Things to do

Praia da Gale Oeste:

The Gale Oeste beach is a long stretch of golden sand with a backdrop of soft dunes. A beach restaurant takes care of hunger and thirst, and sun beds are available. One unique offer: special dune buggies are available to help bring disabled visitors to the beach.

Praia da Gale Leste:

Another one of Gale's beaches, the Gale Leste is characterised by rocky outcrops and sheltered coves. This beach is a bit more secluded than the others, making it a good option for those craving some rest and relaxation. There are two beach restaurants here.

Zoomarine:

This marine life park is found in the town of Guia, about six miles from Albufeira and Gale. Seal and dolphin shows are held regularly throughout the year, a 4D cinema shows films pertaining to marine life, and there are a number of swimming pools and snack bars to ensure a full and fun day out.

Albufeira Old Town:

This part of Albufeira is located near the Fisherman's Beach. It is full of cosy cafés and restaurants, and the narrow cobblestone streets and whitewashed buildings exemplify the old style of this region. The Clock Tower, the symbol of Albufeira, is also located here. There are also numerous shops selling local goods as well as everyday necessities.

The Albufeira Strip:

The ever-popular Sao Joao sector of Albufeira is the place to go for those who want to eat, drink, and dance. This hot spot is popular with locals and tourists alike. The strip is lined with all kinds of bars, clubs, and restaurants, making it a fun destination.

Sebastião Church:

The 18th-century church of St. Sebastian in Albufeira is not only a place of worship, but also home to the Museum of Sacred Art. Visitors can see 16th-century stone sculptures, a large collection of paintings, and wooden icons of saints. It is also a nice place to beat the heat on a hot summer day.

We had a two toddlers (2.5yrs and 16months) in tow and as such having a gated pool was a must. The pool is lovely, although unheated. Wasn't a problem for us adults but it did mean it took us a little while to get the kids in, once they were in though, we couldn't get them out. Steps down into the pool at the shallow end, which meant the our girls could climb in and out themselves, then it drops away quite steeply towards the deep end. The villa was spacious, clean & well maintained. Maid and pool cleaning service mid week. We requested a high chair and travel cot, all of which were set up for us on arrival for a small rental cost. There was a heavy glass door that blocked off the stairs which worked as a good safety measure and as such we could relax when the girls were in the living space. Even though there are two bathrooms downstairs with the two twin rooms the only bath is in the ensuite to the double upstairs. The management company Kaiser Properties provided an excellent welcome box of food and drink, (incl beer!) which was invaluable as we arrived early evening on a Sunday when nothing was open. Having two small children that was such a relief. They also reacted very quickly when we locked our keys in the villa, yes we needed a locksmith and it was a Saturday!! So grateful at how speedily they responded. Gale beach is great, too far to walk with two little people but truly only a few mins drive. Definitely get across to Armacao de pera, about 8-10min drive down the coast to the west. Some lovely restaurants there, lots of choice and beach is good. Specifically Praia com tempero on the seafront (not on trip advisor at the time of writing) food here was sensational and the service was excellent, they really made a fuss of us and the girls. We couldn't have been made to feel more welcome. It's all pedestrianised too so the girls ran around to their hearts content after dinner. I highly recommend and we will definitely be back.

The gardens and pool are kept immaculately. The cleaning service was very good. Located well for local beaches and also to travel in the local region if you have a car. Would definitely recommend this for others.
