“wonderful villa”
Reviewed 3 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We had a wonderful holiday at the villa the only problem was that the two weeks flew by. Very clean, lots of room,everything there that we needed and there was no one at the pool each time we went for a swim. It was a nice walk into the old town taking 15 to 20 minutes.I would recommend this villa to everyone and will certainly return here when next holidaying in Portugal. Many thanks to Kevin for the airport transfers and for a trip to Luz. Many thanks to Melissa and Peter for the ease of renting their villa

“Perfect Holiday in perfect Villa”
Reviewed 9 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We spent 10 nights in July 2013 in Melissa and Peter's lovely villa. This was our first villa and foreign holiday as a family of 3 and the whole process couldn't have been easier. Melissa was great to deal with and sent all the right info at the right time and even arranged the lovely Kevin to meet us at the airport.

The Villa was perfect for us, in a quiet residential area but within walking distance of all the yummy restaurants in the old town. The super market at the bottom of the hill was great for fresh bread each day and all the wee essentials.

Our daughter is 5 so the walk into town took about 20mins and a taxi back in the evenings didn't cost any more than 5 euro, if you can't face the walk back.

For the most of our holiday we had the pool area to ourselves which was lovely we also enjoyed watching the shooting stars from the roof terrace.

Would recommend Cais d'Italia and Mi Sombrero for food the old town if you are into Italian and Mexican food.

Thanks Melissa and Peter for sharing your lovely villa with us.

Thank you for posting your review Im really pleased that you enjoyed your stay in Albuferia and that you enjoyed the villa.
In response to your comment the man who looks after the villa needs to enter the house at 10am on the day of departure to clean so that there is always a high standard of cleanliness for our next guests I apologise if you felt rushed to leave but we do have to keep to times on the contract.

“Fantastic, relaxing holiday”
Reviewed 30 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We stayed at Casa Paradiso for nine nights. The villa was spotlessly clean, spacious and comfy and was a home from home. kids (aged 5 & 8) loved the pool, which we had to ourselves all week. The roof terrace was fantastic and we spent a lot of our holiday soaking up the sun from there. The villa is set in a residential area, which is lovely and peaceful. We walked into the old town most days, which was about 20 minute walk each way (a great way to keep off those holiday pounds!!!). This was our first villa holiday, and with our flights, cost us less than a packaged holiday we had last year in one of those cramped one bed apartments. I would highly recommend staying at Casa Paradiso, we had such a wonderful and relaxing time and will return next year. Many Thanks to Melissa and Peter ,they were a pleasure to deal with.

“2nd visit to this Villa, recommended. Clean, quiet and spacious”
Reviewed 6 May 2013 for a stay in April 2013

Myself and friends stayed for 1 week April 2013, 2nd visit for me. Spacious, clean villa and in a lovely quiet spot. Pool is shared but had it to ourselves all week. Near restaurants and taxi 5 mins to Albufeira. Supermarket 10 mins walk which was so handy. Recommend this to anyone. Good for family holiday or friends holiday.
Melissa is so helpful and organised the transfer from faro and Kevin the taxi bloke is so punctual and will take you anywhere.
I would definitely stay at Melissa's again.... all mod cons in villa if you wanted to stop in ... English TV, DVD , CD's. The upstairs sun roof / balcony is lovely. Thanks Melissa

“Idyllic retreat”
Reviewed 2 October 2012 for a stay in August 2012

Had another 10 day break there with my husband and 2 kids and yet again the Villa was blissfully perfect, the pool was mostly ours exclusively for the holiday, occasional visitors from the other villas but generally ours which was brilliant for the kids (13 & 5). Villa is a 15-20 minute stroll from the old town which offers every cuisine and budget imaginable. This year we spent more time round the fisherman's beach area as we had no realised there was so much there, it was like discovering Albufeira all over again! El Rancho must not be missed, the granite sizzling steaks are a spectacle worth seeing.
The addition of a ceiling fan was a welcome addition this time round, air conditioning would be perfect but the fan was a major help.
Everything you need is at the villa for a real home from home stay, we've already recommended to others as it is perfect for families and couples alike.
The option of the transfers with Kevin is another bonus and tremendous value for the pick up and return trip to the airport.
We all look forward to the next stay whenever that will be!

“Lovely villa,fantastic terrace”
Reviewed 7 September 2012 for a stay in August 2012

Lovely villa in a great location away from the traffic and nightlife, although the old town is only a 10 minute walk away. Villa is spacious and has everything you could need including a bathhroom on every floor. Had the pool to ourselves for the 2 weeks which was fantastic. Barbeque area at front of house was great too. Recommend restuarant at bottom of hill too,a cochera and the farm village cafe which has free internet. Thank you also to Kevin for our airport transfers. And thank you Melissa the owner for making things happen so easily and making all the arrangements. Was in touch at all the right times leading up to holiday with information. RECOMMEND THIS VILLA TO ANYONE.
