The house was completely refurbished to a high standard, but the typical Algarvian style, with ornaments at the front, wooden shutters and doors, were preserved. The centre is a patio with dining table and shower, from where a staircase leads to a large roof terrace with pool and pergola, affording magnificent sea views.

Fantastic location, fabulous view

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location, everything we needed! The view from the roof terrace is fantastic. Wifi in villa was an added bonus! Few minutes walk from the escalator to old town or mini train to new town. Pool was clean and air con was lovely and cool in the roasting heat. Nice size fridge freezer for chilled wine and beers! Nice and quiet too as on a private road. We travelled as 3 couples and would definitely return to thus villa

This is everything that it appears to be! Amazing location, literally overlooking the beach & so close to the old town. Very peaceful and views are outstanding. It is very well equipped with everything you could ever need which was fantastic with 3 young children. Very clean and the cleaning staff were very friendly! Pool was too cold for this time of year but terrace was ideal for enjoying the sun & dining. Would have no hesitation recommending this property!

lovely house with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

5 of us stayed here and I have to say after looking at most of the aparmtents/villas in Portugal this had the best view

It was only a 5 minute walk into the old town where there are some lovely bars and places to eat

The roof terrace was great for sun bathing as you always had the sea breeze and it was nice to dip in the pool if wanted to cool down

This has to be the best holiday I have been on in 5 years

Great place

This house was absolutely perfect for our stay.

The house itself is exactly as in the photographs so I don't need to go into that. However, what is not apparent in the photographs is the proximity to Albufeira old town. It was a maximum 5 minute walk.

The agent was a pleasure to deal with and as we arranged our transfers through them as well the check in and check out process was hassle free. The driver had our keys and welcome pack and dropped us off at the door. They also provided our return transfer and were spot on time.

The only reservation I have about writing this review is that it may be fully booked when we wish to return.

Simply perfect

  • 5 of 5

We (5 guys between 30 and 35) researched as much as possible before booking this house but when we arrived our expectations were surpassed.

You have a beautiful view over the atlantic. The location is very quiet, maybe 1 car every 30 minutes. The waves and sea gulls are the only thing you hear most of the time :)

The kitchen (and the house altogether) is very well equiped. All german tv-stations were available via satellite (very good if you want to see FC Chelsea : Bayern Munich Champions League final - Albufeira is mostly in the hands of british citizens).

All rooms had air conditioning. Only the air conditioner in the "suite" bedroom was defect but we could live with that.

The pool was a little small but we did not care. You can reach the beach in less than a minute!

We all agreed to come again. Even several taxi drivers said this house is in one of the best locations in Albufeira. Definite 5 stars.

Beira Mar Villa

  • 5 of 5

First rate property, discription of the Villa was accurate with modern fitting and fixtures. Location to Town was les than 6min away walking.

The only down side was the small pool needed to be made more secure for the safety of small children and better arangement made for collection of the key from the Villa agents .

Would book this Villa again
