“The perfect home from home!” The best and simplest review I can write for this villa is that I want to live in Portugal and I want this to be my home! I travelled with my boyfriend and family in June 2012 for 2 weeks and could not fault this beautiful home that Mr Parker has made for his guests. We were pleased to meet Graham Parker on our arrival; a charming Englishman who we discovered has been living in the area for about 10 years now. He ensured that we had everything we could have needed to enjoy our stay and his superb knowledge of the local area would come in handy for us later on. The 4-bed villa is set in a beautiful location just a very short walk away from the marina in Vilamoura. Busy as the marina can be at times, you feel a million miles from it in the very large back garden of the villa when the only noise you will hear is the crack of golf balls being driven down the fairway of the golf course behind the marina. You may also hear a passing plane but always remember, that this is the route home from Faro, so any plane you see will be leaving and you can feel sorry for the poor souls leaving Portugal while you sunbathe in the back garden. A huge, beautiful tree sits in the back garden with the garden around it and almost stands and looks proudly over the more than adequately sized pool and sun loungers. An array of lilos and water toys were a great addition, even for ones of a mature nature :) Also in the garden is a beautiful built in barbeque (which was used on a few occasions) and a wonderful patio area with table and seating on the terrace looking over the pool. It was the perfect base for brunch by the pool and a few sangrias as the afternoons wore on. Downstairs in the villa contains a huge living area, dining table and from what I am told a new refurbished kitchen which was all more than adequate for the 8 this villa holds. A separate utility room was a handy and pleasant surprise with a little yard to the side to dry your clothes quickly in the Portuguese sunshine. 2 bedrooms and a bathroom finish off the downstairs. The bathroom looks to be designed to highest spec, and both the twin and double bedrooms are beautifully decorated. The double bedroom downstairs is huge, with patio doors leading out on to the terrace and a beautifully decorated ensuite with a huge, tiled walk in shower. Upstairs there is another bathroom (of the same high design) and another twin and double bedroom. Both of these bedrooms open out on to a stunning balcony terrace looking out over the back garden and the golf course behind. This is a complete suntrap, comes with a lovely table and chairs and makes for a lovely few nights with a glass of wine watching the sun go down! The villa is located perfectly within Vilamoura. A leisurely walk would take about 10 mins but in the glorious sunshine, it was never a chore. Just a few hundred yards down the street is a local supermarket, which has everything you will need for your stay. My father very gladly took on the chore of fetching the freshly baked bread in the mornings for breakfast! There is also a little pub beside the shop if the walk there gets too hot and you need a drink to cool down - I discovered this when all the men in the group decided to go to the shop "to get the daily papers". As I mentioned earlier, Mr Parker's advice became very valuable to us on our trip. Not wanting to eat at the Marina every night and pay over the odds for food that was priced for tourists, he was able to recommend a wonderful array of very local restaurants for us to try. The food in these places was traditional Portuguese fayre and about half the price if not more than at the Marina. Don't get me the wrong, the Marina is stunning but if you want to eat like the locals, ask Mr Parker about Za Galo, La Cabana, Retiro des Campones and Jacinto (for the fish lovers). He also directed to us to BJ's Oceanside Bar where we enjoyed our last Friday eating fabulous food and listening to live music overlooking the beach. All in all, I really cannot find any faults with the villa, the location or Mr Parker himself. We knew if there was anything we needed, he was at the end of the phone and that was very reassuring being in a place where we didn't speak the language or know our way around! This villa will appeal to anyone who wants to go away and enjoy some peace and quiet in the sun with all that Vilamoura has to offer within easy reach. I very much hope that I will be back in Vilamoura some day and if I am, there is no question in my mind as to where I will stay!

“An excellent villa for a relaxing holiday” THis was our second visit to Paloverde. It is a very well equiped holiday home and is to a very high standard throughout. The private pool is the cleanest and most well maintained pool we have ever had on a holiday. The owners supply lots of local information and maps as well as a large supply of books, games and a TV with satelitte channels. A hire car is essential. There are lots of lovely fishing villages, beaches and towns fairly locally. Zoomarine and Slide and Splash are within a 20 minute drive from the villa and make good days out

“A very relaxing holiday, a lovely spacious apartment with with all amenities to hand” We (family of 4 including two daughters aged 11 and 8) had a most relaxing stay in Villa Baia. The apartment complex was lovely - the apartment was very spacious and very clean - the pool area was lovely and the staff very friendly and helpful. The complex is located very close to the Luz beach and promenade with plenty of restaurants for all tastes. We would definitely recommend this apartment complex and area to family and friends and we intend to go back again soon.

