About Simone & Gary Prosser

Simone & Gary from Pontypridd, South Wales, UK.

Simone & Gary Prosser purchased this villa in 2012

Why Simone & Gary Prosser chose Aljezur

We were living in Spain at the time but it just did not feel right so one day we drove here and we both fell in love with the area.

What makes this villa unique

We came across this piece of land that would have the back of the house once built facing south, we have the sun all day long even in the winter.

Never again

  • 1 of 5

We arrived late at nigth, there was nobody to meet us, there was no babycot while we did ask for one, there basically was no information about anything.

The inside was clean but the outside was not at all, cigarette butts everywhere, broken umbrella, broken sunshade, dirty sunloungers. We complained about it after which they fixed the sunshade. As we were staying for 3 weeks we asked what we were supposed to do with towels and bedding. They told us that they would arrange cleaners which we thought was really great. But now they say we requested cleaning and they are withholding money from the refund! The house itself is ok, the kitchen is not as fully fitted as advertised, it does not have a dishwasher and it lacks clean pots and pans. There was no waterboiler but upon request they brought us one. The sofa is literally falling apart and the bathrooms had mold in the shower and sink. Even though they gave us a discount as it was the end of season, it was still not worth the money. Overall a bad experience.

Owner's Response: Without your criticism we could not improve and make a better experience for future guests. We have bought a new sofa, addressed the mold issue in the en suite bathroom, replaced the sun shade and repaired or replaced the other items in your comments. Before the start of the next summer season additional improvements and extras will be made. It is a shame that you will not return. Simone & Gary

Lovelly villa @ Vale da Telha / Aljezur

  • 5 of 5

Good 3 bedroom villa with a very nice swimming pool and outside place. Lacks a dish washing machine and a new living room sofa, but besides that, you should expect pleasant owners with a good facilities considering Vale da Telha place. The location is near wonderful beaches, food and everything that Portugal west side of Algarve has to offer. I definitely recommend this place

Discover unspoilt coastline.

  • 5 of 5

This is a quality property that provides excellent accommodation and comfort. The garden and pool add to its appeal. Its location and surroundings are ideal for the quiet, relaxing holiday, but it is close enough to major facilities and attractions. The nearby coastline is fantastic, with unspoilt beaches and very good fish restaurants.

Will definitely return.

Modernes, großzügiges Haus mit Pool

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren im Juli/August mit 4 Erwachsenen dort . Das Haus bietet ausreichend Platz und allen Komfort. Besonders gefallen hat uns der Eiscrusher für die allabendlichen Pooldrinks und der uneinsehbare Pool/Gartenbereich, so dass höchstmögliche Privatheit gewährleistet ist.

Die Ferienhausgegend ist sehr ruhig, mit dem Auto nur 10 Min. nach Monte Clerigo (nächster Strand). Kommunikation und Infos mit Hausbesitzer Gary sehr entspannt. Also, wir haben 2 sehr erholsame Wochen dort verbracht. Wichtige Info: zu der Jahreszeit sind abends

viele Mücken unterwegs, also an Mückenspray/Schutz denken.

Super Urlaub

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten vom 24.8.-7.9. zwei Wochen lang einen fantastischen Urlaub in der schönen Villa.

Das Haus ist mit allem ausgestattet, was man für einen erholsamen Selbstverpflegungsurlaub braucht. Das Highlight der Küche ist der große amerikanische Kühlschrank mit ice-crusher. Ein Mietwagen ist erforderlich, um die herrlichen Strände der Umgebung zu erreichen.

Einkaufen waren wir immer im intermarche in aljezur, dieser hat täglich geöffnet.

Wir haben uns sowohl im Haus, als auch am schönen Pool und auf den Terrassen sehr wohlgefühlt.

Die sehr netten Eigentümer durften wir auch persönlich kennenlernen, der gesamte Kontakt war überaus unkompliziert, freundlich und hilfsbereit.

Wir kommen wieder!

Nochmal danke an Simone und Gary für den tollen Urlaub!

A repetir para o ano

  • 4 of 5

Adorámos a moradia, muito bem decorada e equipada com tudo o que é necessário para uma estadia de férias, a piscina é agradável bem como a zona envolvente.

Está bem localizada, numa zona muito calma, perto de praias lindíssimas e não muito longe da histórica vila de Aljezur.
