“Enchanting villa in an amazing location.”
Reviewed 19 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

This was a return visit to this villa since the renovation of the interior and exterior and we were pleasantly surprised by the changes.
The infinity pool is amazing!
The changes to the main living room have created more space and we loved the new sideboard/cabinet.
The new double bedroom was perfect.
Great to have Wi-fi.

“Magnificent Villa”
Reviewed 22 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015
7
people found this review helpful

OVERVIEW:
There were six people in total, Myself and my wife, My son (age 22) and his girlfriend , and my daughter (age 20) and her boyfriend.
Without exception we all agreed that the Villa suited our purposes perfectly.It was better than it looked on the photos (which was good) and in a quiet area of Guia.

MAIN ROOMS:
There is a living room that is very tastefully decorated with plenty of seating for relaxation together with a stereo system and flat screen TV that will accept USB input from Ipad etc. There is an air conditioning unit in this room that is quite effective if needed.There are patio doors offering a splendid view over the pool area and beyond.

The dining room is between the living room and all other rooms and comfortably sits six people around it with space to pass by. Again tastefully decorated and with an air conditioning unit and more cupboard space.

The kitchen area is long and narrow with a small table and plenty of workspace. It really wants for nothing,. It has a hob, oven, microwave, "American style" fridge/freezer and more cutlery, crockery and utensils than I could count!

There are 3 bedrooms all en suite.

The master bedroom offers a walk in wardrobe equipped with lots and lots of drawer space and cupboard space and complete with safe. The bedroom itself is bright and airy with windows on 3 sides. the blinds are excellent and allow a good nights sleep even after sunrise. There is a built in seat under the main window which is picturesque and practical. Again more cupboard and drawer space is provided. There is an air conditioning unit also.

Bedrooms 2 and 3 are a little smaller and as I did not sleep there cannot really comment, suffice it to say that there were no complaints from my children. I would point out though that there is no aircon in them.

PATIO AND POOLAREA

This really is the most fantastic area for outdoor use.

There is a glass table with 6 chairs immediately outside the living room. This then leads on to a large patio space before coming to outdoor sofa and chairs that are really comfortable and pleasing on the eye. There is a BBQ that is easily large enough to cook for 6 people and is equipped with all the tools and cleaning equipment that you will need.
The pool is larger than it appears on the photos and was easily big enough for all 6 of use to swim/play. There is also a lawned area kept in magnificent condition.
The views are great especially at sunrise/sunset.

Other features include a carport and side door to the garden which avoids quite a lot of steps.

SUMMARY;
This is quite easily the best villa that I have ever stayed in! It is well looked after, ultra equipped and very comfortable. If I was to be a little picky , I would say that you need a car due to the location for shopping, days out etc.
Guia is about a 10 min walk with banks, shops and plenty of great restaurants ( Guia is the birthplace of Piri Piri chicken).

I hope that this review has proved useful and I cannot recommend Casa Da Encosta highly enough.

We had a great stay at Albufeira, Guia. Very comfortable and cosy house; we felt at home from the moment we stepped in.
People are very friendly and warm; wonderful beaches; great food with very reasonable pricesm; we experienced friendly and efficient service at every restaurant we visited. You have to try the "Frango Piri Piri".
We will definitely go back.
