“Amazing Holiday!”
Reviewed August 22, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

From the very start Paul and Cindy made my family and I so welcome. They were on hand if any problems should occur, however, Villa Gemma was so perfect we had none! Every room was spotless, the layout of the villa was perfect especially having two young children who could use a playroom! The pool and surrounding gardens were well thought out and easy to use. Being a frequent Carvoeiro visitor the location of Villa Gemma is perfect for both the beach and all local amenities. We can't wait to go back next year!

“A superb villa; perfect for a great holiday”
Reviewed August 6, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We were two families from Sweden that trully enjoyed Villa Gemma for a week in July of this year. The villa offered everthing we could have hoped for and more - with a very high standard. It (and its host couple) is highly recommeded for a great vacation in the most beautiful part of Algarve.

“Brilliant Holiday”
Reviewed August 2, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We also have just returned from Villa Gemma and have had a wonderful
time. There were 11 of us and the villa was more than big enough to cope
with us all. The garden is extensive so there are plenty of places to be on your own if needed. The villa was extremely clean as well as being furnsihed and equipped to a high standard. It had everything that you would need. The pool was great and we spent a lot of time in it. Would recommend the paying for the heating though. The villa is up a slight hill but it was very easy to walk the various bars and resturants and we did walk into Carvoeiro at least a couple of times. Paul and Cindy who managed the Villa were great and helped us with various things. Although we would like to keep this villa a secret so we could use it whenever we wanted,we are aware that the owners need to make a living and we would recommend this villa and would use again. The transfers were also booked via the Villa and again can not recommend these enough either

“Wonderful Family Holiday”
Reviewed June 22, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We have just returned from a family holiday at Villa Gemma and cannot wait to return again soon. There were eleven of us being six adults and five children and the villa had everything you could possibly hope for. The villa is beautiful and very well equipped. All the rooms were furnished to a very high standard and the beds were really comfortable. The pool was lovely as was the BBQ area. There are plenty of areas to sit and relax. There is also a lovely, safe garden area for the children to play.
The Villa is also near to all amenities and local beaches.
All in all our holiday was as near perfect as could possibly be.
