Well what can I say, after years of going all inclusive and spending thousands on holidays for my kids to never use kids club and eat the same thing for 2 weeks (pizza & chips) we booked this apartment as a cheap holiday to take the kids as we had just been to Vegas in June so to keep cost down we thought it was the best option so we had the facilities to make all our food ourselves, well it as opened up my eyes now and this is the way forward for us as a family, we have had the best time and really didn't want to come home! So from booking last year Louise as been very helpful in any questions I had and EIthien the lady who met us there was great to, she got us a lovely welcome pack for when we arrived... Water, lager, wine, bread, cheese, ham , marg so after a long day travelling and not getting there till 10 at night this was a god send for us so thankyou. She went through everything we needed to know! Now for the apartment.... It really is like home from home, as everything to cook all your meals, appliances all easy to use, we had a car and done all our shopping at lidl which is a 10 min drive but there is a couple of shops in walking distance, spar, oceano. Lovely spacious apartment, big Samsung tv, Xbox and you can watch all the latest movies, 2 bathrooms 2 bedrooms all with plenty of cupboard space, all towels supplied including pool towels. We drove to the beaches, gale, evaristo , castello, cohela and Sao rafael all quite different glad we seen them all but are all within walking distance. I really could go on about this place, best holiday for us we are going Florida next year but we will be definatly be booking again for the year after!
we arrived at the bungalow and was amazed by everything it was so well equipped and the reception we got was very plesant and we had such a amazing time im going back in may 2016
Just come back from our holiday in the Algarve. Louise sent us good directions in advance and we were shown around on arrival by Eithen. WiFi kept my teenager 'connected' and while the TV could only get local stations we could access FilmOn via a computer/WiFi to get the UK TV if we wanted. We didn't need the air conditioning much as we had a lovely breeze through the apartment. Early season still so we had the pool pretty much to ourselves as per the photo!
Car useful to explore the area - Silves, Vilamoura, Lagos etc. We found our most local beach Castelo one of the best, which was a bonus, though I was lazy and drove (about a 3min drive!) rather than walked.
Local Restaurants good, especially O Amigo, a Tapas Restaurant at the top of the road. Thanks Louise, we booked this at the very last minute but you ensured everything went really smoothly, even a welcome pack of tea/milk etc on arrival, perfect.
We have been to the Algarve numerous times and stayed in numerous locations, ie the strip, the Old Town and Gale. This is a fantastic Appartment with a beautiful surroundings and idea location near a local supermarket, bars and restaurants.
The marina is about a 30mins walk and with an 11yr old and a 6yr old this was not too much and again there is some bars and restaurnts on the way. We went on a half day cruise and also a fishing trip from the Marina and our 6yr old caught the most fish including an octopus.
The Appartment had everything you needed and was a lovely modern Appartment, it was so nice to wake up in the morning and open the patio doors looking right onto the pool. The kitchen also has a lovely view of the gardens, which may I add are fantastically maintained and the gardener works from first thing in the morning till about 6pm non stop.
The kids loved having a pool right outside the door, which I felt safe being able to sit on the patio area and watch them. The other Appartment owners and children are so friendly and welcoming. I was nice to relax and sometimes just have a day by the pool without fighting for a sun bed and scared of losing sight of the kids.
One last thing Louise and Andy the owner were also very helpful from start to finish we can't wait to go back later this year.

Really lovely property and area. Plenty to do if wanted and most
relaxing holiday that we have had in some time. Would go back
without a doubt. the property was well equipped, very clean and
is disabled friendly.
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.
