Villa in Galé Beach, Albufeira, Central Algarve,Portugal, situated 50 mts. from the beach of Galé.

Situated 50mts. walk from one of the Algarve's beautiful stretch of sandy beach.

Lovely garden and pool. It is close to some of the best beaches on this part of the Algarve coast., such as S. Rafael, Evaristo, Coelha.. There are several good restaurants and a few bars within a easy walk of our property and it is ideally located for those who want peace and quite, but be relatively near to all amenities.

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

Wonderful beach villa with heated (optional) pool

  • 5 of 5

Situated yards from a very nice beach, ideal for our family of 4 (inc two young children) this beach front villa was perfect for our needs. The pool and garden area is lovely, we needed the pool heated and remained steady at 29 degrees. Air temp was mid teens so it is a very good heat pump and worth the extra if you are arriving outside of summer months. They also have some great garden furniture in addition to the patio table by the kitchen (which isn’t pictured). Next door’s villa is visible from the garden area, but is screened so it does feel private. The pictures of the interior don’t do it justice, it’s simple but well arranged, with the kitchen and lounge opening out to a view of the pool and sea. There’s AC that also provides heating. The main bedroom is on the ground floor (with pool/sea views) with two further bedrooms on the lower ground floor. One bedroom has an interior window, the other exterior albeit a little subterranean. They both have twin beds and one has en-suite. The location is great, the beach is 50yrds and is sandy with really interesting rocks dotted along. A long sand bank means the waves roll in from some distance out, which makes it very picturesque. It’s a prime spot for surfing and the surf schools. There’s also a rather fabulous boardwalk that you can walk to from the villa, that runs along the beach and across the nature reserve. There’s a very good Italian restaurant (inland) and three beach front restaurants all within 5 mins walk. There’s a big supermarket 10/15mins walk away which is very British, or a smaller one just up the road. Aldi/Lidl are in Albufeira some 15mins away by car. Finally, Manuel was a great host, making us feel very welcome and easy to contact when required. Enjoy!

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!

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.
