A very large and spacious property with excellent facilities located in a quiet suburb of Albufreira

  • 5 of 5

Booked this villa for 15 Guests, the photos are an accurate representation of the villa's condition. The agents handling the booking were very responsive via both email and via the HomeAway phone app. On arrival picked up keys as instructed, the cleaners hadn't quite finished but we stored our cases and went exploring. The villa was cleaned to a very high standard and there were enough toiletries/cleaning materials left to get us going. It's a 10 minute walk to the Intermarche supermarket which has a reasonable range of food and drinks. It's a 15 minute walk to the top of the strip (quieter end) and can highly recommend Restaurtante O Leao and Jardim Rustico with both great service and great food without braking the bank and both dealt with the large party without any issues. The local agents were great, with Teresa visiting us once we had settled in, who showed us how everything worked and gave advice about the local area and again was very responsive to questions and getting things sorted. We opted to use the pool heating, this worked extremely well (and quickly) but had to get it turned down since the weather was pretty warm anyway and there is a pool cover to help retain the heat overnight. There is WiFi but this can be a little slow if everyone's phones were logged onto it, and not fast enough to stream video if you wanted to catch up on News/favourite soaps etc., but OK for downloading emails, doing social media etc. The games area (garage/pool room) were a nice addition and provided alternatives to lounging by the pool. There were plenty of sunbeds (enough for everyone) as well as a new wall mounted sun blind adjacent to the pool and a new wooden canopy with partial shading over the first floor balcony outside the kitchen. There was a trestle table and benches located in the garage which could be set up to allow us all to eat outside in the evenings. The location is quiet (which is what we wanted) but you are not too far from restaurants /bars (15 mins) and is a near 1 hour walk from the Old Town so I'd recommend using a taxi or car to visit here. The Beach at Oura is a 30 minute walk along the strip. Everyone had a fantastic time at this villa. There are a lot of horror stories about booking villa's online and this was the first time we had done this and were a little apprehensive, however the whole process from booking, confirmation and whilst we were there went without any hitches and I can highly recommend this property

Excellent week at Villa Ritzy

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time at this villa, facilities were truly top notch – especially enjoyed the great pool-side area! Rooms are a great size and there is more than enough indoor and outdoor area for 18 people.

A nice touch was the provided table tennis table, table football table and pool table, all with the required equipment.

The villa is a very short walk (<15 minutes) from the main Strip in Albufeira and is very close to supermarkets / off-licences etc. Taxis from Faro airport were very reasonable.

All in all a great holiday – thanks Villa Ritzy!

Zeer groot huis met veel faciliteiten

  • 3 of 5

Het is een prettig en groot huis en we troffen het zeer schoon aan. Grote kamers veel badkamers en recreatiemogelijkheden als tafeltennis en tafelvoetbal en pooltafel in de kelder. De bedden laten echter te wensen over. De afwikkeling met de waarborgsom verliep niet vlekkeloos. Verder een prima huis voor een groep of gezin tot 10 personen met een goed (eventueel verwarmd) zwembad.

Prachtig groot huis met alles erop en eraan

  • 5 of 5

Wij zijn in deze villa geweest met 2 gezinnen en opa en oma. Het huis was heerlijk groot huis, met grote woonkamer, eetkamer en woonkeuken (voorzien van alle gemakken). Vanaf het terras bij de woonkeuken, kijk je uit over het zwembad (met diep en ondiep gedeelte). Alles is heel erg schoon. Wat heel fijn was dat er strandlakens in het huis waren, er een wasmachine was en er regelmatig nieuwe handdoeken gebracht werden. Dat maakt het vliegen met alleen handbagage wel makkelijk.

Tegenover het huis zijn ook voldoende vrije parkeerplaatsen.

In een kwartiertje loop je naar de Strip.

Tip: je kan 3 verschillende voedselpakketjes bestellen (brood, kaas, vleeswaren, water, bier etc), mocht je laat aankomen. Ideaal. Al met al een aanrader.
