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.
Two-bedroom apartments sleep up to five and come complete with a well-equipped kitchenette. They're kept in top shape with maid service five times a week, linen changed weekly and towels changed three times a week. And for a bit of extra space outside, you'll get a balcony or terrace.
One-bedroom apartments are cozy and inviting with separate open-plan lounge with dining area and kitchenette. They can sleep up to three adults and have twin beds. The room will be kept in tip-top shape with maid service five times a week, linen changed weekly and towels changed twice a week. Plus there’s a balcony or terrace for you.
Great little complex. Check in at Vila Branca over the road and that's about it for the rest of the week! You are very much left to yourself for the rest of your stay.
Nice quiet pool area, always spare sun beds available. Adults only so very quiet during the day and at night. some apartments have been refurbished, some haven't. Ours hadn't (No 51) but was great for our needs. Like somewhere to lay down at night!!
The apartments are on a quiet local street about 5 minutes walk down the road to the first of the bars in an area of the old town that is very scenic. Turn left at The Blue Bell bar and keep walking down hill and you will reach the area of the main square. This is the lively part of the old town with bars and restaurants a plenty. You will be walking back up hill to get back to the apartment later don't forget! So pop in to one of the bars on the way back to break up your journey. Recommend Tunes bar or Sal Rosa opposite. If you want British bars then Merlins or Blue Bell will be for you.
Opposite to Casa Mitchell is Cafe Leo's selling English breakfasts or toasties, bacon sarnie, beans on toast, scrambled egg. Nice fella who owns it (Leo presumably) and plenty of locals use it too so popular with everyone.
All in all I would recommend Casa Mitchell.More

very pleased with Casa Mitchell - lovely clean appartments
We were allocated room 74 - no Balcony but a brilliant sun terrace on the roof just for our use!
Short walk intio the old town and beach.
Could not find fault at the Casa Mitchell but if I was being picky the pool area would be improved with better beds and sun umbrellas , but this only a minor irration.More

All About the Room
Your opinion of these apartments may be influenced by whatever room you get on arrival; ours certainly was.
Unfortunately we got Room 54 which is a small dark space: perhaps the worst room at Casa Mitchell. It has a basic kitchen, the smallest shower I have ever seen, no bath and altogether it was a disappointment to us, having read very positive reviews prior to booking.
The pool area is a sun trap but the limited odd assortment of sun umbrellas which do not securely fit in the stands provided, really require to be replaced. The standard of cleanliness of the tiled areas around the pool was poor, and we never actually witnessed anyone wash this area throughout our 14 night stay. The loungers were grubby as were the mats for the loungers.
The free Wifi is a bonus and it worked well.
Staying at Casa Mitchell does not require the use of Taxi's to access the old town and this was a big plus as the Taxi rank at the main square had large queues every night.
The apartments are a shortish walk downhill to the beach, main restaurants, pubs, clubs and shopping. You can also walk to the Marina again downhill.
Leo's the small Cafe opposite Casa Mitchell is well worth a visit.More

Spacious, clean, comfortable & well maintained communal areas.
Just returned from two weeks at these apartments. We had a lower studio which was brilliant for keeping cool. The place was spotlessly clean; plenty of space and the whole area was well-maintained.
Friendly atmosphere and helpful staff.More