“Loved everything about this place! Highly Recommended!” My husband and I came here on vacation from Washington, DC and loved every minute of our stay. The villa is simply beautiful; with picturesque views of true Portuguese countryside you’ll feel as though you’re a million miles away and completely relaxed. The house is spotless, with a beautiful kitchen, open plan living and dining area, and 4 beautiful bedrooms – 2 with en suite. Personally, we loved the roof-top terrace for sitting out and watching the sunset and the balcony right off our bedroom for eating breakfast in the morning. The pool is a lovely size and perfect for cooling off after a day on the sun loungers. The outdoor kitchen/dining area is also fabulous for al fresco eating. Located not too far from the beach and with plenty of authentic Portuguese restaurants nearby I highly recommended this luxurious getaway! Best Regards, Danielle and Richard from Washington, DC, USA

“Exceptional villa inside and out, luxury fixtures & fittings, good sea views, plus child & family friendly” We arranged to stay at this villa at very short notice and the response from the owners was very prompt and efficient in all aspects of the booking. In my view the property is highly suited to families with children, and groups. We were able to fully relax knowing that the pool had a mesh fence to keep little ones out (this can be removed). The downstairs really lends itself to family living with an open plan kitchen dining and living space, this leads out onto the patio via 2 x double doors. The patio does provide good shade during the day, we also made use of the gas BBQ. We found it was great to have use of a bed-guard for our 3 year old, and a toddler toilet seat, there was also a small table and chairs which our 2 children loved to use. We all slept well the beds were nice and comfortable; there was plenty of storage space drawers and wardrobes etc. The kitchen was well equipped and the appliances were very good quality and easy to use. There is also an upstairs lounge which is beautiful. I would not hesitate to recommend this villa to anyone else. We would definitely love to stay again.

“Everything you could want for a villa holiday - wonderful” The villa is stuning. It has views of the sea and is walking distance of both a couple of restaurants and the beach. All four double bedrooms are a good size and all air conditioning worked on demand throughout the villa for the whole stay (that has never happened before!) It was well equiped. The marina is approximately 20 minutes walk away, with more restaurants. The beach in walking distaance is a small cove with crystal clear waters and a lovely beach restaurant, our favourite of the holiday. Would go back tomorrow.

“Perfect apartment and location for young children and adults alike” We stayed here for 3 weeks over the end of May and June, and had a different set of grandchildren and their parents for each week. Childrens ages ranged from 6 to 1! The apartment was everything it promised to be. It was spotlessly clean - in fact appeared to be brand new and never inhabited, although this was not the case. Sandra was an excellent person to greet us and she has very high standards of cleaning such apartments. The rooms were spacious and cool, as was the balcony, and every possible amenity was provided - from DVD's for all ages, coffee making machine, beach towels etc. The cot and high chair were good quality, in fact the apartment, pool etc was extremely child friendly and safe. Location to nearby beach, town, shops and restaurants was brilliant and prices were reasonable in the town. Sandra and Kim were most accommodating regarding changing of bed linen towels etc as our dates were not exactly standard, and the apartment was cleaned at the end of each week.

“Wonderful spacious apartment” Wonderful, very spacious apartment ,modern very clean bathrooms wonderful showers,fantastic aircon ,pool very inviting, everything you could need for self catering is here everything is brand new , owner very helpful with any questions you need answers to , only problem we found was that in all honesty its not near anything, apart from the golf courses that is, it is more like 30mins walk to beach/marina/supermarkets so a little too far in that heat and also quite a remote road from here to the main road to villamora , so a car is a must really as it will be 10 euros for a cab one way , also we found that the cabs had trouble finding the apartment when called , also just a small detail that the owner said he will remedy soon is that there were only two sunbeds, so in all a great place for a very quiet break away,teenagers will need more to do than stay here unless its peace and quiet they want too. Wont say anything about marina etc as its all there and much fun can be had by all , just stay away from the Liana boat trip its overbooked and most of the boat seating is inside very cramped and was more like a very cheap ferry ,they also say dolphins can be seen but the last time anyone did on that boat was years ago , they dont go far enough out to sea for that so dont be fooled, your better off doing the Excite dolphin safari really good fun and defo worth it wonderful seeing them in the sea .

