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.

The flat was well equipped, beautifully clean and provided plenty of room for the two of us during a long stay. The owner was always responsible and available.

Wir waren als Familie mit 5 Kinder (8-18 Jahre), Eltern, Bruder & Partner da und alle hatten ein passendes Zimmer! Wir hatten Anfangs Oktober die Poolheizung dazu gemietet, die Kinder waren somit stundenlang im Wasser! 2x die Woche kam die Putzfrau und ging durch die Bade/Schlafzimmer, saugen etc. Auch der Poolmann war zugange. Florence und Ihr Team war sehr hilfreich, Buchung, Depot alles einwandfrei geklappt. Haus liegt in Gehnähe von Restaurants, der Spar liegt ca. 5 min weg (hoch dann ewas länger). Sehr empfehlenswert, wir möchten wiederkommen!

They had arranged transfers to and from the airport so, the moment we arrived in Portugal we had nothing to worry about. Tony and Jackie met us at the villa where they had a welcome pack waiting for us (basics for the fridge etc) along with a very nice floral arrangement and a bottle of champers.... for our honeymoon. The villa itself is brilliant. Everything anyone could ask for is there, the setting is perfect and even though it was late October into November when we stayed we still made use of the pool most days. Without question I would highly recommend anyone looking for a relaxed holiday in a pleasant area and wanting to stay in a villa then look no further than Casa Rebecca.. !00% Amazing Honeymooners From Brighouse, West Yorkshire
