“Fantastic relaxing holiday in a prime location. We will be back x”

Myself and my best friend stayed as this house for 9 nights and I only got home yesterday but had to write a review. We had a fantastic relaxed holiday with the old town of Albufeira on our door step.
Where do I start the place is huge with plenty of space for a big family. The layout of the house is great and the roof terrace is fantastic. What a retreat to relax all day with great views of around the town and the plunge pool is bigger than we thought it would be and used it daily to cool of from the fantastic weather we had. Cristina and Paulo were great from all the questions I kept emailing them before we went to printing my boarding pass off for me for the way home.
It was so nice to have the beach on our door step but still just on the outskirts from the real hustle and bustle. Taxis are cheap and we took one up to Lidls on the first day to get our groceries etc There is also an Aldi across the road from it and they are both large stores. Albufeira Old Town is a beautiful area with all that you could need and very family friendly. We will be back next year xxxx

“A great holiday choice, home from home”

We chose this villa right in the heart of the old town one because of its location and two because there were eight of us, six adults and our two grandchildren aged two and four and we wanted everyone together and each to have their own bedrooms and because of the children we did not want a villa were the children had too easy access to the pool for safety reasons.
The communication with the owners Paolo and Cristina was excellent from our first initial enquiry about the property and continued throughout. We were met on arrival at the property by Paolo who is really friendly and full of information about the property and the area. The house is a family property and has been in the family for a long time and has only recently been converted into holiday accommodation. The property is a credit to the owners.
The ground floor of the house comprises a living room with three comfortable couches and TV, DVD and Satellite box. Off the living room is a double bedroom with on suite toilet, also off the living room are two more bedrooms one a double and one with bunk beds, we used these for our grandchildren one in the bunk beds and the younger one in a cot in the double bedroom, adjacent to these bedrooms is a shower room/toilet. All the windows have blackout shutters which we found very useful and all rooms have air-conditioning.
Upstairs on the first floor the house comprises of a dining room with table and seating for eight or more, a very functional kitchen with a small table and chairs and high chair, a good fridge/freezer and dishwasher and a good oven and hob.
Also there are two double bedrooms and two showers and toilets, from this floor is access to the roof terrace which has a plunge pool and eight sun loungers and a bench table that can accommodate eight people and a bar b cue. The pool is accessed by steps that can be removed to prevent the children climbing unsupervised into the pool which was a good safety feature.
The house is also well equipped with a washing machine, iron and ironing board and a good hairdryer for those that need it. There is also a safe in the property.

“Beautiful Home, Perfect Location”

I spent one week in the Old Town House with my parents, husband and children. It was amazing. The owners were an absolute dream to deal with. They really couldn't do enough to help. My mother has limited mobility so the downstairs bedroom with en-suite was excellent. The house is fab, a real home away from home, It is in an amazing location a very short stroll to the square and the beach. I would highly recommend this house for an amazing holiday.

“Location, Location, Location! Huge townhouse right in the centre of the Old Town”

We enjoyed a great stay in this townhouse. The location is the best you could ask for. Right in the centre of the Old Town but you couldn't hear any nightlife while sleeping. Everything is on your doorstep so no need for taxis. The house is very big with 4/5 bedrooms. The beach is very close so just a short stroll. We would definitely recommend this townhouse.
