We know that you might be feeling uncertain about booking your next holiday with the ever-changing travel restrictions, which is why we've introduced our Travel Restrictions Guarantee for your peace of mind.
Book your next villa holiday with confidence, safe in the knowledge that you can either move your dates or receive a holiday voucher for the full amount paid if your travel dates are restricted by either FCDO/local government advice advice or local restrictions in your destination country.*
The Travel Restrictions Guarantee is automatically included in the website price and can be removed before you book, however we strongly advise you keep it to give you added flexibility and protection.
You will still need to purchase a comprehensive travel insurance policy as soon as your booking is confirmed. This insurance should, as a minimum, protect you against cancellation, curtailment, medical expenses, loss/theft of possessions and documents, personal liability and airline failure.

Albufeira is the jewel in the Algarve's crown and is all about the entertainment factor. This bustling seaside town is home to silky soft sands, a cosmopolitan marina and plenty of family-fun adventures, including water parks and a zoomarine park. You can also potter the cobbled streets of Albufeira's whitewashed Old Town and soak up the local culture, or take your pick from some of the best beaches in Portugal including the nearby golden sands of Gale and Sao Rafael.
Good location between old and new Albufeira town, ideal for mixed age groups, with uber taxi costing around 4euro either way. Bit of noise from petrol station which is at bottom of garden area across scrub land. Supermarket 5 min walk as is Maccies and KFC. Villa fab well equipped great size. Rep doesn't bother you unless needed and when we did, replied to text instantly. Would go back.

Villa is large, bright, clean, modern, spacious, with well equipped kitchen, great air con, good alarm system and electric shutters (very handy) which makes the villa feel secure. There’s a large flat screen TV with loads of channels via MEO box. 2 very spacious king size bedrooms & 2 good twins and 5 nice bathrooms. Sleeping areas are laid out in separate units each with bathroom which gives privacy if with friends/ other couples. Sitting area furniture is not great for 8 people (1 x 3 seater and 1 x 2 seater) and Outside space is similar. Fine for us as a coupleDonna as rep was immediately responsive and helpful when there was an issue with the living room air con. Monica the local rep was really fantastic - very helpful, humorous and ensured the unit was replaced by the Tues - we had arrived on the Saturday. There are several terrace areas but pool itself is small and badly shaped tho very accessible. Only gets sun until mid pm. More suited to those with toddlers as there is a separate toddlers pool taking up quite a bit of space. My only complaint is that the pool wasn’t cleaned while we were there and, clearly, not properly cleaned for a while. There was a line of black grease around the water surface area in the deeper end with several areas of green algae built up on corners and on the bottom of the deep end. The back filter was really dirty. I know it doesn’t help that there are 3 palm trees beside it with the wind blowing leaves/ fronds into the pool just as quickly as you can clear it with the net. That’s nature but the other cleanliness issues above are not caused by this. Villa is pretty handy to both Old Town and Strip and near local bars/ restaurants. No hassle key entry system! Good value.

This villa was just what we wanted. A group of 6 of us. Plenty of room. Well equipped. Pool a good size. Shops close by. The villa is central between old town and new town. Bev was the popular villas rep and she was very helpful and lovely. A lovely villa.

The villa is ideally situated if you want to be close to everything, but just far enough away so that you can relax around the pool. The villa was the perfect size for a party of seven.

Nicely finished villa in convenient city location for a very reasonable price. TV service was excellent, made full use of facilities including wifi and barbecue. House was secure with shutters on all main windows. However, a few minor issues including missing lightbulbs in a lot of the rooms, safe was locked upon arrival so could not be accessed, a couple of the air-conditioning units leaked so had to be left off, the parasol for the patio would not go all the way up and pool layout was a little strange (also would have been helpful to have the pool net left out so we could clean it out ourselves if needed. However, still a very enjoyable holiday!

The villa was very modern, with excellent amenities. The villa does back onto a large garage forecourt which may put people off.

Good location, some noise from the main road which was to be expected. Well appointed, could have done with a full sized mirror. Very nice.
