    We stayed in Villa Borboleta for the second time in October 2019. The villa is located in a private villa complex, has its own private pool and great facilities close at hand. A 10 to 15 minute walk takes you to the Strip and a short taxi ride drops you off at the elevators into the old town. The villa itself has 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, essential with 6 adults staying and the kitchen facilities with washing machine, dish washer, iron & ironing board all available. A large living and dining area which leads out to the large terrace and beautiful pool, with 6 sun beds and a bbq area as well. We’ll definitely stay here again and recommend it as a great choice of villa for a holiday.

    We absolutely love this villa and have now stayed here several times. There is something really nice about going back to somewhere you know and this villa just never disappoints. Its situation is perfect in a tastefully thought out villa complex with its own reception, pool area, restaurant and small supermarket. The villa itself is superb and is exactly as shown in the photos. The interior is beautifully decorated with very well equipped kitchen area and spacious lounge area which both lead out to a wonderfully landscaped pool area with sun loungers and large table and chairs. We were a party of 5 and loved the fact that each bedroom had its own ensuite which was great and even has an extra loo downstairs for use during the day. The hustle and bustle of ‘the strip’ in Praia d’Oura is closeby with its many shops bars and restaurants and Hugo is always on hand to help arrange transport.
    Carlos remains as professional and courteous as ever and always makes sure that everything runs smoothly even down to arranging a lovely welcome pack for our arrival.
    Thank you Carlos for yet another wonderful holiday !!!

    Een foutief beeld was het onderhoudspersoneel van tuin en zwembad die onaangekondigd de villatuin betraden.zo werd onze privacy geschonden. Het bestelde vervoer naar de luchthaven op 06/10 kwam niet opdagen., tot na telefonisch contact van onszelf. Voor het overige is ons verlof ons prima bevallen.

    We absolutely loved this villa and had a brilliant holiday here. The rooms are spacious and each one comes with its own bathroom which we found incredibly useful and there is even an extra loo downstairs too ! The whole villa is beautifully decorated and well set out including a well equipped kitchen with microwave, toaster, cooker, dishwasher (really handy) and even a washing machine plus plenty of crockery and utensils. The lounge area houses a lovely big dining table and sitting area which leads out to the pool area. The pool itself was lovely and wonderfully private with beautiful foliage growing around so that the whole area is not overlooked. I must say that we did actually spend most of our days just lazing around the pool – it was idyllic. If you wanted to venture out then there’s a little mini-market just around the corner next to the complex restaurant and communal pool area – vey nice and friendly people too ! We went to Praia d’Oura by taxi which cost around 4 euros and spent hours browsing the many shops bars and restaurants plus the beach there is well worth a vist. This is one of the best holidays we have ever had and I would thoroughly recommend this villa to anyone. The whole booking was dealt with so professionally by Carlos who was so helpful and even arranged a lovely welcome pack ready and waiting for us when we arrived. My only regret about this holiday is that we didn’t book for longer as we only had a week her but I am already saving for next year. !

    This was our second stay in villa Borboleta and we were a bit worried that we were making a mistake going back to the same place for a second year running but it was even better second time round and we enjoyed our holiday even more. The villa is fabulous – beautifully decorated throughout and extremely good facilities. We especially loved the fact that each bedroom has its own bathroom and there is even a spare one downstairs which is really useful for during the day. Both the lounge and the kitchen give access to the pool area which is where we spent most of the day just lounging around. There are plenty of comfortable sunbeds and a large table and chairs for eating al fresco and the pool is surrounded by the lawn and completely enclosed by some beautiful flowering plants and hedges – we loved the privacy it offered. If you fancy venturing out then you can easily walk to the strip at Prara d’Oura where there are loads of bars and restaurants but quite busy so nice to come back to the calm of the villa too. Quinta da balaia has its own reception and there is also a communal pool area with restaurant and a small but well equipped supermarket within a 5 minute walk. Carlos dealt with our booking on both occasions and he has been so helpful, even arranging a car for us and transfers to and from the airport. I honestly cannot recommend this villa enough nor the service we received from Carlos who has always been on hand anytime we’ve needed him. Would we go back again for a third time ? Yes, absolutely !!!!

    We could not have had an easier booking from start to finish Carlos was more than happy to help with any questions we had , and the taxi service is a must we used it several times to go to the old town or a 15 minute stroll gets you to the livelier strip (senor frogs went down a treat if you like pizzas). The villa is absolutely lovely inside and out and with having a two year old with us the gated grounds were perfect. if we return to Portugal in the future we will certainly return to villa Barboleta or one of the other villas available.

