About the property

4 bedroom villa with high quality fixtures and fittings. Free wi-fi and air-con

A beautiful Algarve holiday villa offering families and groups of friends a touch of luxury and great value for money. With full air-conditioning, a lovely pool and an easy walk to the beach, you are sure to enjoy your stay here.

Villa Gale Papagaio (Papagaio means “Woodpecker” in Portuguese) is a lovely villa for those wishing to be close to the beach, and restaurants and shops. It's located close to the beach at Galé, one of the nicest beaches on the Algarve, and is just 5km from Albufeira. It's a great holiday villa which mixes bright colours and modern comfortable decor to a high standard.

On the ground floor you are greeted by an impressive, bright entrance hall, with sweeping staircase and balcony above. There’s a spacious, modern and bright lounge with plenty of sofas, TV and a DVD player, and patio doors leading to the garden and pool. There's a fantastic open-plan dining area here too, with wooden dining table and chairs. There is a large well equipped kitchen which is fitted with wooden units and appliances which include a dishwasher and large fridge freezer with door also leading to the pool area. Completing the ground floor is a bright and airy double bedroom with spacious fitted wardrobes, and bathroom.

Upstairs there is the master double bedroom suite with King Size bed and a full en-suite bathroom. Two further bedrooms (one twin and one double) share a house bathroom. All of the bedrooms are air-conditioned.

Outside, is the enclosed private garden with a lovely pool with roman steps and metal steps. There is also a covered terrace with dining table and chairs, comfortable seating area together with the brick built barbecue.

Villa Gale Papagaio is a perfect base for a family, or group of friends, looking for a luxurious, modern holiday villa, whilst being close to restaurants, cafés and bars, and within a short walk of the beach. The big Apolonia supermarket is just a couple of minutes’ walk away, and despite being so close to all amenities, the villa is on a quiet residential estate and feels peaceful. It is a perfect balance.

“Lovely family friendly villa close to restaurants and Galé Beach”

Guestbook comments from the manager

The pictures don't do this villa justice. Its amazing. The outside seats are sturdy and of good quality, compared to cheap white plastic chairs at other villas. The beds are comfortable, unlike other villas where I have had a bad back all holiday. This villa has all the home comforts and luxury touches and feel. The pool is a good size and in full sun all day. The property is immaculately cleaned by the house keepers , who are friendly and professional. The only one thing I would ask for...and its only tiny, is a few plastic glasses/cup for young children, as glass and a pool do not mix. But this is the only thing I could find missing for my needs. I intend to use this villa now until such time as they stop renting it out. Close to the shops and beach, without being so close as to cause you any issues. Perfect. There is a bedroom and bathroom on the ground floor which was ideal for my elderly mother who isn't great on the stairs.

Excellent Villa

  • 5 of 5

Booked a 7 night stay at Villa Gale Papagaio through 'Perfect Villa Escapes'. A fabulous Villa in a fantastic location. Bright, airy, spacious living accommodation with plenty of amenities and well equipped for our group of 7 adults and a baby.

Extremely clean and well presented throughout. Lovely surrounds and pool area. Only a very short walk to the nearest supermarket and excellent beaches.

Overall, a very comfortable and enjoyable stay - would highly recommend.

Wir haben zum ersten mal so Ferien gemacht - heiss

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben zum ersten mal so Ferien gemacht - heisst ein Haus gemietet und uns selbst versorgt. Es war absolut super.

Das Meer, der Strand - ein Traum.

Die Villa Papagaio kann ich jedem empfehlen. Es ist ein tolles, grosses Haus mit Pool zum wohlfühlen. Die Bilder sind absolut so wie es in wirklichkeit ist - kein Fotoshop! Es hat alles bis ins kleinste Deteil geklappt. Sofort wiede! Vielen Dank!
