Fantastic Catarina villa.
This villa is wonderful. Very spacious, very welcoming, great facilities, nice area, lovely pool. We stayed for 6 nights as a group of 3 ladies and we really enjoyed every moment at the villa. It’s easy walking distance to supermarkets and the old town, and the marina. We would definitely stay there again, with family too.

Villa Catarina in Albufeira
We arrived at the villa by taxi and found the key safe without problem and let ourselves in. We were thrilled on our first impression of the interior and there were essential provisions in the kitchen for us, which was very kind and most appreciated. When we came downstairs the following morning we were once again thrilled by the Villa and the pool and surrounding garden area. It was a wonderful base for our first visit to Portugal and literally had everything there you will need. We spent a lot of time around the pool and met a delightful Siamese cat, which we named 'Dave', who visited us daily. There were many books on the shelves in the villa and we all found several to read during our stay. We visited the old town daily and unless BBQing or cooking at the villa, ate there in many of the fantastic restaurants. We also discovered the Waterfront Bar on the Fishermans beach, which we also visited nightly enjoying cocktails made by Steve and a wonderful view over the bay. The weather was amazing and we've all returned to the UK with great tans. We think that the Villa was everything it proclaimed in the advertisement, and more. We had a fantastic time and would love to return and try other villas from this company too. During my booking procedure earlier this year, the office staff at the Albufiera branch of HomeAway were incredibly helpful and they all deserve a mention, too. I would recommend that the pillows in the bedrooms are replaced though, as they were a bit on the 'lumpy' side. However, that is such a minor detail when remembering what a fantastic time we had at Villa Catarina. Great villa, lovely country, amazing weather.... Couldn't have enjoyed our holiday more. Thanks to you all.
The best holiday villa we have ever stayed in
We found the villa every bit as good as its billing. The bedrooms were large, spacious and had plenty of storage. Both bedrooms and the living room have air conditioning which was included in the price. The villa was very private with locking gates and high fences. The pool, although small, was more than adequate for the needs of a family of 4. We were very pleased with all the equipment that was available, including hair dryer and a toastie maker, washing machine and barbecue. The villa was a short 5 minute drive away from the Old Town, as well as being close to Lidl and Aldi. Overall the area was quiet, although you need to be aware that there are lots of dogs in the area and they do tend to bark a lot, especially at night. We returned one day to find that the cleaners had been in and made beds, changed the towels and did the washing up. This was a pleasant surprise! Unfortunately for us, our flight was in the evening on the final day, but we had to vacate by 10.00am which was a bit of a rush, but none the less probably par for the course at this time of year. My wife ensured that the place was clean and tidy for the next arrivals as a thank you for the cleaners who visited earlier in the week. Finally I would highly recommend this villa to anyone wishing this type of holiday in the Allbufeira area, especially the reasonable price charged for the week which went by far too quickly for our liking ! !
Gelegen in een rustige en kalme woonwijk waar je buren de lokale bewoners van Albufeira zullen zijn.
Albufeira is het internationale toeristencentrum van de Algarve. Het ligt op 32 km afstand van Faro
Eens een vredig vissersdorpje, houdt het zijn smalle straatjes in de oude stad en witgekalkte huizen hoog boven een charmant strand.
Winkels, bars en restaurants vullen elke hoek, maar er is ook het oude kasteel, de gebouwen die nog steeds behouden zijn, Moorse bogen en interessante kerken, zoals die van S������o Sebasti����o.
Het oostelijkere deel van Albufeira, Oura genaamd, is de thuisbasis van de beroemde strip, te vinden aan de voet van een steile heuvel, een bar en een restaurant, die helemaal tot aan het strand reikt.
Het strand Praia da Oura biedt veel activiteiten, vooral voor avonturiers. Naast de gebruikelijke wateractiviteiten zoals zwemmen, zeilen en snorkelen, kun je de gele bananenboten en jetski's rijden of para-opklimmen. In de baaien kun je vrij wat tijd vinden of van de gelegenheid gebruik maken om te duiken.
