Guestbook comments from the manager

Beautiful villa in Algarve

We really appreciated our staying in the villa because it is very comfortable and it is located in a very quiet area.

Maybe one of the three bedroom was a little bit too small for two adults.

Perfect Villa for Amazing Algarve Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This Villa was perfect for my wife and I for the 11 days we spent in the Algarve. Well appointed, spotless and well laid out- we wanted for nothing. We were impressed that there was a welcome pack upon our arrival- Portuguese buns, cheese, ham, butter, milk, coffee, tea, juice and cold beer- very thoughtful! The service from all the staff at Principal was outstanding, including arranging taxis to/from Faro Airport, car rental at the villa- even an in-home orientation of the property, information on the surrounding areas, shopping, beaches, restaurants, excursions- any assistance we required with was promptly and courteously dealt with- simply outstanding. All amenities noted in the property listing were exactly as described- WiFi, satellite TV, security system all in perfect order. The villa is located in Sesmerias- a more suburban/rural area closer to Gale than Albufeira- exactly what we were looking for to avoid the crowds and noise of the cities. Easy access to the various highways and main roads to explore all of the Algarve region by car. The villa is in an area of farms and orchards- the fragrance of citrus, figs and olives is intoxicating. Sunsets, moon and star gazing from the master bedroom deck was very romantic. The villas pool was cool and refreshing during the hot days- we chose not to have it heated but to each their own. A highlight for us was poolside bbq- we grilled steaks, lamb, Piri chicken, sausages, fresh seafood, vegetables- we went through a LOT of charcoal! Walking distance to fine dining at Jompra Restaurant- not to be missed- amazing food and service, incredible wine stock, great prices. The sommelier suggested an off- menu reserve red from the Douro that rocked our world- for little more than the cost of the house wine! Complimentary Port is served post meal, but as we were already drinking 12 yr. old single malt and Hennessy VSOP the owner first generously refilled our glasses then comp'd our drinks- superb! Fun and great value is Scooby's Bar just a 5 min. walk away- nice deep pool, mini-golf, foosball, great burgers/fries, snacks, tasty cocktails. 5-15 minute walk to probably a dozen other bars and grills in the area. About 20-30 minute walking the most amazing beaches and coves- many with restaurants. 25 minute walk to Gale beach and more seaside fish grills. (notice a theme here?!) Fish markets and grocery stores are also all within walking distance. We would not hesitate to stay here again should we return to the area.

Located in sesmarias not far from Galé beach and close to the 'Blue Flag' Castello beach, approx.1.5kms. There are many restaurants and bars in the area within easy walking distance.
