Gale Villa Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms all recently modernised, plus family/play room

This lovely family villa sits on a corner, at the entrance to a cul de sac of privately owned villas, and on the road to the very popular Galé beach.

Set in a private gated garden, you can relax in peace or enjoy a swim in the recently rebuilt swimming pool, which has underwater lighting for your evening relaxation. Thoughtful design and comfortable furnishings makes this a perfect holiday home for family and friends alike, with the recent addition of new double glazing adding to your comfort. The lounge & ground floor bedroom lead out onto a patio area, while the upstairs bedrooms have patio doors leading out onto generously sized balconies where you can sunbathe, or just enjoy the seaviews & catch the sun going down. With its bright modern kitchen & separate lounge/ playroom for the children, this villa has everything you could possibly need for the makings of a perfect holiday.

Within walking distance to some of the most beautiful beaches and coastal walks in the Algarve, & just a short walk to a minimarket, bars, snack bars & some excellent restaurants. Taxis/bustop 100metres.

Although a car is not necessary, we would always advise it if possible as it makes shopping so much easier and there are so many beautiful places to see in the area, it would be a shame to miss them.

Ideally placed the villa is within walking distance of many beautiful beaches, including Castelo. Evaristo, São Lourenço and Galé with its fine sands taking you all the way to Armacão De Pera, a popular holiday resort with the Portuguese. For the nature lovers there are some beautiful walks along the cliff paths, where you can enjoy the dramatic views of the coastline or just stop off at one of the beach restaurants and enjoy some freshly caught fish and a glass of wine. For the more energetic Salgados golf course is only 2kms away with many other top courses within a 20min drive.

Just a few of our Guests comments: This is the first time we have chosen a holiday on the Internet. It was obviously a gamble, but after contacting Andrew & Linda we had excellent dealings from start to finish with them both. The villa itself is ideally placed for the area, exceptionally clean & to a very high standard. The beaches are beautiful & majority of restaurants are excellent.

This is our first trip to the Algarve & won't be our last. The villa & pool was excellent, exceptionally clean & well placed for local restaurants & beaches.

The villa is truly a home from home for us. We love the decor, everything is on hand to make your holiday perfect. Our housekeeper is second to none, if only we could take her home with us!

This was our first visit to the area & definitely not our last. The villa is very well located, close to local beaches all of which are excellent with good restaurants. Thanks for a great holiday in the excellent villa Casa Bellevue, it exceeded our expectations with the pool a great asset.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We were very lucky weren't we with volcanic ash ... you could start off our comments in your guest book that we would have considered ourselves extremely lucky to be stranded in Casa Bellevue for an additional few days...!

We had a great time - Kevin, your recommended taxi driver was very helpful - he took us to a very good restaurant for chicken peri peri, Alfredo’s in Guia.

We particularly liked the beach nearest to our villa and the beach restaurant served white wine sangria that was second to none...

Scoobys was perfect for the younger members of the family and the boat trip with 'blackrunner' will never be forgotten....

My sister couldn't believe my photos as she had very different memories of her Algarve holidays - we would definitely come back and thank you for making us feel so welcome.

Best wishes

Casa Bellevue was absolute perfection! A group of us (4 couples) stayed there this summer and it was absolutely fantastic. The pictures online really don't do it justice, on arrival we were all delighted with how bright, modern, airy and beautiful the villa is. The owners were just lovely, they greeted us on arrival and took the time to give us an amount of information on everything and anything we might need or wish for during our stay. The location is ideal, plenty of wonderful restaurants in the area, along with the most beautiful beaches you could imagine, and it's only about 5/6 minutes drive from Albuferia old town. The villa was spotless, during our stay cleaners arrived every morning, a pool man and gardener also made an appearance and all managed to do a wonderful job with out disturbing anybody. We had an amazing time, the villa had everything we could possibly have hoped for, except for one thing...... A pen!... Which is why we didn't write a review in the lovely little review book in the living room :-)

Owner's Response: Thank you Trisha for your lovely comments, it's always good to know that we are getting things right. We have an excellent team who work really hard to look after our guests and they will be pleased to know their efforts are appreciated. Do bear us in mind if you return to the Algarve, we would love to welcome you back. Regards Andrew & Linda

Top notch. Great accomodation and service

  • 5 of 5

The property is in great shape and spacious and everything advertised is just spot on or even better in real life. The daily cleaning of the villa and the pool was a surprise to us but a welcome one and the villa is really well-maintained. The pool and garden is great for a laid back vacation and ofc for some serious charcoal cutlets.

Our landlord/lady, Andrew and Linda, had frequent contact with us before our arrival and we felt very well informed. Everything agreed upon before arrival was fulfilled when we arrived. Our ground transport from Faro to the villa is worth mentioning, Our landlord/lady set this up and this eliminated all the worries that going by taxi in foreign countries sometimes can cause, thx for the ride Kevin! The great service continued during our stay and the service was immaculate.

During our stay we only had two hick ups:

1 of our 5 air conditioners broke down and couldn't be fixed during our stay and the chefs knifes in the kitchen was kind of dull. In short, nothing worth being upset about.

The area is just splendid with beaches, mini market, taxi stand, sportsbar, a couple of restaurants and a proper supermarket all in walking distance. We thoroughly enjoyed the sportsbar "JK:s" and found the staff/owner to be a great host for a night cap or a mid day cup of coffee.

Besides that the beaches are all worth visiting but at least a couple in our company chose to just stay at the splendid pool.

We also played some golf at Salgados (nice course and 5 minutes away by taxi) and went in to Albufeira which is 10 minutes by taxi.

