This lovely villa is tucked away down a quiet lane, set in a landscaped garden overlooking an unspoilt valley of farmland and orchards. Facing both south and west, its secluded location gives complete privacy, although there are neighbours, so Leão does not feel isolated. It would be difficult to find a more attractive exterior - paved terraces on different levels lead down to the pool terrace (care should be taken with very young children). Cool, marble floors lead from the main rooms to the shaded terrace with a large barbecue area at one end which has distant sea views.

The villa is a ten minute drive from numerous beaches and the centre of Albufeira and even nearer to Pateo and Guia with several good restaurants. The interior takes advantage of the lovely views down the valley with the coast in the distance. Each bedroom has a terrace or balcony overlooking the countryside. The well designed, fully equipped kitchen has a convenient breakfast area in addition to the formal dining room. The principal rooms are unusually light and spacious and the house is furnished with a mixture of local and Asian furniture.

Mrs Brenner. September 2023: Fabulous company to deal with as do I feel that I have a good relationship with The Villa Agency having used this company for a long time. Ginnie and the team are always brilliant when I contact them anbout annything. Always have a great time at the villa and feel like it’s a home from home. Trustpilot Review

Mr Hurkmans. Jul 2023: Perfect! For the third time our experience with The Villa Agency has been successful! The Villa Leao was just perfect: fully equipped, very cosy... you just felt home! Trustpilot Review

Mrs Aujla. July 2023: We had a fantastic week long stay at Casa Leao. The location of the villa is great easily accessible to the airport, villamoura and albufeira by car. The villa it self is beautiful with amazing views. The rooms are huge and the pool is massive also. The villa agency are very responsive to any issue we had and resolved them straight away. Would definitely stay again. Thanks Casa Leao!!

Mrs Brenner. Sept 22: We won't use another company!  I’ve been using The Villa Agency since about 2011. Always get an excellent service from the team. I won’t go anywhere else to be honest as they are trustworthy and understand all my needs for a thoroughly lovely holiday. The managers are lovely too. Trustpilot

Mrs Phillips Oct 21: The villa was so gorgeous, I am loathe to tell you about it in case it gets too booked up! We couldn't have wished for a better house to accommodate our party, which changed half way through.The master bedroom was fantastic and the en-suite was lovely. the second bedroom was also great. The two downstairs bedrooms were shady (this was late season so we weren't looking for shade!) but adequate. There were so many places to sit inside, we never felt on top of each other and we could always choose sun or shade in the many outside areas.We loved the barbecue terrace for pre-dinner drinks and ate outside every night, even at the end of October. Everyone commented on the huge outside dining table.There were a few niggles, like having to top up the dishwasher with salt and rinse aid and buy big bin bags, but this was soon forgotten in our appreciation of this great find!We had a fabulous meal at Quinta da Saudade and the owners gave us a huge bouquet for our anniversary. Jan, the house manager also gave us a bottle of champagne, which was an amazing thought.Throughout the process of booking and holidaying I was impressed with The Villa Agency. They were helpful at every stage, particularly during the uncertainties of the pandemic. Thank you so much, Ginnie!! Trustpilot

Mr Tinoco.  August 21.  Excellent service. Fast, reliable, the villas were clean and in very good conditions. A customer for the future, no doubts. Trustpilot

Mr Moore.  Sep 2019 - Another fantastic villa. Can not fault the villa, the price ,the location, the house manager and cleaners. We will be back next year. Trustpilot

Mr Edmondson.  Aug 2019 - Nothing was too much bother from the first enquiry to returning the security deposit after an amazing holiday! We did have a couple of problems with the villa which were addressed quickly. The villa was good value for money and the location was simply breath taking. We have used the villa agency many times and they have been great each and every time! Trustpilot

Mr K "Had a lovely stay in Casa Leao - already recommending it to our friends!"

Mr E, May  "Our holiday in Casa Leao was absoluteley fantastic. Love the new kitchen. The weather was perfect and nothing could have improved our short stay in Vale da Parra. Thank's again for your usual help in making our holiday's in the Algarve so unforgettable. Can't wait for our return in October to come around"

Mr E "We think the whole package is a credit to The Villa Agency - the best company I have ever dealt with - by far. Leao is in a lovely pricate location (semi-rural) but is only minutes from conveniences. It is a fabulous, spacious property and definitely lives up to expectations. Terrific villa. Thanks again for an amazing holiday".

Mr G. 'Can we all just say how fantastic the villa was. We couldn't believe the size of the place. It was like staying in a millionaire's mansion. We have three teenage girls who loved the size of the rooms. Helen and myself found the location, the map you gave us and just about everything else to do with the place absolutely brilliant. The living space was teriffic, huge and the Bose sound system went down well with the kids.(they plugged their i-pods in and all was well!)The first morning we had a visit from Jan, the villa agent. She was lovely and living close meant she could give us any information we wanted. After the first day we found the pool too warm, so after a quick call and within an hour she arrived and turned the heating off, nothing was too much trouble. The maids were great and kept the place immaculate, The gardener was good fun and told me a lot about the surrounding areas. There were some lovely quiet beaches around, which we found easily when we realised a short cut along a dirt track could get us to the centre of Albufueira in less than ten minutes. The car hire you arranged was very efficient.Well done for a very professional and  friendly service. We will be going with yourselves again.'

Mr LM "What a great holiday and villa, many thanks.  The villa above expectations, the welcome pack was superb and the maid service great.  The instruction on how to get to Casa Leao were excellent except perhaps for the last 1 mile (but it was in the dark, so would be difficult however good the instructions were). Thankyou again and we will definately recommend you to our friends".

Mrs P "The villa was perfect, very beautiful and well equipped. We had fantastic support from your representative there. We had trouble tuning in the television and she got somebody out straight away. She also organised a taxi to pick us up one evening as I didn't know how to go about this. You really could not have a better person to represent your company. We hope to book with you again.


Vale de Parra, 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.”
