Casa Leao, Vale de Parra, Albufeira, Algarve

Property ref: PA94

This lovely villa is tucked away down a quiet lane, set in a landscaped garden overlooking an unspoilt valley of farmland and orchards. Facing both south and west, its secluded location gives complete privacy, although there are neighbours, so Leão does not feel isolated. It would be difficult to find a more attractive exterior - paved terraces on different levels lead down to the pool terrace (care should be taken with very young children). Cool, marble floors lead from the main rooms to the shaded terrace with a large barbeque area at one end which has distant sea views.

The villa is a ten minute drive from numerous beaches and the centre of Albufeira and even nearer to Pateo and Guia with several good restaurants. The interior takes advantage of the lovely views down the valley with the coast in the distance. Each bedroom has a terrace or balcony overlooking the countryside. The well designed, fully equipped kitchen has a convenient breakfast area in addition to the formal dining room. The principal rooms are unusually light and spacious and the house is furnished with a mixture of local and Asian furniture.

Mr K "Had a lovely stay in Casa Leao - already recommending it to our friends!"

Mr E, May  "Our holiday in Casa Leao was absoluteley fantastic. Love the new kitchen. The weather was perfect and nothing could have improved our short stay in Vale da Parra. Thank's again for your usual help in making our holiday's in the Algarve so unforgettable. Can't wait for our return in October to come around"

Mr E "We think the whole package is a credit to The Villa Agency - the best company I have ever dealt with - by far. Leao is in a lovely pricate location (semi-rural) but is only minutes from conveniences. It is a fabulous, spacious property and definitely lives up to expectations. Terrific villa. Thanks again for an amazing holiday".

Mr G. 'Can we all just say how fantastic the villa was. We couldn't believe the size of the place. It was like staying in a millionaire's mansion. We have three teenage girls who loved the size of the rooms. Helen and myself found the location, the map you gave us and just about everything else to do with the place absolutely brilliant. The living space was teriffic, huge and the Bose sound system went down well with the kids.(they plugged their i-pods in and all was well!)The first morning we had a visit from Jan, the villa agent. She was lovely and living close meant she could give us any information we wanted. After the first day we found the pool too warm, so after a quick call and within an hour she arrived and turned the heating off, nothing was too much trouble. The maids were great and kept the place immaculate, The gardener was good fun and told me a lot about the surrounding areas. There were some lovely quiet beaches around, which we found easily when we realised a short cut along a dirt track could get us to the centre of Albufueira in less than ten minutes. The car hire you arranged was very efficient.Well done for a very professional and  friendly service. We will be going with yourselves again.'

Mr LM "What a great holiday and villa, many thanks.  The villa above expectations, the welcome pack was superb and the maid service great.  The instruction on how to get to Casa Leao were excellent except perhaps for the last 1 mile (but it was in the dark, so would be difficult however good the instructions were). Thankyou again and we will definately recommend you to our friends".

Mrs P "The villa was perfect, very beautiful and well equipped. We had fantastic support from your representative there. We had trouble tuning in the television and she got somebody out straight away. She also organised a taxi to pick us up one evening as I didn't know how to go about this. You really could not have a better person to represent your company. We hope to book with you again.


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.
