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.
A cozy and inviting studio, sleeps two and has twin or double beds with a kitchenette. 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.

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

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

Peaceful retreat, away from the action
We had a lovely roomy studio ( number 66 ) with it,s own little private terrace. FREE air conditioning and FREE wifi ( password from the Villa Branca reception across the road. There was a nice pool area with plenty of sunbeds for everyone, although some people deemed it necessary to put out towels early morning. Our cleaner Christina was very friendly and helpful. If we had any problems or concerns we just popped over to the Villa Branca reception and anything was dealt with quickly and cheerfully.
Go out the front door and turn left, after a few yards is a mini supermarket for essentials run by a lovely helpful lady, turn right then right again you will find Tenis pizzas they sell the best takeaway pizzas i have ever eaten. A few yards from there is where you can buy your day excursion tickets from a charming local couple who are agents for the tour companies and the tour excursions are at least 25% cheaper than thomsons who do the same trips.
A little further from there down a few steps cross the road and down a few more steps bring you to fishermans beach. Also a walk along to the left brings you to the square and a mass of shops, bars and restaurants. There are a lot of little slanting paved walkways containing more eateries and shops before you get to the main square which is lively day and night. Food was good everywhere we ate.
This is a great place for a holiday but i don,t recommend it if you are disabled or find it difficult walking as there is a lot of uphill walking invilved in getting around.More

Returned from Casa Mitchell yesterday. What a lovely quiet place. Stayed in Room 53 which faced the pool. Lovely big terrace although,as it overlooked the pool, was not very private during the day. One down side, albeit a bit trifle, was there was no clothes drier of any sort. The apartment is about 10 minutes downhill from the apartment where there are numerous bars and restaurants. Tic Tac bar does a good breakfast for 3.50 euros...two eggs, bacon, beans, tomato and toast. No a destination for disabled though, unless your lucky enough to have an apartment/hotel down in Albufeira at sea level.More
