The place was clean and tidy. Lovely view from the balcony. Right near the beach. Beds were comfortable. Only thing was the aircon struggled to get below 24c in the bedrooms. And would have been nice to have had aircon in the lounge. But apart from that. I would return as lovely area And place.
Excellent location & property with great terrace
We had a great week at this cottage in old town Albufeira. A very well equipped kitchen allowed us to eat in often and the roof terrace with views of sea is excellent for sun bathing and meal times with sunshine from morning till night. The location for all the old town amenities is excellent too, however, should mention the lack of parking near by and the steep hill to the property.
Thank you Jim
The best of that area is to be central and guests do not need to rent a car.
The steep hill to the property gives the advantge of amaging views.
Hope to see you and your wife again.
A Little Gem -
We stayed at the property for 7 days and it was wonderful. Superb location, near everything but also very tranquil.
The property was lovely, clean and tidy and had everything you would need (toilet paper, shampoo, sun cream, washing up liquid, tea and coffee etc, and Filomena also left lovely biscuits and some delicious wine her that friend had produced.
Had a great little terrace on the roof which had sun for most of the day (and lovely shade when needed!) with sun loungers, table and chairs, very handy washing line and a lovely view of the sea which is such a bonus.
Thank you Filomena and your daughter for the the warm welcome and for the use of your lovely apartment for our week long holiday in Albufeira.
Thank you very much Megan and family, was a pleasure to have you as guests at Casa do Avo.
Hope to see you again in future.
Lovely location, close to beach, shops and restaurants. The property was immaculate.
The property was kitted out with everything we needed and more. The owner was most helpful and kind. The location was perfect for us as we had everything on the doorstep which made for a perfect holiday.
Thank you Eillen and Maire, hope to see again.
Heerlijk vakantiehuis met echt alles.
Wij hebben genoten van ons verblijf. Eerst was ik een beetje scepties. Ik had over Homeaway wat slechte ervaringen gehoord in die zin, dat mensen op bestemming komen en het huis niet bestaat. Echter na een telefoongesprek met Homeaway werd mijn twijfel bijna helemaal weggenomen. Als je betaald via Homeaway dan is je koopsom beschermd. Mocht het huis echt niet bestaan dan zullen zij voor een ander passend huis zorgen. Maar terug naar het huis. Het heeft echt alles. Zelf strandlakens. Kluis, wasmachine, airco, oven, inductie, magnetron, toaster, koelkast en vriezer. In de vriezer ligt een koelelement. Handig voor in je koeltas. Mooi groot dakterras met uitzicht op de zee. Wij verbleven bijna 2 weken in deze woning en halverwege de week werd ons huis netjes schoongemaakt. Filomena is een aardige en behulpzame vrouw. Bij een vragen tijdens ons verblijf kon ik haar een sms'je sturen en kreeg altijd snel antwoord terug. In het kort ideale ligging en prachtig huis.
Thank you very much, Ymkje for your review
Hope to see you and your husband again.
We really enjoyed our stay. The location was great, very quiet yet close to the beach. The apartment had everything we needed, and the roof terrace was an added bonus.
I would love to stay again, and will certainly recommend it to friends and family.
Filomena was very helpful, and made our arrival and departure extremely easy.
Thank you Jane and Rosemary for your kind words.
Will be my pleasure to have you again as guests at Casa do Avo.
Just on the top of the cliffs of Albufeira beach, 5 minutes walk.
10 mins drive away are Oura, Gale, Salgados and São Rafael beaches as well as a number of sandy coves that are a little quieter. High surfing, paragliding, water skiing, jet skiing, scuba diving and snorkling. Albufeira Marina offers many boat trips which is the best way to see the beautiful coastline.
The cottage is just 30 minutes drive away from Faro airport. Car hire is not necessary.
The newly built harbour and marina is just 10 minutes walk from the cottage where boating and fishing equipment can be rented out. Excursions on yachts, motorboats or catamarans to view the caves all along the coast to the "end of the world" at Sagres, are offered locally.
Kids will be thrilled to see the numerous theme parks ranging from Zoomarine to The Big One or Krazy World, all within 15 minutes coach drive away.
