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.
Great villa very private and ideal for a short break.

Fabulous villa, extremely modern and spacious. Perfect for my family of 6, the outdoor space and pool were beautifully maintained with the latter being used continuously as we had week long sunshine. This villa is in an ideal location, a few minutes walk to the beach and several great restaurants. We will definitely return next year.

Great location, literally 3 minutes walk to the beach. Close to some small shops, or bugger supermarket 5 mins in a car. Quiet in October, but imagine the area may be quite busy in summer months. The villa was absolutely huge and very clean

Beautiful villa in a residential location within an easy walk to Sao Rafael beach which is beautiful and has a good restaurant/bar overlooking it. There's a handful of restaurants and shops in the area within walking distance which is handy but we definitely found a car to be of benefit as we were out of season and the weather wasn't the best for us. One of our party has limited mobility and so the ground floor bedroom was the main reason for choosing this villa. There are a few steps around, getting from the gate to the front door and also a couple within the property itself but these did not cause us too many issues. The settees weren't ideal for older people, not particularly comfortable to be honest and for anyone with limited mobility, just not possible to sit in or get up from. I'd definitely change these is I had the option. The kitchen was very well appointed and nicely laid out. As we were out of season and the weather was against us, we found the villa to be very cold. There are air conditioning/heating units in each bedroom although I prefer not to heat a room this way. The living area, dining area and kitchen were too vast an area to heat effectively an there was no facility to do so. This is not a criticism as such, we were just underprepared, nothing that some warmer clothes couldn't fix so be prepared! Good news for hot summers though. Also, and again, not a criticism more an observation, there are a few permanent residences around and we were woken regularly to the sound of a cockerel crowing and numerous dogs barking, these continued throughout the day and did become rather irritating on the few occasions we were able to sit out and enjoy any sunshine. Dogs on either side, fighting to be heard over the cockerel really did grate on the nerves. I'd hope on hot days when you're seeking peace and quiet, the animals will be seeking shade rather than competing with each other and wouldn't be so noisy. I really don't want this to sound like a negative review and these were all fairly minor points and apart from the neighbours animals all easily fixed. We had a little blip during one of the days when there was a weather warning in the area, power cut and we contacted the local representative Donna. She was brilliant, understood the issue immediately and was back with a solution within a few minutes. Very friendly and professional. The villa really is beautiful and has everything needed for a great stay

From outside the villa appears traditional Portuguese. From inside very modern layout with lovely furniture and a very well equipped kitchen. Outside there is a good BBQ area swimming pool, patio table and chairs for alfresco dining, table tennis table and sun loungers around a nice sized pool. Bedrooms and en suites are well decorated and comfortable, with 2 of them having sea views from balconies. Whilst there were only 5 of us staying in the villa it can accommodate 10 comfortably. It is situated a short 5-10 min walk from the Sao Rafael beach, this is a lovely secluded sandy beach with a nice beach bar/restaurant. Although we didn't use them there were a number of bars and restaurants nearby within walking distance. A car is not essential but we did find it very convenient. The Marina with its bowling, restaurants/bars and indoor go-karting track was a 2min drive away. Albufeira old town was 5 min drive and The Strip was a further 5mins away. Would definitely stay again. Loved it
