If ever there was a perfectly located, low budget holiday villa, it's Villa Ana.

It's easy for me to say, because myself & my wife, had the pleasure of staying at Villa Ana for two glorious weeks!
Which I still have very fond memories.
Everything about the villa is perfect, the sunny location, lovely all round surroundings, vast amounts of green areas, low rise buildings, fabulous daily walks, Cliff Richard's nearby vineyards, the Friday market, the daily fresh food & fish market, visits to the local butcher, restaurants and cafes, all from only 500 metres away, an easy 5-10 minutes walk.
Villa Ana is perfectly located in a dead end street in the sought after, quality resort of Quinta dos Alamos.
We are very fortunate to rent Villa Ana, because, for many years this was one of Thomson Holidays (Tui) favourite villa, which was always booked. But now, we rent it exclusively! And at much lower prices.
The villa has 3 well appointed bedrooms with 3 bathrooms (2 of bedrooms facing the cold north, ideal for the hot summer weather between April & October, each of these bedrooms have its own balcony, overlooking the large garden & lawn), the other bedroom overlooks the pool with double doors to pool & terrace.
