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.

Much like the rest of the alluring Algarve, Sao Rafael is home to a pristine Blue-Flag beach backed by towering limestone cliffs, making for an idyllic and picturesque retreat! There's a real easy-going way of life here, with old-school restaurants serving delicious Portuguese cuisine. For a slice of adventure, the vibrant and action-packed resort of Albufeira is a short drive away where water parks, beaches and a thrilling nightlife await.
The villa was very spacious and bright and modern with a lovely refreshing pool. There were no roman steps for easy access but we all managed to get in and out, even my elderly mother. It was very private, quiet and secluded although walking distance to restaurants, bars and mini-markets. We walked to the beach one day which was very pleasant. The bathrooms were large and everything was very clean, we even had a midweek change of towels and quick clean. There was beautiful views from the balconies. We could even see the sea from the garden area which was lovely with grass area and table tennis. The villa is well suited for families, we were a party of 8. Myself, husband, grown-up son, daughter, son-in-law, baby grand-daughter, toddler grand-daughter and my mother. There was plenty of room for all of us and we enjoyed alfresco meals altogether. Would recommend villa and would love to return.

We had a great time and the villa was wonderful. It was a great place to relax and get away from it all. Everything we wanted was there. We had a couple of trips to Albufeira by local taxi which was really easy. We went on the Historical Algarve trip arranged by your local office which I felt was really good value. It was a really full and interesting day. The welcome pack was also good value it was just what was needed when we arrived late at night. We did not have to buy much more food for the holiday as we ate out for dinner. We found the diner by your office very welcoming. We had sufficient Water to save us having to carrying it. Your staff in Portugal were very helpful. Maureen who visited us on Sunday morning gave us some valuable information which certainly assisted with our holiday planning. We certainly would look at booking your villas in the future.

As we booked early in the season we were pleased to find very few people around.

The villa is beautiful, in a quiet area just between Gale and Albufeira. It has Great views and is very secure, with security shutters on windows and doors. It is well equipped but the maids didn’t leave anything in it from previous occupants - no hand soap or additional toilet rolls, just a dribble of washing up liquid and a sponge. So be prepared. There is a small mini market within walking distance and a Spa or an Apalonia a short drive away. The beach is a 5 minute walk away with fabulous cliff top views. There are a few nice restaurants within walking distance, of particular note is Dom Dinis and Restaurant Praia Grande. Both highly recommended but you may need to book in high season. The only issue we had with the villa was that the beds are harder ours, so took some getting use to. Maids were brilliant and very efficient - just came in for a mid week towel change. The villa also had a small oil filled radiator which was very handy on one of the colder nights - it was late October. Overall an excellent villa and I would highly recommend it.
