Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Melides - Casa Praia da Galé

High quality beds/linen/pillows and other amenities

Off the beaten path, merely 130 km south of Lisbon and with easy access to the highway: Praia da Gale means endless white sand beaches fringed by the Atlantic Ocean on one side and majestic cliffs on the other. A small staircase tugged away in the cliffs leads from the quiet Gale residences of approximately 80 private holiday and summer homes down to the beach offering stunning views of the seemingly endless coastline. Just a 10 min climb and walk from the beach, right before the edge of the pine forest, awaits you the Casa 88, the perfect home for a holiday filled with tranquil beach walks, strolls through the forest and ocean adventure, tastes of local flair and traditional cuisine in the nearby villages as well as endless room for personal discoveries of the Alentejo. Casa 88 offers 3 spacious bedrooms sleeping up to 6 people, 3 bathrooms, a living room with dining area and an open kitchen, terrace and front and back gardens.

Férias na casa da praia da Galé

  • 5 of 5

A nossa estada foi maravilhosa. A casa é muito confortável e está situada num local muito calmo e repousante.Gostámos de estar perto das bonitas praias da costa alentejana e de podermos observar todos os dias o espectacular pôr de sol.

Devo ainda dizer que a casa é muito aconchegante em especial os quartos e a sala não esquecendo o lindo jardim que é na verdade inspirador.

Penso recomendá-la aos meus familiares e amigos.

Idealer Geheimtipp fuer Paare und Singles

  • 5 of 5

Teils allein, teils mit meinem Freund habe ich Ende Maerz eine Woche an der Kueste Gales im Casa 88 verbracht.

Wir suchten ein Ausflugsziel, um so richtig zu entspannen, eine Pause vom sehr arbeitsreichen Alltag, jedoch mit Moeglichkeiten fuer Abenteuer, Ausarbeitung, viel Natur, gutem Essen, gutem Wein, idealerweise am Ozean, da wir beide aus der Mitte Deutschlands kommen.

Die Reise began allein. Angekommen auf dem Flughafen in Lissabon, nahm ich mein Mietauto in Empfang und auf gings. Zur Autobahn A2 (gen Sueden) zu finden war ein leichtes und die ca 140 km nach Melides / Gale Beach eine angenehme Fahrt. Man fuehlt sich wie auf der Autobahn, nur dass man die Geschwindigkeitsbegrenzung beachten sollte und Maut bezahlt. Der ca 20 km lange Teil von der A2 Abfahrt Richtung Melides bis Gale ist landschaftlich sehr huebsch und man wird gut auf die laendliche Atmosphaere eingestimmt. Angekommen in Gale wusste ich sofort, das Plaetzchen findet nicht jeder und es hat tatsaechlich was ganz besonderes. Die Steilkueste ist atemberaubend und ideal fuer ausgedehnte Spazierganege, zum Schwimmen, surfen etc - allein als auch gemeinsam. Da ich selbst gern meinen morgendlichen Laeufen froehne, hab ich den Pinienwald gleich hinter dem Haus auch etwas naeher ergruenden koennen und festgestellt, das er neben sehr gutem Terrain zum Laufen sich auch als eine Superquelle fuer Kaminholz eignet. Denn bei einem Feuer im Kamin wird es abends urgemuetlich.

Ausserdem hab ich als idealen Snack die hausgemacheten Suppen entdeckt, die es in jedem Restaurant und auch nebenan auf dem Campingplatz gibt – super lecker und immer frisch. Gemeinsam haben wir dann auch die Restaurants der Umgebung erkundet. Die traditionellen Fischgerichte sind durchweg lecker und die Hausweine / Weine der Region. Und das Brot ist ein Gedicht…mit oder ohne dem Kaese oder den Oliven, welche als Vorspeise gereicht werden.

Natuerlich wollten wir unsre neugewonnene Lust auf die protugiesische Kueche mal selbst ausprobieren; so haben wir dank der Hilfe unsrer Vermieterin ein leckres Rezept und frischen Fisch vom Markt erhalten und einen gebackenen Fisch a la Portuguese zubereitet in unsrer Casa 88. Fuer uns die perfekte Abrundung einer gelungenen Woche Abenteuer und Seele-baumeln-lassen in Gale Beach, dem gut-gehueteten Geheimtipp.

Style space! Stunning beach 'n' sea, magical food!

  • 5 of 5

Classic space. Amazing comfort. All the mod-cons you need... Lovely clean and well maintained house with lots of style... Five minutes walk to the beach. Great for a large group - we had 4 adults and 3 kids in the one house... Summer camp nearby with fun things to do and great Portugese food... Lots of restaurants dotted around the area - seafood galore...!! A day of golf in the Algarve - a night out in Lisbon and the rest of the time on the beach and in and around the holiday cottage - villa!! Ana Maria - the owner was very helpful in assisting us with everything we needed and we simply had one of the simplest and most wonderful holidays ever!! We flew in from Faro - but also possible from Lisbon airport... One needs a car - but they are cheap as chips in Portugal, though the drivers are quite nuts!! Already booked for next year - only wish there were more places in the same complex as we'd like to take a group of 15 friends (adults and kids) for a magical time by the sea...!! Yahho for March 2012... :)

Comfortabel, goed verzorgd vakantiehuis

  • 5 of 5

Heerlijk huis met 3 goede slaapkamers + badkamers en een prima keuken. Mooie tuin waar je heerlijk kunt zitten in verschillende hoekjes. Liefdevol ingericht en voorzien van alle comfort (inclusief parasols, strandstoeltjes, strandlakens etc).

Adembenemend mooi strand op loopafstand. Net als camping met winkeltje en barretje. Kortom heerlijk huis voor zeer relaxte eerste vakantieweek voor ons gezin met 3 kinderen.

Prima vakantiehuis vlak aan zee

  • 5 of 5

Wat een prachtig vakantiehuis op nog geen tien minuten lopen van het strand! We hebben er met 6 personen gezeten en dat ging prima. Het huis is modern en zeer sfeervol ingericht. Goed ingerichte woonkamer, prima douches, goede bedden, een volledig ingerichte keuken, handdoeken, badlakens, parasols, spelletjes, boeken en zelfs een TV en heel veel dvd's. Met name in de achtertuin hebben we veel gezeten, er is altijd wel een plekje met zon of schaduw te vinden.

Een keer per week kwam de tuinman en iemand die het huis poetst, en de bedden/handdoeken verschoonde.

Het vakantiehuis bevindt zich op een villapark in de nabijheid van een camping met een winkeltje een bakkertje en een vishandel. Van de camping hebben we geen overlast gehad, er was s'avonds wel regelmatig live muziek, maar dat alleen maar gezellig. Het strand is vrij rustig. Een paar kleinere dorpjes in omgeving. Afstand naar Lissabon zo'n 130 km.

We hebben een heerlijke vakantie gehad met de meest prachtige stranden vlakbij. Kortom een aanrader.

Off the beaten path, nerely 140 km south of Lisbon and with easy access to the highway A2:

Golf: The Troia Golf course is located approximately 30 Kms from Gale.

The holes are laid out on the dunes whilst magnificent pine woods line most of the fairways on the inland side. Whilst playing the player has charming views across the sand to the magnificent blue Atlantic. The first hole provides a par-5 with a green protected by no less than eight bunkers! The par-4 on the third hole is considered outstanding by many golfers. As the fairways tend to be narrow accuracy is imperative in order to score well. The renowned 18th hole has claimed many a victim on their point of glory - happily for the failed golfer the clubhouse is very close.
