Guestbook comments from the manager

Another fabulous week at Villa Barros. The Villa has a brand new and extended kitchen this year plus the downstairs bathrooms have recently been upgraded - this enhances the already high standard of accommodation and facilities at the villa. Villa Barros is a 4 bedroom (3 en-suites plus a family bathroom)individually designed two storey private and reasonably priced villa located at the end of a Close of some 7 or so detached villas. The air-conditioned and spacious Villa is not over-looked and is both secure and quiet; the villa has a good sized clean pool. It is well equipped and kept spotlessly clean. The master bedroom occupies the whole of the first floor, has front and rear balconies and has a large well fitted en-suite with large walk-in shower. The Villa is within easy walking distance of good quality restaurants (try Sao Domingos for fine dining)and coffee shops (Docaria Almeixar is a must !). The excellent beach at Gale is a 15 minute walk or 5 minutes by car (we particularly enjoy an evening stroll on the beach followed by a meal and sun-downer at the Gale Beach Restaurant). There is an Apolonia supermarket (bit pricey but good quality) 5 mins by car or a substantial Continente about 10 mins near to Guia. Albufeira is about a 15 min drive and is also served by local buses. The Villa is managed locally by the Principal Office; staff as always very helpful and efficient. We have been to this Villa a number of times and keep coming back as it provides a high standard of private accommodation at an affordable price in an excellent location.

Excellent holiday thanks to superb villa

  • 5 of 5

Villa Barros exceeded our expectations. The provisions left for us on arrival was a lovely touch and very welcome, very appreciative. Six adults and two grandchildren 2 and 3 but we all had our own space if we wanted.

Upstairs was allocated to our newly engaged son and fiance which was fantastic as they had their own space to retreat to. The other adult bedrooms had own patio area to sit and relax/read if needed. The Villa was spotless and cleaned twice in our week and also towels changed. The pool was also cleaned regularly. We loved the privacy of the Villa not overlooked at all and pretty garden with heated pool a definite must and used all through holiday. Little ones confidence and swimming skills improved throughout the week. The lemon tree supplied us with slices of lemon in our drinks.

Beach a little further than we thought took us about 25 minutes to walk (we are mid-60's). There was a supermarket about 10/15 minutes away and level walk, on our first shop we did get a taxi back, don't forget to get the turkey and lamb kebabs for BBQ they were delicious.

The restaurant on the beach Pedras Amarelas was superb, food and service was second to none not to mention the fantastic view. Price quite high but worth it at least once. The restaurant at the top of the road Do Ti-manel was also very good and just a couple of minutes walk away, very popular, lots of people were queuing while we were eating and were still there at 9.00 p.m.so must book.

I could go on with all the positives but have to stop sometime!!!

Our first experience of Portugal and Villa Barros together with the very friendly Portuguese people made it a holiday not to be forgotten. Many thanks to all, we will be back.

Summer At Last!

  • 5 of 5

After escaping the horrible British summer, rain, rain and more rain, we made it to the beautiful Villa Barros. The villa was everything we expected and more. Spacious, especially if you bag the top bedroom with two balconies, but every room has a terrace and some nice nooks and crannies to escape with a good book. The wendy house was a hit with my 2 year old and he spent most of the day in there, handy when the sun was so hot. The indian restaurant at the top of the road is first class, non greasy and loads of choice! Beautiful beaches within 15 minute walk with beach bars and lovely soft sand! What more could you ask for.

Many Thanks for an excellent holiday!

Super, spacious, private well proportioned villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely relaxing week. The villa has very good sized living space and excellent bathrooms and bedrooms.

The outside space is very pretty with of course the lovely pool and a nice grass area that my kids could play on too.

We had the pool heated this year which I would highly recommend.

Everything was kept very clean and tidy and we would definitely come back.

The area is very peaceful and the beaches are beautiful.

Can't wait to return.

Perfect for a family of various ages! Well equipped and ideally located!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely perfect for our family! Very well described by owners direct. The property was spotless and everything was in good working order although we never found out how to switch the pool lights on. The maids visited regularly to replace towels etc. I would have no hesitation in recommending this property to anyone. There were plenty of decent bars and restaurants a short taxi drive away and a few within walking distance. The local beaches were very quiet and beautiful. All in all a perfect holiday.

Just What the Doctor Ordered.

  • 4 of 5

Perfect Location for a quite break, Myself and my wife booked at short notice early in the season and although the Villa has four bedrooms the layout didn't make us feel lost with three of the bedrooms to one side, and the main bedroom upstairs with having two a balconies one north and the other south is perfect for those who love the sun. A very well equipped kitchen which didn't get an awful lot of use from us but has everything, but that said maybe some condiments will aid the weary traveller like salt,pepper and sugar, although the sliced pan, ham and cheese with the bottle of beer did make a welcome site in the fridge which is one of two in the kitchen, The pool area is tight enough if kids are running around, we have four so I have experience of this,I love the BBQ area and the fact it is shaded in the evening, nothing worse that standing at a hot BBQ getting burnt on both sides. the little outdoor bed at the side was a super shaded chill out area and great for a glass or two of rose before dinner.The Lemon tree was hanging with fruit and made a great marinate for my lemon chicken cooked on the BBQ.With the property being equal distance from the beach or cafe's and shops it made for a perfect location, Gale is a pretty quite small town so we had no need for a car to get to either beach or shops, although we did take a taxi from the supermarket with our first trip to the shops. I would have no problems with staying here again and only for the fact it's booked out for the summer I would have booked again for the whole family. Now I have to look for another property and will struggle to find one to match this.

Damian & Rita.

Beautiful property with lovely views and great pool

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Villa Barros was really great, the villa was beautiful with a great pool and lovely views. We did travel out of season so not much was open in the area but enough for what we needed. There is a couple of lovely restaurants in walking distance and the rest were a short drive away. The villa was immaculately clean and well presented and the pool nice and warm.

We would definitely recommend the villa to anyone.
