Nice villa and fab pool, shame about the noise
The villa is a good size and equipped with pretty much all you need. The swimming pool is lovely and so is the outside area which would have been a great place to relax and read, however this was somewhat spoilt by the noise of the traffic on the road immediately in front of the house, particularly people on mopeds and the barking dogs of the neighbours - these noises also continued during the night. Maybe this would not bother everyone but my family found the noise to have a negative impact on our stay and after spending a decent amount of money to stay in this villa we were somewhat disappointed. I have to say that although the main issues are things that are outside of the owners control I feel that the description given that the villa is situated opposite a quiet park gives a false impression of a quiet tranquil place and this is not what we experienced
Truly a home from home, pictures are an exact representation.
All our family loved this villa. We are three generations, and it's definitely a villa for a family. Local shop nearby, all the information about this villa is spot on. The owners manual in the villa, is filled with valuable information about local transport and restaurants nearby and in the old town of Albuferia. It surpassed all our hopes for a great holiday. We would all go back to this villa.
Beautiful house in area close to old town
We have enough recently returned the this villa and had a brilliant time. The villa is situated about 15mins walk from the beautiful old town, but the walk is manageable as though I park.
There is a great supermarket a few doors down which is handy with a fab and very reasonable restaurant above.
The house has everything you need and the pool is a perfect place to cool off in the mid day sun
I definitely recommend this villa for your next holiday.
Thanks Jill and Ken for an amazing holiday!! My family and I cannot recommend this villa enough!!
Firstly it was so reassuring to have had constant contact from Jill and Ken prior to us going out. They booked out transport from and to the airport and provided us with an invaluable booklet on the villa and gave us personal tips on what to see and do around Albufeira. Their villa manager Carlos was extremely helpful and kind.
The villa was absolutely perfect. Clean, spacious and kitted out with everything you would ever need. There is a beautiful outdoor area and a stunning pool. We will probably next time pay for it to be heated- not that it stopped my son, even at night!!!
It was perfectly situated just outside the beautiful old town of Albufeira. Laden with amazing bars and restaurants and not far from a beautiful beach.
Also a few doors down there is a brilliant little supermarket selling lots of lovely fresh produce at very reasonable prices.
What can we say but ....... we would definitely love to come back next year!!
Great private villa in excellent location close to the old town
Recently stayed in this villa with my wife and small child and parents. The villa is excellent, very spacious, with modern amenities and entertainment (table tennis table was well used, although it caused a few arguments before nights out ;-)). The pool is fantastic, with optional heating which we decided against given the time of year. Saying that, we managed a brief dip on the hotter days! Outside area is great, with a private cabana which is well shaded and well equipped with loungers and BBQ, etc. Location wise it is a short walk, approx 10-15 minutes to the old town along a trail avoiding the main roads. There is a main supermarket style shop which equips everything on the same street as well as some small cafes and other ammenities. The booking was simple and helped me out with a cot bed for small child as well as stair gate etc. The host was great, we were little late due to car hire but no problems and also answered a query I had in the middle of the break. All in all, a great break and can reccomendations this villa! Thank you
Perfect place in a great location!
Recently stayed in this villa for a girls holiday and had a wonderful time. The pictures definitely do not do this place justice! Was pleasantly surprised by this villa. Great location not too far from the old and new town but not too close. Would definitely recommend! Jill was lovely and very accommodating. Thanks Jill!x
Alto dos Caliços is a residential suburb of Albufeira, 10 minutes walk from the Old Town. Our house is on the front-line of this urbanisation so isn't overlooked and has a semi-rural outlook. The river which once ran past our gate has been transformed into a delightful tree-lined walkway which winds its way down the valley into the Old Town.
At the bottom of the hill by the health centre/hospital there is a well-stocked supermarket, a couple of bar/cafes,a piri-piri chicken take-away and a family restaurant. Up on the hill are the Albufeira bus station, daily outdoor farmers market and weekly gypsy market.
Alto dos Caliços is well served by the town circuit GIRO buses which pass every 15 minutes, as well as local EVA buses which connect to every major town in the Algarve and the railway station which takes you to Lisbon. Airport transfers are typically 30-35 euros each way, so you won't need a hire car unless you actually want one.
