A lovely villa
A lovely spacious villa. It was very clean and very well stocked with crockery, glasses, cutlery etc. Plenty of sunbeds, chairs and a great pool. There was hot water available all the time and the bathrooms were spotless. Beds were comfortable although sheets were a little small for the beds and air conditioning worked well . We had one problem when the pool became a bit cloudy which we reported and it was dealt with within an hour, very impressive!
Great pool, villa and service need some improvement
Spacious and very clean villa in a quiet location, easy reach of restaurants and supermarket on foot if you can walk 1/4-1/2 a mile carrying your shopping, nice beach a bit further, 5 minutes by car. The style is old fashioned, Air-con in lounge is not effective for the size of room, ALL the beds very hard so beware if you prefer softer comforts. We were promised 3 sets of keys in advance and only ever got two, and had to chase for the second set. Satellite TV yes, but don’t count on a channel in your language, we only had Sky News in English to start with until we complained and they re set it, and no entertainment channels other than 30 year old repeat programs, so it was useless for us. The kitchen has plenty of space, lots of cupboards, almost everything you might need to cook a meal, but again beware, you cannot use both the electric oven and electric hob at the same time without tripping the fuse, and that is in a locked room, so as cookers go it is semi-useless if you are cooking for a family. We paid for pool heating and it was a bit cool the first two days and last two days, so not sure if we got it heated or not. The large pool and pool area are lovely, not overlooked, spacious, lots of sun beds, and a rack to dry towels and costumes. They say the maid lives in the downstairs apartment, it should say maid and her family, their barbecue caused the villa fire alarm to trigger because they barbecued directly under the villa kitchen window. Also they keep ducks in a corner enclosure with no room to range and no soil or grass to graze, in hot conditions, with little shade and little bathing water, IT’S CRUEL, PLEASE STOP THIS. It is very upsetting to see this every time you go out to the pool. If it was in the UK I would report it to the RSPCA. In general this was an OK holiday, but lots of things need improving to make it a great place to holiday. I would give Villa Clara 6 out of 10, the area 8 out of 10, the concept of a villa holiday 10 out of 10. Would I stay there again, NO, would I stay in Gale again, YES, would I recommend this villa, NO.
Great pool and outside area, we loved every minute.
We booked very easily using the website and Florence dealt with all our needs, she was very organised and on the ball with every little item of the letting.
The villa itself is a little tired in places, but that adds to the character and allowed us all to relax with the kids running around. One improvement we would recommend is a bigger fridge..... 8 adults and two kids really struggled!
There was an issue with the outside sun umbrella that got damaged whilst we were out, but Florence soon dealt with that quickly and efficiently, as soon as I explained that we had been out all day and arrived home to find the pool man had taken it apart and not us it was all fine.
The pool and barbecue area really was where we spent the time, our friends villa up the road only had a ladder, ours was perfect with steps for the kids to gain their confidence.
We would book again without hesitation.
Loved the villa and it's location tucked away in a cul de sac. 10 mins walk to beach.
Ad good as the pictures. Everything you need inside, two restaurants at the top of the street and a great cafe about 5 mins walk. Beaches and supermarket not too far.
Thank you for your review.
Hope you had a lovely time and come back soon.
Lovely property most enjoyable
Lovely villa good location
Really loved this villa. It was generous in size, clean and had great amenities. Pool was lovely and the ping pong was great!
Maid wasnt visible but when needed she was there, a lovely lady. Really good location to shops/restaurant and beaches. Only issue was the air con which was either tempremental or too cold but didn't impact our stay. Would definitely go back!
Have been to the area several times and this is definitely the best large villa we have stayed in.
This villa is located at the end of a cul-de-sac, off the road to the ' Blue Flag' beaches of Galé. The beaches are only 1km so within easy walking distance. There are lovely rural views to the rear of the property. There are several good restaurants within walking distance, with two, just at the end of the road. One of these is a very popular fish restaurant. The property is totally enclosed by a wall and gates. There is a mosaic tiled swimming pool 9m x 4.5m with steps, which is surrounded by terraces with a BBQ and shower in the pool area. Albufeira town with its interesting Old Town and music bars, and the marina are 6 km away, around 10 minutes drive. Guia town is 5km and is famous for many good value restaurants many specialising in chicken piri piri. The nearest supermarket is 300m. Algarve Shopping the largest shopping complex in the region is a 10 minutes drive, with Multiplex Cinemas ( majority of films in English )
Golf: Salgados Golf is 2km.
