Spent a lovely week in Woodsmill view, York. The apartment is amazing and in a great area overlooking the river. Really well designed and definitely worth the price. Will be returning here and using Ocholo again. Can’t recommend these highly enough★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Great Villa, my wife and I spent a week here – checked out the local restaurants and relaxed at the villa. We only use the downstairs area but the upstairs looks very nice as well. Everything was clean and nice, if you’d like to watch movies the TV maybe a bit small– but that wasn’t issue for us. Good enough Internet for calls and work if needed 😊 John May 2022★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Myself and a group of 7 friends/couples stayed at the Vivenda Catarina at the start of May 2019. All I can say is the pictures do not do this villa justice! The whole place was spotless and furnished to a very high standard. Beautiful pool area and plenty sun loungers, two lovely outside dining areas and a BBQ we took full advantage of. The only downside I can think of is the fact the villa is very open plan and has a stunning mezzanine but this caused echoing as my friends are loud but it can’t be helped. This didn’t put us off at all and I will definitely be back! Excellent location, 5 min walk to a small convenience store and a further few mins to Spar. 10 minute walk to the main ‘strip’ but far enough away to not hear any noise. 5 stars!!!★ ★ ★ ★ ★
A great property and excellent location. We were allowed to go in early which was a fantastic bonus and much appreciated. Thank you to the cleaners. Booking.com Paul 31/07/2022★ ★ ★ ★ ★
I wanted to say thanks for a wonderful stay in Woodsmill View. It’s a great apartment and a perfect location. We’ve had a lovely week here and will certainly recommend your place to friends and family.

Absolutely good accommodation, with good value for money.
Quiet, and close to the center (by car).
Needs a car to get around.
Appreciable pool. - Ophélie, September 2022
Location wise this villa is amazing. The beach, and Apolonia supermarket easy reachable. No kids to bundle into cars full of sand, I would always want to stay by the beach now.
What a fantastic relaxing garden too, lots of palm trees, gorgeous. Will definitely be coming back!★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Lovely place. Really great value - the apartment is modern, functional, with a view and direct access to the swimming pool. The living room has a reqlly big flat screen tv where you can connect to your Netflix for movie nights. Its right in the Marina which is a much lovelier place than messy Albufeira city center so we loved it. - Meg, November 2021★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Beautiful cottage in a fabulous location. Short walk to the beach and all amenities. We sat out on the decking and couldn’t believe how quiet it was to say that we were so close to the town. Absolutely spotlessly clean with all essentials to hand. This was our second visit and will definitely be booking a third. Highly recommended.★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Perfect location - easy to get wherever you need to in a few minutes and it has a really nice view of the river, we chose to park on nunnery street car park as it looked a bit risky to use the garage due to the flood risk but this is a five minute walk and easy to get to! The apartment was spotless, really stylish and very well maintained, really nice to see some milk in the fridge and biscuits on the side. The bed was so comfy we slept really well! Great stay, thank you so much!★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Good communication in advance and that continued during our stay. Really helpfull and a friendly host. Together with a great, clean appartement in anice area and great pool, made our holiday perfect. Thanks! - Wendy, July 2022★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Such a lovely apartment in a very good complex, the pool area was great, very quiet while we were there and plenty of sun beds. We felt very safe at night. The apartment was extremely clean when we arrived, with a fully stocked kitchen. The air conditioning was well needed and worked perfectly. The balcony was very spacious with a fabulous view. As it was located at the marina it was about a 20 min walk to the old town however we did not mind as there are beautiful views along the way. There is also very good restaurants and bars along the marina. Wifi worked really well the entire time. Will definitely recommend this place to friends and family. - Hannah, Oct 2021.★ ★ ★ ★ ★
We had a great stay at Villa CABRITA Gale.
The house is really beautiful, well maintained, spotlessly clean, well appointed, very nice pool, excellent location ... a real treat!
Nous avons passé un excellent séjour dans la villa CABRITA Gale.
La maison est vraiment très belle, bien entretenue, d’une propreté irréprochable, bien aménagée, très belle piscine, excellente situation… un vrai bonheur !
Fantastic stay with our children. Ocholo booked our trip and all went smoothly. Child friendly for our 1 year old, all open plan downstairs is great plus there was a free travel cot and highchair, plastic bowls/cups and cutlery etc. We took the Playstation for our older children and hooked it up to the Smart Tv in the living room. Filey is always our favourite and we holiday there in the summer too but this winter stay was just as enjoyable. The beach is still great we luckily had crisp blue skies too, the kids had just as a good time and Shore House is just a short walk to town or to the amusements so the kids aren’t being put in the car all the time - perfect location and will definitely go back. We loved the comfy sofa we wanted to take it home!★ ★ ★ ★ ★

