Villas in Albufeira

Holiday with us in Albufeira

James Villa Holidays have 27 villas in Albufeira

Albufeira is perhaps the biggest and best-loved resort in the Algarve. Golden sands and brightly coloured fishing boats, lively nightlife and a wide range of restaurants and bars – Albufeira truly has something for everyone. The winding cobbled streets and steep alleyways of the old town, with its terracotta-roofed houses and bustling market add a touch of tradition – whilst nearby, a marina infuses cosmopolitan style. Most of our villas in Albufeira are situated in residential areas, a short drive from the main town centre. Here you’ll find a wonderful selection of beaches from the pretty golden sands at Galé to intimate little coves, rock pools and gentle sands at Castelo, Coelha and Sao Rafael. A short drive inland is the tranquil haven of Vale de Parra and Cerro d’Aguia, and the charming village of Guia - famed for its chicken piri-piri restaurants, and also nearby is Zoo-Marine and ocean life theme park.

Excursions and Places of interest

Cruises

For more energetic explorers, there are also guided kayaking trips to the caves.

Attraction parks

Zoomarine
Cleverly combining education with heaps of fun, Zoomarine is both an animal conservation centre and family theme park located at nearby Guia. The park introduces visitors to exotic habitats and an array of sea and land animals from tropical birds and birds of prey to dolphins, seals and sharks, with shows and presentations throughout the day.

Water Parks

Aquashow
One of several great waterparks along the Algarve, Aquashow is part of a larger theme park complex about half an hour’s drive from Albufeira. A memorable day out for all the family, the park boasts the largest wave pool in Portugal, water slides of all shapes and sizes and several exhilarating rides to delight even the most demanding of thrill-seekers.

Other excursions

Albufeira has a marina located a little away from the center of town to the west. It’s a lovely place to spend some time admiring the different boats or to enjoy a coffee in one of the many cafes.

Monchique
An hour or so’s drive inland through rolling hills, citrus and olive groves and flowering meadows brings you to the Serra de Monchique, a mountain range that separates the Algarve from its neighbouring region, Alentejo, It’s a world away from the Algarve’s beach culture, with quaint hillside hamlets, lush farmland and spectacular panoramic views. Monchique is a pretty market town nestling between the peaks of Foia and Picota with two beautiful churches and a convent as well as a bustling monthly market. Nearby, just 6 kms to the south, lies the peaceful Caldas de Monchique, home to natural springs of 32ºC that are recommended for their therapeutic properties even today. Both are well worth a visit.

Sagres
The cheerful, laidback town of Sagres can be reached by car or bus or you can join one of the many day trips on offer from the resorts. With a far wilder, more windswept feel compared to the sheltered coves along the south coast, the Atlantic coastline is breath-taking and dramatic. Scarily steep cliffs are frequented by hardy fishermen eager for a special catch while the magnificent waves on the west coast attract surfers from all around the world. From the town you can visit the barren headland of Cabo de São Vicente, the most south-western tip of Europe, with its red lighthouse and a small but fascinating museum showcasing Sagres’s role in Portugal’s maritime and navigation history.
