“Amazing villa - perfect for a large group!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We stayed at casa vida for one week in early June and had a great time. When we arrived at the villa we were met by Mel who was very helpful and gave us a full tour as well as some hints and tips for our stay. The villa was in an immaculate condition, very clean and superbly presented and above all else was huge and had everything we could wish for so even though we were a large party of ten there was always plenty of room and things to do.

The pool was very large and it was brilliant to have the additional children's pool attached, best of all was the discovery of the 2 childs safety jackets for the pool and the array of outdoor toys. There were also numerous sun beds and plenty of outside dining space which came in very handy for the barbecues we had. The games room was also well utilised and my four year old son loved the fact he could still play the wii on holiday!

The villa is approximately 30 mins walk from the old town which has numerous shops and restuarants and about 45 mins from the strip if you walk quite fast so is in a great position far enough away from the crowds but still well within walking distance of everything.

Clube albufeira also has its own swimming pools, small supermarket and a friendly reception who helped us organise a game of golf while we were there.

Overall we had a fantastic time and would love to come back one day, we loved the villa and also loved albufeira. Thank you Beverley for allowing us to use your home and have such a lovely family holiday as a result.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

even before our arrival we had our transfers arranged and,car hire sorted. When we arrived at the villa we were even taken food shopping.the on site management team were excellent,nothing was a problem for them.the villa itself was as new and had been well looked after.All the rooms were well furnished and spotlessly clean.everybody enjoyed the pool especially the children.The outside BBQ and patio dining area were well used.As we have been to this area quite a few times it was an ideal base to go out for a meal or shopping and the best beaches are only 5 mins away by car.The best part of our holiday was the villa as you had every thing you needed and you could have stayed there without feeling the need to go out.We will certainly be recommending this villa to our friends and family.

“Fantastic villa with fantastic facilities for a perfect holiday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

The villa was of a high standard throughout. The photos do not do it justice. We were a group of 12 with an age range of 16-80 and we all enjoyed it. Although there are other swimming pools on the complex, we stayed at the villa for the majority of the time to relax. The villa was a 10 minute drive from "the square" in the old town and well placed to visit Vilamoura, Algarve shopping and the water-parks. The owner (Bev) was very helpful and provided us with lots of useful information about the villa and our holiday in general, and answered any queries. Our contact at the villa (Mel) was very helpful. Would definitely go again. MP

“Perfect villa, peaceful relaxing surroundings”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We chose Casa Vida on the Clube Albufeira complex for a family holiday consisting of 3 generations. 7 adults & 3 children aged 10-14.
It looked the perfect place and it turned out to be just that.
We had a great time. The villa was exceptionally clean and spacious and very well equipped.
Outside has a lovely pool (covered to keep heat in) a spacious patio area with plenty of sunbeds and a very nice shaded area for family meals. The bbq and cooking facilities were also very good. It was in very peaceful surroundings with great privacy and security.
We had hire cars (for which Beverley the owner arranged a quote for us) it was nice to be able to go out and about and see a little of the area.
The children really enjoyed Slide and splash water park which was a great day out.
The Old Town was about a 40 min walk, but a lovely walk nonetheless. For the less energetic in the party it was only a 10 min drive where the beach was beautiful; there were bars and restaurants in abundance and many gift shops.
Cars would not be a necessity as there are 4 communal pools with bars and restaurants on the complex. Again the food was very good and certainly not overpriced. (Meals ranged from €8 - €12).
Going in may half term holiday I had expected everywhere to be quite busy; however this was not the case - it was very peaceful with a very pleasant friendly atmosphere.
As we had a Friday evening flight we arranged hotel accommodation just 5 mins from Faro airport. The Hotel Monaco. This was again very clean with large rooms, a nice bar and breakfast included all for €160 for the 10 of us. (2 triple rooms and 2 twins).
Finally a big thankyou to Beverley who was very helpful and gave us lots of information before we departed and also to Mel who keeps an eye on things on Beverleys behalf in the Algarve. Both were very accomodating and very competent in all aspects of our holiday.
Most relaxing holiday I have had in years.

“Fantastic, spacious and well equipped villa - perfect for a family holiday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Casa Vida is a large, well laid out, beautifully presented property. Very well equipped for our group of 8 adults, one toddler and a baby.

Loads of seating options indoors and out, amazing BBQ and large well-kept pool. Very secure with electric shutters (double as great black out blinds for the kids!) and a safe in the villa.

Great communications from the owner throughout and a thoroughly enjoyable say had by all the party. May well stay again next year!

“The villa was exceptional, a real home from home.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

The villa was just what we expected, clean, well furnished and everything we needed for a relaxing holiday. There were 12 of us including 4 teenagers and there was enough room not to be on top of each other. We did not use the complex much as the villa pools were very good and there was enough room outside for the boys to play ball games too. The walk to Albufeira was a good 25 mins but it is along a proper path and away from the main road. Beverley was extremely helpful and arranged for our transport to and from the airport so we did not have to worry about anything, just turn up, relax and enjoy ourselves, which we all did.