What a wonderful stay, Villa Elenor Grande, we were a group of 16 and could not have wished for a better place to stay.Very good communication and very correct from the host. Thank you very much, highly recommended.★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Great villa for large groups, lots of space! 15min walk from Marina, and only a quick 5min taxi to the Old town. 5min walk to a lovely beach! We were very happy! Great games room the basement too which is a great bonus! - Marco, September 2021★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Beautiful apartment we spent 9 days in T1 Marina a quiet area central to everything just a short walk takes you to the Old Town,the supermarket is just across the street and good food can be had along the Marina. One couldn’t ask for more. - Brendan, September 2022★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Lovely (huge!) villa in a great part of Albufeira, away from the hustle and bustle of the town. Walking distance to shops, bars, restaurants and the great beaches so all in all a great stay! - Katie, September 2019★ ★ ★ ★ ★
we stayed a week enjoyed every day I always look for a place which feels like home which this apartment does great nights down at the marina and days in the old town. - Michael, September 2022★ ★ ★ ★ ★
We had the best time. The place was beautiful and in an amazing part of Albufeira. The photos do not do the property justice. I can highly recommend this property. - Elizabeth, October 2022★ ★ ★ ★ ★
I turned 50 in March and I wanted to celebrate this day with my close friends. When we started to prepare the guest list we understood that we need a bigger place with 5+ sleeping rooms. It was not easy to find one and finally we found this villa. After settling the contract with the agent everything went really smooth and we arrived to the place.
The villa itself is much bigger than you see it from the pictures.
It positioned much better than you imagine looking at the pictures.
The interiors make you feel like a movie star so you need a professional photographer for the whole period of stay.
It is a really nice appartment close to Albufeira town. We have had a hired car, and it was great for exploring places in and around Albufeira. The beach can comfortably be reached on foot - about 10 minutes walk. We travelled off-season (october), and we had the beaches nearly to ourselves the whole time - wonderful! - Sonja, October 2019★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Very good location, in an area near the beaches but far from the hustle and bustle of the city center. Cheap restaurants take away and very good when you don’t want to cook. Nice pool, BBQ. - Stéphanie, August 2022★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Villa was stunning, and pool was larger than expected, great layout and modern feel and building stands out against the rest. was very clean and iris the host was very informative.
Just be careful using the waterfall shower use the smaller attachment as the big waterfall shower head can flood the whole bathroom as it overflows.★ ★ ★ ★
Lovely big clean apartment only a 5 minute walk down to beach.Apartment located in a nice quiet part of old town but only 5 minute walk into square,uphill on the way home but no avoiding that in albufeira🙈Great communication and easy check in even organised airport transfers for us which was a big help.Would definitely recommend a stay here. - Mary, September 2022★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Steve - Google Review August 2021
Absolutely fantastic place, perfect position overlooking the river,in the heart of the city but still peaceful enough to relax. I have been visiting York for years now and this is the best place we have stayed. Great city, great apartment and great hosts 5 star★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Highly recommended Villa and a wonderful short trip with 26 degrees in November
Thanks Lynne for organising for us, we had a great short trip, wonderful villa, clean and tidy. Carmo the rep was wonderful. We will highly recommend your company and this villa to friends and family and will not hesitate to use you again! 5 stars and can’t think of anything negative to say! We had 26 degrees in November… what a fantastic winter break!! Thanks again, Magnus

