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 villa was everything we expected and more. Spacious, especially if you bag the top bedroom with two balconies, but every room has a terrace and some nice nooks and crannies to escape with a good book. The wendy house was a hit with my 2 year old and he spent most of the day in there, handy when the sun was so hot. The indian restaurant at the top of the road is first class, non greasy and loads of choice! Beautiful beaches within 15 minute walk with beach bars and lovely soft sand! What more could you ask for. Many Thanks for an excellent holiday! C & Family

Travelling with a toddler we had lots of questions! The villa itself is perfectly located in Gale, 2 mins walk from an amazingly stocked supermarket and 5 mins walk to the stunning Gale beach. What a beautiful villa! It has 4 bedrooms all ensuite and the villa is furnished to a first class standard throughout. The pool is excellent (we chose to have it heated due to having a young child) and plenty of seating/sun lounger space around the pool and garden area. We used the BBQ most nights with fantastic meats from the supermarket. With views of the sea and sunset a great way to spend the evening. Thanks Elsa for providing a great holiday, we all loved it and will be back! Richard Kent and family (July 8-15 2016).

The location is excellent near a spar supermarket and near the Jompra restaurant which just happens to be our favourite. The villa is lovely with everything you need, four good sized bedrooms and great outdoor space with the pool being very big. I can not wait to come back.
