Quality, air-conditioned apartment in small complex



Updated: 16-Oct-2016
Apartment in Gale, Nr Guia / Albufeira, Central Algarve - 5-10 Mins Walk To Beaches And Restaurants And Supermarkets

Well-appointed top-floor apartment, uniquely set amongst landscaped gardens in the highly sought after area of Galé. Unlike the vast majority of holiday-style condominiums, this property only shares facilities - which includes a lovely 45ft swimming pool - with just 10 other apartments, offering guests a more exclusive, peaceful and private environment.

Impressive fittings throughout, including flatscreen TV with some UK TV channels, comfy beds and quality furniture - not your average rental!

Accessed via a gated entrance, there is private parking right outside the door, as well as an underground garage. The grounds and pool are beautifully maintained for exclusive use of Galé Garden guests.

Located within a 5-10 minute walk of superb beaches, a host of restaurants and great supermarkets catering for all your needs. Algarve Shopping, Zoo Marine, Aqualand, the Marina and Albufeira Old Town itself can all be easily reached within 10 minutes by car.

This apartment is my fave of all I've stayed at in Portugal so far. It's like a home from home, got everything there and all good quality. Always lovely and clean and well looked after. (Sky TV is a bonus!) It's only a small complex of about 11 apartments all sharing the pool. I've been here 3 times and it's never too busy around the pool. You can walk to the beach which is around 10 mins walk. The beach itself is lovely, clean sand and serviced by about 3 restaurants directly on the beach all with good facilities.

I like the Gale area best as there are heaps of fab restaurants to walk to close by, a lovely Pastelleria to stop at for hot choccie or a night cap on the way home and for a small cab fare (around 12eu), you can take a ride into Albufeira Old Town. A bit further is 'The Strip' and you've got all the 'life' you need. This truly is a holiday destination for all types that want to experience some busy nights out or want a relaxed 'local' atmosphere and eat at some local restaurants. Ideal for couples or people with a small family too that like to eat out and take a walk in the eve.

My fave thing to do here is to have chicken piri piri at one of the beach restaurants watching the sun go down and drinking a local green wine or some rose.

Booking Notes:
We require a 30% deposit (non refundable). Balance will be due 8 weeks before departure. A security deposit of £150 for breakages will also be required 8 weeks before departure. This will be returned only once the apartment has been inspected and cleaning has taken place.

Changeover Day:
With the low-cost flights available nowadays, we do not have a set changeover day and rather than weekly holidays it's just as easy to choose a specific number of days. We can normally cater for this requirement (4 days is the minimum stay).
