About Jacqueline and Patrick Lumley
We are Patrick and Jackie Lumley, we live in Essex, we have 3 children and we live in Loughton in Essex. We love the Costa de La Luz area - the beaches, towns, Conil, Verjer de La Frontera, the history of the area - Cadiz, Jerez, Seville, this is traditional Spain and you really get the feel for it here in this fantastic area.
Jacqueline and Patrick Lumley purchased this Villa in 2005
Why Jacqueline and Patrick Lumley chose Chiclana de la Frontera
The Costa de La Luz offers good weather, beautiful beaches, and traditional Spain, we feel the area and the house offers everything you need for a family holiday. at first we were thinking of buying a small apartment, we were shown the land opposite the golf course with the little finca, (the original house of the land) and eventually built the house and designed the gardens - it was a huge project and a little daunting! Eventually it was built and now we have this great house and area to enjoy, we really hope you enjoy it too!
What makes this Villa unique
If you are looking for a very Spanish holiday a world away from the other 'Costas' with very little development, clean sandy beaches that run for miles, and beautiful sunsets over the Atlantic sea, traditional Spanish towns with so much history and charm, this area has it all. Villa Gabriella is ideally situated to visit all these places or sit back, relax and enjoy the private villa with its nice surroundings, garden and pool in the warm sunshine with a nice glass of fino!

Magnificent property in beautiful quiet location. Perfect😘👍
We only stayed at Villa Gabriella for three nights but what a magnificent property. The villa is in a quiet location just what we like but this makes having a car a must. A beautifully presented property with great pool and gardens perfect for those warm summer evenings. We can’t find fault with the villa and will definitely stay again when next in the area.
Lovely villa with great facilities
Our group of 10 enjoyed a wonderful week at Villa Gabriella, the pool is perfect and the outside areas very welcome as we generally stayed round the pool for most of our stay, therefore cannot really comment on too much of the surrounding area. The bbq area is great and the facilities inside are very impressive! The WiFi wasn’t great and we couldn’t really get or stay connected but there were a lot of us trying to use it! The only suggestion I would make is as the villa sleeps 10 that there are 10 sun beds available as we had to swap and change around a bit, but I would highly recommend staying here and both the owners and Eileen, our contact whilst we were there, were very helpful. Many many thanks! Jenny and Craig.
Thank you Jenny and Craig for you lovely review and your kind comments.
We are so pleased you enjoyed your holiday at Villa Gabriella.

Gorgeous villa with great outdoor space and lovely pool
Gorgeous villa, with everything you could think of. Great size property, lovely swimming pool with lots of outdoor space that suited both parties. Would highly recommend this property as it was great value for money. We were given lots of information about the villa and various places to visit. Definitely a need to hire a car due to its location. Even though there were fans in the bedrooms we wished the villa had air conditioning as it was a little uncomfortable to sleep on times. We had a great holiday in this lovely part of Spain.
Hi Joanna and Claire
Thank you for your review and we are really pleased you enjoyed Villa Gabriella and the beautiful Costa de la Luz area. I think the week you were there it was exceptional hot weather! We will certainly consider air conditioning installment in the near future.
Kind regards Jackie and Patrick
Great pool, very comfortable.
Generally a lovely property to stay in, with a great pool. We had a few issues with the pool filter/pump which ran continually at full speed for a couple of days which was quite noisy. The neighbours also sang karaoke on a couple of afternoons quite loudly which was funny to begin with then became irritating after an hour or so!
Thank you for your review
Glad you enjoyed your holiday and the Villa - apologies for the noise of the pool filter and the neighbours!

Super villa for a great family holiday!
We stayed 2 weeks at the Villa Gabriella in summer 2017. Very impressed with this property, it was a hit with kids and adults alike! Good location, very clean & modern, well appointed with a nice kitchen, bathrooms, WiFi service etc. The pool is lovely, a nice size for the whole family to cool off. We particularly liked the garden layout because there's a choice of several places to sit depending on the time of day, whether you want somewhere shady or sunny. The garden offers privacy and is very pleasant to relax in, lots of attractive flowers and trees around. Our kids are already looking forward to their next visit :-)
Thank you Stuart for your positive comments on the house, garden and pool, we are pleased you had a great holiday.

Villa Gabriella is situated overlooking Melia Santi Petri golf course, it is a nice quite location and yet only a few minutes away from la barosa beach which really is a fantastic beach, very beautiful, clean and natural, ideal for children, (don't forget your surfboard, the waves are great fun) The beach has a promenade too. Novo Santi Petri is nearby, a commercial complex with shops bars and restaurants, 5 star hotels, tennis, golf and horse riding. Chiclana town is a 10 minutes away which is a delightful hustle bustle Spanish town with a daily food market, bars, shops and bodegas. Cadiz is approx 15 minutes by car which is well worth a visit, especially the old quarter, full of history and culture. Tarifa 1 hour away by car heading towards Gibraltar, a great place for the serious wind/kite surfer and from here dolphin and whale watching trips are available. So if you are looking for a relaxing, very Spanish holiday away from the madding crowd, this is it! The perfect holiday!
