About the property

Casa Sofia is a relatively new build villa of just 8 years, with a private swimming pool and spacious patio area with plenty of room for sunbathing on the loungers or relaxing on the outdoor sofa. There is a built in bbq area and 2 sitting areas. This year we have a summer/pool house with a 4m x 4.40m sun canopy, inside a sofa bed that can sleep 2 extra people.

It has three double bedroom (one with shower en suite) which can sleep up to six people, all of which have wall mounted electric heaters. There is a family bathroom with shower and bidet. There is an open planned modern fully equipped kitchen and living area with an integral log burning fire

The living area has a flat screen TV, satellite TV in both English and Portuguese and wifi.

The kitchen has everything you need for your stay; large american style fridge freezer with filtered water and ice machine, fan oven, microwave, kettle, toaster and coffee machine. Located in the utility room at the rear of garage is a shower, sink, dish washer and washing machine.

Minutes by car there are 2 beautiful beaches-clergio and ariffana, there are bars and restaurants at both beaches and ideal for surfing.

There is a small local shop which is minutes from the property which sells a selection of fresh and convenience foods.

There are three bar restaurants which are also close by, which are all very reasonable.

About Simone & Gary

Simone & Gary

Simone & Gary purchased this villa in 2012

Why Simone & Gary chose Aljezur

We were living in Spain at the time but it just did not feel right so one day we drove here and we both fell in love with the area.

What makes this villa unique

We came across this piece of land that would have the back of the house once built facing south, we have the sun all day long, perfect for sunbathing.

Never again

  • 1 of 5

We arrived late at nigth, there was nobody to meet us, there was no babycot while we did ask for one, there basically was no information about anything.

The inside was clean but the outside was not at all, cigarette butts everywhere, broken umbrella, broken sunshade, dirty sunloungers. We complained about it after which they fixed the sunshade. As we were staying for 3 weeks we asked what we were supposed to do with towels and bedding. They told us that they would arrange cleaners which we thought was really great. But now they say we requested cleaning and they are withholding money from the refund! The house itself is ok, the kitchen is not as fully fitted as advertised, it does not have a dishwasher and it lacks clean pots and pans. There was no waterboiler but upon request they brought us one. The sofa is literally falling apart and the bathrooms had mold in the shower and sink. Even though they gave us a discount as it was the end of season, it was still not worth the money. Overall a bad experience.

Owner's Response: Without your criticism we could not improve and make a better experience for future guests. If no-one was here to meet and greet you then who gave you the key to our property? There is a travel cot here. There is a water boiler/kettle, it boils off the gas hob. 1 cigarette butt in an ashtray, OK that shouldn't have been there but that does not constitute writing littered with cigarettes butts. You would wash your wet suit off over the swimming pool after being surfing leaving sand at the bottom of the pool then complain that the pool was dirty! We have bought a new sofa, addressed the mold issue in the en suite bathroom, replaced the sun shade and repaired or replaced the other items in your comments. Before the start of the next summer season additional improvements and extras will be made. Simone & Gary

Lovelly villa @ Vale da Telha / Aljezur

  • 5 of 5

Good 3 bedroom villa with a very nice swimming pool and outside place. Lacks a dish washing machine and a new living room sofa, but besides that, you should expect pleasant owners with a good facilities considering Vale da Telha place. The location is near wonderful beaches, food and everything that Portugal west side of Algarve has to offer. I definitely recommend this place

Discover unspoilt coastline.

  • 5 of 5

This is a quality property that provides excellent accommodation and comfort. The garden and pool add to its appeal. Its location and surroundings are ideal for the quiet, relaxing holiday, but it is close enough to major facilities and attractions. The nearby coastline is fantastic, with unspoilt beaches and very good fish restaurants.

Will definitely return.

Hier kann Mensch entspannen

  • 5 of 5

Haus und Außenbereich sind gut durchdacht. Besonders angenehm ist das Sonnensegel mit einem bequemen Sofa darunter. Hier kann man in der Wärme dösen, den Vögeln und dem leisen Rauschen der Bäume zuhören, wunderbar abschalten und ist doch geschützt vor der Sonne. Auch der beheizte Pool mit 21 Grad konstanter Temp. ist sehr einladend.

Für den Innenbereich wären Fliegengitter an Türen und Fenstern, insbesondere in den Schlafzimmern und Bädern, noch sehr schön.

Der Kontakt mit den Vermietern Simone und Garry ist wirklich sehr nett und unkompliziert, zeitliche Verschiebungen waren für sie kein Problem. Da wir sehr spät abends ankamen, ohne Gelegenheit etwas einzukaufen, hatte Simone Prosser uns Kaffee, Milch, Brotbelag bereit gestellt. So stand dem ersten Urlaubskaffee am nächsten Morgen nichts im Wege. Das fanden wir total nett. Wir haben uns wohlgefühlt und hatten einen sehr schönen Aufenthalt! Alles Gute Euch weiterhin!

Schönes und gepflegtes Haus in guter Lage!

  • 5 of 5

Super Preis Leistung! Die in ruhiger Lage gelegene Villa bietet viel Platz und Komfort, perfekt zum entspannen. Bei Ankunft war alles sauber und ordentlich vorbereitet. Die Besitzerin Simone war stets entgegenkommend und freundlich. Die Matratze in einem Zimmer könnte noch ausgetauscht werden, da die Federn ein wenig gedrückt haben. Sonst war alles top! Wir haben den Aufenthalt sehr genossen und können das Domizil nur empfehlen. Gerne kommen wir wieder!

Beste Grüße

Nikita

Recomendo vivamente. Voltarei sem qualquer sombra de dúvida.

  • 5 of 5

Casa com excelentes condições em zona bastante calma. Bastante espaçosa e muito bem equipada. Muito boa para famílias com crianças. Piscina grande com diversas espreguiçadeiras e com um sofá de apoio.

Caso volte a passar férias nesta zona, esta casa estará em primeiro lugar na lista de escolhas.

A Simone foi bastante atenciosa e mostrou-se sempre disponível para ajudar.

Wifi - Muito Bom

Tv por Cabo - Muito bom
