We had an extremely relaxing week in this house. Everything worked beautifully. Adrian was most helpful and kindly provided a starter pack of basic essentials including a pack of beer and a bottle of wine-most appreciated.

What a fantastic apartment! It is immaculate - with everything you need. Highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 4 night stay at Louise's apartment. There really was everything we needed and some lovely surprises too including ice lolly makers, cool bag and ice blocks and sun umbrella for the beach. Top of the range kitchen equipment including dishwasher and washing machine.The shared garden was lovely for the kids to run around and the pool lovely and clean. We didn't hire a car but found everything we needed in walking distance including a wonderful beach, supermarket and restaurants. Great for anyone, with or without children. Would happily visit again.

We had a really fab family holiday with great trips out & days around the pool. The bungalow was perfect and the pool kept the kids happy for hours. The beaches within walking distance were lovely and the shops also within walking distance offered a wide range of food & drinks. We'll definitely be back!

Secure safe complex , wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We have had a fantastic stay at this bungalow. Everything you need and more.

The complex is very secure , the pool area very clean as is the surrounding gardens . We hired a car for some of our stay and found some amazing little coves right on the doorstep , I could imagine when a little cooler these are easily walkable but not in August heat with two kids in tow! We visited the marina with some lovely restaurants , Albufeira was bustling but again high season , we prefer a more relaxed holiday which is exactly what we had. Lovely restaurants on the doorstep would recommend Dom Dinis we had our best meal here , also ate in as bbq was great and Apolonia supermarket had superb bbq chicken kebabs / steaks etc.

Minimarket 5 min walk , Spar around 10 min .

The air con in the bungalow is the best we've ever had literally on for 10 minutes then it was turned back off as soo efficient. A lovely welcome pack was there upon arrival and Eithne is a wonderful lady and on hand for any problems ! We foolishly locked ourselves out!

Had a fantastic time and Louise was on hand and quick to respond to any queries .

Would recommend the numerous boat trips from the marina to see the caves and dolphins in their natural habitat .Fantastic!

Thank you for a wonderful stay x

Amazing holiday

  • 5 of 5

As a family of 4 we had the most wonderful holiday

What a gorgeous holiday destination.... 1st class 2 bed 2 bathroom apartment, spacious lounge & dining room and a good size kitchen with all appliances in the most beautiful condominium, secure walls and electric gate

There's a lovely swimming pool within a hop skip & jump from the patio doors, a huge well kept grass garden with plenty of room for the kids or adults to run & play games

There's was also ample car parking space for the car we hired

There are some lovely bars & restaurants within walking distance that provide food from typical English to typical Portuguese

There are the most beautiful beaches too in under 1km so an easy walk

Zoo marine, water parks & marina only minutes drive from the apartment

We had a lovely meet & greet from a very friendly Irish lady who showed us into the apartment & provided a welcome pack with all we needed for our first day or so, milk, bread, butter, wine, ham, cheese etc .....

Such a great holiday and we'll definitely be back next year .... can't wait 😀

Thank you Louise

Lovely place to stay, great for families and relaxing. Gale beach near by is beautiful and my children loved it there.

Local cafe and bars near by with resatrauts, people are friendly if you it a little lively take a taxi to albufeira strip.

Pleasant place and safe my little children loved the place and my partner.

If need to relax there is a pool just outside because it can really hot weather.

The bungalow haas two showers 2 large bedrooms and lovely dinning table,

Excellent place to stay and chill , ideal for families.

Car: recommended

The Condominium Baia Village is situated in Gale, a town in central Algarve at 5 kms to the west of Albufeira. This area is much quieter than the city of Albufeira and the Oura area to the east (which is really the party area for 18-30). Gale is a very quiet area surrounded by the best beaches in the Algarve and away from the hustle.

- The apartment is just 10 minutes walk (1 km) from the beaches of Evaristo and Castelo. The 2/3 km from the beaches of San Rafael, Bunny, Lawrence (a sheltered bay, considered one of the best beaches in the Algarve), and the great beaches of Gale and Salgados.

- Its a 5 minutes drive Salgados Golf Course.

- With nearly 30 restaurants, cafés and bars nearby, many of these you can walk to.

- Mini Market 3 minutes walk. Supermarket 2 minutes by car

- Algarve Shopping in Guia 10 minutes by car. The largest shopping centre in the region with several shops, restaurants, supermarket, cinema, bowling

- 10 minutes by car and you will find the water park Zoomarine

The white sand beaches, caves and cliffs, make this a beautiful area to go to the beach, snorkel, or take a boat trip.

Every beach has a bar on it, and for the kids there are lots of rock-pools and sandy areas.