Beautiful apartment, very modern and clean. It was very comfortable and cosy, if I could live there I would! Fab location and in a quiet area. I had a wonderful stay and will definitely stay again! - Amber, September 2022★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Really impressed with the apartment. Beautiful pool with plenty of loungers . Gated apartment entrance made me feel very safe . Really quite Apratment Complex given its location off the Strip . Would highly recommend. - Amy, September 2019★ ★ ★ ★ ★
We loved Sao Rafael. Super quiet, lovely spot. We love the sea view of this apartment and the pool. We just used ubers to get into town when we wanted to eat in Albufeira, but preferred staying near a quieter beach. - Nicola, June 2021★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Beautiful apartment in a secure complex with large pool area with very shallow end for younger children and also good sized separate children’s pool. Set in a quieter area of Albufeira, ideal for families, and only 2 minutes walk from the amenities, restaurants, etc. of the Marina. About 25 - 30 minutes walk into the Old Town along the front or 5 minutes by local bus (bus stop 1 minute away) or taxi . Also when requested promptly provided an additional gate key and extra towels as we were an extended (3 generations) family of 7. Enjoyed everything so much we have already booked for around the same period next year. - October 2022, Ian★ ★ ★ ★ ★
The villa is clean , spacious and well maintained. Having the pool was wonderful on those very hot days. If you don’t like walking think about hiring a car or using taxis to get around. The walk to the marina is approx 25 mins away across the local field with a foot path, then we would get a taxi home (8 euros for 5 people). The area is very quiet and private and security was excellent. I would recommend this villa to family and friends as it was good value for money.★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Our experience was great, everything is quite new and just like it is shown in the pictures. Good areas, nice decoration, fully equipped and excellent cleanliness. The outdoor area is quiet, the swimming pool excellent and it’s a 10 minutes walk to the closest beach, supermarket and coffee shop. - Ana June 2021★ ★ ★ ★ ★
We stayed at woodsmill view for my wife’s 50th birthday celebrations. We love York and this location is fabulously situated for exploring the city and for the nearby bars and restaurants. Would definitely recommend, 5 stars.★ ★ ★ ★ ★
What a lovely little house, walked to the cafe on the roundabout for breakfast and coffee every morning or toasties for lunch - Can walk to a supermarket and even walked to the beach! Location wise, we like this area as it is inbetween Albufeira town, Algarve shopping at Guia, and the beach at Gale. About 8 minutes to all in each direction - so perfect for us! We have been twice so far to Casa Dos Pais!★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Óptima, casa esplêndida para relaxar e descansar com tudo o que tem direito. Para quem quer praia está relativamente perto. Acessivel a varios restaurantes e supermercados.

Great, splendid house to relax and rest with all you have to offer. For those looking for beaches, it is relatively close. Accessible to several restaurants and supermarkets.
- Vasco, August 2020★ ★ ★ ★ ★
We have stayed at Casa Dos Pais twice so far, location perfect for us! Its exactly in between Gale beach, Albufeira Old Town, and Guia (Algarve Shopping) its about 8 mins in the car in each direction. So spot on for us. Lots to walk to too so the car not always needed. Thumbs up from us we will come back a third time!

Amazing place to stay with beautiful views. The apartment was so clean and very big. There was 4 adults and a baby and we had so much room. The host was great, excellent communication and helped us book transfers.
We went in May and had gorgeous weather and the pool was lovely, the staff in the snack bar were very friendly and helpful. It’s about a 10 minute walk to the beach but we found it fine, hills on the walk back might make it difficult if you had mobility issues, but there was plenty of taxis and Ubers around for a cheap price. Had a wonderful stay and would happily book again.. The apartment was so clean and very big. There was 4 adults and a baby and we had so much room.

