Beautiful villa in a quiet area near the beach

  • 5 of 5

This villa is awesome. Really spacious! There was only 4 of us, but it would be suitable for 2 families easily! There are 2 separate balconies, one on the first floor and then one on the top to give you views of the sea.

The pool is great, a good mix of shallow and deep! The kitchen was so easy to use, it had everything you needed to prepare food in. We would definitely consider staying here again!

Superb Villa

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't fault the villa in any way all the bedrooms were large with en-suites. The kitchen was well equipped everything you would require should you wish to eat in. A car would be an advantage, although within easy walking distance there are restaurants and small supermarkets. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and wouldn't hesitate to return.

Lovely villa with homely feel!

  • 4 of 5

We have had a lovely time at this spacious, well decorated villa which has a real homely feel to it. All commodities were well provided for.

The villa was well serviced and supported by the agency and staff.

Definitely would recommend to people looking for a quiet location. It is a reasonable walking distance to local beaches and restaurants. For shopping and town related activities a car is advisable.

Fantastic villa in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I stayed at Vila Rosal for an 8 night last minute booking and loved every second of our stay! What a beautiful villa - the pictures really doesn't do it justice. We found it much bigger than it looks in the pictures with plenty of outdoor space - including a roof terrace with panoramic sea views, a terrace from the first floor bedrooms and the wonderful garden/pool area. We didn't want to leave!

The location is beautiful. We didn't have a car and didn't find this an issue - it was a pleasant walk into Albufeira and is very close to many lovely beaches - although we found ourselves spending much more time in the pool than the sea!

Customer service was great. Florence went out of her way to welcome us and helped make our check-out process easier as we didn't have a car - thanks! Will definitely be recommending to friends & family visiting the Algarve.

Sao Rafael is located in a privileged area with a beautiful sandy beach followed by several attractive beach wish can be reach easily by foot and car. Within 45 minutes drive from FARO airport this area is central and has got a lot to offer, There are around 30 Amazing Golf courses in the Algarve, Salgados course is about 5 minutes drive. Other Activities as Zoomarine, Water parks, Boat Trips, Walking and mush more are within short distance.

There is within walking distance a good selection of Restaurants and Bars.

If you don t want to drive you can take the BUS to Albufeira or to the Galé Beach.

If you wish to go to the Water parks or excursions just visit or contact our manager you can get can get advise and buy your tickets with discounts .

Galé/ Vale da Parra,

Approx 4 Km to the west of Albufeira Old Town , is the stunningly beautiful ‘Blue Flag’ beaches of Galé pronounced Gaar-lay). The beach is around 5km long with clean golden sand. Therefore even in the height of summer one can find plenty of space to sunbathe. The beach is made up of soft sand and is safe for children. It has all the usual water sports one could expect in the summer time. However from November to March it is very quiet and you can walk west, along the Ocean edge, to Armação de Pêra. This walk is about 5 Km long passing soft sand dunes with the Nature reserve of Salgados on your right. As you arrive into Armação de Pêra you will see many quite quaint beach bars along with many fishermen’s boats.

Turning left (east) on Gale beach, the scenery changes entirely, with small cliffs and rock formations where you will regularly see anglers fishing for their evening meal. The cliffs form many intimate coves that give a safe and natural wind break, where children can play in the crashing waves or explore the rock pools. From here it is possible to clamber over the rock and head east to as far as São Rafael beach (recently voted one of the top ten beaches in Europe), passing São Lourenço, Evaristo,–Castelo and Coelha beaches, each with their own beach restaurants and character and absolutely stunning. In between these beaches there are many small sandy coves, where you can sit for hours undisturbed. Also the cliff walks between these beaches makes you feel you are on some desert island with lots of species of natural flower and fauna.

To the North of Galé (approx) 2km is the small and pleasant village of Vale da Parra with its restaurants and bars.

Guia village

Guia has its own very special character. It has a good mix of Portuguese, ex pats & tourists . It is also the home of Chicken Piri-Piri, which is absolutely delicious! There are many Chicken Piri-Piri restaurants as well as others that serve both Portuguese and international cuisine. There are also bars, banks, chemist, post office, fruit and veg. market, bakery and mini market. The small urbanisation's of Barrancos and Quinta dos Alamos are on the edge of the village and only a short walk to the centre.

From Guia it is only a few minutes drive to the Algarve Shopping Centre. Here you will find many shops including a very large supermarket. There are also many cafes and restaurants plus a cinema. So plenty to do!

A five minute drive to the west of Guia is the very popular Zoomarine. This is simply a must for all the family as it has so much to offer. It has a fantastic 4 dimensional cinema which is great fun. There is also a 'Big Wheel' where, once at the top, one can see for miles. Zoo marine also boasts an excellent and educational underwater wildlife tour with all sorts of strange creatures swimming around. The real star attraction though, and the real highlight of your visit, will be the highly entertaining 'Dolphin show'. The Dolphins, which are very well looked after, do all sorts of clever tricks, including leaping many meters out of the water and into the air. All the family, especially the kids will love this!

There are also several high quality water parks within a short drive from the Village.

Albufeira Old Town,

About 10 minutes away by car to the East of Vale da Parra is the Old town of Albufeira. It is, and has been for many years, a favourite destination of the British and the Irish. Although there have been many changes over the years since I first arrived, the 'Old Town still has that magical feel to it. Sitting in a bar or restaurant in the square with a glass of wine or beer in hand listening to the street entertainment is absolutely fantastic.

From the square, it is a very leisurely stroll through the cobbled streets to 'Fishermans Beach'. Sadly, most of the fishermen have now moved to a new site nearer to the modern Albufeira Marina. However, there is an absolutely fantastic golden sandy beach that the kids will love. Also there is several super restaurants serving a range of various cuisine. These restaurants are beautifully shielded from the wind, especially in the winter, and are a real sun trap.
