A charming and rustic villa located in Albufeira, Moradia Messines allows guests to roam free and reconnect with the fundamental aspects of nature. As you approach the exterior of this property, you will be blown away by the sheer size of the swimming pool that sits in the centre of the grounds. This considerable swimming pool is also surrounded by a unique decking area that hosts a range of premium sun loungers and cushions.

The dining area sits under an exposed brick archway, adding a more countrified and pastoral feel to the whole space. The table and chairs are topped with light wood and surrounded by a single piece of black metal. Thus, this also adds a touch of contrast that guests can enjoy.

Not far from there you’ll also come across the beachy Sao Rafael as well as Galé where the sandy stretches and deep blue waves will have you thinking you’re on the set of a photoshoot.

    on 03/11/2023

    Beautiful villa and a great owner. Renovations have been undertaken to a high standard and is well equipped. Communication was fantastic. Highly recommend.

  • Beautiful!

    on 25/10/2023

    Very beautiful!

  • The villa was a dream!

    on 25/10/2023

    The villa was a dream! We felt right at home. There was nothing that didn’t exist. The kitchen is very well equipped and the huge sofa very comfortable. We would recommend the villa to anyone, whether families with infants (like us) or as a group. We would love to come back

  • Sublime!

    on 30/09/2023

    We had a pleasant stay in the villa Moradia Messines, we felt directly there as at home, the decoration is sublime, very well equipped, spacious, really pleasant. We will most certainly go back:)

  • Comfortable stay!

    on 23/09/2023

    The place is accurately represented by the pictures. It’s a very well equipped villa that makes for a very comfortable stay. Matthijs and the rest of co-hosts are very communicative, responsive and helpful, making the check-in & check-out experience, and everything else very easy, practical, and smooth. We would be happy to return for a further exploring tour of the Algarve!

  • Very welcoming!

    on 10/09/2023

    A refurbished, tastefully decorated villa. Very spacious. Being 9 we all had our privacy. The bathroom and toilet in each room are very much appreciated. The exteriors and the pool are very well appointed. Very friendly welcome, small attention to our arrival to start a good holiday. Very responsive during the stay. Thanks to Marrion and Matthijs.

  • The house is beautiful

    on 29/08/2023

    The house is beautiful, the amenities are at the top. The welcome basket with all the local products was very appreciated. Only small negative point, a little noisy environment at night (dogs and refrigeration group from the store in front of the house). Still very pleasant stay.

  • 100% recommended

    on 29/08/2023

    Excellent communication. Very spacious house, renovated in excellent condition and very clean. No air conditioning, but with fans in every room and cooled floor that made the house quite fresh (we didn’t miss AC). Mini market in front of the house for very practical shopping. 100% recommended for family vacations or groups.

  • Everything we needed for

    on 27/07/2023

    We spent a relaxing week at Moradia Messines, excellent communication from our host and seamless check-in process on arrival. We had everything we needed for a great family holiday, what was even more special was it is wheelchair accessible throughout and arranging the delivery of specific accessibility equipment was not an issue. The local shop across the road had everything you could need and the pool was very welcoming! Overall a fantastic house/trouble-free experience, thoroughly recommended.

  • I highly recommend it

    on 20/09/2022

    The house was new and totally corresponded to the photos. The communication was very easy and the check in and check out went smoothly! The only bad points were the lack of network in the location of the house, the internet that did not reach the rooms and the light that went out too often. Great option if you want to spend a few days holiday with friends or family.

  • Best holiday home ever

    on 01/09/2022

    It has everything you need and more. Tt was so peefect it was hard to get out of the house. The hosts are amazing and organized. If you are worried about the lack of AC, don’t be, he house keeps cool very efficienty.

  • It was a wonderful vacation

    on 03/08/2022

    The house is fantastic and has everything a family needs to spend a good few days. To improve, perhaps the possibility of having air conditioning for the hottest days, otherwise it is perfect. Communication was excellent and the person who received us, Marrion, was always helpful, putting himself at our disposal for whatever we needed.