    The villa was amazing and was well equipped and clean. The pool was private and the outside terrace you could relax in your surroundings, but if you fancied a change, restaurants ,bars, supermarkets and shops were just 15-20 min walk away so the location was the best of both. Our family holiday, first time staying in a villa, I would highly recommend it to families, I’m looking forward to booking for next year. Our children were aged 7 and 10, they loved the pool and we felt safe and secure. We could also recommend Zoomarine and slide and splash. The manager Carlos was fabulous and his customer service was outstanding. Also we chose to use the designated chauffeur service for our days out, and I would highly recommend this service as their service was fantastic and flexible which helps when you have tired children. Overall a fabulous villa and holiday we wont forget.

    This was our family’s 3rd visit (a party of 6 adults) to Quinta da Balaia & staying in a villa owned by José Carlos. This time we stayed at Villa Borboleta between 8th & 15th October 2016. We found the villa to be well equipped & suited our needs. It has a large comfortable living/dining area, a serviceable kitchen complete with dishwasher, washing machine & small kitchen appliances & 3 large double bedrooms all with en-suite facilities. The villa was maintained well & the pool area was also well looked after with room for al fresco dining, ample room with 6 loungers for sunbathing & cooling off in the pool. The pool was cleaned twice during our stay & housekeeping called once in mid-week. The washing machine was very handy as we were able to launder our towels & clothes when required, letting them dry in the warm Algarve sunshine. On the night we arrived we couldn’t get into the safe, however, following a phone call to Carlos the problem was rectified the next morning when Carlos himself arrived & sorted the issue. We also had difficulty with the downstairs WC but again this problem was rectified very quickly by Carlos. The only drawback was needing taxis into Albufeira so would recommend car hire if you intend to get out & about much during your stay. All the financial transactions were completed easily & in a timely manner & the villa safety deposit was refunded inside 2 days of our return home. All in all we had a good stay in the villa & would certainly recommend it. We will be contacting Carlos again when we next visit the Algarve! The Kenny Family, Northern Ireland. Obrigado Carlos!

O nosso muito obrigado ao Sr. José Carlos pela compreensão evidenciada nos momentos anteriores à reserva, uma vez que não estávamos habituados a pagar integralmente a estadia, facilitando o seu pagamento, como também, posteriormente, dado o facto de usarmos um serviço na segunda semana ( a internet), que não nos foi debitado. Quem puder goze a “villa” sempre que a ocasião se proporcione!

    The Villa was lovely. The best features about this villa were the huge garden, pool and barbeque. The villa itself was spacious and en-suite bathrooms (with bath) in each of the three bedrooms. The location of the villa was also very good and approximately 15-20 minutes walk to the Strip area where you will find all of the very good restaurants and bars. We would have no hesitation in returning back to Villa Borboleta. Jose Carlos was also very helpful.

    The villa exceeded all our expectations and offered us the perfect environment for a brilliant holiday. Our whole experience was seamless from being picked up at the airport to (sadly) being taken to the airport on our return home. The accommodation is of a very high standard and the added convenience of wifi and sound system in all rooms was great. Having a private pool is a must and you will not go back to sharing once you try this. We had a couple of problems and these were very promptly deal with by Hugo in a professional manor. We would highly recommend this accommodation so much so that we are already looking at booking for next year.

    First of all would like to give a big thank you to Carlos for arranging this stunning villa, Carlos was superb throughout booking and everything went very smoothly from arranging the transfers and a hire car. The villa itself is beautiful with lovely grounds for our two children to play in. The pool is great and is of a good size. There is plenty of sun loungers and the shaded terrace was great for eating and keeping the kids out of the sun. There is a roof terrace which is lovely but we spent most of our time by the pool. All the bedrooms were great and had on suites. The living area was spacious with cable tv, dvd player and videos which was great for the kids. The kitchen had everything we needed and the dishwasher was a bonus. The wi fi was great so would recommend this. The complex itself is lovely with a mini market which caters for most things and has fresh bread delivered every morning. The main supermarket is about 3 minute drive away and is brilliant. I would recommend hiring a car as we found this to be very easy to get around and explore the beautiful Algarve. There are loads of lovely restaurants within a 15 minute walk and would defiantly recommend a trip to the old town. We went to Falesia beach a couple of times and this was stunning, 15 Euros for two beds and a brolly all day. Overall we were very happy with our stay and cant wait to come back for another visit. Thanks again Carlos the Scott family

