Our family and close friends have owned and rented out our properties in the Algarve for the past 30 years, and we pride ourselves on our small selection of luxury properties that we welcome our guests to. All our 5 properties are featured on Owners Direct under the following property ID's P7363, P7368, P13027, P13028, P11070.

Why Andrew Killeen chose Albufeira

This property is new and was completed in May 2012.

We chose the location because of its close proximity to local restaurants and beaches.

What makes this villa unique

You can enjoy walking down to Praia da Coelha, a lovely sandy cove around 10 minutes walk away, where there is a good beach bar / restaurant, and in the evenings you can stroll to several good restaurants within just a few minutes walk. The local bus service from Albufeira to the lovely Gale beach passes close by.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Andrew & Paul,

Just a quick line to thank you and all involved in making our recent stay in your villa a most enjoyable and memorable one. The villa, its location and its specification not only met my expectation but exceeded it. The villa manager was very helpful and informative. The cleaning of both the villa and the pool was excellent and unobtrusive.

Your administration in the booking and the information packs was also excellent.

Whilst we are not planning to holiday in Europe next year I will certainly keep your address and contacts on file for future reference.

Kind regards Ian Dixon



This villa certainly has he WOW factor, we couldn't believe it when we arrived.

The pool and garden were exceptional, and the bathrooms so beautiful.

Thank you for a really great holiday.

Great villa, great location, great value - perfect

  • 5 of 5

An excellent villa in a great location. Would we return? - undoubtedly yes. Would we look elsewhere in the Algarve - undoubtedly no. This was a high end villa that was spotlessly clean, both inside and out. It was extremely well designed and very well equipped and was difficult to fault. The pool and BBQ area were first-rate, but some excellent restaurants were close by and the beaches were walking distance or a short drive.away. Why go anywhere else?

Very impressive worth every penny

  • 5 of 5

Again we were not disapointed with this fabulous villa in Portugal

This was our second year to come back and will be booking again shortly the area is very private and quiet just as we like it. Thank you for your attention to detail every thing you need is there. My only suggestion is to get a washing line or rotory

Thank you

Jackie

Owner's Response: Hello again Jackie Thanks for taking the time to review. I will ask our housekeeper to look into providing a line or rotary dryer. If you would like to book again for 2018, be very quick as we are almost fully booked. Best regards Andrew

Luxury Algarve Villa

  • 5 of 5

The villa completely matched the description and more! Outside provided a large pool, water feature, grassed area with many mature olive trees, a terrace area with room for sun beds and which received the sun throughout the day. There was also a covered area with a BBQ, power and sink. A large table and chairs ment outside eating was enjoyed in comfort. There was also a washing machine. Both the in and outside were immaculately maintained. Inside the property was shear luxury. We tried to think of something else you could need but we were defeated. Five en-suite bedrooms plus an additional bathroom, separate dining room, lounge area and a perfectly appointed kitchen plus additional first floor terraces completed the property. The manager was easy to contact and responded quickly to a slight problem with a safe. Finally, there are several quality restaurants within a 15 minute walk, the beach is 10 minutes away and shopping Algarve is a short drive away. Our family had a fantastic holiday and we would recommend the property to everyone looking for a luxury villa.

Owner's Response: Dear Mrs Fish Thank you for your review of our villa Cantinho Oliveiras. As all will see from the reviews on Owners Direct, we get many like this, and I assume there are holidaymakers out there who are sceptical of our reviews, but we can assure everyone that they are all genuine, as our guests will know. We hope you will consider returning to our villa soon, but don't delay, we are already almost fully booked for 2018. Best regards Andrew

Beautiful holiday Villa

  • 5 of 5

The property exceeded all our expectations. It was wonderful to have 6 adults and one young adult each with their own space and privacy because of the size and design of the villa. All of the bathrooms were beautifully furnished. Air conditioning in the bedrooms was very effective but the villa seemed to keep relatively cool considering temperatures reached 40 C on over 3 occasions. The housekeeper did an amazing job of cleaning and tidying but was totally discreet. Just one thing, what about a circular washing line at the side of the villa? The outside area is so spacious, the pool beautiful and everywhere is so well maintained.Finally, I would recommend a hire car to visit all the wonderful beaches and villages around the villa. We would have no hesitation in recommending this villa to anyone. Many thanks for a superb holiday. Sue and Rob Wilson.

Owner's Response: Dear Sue & Rob Thank you for taking the time to write your review. We are really pleased that you enjoyed your holiday at Cantinho Oliveiras. We have noted your comment suggesting a rotary washing line, and will look into where we could put one. We hope you will be back soon and look forward to hearing from you. Best regards Andrew

Luxury in the sun...

  • 5 of 5

We have frequented this wonderful property 4 times now & never tire of all that it has to offer. It has 5 ensuite bedrooms all individually decorated to a high standard,each balcony serving a sea view, fabulous surroundings outside for those lazy days where you can while away an hour or two by cooling off in the large maintained pool in fact it's a shame to actually leave the villa!

There are also extensive grounds and fabulous views from the roof top also,

However if you chose to there are at least 4/5 lovely restaurants in walking distance from the villa which is an added bonus. Dom Dinis is literally a stones throw which offers tasty dishes to tempt anyone's palate & a big plus for us was the bar attached for those pre or after dinner cocktails. Another of our long standing favourites which again is very close is Oh Maheinero , beautifully refurbed, pristine turned out staff & food to a very high standard.

You won't be disappointed in fact you won't want to go anywhere else on a return visit.

Owner's Response: Dear Mr Gleeson We ae grateful you have taken the time to submit your review, and delighted that you have once again enjoyed Cantinho Oliveiras. Although we use Dom Dinis and O' Marinheiro restaurants, we also enjoy chicken piri piri in Guia, and several of the beach restaurants nearby such as Evaristo and O Sardinha. Thank you for re- booking for 2018, we are sure you will enjoy it once more. Best regards Andrew
