Villa da Mare, Albufeira, Algarve

Property ref: PA281

This stunning beach front villa is set in an almost unrivalled position on the cliffs above a beautiful beach which has a good restaurant 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 Borromeo  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.

Villa da Mare has stylish, comfortable living accommodation spilling onto the wide terrace. The sea view is so breath-taking that it has to be seen to be believed and can be enjoyed from most of the property. If the wall to wall terrace doors are open, there is a gentle sea breeze and you can hear the sound of the waves lapping on the shore below.

The villa is particularly spacious with a wide entrance hall leading into the main living area. There is an enormous open-plan kitchen with a breakfast bar, large dining table for ten and further comfortable seating, all aspects of this room take full advantage of the panoramic views. A home cinema is set at the back of the living area and is soundproofed for maximum enjoyment.

A circular stone staircase leads down to the bedrooms, all of which have en-suite bath or shower rooms.

There is a barbecue, poolside kitchen and dining area with a covered terrace. The pretty garden has a lawn and small wooden deck overlooking the beach and ocean. The swimming pool, which can be heated, has a built-in Jacuzzi.

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

Santa Eulália with its variety of restaurants and bars is just a short walk away which is difficult to believe when staying at Villa da Mare as it is quite private, other than the occasional sound of holidaymakers further along the beach. The popular Areias de São João is also close by making this a good choice for groups which include teenagers, although many clients hardly leave this idyllic spot and choose instead to stock up at the local supermarket.

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 Tierney.  Aug 21.  Read Truspilot Review

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 P J "As a couple, staying with another 2 couples, we very much enjoyed our first Portuguese holiday, staying at Villa da Mare.  The Villa is located close to a lovely beach which has a super restaurant, serving fresh local food, ideal for lunch.   Alternatively, for when you are feeling like using the excellent outdoor bbq at Villa da Mare, there is a decent enough supermarket, amongst a small town centre, only a short walk away. The bedrooms are nice sizes and ours was ensuite.  The kitchen is also a decent size and on the upper floor next to an open plan lounge/dining area, which in turn, opens out onto a patio, with a view to die for.  Absolutely perfect for that bbq dinner, or an aperitif before going out to dinner at one of a selection of nearby restaurants, only a short drive from Villa da Mare's location. We have fond memories of that holiday and lounging by the lovely pool, so much so, that we are again off to Portugal with The Villa Agency, baby in tow, this time!"

Mr R "The maid was good, flexible, non intrusive and helpful. Overall a fantastic villa and location. Couldn't be better. We will be back".


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."
