We were extremely happy with this villa which was very clean and perfectly suited to our needs.We had an amazing holiday; we cannot fault our stay at all. Welcome pack was waiting for us,it was great thank you Anabela and all staff. Villa was well equipped it's like a home from home, lovely swimming pool and games room downstairs, excellent. Great location villa was around the corner from Lidl and Aldi, and only a short walk into the old town.

We had no problems at all with our stay ,Anabela was so helpful and it was great to meet her.Thank you Anabela and all staff . Looking forward to returning in the near future and would highly recommend Villa Palma to anyone.

Thank you for a great two weeks holiday, hope to see you in the near future.

Villa within walking distance of Old & New towns

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic from start to finish!

This is the first time we have booked all elements of our holiday seperatly & we won't hesitate to do it again. This was largely due to the help of Anabella.

I was unsure about arranging transfers, which Anabella arranged for us. She was also very helpful in offering directions and information on the local area.

When we arrived at the villa we saw a fantastic welcome pack. I knew from previous reveiws that there was a welcome pack, but it was far better than we had was actually a useful welcome pack!

The villa itself is approx 40mins from Faro airport. It is very well maintained and spotlessly clean. Situated approx 15 min walk from the Old town and 15-20min walk from the New Town (The strip) it is ideally situated to experience the best of Albuferia.

Warning..... the old town is very hilly to get to and may not suit people with mobility issues.

There is also a Lidl and an Aldi within 5-10 min walk from the villa.

We personally prefered the Old Town with its wide range of bars and restaurants, shops and stalls.

I think i coveredthe important points,but for a stress free relaxing stay in Albuferia, we would not hesitate to recommend this villa.

Fantastic Holiday

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do not do this Villa justice! We were a family of 7 and everyone thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villa Palma. The villa was lovely and clean, well equipped and in a super location. 5 mins from a bakery and little market. 15 min walk into the old town. Lovely pool. Anabela was fantastic from start to finish. So helpful and lovely to meet her on arrival. Fantastic holiday!

We were very apprehensive that everything would work out as we had not rented a villa previously, but from when we stepped off the plane Anabela had arranged everything perfectly, the airport transfer was waiting for us with car seats for the children as requested. The villa was amazingly clean and a lovely welcome pack with all the essentials ( including beer) was waiting for us! The villa was equipped with everything required and was only 20 minutes walk to the old town there is a safe and baby gate at the bottom of the stairs which are not advertised! Lovely villa gorgeous place would love to return and deal with Anabela and her team again!!

Amazing Villa

  • 5 of 5

Villa Palma is situated approx 20 minutes walk to the Old Town & 30 minutes walk to the Strip. The Villa is amazing, immaculate, very spacious & the games room is fab for kids. Lidl & Aldi are within 5 minutes walk & a bakery, fresh fruit & fish market not far from the Villa. The Villa was cleaned regularly as was the the pool & the gardens were very well maintained. Anabela was fantastic she dealt with everything, e mails & telephone calls were answered immediately, all booking confirmation, transfers & instructions to the Villa were perfect. We had an amazing holiday & cannot fault our stay at all, I would highly recommended Villa Palma, Anabela & Staff, hope to see you in the near future.

perfect location

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I have just returned from.a weeks stay at villa pill a and had an amazing week! Villa was beautiful and very clean inside and the pool area, description very accurate and kitchen was very well equipped especially with dishwasher.

The games room downstairs was an added bonus as we had one very cloudy day so kept us entertained! Villa was right around the corner from Lidl, which was excellent and only a short walk into the old town. We also had a water park trip organised and the coach pick up was also just around the corner, no car needed for a week at all.

Anabela the owner was very quick to respond via email and holiday booked with no problems. We also booked the taxi transfer from airport through Anabela which took a weight off our mind also.

Would recommend to anyone and would definately stay in villa palma again for its great location and pool

Thanks for a great week

Plenty of leisure/water parks and zoo marine are all within a short drive. If you decide not to hire a car, you can ask about transport to these fun day activities at the bus station or tourist outlets in Albufeira. Boat trips.
