For many groups rather than a hotel, the best option for a stag do in Albufeira is having your own private villa. With a pool. And a BBQ. And a fridge full of cold beers! Ideally located, close to bars, nightclubs, beaches, etc, if possible. And that is why a private rented villa in Albufeira is a great option.
Just 20 minutes from Faro airport, Albufeira is famed for its stunning golden beaches and neon nightlife. A villa in the city, close to the action but affording the privacy and home comforts that a hotel often lacks, would be an ideal place for a stag party in the Algarve, and plenty of private villas nowadays accommodate large groups.
So let’s have a look at the top 8 villas in Albufeira for stag do groups, as recommended by the stags themselves.
Sleeping up to 41 people, villa Ania is a colossal option for large groups. Completely walled and totally private, this villa is consistently among the top-ranking properties when it comes to stag do rentals. A five minute drive from Albufeira’s main attractions, including the Zoomarine theme park, Algarve Shopping Mall, the Strip and the Old Town, its location is second to none. With nine bedrooms, seven bathrooms, and a covered pool with a hot tub, the huge villa also has its own tennis court, games room and karaoke-bar-style area, this place is party central.
Good-looking, seven-bedroom Villa New is located in the heart of Albufeira, on the doorstep of the Strip with its plethora of nightclubs, bars, shops, supermarkets and restaurants. All living spaces including the bedrooms are light, bright and airy, while outside is secluded, with a bbq, pool and plenty of sun-loungers. Fully equipped with modern appliances, this large, traditional Algarvian villa is walking distance to the strip and to Oura beach. Other amenities, such as golf courses, shopping centres and sports facilities, are within a 30 minute drive.
Villa Legeado has the perfect blend of ideal location and cool amenities, including a heated pool, making it a great option for all seasons. Equipped to accommodate large groups, this traditional, substantial Algarve villa is located in the Areias de São João neighbourhood. Sleeping up to 16, it has 7 bedrooms, a fabulous roof terrace and a fully equipped kitchen. What makes it perfect for stag dos is the private games room, bar area, and the fact it is just 300 meters walking distance from Albufeira’s famous strip.
Within a 15 minute walk to a number of great beaches, Villa Rosal, a large 6 bedrom, 6 bathroom villa, is a short drive to Albufeira centre, meaning a cheap taxi trip, but far enough out to offer lots of peace and quiet. It has plenty of bars, restaurants and supermarkets in the immediate vicinity, meaning you can enjoy as many nights in as nights out. Next-door to the villa a two-bedroom apartment is also available, taking the number of guests who can stay together up to 20. Surrounded by a large garden with pool and bbq area, this villa also has its own bar area and pool table.
Less than 500 metres from Albufeira’s strip, Villa Tigonema is situated in the popular Oura neighbourhood. Despite being so close to the strip, the villa is located in a quiet cul-de-sac, meaning restful days after raucous nights. A 3 bedroom detached villa with a 3 bedroom annex, fully renovated for the 2017 summer season, this property provides accommodation for up to 16 people, although the main 3 bedroom villa can be rented on its own for smaller groups of 7 or less off-season.
Villa Três Palmeiras
Sleeping groups of up to 18, this eight-bedroom, five bathroom villa is excellently located in central Albufeira, conveniently between Albufeira’s Old Town and the Strip. Divided into 2 separate sections – a main villa and a self-contained apartment with internal access between them – it is fully equipped with air conditioning and other mod-cons, and a brand new kitchen. Both the Old Town and the Strip are just a short 10-minute walk from the villa, although a number of bars, restaurants and attractions are all on the doorstep.
Walking distance to both the Old Town and the Strip, this substantial sandy-coloured villa is large and handily located. Divided over three separate floors, Casa Caseiro, in the Areias de São João neighbourhood, has five bedrooms, five bathrooms and sleeps up to 14, also being walking distance to the beach and supermarkets. With its own pool, satellite TV, air con and sea-views, this is a great option for travelling stags who want comfort and convenience.
Villa Vista Bonita
Sleeping up to 30 people, Villa Vista Bonita is a supersized 13-bedroom detached villa with private car parking, a good size pool and al fresco eating area. Divided into apartments each with en-suite bedrooms, there is a number of cafés, shops, bars and restaurants all within a few minutes’ walk of the villa. The nearest large supermarket is 1.5kms away (or a 15 minute walk), while central Albufeira and its beaches and attractions are a short taxi drive away.
