About Filipa Mendonca
This is my parents house, and i`ts were i spent most of my youth. I`ve went to study Architecture in Lisbon, and there lived and worked for the past 17 years. Now i`ve returned home, to the sunny Algarve. I`ll be the one to recieve you and doing the maintenance of the Garden and Pool of the Villa. Also, i`ll be nearby to provide any assistence you may need during your stay!
Filipa Mendonca purchased this Villa in 1980
Why Filipa Mendonca chose Montechoro
Casa Refi is located in a peaceful urbanization, however its very close to the centre of Albufeira, all its lovely beaches and all the shops and servicing, families need to manage their day-to-day.
What makes this Villa unique
Casa Refi has all the commodities you need on our vacation! AC, satellite TV, private pool, barbecue area and games room. It`s located in a quiet area but close to supermarkets, restaurants, bars and local shops. Easy and fast access to the nearest beaches and Golf courses.
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
Perfect Holiday Villa
We stayed here for a week as a group of 8 friends and it was absolutely perfect. Only a short walk to the strip (make sure you visit Filipa's restaurant for a burger and a cocktail!) and to the closest supermarket. The villa itself is very spacious, clean, and has everything you could ask for with a large pool which gets the sun most of the day and a big games room. Filipa was also always on hand to answer any queries and was a great help in organising airport taxi's etc. Would definitely visit again.
Hey Megan and friends,
Thanks so much for your review.
So glad you enjoyed the villa and also the cocktails. You were a very nice group that I was happy to meet.
Hope to have you again with us sometime soon.
Great pool and owner
Lovely spacious property. Filipa the owner couldn't have been more helpful. The only negative thing was that the showering facilities could do with bringing up to date. Very handy location,approximately 10 minutes to the strip.
Thank you your review.
We will keep in mind your comments so we can make the future guests stay even more pleasant.
Regards to all the family and hope to have you with us again soon.
Amazing holiday in this beautiful villa
I have nothing negative to say about our stay in this villa. What I did notice was that the property is much more beautiful in real life than on the pictures. The pool was the best and the barbecue with a nice sitting area beneath a lemon tree made our dinners very special. Filipa is such a kind woman, she would be only one phone call away whenever a small problem or question would come op. If you are looking for a nice villa to stay in in Albufeira, which is only a 10 mins walk away from the strip, yet in a very calm area, this really is the place. My friends and I loved our stay here and if we ever were to return to Albufeira, Filipa will be the first to hear!
Dear Papatya and Friends,
Thank you so mutch for your review. I am very happy to know you enjoy your stay.
You were also great guests and i hope you do come back!
Groeten to you all!
Spacious and neat vila in at a nice location
We had a fantastic week at the vila with our friends.
The vila is very spacious, has a very clean swimming pool, and big bedrooms and bathrooms. Also the basement offers some great entertainment with a ping-pong table and a pool table. We enjoyed our stay and couldn't wish for a better vila.
Everything we needed was available in this more traditional villa. Filipa was on hand to help with any queries and was always cheerful and professional. Excellent location - only a few minutes walk to good bars and restaurants and The Strip. On the one or two days when we had indifferent weather the games room was a welcome diversion.
Great family holiday
We had a great family holiday in Casa Refi. We had 8 adults and 2 children but still had plenty of space in this large villa. The villa is located in a quiet residential area, but is 10 minutes walk to the Montechero strip, should you want a more lively night out. We spent most of our holiday in the villa, either by the swimming pool, playing table tennis or billiards, everyone had a great time. At night we sat out for dinner at the barbeque under the lemon tree, which was perfect for us. The toilets and bedrooms were all spacious and clean, the air conditioning was an added bonus. Filipa was a great help and was always available to take a phonecall. We had a brilliant time and would definitely go back. Thanks again Filipa.
