Located within a ten minute walk of a selection of shops, restaurants and a sandy beach, Villa Casa da Galé enjoys a gorgeous sea view both from the pool area and the upper floor, and is a great choice for a family holiday. The accommodation is split over two levels, with one en-suite and one double bedroom with a separate shower room on the ground floor, and a separate kitchen equipped with a range of modern appliances, including a dishwasher, fridge freezer, microwave, oven and a hob.

About Eduardo at Popular Villas

The owner says: I live in the North of Portugal and I bought this villa as a second home for vacation.

Why Eduardo at Popular Villas chose Albufeira

The location was one of the reasons to buy it, the proximity to the sea and the fantastivc view was the best gift when on holiday.

What makes this villa unique

I imagined myself sitting in a deck chair relaxing on the 1st floor with a sunset ahead and realized that dream. The sunbeds are there, the sunset also!

Good location

  • 4 of 5

The villa was nice, although a lot smaller than the photos lead you to believe. It was a great location being only a five minute (ten minute on a very slow pace) walk from a beautiful beach. There weren't any facilities at the beach but it was beautiful, sandy and quiet.

There was a lovely, family friendly Italian restaurant literally a stones throw from the villa. We ate there three times in one week as it was so nice, and easy.

As we were a group of two families with three children and a baby between us it was cheaper to hire a mini bus taxi than to get the bus. So it was actually very easy to get around. We travelled into Albufeira one day and to Zoomarine another. The rest of the time all we needed was the pool and beach!

The villa was well equipped, a bonuses being the heated shower outside. Negatives were that the pool wasn't able to be heated, and the beds were incredibly uncomfortable. Really hard, thin mattress with rough sheets.

The villa rep was very friendly and helpful. I would recommend asking to see her on arrival as it was very helpful for local information and for any questions on the villa (for example setting the safe up). She was easy to get hold of and sorted out any issue within a good response time. The internet went off and we had an engineer round the same day. The shame was if they'd shown us where it was it was just a case of refreshing it.

The electrics kept in tripping, as it was the fridge that wouldn't work we had an electrician round within an hour.

All in all I would recommend this villa, but probably only for the price we paid. €800 for April. We were disappointed with the size compared to the photos but couldn't really complain for the price, I wouldn't, however, have been happy paying full summer time price.

Location

From the Owner

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Faro at 45 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : Bar at 150 Metres Nearest Golf : Salgados at 1.6 Kilometres Nearest Train : Ferreiras at 13 Kilometres Nearest Motorway : A22 - Albufeira at 6 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : Restaurant at 150 Metres Nearest Beach : Galé at 150 Metres Car: not necessary

Galé is a family friendly beach resort, known for its long stretch of golden sand to the west, and the lovely coves surrounded by limestone cliffs, on the east side. The resort has grown increasingly popular over the past few years and offers many good restaurants including a Michelin awarded restaurant, a number of beachside bars, several cafés, mini-markets and a large supermarket. Most of our Galé villas are in quiet residential areas, and some are within walking distance to the beach and other local amenities.

The nearby resort of Albufeira, known for its fantastic sandy beaches and sizzling nightlife, is only a few minutes drive away. Both the Old Town and the Oura Strip in Albufeira, provide for all the entertainment and amenities expected in such a popular holiday resort.

A 10 minute drive inland will take you to the charming village of Guia, popular for its chicken piri-piri restaurants, and the Algarve Shopping, a modern shopping centre with an excellent range of shops, cafés and restaurants. You can also enjoy the dolphins, seals and sea lion shows at the nearby ZooMarine ocean park.

The keen golfer will be happy to have a golf course within 5 minutes drive, but within a 20-30 minutes drive, some of the best golf courses in Europe can be found in Vilamoura to the east, and in Alcantarilha to the west.
