Belcarina, Vale de Parra, Albufeira, Algarve

Property ref: PA110

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.

Mr F.  May 2022: Very helpful team to speak to and the new website makes booking villas very easy (Trustpilot review)

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."


Vale de Parra, Albufeira, Algarve

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, which is home to some stylish yachts, several cafés, restaurants and an ice cream parlour. Sea fishing trips, dolphin safaris, diving (see Indigo Divers) and other water activities are available from the marina and in the summer there are open-air concerts and fashion shows. To the west of Vale de Parra, Quinta da Saudade is a mature estate of privately owned villas with a restaurant and bar. It is only five minutes from the beaches and just above Salgados Golf with a club house and restaurant (where our clients receive a 25% discount on green fees). Guia is close by; slightly inland and famous for its modestly priced restaurants serving chicken piri-piri (dry cooked, with a spicy chilli marinade). The nearby Algarve Shopping complex has numerous boutiques, cinemas and ten pin bowling and plenty of food outlets.

Close to some of the best beaches with a varied selection of restaurants. Most of the villas are in country positions, just a short drive from towns.
This area is becoming increasingly popular and there may be some construction work at certain times of the year.