“CASA BRANCO - Fantastic, Clean, Spacious Apartment” Casa Branco exceeded all our requirements and Club Albuferia was a lovely complex with lots of green areas and play areas for small children and activities for bigger children. The restaurants and snack bars were very good and Albuferia is a lovely town with cobbled streets and a picturesque beach. I would recommend the apartment and complex as an ideal summer holiday destination and I cannot fault the service I received from Complete Holiday Homes who were very competent and helpful.

Villas and apartments in Algarve

Why Algarve?

This popular holiday destination has sunshine by the bucket and spade load. The Blue Flag beaches, watersports and activities for kids make the Algarve a fantastic choice for a fun-filled family break. From the lively resorts near the beach to the cobbled streets and whitewashed houses in the villages, the Algarve has something for everyone. And with a three hour flight time from the UK, getting there is a breeze.

Soak up the sun on the terrace at a self-catering apartment or enjoy the space of a luxury villa in the Algarve for your next holiday.

Things to do from your villas in Algarve

One of the best ways to see the natural beauty of the Algarve coastline is with a visit to the Ponta da Piedade. The weathered cliffs, rock pillars, natural tunnels and hidden grottos are stunning. Join a boat trip and let your captain navigate through the rocky formations and view the magnificent cliffs from the sea. The shops, restaurant and lighthouse at the peak of the cliffs are also well worth a visit. There are so many beautiful beaches here you'll be spoilt for choice - Praia Gale, Meia Praia and Tavira Island to name but a few - so if you love a beach holiday, the Algarve will certainly not disappoint.

There are so many attractions here you'll want to come back year after year. Some highlights include the Slide & Splash Water Park in Lagoa, Zoomarine Algarve in Guia and the atmospheric and historical Cerro da Vila in Vilamoura.

Food & drink in Algarve

When you're not cooking up your own culinary creations in your self-catering holiday home, there are plenty of tempting places to eat and drink in the Algarve. Enjoy some traditional Portuguese which usually involves fresh fish and shellfish. The national dish is "bacalhau" (dried, salted cod) and the classic "caldeirada" (fish stew) is a thing of wonder. Grilled sardines and horse mackerel are popular in the coastal towns and meat eaters should try the "cozido à portuguesa", a thick stew of vegetables with meat. “Leitão assado" (roast suckling pig) is popular in the north of the country, as are pork sausages called "chouriço" or "linguiça."

Casa Gonzaga
Great place

What a lovely villa. We stayed as a party of 8 and couldn't fault it. Very spacious. Had everything you needed. Bars and shops close by. Will definitely return:) … see more
Villa Teresa
Great location

A group of 12 ladies stayed at your villa for 4 nights in June 2018. We were greeted on arrival by Miguel who was very helpful, friendly and informative.The safe was not working correctly, Miguel said he would come back and fix it, he did not, it was not a problem to us so I did not chase him up. The villa is situated in a brilliant location just of the main strip in the new town of Albuferia. We had a lovely stay, the villa we found quite basic but extremely clean. We had a few problems with one collapsing bed which we resolved ourselves. On point I would make, the villa is reported to sleep 14 people, but the dining area only catered for 6 people around the table. All in all, we had an enjoyable time, and would use Columbia Estates again.see more
Praia Village - Apt AO
Great apartment, fantastic location !

The location could not be better with both Falesia Beach & Vilamoura Marina (with it's shops & restaurants) just a short walk away, it also benefits from a supermarket cafe, bar & restaurants even closer by if you just don't feel like venturing out. The apartment itself is both well equipped & well presented & the grounds & pool are well maintained with plenty of space to catch some rays.Paul & Tanya could not have been more helpful during our stay & were always at hand to answer any questions we had, would not hesitate to recommend & look forward to visiting again.see more
CASA BEMPOSTA - Farmhouse
Great Stay!

Nice location, great views, kind owners, good communication, english spoken, very service oriented! Élia waited for us in Monchique to guide us to the farmhouse at 1:30AM because our trip from Faro had been delayed! Warm welcome with wine and bread for next days breakfast. We did nice walks in the area (Foia mountain = 905m!) and visited lovey restaurants, enjoyed the local food. We are visiting soon again!see more
Loule, Sta Barbara Nexe, Mountain Monte villa
Beautiful villa

Set in a secluded location away from other properties, so all you can hear is birdsong, but still only a five minute drive into the local town. It has an immaculately kept spacious, mature garden and a large well heated pool. Fantastic views from the villa, roof terrace and shaded seating area. Inside is airy and large for a three bed villa, spotlessly clean with a modern kitchen, comfortable beds, walk in shower and fast reliable Wifi. Highly recommend this place - we regularly rent villas in the Algarve and Med, and this is one of the best we’ve been to.see more
