BAGGAGE SAVING - Pool towels and hair dryers are provided

Galé/ Vale da Parra,

Approx 4 Km to the west of Albufeira Old Town, are the stunningly beautiful ‘Blue Flag’ beaches of Gale. The beach is around 5km long with clean golden sand. Therefore even in the height of summer one can find plenty of space to sunbathe. The beach is made up of soft sand and is safe for children. It has all the usual water sports one could expect in the summer time. However from November to March it is very quiet and you can walk west, along the Ocean edge, to Armação de Pêra. This walk is about 5 Km long passing soft sand dunes with the Nature reserve of Salgados on your right. As you arrive into Armação de Pêra you will see many quite quaint beach bars along with many fishermen’s boats.

Turning left (east) on Gale beach, the scenery changes entirely, with small cliffs and rock formations where you will regularly see anglers fishing for their evening meal. The cliffs form many intimate coves that give a safe and natural wind break, where children can play in the crashing waves or explore the rock pools. From here it is possible to clamber over the rock and head east to as far as São Rafael beach (recently voted one of the top ten beaches in Europe), passing São Lourenço, Everisto,–Castello and Cohelho beaches, each with their own beach restaurants and character and absolutely stunning. In between these beaches there are many small sandy coves, where you can sit for hours undisturbed. Also the cliff walks between these beaches makes you feel you are on some desert island with lots of species of natural flower and fauna.

To the North of Galé (approx) 2km is the small and pleasant village of Vale da Parra with its restaurants and bars.


Guia has its own very special character. It has a good mix of Portuguese, ex pats & tourists . It is also the home of Chicken Piri-Piri, which is absolutely delicious! There are many Chicken Piri-Piri restaurants as well as others that serve both Portuguese and international cuisine. There are also bars, banks, chemist, post office, fruit and veg. market, bakery and mini market. The small urbanisations of Barrancos and Quinta dos Alamos are on the edge of the village and only a short walk to the centre.

From Guia it is only a few minutes drive to the Algarve Shopping Centre. Here you will find many shops including a very large supermarket. There are also many cafés and restaurants plus a cinema. So plenty to do!

A five minute drive to the west of Guia is the very popular Zoomarine. This is simply a must for all the family as it has so much to offer. It has a fantastic 4 dimensional cinema which is great fun. There is also a 'Big Wheel' where, once at the top, one can see for miles. Zoo marine also boasts an excellent and educational underwater wildlife tour with all sorts of strange creatures swimming around. The real star attraction though, and the real highlight of your visit, will be the highly entertaining 'Dolphin show'. The Dolphins, which are very well looked after, do all sorts of clever tricks, including leaping many meters out of the water and into the air. All the family, especially the kids will love this!

There are also several high quality water parks within a short drive from the Village.

Albufeira Old Town,

About 10 minutes away by car to the East of Vale da Parra is the Old town of Albufeira. It is, and has been for many years, a favourite destination of the British and the Irish. Although there have been many changes over the years since I first arrived, the 'Old Town still has that magical feel to it. Sitting in a bar or restaurant in the square with a glass of wine or beer in hand listening to the street entertainment is absolutely fantastic.

From the square, it is a very leisurely stroll through the cobbled streets to 'Fishermans Beach'. Sadly, most of the fishermen have now moved to a new site nearer to the modern Albufeira Marina. However, there is an absolutely fantastic golden sandy beach that the kids will love. Also there is several super restaurants serving a range of various cuisine. These restaurants are beautifully shielded from the wind, especially in the winter, and are a real sun trap.

Lovely holiday

  • 5 of 5

The villa is fantastic with loads of space.

We stayed for one week. In that time the pool man came twice as did the maid. The gardeners also visited. It is beautifully kept and feels luxurious.

The local agent was also very helpful.

If you get time its well worth going into the local village. It feels very Portuguese and has two lovely restaurants near the main church.

Villa 81 Alcantarilha - Nice villa in quiet cu-de-sac location

  • 4 of 5

We're a Family with 5 year old and stayed for 2 weeks in July 2016. Villa has recently come onto rental market, we were only the second tenants and it showed in terms of comfort and facilities. The location was great for us, it's just 1 minute drive south of the N125 and a short walk to the the village centre which suited us, and less than 10 mins drive from coast at Armacao de Pera to the south and zoo marine/Guia/Alharve shopping to the east. villa is split over 2 floors

We liked

-Location, at end of cul-de-sac, electric gates to property and fully enclosed (child safe)

-Outside villa was nice, pool to south and lovely garden area to west (property also not overlooked on these two vistas, and on a clear day you could just make out the sea to the south).

-The pool was medium sized and clean on arrival and visited twice over our stay (note the shallow end is (1.3m straight in off the steps)

-Plenty of patio furniture, loungers and two big parasols

-the Weber bbq was good as you could locate where the sun was (in the gardens early evening

-comfort/furniture was of good quality, beds particularly comfy, better than most holiday rentals

-awesome Bose sound system if that's your thing

-kitchen really well equipped.

-bathrooms inc showers very good

-maid visits quick and not obtrusive

-very private, whilst there is a villa adjacent to east of property, they could only see in via bedroom balcony, to the south and west was scrub land and a valley which were nice.

-great location, just 10 mins walk into village which had fab restaurants, a great bar, and aldi!

What could be better?

-few minor maintenance things, the shutter retaining clips were loose, one of the parasols was loose and not screwed into base, fine for me as I could fix but not every will so would be worth checking periodically. The smoke alarm fell off the the ceiling in kitchen (was only taped on - I presume last minute fix for the rental requirement). The master bedroom aircon was not working properly on arrival (running warm and dripping, although I was impressed that it was attended to within the same day it was reported and fixed).

-upstairs only the master bedroom has aircon, the two other beds don't. This is a shame as you couldn't even really open the windows in beds 2 and 3 as directly outside were the condenser units for the aircon of the master bed and downstairs and their running noise was too much at night. At this rental price I would expect AC in all the bedrooms