    I have just been on this site to show one of my friends the villa we will be going to in a few weeks and seen what I would call a very unfair review in my opinion!! This will be our (2 adults 2 children and 2 Grandparents) 3rd time at this villa and the 4th time booking with Carlos. We have had the best holidays ever at this villa and every time we have stayed it’s been clean, tidy and extremely well maintained. Nothing is ever too much trouble for Carlos to sort out. One phone call if ever you need or want to ask him anything, he is on hand every time to see that your holiday is as stress free as possible. We had a car issue last year (our own fault may I say) and Hugo/Carlos sorted it all out within minutes. Everything provided at the villa in our opinion is perfect for your holiday and if there’s anything not quite right you only need to make a phone call to Carlos! Couldn’t be any easier. Everything written on these Web Pages/pictures is exactly what you get. As for condiments!! I don’t see the problem in buying your own, I prefer it. Hinges, toaster, wine glasses and door broken….. How is Carlos supposed to sort this if no one tells him and gives him the opportunity to sort before you include in your review. This is a fabulous villa with amazing pool which we all love very much. I would definitely recommend this Villa to all my friends, family and anyone else.

    My friends and I stayed from 21st to 27th Oct 2010.
    The villa was perfect!!! Could not find any fault with it at all, it was like a home away from home!! You do not need to take anything with you as there are books, cd’s, dvd’s and video’s. And the owner also leaves coffee, biscuits, tea, wine and other bits upon your arrival which was a really nice touch.
    The villa and complex are maintained really well and very clean. It is situated about 15mins walk to the strip where there are shops and reasonable priced restaurants.
    Overall a great experience and will def be going back there in the futureRecommended for: Families with Young Children, Sightseeing, Girls Getaway, Tourists without a Car, Age 55+, Romantic Getaway, Families with Teenagers.

    We found Villa Borbaletta to be great for a family holiday of 4 adults.

    The pictures and descriptions are all enturely correct and although we arrived earlier than expected – Thanks Easyjet! – Carlos was at the villa and showed us where everything was.

    Being the first 2 weeks of February it was a bit cold to use the swimming pool, but the garden was well maintained and the sunshine made for some very pleasant outside reading.

    The cable TV allowed us to keep abreast of the news from home as and when we felt the need, but the stereo was much more used, allowing us to listen to music throughout the villa.

    Qunita Da Balaia is an excellent location for the whole algarve, being almost central. We were able to visit Capo St Vincent and Sagres one day and Castro Marin on the Spanish border the next. The proximity to Albufeira means that if you want partying and nightlife it’s right on your doorstep but so to are the quiet beaches and if you drive just a little way inland the more authentic Portugese villages.

    We wouldn’t hesitate to reccomend this as the base for a great Algarve holiday.

    Hi Carlos, just to say thanks for a great week at your Villa.

    I’m always slightly nervous renting a villa, you never quite know whether the pictures tell the truth, but your villa was better than we could have imagined.

    There was loads of room and all the facilities we need.

    Although the pool was a bit chilly (it was in November!) the sea was warm and the weather was perfect. The beaches nearby are absolutely lovely.

    Thanks again – we’ll be booking with you again very soon.

    Me and my family just got back to Copenhagen from a three week stay at Villa Borboleta and we had the best time. Carlos the owner of the house provided us with perfect tips on what to see around Portugal. We had our 5 months baby boy with us and Carlos made sure we had everything we needed. He also took the time to come by and welcome us to the Villa and to make sure everything was ok. The Villa was great plenty of room, nice and clean, everything we needed, a home away from home. It is rare that you meet someone so service minded and nice.The surroundings were beautiful, perfectly clean pool and beautiful garden with flowers. The Villa is also just a short walk from several beautiful beaches. We loved it and would definately consider going back to Villa Borboleta.Recommended for: Families with Young Children, Families with Teenagers.

    My family and I stayed at the Villa Borboleta at the end of October and early November 2008. We were very impressed with the warm welcome we received. The owner, Carlos could not have been more helpful. It was a coincidence that he happened to be in Albufeira at the same time and he popped in to say hello and to check that everything was okay. He was an excellent guide and was extremely helpful in advising which attractions, restaurants, shopping areas and beaches to visit. There was also a welcome pack left for us which included bottles of wine, tea, coffee, milk, biscuits and big bags of crisps. This was a really nice touch and prevented us from having to pop out to the shops as soon as we arrived.

    Carlos was really helpful and I promised that when I got back home, I would email him a Points of Interest (POI) file with instructions and exact directions to the property as well as Faro Airport and some local restaurants and attractions just to say thanks for a great time. This can be stored and used by anyone who has the appropriate maps on a TomTom navigation device. Hopefully, this will be available for Carlos to email to any prospective vacationers within the next few weeks.

