Guestbook comments from the manager

Another fabulous week at Villa Barros. The Villa has a brand new and extended kitchen this year plus the downstairs bathrooms have recently been upgraded - this enhances the already high standard of accommodation and facilities at the villa. Villa Barros is a 4 bedroom (3 en-suites plus a family bathroom)individually designed two storey private and reasonably priced villa located at the end of a Close of some 7 or so detached villas. The air-conditioned and spacious Villa is not over-looked and is both secure and quiet; the villa has a good sized clean pool. It is well equipped and kept spotlessly clean. The master bedroom occupies the whole of the first floor, has front and rear balconies and has a large well fitted en-suite with large walk-in shower. The Villa is within easy walking distance of good quality restaurants (try Sao Domingos for fine dining)and coffee shops (Docaria Almeixar is a must !). The excellent beach at Gale is a 15 minute walk or 5 minutes by car (we particularly enjoy an evening stroll on the beach followed by a meal and sun-downer at the Gale Beach Restaurant). There is an Apolonia supermarket (bit pricey but good quality) 5 mins by car or a substantial Continente about 10 mins near to Guia. Albufeira is about a 15 min drive and is also served by local buses. The Villa is managed locally by the Principal Office; staff as always very helpful and efficient. We have been to this Villa a number of times and keep coming back as it provides a high standard of private accommodation at an affordable price in an excellent location.

Excellent Villa

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a 2 week stay at Villa Barros. We are two families, with 3 grown-up children, so 7 adults. However, the villa was spacious enough to accommodate us all. In fact, it was bigger than it looked on the website. We enjoyed the pool, which was regularly cleaned and also the maid service. We had numerous BBQ's and ate outside every meal. Being at the end of a cul-de-sac the villa was secluded and quiet.

We liked Gale, particularly the beach and its numerous bars, and would recommend it for a relaxing beach holiday.

Excellent villa, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

The villa was absolutely fantastic, it had all of the equipment and comfort you are looking for when wanting a lovely week away with family. Although there was only three of us (2 adults and an 18 month old) we love s the space that the villa offered and the outside area was great. Although there was a limited view, it was so peaceful and private which we really appreciated. The bathrooms, bedrooms and kitchen were all lovely, and the twice weekly clean was very welcome. Thank you to all of the staff that attended the villa, they did a great job.

We did unfortunately have a power cut the first three nights but as soon as the team at the Principal office found out they rectified the problem within the hour - which was a short in the external lights. The only delay was due to the cyber attack as we didn't realise our messages weren't getting through initially.

Florence was so helpful prior to arrival and answered all of our questions. The welcome basket on arrival was very welcome after a 4.30am start to get there.

The villa is located perfectly, restaurants in walking distance, a supermarket and beach also in walking distance but we had hired a car which made things much easier with a little one. Gale beach was beautiful and we spent each morning there which our daughter loved and then afternoons out or by the pool. If you hire a car and don't want to spend a small fortune on food, there is an Aldi on site next to makro where we saved a small fortune but got some delicious food.

Overall, we would highly recommend this villa, and although we don't usually return to the same place twice we would definitely consider it a small it was so good for a family holiday.

Lovely villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week in August 2016 and loved it. The villa is really lovely, very clean and spacious. The pool is a really good size and we enjoyed many days and evening outside around this area using the bbq and just relaxing. The villa is very private and is not overlooked. It has a well equipped kitchen and has everything you could need. There are even a few games and a selection of books to read. All the bathrooms are lovely and clean and as you see in the photos. We did walk to the beach one day which took about 15 mins but we found it more convenient to drive to the Salgados beach which has a large car park and is only about a 2-3 minute drive and was a little quieter as the beaches were very busy. We enjoyed an Indian takeaway one evening and this is within a 2 minute walk. We would definitely recommend this villa, it is lovely.

Très belle villa a proximité de la plage, des commerces et des restaurants

  • 4 of 5

Villa située dans une impasse calme du quartier de Galé et a proximité (à pied) de la plage, du supermarché et de plusieurs restaurants agréables.

Les chambres sont spacieuses avec chacune leur salle de bain, elles-mêmes en très bon état.

Salon et salle à manger bien aménagés, cuisine bien équipée.

Espace extérieur pas très grand mais fonctionnel, piscine chauffée très agréable.

Agence professionnelle et à l'écoute

En résumé, très bon séjour à la villa barros
