Excellent villa...
Stayed as two families of three, so 4 adults, 1 teenager and an 8yr old. Suited our needs perfectly. Tracey was helpful all along the booking process and even sorted us out with a bigger welcome pack as we were arriving late. Pool was great rooms big and a/c all good. Located about a 5 min walk down to Praia de Manuel Lourenco, lovely little beach and even better restaurant (which we went to twice), Restauarante Lourenco. We also walked to some other great restaurants within about a 15/20 mins walk; Restaurante A Grelha do Ti Manel, Restaurante "São Domingos",and Olive Bistro & Gastro Bar. We had hire cars so did a couple of trips to Albufeira marina... not bad, but a bit touristy. Do not try "6 Paragrafo" - appalling place and service. Also went to Vilamoura marina miles nicer... Main beach near villa also good for water sports and sand castle building, etc. Does get busy though, but plenty of space. Make the effort to find Praia da Rocha Rota, lovely cove with sea arch... All in all a great villa and location.

Amazing villa, location and hospitality
Super process through booking, details, information and welcome that made the whole experience so easy, Tracey is a star. The villa itself is laid our perfectly, had a very homely feel and was perfect for the 6 of us with 1 double and 2 twin rooms. Outside the pool was excellent and cleaned during the week and there was enough areas to have sunshine and shade to suit. Location wise, took us 6 minutes to walk to the beach, nice beach bar there as well but everywhere else was so close, either walking or a short drive to many more beaches, watersports, bars, restaurants etc. We also booked taxi to Albufeira a couple of nights which was 10 Euro for a 10 minute drive so had that on our doorstep if needed. Cracking holiday made so much by having a great place to stay !

Amazing stay
We have just returned from staying at tnis beautiful villa. It was incredibly comfortable and we had a lovely warm welcome along with a few essentials to keep us going. Everything was functional and had everything we could possibly need. Our host was flexible with the check in and out times which was a huge help considering the time of our flights. We will definitely be coming back!

Sehr schöner Aufenthalt!
Die Villa Pardal hat uns sehr gut gefallen! Tracey ist super nett und hat uns viele Tipos gegeben. Das Haus ist gut ausgestattet und der Pool ist sehr schön. Strand mit Liegen und Sonnenschirmen und der Supermarkt sind zu Fuß gut zu erreichen. Tracey hat uns beim Mietwagen geholfen, es hat alles super gut geklappt!! Vielen Dank für alles!

Perfect for a family break
Just arrived back from a family break with our grandson. We had a lovely time and he didn’t want to come home. The villa was spacious and the kitchen had everything you needed for a self catering holiday. A Well stocked supermarket is only a 10 minute walk away but if you want to eat out there are enough places locally to choose from. There was a shaded area with a large table which was ideal to eat lunch and the upstairs terrace brilliant for pre evening snacks and aperitifs. The pool was a hit with our grandson and so glad we paid the extra for it to be heated, I dread to think what it would have been like otherwise. The beds were very comfortable and the shutters kept the rooms lovely and cool aiding a good nights sleep. Tracey was extremely helpful especially when we were let down by our transfer company on departure, arranging an alternative for us to get to the airport just on time, thank you Tracey it was much appreciated. All in all we had a very pleasant stay at Villa Pardal and would happily stay there again.

lovely villa in perfect setting
We had booked a villa holiday over a year ago and the company cancelled on us the week before. We looked through vast sites and finally set our eyes upon Villa Pardal. Communication with Tracey was brilliant, she answered all queries and also advised us of local amenities and beaches etc. Tracey arranged transfers for us which was very helpful, the villa is approx 40 mins from faro airport. Tracey also asked if we would like some shopping getting to get us by the first night as we arrived late and had 5 kids to feed. This was a god send. The villa was very clean and modern, it also felt very safe with the alarm and shutters to the windows. The villa was spacious and the upstairs balcony was a really nice touch to the double bedroom. The weather wasn't great when we stayed here however we didn't let it ruin our break, there was a barbeque outside and sheltered seating area in which we sat on a night whether it rained or not. There was a supermarket within ten minute walk and also a few bars and restaurants. This wasn't a really lively place but had enough to keep us occupied. Perfect for families and those wanting a nice quiet holiday. To get to the busier places it was a ten minute taxi ride. The beach was also a 5/10 minute walk and really nice and clean, there were also a few café/restaurants on the beach. We went to the zoo marine in day and this was really nice and the kids enjoyed it. The maid came midweek to change our towels and offered to clean the villa too. The pool was a perfect size for out party of 7, the kids enjoyed it and there were sunbeds to lounge round the pool. There is also a washer in the garage which came in useful. All in all this villa was lovely and would definitely visit again.

Another fantastic stay at Villa Pardal
This is our second visit to Villa Pardal in 2 years. The location is perfect - set in a quiet cul de sac but near enough to walk to the excellent restaurants and beaches. Lorenco beach and restaurant being only 5 to 10 minutes walk from the Villa. The villa itself is immaculate and has a lovely homely feel. The rooms are big and were more than ample for the four of us (especially 2 lads wanting their own space and a healthy wifi signal !!). The pool was a good size and the outside areas were well kept by the friendly gardener who we shared a beer with (nice chap). Tracey was once again really helpful and brought us an unexpected welcome pack of essentials we needed (beer, wine, water etc). The outside covered sitting area was brilliant for dining in and the upstairs terrace lovely for sitting with a beer and watching to sunset. We spent more time at the villa than we would normally do on holiday due it being so nice. We cannot fault anything about Villa Pardal and indeed Gale and will almost certainly be back. BIG thumbs up from us.

Lovely villa and wonderful holiday
We really loved our two week stay at Vila Pardal. It was an immaculate and very comfortable villa, with plenty of room for the five of us. Rooms are lovely and spacious and is set in a beautiful quiet area. Pool was a good size and the outside areas were well kept and great. Tracey was really helpful and she went out of her way to get things sorted for us such as taxis, airport transfers, and even delivered some heavy/bulky grocery supplies like water, charcoal for BBQ, beer. We didn't need to hire a car and just relied on taxis and our legs! We completely relaxed and enjoyed the peaceful environment whilst not being too far away from the busy albufeira. It has some wonderful areas to run or walk and you can walk right from the small beach close to the villa, all the way along the coastline to Salgados beach and beyond which is beautiful. Highly recommended for a wonderful holiday.

For the second year a perfect stay.
The villa is in a lovely location, the accommodation is perfect set in its own spacious plot with a terrific pool. In Gale' you are 5 minutes walking distance from the nearest beach, 10 mins from shops, restaurants and bars, all good quality. Tracey (manager) has been brilliant from initial booking through to the stay at Villa Pardal, this is our second stay here and it just gets better.
