Villa Borromeo, Albufeira, Algarve

Property ref: PA154

This stunning beach front villa is set in an almost unrivalled position on the cliffs above a beautiful beach which has good restaurants and is part of the larger Praia d'Oura Beach.  It is one of the exclusive villas built on the clifftop, between Praia da Oura and Santa Eulalia There is direct, private access to the beach from the gardens via a gate, steps and a stile. Just below the villa, there are 2 beach restaurants and the beach has sun beds and life guards.

This is a large private estate and the property is next door to Villa da Mare though they have individual private entrances. There is a gate in the garden for guests wishing to book both properties, otherwise they remain private and independent from each other.

The villa enjoys complete privacy and it is difficult to believe it is just a short walk from Santa Eulália with its variety of restaurants and bars. The popular Areias de São João is also close by making this a good choice for groups which include teenagers, although many clients rarely leave this idyllic spot and choose instead to stock up at the local supermarket.

The views from the garden of Villa Borromeo are truly amazing. There is a central courtyard and the landscaped garden has lawns, flower beds and three rock pools (one with jacuzzi) cascading into the fabulous swimming pool below. The horizon pool is banked by colourful rockeries, has a gentle shallow, sloped, access and when viewed from the garden, seems to fall away into the sea beyond.

The accommodation is in three sections; the main house, the courtyard on the first floor and the patio room both with external access from the entrance courtyard.

There is an independent annexe, with two bedrooms, just behind the main entrance. This may be available on request.

NB For those with walking difficulties, the main Santa Eulalia beach is just a short drive and has good disabled access.

Please note, the pool does not have a pool cover so we cannot guarantee the temperature.

Weddings & parties may be accepted at this house on request.  Venue hire fees will apply.  Please ask us for details.

Mrs G. "Just wanted to say that we all had such a wonderful holiday!!! Borromeo was the perfect villa in every way, we just loved it…. The view is to die for (I am missing it SO much) the garden is beautiful & much admired by the gardeners in our party!  The accommodation is excellent & worked well for all the family & we liked the space (in the house & the garden) that allowed some private areas etc. The children thought the pool with the surrounding rocks was great for jumping in & the two little ones, aged 4 & 6 gained a lot of confidence with their swimming! Having the little path to the beach was a winner, we felt very privileged indeed; and falling asleep at night to the sound of the surf/sea is so special!! When my husband was taken ill on the first morning, Alistair & Helena were both wonderful with help & support….fortunately he made a full recovery, & we went on to all have a really fantastic time together.   I shall certainly tell all my friends what a great place it is & thank you all for your help & guidance with the booking etc."  

Mr S.  "We had a wonderful time. The villa was exquisite, and the manager went far beyond the call of duty to please us. A large "thank you" from us to him when you two speak. Enjoying a jacuzzi while watching the sunset over the Atlantic is a wonderful experience. We plan to return again next year. After last year's experience, we were not sure that we would be as happy when the novelty wore off. It turns out we were happier! It was like coming home to an old friend."

Ms P  "It was the most amazing place to arrive at and as we looked around the properties it just got better and better. Thank you for a great holiday".

Mrs M.  "We've just returned from a week's holiday at Borromeo and would just like to say what an absolutely fabulous place we thought it was.  We forgot to complete the holiday questionnaire as we were rushing off but just wanted to let you know it was amazing and hopefully we'll be going back next year if poss for a bit longer!

Mr V  " The villa Borromeo was excellent! Beautiful house and garden, close to the beach, well equipped. Some of us didn't leave the property until after 4 days!

Mr M  "A pleasure as always. The views from the villa were stunning, absolutely stunning. "

Mr H "As a frequent visitor to the Algarve, I was delighted to discover Borromeo. The villa and gardens are just as stunning as they appear on your website, and the cliff top position with direct access to the beach really made our holiday. We will be back. Thank you for creating wonderful memories."

Mrs P "Dear Villa Agency Team, Thanks very much for recommending such a gorgeous and well appointed villa. We really enjoyed our stay at Borromeo, loved the direct sea views, infinity pool, beach restaurants and will be booking again next year. BTW the restaurant at Villa Joya was out of this world - again, thanks so much for your advice on the right place to celebrate".

Mr W "Borromeo for me is captured by only a very simple description and that is ‘nirvana’. I haven’t historically been one for sitting poolside, but finding myself under Borromeo’s poolside tree overlooking the coast whilst others wafted in and out of the house and kitchen worked brilliantly. The house interior feels like home without trying too hard to impress and the gardens and views give a sense of elevation that is more than just a physical. They also provide direct access to two great restaurants that are perfect for lunch and beaches to swim from. In short, if only I could afford such a holiday home".

Mrs H "We have had the best time here in Borromeo!!"


Albufeira, Algarve

Discover Albufeira...

Things we love
"Albufeira is a great location for families and young groups with lots of activities and nightlife in the livelier parts. There are also some of the prettiest beaches in the Algarve here and plenty of quieter areas for those who want a more relaxing vibe, like Vale de Parra. Choosing villa rental in Albufeira is by far the best way to enjoy this exciting region. Some of our most loved villas to rent are in this area and we have clients that return year after year."
Things to be aware of
"Some of the resorts in this area can become crowded in the peak season and Albufeira beach can be busy in the summer. With so many beaches and coves along the coast road, it is well worth exploring to find your new favourite beach. The Atlantic can be a little cooler than the Mediterranean so it is a good idea to pack or hire wetsuits if you want to surf or enjoy prolonged swims. It is also a good idea to book ahead if you want to eat out as the restaurants can get busy."
