We had an excellent holiday in the splendid Villa Gigi. All the family thoroughly enjoyed its elegance and exceptional facilities. Much time was spent in the garden and around the swimming pool in the wonderful early October weather with hardly a cloud in the sky for the whole of the week we were there. With three grandchildren of 2 years old and under, the set up of the villa was ideal.
Just to confirm that we had a lovely holiday at Villa Gigi.
Villa Gigi was the perfect luxury holiday home! It was beautifully furnished and we had everything we could possibly need and more. We especially loved the huge and impressive master bedroom with the hanging swing on the balcony. The location was ideal for us as we prefer not to drive to restaurants in the evenings so we can both enjoy a glass of wine (or two). Overall, it was another fantastic holiday with Sandy Blue which will be very difficult to top!
We had a fantastic time at villa Gigi in September 2016. The interior of the villa was spacious with very contemporary furnishings which give the villa a very airy and calm feel. The outside is spacious and we enjoyed plenty of drinks on the patio, the beautiful upstairs terrace and the BBQ was excellent for casual lunches and dinners. The 5 minute walk to the beach,Praca and vale de lobo clubhouse really set Gigi apart in terms of location. The service from SandyBlue was great. The team were always on hand to respond to questions and requests . We had our 3 month old with us and sandy blue organised a fabulous babysitter at sometimes short notice as well as booking golf for us at the Quinta and vale de lobo courses. All round a great experience .
We returned very reluctantly to a rainy UK yesterday after a truly fabulous holiday in Villa Gigi! We have been lucky enough to holiday every year with our daughters, partners and now grandchildren and we couldn't have had a better week anywhere. This was our 4th time in Vale do Lobo and by far the most beautiful villa. The recent refurbishment is luxurious and superbly finished, everything we could have possibly wanted was there and it was perfect for the children. The garden was safe and we opted for the pool fencing which worked extremely well for the toddler. The service from Sandy Blue also helped make it very enjoyable as any queries were very quickly answered and dealt with. I would have no hesitation in recommending you to friends and family. All the holiday information you provided both before and during the stay covered all that we needed to know. The gadget file and holiday info file were both very well put together and useful. I could go on and on! Suffice to say we all were so sad to have to leave, but will definitely be back again.
Everything is amazing thank you and Villa Gigi exceeds our expectations, it is beautiful and incredibly well equipped, with everything we need.
The property refurbishment is amazing, you did a nice remodeling job.
We had a really fantastic holiday. The attention to detail from Sandyblue was incredible and villa Gigi first class.
We would choose SandyBlue every time now, your service has been amazing.
Many thanks. We had a lovely time in Portugal.
Villa Gigi was absolutely fabulous. We hugely enjoyed all of its facilities: the lovely spacious rooms; the super and extensive garden; the new kitchen and bathrooms; and the swimming pool and the table tennis. It was extremely well sited for the beach restaurants and the Vale do Lobo golf centre all of which were within easy walking distance for coffees, meals and golf. We hope to book it again. We very much appreciated the organisation provided by SandyBlue including the starter pack of food which was particularly welcome with a late arrival. We also greatly appreciated you allowing us to remain until 5pm on the day of departure. We realise that this was only possible because there was not a booking for the following week, but it made a huge difference to us with a late flight and a baby to cope with. And we had an extra day in the warm Algarve sunshine before our return the the wet North.
A wonderful experience and fantastic service from Sandyblue in Vale Do Lobo. We have just spent two weeks in a villa in Vale Do Lobo with Sandyblue being a fantastic host for our first visit to this location in Portugal. Outstanding attention to detail. Expectation on quality and service were just impeccable with our planned return and using Sandyblue in the spring. Beaches, restaurants and every possible amenity/request was supported through a simple call or email – Each answered within hours. Overall, I recommend Sandyblue for your vacation to this area.
We had a great time .
Villa Gigi provides a wonderful setting for a family holiday! The sense of space and grandeur of the villa and its grounds and the prime location to the hub of Val del lobo make it an ideal solution for a wonderful holiday experience that we would strongly recommend to anyone looking to stay on the Algarve.
We loved it! We were the 1st to stay there and miss it!
