“Villa Gourmet - an excellent choice”
Reviewed 16 April 2018 for a stay in March 2018

The Villa is in a perfect location just minutes away from the Marinha beach and other attractions alongside the beautiful coast of Algarve. The Villa is in a very good condition. Everything from furniture, interiors and equipment is of a very high quality. The owner of the Villa is just minutes away and he was very helpful if we needed any assistance. Also the housekeeper that came every weekday was so nice and helpful and she is keeping the Villa in a spotless condition.
The Villa has an amazing pool house with all you can ask for, even a Pizza oven. It has so many different seating areas with views of the landscape and the beautiful garden. There are so many things to do in and around the Villa, pool table, table tennis, football, amazing heated covered pool, jacuzzi and a small golf course in the garden. And we all loved the fridge room.
We booked the Villa directly with Algarvecoast Villas and the owner. The whole process from contract signing, payment, Pre stay information and return of deposit was excellent and professionally handled by AlgarveCoast Villas.
We can highly recommend the place and the Villa.
We had an amazing stay and we can't wait to go back.

ABSOLUTELY THE BEST VILLA FOR A LUXURIOUS RELAXING HOLIDAY

Third time at Howard's villa and again we spent most of the holiday around the stunning pool area and outdoor kitchen. We made several trips to the local beach on the bikes supplied by the villa and also found a couple of secret coves... shhhhhh keep them secret.

Howard was the best host and arranged everything we asked for and Elena is a dream and kept the villa immaculate.

The villa truly has every luxury you could want on holiday and is in our favourite area which has some of the best fine dining restaurants in the Algarve and is a must if you appreciate small and local restaurants away from the bustling resorts.

We will be back again and again

Villa Gourmet is superb, we were a family party of 8 (6 adults, 2 children) ages ranging from 3 to 72 and we all had a brilliant time. We have stayed in a number of villas in the algarve but this is the best so far. The facilities are second to none, we haven't had a large pool as big and the small children's pool is a perfect size. There are inflatables, pool table, table football, bicycles and helmets, jigsaw's playstation, the list is endless. The children loved the trampoline, play area and the little house. The adults loved the outdoor kitchen (including pizza oven), jacuzzi, music system with outside speakers and honesty bar. The area is perfect, so quiet and peaceful but also close enough to a number of supermarkets and beaches. We have never previously returned to the same villa but we are returning in 2018 because we don't think we can get anywhere better.

Staying at this stunning villa was the highlight of our Portugal adventure. Pool area was amazing including the outdoor kitchen which had a pizza oven which we enjoyed using. Beautifully landscaped grounds, scenic views, fully equipped kitchens and walking distance to beaches. Our host Howard was very welcoming and made us feel at home,thank you! I hope to return and highly recommend this villa. We didn't want to leave!

Where do I start from start to finish the villa was amazing really couldn't ask for more there's something to do for everyone and the owner Howard is brilliant at what he does and what he's done with the villa it's basically got everything you could ever imagine and more the BBQ outside kitchen is absolutely wonderful with its restaurant pizza oven and a big Viking grill the sound system is amazing Bose sound with Sanos system is perfect take your own playlists and he's already got 70k songs on his own Libary we all gave the villa a 5 star we was a party of 4 adults and 3 children pizza dough available on request Howard Evan borrowed me his iPhone charger as I forgot mine nothing was too much trouble plus he only lives about 10 minute drive away which is really handy the heated pool is wonderful it's so big for a private villa games room and to top it off it's got a bar what more could you ask for jacuzzi which is amazing too really hot with adjustable temperature so much to do for the kids they absolutely loved every minute of the holiday will obviously recommend going try and come back next year.

““Just as Amazing & Luxurious as last time we visited””
Reviewed 23 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Thanks Howard again for our amazing stay at your Villa Gourmet. This is the 2nd time we have stayed here and we have also visited Howard's other equally amazing villas. The quality of the villas on your website is second to none.
Villa Gourmet has everything you need for a perfect 5* holiday and more. Luxury villa interior , beautiful and immaculately clean pool area and gardens, well equipped for children and adults alike. The outdoor kitchen area is one of our favourite places in the Algarve, you really do not need to leave the villa other than to get supplies.
The 10 minute bike ride down to the small picturesque beach ( bikes supplied at the villa) was one of the highlights of our stay ( allow a bit longer for the uphill ride back though!) If you are looking for a luxury family villa this is the one. We will be back next year Howard