Lovely place in an excellent location! Studio is very well equipped and clean, and is about 7min walk to the old town and 10 min to the beach downhill (you have to count in uphill on the way back but its good for you anyway). There are a lot of walks around Albufeira and plenty of busses not far from the centre /flat, so it is a good place to use as a base to explore ALGARVE. Looking forward to returning soon. - Mar April 2022.★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Lovely clean, spacious and modern apartment, in a great location, just of the main square in Albufeira Old Town. Nice little roof terrace, with seating and a bbq. Would definitely recommend. - Conor, April 2019★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Villa Skye was the perfect setting for our family holiday and wedding venue.
From arriving at the big gates and driveway we were completely stunned at how beautiful it was and couldnt wait to unpack and soak up the sun in the amazing swimming pool.
Arthur the owner was such a nice guy showing us around his villa and explaining everything we needed to know, he left us feeling very welcome and we had all his contact details in case we needed further assistance. Thank you again for making our holiday/wedding one to remember!
Love From Mr & Mrs McMullen
Just returned from a weeks holiday . My husband and I, our three daughters and their partners. (Age range 22 to 57!!)The villa was everything we hoped for. In a quiet location yet within 3 min walk to a fantastic beach and beach bar… Within walking distance to ‘the strip’ with plenty to occupy the younger members of our group. Great local restaurants. Handy for taxi’s, local supermarkets and a great local bar. Can thoroughly recommend this villa★ ★ ★ ★ ★
We loved our stay here, with two very young children if was perfect, the apartment is large, well equipped, modern and very clean. Ground floor apartment with plenty of room to play, with pool and a children’s park. The terrace gets the afternoon and evening sun and only a 2 minute walk to the marina and 15-20minute walk to the old town. Spar and local supermarket 2 minutes away, great coffee & cake shop also. - Craig, October 2021★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Beautiful apartment on a gorgeous complex a few steps away from a pool, sun beds, and bar and mini market. Nice and chilled not too many people around. It is a 15 mins walk to the centre of the old town all down hill. The walk back is steep but you get used to it. If not it is easy to get an Uber or taxi for €3. The hosts were great and booked our airport transfers and late check out request. Would definitely come back. - Laura, July 2019★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Thank you! We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay here at Villa Skye. The villa itself offered everything we needed - struggled to get the children out of the fantastic pool! We visited Alvor and Lagos and several villages near by. Alvor has so many great restaurants it is difficult to recommend any in particular - try as many as you can! The outdoor area was used frequently - all in all, great villa, great location and we are more than likely to return.★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Fantastic apartment in a fantastic location. Ideal for a family holiday. Short walk to the marina or a manageable walk into Old Town or Uber (£5). Looking to go back next year. - Amanda 2019★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Location great and very quiet. Easy walking distance to all bars and shops.
Villa had everything you needed to have a great holiday no struggling for crockery or glasses. Beds very comfortable.
Pool heating excellent beach five minute walk away. Would go back in a minute!★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Our family of 5 really enjoyed our 2–week stay here. The house is great: big, clean, spacious, modern and with everything you need. It is very well thought out and functional. There are 3 nice bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. So everyone can find their space. The kitchen is big and well-equipped. Outside there is a barbecue grill. The house was cleaned a few times during our stay which was nice and the towels changed. Pool towels are also provided. The pool is great. Not huge but big enough for everyone to swim in and enjoy - and it’s just for you. And it gets lots of sun. The poolside area is also nice - with lounge chairs and a table and chairs. When we ate in we ate outside every night. The location is also good. It’s in a quiet neighborhood with the lovely San Rafael beach only a 10-15 minute walk away. There are also restaurants and a mini market within walking distance. A bigger supermarket with everything you need is 5 minutes by car. It’s a great place to chill out poolside for the day or to come back to after sightseeing or a day a the beach.★ ★ ★ ★ ★
What a view, particularly at sunset! We had a car so the location was great. A five minute walk to the beach, and a 20 minute walk to the marina. The car came in handy for grocery shopping and going into town, but something like Uber would work too.
The apartment had everything we needed.
Very enjoyable stay!

Great apartment that looks exactly like the pictures. I stayed for a month and the apartment offered everything I needed including super fast internet that allowed me to work from home without a hitch. Loved the giant TV ❤️ - Elizabeth, November 2020★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Villa Elenor Grande is an amazing chance for families to go on holiday together but have their own space. We were 3 families, this was PERFECT For us!! To eat, relax, swim, and chill out together but to have privacy in our own 3 bedroom villa, absolutely spot on! Good location, modern clean and pool table/table tennis for the kids - highly recommend! The rep is lovely and the staff at Ocholo during booking were great, easy to book and will be returning★ ★ ★ ★ ★
lovely location just 5 min stroll to the marina . very secure with coded gates etc very safe as we were staying with 3 young kids . also very quiet at night time which was great . pool area was lovely also . - September 2022, Breege★ ★ ★ ★ ★
This apartment is in a great location and bigger than it looked in the pictures. It has a large main room with big wardrobes, smaller second room and open plan kitchen/diner/lounge. Kitchen was equipped with everything necessary for a stay. Everything was spotlessly clean. It is a short walk to an amazing beach- big rock arches, sand and one of (apparently) the best restaurants in the area- closed when I stayed here. It is also a short walk down to the marina where there are other very good bars and restaurants. - Louise, November 2020★ ★ ★ ★ ★

