"We had a fantastic holiday in Obidos. Well organised with a personal greeting when we arrived.
Beautiful, well equipped villa, surrounded by a stunning landscape and close to the amazing lagoon and coast line.
Everything we could have asked for. Thank you AlbanyHill."
Ethsham Akhtar - Cambridge
I had a great time at my apartment, I love the place. The apartment is top quality, it had a microwave, fridge/freezer, touch-sensitive hob, balcony over-seeing the pool, great sofas, dishes/cutlery.
As far as the area goes, I enjoyed it. The beach was awesome, the best one I've ever been to, Tavira Island.
As far as the staff, very friendly, helpful and professional. There are plans to move onwards and upwards with Quinta Do Morgado and I know the place is in good hands with Maria's team, the cleaning crew, the nightguards, etc.
I'm definitely happy with the purchase Lucy, and I mentioned to Toni yesterday that a big thanks goes out to Albany Hill for your efforts, professionalism and friendliness. It isn't very often I deal with companies I can truly say great things about, but these little touches such as you asking about my trip, it makes all the difference.
Dexter Jeffrey - Barking
I have to say your company and staff came across extremely professional. It's just unfortunate that the times we are in had made this purchase go on a bit longer than planned, but I don't blame Albany Hill for that. Like I mentioned banks and lending in this downturn was the hold up. I understand and accept that. So all in all I was very pleased with Liz, Jon and Toni (the three team members I mainly dealt with) they were always friendly and easy to talk to and very prompt in replying to emails or calls. Even Lucy's email of recent was a very nice touch with introducing herself.

I have found the service, advice and information from all your staff to be first class. I have been kept in the loop all the way through and any queries have been answered without delay. Given the current climate I am sure the process has taken a lot longer but again keeping us informed means a lot. I live quite close to Milton Keynes and have visited on a number of occasions to deliver paperwork etc. and have been made to feel most welcome. I have only just completed so i guess i would now like to see a bit more paperwork i.e. proof of ownership, mortgage details (rates etc).
I have found my experience of working with your company very pleasurable and if my property becomes the investment i hope it will i will be a very happy man. No doubt you will keep me updated with this investment and anything else that may be appropriate.
From Tony Carroll - Ireland
I am very happy dealing with yourselves, I've been trying to build up an property investment portfolio outside the UK and Ireland over the last two years, this is the first time a purchase has actually gone through. I've been kept up to date by you at every stage and look forward to a very good relationship with Albany over the coming years.
From Mr & Mrs Heaton - Manchester
We have been very happy with the process and we feel that your team made every effort to assist us at each stage. We were a little frustrated by the length of time that the process took but we understand that this was outside your control and we are grateful that you bore with us to find a workable option. At all times we have found all the members of your team to be friendly, constructive and helpful. We would be pleased to work with you in future and to recommend you should the opportunity arise. Im very pleased to have completed our first property in Portugal with Albany Hill, and I look forward to staying in our Obidos villa when we fly over in September.
From Robert Lea - Hertfordshire.
I was introduced to Albany Hill just over 12 months ago. I currently have a portfolio of UK investments properties and I was keen to extend my investment into Europe. Albany advised of the current issues around Spain, France etc however Albany demonstrated how Portugal is now a more stable option. Albany Hill offered me a 'turn key' solution to the property investment. So having put them to the test 12 months ago, I now own an apartment on the Blue Coast, a Villa with a private pool on the Silver Coast and looking to add a further property on the Algarve. Good company to work with, I would certainly recommend them.
From Charles Fox - Bedfordshire
Having seen the Obidos villas on the Albany Hill web site I became very interested, especially as it was a very low entry fee. The team at Albany were very professional and apart from the banks taking some time processing my mortgage, the whole transaction was very smooth. In October 2009 I completed on the property and am now the proud owner of a 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom villa with a private pool, in a beautiful part of Portugal.
Liz & Ian Butcher - Buckinghamshire
At first we were nervous investors, this being our first investment property purchase. Albany Hill took the time to explain how the deal worked and what our responsibilities are with effect from year 3. We entered into the deal with the confidence that we had a support network behind us who would be there to answer ongoing questions about any concerns we had.
What's more, shortly after my property completed, an opportunity arose within Albany Hill Network. With a personal career background in banking and finance and given how impressed i was with the team and service at Albany Hill, I jumped at the chance.
Donna Urquhart & Family - Scotland
Wow what a house and what great and punctual service was provided. As you can imagine you go onto the internet and you have such a massive choice of villas in Orlando to choose from but I'm so glad that we choose this villa. The villa is so spacious and so well equipped and most importantly extremely clean it was like being home from home and I got so attached to the house and was very sad to leave it. I would most definitely rent this villa again in the future and most definitely recommend it to my family & friends. A huge thank you for the use of this beautiful house and the fantastic service.
