GALE BEACH DESIGN VILLA – ALGARVE,

Gale Villa Rental Photos and Description

Luxury Villa – Algarve, 200 metres from the beach with private pool and tennis

Galé Design Villa in Algarve, 200m from the beach with private pool and tennis

Stunning luxurious beach-front villa, located in Gale Beach, next to Villa Joya Boutique Resort near Albufeira

Gale Design Villa: Villa for 6 adults and 4 children

5 bedrooms; 4 en-suite bathrooms

Spectacular open plan living room with sea views, dining room and decked terraces

Heated private swimming pool and private tennis court

Surface area: 285 m2, private garden 2300 m2

This stunning two storey design villa is set in a private 2,300m2 estate, 200 metres from Galé beach, in peaceful surroundings, and yet only 5 km East of the busy centre of Albufeira.

In the recent years, Galé and Salgados became two of the most sought after beaches in the Algarve. In spite of its ideal location in the centre of the Algarvian Coastline, just next to Albufeira, there are severe restrictions on development in this area, since the beautiful Salgados Laguna is home to several species of migratory birds, and thus protected. The Galé landscape is therefore outlined by some of the most exclusive resorts in Europe, such as the Vila Joya Boutique Resort (2012 Europe’s Leading Boutique Resort); and some of the most luxurious villas of the region. Thanks to its location, the villa is also a short drive from the Vilamoura International Marina and central Albufeira, both boasting a plenty of restaurants and bars, casino, nightlife, entertainment and internationally renowned golf courses.

Due to its unique architecture and design, the Galé Beach Villa quickly became a landmark in the area. Distinct details of colonial influence add a tropical flair to the modern villa, which was built to the highest standards of comfort, luxury and style. Clever details demonstrate how the owner architect was able to create such a unique holiday environment, and yet ensure absolute privacy to guests. The entrance hall is located at the northern end of the house: facing the private parking area, and secluded from the street thanks to tall palm trees. On the southern end of the villa, large all glass doors open onto sunny decked terraces facing directly the Ocean, and overlooking the pool and garden areas.

The entrance hall on the ground floor leads to the dining room, which opens onto the garden and pool areas via large all glass doors. The fully equipped kitchen is located next to the dining room and boasts a central cooking isle with a breakfast bar and a separate laundry room.

A staircase leads to the mezzanine living room, which boasts a unique tropical atmosphere and clear panoramic Ocean and beach views thanks to all glass french doors opening onto a large decked terrace, equipped with garden furniture and sun loungers. Indoors, the beautiful design furniture in the living room is bathed in amazing shades of red and orange lights before sunset. Entertainment is provided by the flat screen TV set with international channels, a DVD player and a DVD library, and a Hifi stereo system. Air conditioning is also included for added comfort. A outdoor staircase leads from the terrace to the pool and garden areas.

On the first floor, the master suite is the perfect accommodation for the truly discerning traveller. Boasting splendid Ocean and beach views and facing the sunset, the master suite is equipped with en-suite bathroom, a private decked terrace, a large double bed, a flat screen TV set and air-conditioning.

Two more bedrooms, each with its en-suite bathroom, open onto a decked patio and the gardens via large all glass french doors, and capture plenty of natural daylight. Each of these two bedrooms is equipped with two single beds which can be converted onto double beds.

Next to the entrance hall, one children’s bedroom features two bunk beds and en-suite shower room. In the basement, there is an additional bedroom with bunk beds, and a large lounging/play room. This room is accessed either from the entrance hall or the pool area. An interesting feature about this room is its natural blue colored light, which pours through a wide glass wall connecting to the interior of the swimming pool, creating a relaxing effect.

Unique Ria Formosa Nature Park is a short drive away

Outdoors and next to the dining room, there is a wonderful dining terrace over a wooden deck, ideal for a barbecue and other “al fresco” meals. The dining terrace overlooks the large (12,5x4m) private heated swimming pool, which is great for hours of fun, and the large gardens which have sunbeds.

At the back of the estate, the private hard tennis court is extremely well kept, and guests are required to use non-marking shoes.

The villa has private parking for 3 cars, and street parking is easy and secure.

Although a car is recommended to fully enjoy the many delights of the Algarve region, there is much to do within walking distance to the villa. Galé beach, and all its facilities and attractions, is a two minute walk away. A supermarket and world class restaurants are also a short walk away. The Salgados Golf Course, one of the most special in the Algarve, is a 20 minute walk away.

The villa is located in the very exclusive Galé area, right at the centre of the Algarve region, halfway between Vilamoura (20 minutes) and Faro to the East; and Portimão (25 minutes) to the West. The luxurious boutique resorts that define the Galé landscape have contributed to the unspoilt charm of the area, part of which are protected grounds, home to several endangered species of birds and plants. Only 5 km away from the busy centre of Albufeira, Galé offers absolute privacy, yet with all the practicality. Due to the highly distinguished guests it has been welcoming in the recent years, Galé is now renowned as one of the most hip summer destinations in Europe.

A perfect destination all year round, the Algarve offers unique beaches, numerous water sports, excellent sea-front fish restaurants and fabulous golf courses, as well as centres for tennis, horse riding, Motorsport and so much more.

Golf Information

Portugal is a paradise where the golfer can play almost every day of the year, and the Algarve is now internationally recognised for its many golf courses and playing conditions.

The scenic Salgados Golf Course, located within a protected area of Wildlife Reserve housing several rare species of birds, is less than 2 km away. With its narrow fairways bordered by the laguna, the 18 hole par 72 course offers an exceptional challenge for both beginners and skilled players.
