“Rustic, Spacious Villa close to the Old Town”
Reviewed September 8, 2016 for a stay in August 2016
3
people found this review helpful

We stayed here at the end of August with my 9 and 17 year old. It has everything you could need for a family. 4 bedrooms with ample space for a group of 6 or 7. The interior is spotless with old varnished floorboards throughout joined by period tiles and stone staircase. The best thing in my opinion is the garden at the rear of the property. This is a real oasis and was a lovely place to have breakfast or an evening drink

Although I would recommend this property I have to point out one negative which is the noise from holiday revellers at night. While it is located away from the hustle and bustle it is still on a main route to the Old Town and Beach. The bedrooms at the back of the property are not affected as badly as the front rooms. It wouldn't be a problem off-season I would suggest.

Carlos is a very courteous host, made us feel welcome straight away and was helpful with places of interest and could always be contacted if need be.

“Large beautiful authentic house”
Reviewed August 7, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

people found this review helpful

The house was even nicer than the pictures on the website. Carlos the owner met us at the house and helped is to settle in, giving us lots of helpful advise and information on thing to do and see. There were lots of little extras in the house when we arrived i.e. a bowl of fruit, water, shampoo, shower gel,soap etc.
The steps to the beach were literally outside the front door, 5 mins and you were on the beach. You have the best of both worlds where the house is situated, 5/10 mins walk to the left is the shops/restaurants and the square where there is constant entertainment in the evening. This is perfect for all families, young and old. Further on down is a strip of nightclubs and entertainment for the young adults. 10 Minutes walk to the right of the house brings you to the Marina, where there are tons of water sports/activities to be had. I found people very helpful and friendly.

“Rustic villa near the beach”
Reviewed October 9, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

person found this review helpful

My friends and I rented this home in Albufeira and were pleased with our choice. The home owner Carlos was very friendly and accommodating, providing us with copias tid bits on places to eat, party and buy groceries. The home was built in 1901 and had a great deal of character and charm, perfectly situated walking distance from the beach, bars, restaurants and quaint little convenience stores for those last minute essentials. We had a great stay and would recommend this place to any of our friends and family.. The home is without a doubt a hidden gem.

Love Albufeira!

“A gem of a place to stay, wish we had booked for longer!”
Reviewed August 14, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

I stayed there with 4 teenagers, you do not need air conditioning as the house remains cool at night. The boys loved the courtyard which is very large and private and refused to even head to the beach! Only thing missing from the well equipped house was an oven to make pizzas (teenagers!) but Carlos is a wonderful host and the house is full of charm and tradition, highly recommend a stay there and we shall definitely return :)

“Beautiful villa, great location and perfect host.”
Reviewed July 23, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

I stayed at the Red & Yellow villa with 5 female friends at the beginning of July. I am quite fussy when it comes to accommodation, but this was exactly what we were looking for. The villa was clean, comfortable and with easy reach of everything. The villa has a lovely artisan feel to it, light, airy and spacious so your not all on top of one another. Carlos was very helpful, and kindly provided us some fresh fruit and water for our arrival. The beach is only a 2min walk, and the town square is only 5mins, your not so close that you here all the noise but close enough to come and go as you please. The terrace/courtyard is wonderful, just wish we had spent more time here.

“Wonderful spacious traditional town house by the sea!”

person found this review helpful

On arrival we were met by Carlos who was very hospitable and friendly, he immediately made us feel at home and assured us he was only a phone call away if we needed anything.

The house is extremely spacious with high ceilings and lots of traditional features. It was well equipped and clean with free wifi, plenty of towels, crockery etc.

The courtyard garden is also very spacious with tables, chairs and sun loungers. It is very private and has the sun for most of the day.

The house is in a brilliant location. It is a short walk from a lift that takes you down to the beautiful beach and a short walk to the old town of Albufeira which has got a good selection of restaurants and bars.
