Summer Holiday 2016

  • 5 of 5

A great place to stay if you want a relaxing break. The owner Andy was very helpful and friendly and offers a pick up service to and from the airport which we recommend you take. The property was a 5 minute walk to beautiful Gale beach which had 3 lovely restaurants. Nearby was a lovely Italian restaurant and bar Fusion was not only a bar but the owner offered a taxi service which we found very helpful as the taxis were a bit scarce. The property itself was ideal for 2 and was very accurately described. It was clean and well maintained. There was a great supermarket within 2 minutes walk. Andy (the owner) made sure to point out all these places to us when he dropped us off. All in all we had a wonderful stay and we look forward to another holiday there again soon. We would highly recommend this listing.

This is a lovely little apartment overlooking fields and hills in the distance. It is nicely decorated, clean and well equipped and provides both Wi-Fi and satellite TV covering most of the Sky channels and English TV.

There are two supermarkets in walking distance with a good range of products and reasonably priced.

The apartment is within a short walking distance from a beautiful sandy beach which stretches 3.5 miles. There are a number of restaurants and little bars in the area offering a variety of cuisine and it is a 15 minute drive to the Algarve Shopping Centre for those of you who love to shop.

The owner (Andy) is great, very personable and will offer a pick up and drop off service from the Airport if required.

Great apartment

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for a nice, quiet holiday with all the comforts of home, then this is a great apartment and excellent value for money. Andrew (the owner) offers a transfer service to and from the airport and I would recommend using this if you do stay at the apartment - the local knowledge he gave us on the way to the apartment was really useful throughout the holiday.

Gale is a quiet resort compared to Albufeira and the restaurants are scattered around so you do need to do a bit of walking. We never had a bad meal, the food and the service was excellent! There is a lovely and modern italian restaurant a short walk from the apartment which have live music nights when you don't feel like walking!

Taxis are quite scarce in the area but if you go to Bar Fusion (not far from the apartment) a lovely girl called Beatric will organise a taxi for you and it is very reasonably priced - it cost 10E to Albufeira and 5E to the Marina if you fancy a change.

The Marina has a row of restaurants and the cocktails are gorgeous, try the mango & passionfruit Mojito!

The beach is a short walk from the apartment and goes on for miles, it is lovely golden sand and clean sea and there are plenty of water sports. You can walk to the next town along the beach which takes about an hour.

We had a great holiday and would definitely go back for a week of sun, good food and nice beaches.
