Belcarina is at Quinta da Saudade, one of the oldest small estates in The Algarve. Originally a farm, it now consists of privately owned villas, a restaurant and poolside bar (a short stroll from the villa). There are many more bars and restaurants within a five minute drive.
Set in extensive grounds this is one of our favourite villas. There is a large, comfortable living/dining room which opens onto a long terrace overlooking the unusual bell-shaped swimming pool. Both the wide terrace off the sitting room and a further terrace, reached by stairs at the side of the house, have fantastic views over Vale de Parra to the sea beyond.
There is an attractive barbeque to one side of the pool and a tiered, lawned garden.
Living/dining room. Kitchen. 1 double bedroom with dressing room & ensuite bathroom with bath & shower. 1 twin bedroom with shower room en-suite. 2 twin bedrooms. 1 shower room.

Vale de Parra is to the west of Albufeira and has some of the Algarve's finest beaches, the best known is probably Galé, a vast expanse of golden sand with restaurants and water sports, including jet-skiing and parasailing; there is also a 'banana' - great fun for the kids! Galé can be busy in the summer but turn down any of the tracks along the coast road and you are likely to find a quiet beach or bay. Some, like Praia da Coelha, are a fair walk from the nearest parking area but worth the effort. São Rafael and Praia do Castelo are more accessible and have good beach bars. There are some wonderful restaurants, for example São Domingos, which has a good menu (including some excellent vegetarian dishes) and our clients are made especially welcome here. Also, O Marinheiro, which specialises in fresh fish. The Cerro d'Aguia is a ridge which runs from the western side of Albufeira, parallel to the coast with lovely views across the countryside to the marina...READ MORE >
Ms C "We had a lovely week and the villa (and Maria!) was wonderful! Hoping to return to the Algarve again next year".
Miss L "What a villa! The setting is amazing and Maria the maid became like on of the family (only more helpful)! Thanks to everyone involved. Your staff both in England and in Portugal were charming. Even the weather obliged!".
Mrs H "We have just returned from staying in the Villa Belcarina. What a lovely villa & setting, short of nothing. Maria was so helpful & so full of life, such an asset to the property. I would like to give Karen another big thank you for finding Belcarina after we had been badly let down by another villa rental company."
