About Sharon Milliken

We rent out villa in the summer months when our family are not staying there.

We treat it as our home rather than villa we just rent out,

Sharon Milliken purchased this villa in 2000

Why Sharon Milliken chose Gorjões

The villa is in a very quiet location away from the hustle and bustle of towns, yet is only about 15 minutes away from the supermarkets and about 25 minutes from the beach.

What makes this villa unique

If you want a quiet holiday and want to just relax by your own private pool, read a book whilst enjoying the sun this villa is for you. You will not have to worry if you have a sun lounger, and you will have as much space as you want to enjoy the 5 mt by 10 mt pool.

If you would like any further details please call 01708 700887

Most Relaxing holiday ever

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here last year and it really was the best holiday we ever had. We had some questions which were answered by the owner, they even gave us a lot of tips to save money on our flights and car hire. We wanted a quiet time so our family could relax and just sit round the pool, and read a book. Well we had that in spades and ended up reading 5 books!!.

The villa is beautiful inside and out and the top floor bedroom en-suite bathroom with a large outside terrace was great. The other bedrooms were equally nice the other guest room bathroom upstairs was completely tiled with Pink Marble it really was a WOW.

The kitchen has everything we have at home, including a dishwasher. The work surfaces are all granite which really makes it look nice. There is plenty of room prepare everything to take outside and cook on the barbeque.

The outside terrace was fantastic to sit on in the evening and there are fantastic sunsets, which look even better when you have a glass or two of wine.

Overall, a perfect holiday with the advantage of the local English speaking management company on hand, which is great help. We also had free Wi-Fi as well so we could just check our emails from the pool.

I am just getting round to writing the review now, as we have just rebooked it for 2016.

Owner's Response: Hi Jenny, Thanks for the review, glad you enjoyed your holiday and that you have booked again again this year. We have our own holidays in the villa rather than keep it as just a villa that is rented out all year, So we take a lot of care that everything is just as you would expect at home. Look as though you will have to take a few more books with you, so you can relax !! The sunsets are beautiful most evenings, I admit the glass of wine is quite pleasant as well. See you again next year.

This was the first time we booked this villa as we normally have package holidays. The directions we had to get to the villa from the owners were really easy to follow and even included directions to get to the supermarkets!.

We arrived at 10am and the villa in real life is lovely. It was very clean and the pool was lovely and warm. There is a management company that look after the villa and the chap came up to make sure we had settled in and if there was anything we wanted just call.

It was so peaceful during the day as well, we both work hard during the year and look forward to just reading by the pool on holiday.

After being on package trips previously, it took some getting used to lying in bed watching the sun rise and sauntering down to "OUR OWN POOL" and not tryng to get your towels laid out before the sun comes up otherwise you used to get the sunbed right out the back !!

In summary it was so great we have have already booked for 2014 this time for longer. If you want chill out, have peace and quiet this is the place to go.
