Fabulous holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a wonderful holiday in Gale. This was our fourth, each time we have enjoyed our holiday.

This time was made extra special by the team behind this villa!

On searching for a villa to accommodate our party of 12, we came across Casa Monteiro. It had all the criteria to meet our needs and was much better value than the previous villas we had stayed in.

I contacted them and was greeted with an email by return from Surah. From the start, the process of booking was friendly and efficient. I was a little worried at first as there had been so many scare stories of scams in the press about booking direct with the owners. I need not have worried.

We were due to arrive at the villa about 12 noon. Access to the villa was available from 2pm to allow for cleaning from previous guests. However we were warmly greeted by Maria the housekeeper and our luggage was safely stored in the villa whilst we went to get some lunch. When we returned the villa was pristine!

During the holiday Maria kept the villa beautifully clean with visits every other day, thoroughly cleaning & changing towels etc.

The pool area was great, very spacious and got the sun from sunrise to sunset. With lots of sunloungers & mattresses!

Dining was lovely under the gazebo

All the bedrooms were comfortable, each with its own bathroom.

The villa is very well situated with the beaches just a stones throw away. There are plenty of restaurants serving delicious Portuguese food and a couple of bars within easy walking distance

If you are looking for a relaxing, comfortable holiday. This is the villa for you.
