We know that you might be feeling uncertain about booking your next holiday with the ever-changing travel restrictions, which is why we've introduced our Travel Restrictions Guarantee for your peace of mind.
Book your next villa holiday with confidence, safe in the knowledge that you can either move your dates or receive a holiday voucher for the full amount paid if your travel dates are restricted by either FCDO/local government advice advice or local restrictions in your destination country.*
The Travel Restrictions Guarantee is automatically included in the website price and can be removed before you book, however we strongly advise you keep it to give you added flexibility and protection.
You will still need to purchase a comprehensive travel insurance policy as soon as your booking is confirmed. This insurance should, as a minimum, protect you against cancellation, curtailment, medical expenses, loss/theft of possessions and documents, personal liability and airline failure.
Terms and Conditions
'Travel Restrictions Guarantee' applies to bookings for arrival between 1st May 2021 and 31st December 2021 only.

If there are restrictions in your destination country preventing you from being able to travel to that destination, you will be able to cancel your villa and receive a voucher for the full amount paid for your villa to rebook when you are ready to do so.
'Travel Restrictions Guarantee' is automatically included in the search results price on the solmarvillas.com website.
The premium paid for 'Travel Restrictions Guarantee' is non-commissionable.
The premium can be removed from the basket if not required. If removed during booking, you still have 7 days from confirmation to add this back on if needed.
For bookings made less than 6 weeks before arrival, this premium can't be added or removed after booking.
The 'Travel Restrictions Guarantee' is non-refundable, non-transferable and non-commissionable.

Faro Airport (FAO)
A sweeping three miles stretch of perfectly manicured golden sand dominates this part of the Portuguese coastline, and is backed by dramatic limestone cliffs making it one of the Algarve's most picturesque resorts. Gale beach (or Praia de Gale) is suitable for all ages, with calming waters ideal for paddling on some days, and on others there are stronger waves making water sports a great option. Our villas in Gale are within easy reach of the beach, whilst the vibrant town of Albufeira is just a short drive away.
This villa was in close proximity to local attractions however a car was needed to get to shops as there were very few buses. There were several restaurants in walking distance with a variety of food available. There was a few bars within walking distance and prices were very reasonable. The villa has a huge pool but very cold at this time of year (October). Plenty of sunbeds available at the pool. Table-Tennis table and ball/ paddles available. Good hot running water in plentiful supply and towels provided for bathroom and pool. Villa and pool were also cleaned during the week which was very good. Air-Con worked well but actually wasn't necessary in October. Has a nice sea view from the balcony. Very quiet area which was welcomed and villa is not overlooked by neighbouring accommodation. Good sized table with plastic chairs for sitting outside if required. If you have a car the beach is only a 5 minute drive and was lovely. The entrance gateway and doors all felt very secure and the villa had an alarm to set when going out however the alarm was a bit temperamental and sometimes would not set and we could not work out why. The bedrooms were well furnished and well stocked with storage space and hangers. Blackout shutters were very good and ensured that a lie in was possible if desired.

We had an amazing week staying in Villa Natal. We are a family of six and the villa was so spacious and the pool was a great size also. The air conditioning was well needed as it was so warm in July and it worked perfectly. The area is amazing so quiet and no noise at all so its ideal if you want to get away from everything and relax. Shops are within walking distance, about 15 mins to Iceland and a small local shop is closer but less of a choice there. Plenty of restaurants within a few mins walk of the villa also. We originally didn't hire a car but there was a car hire place within 5 mins walk and we hired a car here for the last three days. Highlight for us was the Albuferia Marina we did a tour and ate here and it was so reasonable well worth the money and it was less than a ten minute drive from the villa. Fantastic holiday definitely recommend Villa Natal.

Lovely spacious and clean villa with a good sized pool. Walking distance to supermarket ( approx 15mins) and restaurants (closest 5mins). If you are a large party it is best to book the restaurants. Our only criticism would be the lack of mugs and glasses for a villa that sleeps 10.
