Villa in Gale, Albufeira area, Central Algarve, Portugal - Minutes Walking To Beach, Shopping And Restaurants

Perfectly located just 300m from the beach, Villa Rabelho is a detached villa nestled in the most sought after area of the Algarve. With large private heated pool in a quiet residential area just minutes from bars, shops and restaurants. The villa is spread over 4 floors and is modern and spacious and is finished to a high standard (renovated in 2013/2014 with new furniture and kitchen). The large private pool is inviting, surrounded by comfortable sun loungers and other seating so you may enjoy the sunshine in a peaceful setting. There is also a shaded children's play area and an outside (covered) kitchen and BBQ for alfresco dining.

About Shauna Miller

My husband and I moved to the Algarve in 2013 after years of working towards our dreams. So far, so good!! We have 2 small children who are settling into school well and we are all learning Portuguese. I am a teacher and Gary owns a hospitality company that can help with airport transfers and tickets to local attractions. We have visited the Algarve for years and stayed in an array of villas. We know how important it is for the place to be modern, clean and have a variety of facilities. Our intention is to offer you the very best experience of the Algarve that we can so you love it as much as we do! The Algarve is a special place where you can fully relax.

Shauna Miller purchased this villa in 2013

Why Shauna Miller chose Albufeira

Gale is our favourite beach in the Algarve so when we discovered this beautiful villa within walking distance of Gale beach we moved fast and bought it! Gale has wonderful restaurants and a stunning dramatic coastline. Not only this but it is right in the middle of the Algarve, with great access to Algarve Shopping, Zoo Marine, Albuferia Marina and Old Town and its easy to see the rest of the Algarve. The villa has an amazing character and is very spacious. We could see a variety of different people enjoying all it has to offer (including plenty of our friends and family!) We live a short drive away and can therefore be available if needed for any reason.

What makes this villa unique

We believe the pool is wonderful and the space inside and outside the villa. In addition, the location is fantastic. Across the road from a major supermarket and walking distance to al amenities including bars and restaurants. There are several beaches within walking distance which means you don't necessarily need a car (quite rare for a villa). We also own www.algarveholidayfun.com and can help you organise your trip fully from airport transfers to discounted tickets for zoomarine and water parcs to golf packages, horse riding and chartering your own boat are among 200 companies we deal with.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed here in June 14.

The villa was lovely, clean and well equipped and lived up to its pictures.

As a large extended family the villa was able to provide everything needed for a comfortable stay.

The owners were very helpful throughout the booking process and flexible with

arrival and departure times as the bookings would allow.They were also very

helpful while we were there , responding to all our queries and providing cots/towels etc.

This is an ideal base for a holiday with good beaches and a supermarket within easy walking distance.The location is quiet, ideal for families.But only a short taxi ride (under 9 euros) or bus to the town.The open top tour bus stops nearby.

As a group of 11 adults (2 families) we stayed at villa Rabelho during the first week of September. We were all really impressed by how spacious the villa was, which allowed for privacy, if required. The villa is also very well equipped, including beach towels! The swimming pool is a really good size and just a great place to spend lazy days in the sun. The villa is well placed for the fabulous beach and the supermarkets. Albufeira is just a short taxi ride away and well worth the journey, with a great selection of restaurants,bars and shops. The villa was perfect for our large group and we would most definitely go back and also recommend it to others. Perfect!

I stayed at Villa Rabelho with a family group of 12, from ages 7months to senior grandparents. Villa Rabelho was perfect it catered for all needs. The layout is great, bedrooms over 4 floors, it meant my parents did not have to negotiate any stairs to thier bedroom so easily accessible . Myself and partner stayed in the top bedroom which had a small bedroom off it so brilliant for small children, it had a lovely large terrace with amazing views, totally secure for little ones. We had everything we needed for the baby, travel cot and highchair included, and a toy room kept little ones occupied when the afternoon sun was too much for them.

The house was extremely clean, great pool and outside areas, and plenty of room if you wanted ot find a quiet spot, it really was a pleasure to stay here.

In terms of location , it is great if you are looking for a quiet place to stay, no noise at night to disturb you, a few minutes walk from the beach and a handful of bars within walking distance, albeit these are widely spread.

Shauna the owner was lovely and nearby should we of needed anything, all in all we had a lovely time at Villa Rabelho, it's a great place to stay, great value for money
