6 reviews

6 bedroom villa located in Albufeira with direct access and private to the beach, private swimming pool, jacuzzi, garden, only 500 meters from shops and restaurants, amazing sea views


The Home

In summary

Enjoying a wonderful and unique location directly above the beach of Dos Bicos with private access to the beach from the garden, this is a very beautiful and superbly furnished and equipped villa. Restaurants, nightlife and  shopping are all within easy walking distance. Being above the beach, the views of the sea and along the coast are superb but the location is quiet and privacy is excellent. A path and steps lead directly onto the beach from an attractive lawned garden with waterfall, pool and excellent barbecue terrace.  Furnishings and layout let you make the most of relaxed indoor and outdoor living. Located on a hill and with direct access to a private beach, Villa Rikana is the perfect property to spend your holidays in!


The villa is in two parts, a main house with three bedrooms and an annexe with a further three.
Bedrooms are arranged in the main house and annexe, with two doubles and a twin in each, four doubles and two twins altogether.
The master double bedroom has a king size bed and adjoining bathroom.  On the first floor are a guest twin room with shower room and balcony, and a double room with bath room.
The annexe provides two further doubles (both with bathrooms en suite) and a twin with shower room.


The main house has hallway, fully equipped modern kitchen and separate laundry, and comfortable living room with superb sea views. There is a large summer dining room with windows all along one side that open onto the barbecue terrace, and to the pool.    

Entrance to the property from the private drive is through an iron gate to a pretty entrance courtyard; straight ahead is the door to the main house and the annexe has a downstairs and and upstairs door up stairs to the right. 


The pool is 11m x 5m approximately with infinity edge and can be heated at extra cost.  There is an attractive dining terrace with lovely sea views and a charcoal barbecue.  (At the edges of the garden are rock features and the are some steep parts so care should be taken with children.) 
The garden adjoins the beach which is a short walk down steep steps and a path (2 beaches nearby with restaurants, lifeguard, sunbeds and parasols).
The garden is well kept with lawns, flower beds and three rock pools.

Staff & Services 

The preparation of breakfast is included in the rental price. It can be prepared every day except Sunday. The client must pay for the ingredients on the spot and a list must be sent before arrival.
A chef may also be requested when booking the house for the preparation of lunch and/or dinner.


The position is generally quiet but there is plenty in the surrounding area: local shopping is about 500m away, as are several restaurants, and you can play tennis at a nearby hotel, also a few minutes walk.  Albufeira is about 2km and golf is all around, several courses within a twenty minute drive. Villa Rikana is just a short walk from Santa Eulália with its variety of restaurants and shops.

Our Guest Reviews

Villa Rikana Recommended by 100% of our customers (6 reviews)
Average rating 9.9/10


The ratings above apply to our 2022 Stay at Villa Rikana. I am sure our 2023 Stay will be the same. :-)
The close access to the beach, location, en suite rooms, great pool, Elena was wonderful, overall a great trip.

Overall I was happy with working with Villanovo. I thought the response time could have been quicker but towards the end when working with Amaya the response time was very quick. The deposit amounts/balance amounts document was very confusing (as per the many emails I sent and I spent way too much time trying to figure out the way it was presented since the numbers weren't matching up. Other than that I thought the process was pretty good. Everyone was willing to offer help when they were available to do so and I would recommend Villanovo to friends and colleagues.
Kitchen could have been better stocked (ie. tupperware, saran wrap, foil, basic condiments and seasonings like salt and pepper, spices, olive oil, etc. It doesn't cost much but was annoying and a hassle to have to go out and buy things like that.

The key situation was outdated but realize the owners can't now implement an electronic key system.

I had asked Villanovo about fishing on the beach and was told that there was no fishing on the beach as per the owner's reply. As soon as we got there we saw people fishing and that was quite upsetting as my husband really wanted to fish and was very disappointed since he would have brought a pole. Also, it would have been nice when we asked about fishing that at that point the owner could have suggested that he could go fishing with a fishing company as our neighbors next door did (the other villa rented by a group of male friends).

Lighting in the bathrooms was terrible - would have been nice to have a vanity mirror with lighting for putting makeup on.
Vue exceptionnelle, jardin magnifique
Peu de rangement dans certaines chambres
Assiettes et plats de service lourds
Our stay at the villa was simply amazing!!! That is a beautiful property and we felt at home there. I will recommend staying there to anyone who asks!!

Good service from Villanovo.
