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.

Although there was only three of us (2 adults and an 18 month old) we love s the space that the villa offered and the outside area was great. Although there was a limited view, it was so peaceful and private which we really appreciated. The bathrooms, bedrooms and kitchen were all lovely, and the twice weekly clean was very welcome. Thank you to all of the staff that attended the villa, they did a great job. We did unfortunately have a power cut the first three nights but as soon as the team at the Principal office found out they rectified the problem within the hour - which was a short in the external lights. The only delay was due to the cyber attack as we didn't realise our messages weren't getting through initially. Florence was so helpful prior to arrival and answered all of our questions. The welcome basket on arrival was very welcome after a 4.30am start to get there. The villa is located perfectly, restaurants in walking distance, a supermarket and beach also in walking distance but we had hired a car which made things much easier with a little one. Gale beach was beautiful and we spent each morning there which our daughter loved and then afternoons out or by the pool. If you hire a car and don't want to spend a small fortune on food, there is an Aldi on site next to makro where we saved a small fortune but got some delicious food. Overall, we would highly recommend this villa, and although we don't usually return to the same place twice we would definitely consider it a small it was so good for a family holiday.
