Guestbook comments from the manager

'Once again (4th visit<) a fantastic and relaxing holiday in a gorgeous spot literally within 2 mins walking distance to the beautiful Sandy Beach of Gale. Our lovely hosts Manuel and Josie as always so helpful, leaving sad but extremely relaxed, planning to be back very soon.' John and Diane Lloyd



Our first trip to the Algarve and definitely not our last. Thank you Josie and Manuel to make things easy for us. We will never forget the lovely sunsets we could enjoy from

the villa and how the kids enjoy the swimming pool and the lovely beach. I would definitely like to stay here again in the not distance future.' Family Robbins

Location

Coast/Beach:

The nearest beach is Praia da Gale, nearby Praia da Coelha and Praia de Sao Loureço. Gale is a particularly wonderful spot to watch the fantastic sunsets and sunrises.

Travel:

Faro is about a 40 minutes drive. Car hire is not essential for this villa as there are a number of good restaurants and bars within walking distance and you can walk to the beach. Taxis are reasonably priced. However, we do always recommend car hire to make the most of your holiday in the Algarve as there are so many wonderful places to visit. It is a shame not to explore! We can organize transfers to and from the villa at very reasonable rates. Excellent car hire rates available. Contact-us.

Distances:

Water parks are within easy reach - Aqualand and Zoomarine (where you can swim with Dolphins) only a 15 minute drive and then a bit further Slide and Splash and Aqua Show. Many activities are close to hand - golf, water sports, tennis, horse riding, fishing, diving and much more. Guia Shopping Centre is situated 10 minute drive with a selection of shops, restaurants, cinema and bowling.

Wonderful location!

  • 5 of 5

This villa is situated in an amazing location in the lovely town of Gale. The long sandy beach is simply a stones throw away and there are several excellent restaurants and a supermarket Apolonia (a little pricey) within easy walking distance. Algarve Shopping Centre is only a 10 minute drive away providing a huge range of shops, a food court and a much more reasonably priced large supermarket. The villa itself has everything you need for a wonderful holiday. The pool was great and it’s well worth paying extra for pool heating as we were able to use it every day during our stay even on the overcast days. WiFi was good. Manuel the owner was excellent from first contact with him about the booking until the day we left. He met us in nearby Guia and took us to the villa. He visited several times during our stay to make sure all was ok but was never intrusive.

This is a great villa in a beautiful part of the Algarve that we will definitely return to.

Thank you Manuel for all your help!

Wonderful quiet villa in a fabulous location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in Gale. The villa was absolutely lovely. Spotlessly clean when we arrived and a few handy starter items to get you settled including a nice cold beer! The villa is literally right next to the beach, and there were some fantastic sunsets to be seen on an evening walk. The owner, Manuel, could not have done more to make you feel welcome, and was on hand for local knowledge and support. He checked in with us regularly without being intrusive, and the villa and pool were both cleaned a few times during our stay. We do hope to be returning again one day in the future for another relaxing break, and thank you Manuel for everything!

Wonderful stay at our beautiful Gale beach house

  • 5 of 5

Our family (kids aged 8, 6 and 3) all had a fantastic time! Steps from a nice private stretch of Gale beach with great boardwalks. Nice large pool with great patio areas to enjoy the sunset. Manuel (the owner) was friendly and attentive. Groceries amd restaurants nice and close - including a few within walking distance. This is a great spot to explore the Algarve or just to relax and drink green wine. We'll be back!

Amazing villa and location

  • 5 of 5

We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived at the villa to be met Manuel and his wife. We were given a tour of the property and all the amenities were clearly explained. The welcome/grocery pack that Manuel had supplied us with was much appreciated after our journey. Manuel was very helpful and maintained this excellent service through-out our stay. The beach was practically on our door-step, as well as a selection of restaurants/shops within a short walking distance.This villa is ideal for families. We requested the pool to be heated as it was a winter month and Manuel was able to deliver this. We are hoping to return later in the year as we enjoyed our memorable stay!

Holiday arVentos du Mar Villa in Gale' Portugal

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Ventos du Mar in March 2016 and had a wonderful two weeks here. We were made very welcome by the owner Manuel, who could not have done more for us. He left a welcome pack with essentials and took us to the local supermarket the day after we arrived.

The villa has everything you could need, and is very clean. The maids came to clean twice a week, as did the pool cleaner/gardener.

The villa is located a stones throw from the beautiful beach, located at the end of a quiet road. There are a few restaurants very near to the villa, which were lovely and ideal to sit and watch the sun go down from.

There is a large supermarket five minutes walk away, as well as a local shop at the top of the road for essentials.

The villa is very well located for a relaxing holiday, with plenty to do not far away should you wish. Zoo Marine is well worth a visit if you have children.
