“Excellent villa- highly recommended”
Reviewed 22 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

A great villa which has been fabulously renovated by Howard.Great for families and all grown ups ...the kids are well looked after so the grown ups can have peace and quiet as well.Very well equipped from SKY tv to Sonos sound system and even a bar!

Hopefully we will get the chance to stay at the villa again in the future...well recommended.

“Fully loaded villa”
Reviewed 30 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Just returned from an excellent stay at villa Gourmet. The villa has everything you need for a fantastic family holiday. The pool was excellent, warm with a safety cover to keep the heat in. The pool loungers are very comfy. The outside kitchen is excellent with a pizza oven and the owner Howard kindly brought us some dough to make our pizza which was good fun. The house itself is well laid out, TVs in most rooms and sonas music system, full sky tv so you can watch movies on a night. For the kids there is a great games room with pool, table tennis, table football and even bikes to use. Play station 3 and lots of board games to keep them entertained. The jacuzzi hot tub outside was a perfect temperature. There really is too much to mention! We will definitely be back soon, the area is quiet but within 10 minutes there is plenty of shopping and restaurants. An ideal place for a relaxing family holiday, lovely beaches and friendly people. I searched the internet for ages looking for a fully loaded villa and villa Gourmet was just perfect for us.

“What a fantastic villa!!”
Reviewed 20 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

This villa has everything you could want and then some. I really don't know where to start. The villa itself is fantastic - the kitchen is equipped with everything you could want including an enormous stove and a walk in fridge. There is a built in music system, an abundance of tvs with full sky plus, a DVD and also games console. The garage is set up as a games room including a pool table, table tennis and football table. For the energetic, there are also 4 bikes including helmets. The bedrooms are a good size and all have their own bathroom.

The inside of this villa is great but it is the outside that makes it truely special. There are numerous areas to sit around the house all with exceptionally clean cream outdoor furniture. The pool loungers are immaculate and are clearly looked after. The pool and hot tub are both a great size and well maintained.

The outdoor kitchen is brilliant. You are able to open the and feel like you are outside whilst still having all the mod cons to hand including the huge BBQ grill, wok stove, fridge, freezer, dishwasher, sink and the amazing pizza oven. It was great to make our own pizzas for lunch.

Howard (the villa owner) is fantastic and on hand as much as you need him to be. He is only a call or email away if you need advice, restaurant bookings, pizza dough (thanks again).

We didnt have children with us but there were loads of faciliites for them.

I would definitely recommend this villa to anyone wanting a luxury villa holiday in the Algarve. This is a fantastic villa in a central location with many special features.

“A wonderful well equiiped Villa in an outstanding location”
Reviewed 12 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

This was the 11th year that we have stayed in villas around the town of Carvoiero and the the 5th consecutive time we have stayed in villas managed by Villaview. All the villas have been of a very high standard and exceptionally well equipped however Villa Gourmet is the most sumptuous yet. All our needs were catered for and Howard could not have been more helpful whilst never being intrusive. A great holiday and we will definitely be coming back next year
