I am a Training Analyst for a local healtcare 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 with a glass vihno verde or try some cocktails at the local beach bar. Tracey Richards - email@example.com
Tracey or Geoff purchased this apartment in 2011
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......!
All our apartments have excellent views over the swimming pool and out to sea.
Wonderful apartment, well equipped, good location, large swimming pool, close to beach and superb views.
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.
Ideally situated for all local attractions and an excellent base for discovering the Algarve coastline.
