We have peace and quiet when we want and thoroughly enjoy sitting around the pool or pottering about in the large garden

What makes this villa unique

The villa is South situated, as such we have sunshine all day long and well into the evening, the mature garden and large trees give us a choice of shade,if the sun becomes to much,the evening sun sets are beautiful and we thoroughly enjoy them over a glass of wine in the evening before flashing the barbecue up. We upgraded the pool with a heater and retiled and is one of our main pleasures,sitting on the patio after a swim chilling out and relaxing.

There are beautiful mountain drive and country walks,the Ria Formosa Natural park is right on our doorstep and is a great days sailing.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Truly relaxing time spent at your gorgeous villa.Due to time of year we enjoyed a perfect mix of warm days either by the pool or exploring the Algarve and cosy evenings tucked up on the sofa watching tv. Ventured out to a few local restaurants on a few evenings to.

Alison (local agent) superb to. Many thanks

Fantastic stay

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from a magical two weeks at Villa Sharba. Everything was there to make our stay comfortable. Prior to the holiday all my correspondence with the owners was answered promptly and professionally. Alison was brilliant whilst we were there. There is so much room in the grounds and the hammock is wonderful. The air conditioning units are excellent and cooled the bedrooms down very quickly. The Estádio Algarve is about 15 mins walk away (less than 5 mins drive) and we were lucky enough to watch Benfica play Real Betis in a pre season friendly. We chose not to hire a car and managed to walk into the village itself if we needed anything, or to the bakery, or one of the two restaurants nearby. We used a mixture of local taxis or Uber if we wanted to go any sort of distance. Would definitely visit Villa Sharba again.

Lovely villa with great outside space.

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful outside space. The outdoor kitchen will be brilliant when it's finished. Would have preferred to have king sized beds in the hot weather.

Slight negative would be the road noise.

Perfect Home - Perfect Holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a 12 night stay at Villa Sharba and was very very sad to leave!

The Villa was absolutely perfect and everything needed for a wonderful holiday.

The Villa is very comfortable with a fabulous pool and basically faultless.

Communication from initial enquiry to beyond our return was also faultless.

The local village (walking distance) has adequate shops, cafe's and bars if you didn't want to venture too far.

We have stayed at many villas in the Algarve and this is one that we would love to return to .

Thank-you for sharing your beautiful home with us.

Paradise regained!

  • 5 of 5

We returned to Villa Garbe this year and it was the same fantastic experience as last year. Beautiful weather, fantastic location (Santa Barbara De Nexe is a true Algarvian gem of a village), and a Villa that ticks all the boxes including a beautiful pool. Now our favourite destination and we will return as soon as we can.

Villa Sharba

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely weeks holiday at Villa Sharba. Having stayed in the Algarve last year we were able to visit places we didn't get to last year and Santa Barbara de Nexe is an ideal location to do this. We had mornings out and it was lovely to be able to come home to the swimming pool. We had breakfast outside every morning and a barbeque a couple of evenings. The restaurant up the road O'Algados serves lovely food and the staff are extremely friendly we went there twice. The wifi, xbox and TV are also an added bonus all worked superbly. We all loved our day out to Slide and Splash. We visited Spain for lunch on our last day the ferry crossing is relatively cheap. A car is very much needed and the football stadium and IKEA are good landmarks when travelling along the A22!

Alison was very helpful and correspondence I had with Sonia prior to the holiday was answered swiftly. In all a lovely week spent in the Algarve at Villa Sharba. Don't think about it just book it - you won't regret it!!

Beautiful villa with wonderful gardens, in a peaceful location.

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from our second holiday, staying in Villa Sharba. As last time, everything was perfect from the moment we arrived, with a very nice welcome pack waiting for us, which allowed us to make lunch before the first supermarket visit.

Villa Sharba is in an ideal location, just 10 minutes drive from the airport and is located just a couple of minutes drive from the centre of Santa Barbara De Nexe. There are two restaurants very nearby, which was walkable with us with the youngest child.

The gardens of the villa give it the wow factor, as the pool is a great size and has a thermal cover. The additions of the new rattan patio furniture and large 'L' shaped outdoor seating is great. The hammock is a favourite with the children, who would sometimes have an afternoon snooze in the shade in there!

The large gardens are not overlooked by any other houses at all and completely enclosed, so we felt safer with the children wandering around. We just had to keep an eye on the youngest around the new pond, as she loved watching the fish!

Inside the villa, there was an X Box, with games, or to watch a DVD on, but there is now a new TV box, with lots and lots of British channels (much more than we've seen anywhere else!) This was a hit with the children in the evening, or whenever they wanted to get out of the sun for a while.

Alison is lovely and as usual was there at the end of the phone, for any help that we needed.

We loved our second stay here and hope to return again next year!