It was a wonderful stay in this beautiful villa. The service was excellent and gave us a warm and easy welcome from the first day. Everything was perfect and I can only recommend this Villa. There’s everything you need and we felt like home. We will come back for sure

Lovely apartment in York, great location overlooking the river, really clean and tidy. Very well equipped and just what was needed for a short break in York. Being able to park the car was also very helpful. Would highly recommend and we’ll be staying again in the future!★ ★ ★ ★ ★
A really stylish, comfortable and perfectly located apartment. The bed is comfy, the shower is excellent and the kitchen is really well-equiped! The roofed balcony provides the perfect spot for relaxing with a great view of the river, even if it’s raining. Great to have a smart TV too! The location is ideal, only a couple of mins walk from the city centre and has car parking underneath the apartment (although best to check the flood warnings before you park). This place gave us the perfect base for exploring York and a cosy retreat when the weather turned bad. Would highly recommend!★ ★ ★ ★ ★
This place was very nice, we were by the lovely beach only a ten minute walk, and also ten minutes on the car to get to town. We had 8 people staying and we all fit perfectly, the beds were comfortable and the house was very clean and cosy. We had all the needed essentials, like hair dryers, towels, kettle and a coffee machine. We needed hangers for our clothes and the staff got a packet delivered the day we rang.
Excellent value for money. This place is definitely worth staying at . - Anne, June 2019★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Amazing appartment, beautiful and close to everything! The beach, bars and restaurants in old town are 2 minutes walking.
Appartment was clean, pretty and central. I recommome - Demi, July 2017★ ★ ★ ★ ★
The villa is well presented and equipped even better than the photographs represent it. Location is quiet - yet within 5 minutes of a beautiful beach. Plenty to do in the area - but you definitely want a vehicle. Overall would highly recommend
Our stay was beyond our expectations. We couldn’t have had a better holiday with our teenage children. We thought the property was out of this world. Very clean, had everything we needed to make our stay more than comfortable. The location was spot on. The house was a big part of why we had an amazing holiday and would definitely go back.★ ★ ★ ★ ★
The spacious apartment (every bedroom with super king-size beds) is in a great location. 10 mins walk to the beautiful beach. Close to cliffs where you can have a nice walk with gorgeous views. - Piotr, November 2021★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Villa Helene Norvilla is in central location you can walk to lots of things including the sports bar, and a short taxi to Albufeira. Our heated pool in April made it absolutely SPOT ON! Recommend highly.★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Great location overlooking the river right in the centre of York. Very clean apartment, comfy bed. We parked in the train station car park which was reasonably priced as we thought our car would be too long for the garage. We really enjoyed sitting on the balcony. It was the first weekend of outdoor eating during lockdown and everywhere was booked but as cooking facilities were very good, we were happy to eat at the apartment. Would definitely stay again. 5 Stars.
Date of arrival - 17 April 2021★ ★ ★ ★ ★
The Villa was nice and is like it is in the pictures.
The lady next store is there for any issues, not that we had any, her son is a taxi driver and did us a good deal back to the airport.
We got Ubers everywhere else as it was quicker and very cheap - 5 min ride to old town cost about 5 euro
Lidi is a 5-10min taxi drive away, the Spar is about 30 min walk round trip - so without a car, you will need a taxi or walk.
You can walk to the marina in about 15-20mins, all down hill - walking back bit longer as the hills are another levels
Lovely villa with gorgeous garden and pool (well worth getting it heated), 4 very large en-suite bedrooms, good sized living room (tv with English channels), well equipped kitchen, welcome pack much appreciated. Restaurant and snack bar on nearest beach, 10 min walk to larger Galé beach with 3 restaurants. Two supermarkets within walking distance and new ALDI supermarket 5 mins drive away. Management team were extremely helpful. We all loved this villa and would love to return!!★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Beautiful apartment in the centre of York! It smelled amazing when we walked in, so clean and fresh. Stayed here for my anniversary with my husband and our new born. Great location to be able to walk around York, nothing is further than a 10minute walk. I think we’d definitely come back… maybe without the little’en next time 😊★ ★ ★ ★ ★
