Villa overview - owner's description

A beautiful villa set in a quiet rural location with stunning sea views. Originally a Portuguese farmhouse it has been extensively modernised to provide excellent accommodation. The villa is south facing and the garden captures the best of the sunshine whilst offering maximum privacy. From the villa you can look out across the pool with a backdrop of a superb sea view.

This idyllic accommodation provides all you need for long lazy peaceful days in the sun, whatever the season.

The surrounding area is full of natural beauty throughout the year and is ideal for anyone wishing to escape the hustle and bustle of every day life. With a beach and plenty of restaurants (within) just 15 minutes walk, you will not have far to travel.

A car is recommended to enjoy the magic of the area with five or six beautiful quiet beaches and coves within a few minutes drive.

For those wishing for some night life the town of Carvoeiro is 10 minutes drive away and has some lively bars, restaurants and plenty of boutiques and shops.

If you can raise yourself from this idyllic retreat then there are numerous golf courses within 30 minutes of the property and for the family the two great water parks on the Algarve within 20 minutes drive.

The property is one villa that has been sub divided into two separate villas, each sleeping four with their own kitchen and bathroom, making it an excellent choice for two families or friends sharing. The two villas are linked via an internal interconnecting door. The pool and outside area are secluded and not overlooked by other properties. The villa is set in its own grounds and off the beaten track.

The property has recently had two newly refurbished bathroom, kitchens and living rooms.

The property does have wi-fi if for those that need to keep in touch.

The whole property consists of two master bedrooms, two twin bedrooms, two bathrooms, two lounges each with access to the pool and garden and two kitchen/dinning rooms.

Each kitchen is fully equipped with fridge/freezer, hob, oven, microwave, washing machine and a wide range of utensils.

A BBQ is also provided together with tables and chairs for outside dining. Loungers and parasols are provided for use in the garden and pool area.

Steps at the side of the property lead to a large roof terrace, perfect for peace and quiet while watching the sunset or enjoying the nightime sky.

Towels and bed linen is provided. Please provide own beach towels.

The garden area is well maintained and the pool is checked and cleaned twice a week.

Weekly maid service is provided. Additional maid service available upon request. Cot and high chair available if required.

From Kings Lynn, United Kingdom Jul 2011

this property was perfect for us and our friends, altho we only used one of the kitchens as it was easier that way as we prefered the property as one big house rather than 2 small!!
my kids absolutely loved the pool, and so did thge adults lol.
the location of the property is perfect everywhere you want to go is just a short drive, we went to both water parks, they were great!
i definately recommend this property, i would definately go there again!!


From Beverley, United Kingdom Aug 2010

We are a family of 4, plus 2 friends who rented Villa Gemeos for 10 days, at the end of Aug. We enquired about taking one half of the villa, but as this was too small, we took both villas, which was definitely the right decision, giving us ample space and a perfect layout. The villa is in a lovely position, but a car is needed, its location offering full access to the Algarve/ West Coast and all its beautiful coast line and activities.

Well equipped and clean, the villa and pool were ideal, though if sharing with strangers may not be ideal, due to closeness of the villas, and shared pool....other than that superb.

Thanks to the owner and his very friendly caretakers/ poolman and maids who were near by if needed. We all had a lovely holiday and will definitely be back.......


From Chippenham, United Kingdom Jul 2010

Villa Gemeos is available to rent as either a 4 person or 8 person property. With a family of 5 we rented both sides of the property and this provided an excellent location for our holiday having sole access to the pool and gardens. Given the close proximity of the 2 sides of the villa and the layout of the pool and garden area I would consider that renting it on a 4 person basis would be more suitable for 2 families who know each other and are happy to holiday together.

The location of the property is excellent with only a short walk to the beach and restaurants. Help was always on-hand from a friendly man called Dias who provided details on the local area including directions to the main supermarket.

Overall an excellent property and would definately recommend it for a family of 5 or more.

