Never be far from the action with holiday accommodation in Gale.

The quiet residential area of Gale is located on the Algarve coast. It is home to three gorgeous beaches and a collection of restaurants, bars, and shops.

HomeAway has got a number of apartments in Gale, including Gale beach apartments and those with WI-FI. Secluded villas in Gale with private pools are also just a click away.

Gale is less than 1.5 miles from the Albufeira Old Town and Marina. These two spots are must-see sites: the Old Town with its cobbled streets and the brightly coloured marina. HomeAway has also got affordable villas and apartments in this area. HomeAway also offers a selection of comfortable rental accommodations in Faro, and travellers hoping to find a place to stay further west along the Algarve coast should look no further than the rental houses and apartments in Carvoeiro.

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.

Travel to Gale

Gale is located approximately 31 miles from Faro International Airport (FAO). To reach Gale, hiring a car is a popular option.

Quiet Location, spacious villa, pool friendly.

4 of 5
Villa in a quiet secure and private location, lawned garden around the property, well maintained, easy access pool. Very close to some very good restaurants and local shop. The villa is very spacious with modern style kitchen with all facilities, spacious lounge and dining room, very good Wi-Fi. Upstairs is a spacious double room ensuite, with walk in shower, walk in wardrobe and safe. Lovely balcony with sun beds, and its own private lounge area. Downstairs has two twin bedrooms, both a good size, wardrobe space, which share a bathroom and separate toilet, more suitable for family. Tony and Jackie were there to greet us and show us around, they were both very friendly and helpful during our stay, personal service their priority. They had laid on a handsome Food Welcome Pack which was so useful as on a Sunday the shop was closed, very much appreciated. The only downside which did spoil our stay, was a very noisy pool pump which spoilt sunbathing, and kept switching on at night which hindered sleeping. Eventually turned off and replaced, but this didn't improve. The beds were very firm, and unfortunately for us, for the majority of the week it was very windy at night, consequently the window shutters and frames rattled a lot. It should be noted that nearby they have started working on a building project so a lot of drilling and bagging went on during the weekdays. Lots of lovely walks and beaches nearby, a car is useful as the supermarket is a good walk away. Ideal family villa.
