Wonderful villa

  • 5 of 5

We have been to this area on holiday for the past four years as love it. This villa is very special, so much space, meticulously clean, fabulous pool and next door to the waitrose by the sea type supermarket. We had no complaints at all and would recommend this villa and the wonderful hosts without hesitation.

A lovely spacious comfortable villa, Marie & Jochen were very welcoming and everything was ready for our arrival even though we were a little earlier than the official check in time. We were a family of five with a two year old, sometimes cots can be too small or not up to par but Marie had made the cot up beautifully and our daughter enjoyed some restful nights sleep :-) garden and pool were kept clean and we enjoyed a couple of bbq's under the pagoda with meat purchased from the very convenient supermarket next door, they also do a take away service if you don't fancy cooking! A little bit of noise from the lorries that deliver to the supermarket early in the mornings but this really is minor. We didn't hire a car as we felt we had everything we needed on the doorstep. Beautiful beach five minutes walk away with three good restaurants and all child friendly.

A really lovely place and I'm sure we will visit again :-)

My husband, 2 children and my parents visited the villa for 10 nights. We had the most relaxing break (as relaxed as you can be with a 4 yr old & 9 month old). The villa was so comfortable and Marie & Jochen had thought of everything! My father is disabled and we found the villa very suitable for him, although this was all checked out with Marie beforehand. Marie & Jochen were so helpful before arrival (via email) and while we were there, such a lovely couple! The garden/pool area was fantastic and we enjoyed BBQ's there. The supermarket next door sold the most delicious meat and other food's. We got a taxi into town a couple of times which only cost 10 euro's, it was lively with more fab restaurants and it made a change from Gale which is lovely and quiet. We didn't hire a car and didn't feel we missed out. We got the bus a few times and taxi's on other occasions. I highly recommend this property and we cannot wait to book again. Thank you again Marie & Jochen. The Everett's & Williams' x

Just returned from a fantastic week at this lovely villa. The place was just perfect for our needs. The location is great and the pictures just don't do it justice. The architectural detail is impressive and the rooms were very comfortable. There are restaurants close by and a grocery store right next door. There was no noise from the store, so don't be worried about that.

We just enjoyed relaxing by the pool and long walks down the beautiful beach, that is very close by. Everything was just glorious.

1st Family to stay in the Villa

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have now rented several vacation villas using the VRBO site and this was the best so far. The house is outstanding and looks even better than the pictures with the pool and garden area perfect for fun in the sun. The location, right beside a great little boutique supermarket and coffee shop and only a 5 min walk to Gale beach, is fantastic. Believe me, we were not at all bothered by any deliveries or traffic from being so close to the supermarket. The owners were very informative and helpful when we were in the early stage of booking and it was truly a pleasure dealing with them. We can’t wait to get back to Algarve and would definitely rent this prosperity again.

Traumhafter Aufenthalt in perfekter Lage

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren 2 Wochen in diesem schönen Haus.

Der Empfang durch Marie und Jochen war herzlich und wir fühlten uns sofort wohl in diesem schönen Haus. In echt ist noch viel schöner und großzügiger als auf den Bildern.

Die Betten sind gut. In der Küche war alles vorhanden was wir brauchten. Der Grillplatz ist wunderbar und der Billardtisch im Keller ist schon ein kleines Zuckerl.

Die Betreuung und der Service Maries ist perfekt. Vor allem weil wir damit gar nicht gerechnet hatten.

Bei einem Problem in einem der Bäder wurde auch sofort von Jochen die Reparatur organisiert.

Die Lage des Hauses ist perfekt. Der Strand nur einen kurzen Fußweg entfernt, Supermarkt nebendran, was will mann /frau mehr?

Vielleicht sieht mann sich bald mal wieder :)
