Vila Alba

Vila Alba, Albufeira Portugal

★    ★   ★

A calm, tranquil self-catering property, and a member of the popular Portuguese Luna group. The attractive grounds and good-sized pool compensate in some way for the distance from the beach.

here is a distinct lack of internal communal areas and restaurant facilities and a hire car is an advantage. There are very limited facilities for families with young children.

Exterior

A pleasant arrangement of white painted Mediterranean style low-rise villa like buildings with irregularly shaped balconies, many of which overlook the pool and attractive gardens. A corner entrance, with a couple of steps, leads straight off the street and there is plenty of free parking in the immediate vicinity.
