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.
My friend and I spent a sunny week here and had a good time. It is very quiet - but we were happy with that.
As others have said, Laura the rep is a very pleasant and helpful person, one of the nicest reps I think I've ever met in years of travelling.
We weren't that impressed with the apartment however. It was supposed to be a one bed roomed apartment but an ill- fitting concertina door hardly constitutes it being described as such. Unfortunately the balcony chairs were little upright metal things which were too uncomfortable to use.
We were only there for a week though so it was fine. Would we go back? Probably not, although the location was great, and I expect the apartments varied so it would be possible to have a better one. More

we booked this last minute and had an amazing deal- on the Thomson fly website.
we loved this apartment we had room 50 - great secluded room with privacy on the balcony, great place for an adult holiday. Everyone we met was veryfriendly and really helpful. Most guests we met had returned on more than one occasion and were regulars at the casa, I can see why this accommodation is so appealing and guests revisit so often , the owners are more than helpful - spotless rooms and lovely pool area close to all amenities in the old town albufeira with plenty to do and see.
We both returned totally relaxed had great fun and highly recommend it.More

Awesome location and central to loads of activities
Casa Mitchell is wonderful place to stay if u like being close to the old town to walk to but far enough away that you don't hear the noise. It is very clean throughout, with maid service most days except Monday and Fridays. The pool area is spacious with pretty flowers everywhere. There is an abundance of sun loungers. It is down hill to the old town and the beach. It is manageable and the hill is better than other areas in this region. If you go up the hill, first left, then right, walk along on the right is the supermarket with ATM and after is Safrons. Downstairs is a bar and on Sundays 7pm is an all you can eat BBQ for â¬7.50 (please reserve as the seats go quick). Upstairs is an awesome Indian restaurant. If you go down the hill it will take you to the marina, which is very unusual with its different coloured buildings. All the boat tours go from here and is worth while seeing the coast line and caves. Another awesome restaurants are: o catraio (has a silly cartoon logo) the food is Portuguese and very reasonably priced - a must is the giant king prawns (â¬15) and meat cataplana (â¬23) for 2 people. Leo's bar opposite is fab for snacks. shalom 2 is awesome for all you can eat ribs (â¬12) and mixed meat kebabs (Â£12). We enjoyed Slip and Slide waterpark, fun day out. hope this helps and have a fab holiday. More

quite and freindly
This is a bolt hole for Adults of a certain age that want peace and quiet from the hussle and bussle. these apartments are kept in very good condition some of the furnishings are looking a little worn, however the overall appearance is rustic portugese. This place is a five to ten minute walk down hill to the beach or town centre where there is plenty to do, there are certain bars which are typical no matter where you go offering English breakfast etc. However if you turn left out of the apartments then first right 200yds there is Kims bar and just past there is a steak restraunt, below which is a typical portugese restraunt . We found it to quiet around the pool area but very relaxing. I would say this place is like MarmiteMore

"Loverly and peaceful good location"
We stayed in room 64 a one bed apartment a good size rooms clean and tidy staff great really friendly.The staff across the road at reception were you pick up keys can not do enough for you i asked if they could give me a 5.30am call on day of departure not a problem.It took us 5 minutes to the beach well too the sea front then you have a chose walk down the pathway this takes a few more minutes or take the lift.we walked down every time but came up on the lift.ten minutes into the old town steady walk back up hill if we needed a rest we stopped off for a drink plenty of cafes and bars.Don't let the hills put you off Albufeira we are both in our 70s not 100 percent in good health but it will not stop us going again but make sure it's the old town you stay in it's beautiful did not like new part would go back tomorrow.More
