The pretty fishing village of Albufeira is probably the epicentre of the new Algarve holiday region and although it has changed considerably over the last 40 years, it still retains a lot of charm. Our house is located 10kms behind Albufeira, in the coutryside and we are perfectly placed for visits to many different areas. The closeby beaches are astounding and must really be on your hit list if you visit the Algarve. There are many local pretty villages such as Paderne or Boliquieme or go further afield to Loule with its Saturday market or Monchique, an old spa town sitting high in the Serra de Monchique with views all the way to the coast. We are just 10 minutes from the main East/West motorway, the A22 which can take you to the wild beaches of the West Coast in 45 minutes.The South/North motorway, the A2 is also 10 minutes away and you can be in the capital of Portugal, Lisbon in 2.5 hours.

"An oasis of tranquility"
A beautifully restored property which comfortably accommodates 8 people located in a very quiet and peaceful area. The villa is extremely well equipped with every appliance you can think of in the kitchen. The living and sleeping areas are finished to a very high standard and the pool and outdoor dining area are fab. Definitely on our 'got to back soon' list.

"5 Star Accomodation with in a peaceful setting!"
Bear with me if this seems like information overload but I wanted to give as much information as possible for anyone interested in the villa. We stayed as a group of 6 adults and 2 children and we all rated the villa highly! We arrived to be greeted by Remco, the agent, who was extremely helpful and then we couldn't believe the standard of accommodation. The kitchen has a fabulous built in seating area and a huge table for everyone, the kitchen also has all the mod cons you may need. The living area is great with seating for everyone and then the pool table area was very popular with our teenage daughter and everyone when we had nightly competitions! The bedrooms all have en suites with huge beds especially in the master bedroom. The pool area is fabulous and this is the first villa our pale daughter has been happy in with a big shaded area and two massive parasols. The pool has quite a large shallow area for kids that can't swim which was great for our younger daughter. The owners left loads of information about the area, restaurants and supermarkets and are very quick to respond to any emails you have. The area is very quiet but it doesn't feel too isolated which is reassuring, within a short drive there are loads of restaurants but the villa was so nice we tended to stay in by the pool and cook. If you stay at Casa Charneco I don't think you will be disappointed and we would all be more than happy to stay again!
