This truly magnificent tastefully furnished detached villa offers an abundance of features inc. indoor and private outdoor pools, sauna, steam room, jacuzzi & games room. An exceptional feature of the villa is the fantastic sea views from the terraces & roof terrace, the sunset simply has to be seen to be believed. There is a covered terraced area leading out from the kitchen giving the opportunity for Al Fresco dining. The spacious open plan living room offers floor to ceiling windows to 2 sides offering a light and relaxing atmosphere. All bedrooms have en-suite facilities. Each floor is accessible via a lift. The sun terrace, roof terrace & gardens offer many places to relax, sunbathe and entertain. The villa is a five minute walk from several award winning beaches including Gale, Lorenco, Castelo, Evansto, Coelha & San Rafael. A wide variety of bars and restaurants including Vila Joya which is a 2 Michelin star restaurant are also within walking distance of the villa.
The family opinion in general, was that the villa is simply outstanding in every single aspect.
Perfectly sized for two families with kids, completely furnished on every single detail... Not to talk about the perfect location and the amazing sea view...JUST PERFECT (congratulations to the owner)
We have had a wonderful time, the villa is amazing very clean and modern and is in the perfect place to enjoy the surrounding area and the stunning views. It was much bigger than we imagined the sauna and steam room and the 2 pools were just fantastic.
We had a great time in the villa. It really is outstanding and it made a truly relaxing and enjoyable holiday.
We stayed in this villa as a group of 10 young austrian adults to celebrate the end of our stressful school years in a relaxing way. Upon arrival we were fascinated by the size and modernness of this lovely villa.
The kitchen has everything you need (including an ice dispenser for hot summer days), the living room sofa is very comfortable, the bedrooms are spacious, the bathrooms are very clean and the downstairs play area was a cool place to hang out when it was too hot outside.
The pool was very clean and at a perfect temperature to cool down in.
The roof terrace has a lovely sitting area where we spent many hours talking and listening to music when it got cooler during the evenings. The view towards the sea is also fantastic from up there.
Up the road there is a restaurant called "Quinta de Gale" with a taxi ramp just next to main road, where we asked the Taxi company "Gale Holidays" to pick us up from. The taxi drivers were always very friendly and their prices were very cheap.
We were all very pleased with the villa and it's location and would happily stay in it again if we were planning the same holiday!
This was our second year at Serenity and it again lived up to all our needs and expectations. With two young grandchildren (7 + 4) and four adults our needs were mixed. Good pool and play areas; good kitchen and BBQ as eating in is easier; plenty of terrace space / quiet places to escape to. This house has it all. Yes, there is some building work being done at a large hotel some distance away, but there was no noticeable noise or disturbance; the neighbouring rooster was louder (but who doesn't like country sounds when in the country?!). As mentioned by others there is an extremely good Apolonia supermarket a short walk away (and they will call you a taxi home); fresh fruit / veg / meat / fish and all the cupboard items. Several lovely beaches are also no more than fifteen minutes walk and each has good restaurants.
This house really offers everything including the best of help from Kate in the UK and her local team in Portugal. We didn't bother with a car and her taxi firm were perfect for the airport trips
You cannot fail to have a good time here
Fabulous villa with excellent facilities in a marvellous location close to many award winning beaches and restaurants. The villa had convenient access to Albufiera and Gale with convenient supermarkets and facilities nearby. The villa is situated in a quiet cul de sac and has a wonderful sea view. I would definitely return for another visit in the future.
A fantastic villa in a great location.Very spacious .There are several terraces so you can have sun or shade at any time.A well equipped kitchen with decent size fridge and freezer.great facilities such as steam and sauna and games area.Many beaches a short drive or easy walk- very clean.There is a good supermarket that stocks all you could want .The booking manager couldn't have been more helpful.Great communication from Kate either phone or email.All in all a fantastic holiday .
We have stayed in some beautiful Villa over the years, but OMG this place will just blow you away. if you want to live the life of Footballer, WAG, Superstar for a couple of weeks then this is the villa for you. 2 weeks of pure luxury.
We were looking for a Villa for 4 Adults and 2 grown up Children/young adults somewhere within walking distance of shops /bars /restaurants but not to lively. Its not easy to please everyone with an age range of 13 to 70+,
but this Villa ticks all the boxes.
Pool table , Table Tennis, Darts are great for those 'family times' .
Steam room, Sauna, Indoor pool are excellent for those relaxing times.
Gym is small yet adequate for those early morning workouts/ to work up a thirst.
With grown up kids 'WIFI' is now essential. The WIFI in the villa is great, even outside the reception is OK.
Lounge is gorgeous with everything you could want, especially for those film nights.
Kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need.
Bedrooms are all a really good size. The 2 bedrooms on the 1st floor have a massive balcony and lovely view in the morning.
Security at the Villa is also top notch, fully alarmed and shutters on all the Windows for added security.
Local area includes a restaurant at the top of the Cul de Sac, small supermarket 5mins away which has everything you need
for the essentials and the main Supermarket is a 10mins walk, 2mins taxi ride
The Beaches are gorgeous, Gales beach has a couple of nice restaurants and lovely little bar. But there is a closer little beach, with a beautiful 'fish' restaurant, (Evaristo) no menu just a pick of fish of the day. (does do some meat dishes) Definitely worth a visit.
All in all, Villa is amazing, Gale is beautiful albeit quiet, but Albufeira is only 10mins in a Taxi if you want something a bit more lively.
Just a final comment about the service from Kate (Fisher). From start to finish the Service has been excellent, Easy booking process, regular contact, Kate gives you the confidence you are in safe hands.
We were looking for somewhere to stay in Portugal with four adults and two young children; pool / garden / BBQ / en-suite bathrooms essential. We could not have found anything to top Serenity
The house layout is perfect with bedrooms on the ground and first floors. All large and with en-suites. The first floor rooms have the advantage of a terrace and wonderful views but all are very well furnished and a good size. The top floor terrace was wonderful for an evening drink watching the sunset.
The indoor pool is shallow and was perfect for paddling with the three-year old, but he soon joined his bigger brother in the outside "real" pool. Both are a good size and more than enough for a family. Table tennis and snooker filled in the competition gaps when it was too hot to sit outside
There are lovely beaches only a short walk away and both have bars and restaurants. There is an excellent supermarket about fifteen minutes walk (taxi home) with everything you could want; superb fresh fish and butcher as well. We opted for pizza the first night as we arrive late. Great restaurant about one minute up the road. There are also things we didn't try, like the water park and sealife centre but both had good reviews
Kate organised the booking, taxi pickup and return and answered all the questions we had about WiFi / DVDs etc; couldn't have been better. They even supplied a starter pack with the food essentials for the first morning.
I would happily recommend this house to families, friends and anyone looking for a break in a lovely location. Ok, there is an abandoned part-built hotel not far away, but it doesn't spoil the view and if that is the only thing I can find to moan about ..... We'll be going back!
