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.

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.
The Villa was fabulous with everything you could want or need and we had a wonderful holiday, our only comment is regarding the outside furniture which was rather below par, not in quantity but quality, there are some lovely reasonably priced outside sofas on the market which would have made our stay 10 star perfect, the white plastic chairs were not comfortable and when holidaying in a villa you do spend a lot of your day by the pool. Apart from this, the location and easy access to various excellent beach bars ,was spot on, the beaches were clean and very picturesque, everyone we had contact with, taxi drivers,restaurant personnel and local shops were very friendly and helpful. I would recommend the Villa and area to anyone wanting a relaxed break away.

Fabulous villa and pool in a nice quiet location. Spotlessly clean on arrival and very well equipped. There are about 10 bars/restaurants within walking distance, although well spread out and not in any one location. The Spot bar just around the corner is highly recommended for very cheap drinks and pizzas/pasta from 6pm onwards. Best restaurants are the O Amigo Tapas restaurant (visited 4 times in our stay), the New Dubliner Irish pub (best breakfasts ever) and Scooby’s bar and pool which is great for kids and the owner and staff are amazing. A couple of nice beaches within 15 minutes walk but very busy and both have beach restaurants.

Couldn’t believe how clean & tidy the villa was on arrival. The downstairs bedroom was great for my son-in-law who is an amputee. Will definitely book again..

We really enjoyed our stay. As we went early in the year it did get cold in the evening but blankets and throws were provided. Our youngest family member was2 and the oldest 73. It suited us all. As none of us wanted to drive we found it convenient for beaches, shops and restaurants. The bus stop is just down the road and the taxis are very reasonable and helpful. Our Villa rep, Dean was also helpful. We spent a day at Scooby,s just across the road. This we would also recommend. We would like to recommend solmar Villas. Next year we are hoping to find a larger place as more of our family want to come

The villa was very well described in the literature and turned out to meet it exactly. A wealth of local restaurants and short walk to multiple beaches, the SPOT winning the prize for most relaxed friendly location with great service. Pool was not cleaned as regularly as described but the clean after first week was great. The villa owners supplied beach towels above the description that was much appreciated. The kitchen was very well provided for in terms of cooking utensils and equipment.

Such a lovely villa. It is huge and brilliant that all three bedrooms have en-suites. Not a lot around within walking distance but under €10 in a taxi to the old town and there are plenty of restaurants and bars there. Would definitely recommend.

The Villa is really nice and well furnished, it is in a nice area and it is in walking distance to three beaches and a couple of decent restaurants and bars. People must try the fish restaurant on the one of the beaches, slightly pricey but a worthwhile experience. Everyone is so friendly. Do take the Albufeira Open Bus Tour, it is worthwhile even as just an orientation experience, some of the stops you think "Really" but they have to make their money somehow. Do try the Winery tour located near to the large Continente Shopping Mall.
