Solmar Villas is pleased to offer a wide selection of luxury villas in Albufeira, on the Algarve. Up until the 1960's Albufeira was just a small fishing village. As the decade progressed, tourism made its mark on the town, and since then substantial developments have transformed it into one of the most famous holiday resorts in Portugal, with more than 100 hotels, apartments and villa rentals on offer across the coastline. Despite these luxury developments, some of the Old Town has remained the same, and with its cobbled streets winding up the hillside, it is still easy to get a feel of how the little village once. Tradition and luxury combine when you stay at a private villa in Albufeira.
Villas in Albufeira: What to Expect?
Whatever type of holiday you are looking for, there is resort in Albufeira to suit – the variety is nothing short of astounding. For this reason, it is worth doing some research before you book your holiday villa rental to ensure that the region you choose offers the kind of getaway that you’re after!
For a quiet holiday away from it all, consider Vale de Para. If you’re looking for a family-friendly resort check out Gale, Olhos de Agiua, Castelo, and San Rafael. If you’re after a more lively resort full of late-night bars and clubs then choose accommodation close to 'The Strip'. Some of the bars in the Old Town stay open until 4am! Not matter which area you choose for your holiday villa rental, you can be sure that a beautiful sandy beach is never far away.
The Old Town of Albufiera has a laid back, relaxed feel about it. The central square is tree lined and surrounded by cafes and restaurants. From there, narrow streets lead off to an array of shops including quaint boutiques, leather shops and souvenir shops, along with additional bars and restaurants.
English is spoken by many, and most restaurants will provide you with an English menu. If you are staying at one of our villas in Albufeira, it isn't really necessary to rent a car – especially since parking can be difficult. There is a 'tourist train' that runs between The Strip and Albufeira Old Town, and the local ‘Giro’ minibus network.
