Villa da Mare, Santa Eulália, Albufeira, Algarve

Property ref: PA281


This stunning beach front villa is set in an almost unrivalled position on the cliffs above a beautiful beach which has a good restaurant and is part of the larger Praia d'Oura Beach.  It is one of the exclusive villas built on the clifftop, between Praia da Oura and Santa Eulalia. There is direct, private access to the beach from the gardens via a gate, steps and a stile. Just below the villa, there are 2 beach restaurants and the beach has sun beds and life guards.

This is a large private estate and the property is next door to Villa Borromeo  though they have individual private entrances. There is a gate in the garden for guests wishing to book both properties; otherwise they remain private and independent from each other.

Villa da Mare has stylish, comfortable living accommodation spilling onto the wide terrace. The sea view is so breath-taking that it has to be seen to be believed and can be enjoyed from most of the property. If the wall to wall terrace doors are open, there is a gentle sea breeze and you can hear the sound of the waves lapping on the shore below.

The villa is particularly spacious with a wide entrance hall leading into the main living area. There is an enormous open-plan kitchen with a breakfast bar, large dining table for ten and further comfortable seating, all aspects of this room take full advantage of the panoramic views. A home cinema is set at the back of the living area and is soundproofed for maximum enjoyment.

A circular stone staircase leads down to the bedrooms, all of which have en-suite bath or shower rooms.

There is a barbeque, poolside kitchen and dining area with a covered terrace. The pretty garden has a lawn and small wooden deck overlooking the beach and ocean. The swimming pool, which is heatable, has a built-in Jacuzzi.

There is an independent annexe, with two bedrooms, just behind the main entrance. This may be available on request.

Santa Eulália with its variety of restaurants and bars is just a short walk away which is difficult to believe when staying at Villa da Mare as it is quite private, other than the occasional sound of holidaymakers further along the beach. The popular Areias de São João is also close by making this a good choice for groups which include teenagers, although many clients hardly leave this idyllic spot and choose instead to stock up at the local supermarket.

NB For those with walking difficulties, the main Santa Eulalia beach is just a short drive and has good disabled access.

Please note, the pool does not have a pool cover so we cannot guarantee the temperature.

Weddings & parties may be accepted at this house on request.  Venue hire fees will apply.  Please ask us for details.

Reviews

Ms P   "It was the most amazing place to arrive at and as we looked around the properties it just got better and better. Thank you for a great holiday".

Mrs P J "As a couple, staying with another 2 couples, we very much enjoyed our first Portuguese holiday, staying at Villa da Mare.  The Villa is located close to a lovely beach which has a super restaurant, serving fresh local food, ideal for lunch.   Alternatively, for when you are feeling like using the excellent outdoor bbq at Villa da Mare, there is a decent enough supermarket, amongst a small town centre, only a short walk away. The bedrooms are nice sizes and ours was ensuite.  The kitchen is also a decent size and on the upper floor next to an open plan lounge/dining area, which in turn, opens out onto a patio, with a view to die for.  Absolutely perfect for that bbq dinner, or an aperitif before going out to dinner at one of a selection of nearby restaurants, only a short drive from Villa da Mare's location. We have fond memories of that holiday and lounging by the lovely pool, so much so, that we are again off to Portugal with The Villa Agency, baby in tow, this time!"

Mr R "The maid was good, flexible, non intrusive and helpful. Overall a fantastic villa and location. Couldn't be better. We will be back".

Santa Eulália, Albufeira, Algarve

Albufeira was once a fishing village and is now a popular bustling resort with many restaurants, bars and shops. The old town retains its character with winding cobbled streets and white painted archways; the modernised main square has cafés, music bars and, in the height of the summer, there is live entertainment. Leading from the square are narrow streets with numerous bars, as well as stalls and shops selling local pottery, handicrafts and souvenirs. The main town beach is reached through a tunnel and at low tide becomes joined to a smaller beach, once the home of the local fishing boats, which are now to be found in the marina to the west of Albufeira. Overlooking the fishermen's beach are some great fish restaurants including the well known Ruina Seafood Restaurant and the area has a lively atmosphere during the summer with several bars playing live music until late. ...

To the west side of the town is the brightly coloured marina, which is home to some stylish yachts, several cafés, restaurants and an ice cream parlour. Sea fishing trips, dolphin safaris, diving and other water activities are available from the marina and in the summer there are open-air concerts and fashion shows. The Cerro Grande is a residential area overlooking Albufeira Marina with a supermarket, restaurant, café/bar and is a short walk from the town centre. The road around the edge of Albufeira leads to the newer suburbs, where the daily fish, fruit and vegetable market is located.

The eastern side of Albufeira eventually becomes the popular resort of Praia d'Oura, not for anyone who wants to experience the Portuguese way of life but a hive of bars, nightclubs and shops - all catering very much to holidaymakers. Praia d'Oura is home to Indigo Divers where several of our staff have completed their PADI courses Indigo Divers. A little further east are the areas of Santa Eulália and Olhos D'Água which were originally small fishing communities and have since become bustling resorts. One of the trendiest clubs in the Algarve - Le Club - is located on the Santa Eulália beach, which also has two restaurants. These resorts have lovely sandy beaches with attractive rock formations, creating rock pools at low tide. Most of the villas we offer here are in prime positions within walking distance of a beach, shops and all the attractions. Some are set in extensive grounds, allowing privacy even at the height of the season. Pinecliffs Golf Course is close by (Algarve Golf Desk), as is the smart Sheraton Resort, with excellent (if expensive)restaurants. An added bonus to the general area is the Algarve Shopping Centre, located just to the north of Albufeira near Guia. It has numerous and varied shops, fast food restaurants, cinemas showing English speaking films and ten pin bowling, as well as a large hypermarket.

Pros
These are good choices for young people or families as many of our properties are within walking distance of shops, bars, restaurants and beaches.
Cons
These resorts become crowded in the peak season and are more likely to be affected by building work than rural areas.
