I have a long experience in the hotel business, which is a great help on creating in Villa Santos all the conditions to make our guests love the stay in the villa.To reach that goal Villa Santos was recently renovated, modernized and decorated


We particularly wanted a country villa, but not too far from the sea and the town center. Our villa is in a perfect location we can get virtually anywhere within 10 minute ( shopping mall, city center, hospital, beach, sports center and golf ), and we can walk to the beach


We are interested in swapping 1 week in Villa Santos (any available week, except in July and August) with 1 Week in an apartment or house in London (accommodation for 4 persons) from 15 to 22 December.

Fantastic place, clean, large and well situated.

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic stay at this lovely house and compound. The property is so much more beautiful in person than I could’ve expected. A lovely gated drive way in the front with a covered parking spot. A beautiful pool with a small wading pool for kids, outdoor shower and a full game room/pool house with built in barbecue and pizza oven outside. Inside the kitchen was lovely and bedrooms and bathrooms were well placed. The house was set up perfectly for our two families traveling together. One bedroom is completely separate upstairs and then there is a large room with ensuite bathroom and three single beds and two other bedrooms close together with a bathroom between. Our families could be close and still have our own space. Cristina and Paulo were fantastic to work with. Extremely responsive and helpful. We had to change or plans at the last minute and they accommodated every request. We didn’t have any issues at all but they were so close if we needed anything. The house is very close to so many gorgeous beaches and most of what you need is in walking distance or very close with a car. The house is in a quiet neighborhood but still close to everything. Already trying to figure out how soon we can go back!!

Beautiful, fully equipped villa

  • 5 of 5

We are a bit slow in submitting our review of this villa as we stayed there in March this year but we felt we really had to do this despite our delay. This is a fantastic villa and has everything you could really need. It's in a quiet but not isolated area with a restaurant virtually next door and the main part of Albuferia just minutes away by car. The owners were fantastic and could not do enough for us. There were 6 adults in our party and each one of us loved this place and can't wait to go back. Thank you again Paulo and Chritina for a lovely stay and an easy and accommodating booking process

lovely villa with a very welcoming owner

we were welcomed by paulo the owner. he made us feel very at ease, and drove us to a supermarket many miles away and helped us with the shopping, what a great person. The villa was very clean and plenty of room for 8 of us. The kids enjoyed the pool and the games room had plenty of use, The restaurant almost next door was nice, went there 3 times. local beach is a must. i would happily return to villa santos. Was a great holiday thankyou.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Just returned home from a couple of beautiful days in villa Santos. As soon as you enter the villa you feel welcome. The villa is great furnished. We have rented a couple of other villas in the Algarve but never found a villa that was so thought after and with contemporary furnishings. Simply loved it. All the appliances in the kitchen worked well and were of a good quality. There is nothing you miss when you are inside OR outside the house. The garden is well maintained and very private. The location of the villa is great. Just everything you want is in near proximity. The owners are doing a great job. They are warm, friendly and welcoming. You really do feel a guest. We would recommend this villa to everybody.

Golf -: Excellent choice for Golfers :

The Algarve is a paradise for golfers, offering a choice of 35 beautifully tended golf courses, famous for its spectacular scenery, along with a fabulous coastline. The fantastic Algarvian weather give the possibility of playing golf in winter when northern countries courses are unplayable.

Villa Santos is ideally situated within short drive from many golf courses. The nearest is Salgados Golf course

at (5 km) 5 minute drive from the villa .

Golf courses of Vilamoura, Vale do Lobo and Quinta do Lago are at about 30 minute away to the East .The Courses of Carvoeiro, Penina and Alvor at 30 minute drive to West . The new course of Amendoeira in Silves is at only 15 minute drive.

After a fantastic day playing Golf, the evening in Albufeira is to be lived and remembered. The Old Town is expecting for you with excellent restaurants and bars, and its fantastic night life. The new town , known as The Strip , is also a must, in the Albufeira night and its where discos are situated.

The bars in summer close at 4am, and the discos at 6am, a good time to prepare yourself for another day of golf.
