Guestbook comments from the manager

We have been travelling to the Algarve since the nineties and this has been the best villa (& agents) we have stayed at/with. The villa is ideally located at the end of a private drive on a raised elevation - giving enviable privacy, peace, outlooks and serenity - but is just a few minutes drive from gorgeous beaches and the most fabulous high quality supermarket (the amazing Apolonia).

We loved the Praia de Gale as our favourite beach - you can drive (and park all day for free) right up to the beach which is the most divine soft and clean unspoilt sand stretch of miles upon miles - my wife and I walked every morning barefoot on the beach at the waves-edge for a good couple of hours unhindered and could have gone further should we have wanted.

I braved a hearty morning sea swim after most mornings and with only a few other people on these beaches felt we were in a paradise found (reminiscent almost of the private resorts we have stayed in at Grenada, Tobago and other Caribbean locations).

The beach cafes were absolutely fantastic - both food, drinks, value and service. A real relaxed high quality - choose your fish for two and have it served as fillets from the whole baked fish at the table. Combined with the wonderful facilities (including the purpose built BBQ and outdoor oven/chiminea) at our villa and the amazing exceptional high quality (and good value) fresh fruit, veg, bread, deli, meats and to-die-for fish at the Apolonia (not forgetting their commendable wines collection) - I cannot remember the last time we ate so well for the entire duration of a holiday.

I highly commend Gale as a perfect holiday location for the refined and discerning travellers who seek simple sophistication and the healthy salubrious decorum of the perfect holiday we all dream of - especially if you can get the 'island-in the-sky' that is villa Beatriz - we have never been so sad to leave any holiday location.

The owner was just like your favourite uncle and he gave us all the peace we needed (and wanted) - the villa is immaculate, tastefully furnished and well equipped with great facilities - comfy beds, very powerful showers and copious hot water (even poolside!), and even had UK TV (HD - BBC/ITV/Ch4).

The pool is a really good size and adequate for short length swims with varied depths and a desirable deep end .The gardens are immaculate with phenomenal well established trees and plants and with a plethora of good quality lounging and seating throughout and several

very quiet well appointed villa

  • 4 of 5

We all enjoyed our stay and villa was kept very clean and tidy by rosa Marie and Eduardo.few small points expected toilet rolls and bin bags(on the days rosa didn't come)to be supplied as they were in other villas we have stayed.The grass could have been cut and clothes pegs need replacing. Last point some internal doors wouldn't shut especially bedroom 2

Lovely villa in a wonderful location!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd stay at Villa Beatrix. My wife, two 13 year old sons and I yet again had a wonderful stay. The villa is very well appointed, with all key home comforts and lots of activities to keep both 13 years olds very busy. The pool is a very nice size, and the basketball hoop, table tennis table and ample grounds all facilitated lots of sporting fun throughout the day. Eduardo keeps the pool spotlessly clean, and is so helpful if there are any maintenance issues. Rosa visits most days, and keeps the Villa very clean and tidy. The team at Principal provide great help and support with excursions, car rental and other points. We would definitely stay again at this lovely villa, and we recommend the property very highly.

Fantastic, beautiful villa in a great location

  • 5 of 5

I would recommend staying at Villa Beatriz. Villa facilities are exceptional, large open spaces around the Villa surrounded by large mature trees for shade. Very private.Superb pool/pool shower and sunbathing. Algarve Villa Holidays were really helpful during booking process organising taxi transfer and bicycle rental. Spar supermarket 5 mins on bike, various quality restaurants similar distance from Villa. Great beaches to go and explore. All in all a fantastic location and property for a holiday.

secluded, peaceful and perfect

  • 5 of 5

A great villa in the hills with excellent facilities. An amazing pool and plenty of outdoor space together with comfortable beds and a well equiped kitchen make this an ideal base for exploring the area. There is private parking for at least three vehicles and a gate to keep you safe at night. We had a week here and would happily return.

Very nice villa

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely holiday in the well maintained and well equipped villa. It is spacious and has all the facilities that you could want for a great holiday. It was clean and well maintained.

A couple of minor negatives, the villa is secluded and because of that it is difficult to find, especially if it is dark when you arrive, the air con/heater in the lounge wasnt working and as it was February, the room was very cold. We reported it to the caretaker and he brought an oil filled radiator immediately, but it wasnt adequate for such a big room. The office told us that the technician reported that it needed a spare part and couldnt be fixed during our stay.

So we went out and bought wood and lit the fire, which warmed the room. It did not spoil our holiday at all, but was an inconvenience.

A car is a necessity really, there are no bars or restaurants within easy walking distance, but the restaurants nearby were excellent quality and a decent price

We would definitely recommend the villa, and would return again

Owner's Response: Dear clients, We are very pleased that you did enjoyed your stay at Villa Beatriz, it was very unfortunate that the Air conditioning broke but luckly there was a fire place for you to use. The sunshine was present and that warmed the days!! We hope that you return one of these days to Portugal and hope to see you again.

clean and well presented

  • 3 of 5

the instructions for finding the villa were difficult to follow at night ,and the instructions for the villa keys to me read that if the office is closed ,which we assumed it would be at that time of night therefore no point going to the office ,the keys would be in the key safe by the front door which we assumed would be the front door of the villa.also the maid service every day was unnecessary and a little intrusive,those points aside we enjoyed our stay at the villa for the peace and quiet .

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We are sorry that you had problems in finding the villa, the instructions are precise and does inform that If the office is closed, the key will be in the key safe by the front door of the office. It is true that in the dark when you do not know the area it is more difficult. Regarding the maid if you did not wanted maid everyday you should have ask and we would have cancel her. We are so sorry as these points should not spoil client's holidays. The villa is in a nice and quiet area wish does make it so Popular. This winter a new floor will be made to improve the property, if you wanted to come to this villa or another will be happy to offer you a discount.
