Aptly named, this three-bedroom villa is perfect for groups of friends who want to hang out in Castelo. Casa Dos Amigos is only a ten-minute walk from a quiet, Portuguese beach and only five minutes to a selection of authentic restaurants.
Enter under traditional archways and Casa Dos Amigos is a whitewashed haven under the sun. We loved the turquoise swimming pool, fringed by sun loungers and easy chairs. Al fresco dining is a must here, with an outdoor dining table, shaded under a large parasol. The open grill is perfect for serving up seafood delights.
Recently refurbished, the villa interior is immaculate, with a cool, contemporary living space, glossy kitchen and plush, hotel style bathrooms. The upper floor has a relaxing patio with coffee table and chairs, the perfect place to watch the sunset over a few thirst quenching cocktails.
Castelo beach has a relaxed, authentic vibe. Amble from your villa to the beach, enjoy some of Portugal’s traditional cuisine with a friendly welcome and back to the sea for a sublime sunset. Nearby dolphin spotting tours make for a great day out and if you love seeing marine life, Albufeira’s Zoomarine Algarve is worth a visit too.
Usual day is Saturdays.
Mid-May - Mid-September is fixed, flexible at any other times.

Located to the west of the lively resort of Albufeira, the peaceful haven of Castelo is the perfect base for enjoying the sights of the Algarve. The breathtaking Castelo beach is surrounded by impressive cliffs and castle shaped rock formations which is where this resort gains its name. Castelo is a quiet residential area making it perfect for relaxing holidays and still offers a selection of bars, restaurants and a supermarket. The nearby resort of Albufeira, known for its fantastic sandy beaches and sizzling nightlife, is conveniently 10 minutes away.
Lovely clean and roomy villa with excellent pool. Perfect location for us as 10 minute walk to a lovely Sandy beach. We had a hire car so easy access to a selection of big supermarkets for provisions or for days out. Lots of good quality or cheaper restaurants/bars within walking distance or a short drive away. Enjoyed a few drinks/snacks and chats with the friendly locals at bar Sesmarias just down the road from the villa. We bbq’d at the villa and dined at the Albufeira marina but didn’t venture into the old town or strip where there’s an abundance of bars/restaurants.
Note car needs to be taken when exiting out of villa electric gate and drive in the car as it’s narrow and not easy to see cars on the main road despite there being mirrors opposite.
The villa has good quality furniture, bedding, towels and plenty of hot water for four adults. Cleaner came in several times during our two weeks to change bedding, towels, leave pool towels and each time left the villa smelling so fresh and clean.
Had to contact Solmar on the first day when the power went off and they responded immediately by sending out an electrician to sort it.
The first day we also had a problem with the dishwasher leaking bubbles and flooding the kitchen floor. We discovered the previous occupants had put washing up liquid in the rinse aid section. We presume the previous occupants had also filled the ice machine on the American freezer with water as this had leaked and frozen solid on the inside shelving. Although Solmar offered to come and correct, we sorted these two problems ourselves but would suggest a note is put in the welcome pack so it doesn’t happen again. Didn’t spoil our stay - we had a wonderful holiday, were sorry to leave and want to return.

We stayed here in September 2017 and decided to return again in June 2018. The villa is modern and private.

Excellent villa, perfect for a group of friends having 3 double en-suite bedrooms. Huge pool and plenty of sun beds. Have stayed here before we knew the location was good for us, with shops and restaurants close by and the nature reserve just a short drive away next to the beach, perfect for a long morning walk, followed by coffee at the beach cafe. The service was good too as when we arrived with a huge sack of oranges and discovered there was no juicer, the cleaning lady got in touch with someone and within an hour a brand new juicer was delivered.
