“Lovely peaceful place to stay, and great value for money.”

After reading the reviews of others, we were not disappointed with the studio apt at the Villa Victoria. It was very well equipped with all we could need for a self catering holiday, and very clean with towels, bed linen, and toilet paper provided. Just bring beach/swimming towels. The swimming pool was superb with steps into the pool one end (no hand rails), and we had it to ourselves most of the time. As it was an exceptionally hot week, we spent a lot of time in the garden and pool, as it was too hot to stay on the beaches, which were very crowded anyway, and we had blissful peace in our (almost private) pool, with all our own amenities to hand. There are shady areas in the lovely garden if you want them, and you can move your garden parasol from your garden table to the sunlounger area if you want.
My only suggestion is that if you are fussy over your pillows, take your own, as mine was very hard. Also a message for Vittoria - it would be nice to have a long mirror in the main room, for make-up and checking your appearance before you go out !!! But also a big thank you to Vittoria for being so nice and helpful to us, and to the gentleman who had to saw off my suitcase padlock on arrival, as I had lost the key !!! (found it 4 days later - ha ha!)
It is a great value for money place, no frills, but everything you need, including a safe . No air conditioning, but an electric fan in the room.
The Blue Sky café/restaurant next door to the villa, served great food at very reasonable prices, and just over the road is a superb vegetarian restaurant= all you can eat buffet style (gluten free stuff also) - only open 12 - 3pm though. In the other direction (away from the Strip) is Johnny Hoopers Saxaphone Bistro. - great food and great music. A must !! only a 5min walk.The Strip is full of bars, food places, and souvenir shops, We avoided it especially after 10.30 at night!! The music beats out till 4am but you hardly hear it at the villa. so that's a bonus.
Would definitely come back here again, very relaxing.

Loved this place,. Quiet but so close to the strip, you can walk to anywhere from here. Clean and comfortable with all you need for your stay. Victoria the owner is lovely and so helpful and with so few apartments it feels very private. Without a doubt, we will be back.

“fantastic!!!”
Reviewed 3 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Found this little gem after stopping in several apartments in Albufeira and i don't think we will stop anywhere else again!!! this place is great and the owner Vitoria is lovely.we had a great week and met some lovely people while we were there a special mention to Margaret and Eric.
the place is great value for money and has a lot of extras included in the price wi fi and safe etc
we had a late flight and Vitoria let us stay in the apartment until we left very hospitable and without charge,i am trying to arrange a week with the family for next year where we would have all the apartments.

We Stayed for one week and booked directly with Vitoria, who also organised airport transfers for us, The studio was spotless and had everything we required for our stay,including a safe at no extra cost, The pool and garden are very well maintained, There are plenty of shops and bars nearby, and a restaurant right next door, If you are looking for the perfect break away then we would certainly recommend Villa Victoria for your stay

I. Have stayed in this area for a few years, but my regular hotel was becoming expensive and difficult to book.
I found Villa Victoria on a web site and booked directly with Vittoria. This was painless, including payment of deposit via PayPal.
There are just five studios, all of which open directly onto a delightful enclosed garden with a well kept swimming pool. The apartment was spacious and clean. It is conveniently located a few minutes walk from restaurants, bars etc .
I have booked again for a longer stay in the new year and have already recommended it to freinds.

Couldn't fault it. Victoria organised pick up transport for us. Studio is perfect for 2 people and only being 4 studios is lovely and quiet. For the more sociable people the 'strip' is less than a minutes walk away but you can't hear any noise from it. Beach is 800 metres away but the waves were too rough for us to swim. Wi-fi at studio very slow so we tended to use free wifi in bars.
