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

Amazingly beautiful villa! The loveliest owners we have met (and we always rent villas)

5 of 5
We arrived earlier than the “check in” time, however Marie went over and beyond to ensure that the villa was ready for our arrival. She helped to move a camp bed upstairs for our eldest....we wanted our 3 children to sleep in the same room. Villa was very clean, spacious and secure. There were more than enough kitchen/dining utensils and crockery. Adequate space in the fridge/freezer. Apolonia supermarket is literally next door.....no issues with any noise early in the morning. Very convenient and had everything we needed. We worked out that if we got a taxi to the local Lidl/Aldi then the cost would be the same. Yes it is more expensive, but it wasn’t extortionate. On arrival Marie explained where the beach was....which was literally a 5 minute walk away (for 2 adults and 3 children under 8). We had an issue with the internet, but this was dealt with by jochen asap and internet was restored. Pool area was very clean. The pool is not heated, so unfortunately the kids weren’t too keen to get in as it was very cold....but this was due to going at the end of October. We are looking to come back in Summer as the villa is perfect and the pool will be too. This villa is amazing (this is the 3rd villa we have stayed in this year and we have been renting villas for 6 years). Cab to Albufeira old town was easy to order and took us 10 mins to get there....approx 15 euros. We have stayed in many many villas and this is by far the best for comfort, cleanliness and location. Thank you Marie and Jochen for allowing us to stay here...we will be back The Hardings (21/10/17-28/10/17) xxx

Wonderful location!

5 of 5
This villa is situated in an amazing location in the lovely town of Gale. The long sandy beach is simply a stones throw away and there are several excellent restaurants and a supermarket Apolonia (a little pricey) within easy walking distance. Algarve Shopping Centre is only a 10 minute drive away providing a huge range of shops, a food court and a much more reasonably priced large supermarket. The villa itself has everything you need for a wonderful holiday. The pool was great and it’s well worth paying extra for pool heating as we were able to use it every day during our stay even on the overcast days. WiFi was good. Manuel the owner was excellent from first contact with him about the booking until the day we left. He met us in nearby Guia and took us to the villa. He visited several times during our stay to make sure all was ok but was never intrusive. This is a great villa in a beautiful part of the Algarve that we will definitely return to. Thank you Manuel for all your help!
