Casa Mitchell flaunts homely accommodation and a handy setting. It’s nestled among gardens, too, so it’s really private.
Casa Mitchell is a tiny, family-run hotel, set in a converted old townhouse in Albufeira. The atmospheric old town is just a ten-minute walk away, and sandy Fisherman’s Beach is roughly the same distance.
One-bedroom apartments and studios are spread over the property, and some overlook the gardens, which are full of blooms. They’ve got lots of character, thanks to homely rugs and pastel blue wooden furnishings.
These 1 bedroom apartments are a great base for exploring the surrounding area, and they come with either a balcony or terrace, offering some extra space outside. These apartments also include a lounge and kitchenette for that home-from home feel, plus, an extra bed, a shower in the bath, and air-conditioning.
On arrival we checked in opposite at the Villa Branca. Staff were very helpful and pleasant. Casa Mitchell lived up to the reviews I had read on Trip Advisor. Typically Portuguese with lovely tiling throughout. We stayed in studio 74 which faced over the road and although I was a little disappointed at first that we didn't have the pool view that I had hoped for, that soon changed when we were handed the keys which had an extra key to the roof terrace which was for our use only. This gave a lovely view over Albufeira old town and was a substantial size equipped with two loungers, a table and two chairs. The room itself was a perfect size for two with plenty of storage space. Everything was decorated to a high standard and included everything needed for self catering although we only used the kettle and dined out every evening. The pool area had plenty of sunbeds and although the pool is quite small, it was lovely and adequate for the number of rooms at this small accomodation. There is no bar or snack bar on site but there is a nice cafe opposite called Leo's which does a nice breakfast, snacks and drinks. A delight to stay in, a real home from home.More
we read the trip advisor reviews before booking this holiday, all i can say that some people are easily pleased.The apartment we stayed in ,number 75, was very dingy and dark, the balcony overlooked a brick wall and an apartment block ,yes you could see the sea about a square inch between two buildings ,not the best of views.Lack of mirrors in the room. It was kept reasonably clean , big down side is this apartment is part of the old town which means you can't put toilet paper down the loo ,it goes in the bin which the maid has to empty YUK!!!!!. Whilst we were there the area around the pool was like a mourge , nobody speaking, if you like quiet and i mean quiet its a good place if you like graveyards. We would never go back to theses apartments but loved Albufeira. So people i would say check out carefully accommodation before bookingMore

This was our second time here and we were not disappointed. The apartments are so very clean and everybody so friendly and welcoming. There are hills and steps, but this is the Albefeira, so if you have mobility problems, then this resort is probably not a good choice. Casa Mitchell is a haven. It is quiet and peaceful, If you want music, a bar in a hotel and a noisy, lively place, then this is definitely NOT for you. It's a place to sunbathe around the pool and read. Bliss for us. Superb, cannot praise enough and going back next year too. It is near enough to walk into the main town, but far enough away from the Strip!More
We stayed at Casa Mitchell 1st week in September.We arrived at 10.30pm with 2 other couples. Reception is in the Villa Branca opposite. We were booked in here and then shown to our rooms. We had room 61 a one bed roomed apartment which had a lovely big balcony overlooking the pool. The kitchen was well equipped for making simple meals.The 2 other couples were happy with their rooms. One couple had room 54 which because of the negative reviews on Trip Advisor they were apprehensive about.They found it to be a lovely room
The apartments were 10 mins walk to Albufiera. We are in our 60's and didn't find the steps and hills a problem. Kims bar was the nearest bar for an evening beer and Tennis Pizza just round the corner was great for a takeaway on the 1st night. Small supermarket at top of road for water fresh bread etc. Bigger supermarket 10 mins walk away Leos cafe opposite was great for an English breakfast
The staff at Villa Branca were friendly and helpful. The room was kept clean by the hard working friendly cleaner.. Pool area cleaned regularly and pool cleaned every day and water checked.
We had a great holiday and intend to returnMore
