More about Galé...........
Galé is the ideal location for a peaceful and relaxed holiday. It is only 40 minutes from Faro airport. It suits families looking for a beach holiday without the hustle and bustle of busier, more commercialised resorts.
It offers some of the prettiest and secluded coves and beaches on the Algarve (Sao Lourenco, Galé beach, Sao Rafael, Castillo etc....) all Blue flag beaches, each with their own beach bars, cafes and restaurants.
500m from the apartment is the well known Apolonia supermarket, the Portuguese version of Waitrose. There is a wide choice of Portuguese foods as well as a good selection of UK products. If, however, you do not want to cook whilst on holiday, there is a good choice of restaurants within walking distance, ranging from beachfront cafes to the upmarket Michelin starred Vila Joya restaurant.
It is not essential to hire a car. We can arrange a transfer for you from the airport to the apartment (extra cost). There is a bus stop outside the apartment and the taxi rank is just a 5 minute walk, so unless you are planning to do lot's of sightseeing, a car is not strictly necessary. Albufeira, with it's more lively nightlife, is only a 10 minute taxi or bus ride away. The main bus station in Albufeira links all the major resorts along the Algarve, going east or west.
There is plenty of free parking available in the car park outside the apartments and underground parking with one allocated space.
Out and about..........
Guia, well known as the birthplace of the famous chicken Piri-Piri and the location of Sir Cliff Richard's vineyard, is just 10 minutes away by car. Also here is the Algarve shopping complex where you can find factory outlet shops and large supermarkets. For families, various attractions such as Zoomarine and Aqualand are all approximately 15 to 20 minutes by car. Salgados golf course is very close, just 5 minutes by car. Numerous golf courses can be found close to Albufeira and Vilamoura, golfers are spoilt for choice. Birdwatchers will find plenty of interest at the nearby Salgados lagoon, including flamingos. This is easily accessible by car or by walking along a series of wooden walkways along Galé beach to Salgados.
All in all, Galé has something to offer for everyone.........

I am a Training Analyst for a local healthcare organisation and run the Gale Mar Apartments from the UK. I have a family who love to visit Portugal and Gale Mar and spend hours splashing in the pool and playing on the beaches. We love the restaurants and have spent many happy family holidays in the Algarve. In the evening, we love to stroll to a local restaurant and try some new local cuisine with a glass of vihno verde or try some cocktails at the local beach bar. Tracey Richards - firstname.lastname@example.org
Tracey purchased this Apartment in 2011
Why Tracey chose Sesmarias
We decided on Gale as it is close to all local attractions, shops and towns, but quieter so you can "get away from it all" if you want to. The beaches in this area are stunning and the apartments are well looked after. As a family, we love to explore local areas, try different restaurants and relax by the pool and on the beach - the doughnut sellers on the beach are an added bonus......!
What makes this Apartment unique
Our apartment has excellent views over the swimming pool and out to sea. The views can be seen from the kitchen, lounge, bedrooms and the huge balcony/veranda. The veranda wraps around the whole of the apartment and enables you to get the sun all day long.

We had a three bed apartment which was absolutely perfect for us
I had booked a short break for three ladies celebrating a special birthday
The apartment was perfect for our needs and we felt at home straightaway. It was immaculate in terms of cleanliness
It had everything we could possibly have needed and wonderful views
We could not have been happier
We could highly recommend this to family or groups as there is plenty of space . It is about 40 mins from faro airport and so even though we were only having a short break it was well worth the trip
Tracey and Geoff were very helpful with the last minute questions etc and could not have made our stay any easier
The guidebook was very informative and well the apartment was very well equipped in the kitchen and dining area and even some books
We have all said that we would love to go back
Thank you for taking the time to leave this fantastic review. I am really pleased you enjoyed your stay.
Very comfortable and a good size for 4 adults and 3 small children. Balcony was fab!
Very good location, quiet but within easy reach of 🌊 Beaches, shops and places to eat. We all loved it.
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay. We love the beaches in Galé and the restaurants.
Stayed here for 8 nights with my family, their partners and my 9 month old grandson. Couldn't have picked a nicer apartment - extremely spacious giving each couple privacy if needed! Apartment beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean - loved it!
Gale itself seemed very quiet when we arrived but after a wander we found some excellent restaurants! We hired a car and travelled around and family visited Albufeira and Vilamoura so also in a smashing location!
Would highly recommend to close friends and family - thank you!
Thank you for your review - it is very much appreciated. I am really pleased you found the benefits of staying somewhere like Galé. I agree with you, it is quiet but you can travel to other resorts quite easily and we love the beaches in Galé. Thanks again for taking the time to write a review.

Alles tip top geregeld!
Prima appartement met al de nodige voorzieningen. Drie slaapkamers met elk een badkamer, volledig uitgeruste keuken. Alles piekfijn in orde. Er was zelfs speelgoed voor de kinderen en gerief voor aan het zwembad of het strand te liggen.
Extra positieve vermelding voor de behulpzaamheid van de verhuurders. Goede communicatie via email, ondanks het taalverschil. Eigenares had zelfs een taxi voor ons geregeld.
Ligging is op 3min.wandelen van de mooie stranden en de supermarkt.
Een aanrader voor een gezin met kinderen.
