Amazing villa and location

  • 5 of 5

We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived at the villa to be met Manuel and his wife. We were given a tour of the property and all the amenities were clearly explained. The welcome/grocery pack that Manuel had supplied us with was much appreciated after our journey. Manuel was very helpful and maintained this excellent service through-out our stay. The beach was practically on our door-step, as well as a selection of restaurants/shops within a short walking distance.This villa is ideal for families. We requested the pool to be heated as it was a winter month and Manuel was able to deliver this. We are hoping to return later in the year as we enjoyed our memorable stay!

Holiday arVentos du Mar Villa in Gale' Portugal

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Ventos du Mar in March 2016 and had a wonderful two weeks here. We were made very welcome by the owner Manuel, who could not have done more for us. He left a welcome pack with essentials and took us to the local supermarket the day after we arrived.

The villa has everything you could need, and is very clean. The maids came to clean twice a week, as did the pool cleaner/gardener.

The villa is located a stones throw from the beautiful beach, located at the end of a quiet road. There are a few restaurants very near to the villa, which were lovely and ideal to sit and watch the sun go down from.

There is a large supermarket five minutes walk away, as well as a local shop at the top of the road for essentials.

The villa is very well located for a relaxing holiday, with plenty to do not far away should you wish. Zoo Marine is well worth a visit if you have children.

Great villa, Fantastic location.

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a fantastic two week stay at this Villa. Manuel, the owner was excellent. He met us to take us to the villa and had a welcome pack of some food and drink waiting. He visited or sent a text every few days to make sure everything was ok. The villa is comfortable and well equipped, with a great built in bbq in the garden. The villa was very clean on arrival and was cleaned again mid week with fresh towels left. We slept on the ground floor bedroom with the ensuite, while our two girls slept in the lower ground floor bedrooms, both had bathrooms. English TV was available. The pool and garden was fantastic. Our two girls loved it, particularly the small diving board. The beach is less than two minutes walk, with three great beach bars / restaurants. The furthest one away (only 5mins walks) was great for sun downer drinks. The Alaponia supermarket is less than five minutes drive away and has great range in marinated meats and fish for the BBQ. Other lovely beaches we visited included St Raphael are about five minutes drive (great beach restaurant at St Raphael (and the Sardina Restaurant, next bay along). Aqua Land (water park) was about 15 mins drive and Albefurria about 20 mins to the old town part. Manuel was very helpful and we would recommend staying here.

Beautiful location and fabulous villa

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful villa just up from the beach. As a family we had a fabulous holiday in a lovely clean and modern villa with a large pool.The kitchen was well equipped and clean. All bedrooms were tastefully decorated and spotless. The owners Manuel and Josie were so friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them. The welcome pack was greatly appreciated as was Manuel taking us to the local supermarket on our first day and showing us such kindness. The restaurants and bars in the surrounding area were relaxed and child friendly. We could see Gale beach from our villa which was lovely at night when the sun was setting. The beach is clean and breezy. The little shop around the corner was quaint and the lady who owns it was always smiling and pleasant. You can even have a seat and a coffee and cake and chat amongst the locals in there too. We ate out most evenings, they is always a good selection of food. Jks is a fab restaurant the owners are looking very and so kind also the sports bar next door is great and welcoming too all child friendly. We went to the zoo marine which was later vied by Us All and did other activities. Gale is beautiful, safe , relaxed and full of tradition. We had a fab holiday and will definitely being going back to gale and our (home from home) villa ventos de mar.

A real 'find' and highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

The villa, gardens and pool are superb; perfectly located next to Gale beach, within walking distance of our favourite restaurants. The villa is to a very high standard, comfortable, well appointed and ideal for families; the pool is fantastic - large enough swim properly, and the garden is very well maintained with lots of room for the sunbeds and garden furniture. The location really is 'next to the sea'...just a few yards away. The owner, Manuel was very helpful and a pleasure to meet. All in all, a real 'find' and highly recommended! We will definitely return!
