Beautiful view, clean and plenty of space

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for our family vacation. Enough space for everyone for the days we stayed in and centrally located if we opted to venture out. Everyone loved the pool, even on days when it was windy.

stunning villa with views to die for

  • 5 of 5

we booked Villa lila late so it was all a bit rushed, Florence couldn't have been more helpful and collecting the keys wasn't an issue at all even though it was out of office hours. The Villa is absolutely first class. This is the first time we had been to the Gale area and we weren't disappointed, whilst it is a little spread out there are some fantastic restaurants, Jompra is fantastic and would highly recommend at least one visit there. I would say that you would need a car really unless you are just planning on lazing around the pool. With regard to the pool, it is very deep, 3 meters so those with non swimming children may want to bear that in mind.

All you need for a great family holiday.

Would deffo recommend it.

We had 3 generations there, so ticked all the boxes.

heads up:

I think a car is fairly essential , bearing in mind the distance from Gale beach or Albufeira.

We had the opportunity to have a heated & non-heated pool - as it needed to be heated for the next family. Not sure it's worth it heated. Main issue with the pool is the temperature outside the pool. Being on the side of a hill, the wind can get up & compound any low temperatures. Having said that, it didn't affect us.

Happy holidaying.

Grand design! Absolutely fantastic villa with excellent views 5 star

  • 5 of 5

Great value for money! The villa benefits from fanominal views over the Algarve with sea views. I spent 1 week with my family in villa Lila and throughly enjoyed every minute, the villa has everything you require to enjoy a great holiday. The villa is set in a great location for family and friends who want to enjoy a peaceful holiday. Hire car recommended if you want to get out and about. 5 star villa!! Can't wait to return later on in the year.

Great place, lovely people.

Lækker bolig til rimelig pris.

  • 5 of 5

Skøn bolig i dejlige omgivelser. Vi bestilte opvarmning af pool og det var et godt valg. Selvom det var i oktober nød vi at kunne anvende poolen og spabadet som ligeledes stod klar da vi kom. Alt fungerede perfekt også sen afhentning af nøgle og aflevering i postkassen på vej hjem. Kunne dog godt have ønsket en præcis adresse og ikke kun en kørselsvejledning. Vi havde en adresse men den kunne google maps ikke finde og brugte man linket på homeaways side viste den ikke boligens egentlige placering. Men helt klart en bolig der er anbefalelsesværdig og dejligt at det var i gåafstand fra indkøb og restaurant og kort til seværdigheder.

*Galé/ Vale da Parra,

Approx 4 Km to the west of Albufeira Old Town, are the stunningly beautiful ‘Blue Flag’ beaches of Gale. 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 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 urbanisations 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 cafés 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 4Dimensional cinema which is great fun. There is also a 'Big Wheel' where, once at the top, one can see for miles. Zoomarine 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.
