Location description from owner

The Algarve region

The Algarve's beaches, ranked among the best in the world, are close by. The famous Galè beach is at only 4km and has fine golden sand and stretches for several kilometers. Several smaller and more secluded beaches, so typical of the Algarve, are even closer (a 10 min. drive) and allow you to change settings every day. The beaches are clean, safe and well preserved, and most have a cozy bar or restaurant.

For shopping and nightlife Albufeira's city centre is at close range, about 10 min. by car or taxi. As a favorite tourist destination of many Europeans, it offers a very wide range of shops, restaurants, bars and nightclubs. Despite its popularity Albufeira's Old Town has maintained a notable charm, and strolling the pedestrian streets and beachfront walks is a pleasant experience.

The villa is also perfectly situated for golf lovers. The Algarve has countless golf courses and some are among the best in Europe. The Salgados Golf is within 5km of the villa and is reputed for its soft dunes and nature reserve.

“Fantastic vacation, lovely house, great surroundings.”

Reviewed 27 Jul 2015

We had a fantastic couple of days in Casa da Encosta. The house was very well positioned between the town and the beach, with plenty of opportunities to explore the surrounding areas. It was very welcoming inside, with the open and airy living room with an open fireplace (even though it was warm enough, just the sight of one always feels cosy), and the dining area accessible from all the other rooms. Bed- and bathrooms were all very nice, cosy without becoming cramped. The kitchen was superbly outfitted, with everything spotless and well taken care of. The terrace and garden, and especially the pool (beautiful infinity pool!) were excellent for enjoying a bit of sun and peace. All in all, we had a fantastic vacation in Guia, and will gladly visit here again!

“lovely villa, stunning views, great pool.”

Reviewed 6 Jul 2015

Had an amazing 10 days, never got bored of the view, villa very well equipped. Excellent location, quiet area, good shopping at the algarve centre. The owner, Vee, was very helpful and quickly responded to emails. Good size pool, well kept garden and very clean. Definitely 10 out of 10.
