Guestbook comments from the manager

I stayed at the Villa Bitoque with my husband and three children (18,20 and 22) for a week. It ticked all the boxes! The house was immaculate, the pool was lovely (heated)and the location brilliant. Excellent fish restaurant at the end of the cul-de-sac, small but well stocked supermarket a short walk away and a larger supermarket driving distance. Beautiful beach also walking distance. I would say that this villa is probably not suitable for families with very young children as the pool is quite deep (1m to 2m). Fabulous place to stay and I would go again.

Villa Bitoque was well equipped, clean and well maintained.

  • 5 of 5

We had a brilliant holiday at this villa would definatelty go back. Villa was spacious with everything you could need. Pool was great all in a private garden not overlooked. Supermarkets, restaurants and beaches all a short walk away. Private taxi service was brilliant very punctual and friendly. Would recommend the fish restaurant at the end of the road, must book it though as was very busy.

Lovely Villa!

  • 4 of 5

The Villa was very well equipped and had everything we needed including a stair gate for our toddler which was great.

It was clean with a good level of maintenance, if not a little dark inside?

The outside area was well provided for with enough seating and loungers for us all.

We did request that the pool was heated and were glad as is was quite windy whilst we were there so it would have been too cool for our little one.

Location wise you would need a car although there are a couple of restaurants at the top of the road (Indian and Seafood) We did order Indian takeout one night and the food was lovely.

There are a few updates needed in the villa, randomly the pillows were quite uncomfortable/lumpy and 2 of the showers (shower heads) need replacing/upgrading as these weren't great pressure wise.

But otherwise a great stay for our family and would definitely recommend!

The ladies in the office were also super helpful as we had late return flights so needed accommodation for the last day, which they provided for what we thought was a reasonable fee.

Very impressive villa in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed with this villa - it actually was exactly like the photos! Very clean and comfortable and in a great location close to several beaches (10 mins walk), 2 restaurants at the end of the Street; a seafood restaurant that we unfortunately didn't try and Mr Singh's Indian restaurant & takeaway which was excellent (he even gave us a lift to another restaurant when we couldn't get a taxi).

The pool and garden area at the back of the villa was lovely, with a BBQ and covered dining area, plus the added bonus of table tennis for the more energetic holiday makers.

It's only 10 mins drive from Albuferia and you can also get a 'hop on, hop off' bus down near the centre of Gale. There is also an excellent supermarket here: Apolonia 5 mins away (which is like M&S but cheaper)!

The beds were a little uncomfortably for our liking but this did not deter from us having a fabulous time here.

We would highly recommend this villa!

Great family villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Villa Bitoque. The villa is very quiet, spacious and very clean. We managed do a fair amount of cooking as the kitchen was fairly well equipped and we fired up the BBQ a few times. We had some lovely meals beside the pool. The fridge is big enough to chill lots of water, beers and wine as well as a fair amount of food.. all good.

Our group consisted of three couples and a one year old. The couple with the baby took the two bedrooms upstairs, which worked out really well as they were able to share the bathroom. The others two couples had a room each with ensuites downstairs which meant one couple had to push the single beds together.

We were all disappointed with the bedding and felt it was a little tired and the towels of poor quality. The mattresses were quite hard too and the pillows were flat. The bed cover was a blanket. We all felt that the bedrooms needed some TLC (tender loving care) and new beds.

We spent most of our time in the villa around the pool, which was very clean a lovely to swim in. We tried out jet skiing nearby and a few restaurants. The beaches are stunning. We found the car very useful for getting around and for shopping.

Overall we would recommend this villa and would consider returning in the future.

Car: recommended

This excellent villa enjoys complete privacy, located in a quiet and peaceful cul-de-sac,off the road to the beautiful Blue Flag beaches of Galé and Sao Lourenco just 900m, so easy walking distance. There are other top class Blue flag beaches within just a few minutes drive, Castelo, Evaristo - famous for its 5* beach restaurant, Coelho and Sao Rafael recently voted as the 4th best beach in europe !

For a very special treat one of the finest 2 star Michelan restaurants in Portugal, ' Vila Joya' , s just 900m.

The villa is fully conditioned and has a lovely spacious garden and poolside terraces with a brick BBQ, ideal for al-fresco dining.

It is only a short stroll to restaurants, with the best local fish restaurant being just at the end of the road, and 750m to an excellent supermarket, voted in 2011 as the best in the algarve.

The property is totally private and enclosed by walls and gate. There is a refreshing mosaic tiled swimming pool (9 m x 4 m, with depths from 1m to 2m), which can be heated if required. The pool water is cleaned biologically which makes it very pleasant to swim in.

Although car hire is not absolutely necessary it is recommended.

There are only seven Villas in this quiet Cul-de-sac (see also Villa Jorge, Villa Luís, Villa Barros and Villa Clara).

Excellent choice as a base for exploring all what this very special part of the Algarve has to offer.

Albufeira is 6kms , around a 10 minute drive, is famous for its interesting old town and numerous music bars and Marina.

Guia is 4kms, and is famous for being the home of Chicken piri piri, with numerous (25+) good value restaurants.

Zoomarine is only a 10 minute drive, it features marine life , a fantastic dolphin show, and where you can swim with the dolphins, amusement rides and a large swimming pool. - all makes for a great family day out.

There are 2 water parks , one a 15 minute drive and the other 30 minutes.

Water sports are available on Gale beach including jet skies.
