About Ana

Our holidays in the Algarve have always been great, with wonderful beaches, good climate and excellent food. That is why we bought our holiday home here and continue to keep coming back. We have equipped the house well and hope that you will enjoy it as much as we do.

Ana purchased this house in 1976

Why Ana chose Galé

We have owned this house for many years before the Galé area was developed. We have modernised and improved it over the years and think of it as our home. We spend much of the winter in our house in the Algarve, leaving it for the summer months to return to our houseboat in northern Europe. We hope that you enjoy the house, its wonderful pool and garden as well as its superb location as much as we do

Lovely villa

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 4 adults & 4 children, ages 2-12.

We all had a brilliant time at the villa.

The description was accurate regarding all facilities & the manager was around for any questions or help.

We found a cheaper alternative to the 'Waitrose' style supermarket, which we found by turning right out of the property instead of left.

We visited lots of local restaurants, including going for Piri Piri in local Guia by taxi. Recommended.

We all agreed we would definitely stay there again & would recommend to anyone, including friends.

Sublime villa with everything you need

  • 5 of 5

The property itself was even more impressive than the pictures show, and was well-maintained and perfect for ourselves. With a quiet location, there was supermarkets/pubs/the beach within a 5 minute walking distance, the holiday was ideal for us and had plenty to offer. Not to mention Albufeira being a short taxi ride away. We were also very happy with the owner, and the trust given to us, as for 8 teenage lads on holiday I'm sure many owners would be checking on the accommodation every 5 minutes and overlooking us.

I would 100% recommend this villa to anyone, and will be looking to go again in the near future.

Owner's Response: We opened an exception and allowed these 8 young men to stay at the house. Past experience makes us very wary of accepting bookings of single sex groups. However they treated the property with respect and were no trouble at all. I am very pleased that they all enjoyed their stay at the house and would like to return.

Collins/Cole Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5

This was our third trip to Gale and 2nd stay at Casa Risonho. This villa certainly meets all our expectations and more. We were a family of 7 - 4 adults (Nanny, Grandad, Mum & Dad) and 3 boys, 10, 8 and 6. The villa is extremely spacious and the grounds are extensive. The best part for the boys (and the grown ups) was the heated pool - it was used from first thing in morning to last thing at night. It is convenient for local supermarket shopping and nice restaurants to eat within walking distance. The beach is also walking distance. The Villa Manager is very helpful and easily contactable if you need advice. Would definitely recommend this villa for a lovely family holiday. We hope to be visiting again soon...

Fantastic stay at Casa Risonho

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic time our family had at Casa Risonho, Gale Algarve. We have a very mixed group of ages ranging from 20 to 86, and 2 people with disabilities , the villa was perfect for everyone a ground floor bedroom with walk in shower ideal for our party with disabilities. Plenty of outside seating areas to make the most of the sun at all times of day and a brilliant lounge to watch the World Cup !! The location of the villa is very quiet but in walking and wheelchair distance from the beach a great bar and some excellent restaurants, there are 3 local supermarkets and if you have a car then Aldi and lidl are a short drive away. The main problem with our stay was that it was only for a week and next time we will be booking 2 weeks , we would defiantly recommend the Casa Risonho .

The nearest beach is the long and sandy Gale Beach, which stretches along to the next resort along the coast. It is a three minute walk to this lovely beach, where there are several beach bars to enjoy a sundowner! There are also several coves and smaller beaches in the area, many of which have a bar for drinks and snacks although some are quite secluded.


The nearest airport it Faro International Airport approx 40km. The Albufeira train station is approx 10km. The nearest bus station (Albufeira) is approx 8km.


Albufeira is 7km. Guia is 5km. Zoomarine is 6km. Apart from the wealth of water sports facilities available on Gale Beach, there are various excellent boat trips, Dophin trips as well as beach barbecue trips all available from the Albufeira Marina, just a 5 minute drive away. There are also water parks, safari trips, sailing and of course the many famous golf courses for which the Algarve is famous. Hoseriding is also available with beach rides.

Further Details:

There are several excellent restaurants in the area, including the 2 Michelin star restaurant at Vila Joya or the great São Domingos family run restaurant just a 10 minute stroll away. Cafés and restaurants are easily reached on foot from Casa Risonho.
