We can be flexible on check in/out dates and times if the Villa is booked in advance.
Just off the strip, and walking distance to the old town.
Villa century is located 5 minutes from main area where you will find all the bars, restaurants, and nightlife.
Praia da Oura beach and Forte Sao Joao Beach are approximately 5-8 minutes walk away.
We booked from 18-28th Oct 2013 for group of 8 people including 2x children aged 7 and 5 years old. There was lots of indoors and outdoors space for all. The pool was so cold, it took most of us 30 minutes to fully dip into the pool! We only used it 2/3 times the most. The deep end of the pool was 2 meters so we were worried about the kids. In the kitchen we had to buy what should have been included as a standard such as washing up liquid and pad, cooking oil, salt, pepper, bin bags. The cleaning crew came once during our stay and only changed the bedding and towels, they didnt sweep the floors or empty the bins...
Our contact Jimmy was very helpful and kind and always a phone call away!
The location was very central as everything was nearby. The strip was 5 minutes away but thats the short cut!! On day one were walked along the main road and it took 15 minutes... Parking the 2 x cars was outside the villa and court yard and side road is shared by a block of flats and other villas, so although busy there were parking spaces available.
We visited Zoomarine and its worth every expensive euros, although if came back within 10 days you could buy the same ticket for 6 euros!!! So we went twice! We all loved the animal shows especially the dolphins show. The kids came back home and started drawing pictures of the dolphins!!
We celebrated a birthday whilst on holiday and had dinner at Os Arcos Restaurante, Rua Alves Correia, 25, Albufeira 8200 and it was the best! The food was excellent and so was the service. The wife was the Chef and husband ran the front of house. If you only go to one restaurant make sure its this one, just of the main square in the old town. All in all a very good holiday!!!

I have just returned from a great holiday with 15 friends to villas Colum & Century in Albufeira, Portugal. Each villa was beautifully decorated inside and out and the swimming pools were perfect for a nice cooling down.
We booked 2 villas through Patrick Kennedy on RentalSystems.com. Patrick was very helpful from the moment we enquired about the villas and I was able to liaise with him via email with any questions on additional requests I required .. Jimmy (the property manager based in Portugal) was great and really helped us with any questions or minor problems we had during our stay and explained everything to us on arrival. All 16 of us thought the villas were in such a good location located within 200m of each other and are less than a 5 minute walk to the strip, 10 minutes to the beach and about 20 minutes to the old town. Security to each of the villas is excellent and we made sure we locked up properly before go out anywhere.
I would definitely book to return in the near future and will be recommending them to my friends and family.

“Lads Break in Portugal”
Myself and 3 friends stayed for a week at the Villa Century in May and enjoyed the stay that much that we are planning on going back next year. The villa was spacious, clean and in a great location. The pool was clean and refreshing and we used the BBQ on 3 days out of 7. A short walk takes you to a Portuguese supermarket where you can stock up on necessities. The famous "strip" is just 5 minutes away and I would say the "old town" is just a 20 minute walk away.

“A great weekend away!”
Myself and 7 friends stayed in this Villa for my hen weekend and we had a brilliant time! The villa is in a central location really near the strip with its bars and clubs and the old town isnt far either. The villa itself was lovely with a great pool area. The villa manager Jimmy was really helpful and nothing was too much trouble which was great! Thanks again for a great weekend!

“Great Location & Nice Place”
I booked this Villa with my friends (all lads) - we booked for the middle of February and were a little skeptical at first about the Villa, but I have to say first and foremost, what a great location this is in... The villa is well-secured with gates and a perimeter fence and the place was very clean indeed. We had a small problem with hot water, but this was rapidly rectified by Jimmy who was on hand in literally minutes and fixed the issue... The pool was a little bit cold to go in, but it was clean and is just great to relax on the loungers next to it...
Do not be worried about key pickup - this was outlined clearly when speaking to holiday lettings and Jimmy (The villa manager) - we got in within seconds. Jimmy had also kindly left us some biscuits, a bottle of wine and some tea and coffee with milk in the fridge - its the little things!
The interior of the villa is great, clean and the rooms have heating and air con, which can easily be controlled. The annexe of the Villa is also great and kept to a high standard.
All in all, we were only there for a weekend, but due to location, cleanliness and great maintenance, we would love to return one day... Thanks to holiday lettings for the booking...
Security deposit was refunded promptly via Paypal after the trip and we found it GREAT value for money!

“Outstanding and hugely memorable holiday. Strongly recommended.”
Prior to even stepping in the door of our villa we received great hospitality from the property leaser. There was no fuss in getting to the villa which is in a prime location. We were delighted with the service we experienced and I found they went beyond my expectations. A lot of effort must go in to making sure their clients have a wonderful time and they valued our custom. The property was spacious and extremely well up kept. I feel it would be suitable for any sort of group from young families to older travellers. I found it very secure and it was nice to be put at ease from the beginning. We enjoyed the private swimming pool and the pool table, which was great fun for us all. We all commented on our final night on how the villa really surpassed our expectations and really was great value. I would encourage and recommend anyone thinking of a holiday to stay here and will make sure to be returning myself!
To Patrick and the team at holiday lettings
A big thank you for our recent stay at the Villa Century, Albufeira, Portugal
Although we were only there for a long weekend, we soon felt at home the minute we stepped through the door, the villa had plenty of space for the 7 of us .
The pool was clean and the ample space and sun loungers made our first day one to remember.
The villa had everything we needed a big fridge, TV, comfy beds, a safe and plenty of clean space.
The villa location was exactly what we required, a 5 minute walk to the strip but no noise to keep us awake.
From the minute we booked with yourselves to the organisation of the villa/transfers/meet and greet was flawless and even when needed, you were there to go that extra mile to sort out all our needs.
Thanks again and l would without hesitation book with yourselves again and recommend you to family and friends.
Prop ref(s) : 63603Enquiry : Villa Century is worth every euro you are charged. Definately one of the best private villa's we have ever stayed at. Exceptionally spacious both inside and out, and well appointed. Plenty of space for kids to play on the property. Very safe. South facing pool / garden & pool cleaned twice a week, plenty of luxury loungers for everyone. Photos dont do justice to this luxury villa. Excellent location too - lovely quiet residential area, only 10 min walk to beach, 5 min walk from strip. Property manager, Jimmy, went far to accomodate every need and request we had - that extra mile stands this villa apart from all others we have been to before. In fact,I cannot recommend Villa Century highly enough. We will definately be advising our friends and family to book with Columbia Villa's in future. Well done, and thank you so much for making our holiday so memorable. Mairead, Co. Limerick, Ireland
