A really stylish, comfortable and perfectly located apartment. The bed is comfy, the shower is excellent and the kitchen is really well-equiped! The roofed balcony provides the perfect spot for relaxing with a great view of the river, even if it’s raining. Great to have a smart TV too! The location is ideal, only a couple of mins walk from the city centre and has car parking underneath the apartment (although best to check the flood warnings before you park). This place gave us the perfect base for exploring York and a cosy retreat when the weather turned bad. Would highly recommend!★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Myself and a group of 7 friends/couples stayed at the Vivenda Catarina at the start of May 2019. All I can say is the pictures do not do this villa justice! The whole place was spotless and furnished to a very high standard. Beautiful pool area and plenty sun loungers, two lovely outside dining areas and a BBQ we took full advantage of. The only downside I can think of is the fact the villa is very open plan and has a stunning mezzanine but this caused echoing as my friends are loud but it can’t be helped. This didn’t put us off at all and I will definitely be back! Excellent location, 5 min walk to a small convenience store and a further few mins to Spar. 10 minute walk to the main ‘strip’ but far enough away to not hear any noise. 5 stars!!!★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Our stay was beyond our expectations. We couldn’t have had a better holiday with our teenage children. We thought the property was out of this world. Very clean, had everything we needed to make our stay more than comfortable. The location was spot on. The house was a big part of why we had an amazing holiday and would definitely go back.★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Location great and very quiet. Easy walking distance to all bars and shops.
Villa had everything you needed to have a great holiday no struggling for crockery or glasses. Beds very comfortable.
Pool heating excellent beach five minute walk away. Would go back in a minute!★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Thank you! We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay here at Villa Skye. The villa itself offered everything we needed - struggled to get the children out of the fantastic pool! We visited Alvor and Lagos and several villages near by. Alvor has so many great restaurants it is difficult to recommend any in particular - try as many as you can! The outdoor area was used frequently - all in all, great villa, great location and we are more than likely to return.★ ★ ★ ★ ★

VRBO property Villa Cabrita Gale - Superb location, large villa, Ttennis, walk to restaurant, beach
The villa is superbly located; the location allows easy access to all points of interest. The cleanliness, the facilities ... allowed us to spend an exceptional week in the Algarve. Really awesome!

Just returned from a weeks holiday . My husband and I, our three daughters and their partners. (Age range 22 to 57!!)The villa was everything we hoped for. In a quiet location yet within 3 min walk to a fantastic beach and beach bar… Within walking distance to ‘the strip’ with plenty to occupy the younger members of our group. Great local restaurants. Handy for taxi’s, local supermarkets and a great local bar. Can thoroughly recommend this villa★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Fantastic stay with our children. Ocholo booked our trip and all went smoothly. Child friendly for our 1 year old, all open plan downstairs is great plus there was a free travel cot and highchair, plastic bowls/cups and cutlery etc. We took the Playstation for our older children and hooked it up to the Smart Tv in the living room. Filey is always our favourite and we holiday there in the summer too but this winter stay was just as enjoyable. The beach is still great we luckily had crisp blue skies too, the kids had just as a good time and Shore House is just a short walk to town or to the amusements so the kids aren’t being put in the car all the time - perfect location and will definitely go back. We loved the comfy sofa we wanted to take it home!★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Perfect location - easy to get wherever you need to in a few minutes and it has a really nice view of the river, we chose to park on nunnery street car park as it looked a bit risky to use the garage due to the flood risk but this is a five minute walk and easy to get to! The apartment was spotless, really stylish and very well maintained, really nice to see some milk in the fridge and biscuits on the side. The bed was so comfy we slept really well! Great stay, thank you so much!★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Highly recommended Villa and a wonderful short trip with 26 degrees in November
Thanks Lynne for organising for us, we had a great short trip, wonderful villa, clean and tidy. Carmo the rep was wonderful. We will highly recommend your company and this villa to friends and family and will not hesitate to use you again! 5 stars and can’t think of anything negative to say! We had 26 degrees in November… what a fantastic winter break!! Thanks again, Magnus

Great location overlooking the river right in the centre of York. Very clean apartment, comfy bed. We parked in the train station car park which was reasonably priced as we thought our car would be too long for the garage. We really enjoyed sitting on the balcony. It was the first weekend of outdoor eating during lockdown and everywhere was booked but as cooking facilities were very good, we were happy to eat at the apartment. Would definitely stay again. 5 Stars.

Villa Skye was the perfect setting for our family holiday and wedding venue.
From arriving at the big gates and driveway we were completely stunned at how beautiful it was and couldnt wait to unpack and soak up the sun in the amazing swimming pool.
Arthur the owner was such a nice guy showing us around his villa and explaining everything we needed to know, he left us feeling very welcome and we had all his contact details in case we needed further assistance. Thank you again for making our holiday/wedding one to remember!
Love From Mr & Mrs McMullen
