About the property

Villa in Gale Beach, Albufeira, Central Algarve, Portugal - Peaceful Location, 50 Mtrs. From The Beach

'Ventos do Mar-2' This luxurious villa, recently refurbished, has been specially adapted, so that the part available for rental (240 sq.mts. /2580 sq.ft) ensures privacy for our guests in relation to Ventos do Mar-1 (P5501) and exclusive use of their own swimming pool. The lovely sun terrace on the first floor has magnificent sea and beach views. Situated 50 mtrs. from one of the Algarve's most beautiful beach. It is close to some of the best beaches on this part of the Algarve coast such as, Salgados, Coelha, S.Lourenco, S.Rafael. There are several good restaurants and a few bars within an easy walk of our property. Ideally located for those who want peace and quiet, but also be relatively near to all amenities.

Just returned home after a stay at this beautiful villa. I highly recommend it! Manuel and his wife Jose are the nicest people you could wish to meet, they were so kind and helpful.

The villa is gorgeous, plenty of room, three lovely ensuite bedrooms, with everything you need. It was well maintained and thoroughly clean throughout. Outside there is a great pool, which can be heated upon request. The roof terrace was spectacular, with stunning views out to the ocean. Watching the sunset with a glass of wine was perfect.

There a several restaurants five minutes walk away. We particularly liked the Italian, Bellavita. There is also a small shop five minutes walk away, with a bigger supermarket only ten minutes walk away. Albuferia is only a short car journey away, which we visited one evening for some shopping and dinner.

The villa is on the beach, the location was perfect. My mum, sister and I had a lovely relaxing time and we were sad to leave.

Thank you so much Mauel! x

Fantastic Property

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic location and the owner went out of his way to make us feel welcome. He met us at a predetermined site, took us to the residence and provided many suggestions relating to great restaurants and places to visit. The property was extremely clean and the grounds were manicured to perfection. The residence had all the necessary amenities and the view from the top deck was fantastic. All in all a very pleasant experience and great vacation thanks to Manuel

We were lucky enough to stay in this luxury villa 6th August 2016 for a week. Manuel did everything to make our stay perfect, from the much

appreciated welcome pack, to allowing us to use the equally beautiful villa with amazing pool next door on our last day, as we had a late flight.

The villa was immaculate and equipped with everything you could need. It was spotlessly clean and the cleaning team return mid week

to ensure it stays that way.

The upstairs terrace with sea views is magnificent and perfect for watching the sun go down, before taking an evening stroll to one of

the bars or restaurants.

With the beach being literally 60 seconds walk away, it's perfect for an early morning stroll, midday swim or an evening picnic with prosecco.

All in all we had an amazing week with our 3 grown up daughters and will definitely be returning!

Thank you so much Manuel!

Simply superb

  • 5 of 5

Stayed recently a group of 3 couples for 10 nights and only regret is that it wasn't for longer! This villa is stunning, spacious and very well appointed. Lots of room for everyone, it's comfortable and stylish. Everything you need is in this villa and nothing is too much trouble for the owner Manuel who welcomed us on the first day, took us to the supermarket and a little drive around to.orientate us to the area and facilities. When we had a small problem he came immediately to address this. He also,waved us off at the end of our trip, such a lovely man. The location is to die for

Its literally a stones throw from the beautiful beach. The restaurants on the beach are good and very reasonable and Bellavita at the end of the road is fabulous with really friendly helpful staff. We would definitely stay here again as it is all that is said in the description and so much more.

We have just returned home from a fantastic stay in this amazing villa, we were greeted by the owner Manuel who is a true gentleman, he made us feel very special and nothing was too much trouble , it was really re assuring to know he is only a phone call away should you need him, the villa is in a fantastic location , so close to the beach and restaurants , the italian restauarant - Bella Vita is first class.The villa, Pool area are very child friendly , there is plenty of room in and around the villa ,very secure with automated gate for the car and a pedestrian gate for strolling off to the beach, its even got a balcony area with brilliant sea views and excellent seating to enjoy a drink and all day sunshine.

We were very impressed with the large barbecue , visit the local super market ,large range of known brands - fantastic kebabs , charcoal etc , we dined on the outside table had a great time.

In summary an excellent villa , managed by Manuel , who is so genuinely helpful, in a great location,

Activity and Interests


To the west of Albufeira is a tranquil area of low hills, fertile plains and wonderful beaches from intimate coves to the glorious sandy expanse of Praia da Gale.


Faro airport is about a 40 minutes drive. Car hire is not essential, but 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.


Guia is a wonderful little village with narrow streets, traditional cottages and a famous selection of chicken piri-piri restaurants. Here you can also find a post office/paper shop, small supermarket, several banks and a pharmacy.

Further Details:

Nearby is a Zoomarine where not only children but also adults can enjoy a full day out. Two water parks and horse riding centre not far away. There is also a large shopping centre with a good selection of shops, medical clinic, cinema, restaurants.
