Pool / Spa
Good size property, convenient location
First time we had stayed in a communal style villa, ample parking to the rear, locked outside door and stairs for entry. Villa was spacious with three good sized Bathrooms - furniture in one needed minor attention. Balconies overlooking the pool, although a little off putting when eating in full view of those in the pool. TV in Lounge with an Amazon stick (although appeared not to be working). Kitchen was adequate with washing machine, dishwasher, etc. Full size Cooker although on 3 rings (due to a knob missing) and limited cooking capacity due to only 2 trays - although there is a new electric BBQ and a rather rusty gas one that needs to be disposed of. Within a mile of the main road with easy access to all the Algarve. The mentioned Supermarket appeared to have closed down, but there was another one within a 10 minute walk - although a little pricey. Lidl and Aldi have large stores within a 10 minute drive on the outskirts of Albufeira. Beach was a 15-20 minute walk, not quite the 600m promised! We had hired a car so had no problems getting around, no idea of what the bus services were like - but there were restaurants/cafes within walking distance. Collection of keys at night was well organised from local office and directions provided were excellent. Did report minor issues to the Agent, but felt they weren't really interested - although it did say in the welcome folder to let them know if you had any problems so they could be sorted during your stay. Overall a good holiday.
First visit to Portugal
Great place accommodation very good and area very good to explore Portugal
A real home from home with plenty of space
This was exactly what we wanted, plenty of space and very well equipped. A party of 4 adults and a three year old we did not find the walk round to the pool a problem it is hardly any distance and in actual fact it was reassuring to know that our granddaughter could not directly access the pool. If you are looking for an ultra modern, minimalist property then this probably isn't for you. This is a much loved 'home from home' clean and comfortable and, just like most homes, the odd minor thing needing updating but nothing that will affect your stay. Very well situated and close to many attractions and walking distance of the beach and supermarket.
If there was one 'downside' it was that there is only one key for the whole party which makes it difficult if you wish to do different things. Maybe, if it is not possible to provide additional sets of keys then installing a key safe may be of benefit.
Other than that small thing everything was provided for a much needed holiday - Thank you!
Beautiful property, spacious, well designed, with plenty of balcony space. A real home from home.
Gale is a lovely location, away from the bustle of busier towns but perfectly located just a few hundred metres from a number of sandy beaches and within just a few kilometres of Albuferia and the A22 motorway. Looking forward to return again soon.
THE BEST YET!
Villa was exceptional .Very well equipped. Convenient location -near to beaches and large supermarket. Shared pool was well maintained. The only downside we found was that the BBQ was old and not very efficient. Gale is a smaller and a lot less busy resort than Albufeira which is a bus ride away or just 8 euros by taxis. The booking process was hassle free and every thing was spot on, thanks to the Homeaway team. Will definitely book with them again.

Perfect family holiday , apartment size is superb and everything clean and tidy . Pool family friendly and really clean
The Algarve, located in the south of Portugal, offers ideal features for a wonderful holiday: practically year-round sunshine, golden sandy beaches with bars/restaurants, some of Europe’s best golf courses (20+), 'Monchique' mountain, romantic hidden towns, good value restaurants. Albufeira town is 4kms, around 5 min drive. The old town is very interesting with narrow cobbled streets and old fisherman houses and then there are the numerous music bars and street entertainers together with regular free shows in the main square in the summer season. Algarve Shopping, the biggest shopping centre in the region with several shops, restaurants, hypermarket (open Mon-Sun until 12:00 pm) is at Guia, a small town, famous for many good value restaurants, specialising in Chicken 'Piri-Piri', only 5 min drive. By the Apartment there a nice café with lovely cakes and the nearest Restaurants are just a few minutes walk. It´s 600 metres walking distance to the Blue flag beaches.
