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.

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

Perfect holiday villa for a large family or group of friends

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from staying in this perfect villa. It is very spacious and well equipped for a large family or group of friends. The pool is large and well laid out with plenty of sun beds, towels and parasols. The garden is pretty with lots of colourful flowers. The Wendy house was much appreciated by our four year old granddaughter. I would recommend paying for the pool to be heated as we did as this meant we could have early morning swims. The villas interiors are well designed and every thing is clean and in good order thanks to the 3 times a week maid service. I can't think of anything that was missing! The supermarket is within a 15 minute walk, but be aware prices are more expensive than in the UK. We would recommend Mr Singhs Indian at the end of the road. Our biggest thanks goes to the taxi drivers who are very good. A special mention for Pedro who drove us all over to Aqua land, Albufeira old town (many times) & the beach at Armacao de Pera. He is very friendly & helpful man who will fit you in at short notice and also return to pick you back up later which is great when you are traveling with a 4 year old and a baby. Overall, a great holiday for all ages, we would definitely return.

Excellent holiday thanks to superb villa

  • 5 of 5

Villa Barros exceeded our expectations. The provisions left for us on arrival was a lovely touch and very welcome, very appreciative. Six adults and two grandchildren 2 and 3 but we all had our own space if we wanted.

Upstairs was allocated to our newly engaged son and fiance which was fantastic as they had their own space to retreat to. The other adult bedrooms had own patio area to sit and relax/read if needed. The Villa was spotless and cleaned twice in our week and also towels changed. The pool was also cleaned regularly. We loved the privacy of the Villa not overlooked at all and pretty garden with heated pool a definite must and used all through holiday. Little ones confidence and swimming skills improved throughout the week. The lemon tree supplied us with slices of lemon in our drinks.

Beach a little further than we thought took us about 25 minutes to walk (we are mid-60's). There was a supermarket about 10/15 minutes away and level walk, on our first shop we did get a taxi back, don't forget to get the turkey and lamb kebabs for BBQ they were delicious.

The restaurant on the beach Pedras Amarelas was superb, food and service was second to none not to mention the fantastic view. Price quite high but worth it at least once. The restaurant at the top of the road Do Ti-manel was also very good and just a couple of minutes walk away, very popular, lots of people were queuing while we were eating and were still there at 9.00 must book.

I could go on with all the positives but have to stop sometime!!!

Our first experience of Portugal and Villa Barros together with the very friendly Portuguese people made it a holiday not to be forgotten. Many thanks to all, we will be back.