Perfect, comfortable, and silent place for family holiday


From Newcastle Upon Tyne

We have just had our best holiday staying in this spotlessly clean villa. We were well looked after locally by Geraldo, who acted as the local information bureau. We chose not to have a car and although it would have been handy for shopping as there is no shop locally, we really didnt need one. We found it easy, and not too expensive, to get taxis if we wanted to go somewhere i.e. supermarket, Albufeira & Portimao and the beach is within walking distance however we were happy to stay around the villa during the day. There are a couple of restuarants nearby if you want to go out but the facilities in the villa more than tempted us to stay in most nights. There were 7 of us, including 2 16 year old boys, and we all thoroughly enjoyed our very relaxing break.


From Hereford

Lovely villa, with fantastic pool in a great location as long as you have a car.
Villa needs updating, but fulfilled our needs. Had a great time

I stayed here with 3 others (we are 2 couples) in late June and we are absolutely in love with this place. The villa has 2 sections and each come with a master bedroom, twin room, kitchen, lounge and bathroom meaning that it you rented the whole villa there is ample room for up to 8 people. We spent most of our time by the villa in the pool, which had a cleaner who came once in the week but it wasn’t really needed as the pumps alone kept it clean enough to use. The location is beautiful and is only a few minutes walk from the small village of Benagil which has a great restaurant (O Algar I think) that is managed by the villa’s caretaker. He made us feel welcome and gave a great service. We absolutely loved our trip and are already planning our next one. Thank you!

Un séjour dans un cadre extérieur superbe, espace vert, terrasse, barbecue et une magnifique piscine ! la personne s'occupant de la maintenance au top discrète et disponible. Un bel espace de vie intérieur totalement adapté pour 2 couples avec enfants. Quelques optimisations seraient appropriées dans l'espace de vie intérieur : - lits double qui grincent et matelas fatigués - serrure de portes extérieurs défectueuses

Jay C Jun 2018

This is a great place to stay for nice relaxing holiday, its tucked away from the main roads and has a lovely view out towards the sea, it's particularly nice to look out from the roof which is easily accessible. Bedrooms are a good size with all the expected furniture, the remote control fans on the ceiling are surprisingly very good at keeping you perfectly cool at night. The kitchens are modern, they have plenty of cupboard and fridge space for food and drinks along with cutlery, utensils, pots and pans etc in the drawers. Bathrooms are also nice and modern, the showers are powerful and spacious. The best thing about this villa is the space outside, it's perfect for whatever you want to do, you can use the very stylish BBQ, there are tables and chairs outside which are in the shade for when you feel like having a meal or simply lounging outside without being blinded by the sun, in contrast to this there are umbrellas and sun loungers out by the pool ideal for having a little dip followed by topping up the tan. The pool itself is nice and clean and gets pretty deep at one end if you're the diving type, when you're done there is a shower outside next to the pool so you don't have to rinse and dry off inside leaving a trail of water through the place. There are a few local restaurants and shops in walking distance nearby, although you will need to drive to the supermarket and stock up if you're not planning on eating out much. This is a lovely place in a nice quiet area and would very much recommend staying here.

Morerice Sanders Apr 2018

A great and complete villa with a lot of extra's. The villa was clean and also around the villa everything was in very good shape. We enjoyed staying at the villa. Also in the near area a lot to do, like boattrips and seeing Dolphins, shopping, a nice beach (only 10 minute walk).

Nicola Williams Apr 2018

If you are looking for a peaceful, relaxing holiday then this is the villa for you. It has a traditional Portuguese interior but modern in the areas you want them (Kitchen and Bathrooms). It is one of the cleanest villas I have ever stayed in with plenty of crockery, hot water and wonderful views. On a clear night I recommend sitting on the roof patio and star gazing, we saw shooting stars most evenings. The location is amazing very quiet and peaceful. The beach and local restaurants are only a 10-15 min walk (take a torch at night). The beaches are beautiful with golden sand. The highlight for me were the caves at Benagil which are within walking distance. You can even swim to them or take a boat that takes you to all the caves along the coastline. A car is essential to get around. There is a large supermarket within a 10 min drive.. We have already booked for next year.

Simon Brooks Sep 2017

Fantastic location nestled into other Portuguese owned properties. Extraordinarily quiet but only 15 minutes walk from the beaches and boats to the caves. Beautiful sea views from the garden and a lovely pool. House is very well equipped with very well presented Bathrooms and a newly refurbished kitchen. We will most certainly visit again.
