Peaceful and relaxing holiday.
I love Casa Monteiro and have stayed there regularly for many years. The inviting blue pool set in a spacious garden bordered by hibiscus and myrtle hedges with lemon trees and flower beds is a delightful welcome on arrival at the villa. An abundance of poolside beds give an immediate invitation to relax and enjoy every moment. Alfresco dining is well catered for in a sheltered table area with seating. The villa is large and well appointed with everything required for a relaxing holiday in peaceful surroundings. Cocktails in the nearby hotel create a delightful interlude at the end of a sundrenched day beside the pool or beach. A variety of beautiful beaches to explore grace the coastline a short distance away. A lovely holiday destination!

A relaxing place in the sun
We’ve been visiting Casa Monteiro as a group of friends for many years and it’s always a joy to return. The homely villa in a quiet residential street is always spotlessly clean and lovingly maintained; it’s well equipped both inside and out for a relaxing holiday in the su; the pool is set in a beautiful garden all set up for al fresco dining with barbecue, gazebo and citrus trees groaning with lemons for your salads and G&Ts. Several excellent beaches are within easy walking distance, each with their own character and bar/restaurant. A car is an advantage if you want to explore further afield, however with a quality supermarket close by, a choice of local restaurants and the facilities at the W hotel across the road, plus a good local bus service, it’s perfectly possible to enjoy a relaxing car free holiday… looking forward to many happy returns!

The perfect holiday rental.
Lovely well equipped holiday home, set in a beautiful garden with large swimming pool, surrounded by lemon and acacia trees, hibiscus and bougainvillea. Five spacious bedrooms, 4 with full bathrooms, 1 with shower. First floor bedrooms have balconies with views of the garden and beyond. The house is within easy walking distance of several small and beautiful quiet sandy coves as well as the famous Praia Gale and Praia Salgados beaches which are white sand beaches backed by sand dunes. Lagoa dos Salgados nature reserve is one of the most important wetlands in the Algarve and within walking distance of the villa. The location is perfect for beach holidays, walking, bird watching, fine dining, beach bars. It’s an easy drive to Silves, to the Ria Formosa etc. or you can just stay near the pool and relax! I think you can tell I love this rental. I’ve been many times over the last 25 years and love it more each time.

We had a wonderful time!
The villa is lovely and is in a fabulous location in Gale! We could walk to all the beaches and restaurants, which is wonderful for 4 senior Grannies!! We didn’t need a car as Uber cabs were easily booked and reliable! Cocktails in the luxury hotel opposite was a real treat!

Great villa in a great location
We were a family group of 10 with an age range of 2 to 77. The villa was spotlessly clean with a huge amount of space, all bedrooms with an en suite. The pool is bigger than the photos suggest and the garden has some nice shade if the weather gets to hot. We decided not to hire cars as we planned to spend time most of our time locally. The nearby restaurants were all good quality, very reasonably priced and within a 5-10 minute walk. A special mention to Quinta de Gale (5 mins walk). We had a very good meal there and, after an exhausting day at Aqualand, we took advantage of their excellent takeaway pizzas. Google maps show 2 supermarkets nearby. I would recommend Apolonia rather than Spar. It’s very well stocked and a much easier walk (about 20 mins). About 5 mins further is the fantastic Gale beach with 3 bar/restaurants, plenty of sun beds and lots of water sports. Overall, we all had a really enjoyable time at the villa and I found it great value for money.

Delightful property with n excellent maid
We have been staying at this property for over 10 years now. The rooms are spacious and the location is great with lots of restaurants and bars nearby. Maria cleans the villa to a very high standard and she is also extremely friendly and helpful. We have made friends with her over the years and this is part of the reason we all come back. The villa sleeps 11 people but even if there are less it us good value. Looking forward to going back again one day.

Fabulous holiday
We have just returned from a wonderful holiday in Gale. This was our fourth, each time we have enjoyed our holiday. This time was made extra special by the team behind this villa! On searching for a villa to accommodate our party of 12, we came across Casa Monteiro. It had all the criteria to meet our needs and was much better value than the previous villas we had stayed in. I contacted them and was greeted with an email by return from Surah. From the start, the process of booking was friendly and efficient. I was a little worried at first as there had been so many scare stories of scams in the press about booking direct with the owners. I need not have worried. We were due to arrive at the villa about 12 noon. Access to the villa was available from 2pm to allow for cleaning from previous guests. However we were warmly greeted by Maria the housekeeper and our luggage was safely stored in the villa whilst we went to get some lunch. When we returned the villa was pristine! During the holiday Maria kept the villa beautifully clean with visits every other day, thoroughly cleaning & changing towels etc. The pool area was great, very spacious and got the sun from sunrise to sunset. With lots of sunloungers & mattresses! Dining was lovely under the gazebo All the bedrooms were comfortable, each with its own bathroom. The villa is very well situated with the beaches just a stones throw away. There are plenty of restaurants serving delicious Portuguese food and a couple of bars within easy walking distance If you are looking for a relaxing, comfortable holiday. This is the villa for you.

A wonderful villa which made our family holiday in Portugal one to remember
We were delighted to see how spacious and clean the villa was. All bedrooms were en-suite and they were clean and comfortable. Two living rooms meant that the adults had their own space to sit quietly or chat whilst the children watched the tv. Sky sports was a huge bonus as our family love to watch all kinds of sport. The kitchen was a good size, although we did feel that it was poorly equipped with cooking utentils. The villa was cleaned thoroughly by maria and she was very friendly and helpful. She even did some shopping for us prior to our stay - thank you! The outdoor area was spacious and the pool was beautiful and clean. Although it was not heated, the august sun made it a welcoming break from the scorching termperatures. The bbq was excellent and we had many good meals during our stay. Although in a quiet area, the villa was situated within walking distance of a number of beautiful beaches and small coves. We had a wonderful meal at praia lourenco and enjoyed the intimate beach area after sunset. Scooby's provided free wifi for the teenagers in the family and other amenities such as restaurants and supermarkets were close by. The taxi rank was just down the road, however scoobys provided an excellent service for our large group. We had the most wonderful holiday and would not hesitate to recommend the villa to our friends.

Amazing place to stay
Myself and my family stayed here in July last year. The villa itself is beautiful and accommodated all 11 of us comfortably. The pool is bigger than it looks on the picture and is always keep clean by the pool man. The whole villa is cleaned on a regular basis so you always have clean bedding and towels. although the location of the villa is a little out the way of night life there are some lovely local bars and restuarants only a short distance away. Taxis dont cost much either. I would highly recommend that you head for the large shopping centre just outside Gale as the local supermarkets can be very expensive. All in all I would definately recommend this villa to anyone especially families.
