Beautiful peaceful villa
Just returned from our second stay at Villa Gourmet. This really is a beautiful villa, in a peaceful location and is very private and not overlooked. The villa has everything you could wish for. The maids keep the inside and outside beautifully clean and Howard ( the owner) couldn't do more for you. I can't recommend this villa highly enough. Howard also owns Casa Grande, which we have stayed in twice, it is only a ten minute drive away and is equally as beautiful. Thank you Howard, we hope to return one day.

1st visit - certainly not my last
Over two weeks 7 of us stayed in this fantastic Villa. Inside the Villa was a real home from home but given the wonderful weather we enjoyed for the entire time, we really spent all of our time enjoying the outside facilities. A fabulous pool, jacuzzi and lots of lovely little terraces to enjoy. The outside kitchen is a brilliant addition to outdoor living. My young nieces felt guilty not having their children with them to enjoy the space and childrens facilities - maybe next time ๐Ÿ˜‚. Howard (the owner) was on hand but never intrusive and the staff who cleaned the Villa frequently were brilliant. Itโ€™s a Highly recommended from my family.

Outstanding Villa with exceptional service.
I have stayed at Villa Gourmet 3 times over the last 5 years and the standard of presentation remains at the highest level. The villa is wonderfully maintained and has a huge range of amenities such as bicycles, pool toys, kids toys, DVDs, huge music library etc etc. The cooking facilities and equipment with two kitchens, BBQ and Pizza Oven are all top end. Howard is a fantastic host, knows the local area intimately and nothing is too much trouble. The website photos say it all and are a true and accurate representation of this luxury villa.

Top service, great villa!
We just got back from such a wonderful holiday - it was hard to tear ourselves away from the villa! Howard gives a top service and takes care of every detail you could think of. I have yet to experience such a service like his- he makes you feel so at home. The grounds of the villa are incredible - hope to come back soon!

Excellent
This was a brilliant Villa, everything you needed and Elena was so helpful. We chose to have the pool heated which was well worth it. With 2 small kids it was just lovely. The jacuzzi was perfect once the kids were in bed/ before they got up in the morning. Location- excellent. We have stayed on the Algarve 4 times now in various places and the location here was brilliant. Close to a few supermarkets, close to a few different beaches and close to lots of restaurants. By close I mean a short drive. If you want walking distance this might not be for you, perhaps I am wrong though but I donโ€™t think you could walk to all those places easily. We spent time in Carvoeiro, Alvor, Portimรฃo and ferragudo beach. We were able to visit all the local attractions, zoo marine, the actual zoo, close to slide and splash although we didnโ€™t go there. Security is important to us on holidays and the villa has excellent security with gates, alarms and shutters. Really good facilities also, a huge walk in fridge and lots of gadgets in the kitchen. Coffee machine etc all good. Hopefully this is helpful to anyone looking at this property.

Perfect family holiday Villa!!!!!! ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ
Absolutely fantastic Villa - just returned from a week's stay, genuinely could not recommend highly enough - Howard (the owner) went above and beyond from start to finish and nothing was ever too much trouble, from dropping us at the local supermarket on our first day, to delivering extra water and beer ..... even down to dropping off some ear plugs - when our daughter started with ear ache so she could still enjoy the pool. Helena was absolutely superb, so friendly and helpful ..... we actually came home with no washing, as she kindly washed and ironed everything!! The Villa was beautiful, so many different things to do - our children (aged 4, 6 & 7) were never bored and loved exploring ! The pool house was the hub for us and was perfect, from the amazing Pizza oven to the grill and even SKY on TV. My personal highlight was the bar, having the lovely Sagres on tap was brilliant ....... Cannot wait to return next summer!!!!!! Thanks Howard ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ

Everything you could possibly want in a vacation home
Spectacular four-bedroom villa in the Algarve with every amenity you could possibly imagine. Have you ever heard of a walk-in refrigerator in a home? I hadn't, until I walked in here. How about a separate "house" just for indoor grilling on a Viking grill, cooking pizza in your own pizza oven, and then sitting down at a table for 12? This place has got that too. Plus a hot tub, large heated pool and a kiddie pool as well. Fully stocked honor bar plus beer on tap. More towels than a Ritz Carlton. Spotlessly clean, thanks to the exacting standards of the helpful proprietor Howard and the wonderful housekeeper Elena. Beaches within a 25 minute walk or short bike ride. Albufeira 25 minutes away by car. Lagos the same. Caroviera is nearest "town" of consequence. Great place for families or friends.

Great Villa - Believe the Reviews
The reviews all speak for themselves - this is an awesome villa, managed by an excellent host Howard and looked after by the wonderful Helena. The outdoor kitchen really makes the place, from cooking fresh pizzas and garlic bread to the steaks on the BBQ - it is just excellent. Nothing was too much trouble for Howard, from arranging transfers, being at the villa in 10 minutes when there was the slightest of issues, to even bringing us some Garlic when we had forgotten to buy some! He also booked us the best table in the house at O Pescador in Benagil for my wives birthday. Don't hesitate, if you are looking at Villa Gourmet, and it is available for the dates you want, book it! You will not regret it. Thanks, Howard and Helena - we all had a great 2 weeks with you and hope to be back soon.

Excellent Highly Recommended
This is a great villa, Howard is professional and easy to deal with. The villa has something for everyone and the heated pool, jacuzzi and outside bbq room mean that it can cope with any weather. There is a lot of tech and occasionally something may not work exactly as it should ( or more likely you donโ€™t know how to use it ) but Howard is continually fixing maintaining and improving the property which is exactly why it is a great find. Iโ€™m particularly fussy about cushions on sun beds, these where immaculate, and that alone makes the villa special, Helena the cleaner is thorough and brilliant, she even puts the towels on the sun beds in the morning for you! We where a family ranging from 57 to 11 months and it had something for all of us. The best review I can give is to tell you we will be back next year, keep up the good work Howard and we will see you in 2019 ! Nick, Dayana and Family
