“Enchanted country side villa..........................”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

Portugal ,the Algarve is a sort out touristic area all round the year. I got the opportunity once again to escape to this beautiful south end destination,from visiting the Algarve several times in the past few years and knowing the few picturesque cities along its beautiful coast line. Albufeira is one of the few cities the boast an amazing all to see and do place ,during the day one can bask in the sun or take a walk along the bay side ,the evening one can choose from a vast variety of local restaurants to wine and dine.The night life is vibrant and exciting ! I managed to get a reservation at Quinta das Amendoeiras for my four day visit ,a privately owned property by Carlos & Maria. This beautiful villa is situated just on the outskirts of Albufeira. The villa boasts several spacious cottages which have been individually decorated in their own unique way ,has a beautiful pool & terrace which is outstandingly well kept. A very clean and peaceful place to stay.Maria & Carlos go out of their way to satisfy all needs that one would require ,i would recommend Quinta das Amendoeiras as a must to anyone who would be visiting the Algarve.

Lovely cluster of apartments in a quiet countryside setting, with pool, ample outdoor space for eating, cooking, sunbathing etc. attractive apartments both inside and out, very clean and well equipt. All amenities only a short drive away (restaurants-2mins, supermarket-1min, bustling town centre- 8 mins, beautiful beaches-10 mins). Proprietors often on site to assist with advice (good restaurants etc), anything you might need (new towels etc), helping run your BBQ, generally just keeping the guests happy and the area spotless.

We stayed here for one day, but wish we could have stayed longer. Our apartment was beautifully decorated and amazingly well equipped. Our hosts were very helpful and provided us with a cot for our baby. There is a pool and free wifi. The location is wonderful - away from the hustle of Albufeira, down a pretty country Lane. I would definitely return and recommend.

Friendly owner and a cat welcomed us.
Stayed at studio, it's really comfortable and well equipped facilities. The room is a bit cold in winter and slow Wifi, but not big issues. Close to supermarket, 3km from Albufeira centre.

I booked a long weekend here in December as a treat for my partners birthday. I was not disappointed!
Reviews mentioned that the hotel was hard to find, we entered the longitude and latitude (Which we were provided with after booking through booking.com) into our own personal sat nav and it took us straight there! About 30 minutes from Faro airport.
We arrived three hours earlier that check in and were greeted with a friendly smile and nothing was too much trouble, we were immediately shown our apartment.
We were given apartment 6 which had a lovely pink and purple theme throughout with lovely one of pieces of furniture throughout. I would describe the apartment as shabby chic, here was a small kitchen which included a large fridge/freezer, 2 hobs, a microwave, toaster, coffee machine and all the crockery and cutlery you could possibly need!
Maria the owner speaks good English and answered any questions that we had, when asking for directions she drew up a little map and pointed out restaurants for all pockets and that were authentic Portuguese. Maria even brought my partner some home made almond cake as a little treat for his Birthday :) So sweet!
The hotel is a 5-10 minute drive from albufiera, has ample parking and there is also a supermarket at the end of the road.

Everything you need is close by but you feel like your in the middle of nowhere! Perfect for relaxation! I highly recommend and will definitely be back!

Room Tip: They are all beautiful!

It is a very nice b&b, I will not add details compared with previous reviews. Nice apartments with all you need and a clean pool.
Shores and beaches are great and this can be a reasonable starting point to move and visit Algarve day by day. Really friendly atmosphere, the owners are just great ! Almonds are good too..

Some important tips: 1- Finding this place can be really difficult, Even with GPS!! Contact the owners before .... 2- try to avoid the Albufeira restaurants, the real Portoguese cuisine is different (ask to the owners) 3- car/motorbike is necessary in my opinion 4- check for noisy neighbors (apartments are not acoustically isolated!)

Room Tip: Ask to the owners! They will help you finding the best one

We stayed here in the middle of May and loved how cute the apartment and pool areas were. There where two bbq areas which we did use to cook on and was very nice to sit outside to eat. The owners where lovely and where very helpful giving us maps, restaurant recommendations and even homemade cake!

The only issue we had was that we ran out of hot water on the first night, we mentioned this and they where happy to move us if the problem persisted. We did realise that the water tank was very small so we limited our shower usage ( a little annoying when your shower goes cold half way through washing sand out of your long hair!) The shower was also not very powerful and not positioned well on the wall so it was easier to hold the shower head to wash.

The apartments are a little out of town, I would not have like to walk but we did get a taxi to the marina one evening and it only cost €6/7. We had a car and it took around 5 mins to drive but was very useful to explore the rest of the surrounding area.

We really enjoyed staying here and did cook with the facilities we had (two hobs & bbq!) there is a large supermarket nearby which was cheap. Our room was cleaned once during our weeks stay but i'm sure if we asked they would have cleaned it again. We would definitely stay here again but this place is in a peaceful away from it all setting which would not suit all. Also not for people looking for hotel type service, it suited us as it was cheap, basic and a good base to explore Albuferia.
