Due to their proximity to the sea, the apartments boast excellent sea views which are taken advantage of from alfresco dining on the balconies. The 2 bedroom apartments have 2 balconies, both have views over the communal gardens, pools and the sea and are furnished with dining tables, parasols and rattan outdoor seating ideal for lounging or reading a book.

The apartments are 200m from Sao Lourenco beach (approx. 4 min. walk) and 500m from Galé beach (approx. 8 min. walk). There is a large communal swimming pool with diving board, children's pool and jacuzzi. Sun loungers and parasols are available to use free of charge around the pool area.

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 apartments is the well known Apolonia supermarket, the Portuguese version of Waitrose. There is lot's of choice of Portuguese foods as well as a good selection of UK products,also a cash dispenser inside the store. There is also an Ali-Super supermarket just 7 minutes walk away. 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. There is a bus stop outside the apartments 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.

The parking..........

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.........

About Tracey or Geoff

I am a Recruitment Consultant for a local organisation and run the Gale Mar Apartments with my father, Geoff. 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. Tracey Richards - galemar-bookings@hotmail.co.uk

Tracey or Geoff purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Tracey or Geoff chose Albufeira

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

All our apartments have excellent views over the swimming pool and out to sea.

We have been regular visitors to this area over the last 10 years but first time at Gale Mar appts. I would have no hesitation in recommending these appts. They are very well appointed and the location is great for beaches and restaurants although

a car is an advantage. Booking with Tracey and Geoff guiding you through is easy.

First time visitors will have all the necessary information read for a smooth and stress free holiday

Great Locaton Perfect Appartment

  • 5 of 5

The photos of the apartment do not do it justice - the location is good the apartment very comfortable with all home comforts. The pool is a good size and when we stayed, wasn't busy even having this to ourselves on occasions. There are good restaurants within walking distance and a well stocked supermarket. We visited three beaches all within walking distance which were clean and comfortable The booking process was very efficient and the taxi transfer hassle free and reasonably priced. I would recommend car hire if you want to travel around the vicinity as the buses were very infrequent.

Owner's Response: Thank you Helen for your kind review. Pleased to hear everything lived up to your expectations. I agree it is much better to hire a car if you intend to travel further afield to discover more of the Algarve, Kind regards, Tracey

Prefect apartment in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

The property is very well appointed in a well maintained and quiet private condominium. With good beaches, restaurant and supermarket in easy walking distance it makes the perfect location for an easy sunshine break away from it all. Booking was simplicity itself as Tracey is very efficient and she organised the airport transfers for a very reasonable price too. We rarely return to the same place but with these apartments we maybe be sorely tempted!! Thanks for a great week.

5 star holiday

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we touched down in Faro Airport the holiday was a 5 Star one. We are a family of 7, mum, dad, 3 children aged 10,14,16 and 2 grandparents. Transfers were prompt and efficient. On arriving at the Apartment our first impression was "wow", it was spacious, beautifully furnished rooms and a view to die for! Beaches only 5 minutes walk away, supermarket Apollonia which sold absolutely everything you could wish for! We found several local restaurants within a short walk all serving excellent reasonably priced food. We hired a car but felt it wasn't really necessary. If you wanted to travel you could use the bus or taxis. So everything was perfect for our holiday right down to the fact that we could book our sunloungers on the beach for the entire holiday. We would definitely recommend to anyone, and would like to take this opportunity to thank Tracey and Geoff for arranging the holiday and making it great!! We will definitely be back!!
