2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6
Albufeira, Faro District, Algarve
This lovely 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom villa is located on the excellent Balaia Golf Village between Albufeira and Vilamoura. It is superbly located in the centre of the complex overlooking one of the pools with easy access to all the facilities but with plenty of space around it for the kids to play! It is a single storey property located at ground level, so is ideal for families with young children as there are no stairs or balconies. There are 2 private patios complete with outside furniture and barbecue.

The property is AIR CONDITIONED with full climate control to provide cooling in the summer and heating in the winter. Both bathrooms and the kitchen have been modernised in recent years.

Reviewed 1 week ago for a stay in June 2017

This villa must rate among the best self-catering holiday accommodation I have ever experienced. From the moment you walk in the door it feels like a home rather than a holiday rental. The furnishings and decor are perfect and the villa contains everything you are ever going to need - the only thing you are asked to provide is beach...
