I stayed with a friend in a 1 bedroom Villa & it was in best location for everything & the most picturesque settting. Surrounded by beautiful gardens & trees it was peacefull even though we were just a 3 minute walk to all the bars/resturants of The Strip. Didnt hear a thing when in our villa. The villa itself was clean ( if a little bit dated) & the best equiped self catering accomodation we have ever been to. Sometimes your lucky if you get a kettle! We had full size cooker, a microwave, fridge, cordless kettle, loads of pots n pans, even tea towels! Oh & a tv with sky. The beds were very comfy, even the sofa bed. We had our own quite large patio with table, chairs & brolly. The stairs to the bedroom were a bit steep so I held rail to go down, but thats the only slight negative. Albufeira is a fun place with loads of great resturants and bars. Our faves were Angelus Bar for English breakfast (e4.50), Donaldos for great food & friendly service. I loved their Hen in a Pot. Best casserole ever. La bamba also had great food. Jing Du chinese resturant had the best chinese food with 2 menus (Normal size portions or small portions for e3.50). All 4 we visited more than once. I must also recomend the Italiano Icecream parlor just down the strip from vilanova. It has a giant icecream cone outside. The icecreams are to die for! (Ferrero roche, Blackberry, banana, toffee, watermelon & loads more amazing flavors for e2 for 2 massive scoops. We went in every day, just couln'nt resist. There were load of great bars too. Also theres a little train that stops right outside vilanova & takes you to the old town for e3.75 for an all day/unlimited use ticket. The beaches were all about 10 mins walk away. We went to 3 different parts & each 1 felt like a different beach. Will definately go again. Loved it all. Book a villa as apartments are facing the Strip, villas are in gardens.