    The property was clean and well maintained and the cleaner visited about twice a week to deliver fresh towels and clean the whole property. There were pool men who also visited regularly to check and clean the pool and maintain the garden.

    Although we visited in the low season, the weather was surprisingly good for the time of year. While there, we received an email from our neighbours saying that it had been snowing back home, while on the very same day we were sunbathing and the kids were enjoying the pool.

    I would also say that a car in my opinion is essential for the freedom it allows while there. Traffic in Albufeira is fairly sedate and it is not a difficult place to drive in.

    I have no complaints about the property and would strongly recommend it to anyone considering a self-catering holiday who needs the space that a hotel would never provide. The only comment my wife made was that the living room furniture could have been more comfortable.Recommended for: Families with Young Children, Sightseeing, Girls Getaway, Age 55+, Romantic Getaway, Families with Teenagers.

    This villa is beautiful. It is much bigger than it looks and the furniture is very modern. The surround soud is so cool! It goes all around the house (even in the toilets!). The pool is also very nice and the rooms are also very spacious.
    The pool steps are quite sharp but we just jumped in instead!
    The location of the villa couldn’t be more perfect. It was close to ‘The Strip’ (about 10 minutes walk). It had restaurants, bars and clubs, shops and more on it (very cheap food). Matt’s Bar is at the top of The Strip and was the cheapest place for drinks, but The Garage Club was the best place to go clubbing.
    There is a mini golf near the villa to which i would recommend going to.
    We were a group of 17year olds, so with no car, and managed to do most things that someone with a car could do as Carlos arrange transfers for us.

    The bbq wasn’t that big and there were no sharp knives. The minimark was very close (about 1min walk) with a variety of foods.

    We all had a very pleasant stay.

    Well, what can I say. First impressions was WOW from young adults and old. This villa provided everything for all of us. It was not far from the night life for the youngsters, yet provided tranquility at the same time! Not far from the beach for all of us, walking approximately 30 minutes or 15 minutes car!

    The villa itself provided everything, it was home from home. You could easily live there forever, everything was thought of. The music system piped through to every room and the terrace area was a hit for us all. The DVD and video collection was great for the youngsters late evening when they wanted to chill!

    The pool was great fun, so much space for everyone to enjoy. The terrace upstairs – great. Daughter was in heaven with her walk in wardrobe and ensuite bathroom and patio doors to the sun terrace – table and chairs or sunbeds would have finished it for her.

    The location of the villa was great, tucked away but still easily accessible to everything. The shop on site provided everything, loved the fresh rolls and croissants everyday. The staff so friendly. Perfect start to the day.

    For those who like to keep fit, there was a great 3 mile circular course to jog every morning. For the warmer mornings, the pool was enough!

    The walk into old town took about 1 hour, but to the strip 15 minutes. Both worth doing on those lovely warm evenings. Great for walking off your meal!

    The villa provided plenty of information on local attractions. The welcome pack was very welcoming! Milk, tea, coffee, biscuits, crisps, wine and beer – what more do you want! What a welcome!

    This villa is great for any age group. I would highly recommend it. Travelling by car around the Algarve is so easy as well!

    Carlos has to be congratulated on the directions he gives from the airport, they took us straight to the villa. Also on his service if there was any query with the villa. There was always someone on hand to talk to!

    If I had to pick a fault with the villa, it would be not having the garden and pool lights on all evening. This is compensated with the lights in the terrace area though, which also have speakers for your music.

    Thank you Carlos for a fantastic holiday. We will be back one day!

    My family and I have just returned from a weeks stay in Villa Borboleta and I am already looking at booking again for next year!!!
    The welcome pack on arrival was a lovely touch. The villa is stunning with everything you need. It is clean and modern with maid service twice weekly and gardeners! The villa is very spacious with a fantastic pool and garden. The garden is very private and secure which was great as we have 2 young children. It is within walking distance to Albufeira so we were able to eat out often.
    I can’t recommend it highly enough!

    April 2008, a spacious, spectacular villa in a lovely setting. Well equippped, beautifully clean and decorated. Excellent, seamless booking along with good clear deatiled instuctions of how to find the villa from the airport. A little early in the season for the kids as the water parks were not open, but they made great use of the pool!

    Stayed in this villa back in October 2006. The photo’s do not do this place justice. Honestly the deco, furniture – Everything is to a high standard. Even down to the surround system that we could have throughout the whole villa, including the area around the pool. States Car recommended but we enjoyed the 5-10min walk.

    Just received update from owner, and was suprised no-one had left a review so felt I must. We’ve been to 2 villa’s since and this is always top of the list – Never been able to match it yet.Recommended for: Families with Young Children, Tourists without a Car, Families with Teenagers.
