The Algarve region
Albufeira is in the golden triangle of the Algarve, Portugal's southernmost region. It has established itself as a firm family favourite. Its tropical climate boasts over 3000 hours of annual sunshine . Numerous golf courses are located within 20 minutes and many fantastic golden coves lie within a stones throw of your holiday location. Experience a holiday with something for every taste - great scenery to watersports, shopping to karting or just pure total relaxation.
Quinta Dos Brejos is a quiet residential district of Albufeira . The villa adjoins Algarve Golf Academy . Nearby is the new green area with a skate park, indoor swimming pool, athletic stadium and a couple of bars.
The Old Town of Albuferia with its picture postcard bay, Fisherman's Beach a sandy cove, flanked by limestone cliffs is five minutes drive away. The walk is quite hilly so as an alternative take one of the local buses or a taxi will cost approx 5 euros for 4 persons.
At the heart of the resort, the Main Square is home to many a colourful street artist and live music playing into the night give this area a marvelous atmosphere. Small market stalls occupy the streets around the square and you can easily find the ideal gift to take home with you. Its a bustling but yet traditional side of the resort and should not be missed on a visit to the region.
Is also five minutes drive from us and is known as 'The Strip'.
This long street runs north/south through the resort and contains everything you could possibly want during your stay. It is lined by many bars, restaurants, bureau de exchange points, supermarkets, souvenir shops, boutiques, ice cream parlous, information points, bike & car hire. The Strip culminates at a steep hill that finishes at Praia da Oura or Golden Beach. As the name suggests this is a golden sandy cove, shelving gently into the cool Atlantic ocean. There are sun beds and parasols for hire here and the water sports school will keep the more active occupied. At night 'The Strip' offers a livelier alternative with many music bars with bright lights well into the night.
I new, colourful addition to this area. Take a speed boat and find the dolphins or a leisurely cruise to enjoy the magnificent coastline.
Whatever type of holiday you are enjoying you are well catered for in Albuferia. All eating tastes are accounted for with hundreds of restaurants to chose from. You can sample the local cuisine or enjoy dishes from all corners of the world. Albufeira even offers those fast food establishments that we know well from home. If you are cooking yourself there are a multitude of different supermarkets to choose from. From the small specialist to large hypermarkets that sell simply everything.
On the first and third Tuesday in each month, year round, the traveling Gypsy market visits the site next to the bus depot to the north of Albufeira Old Town. Here you can barter for bargains in Shoes, leather goods, ceramics, clothes and other local handicrafts. For serious shoppers the newest addition to Algarve's shopping - "Algarve Shopping" is just ten minutes drive away. This two storey shopping mall has many different shops to browse around, as well as six cinemas, a bowling alley and a huge food court.
The scenery in the Algarve is fantastic with pretty coves and marvellous views from the mountains. If you would like some further entainment these are a sample of activities on offer:-
Zoomarine- a fun park where you can enjoy the dolphin show.
Several water parks - we recommend Slide and Splash
Almancil karting (if you are feeling competitive)
Sand sculpture exhibition ( we highly recommend)
Jeep or buggy safari
Leisurely boat trip from numerous departure points or treat yourself to a private charter ( details of companies available on request) - some boats also do dolphin spotting.
Cliff Richard's Vineyard tour.

This was our 2nd visit to Casa de Sonhas Albufeira. This villa is spectacular, we couldn't wish for more for a relaxing holiday. The age group ranged from 10-65 and there is something for every… More

"Great Villa, pity about the location and facilities"
Our holiday at Casa de Sonhas was for 8 days from 10-18/08/13 for 2 families of 4 parents and 6 children aged 18-22. The villa looked just like the photos and the weather was very hot (about 35C), so… More
Review has not been posted for 9 months on trip advisor since this party stayed with us and perhaps our response to points raised at the time has been overlooked.
The primary complaint of this guest was the lack of wifi - which worked perfectly prior to arrival and on departure. Owners contacted the provider on their behalf on receipt of complaint, who tested line and confirmed the internet was working perfectly. This was relayed to client with appropriate help. Our agent also checked and connected to wifi on first attempt. No other client has had a problem in connection. Free wifi as also available a five minute walk away at adjoining golf academy and owners of this facility have confirmed this party did not enquire despite this party taking advantage of free welcome drinks provided to all our guests including this party.
Air conditioning is provided on unlimited basis connected to sensors which detect movement. They are also set on timer for sleeping.
Villa is fully secure with adequate fencing to housing and ground adjoining. No other party has felt insecure in 7 years rental.
The villa is in a residential area around 5 minutes drive from beaches and supermarkets with full information provided in welcome pack at villa. Taxis can be ordered for 4 persons or for larger parties on request. A standard trip is 5 euros for 4 persons each way to the Old Town or Strip or local restaurants or bars are within 10 minutes or less walk. This information is listed in our information details prior to booking.
Great attention to detail is taken with all fittings and facilities. Some plates have become crazed due to constant dishwashing use - they are not chipped!!!
We regret we have no control over stray dogs as advised at the time.
We are sorry this party didn't enjoy their stay with us but we can assure that we rent a high quality villa in a quiet residential area and have had no complaints from previous guests, some of whom have returned on several occasions.

"Such a fun property for a large family"
Casa de Sonhas has it all - a large spacious property, ideally located within walking distance of the beach and town, but set far enough back to be quiet and private. All the rooms have TV, Video and XBox/PS3 - so teenagers can chill out quietly and then the massive games room with minibar, baby-foot, table tennis, air hockey, pool and home cinema is another god send for insomniac teenagers to take over and make their own.
The kitchen is well equipped and the plumbed in filtered water in the american fridge is a nice touch (no need to buy 5L drums of water). The pool is nicely laid out next to the BBQ which was on most days especially at EUR6 for kilo of fresh prawns !!
The Golf-Club is also a nice friendly place for a late night brandy or early morning coffee within 3 mins walk.
