About the property

The Villa Almond Gare is a property with about 2. 200 mt2 and 350 mt2 of construction. It's all fenced with automatic gate situated in the heart of the Algarve. Just minutes away from many of its beautiful beaches, it is able to provide a complete rest as few villas but at the same time and within minutes be at the center of nightlife or major shopping malls and beaches, golf courses, theme parks or historic towns and cities. The Villa Almond Gare was built and furnished thinking about conforfo and well-being of those on holiday, in a relaxed manner but at the same time with quality and harmony. This occurs in the inside, as in the large investment made in the outer areas, the level of the pool area, barbeque, dining area and lounge, gardens etc. We think of their welfare, comfort safety and health.

Wonderful villa

  • 5 of 5

First of all, do not hesitate to book this Villa! It's is lovely, just as you see on the photos only better. We arranged with the owners to drop off our luggage after our early flight so we could then go and get our shopping before 3 pm check in. We were met by the lovely Vera who showed us around the whole Villa while her team were cleaning it.

The villa is very spacious and everything is of the highest quality and very clean.

We were a party of two families, a total of 9 guests. We had an extra bed put in the downstairs twin ensuite. There is plenty of storage in all the bedrooms although the two upstairs are smaller rooms than the ground floor, they still have enough storage. Air conditioning worked perfectly in each room also.

Both kitchens are well equipped, both having a dishwasher, fridge freezer, kettle, toaster along with loads of crockery and cutlery in each. There is a hob in the outside kitchen but no oven.

The outside kitchen seating area is where we spent most of our time and it was fabulous, very comfortable. There is glass all round protecting it from the wind we had on a few days.

The laundry room also was excellent, it has a washer and a dryer plus an iron and ironing board and also a seperate shower and loo and sink, which we used when we were in the garden. There is a whirlybwashing line with pegs.

There is also a table tennis table in the garden which our boys were thrilled about as they thought there was only a pool table and we made good use of this.

We had a special anniversary whilst we were there and the owners recommended and booked a restaurant for us in Armacao de Pera for lunch which was fab, also we arranged through them to organise a decorated cake and flowers which Vera brought over on the morning of the anniversary. This was all arranged so effortlessly by email before we left. Vera brought also bottle of champagne for the anniversary and also baked a cake half way through our holiday.

We have stayed in several villas now and without doubt this is the best we have stayed in. The pool is amazing, temperature always nice and huge. You do need a car and the supermarkets are at least 10 minutes away, we used Aldi at Armacao Lidl at Silves. And the Intermarche in Lagoa, all good, preferring the Intermarche. If you love getting away from it all with wonderful peace and quiet and a beautiful villa, this is for you. We are already looking at the rest of Spring Villas to book again. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Wonderful holiday in luxury villa

  • 5 of 5

This is a very special villa. The location is out of the way and breathtaking. We were so lucky to spend a week in July and it was wonderful. Our group had three generations and the kids loved it as much as the grandparents. The stunning gardens surround the most amazing pool. It has a great shallow end for little ones ( or grannies who fancy cooling off without swimming!) and a deeper section if you fancy a even has a jacuzzi jet section! There is also a second (full) kitchen and large outdoor eating space for al fresco dining in the evening next to the pool. Inside comfortable and independently operated air conditioning keeps all the bedrooms really comfortable however hot it is. Downstairs rooms had metal shutters for extra security and helped keep the light out at bedtime for the kids. The beds are really comfortable, the owners clearly have aimed this villa at the top end.

The upstairs games room and bar area rounds off a wonderful family friendly villa. There are some amazing beaches and towns within exploring distance, but we felt little need to wander too far from this fabulous villa.

Book now, you won't be disappointed....wait and the secret will be out and you won't get a look in....fantastic property that will become a firm favourite with holiday makers I am sure, as the owners are brilliant and helpful and the local management team really may even be lucky enough to get a delicious homemade cake from the wonderful Vera.

Absolutely Beautiful

Wow!!! What a beautiful villa. We travelled with our two grandchildren aged 10 months and 5 years and the accommodation and location were perfect for us. The pool is amazing. Thankyou to Vera who made our stay so comfortable. Would definitely recommend it .

Our stay over all was absolutely perfect! We arrived at the house and were greeted by the nicest and friendliest hosts. We had some trouble getting to the house but Miguel was kind enough to meet us and show us the way the the villa. Once we arrived everything was much more gorgeous than the photos! The villa had all the amenities you would need and more, very clean and spacious. We had an extra person staying with us and the owners had put an extra bed in one of the rooms which was perfect. We had a very relaxing week and could not have had a better time. The VIlla is close to Silves town which is so beautiful and historic and only a drive away from the beach. During our stay we needed a charger and Miguel was kind enough to find one and bring it to us. We will definitely return back to this property or any of the other ones they own.

PS: Thank you for the Homemade Cake and the oranges you guys provided us with, it was a nice touch!

Thank you.

Amazing villa in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky enough to be the first people to stay in this Villa, and we were not disappointed. The villa itself is stunning with everything you could want. The best bit for me was the outdoor BBQ/kitchen/lounge which is where I spent the majority of my time. It was a very relaxing place to be and you're not overlooked by anyone. The Villa was extremely clean and very well maintained which you would expect from a brand new property.

We travelled with my young son who is 3.5 years old and he loved the place as much as I did. The pool was fantastic for him with a shallow end which gradually got deeper so he was able to play in it with no trouble.

The owners couldn't do enough for us and were probably the best villa owners we have ever come across. They were all so friendly and nothing was any trouble. They also came in twice during our stay to change towels and cleaned once while we were there, which was great.

I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a nice relaxing break in an amazing villa, and it will cater to any family requirements, with or without children.
