About Gill Garside

Whilst I am a 'Yorkshire lass' I have lived in London for a long time where I now work as a life coach. I first visited the area around Vera long before the Valle del Este golf course was built. I fell in love with the wilderness of the desert campo and the beautiful mountains that change colour with the evening light. I have spent many hours on horseback discovering wild partridge, tortoises and wild boar! The scent of wild thyme and rosemary as the horses brush past the plants is always with me. And, I love the weather and the beaches, there are more sunny days in this area than anywhere else in Spain.

Gill Garside purchased this villa in 2006

Why Gill Garside chose Vera

Because it has marvellous views from its elevated position. It has lots of space and is great for entertaining, the garden is private and not overlooked. The private pool really is big enough to swim in and you don't need to wear a swimming costume if you so choose! You can walk to the Valle del Este Hotel and listen to the frogs' chorus at dusk whilst sipping a cool beer on the terrace. Several of our guests return time after time, what better compliment to our villa and the Valle del Este Resort.

What makes this villa unique

Large private pool

Shady terraces

Great position overlooking the golf course

Stylishly furnished to a very high standard

Wonderful Villa on a Lovely Golf Resort

  • 5 of 5

We have spent a month here in this lovely spacious villa. It’s been great to have all the comforts of home plus the winter sunshine, not to mention those views! There was plenty of bedding and spare towels - even beach towels which is practically unheard of. The kitchen was very well equipped too. Valle del Este Golf Resort is well placed for making excursions to the surrounding towns for sightseeing, restaurants/cafes but the resort facilities make staying put an equally attractive option. There’s a great Spanish restaurant, a very friendly British Sports Bar and the hotel restaurant on site. These are just a short walk away if you don’t want to cook or if you want to watch a sporting event on SKY or BT Sport. The hotel has a lovely pool that you can lounge around free of charge and also has a Spa and Gym that you can pay to use. The whole environment is very clean and feels safe. The villa has its own swimming pool which was maintained weekly whilst we were there. Unfortunately the weather wasn’t quite warm enough for us to take advantage of it. We had a couple of minor problems with the plumbing when we arrived but Ana, the agent, very quickly got things sorted. Gill, the owner, was excellent at communicating and was very helpful throughout. If you can’t already tell, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Albaida 2 and would jump at the chance to return.

Owner's Response: Winter sunshine seekers are discovering Valle del Este and everything it offers as a base for discovering this part of the Almeria province.There is wonderful light at this time to year which we never see in our UK winter! Our villa does offer all the comforts of home and it's great to see our guests enjoying their stays. We try to look after their every need and are always there for them.

We had a lovely time staying at Villa Albaida. After a long day sightseeing the Villa has all the facilities and equipment needed for a perfect holiday, it is a home from home, very comfortable. We would rent again.

Owner's Response: With miles of lovely beaches within a short drive there is everything you need for a family holiday based around our villa. For days at home there's plenty of room for sunbathing by the lovely pool - great for swimming and playing. Or for an afternoon snooze and taking in the marvellous views, guests can go up onto the quiet roof terrace. These are just some of the reasons why many of our guests come back to stay again.

A wonderful experience.

Owner's Response: It's such a pleasure to know that our guests feel the villa is their home. We want them to do that as soon as they step through the front door. We try to provide everything to make sure every stay is easy and relaxing. The pool is lovely - it's big enough for a real swim and very refreshing on a hot day or after a day away sightseeing. Many of our guests choose to return and it's always a pleasure to see familiar faces again.

A holiday to remember in a fabulous spacious villa with fabulous sunrise and sunset views

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned home from this wonderful villa and quickly wanted to share our review for future visitors. We arrived with a party of six, 5 adults and a tiny 3 month old, and were greeted by Anna, who updated us on everything we needed to know about the villa. A welcome pack was provided which was greatly appreciated. My son and I came to enjoy the golf and this villa is literally 2 minutes from the first tee and clubhouse and Karen's bar, which serves some excellent no nonsense food. The drive to Vera Playa beach and Consum supermarket (Excellent) is approx 15 minutes and scenic. It was great to have an audience when teeing off at the 8th as our fellow party members overlooked from the villa's top terrace. Pool is a proper swimming pool and a good temperature when the temperatures were constantly pushing 30 degrees for our full 17 night stay. Takes your breath when you get in but if you use the outside shower first you are well prepared. The villa is very secure and well lit in the evening and is fully alarmed. But Valle del Este resort is very safe and I doubt if the alarm has ever gone off in anger. A very special thank you Gill for a wonderful holiday and we will be coming back. Already looking at flights and availability for next year as we are planning to visit twice again during 2017. Best Regards Jeanie & Rae.

comfort, convenience and quiet!

  • 5 of 5

Very well equipped and spacious villa with every comfort you could want. There were packs of playing cards, games, DVD's, books, BBQ ... all making for a 'home from home' stay.We have stayed at Valle del Este over 30 times in the past 11 years and this villa is an excellent place to stay especially if travelling with friends/ family, where space is a necessity at times. The small welcome pack of milk, water, wine and biscuits was much appreciated. Anna explained everything we needed to know about the place. The villa overlooks the 8th tee and is in walking distance to the hotel and commercial centre. Although this centre has never been that successful (there was only one restaurant/ bar open during our stay), usually from April to October there is at least one other eatery that opens. Try eating at the Truck Stop just off the roundabout at the exit of VdE...great value! Golf is always a test of courage here, and it was good to see some improvements being made to the tees and is a wonderful course to play, but not for the faint hearted! Try Aguilon at San Juan de los Toreros...a 30 minute drive up the coast...another great course. We would definitely stay at this villa again...hopefully in warmer weather when we can use the inviting pool!

Owner's Response: We are very pleased you enjoyed your stay at our villa and played the lovely golf course - it is a challenging course. It always looks good and is well maintained. Other golfers have combined staying at our villa as part of a golf tour of the region too, every course is very different. We would agree that the Truck Stop is worth trying, the tapas are good. Thank you for your review and we hope to welcome you again.
