“Feel like a "star" for a week”

Villa Gemma proved perfect for my family group of 8 adults and 4 children (0-5). The villa was a perfect holiday home with lots of room for everyone and the heated pool was the centre piece of the holiday. The shutters in each bedroom fooled the kids so they stayed in bed until 6am.
The location is excellent with easy access to several superb coves and beaches and not too far from a selection of supermarkets.
The only negative was that the property is close to new terrace developments. These were empty at the time. Star rating for the barbecue area for evening dining, all the family rated the villa 9.7/10.

“Fabulous villa in fab location! Loved it!”
Reviewed 5 November 2014 for a stay in August 2012

Fantastic villa with amazing accommodation. Slept 5 adults and 5 children no problem.
Really nicely kitted out and the pool is fantastic too.
The local town is a 5 minute drive away and has everything you need.
Loved it and would love to go back again :-)

“Everything you could want in the Algarve under 1 x Villa roof”
Reviewed 1 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

The standard of the villa is very high with all the peace and tranquility of the Algarve pace of life just sitting by the poolside.
Yet for just a few minutes away the clubs and bars and the bustle of what was just a fishing village 30 years ago fulfilled my teenagers dream!
The weather was mid 20s which seems to be the norm in October and November as Carvoeiro seems to have its own micro climate in the Algarve.
This is our 3rd trip to Villa Gemma and with all the team at villaview and especially Paul and Cindy who we would like to extend our warmest thanks for making our stay so enjoyable,it will deffinatly not be our last.

“Great high quality family villa”
Reviewed 26 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

This villa has everything you could want - We are a family of five (children 6,9,9), Grandparents and sister with partner. Spacious accommodation plus every room has a bathroom so we didn't feel on top of each other. High quality decor, lots of gadgets and luxuries. Pool fab but I would recommend you have the pool heating on. You will probably need a hire car but the local taxi service is great. We felt very looked after by the house managers and felt we could ask for help at any time. Planning to go back next year!