The only thing i think some people can find a bit disturbing is the nearby road, we didnt, when the occasional car goes by during the night.

If you want to stay in a really nice and calm/safe area of Algarve and still want closeness to beaches, restaurants and the vibrant city of Albufeira this is the spot for you.

We can really recommend this villa and staff/landlord/lady to anyone looking for a stay in the Algarve.

Owner's Response: Thank you everyone for your positive review, it’s very much appreciated and always good to know that our guests have enjoyed their stay. Thank you for letting us know about the chef knives, this is one of those situations where you don’t know there is a problem until someone tells us, as we don’t get to use the knives ourselves. Either way, it’s easy to fix and we will attend to it. Also, you will be pleased to know, the aircon part has arrived and the engineer has fitted it today, so all is working perfectly again. We will be pleased to pass on your thanks to “Kevin the taxi,” he provides an excellent service for our guests, and will be glad to hear from you. Thank you again, you were excellent guests and we would love to welcome you back again. Best wishes Andrew & Linda

Lovely holliday

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely fantastic holiday at Casa Bellevue. The villa was just perfect! We were a total of 9 persons (included a two-year old boy) and our stay turned out to be better than we could ever expect! A nice and clean house, nice bedrooms with balconies and the bathrooms were also clean and nice. The area is quiet, still very central with walking distance to restaurants, supermarket and the beautiful beaches.

If you want a really relaxing holiday, this is the place! Fabulous pool area with loungers for everybody, a refreshing pool and a really nice lawn for playing badminton etc. The property is in really good shape, and the BBQ area, where we spent a lot of time in the afternoons and evenings, is also great!

Andrew and Linda were very service-minded and helpful!

We rented a car for 10 days at the local Car Rental. Low prices, and good service-minded personal. With a car you can easily go for longer trips, which we also recommend. Portugal has a lot to offer, it´s beautiful!

If you need a taxi, there´s a taxi parking lot 1 minute walk from the villa. Perfect!

It takes 5-10 minutes by car to Albufeira. Albufeira is nice, but in some ways stressful. A lot of nice restaurants and pubs, like any other tourist town. It´s really good to come back to Casa Bellevue after an evening in Albufeira. So nice, so quiet, so relaxing.

The restaurants in the area are also really good! We strongly recommend "Jompra", a first class restaurant! Excellent meals, nice people!

For our family, this was paradise! Perfect!

Villa Bellevue

  • 5 of 5

The villa Bellevue provides the ideal location for the beach and all the local attractions such as Zoo Marine. We found the villa very clean, well maintained, very well appointed and spacious, with a variety of play things for the kids in and out of the pool. The outside area was a great space for playing games and the pool was just the right size, if a little too shallow at one end. We have stayed a number of times in and around Gale, and we would highly recommend this villa to anyone wishing to stay in the area . Linda and Andrew are always very helpful providing invaluable advise on where to go and what to see. Overall a 5 star villa for the perfect holiday getaway

Owner's Response: Hi Kirsty & Co, many thanks for your comments, they are very much appreciated. We think that Casa Bellevue is in an excellent location, for the beaches, restaurants and waterparks and considering the amount of times you have visited Galé its good to know that you do too. It was really nice to see you all again and lovely to see the children enjoying the pool, especially Alex's new found diving skills! We hope to see you again in the near future, you will be more than welcome. Best Wishes Andrew & Linda

Fantastic Villa!!

  • 5 of 5

Just back home after a thoroughly enjoyable stay at the Casa Bellevue!! the villa was fist class from start to finish no complaints what so ever......The bedrooms were spacious,clean and had great storage. The pool was absolutely fantastic and was very clean and bigger than we expected. We made great use of the BBQ and would highly recommend the `Apolonia` supermarket for all your meat it was very good quality.

The beach is a 10 min walk away and well worth a visit. There is also quite a few restaurants within short walking distance. JK's is good for breakfast and lunch and Por do Sol is great for dinner very authentic!!

Andrew & Linda were very helpful and provided us with all the information we needed for a great holiday. We would definitely stay again in Casa Bellevue and would highly recommend it to others!

Owner's Response: Hi Linda & family, thank you for your lovely comments, it's good to know you enjoyed your stay at the villa. The pool is lovely isn't it, it was completely renovated a few years ago and is now like new. All our guests pass comments on it. The built in BBQ is also a recent addition and has been a great success, especially when you can get all your BBQ meats ready prepared from Apolonia! We haven't eaten at the Por Do Sol, but after your recommendation we shall certainly try out the fish. Thanks again for looking after the villa and we hope to see you back here. Best Wishes Andrew & Linda

5 star villa 5 star holiday

  • 5 of 5

Casa Bellevue is a lovely well maintained villa and we didnt want our holiday to end, weve stayed in afew villas in Portugal and this one is definatley up there with the best!!!Supermarket Apolonia is within walking distance(10/15 mins)which cater for all your needs,English brands, portugese brands etc.

Por Do Sol is a restaurant i would strongly recommend,5 mins walk to the left of villa.

With 8 people on our hol ranging from 29 to 19 months the villa did entertain us all, the pool was very well looked after and very clean, lovely bbq area at the end of the garden.Linda and Andrew were brilliant with there customer service, whether you rent a car or not you are close enough to enjoy all the ares, "the strip" is very much buzzing day and night with many shops, bars, restaurant, and "The old town" very much the same with different entertainment most nights, the puppet man, fire burners, pan pipe players.

whether you 8 or 68 Zoo Marine is difinately a fab day out watching the dolphins and sea lions, the bird show or just relaxing at the water area.

5 star holiday in a 5 star villa would absolutely recommend to a friend
