Villa Oliya is a recently modernised and refurbished private 3 bedroom Villa set in its own grounds, with a garden, a heated 26×13 foot swimming pool and a spacious upstairs veranda.
It is located in a lovely area of Areias De Sao Joao. It is just a couple of minutes’ walk to the famous Strip and a 10 minute walk to the beautiful Oura beach where you can hire sunbeds for the day or relax at the beach-side restaurants.
The “Old Town” and Fisherman’s beach are a 30 minute walk, a 5 minute taxi or a very pleasant road train ride away.
You will not require a car in order to enjoy a visit to Albufeira, however, if you wish to hire a car for some or all of your stay, we have free private car parking for your use at Villa Oliya.
The flight from the UK to Faro is around 2.5 – 3 hours. Villa Oliya is approximately a 30 – 40 minutes transfer time from Faro airport.
We know it is sometimes difficult for transfer companies to find villas, and we can make the necessary reservations for your transfer from and back to the airport. Child car seats and on-board wifi will be offered free as part of the transfer. You will be met at the airport departures (no queuing at the transfer desk) and you will pay the driver for the trip upon departure from the airport.
If you wish to be met at the villa by a representative on arrival (next day if arrival is after 9pm) then please advise us of this at booking. Otherwise keys will be in a key safe and full instructions on key safe and alarm codes will be sent via email prior to your arrival. We have a comprehensive Welcome Book with information and suggestions to make your holiday even more enjoyable, places to shop, how to get around, places worth a visit and more!
There are minimarkets on the Strip, and a large Continente Supermarket accessible by walking, taxi or road train, close to the Brisa Sol hotel – directions etc are in the Welcome Book at Villa Oliya.

The garden continues to the rear and here is a washing line, a covered area with a table tennis table and BBQ area.
The front door leads into the entrance hall and then to the open plan living and dining room, simply but tastefully decorated and furnished, with dual aspect over-looking the front patio and the pool to the side.
From the dining room you come to a typical Portuguese-style kitchen with all the equipment and crockery you need to prepare and cook meals for your family and friends.
There is a utility room which has a washing machine and a cupboard containing an iron and ironing board for your use. A door leads to the back garden and BBQ area.
There are two twin bedrooms on the ground floor, separated by a hallway and doors from the living and dining rooms, so people sleeping in these rooms will not be disturbed by those in the other downstairs areas.

The en-suite includes a shower, the main bathroom has a bath. All bathrooms have ample storage for toiletries.

I worked in the electricity Industry for 26 years before applying for redundancy in October 2015 to spend more time with my young children and go to my favourite place – Albufeira. My husband and I bought a villa, refurbished it and are now offering it for rental during some of the year.See Owner Profile
