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 particularly loved the beautiful ceiling in the lounge area. Lovely sized pool which we had heated for the younger members of our party. Felt very secure in the gated complex. There were 9 of us and plenty of space. The older teenagers enjoyed a couple of nights in Albuferia, a short cab ride away. Lovely local restaurants within walking distance as were the lovely beaches. Fantastic views on our walks. Manfred and Tracy were always on hand with any queries and extremely helpful. Will definitely be booking again for next year.

Keys collection and drop off were great and very easy. The Villa had plenty of space and was great to stay in with 6 adults and 1 child. The only down side was the safe did not work and the TV did not have many British channels therefore could not watch Wimbledon. I would have rated this property 5 stars if these 2 things were fixed. We would definitely book to stay at this Villa again as we like this area as it is only 10 minutes(by car) to The shops and busy Albuferia.
