Villa | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8
Villa Cris is an attractive and spacious villa set in a quiet location - at the end of a cul-de-sac in the residential area of Sesmarias in Albufeira. A hire car is recommended, although it is possible to walk to the nearest shop, restaurant, and the nearest beach. There's a larger selection of beautiful beaches and great restaurants within a short drive, plus the old town, resort and marina of Albufeira are all just 7-10 minutes away by car.
Standing in enclosed, private gardens, Villa Cris commands a great position, slightly elevated and overlooking the countryside, Albufeira's colourful marina and beyond to the sea. The villa is very well looked after and maintained by its owner, ensuring every room in this traditional Algarvean villa, is decorated in a modern colourful way.
A gated entrance leads to a sloped driveway with space for a couple of hire cars, and also the pool terrace. On the ground floor there's a traditional-style modern kitchen, with modern appliances, a breakfast table and a doorway leading to the dining terrace and barbecue area, from here there are lovely views across to Albufeira Marina. Also on the ground floor is the spacious living-dining room, with comfortable seating, a TV and DVD player, dining table and chairs, and two sets of patio doors leading to the pool and garden. There is also a twin and a double bedroom which share a large bathroom with twin sinks and a jacuzzi-bath. Both bedrooms are tastefully decorated and have access to the garden.
Upstairs, there's a large landing area, a double bedroom with a modern en-suite shower bathroom and a double bedroom with an en-suite bathroom with a bath and a shower, and access through patio doors to a balcony.
The owners have decided to make the most of the large, practical basement area. As well as the laundry, there's comfortable sofas and a TV and a further dining table, making it a great place for older children and teenagers seeking a little bit of independence on their family holiday.
Outside, the pool terrace is surrounded by sun loungers and shade in the form of a parasol, and there's a handy poolside shower for you to cool down from the afternoon sun. The terrace leads all the way down one side of the house to access the dining area, barbecue and kitchen. The other side has the sloped driveway leading down to the basement level.
All-in-all, Villa Cris is a great base for a summer villa holiday - it's spacious and modern with all the amenities needed to enjoy time around the villa - yet it's close enough to explore this great part of the Algarve and the many local beaches, as well as a selection of excellent restaurants.

Holiday villas in Portugal
A Villa Parade holiday in Portugal means staying in one of Europe's warmest countries. Regardless of where you are, you can expect summer temperatures to be around 30°C which means our range of coastal resorts are perfect for your stay. You can spend a day at the beach, taking a dip in the Atlantic whenever you feel like cooling off, or hire one of our many villas with swimming pools.
Along with its great climate, Portugal has an absolute wealth of beaches. With over 850 kilometres of coastline, there are a lot of Portuguese beaches to discover, but our villas in the Algarve put you within easy reach of some of the best. Portugal is one of the best locations in Europe for a beach holiday when you take a look at what the country can offer holiday makers. Whether you want to take advantage of the beach-bars for a drink, try your hand at some water sports (surfing, jet-skiing, kite-surfing and windsurfing are common activities) or just lounge on the sand, Portugal can provide the perfect place for you to do so.
If you'd rather spend all or part of your holiday delving into Portugal's rich history and culture, then many of our villas to rent in Algarve are close to plenty of cities and towns throughout the country which offer not only a rich variety of monuments, museums and other places of interest, but also some fantastic views; Portugal is an absolutely beautiful country with plenty to offer the sightseer. There are also large areas of the country that allow the local wildlife to roam undisturbed, and any nature-lovers are sure to enjoy a trip to Peneda-Gerês, the Duoro Valley and Serra da Estrela.
There's also Portugal's golf. Recent years have seen the country become a great destination for fans of the sport, with plenty of Portugal's golf courses ranking amongst the best in Europe. Not only are the courses great for experts and newcomers alike, but they're also designed to allow you to enjoy Portugal's wonderful landscape and views.
Another advantage of our villas in Portugal is being able to take advantage of some of Portugal's festivals, especially the Festival do Sudoeste in the south of the country, which takes advantage of the long stretches of beach and excellent landscapes to put on one of Portugal's most famous and well-received festivals.
If you've got an interest in fashion, then a stay in one of our holiday villas in Algarve can be a great chance to pick up some of Portugal's finest offerings. Fairs are the perfect place to pick up unique, handcrafted items, including purses, clothes, glass ornaments and more. There are also some great fashion houses, well-known inside Portugal, that you can find dedicated shops for, or in some of the fashion shops in towns and cities.
Food fans will find themselves spoilt for choice during a villa holiday in Portugal. Soup might not sound like an adventurous dish, but the Portuguese have turned soup-making into an art form. You'll find soups made of fish, sausages, chicken and all sorts of other ingredients, often as the first course to the rest of a delicious meal. The grilled chicken, sardines, veal and pork are all mainstays in Portuguese restaurants. There is also a huge selection of pork, beef, seafood and even wild boar dishes that can be found in restaurants throughout the country. During meals, Portugal's famous wines are the perfect accompaniment, and a port wine is a great post-meal drink.
We have villas in some of Portugal's best resorts, and whilst our villas in Algarve are always popular, there are plenty of other resorts that provide all you need for a great holiday. Why not stay in a villa in Albufeira and enjoy some of Portugal's best beaches? Or enjoy the golfing that villas in Vilamoura offer? Villas in Carvoeiro are a great choice for those looking for somewhere quieter, perfect for fans of beautiful scenery.
Superb sandy beaches here and the restaurants are family orientated, with children always welcome, and needless to say there are some wonderful beach restaurants offering excellent lunchtime or early evening menus including sardines, salads, locally caught fish and grilled meats – perfect with a chilled bottle of Vino Verde.Some of the beaches have rock pools, which children can spend hours exploring, or observing the marine life left behind when the tide goes out.
