Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a fabulous time,the weather was good and the villa was as advertised.The first week my wife and I were on our own and the second week ,my son and daughter came out.My daughter brought her six month old baby boy.The high chair was supplied and also his cot. The pool was fantastic and was warm,the family loved it and so did the baby.Shops are close by and also some nice restaurants.My wife and I had no car for first week but everything we needed was in walking distance.We booked a taxi through the owners it was spotless and the driver could not have been more helpful.We shall use Algarveholidays again.Paramount for me was the security and the maid service .Peter.

Great pool, villa and service need some improvement

  • 3 of 5

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.

  • 4 of 5

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.

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.

Lovely villa good location

  • 4 of 5

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.

Property lovely, spacious, very clean. Lovely pool and gardens..

  • 4 of 5

The only negative was that there were baby travel cots left in rooms including dining room and two baby chairs. One cot outside. Would have preferred if removed as not required. Also there were 8 of us but only 6 sunbeds.
