About Mrs Sam Veal

We fell in love with this area of the Algarve. The villa, was completed in April 2009 and a labour of love. I hope anyone staying in it appreciates our lovely holiday home as much as we do. We only wish we could be there more often! Sam Veal - Leatherhead, Surrey, UK

Mrs Sam Veal purchased this villa in 2009

Guestbook comments from the owner

“Fantastic villa”

5 of 5 stars Reviewed 25 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

This is a fantastic villa superb location near Gale and the service you receive from Sam the owner is second to none. You will not be disappointed.

“Lovely villa with all mod cons, very quiet but spacious”

Reviewed 1 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Stayed for two weeks during September and found the villa to be very comfortable with everything you need for a lovely holiday stay. Sam and Tracey have been very accommodating and the whole process was simple but efficient. The weather wasn't the best so we made the most of the pool which was warm even without the heating. Would also recommend a night at Scooby's, they do lovely cocktails if you're into that sort of thing


5 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Had an 11 day stay at this wonderful villa. Well equipped very spacious rooms plenty of room for the 6 people in our party. Spent most days lying by the private pool, had a bbq on some nights. But within 5 minutes walk there is a sports bar with English channels showing any kind of sport you wish to watch and they serve fabulous chicken piri piri, across the road is Jompra restaurant which is top class. A 15 minute walk to the beach and the big supermarket, taxi's are quite reasonable only E8 into Albuferia. Highly recommended this villa for value, location, comfort and relaxing.

“One of our best family holidays ever!”

5 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014 We stayed in Villa Trinity for 2 weeks in May. The owners were very professional and answered any queries almost immediately, which took away a lot of the stress of booking a holiday. The directions we were given from the airport to he villa were spot on, very easy to follow and easily within an hour drive. When we arrived the villa was very clean and tidy and there were a few little extras that we weren't expecting like beach sun loungers and chairs, a cupboard with lots of books, DVDs and kids toys and a trunk full of pool inflatables. On first appearances the villa seemed a bit isolated (located within a housing area with lots of other villas) and not within easy walking distance of any bars, restaurants etc but after a little drive and walk around we soon found we were within a 10 minute easy walk to several places and a 20 minute walk would give us a pretty big selection to choose from. The villa was exactly as advertised and I wouldn't hesitate to book it again, in fact we're looking at doing exactly that next year.

Beaches-Lorenco beach was our favourite, no sunbeds, no parasols, just sand sea, sun and rockpools. The kids loved it and was very easy to access via a boardwalk from the carparks. The beach served drinks, snacks as well as full meals. We ate there quite often at lunchtime and never had a bad meal. They served a good coffee and an even better jug of Sangria ;-) We also visited Gale beach, nice but a bit more

Modern, well equipped villa near beach

  • 5 of 5

Just back from a lovely long weekend at Villa Trinity and from the time of booking to arriving home everything was exactly as promised and the communication excellent. From welcome packs being emailed to the gate key arriving before we left the UK everything was really well organised. Once we arrived at the villa too we were impressed with how well-equipped it was and the different rooms with their individual bathrooms and terraces. Clean, tidy and Tracey on hand for advice should you need it. The local supermarket, Apolonia, was well stocked and just a short drive away so supper on the terrace was a treat. Good beaches and restaurants a short drive or walk away and the pool was clean and warm (book pool heating!). All in all a great stay and we'll definitely be back.

Easter 2016

  • 5 of 5

Where to start?

Perhaps the excellent communications prior to arrival with all the information needed which put us at ease when travelling to a new venue.

Or the ease of booking before and locating the villa after travelling?

All in all everything that was needed for our holiday was made available by Sam.

The villa was superb, spotless and very comfortable. Privacy was second to none and having all amenities within a short distance meant we didn't have to travel far and use the car unless we wanted to. 10 minutes to the shops, restaurants and beach and a short drive to the marina.

The pool was clean and safe and a nice touch was that if going with children the were lots of inflatable toys and float Aids in the pool box to use.

All bedrooms had a private balcony which is good to have some time to yourselves if needed. Everything needed. A Real home from home

All in all excellent value for money and a hidden gem for those who miss it.

I will definitely be adding this villa to my list of favourite places and look forward to a return.

Myself and 5 members of my family stayed here for 10 nights, and we can all gladly say this villa is fantastic!!! From the start of booking the villa Sam Veal the owner is ever so efficient and ensured we were well equipped ready for our arrival, any emails with queries Sam replied promptly and ensured we had no problems! Tracey the rep visited us on the first day to ensure we had everything we needed and everything was working which is something we have never had in a villa before, she was friendly and extremely helpful!! The villa is a fantastic size with plenty of space, extremely clean and equipped with everything we needed - even plug adapters for engogh equipment! Our air con broke due to a power cut which was of no ones fault however Tracey brought fans and ensured we was as comfortable as we could be and kept us updated with the fixing of it. The villa is in a good location, 10 min walks to the nearest beach and there are numerous resteraunts and supermarkets near by! The taxis are cheap to the old town and the strip and driver are all friendly with good English. Overall we had a fantastic holiday and can not thank Sam and Tracey enough for making it one to remember!

Villa Trinity

  • 5 of 5

This was a holiday for my family and grandchild of under a year.

A cot and a high chair had been provided.

The villa was in a nice quiet location with everything we need just a pleasant short walk away.

This villa is very spacious with plenty of bathrooms and all the kitchen facilities that were required. The pool was clean and heated, with plenty of sun loungers.

The villa is new and modern with clean, fresh bed linen and towels.

I would most definitely recommend this villa and will probably be going back in the next couple of years.

The owner made the whole booking process easy and was very helpful.

I would recommend JKS bar, as they were very helpful with travel information. Food was also good.

Car: recommended


Our nearest beach is Laurenco, 15 mins stroll, with a lovely beach bar restaurant wc and showers. Gale beach, 5km long sandy beach is only 1km. The beach and golf course of Salgados beach 5 mins drive. There are more beaches in the vicinity which are worth visiting, such as São Rafael and Coelho beach. Many of them have wonderful beach restaurants and snack bars (sea food recommended!) where you can enjoy the sea view and the natural beauty of the various coves and long stretches of sand.


Faro airport is approximately 40 minutes drive. A car is recommended but not essential.


Albufeira is about 10 minutes drive. The nearest beach Laurenco is about 10-15 minutes walk. There are also shops and restaurants within 10 minutes walk.

Further Details:

5 -10 mins walk to shops and restaurants. There is also a variety of water parks nearby (within a 20kms range), including Zoomarine theme park (where you can swim with the dolphins) and through the year you will have the chance to come across several festivals, fairs and markets that area worth a visit.

The Albufeira marina is only a short drive away and offers a wide selection of bars and restaurants. Albufeira old town is approximately 5kms away. This is where you will find an active nightlife for the ones seeking for entertainment, or a shopping paradise for all tastes and pockets in the cobbled pedestrian streets.
