The CASA VANILLA is our privately owned villa which we have fitted out and maintained to a very high standard.During 2011/2012 we have completely refurbished all four bath and shower rooms finishing them to the highest specification.Our villa is situated just off the road down to the magnificent Gale/ Salgados beach and has the benefit of been close enough to all shops, restaurants,beaches etc but as it is in a position with no traffic passing offers that little extra tranquillity.Whilst it is only few minutes walk to a good selection of bars,restaurants and supermarkets we recommend having some car hire to give yourselves the chance to visit the numerous other attractions just a short drive away
.The VANILLA stands in its own land and is surrounded by walled and hedged gardens making it a totally enclosed and secure property.It is accessed from the exterior through electronic gates
with coded key pads along with a telephone intercom system.The good size garden/patio/pool area with removable gated child SAFETY FENCING is to the south of the villa giving sun virtually all day,it contains the superb full size heated private swimming pool(the pool heating if requested is an additional cost to be agreed prior to arrival) with shallow end and pool lighting for night bathing,alongside the pool is an outside open shower ideal for wash down after a visit to the beach/pool.We supply one pool towel per client for there stay, this saves on luggage capacity but we do ask clients to launder these themselves if required.
There is an abundance of patio furniture with top quality sun loungers,sun umbrellas, tables,chairs etc,but the top
feature on the patio is the fabulous pergola which gives a lovely shaded area,big enough for everyone to sit and is
ideal for al- fresco meals.The covered feature barbeque complete with all bbq implements is close by as is the laundry room with washing machine for clients use.
