Idealer Geheimtipp fuer Paare und Singles

  • 5 of 5

Teils allein, teils mit meinem Freund habe ich Ende Maerz eine Woche an der Kueste Gales im Casa 88 verbracht.

Wir suchten ein Ausflugsziel, um so richtig zu entspannen, eine Pause vom sehr arbeitsreichen Alltag, jedoch mit Moeglichkeiten fuer Abenteuer, Ausarbeitung, viel Natur, gutem Essen, gutem Wein, idealerweise am Ozean, da wir beide aus der Mitte Deutschlands kommen.

Die Reise began allein. Angekommen auf dem Flughafen in Lissabon, nahm ich mein Mietauto in Empfang und auf gings. Zur Autobahn A2 (gen Sueden) zu finden war ein leichtes und die ca 140 km nach Melides / Gale Beach eine angenehme Fahrt. Man fuehlt sich wie auf der Autobahn, nur dass man die Geschwindigkeitsbegrenzung beachten sollte und Maut bezahlt. Der ca 20 km lange Teil von der A2 Abfahrt Richtung Melides bis Gale ist landschaftlich sehr huebsch und man wird gut auf die laendliche Atmosphaere eingestimmt. Angekommen in Gale wusste ich sofort, das Plaetzchen findet nicht jeder und es hat tatsaechlich was ganz besonderes. Die Steilkueste ist atemberaubend und ideal fuer ausgedehnte Spazierganege, zum Schwimmen, surfen etc - allein als auch gemeinsam. Da ich selbst gern meinen morgendlichen Laeufen froehne, hab ich den Pinienwald gleich hinter dem Haus auch etwas naeher ergruenden koennen und festgestellt, das er neben sehr gutem Terrain zum Laufen sich auch als eine Superquelle fuer Kaminholz eignet. Denn bei einem Feuer im Kamin wird es abends urgemuetlich.

Ausserdem hab ich als idealen Snack die hausgemacheten Suppen entdeckt, die es in jedem Restaurant und auch nebenan auf dem Campingplatz gibt – super lecker und immer frisch. Gemeinsam haben wir dann auch die Restaurants der Umgebung erkundet. Die traditionellen Fischgerichte sind durchweg lecker und die Hausweine / Weine der Region. Und das Brot ist ein Gedicht…mit oder ohne dem Kaese oder den Oliven, welche als Vorspeise gereicht werden.

Natuerlich wollten wir unsre neugewonnene Lust auf die protugiesische Kueche mal selbst ausprobieren; so haben wir dank der Hilfe unsrer Vermieterin ein leckres Rezept und frischen Fisch vom Markt erhalten und einen gebackenen Fisch a la Portuguese zubereitet in unsrer Casa 88. Fuer uns die perfekte Abrundung einer gelungenen Woche Abenteuer und Seele-baumeln-lassen in Gale Beach, dem gut-gehueteten Geheimtipp.

Style space! Stunning beach 'n' sea, magical food!

  • 5 of 5

Classic space. Amazing comfort. All the mod-cons you need... Lovely clean and well maintained house with lots of style... Five minutes walk to the beach. Great for a large group - we had 4 adults and 3 kids in the one house... Summer camp nearby with fun things to do and great Portugese food... Lots of restaurants dotted around the area - seafood galore...!! A day of golf in the Algarve - a night out in Lisbon and the rest of the time on the beach and in and around the holiday cottage - villa!! Ana Maria - the owner was very helpful in assisting us with everything we needed and we simply had one of the simplest and most wonderful holidays ever!! We flew in from Faro - but also possible from Lisbon airport... One needs a car - but they are cheap as chips in Portugal, though the drivers are quite nuts!! Already booked for next year - only wish there were more places in the same complex as we'd like to take a group of 15 friends (adults and kids) for a magical time by the sea...!! Yahho for March 2012... :)

Prima vakantiehuis vlak aan zee

  • 5 of 5

Wat een prachtig vakantiehuis op nog geen tien minuten lopen van het strand! We hebben er met 6 personen gezeten en dat ging prima. Het huis is modern en zeer sfeervol ingericht. Goed ingerichte woonkamer, prima douches, goede bedden, een volledig ingerichte keuken, handdoeken, badlakens, parasols, spelletjes, boeken en zelfs een TV en heel veel dvd's. Met name in de achtertuin hebben we veel gezeten, er is altijd wel een plekje met zon of schaduw te vinden.

Een keer per week kwam de tuinman en iemand die het huis poetst, en de bedden/handdoeken verschoonde.

Het vakantiehuis bevindt zich op een villapark in de nabijheid van een camping met een winkeltje een bakkertje en een vishandel. Van de camping hebben we geen overlast gehad, er was s'avonds wel regelmatig live muziek, maar dat alleen maar gezellig. Het strand is vrij rustig. Een paar kleinere dorpjes in omgeving. Afstand naar Lissabon zo'n 130 km.

We hebben een heerlijke vakantie gehad met de meest prachtige stranden vlakbij. Kortom een aanrader.

Uma experiência a repetir

  • 5 of 5

Adorei as férias de Páscoa passadas nesta vivenda extraordinária. O local é absolutamente fabuloso, onde ainda se pode desfrutar de um misto de sensações. Ora se pode estar no campo, ora se pode estar na praia. Ideal para passar férias com familiares e amigos, pois cada um pode optar pelo que mais gosta de fazer “passear pelo campo ou pela praia”. Os meus amigos, familiares e filhos adoraram ! finalmente encontrei um lugar com actividades e gostos para todos.

Para além do conforto e elegância do interior da casa, 3 quartos muito cómodos, 3 wc’s, sala de estar e jantar (c/ TV por cabo) e cozinha em espaço amplo e aberto onde foi possível todos confraternizar-mos em simultâneo, a casa tem também um terraço e um jardim muito requintado e aconchegado. Distantes da confusão de uma cidade poluída e barulhenta, acordar com o chilrear dos pássaros foi simplesmente encantador.

Livre das multidões de turistas, passámos umas férias de praia e campo, super calmas e descontraídas, numa zona ainda com uma grande parte por desbravar e em estado praticamente selvagem. O espaço circundante desta vivenda é algo extraordinário. Este condomínio de vivendas é abraçado por um vasto pinhal e a praia encontra-se a uns escassos metros, podendo-se ir a pé, descendo a falésia por umas escadas de madeira até ao areal da praia. Do topo da falésia a vista para o oceano e o extenso areal é simplesmente deslumbrante. Foi possível avistar o nascer e por do sol como nunca antes visto. Não há palavras para descrever a soberba sensação e o divinal poder da natureza.

Não foi necessário utilizar-mos o automóvel, a não ser quando fomos explorar a zona e povoações vizinhas, fora isso, fizemos tudo a pé ou de bicicleta devido às curtas distâncias. Esta urbanização está muito bem situada, ao lado do parque de campismo e a poucos minutos de inúmeros restaurantes de grande qualidade que servem excelente cozinha portuguesa e excelente peixe e marisco fresco.

Adorámos! É definitivamente uma experiência a repetir.

The perfect beach house

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this house for 7 fabulous days. It was the last week of May (2011) and the weather was fantastic. We usually woke up around 9a.m. and had breakfast outside in the warm morning breeze. All house decoration, appliances and details seem to have been thought of with extreme refinement. The house is so beautiful and comfortable inside as well as outside.

I was enchanted by the back garden and balcony, a space where we could hangout all day, without direct sun exposure, and enjoy the gardens fragrances so carefully chosen, mixed with the so typical pine trees. The house is located close enough to the Melides and Grandola for us to go there for shopping or out and far enough not to bring any crowd to the beach. The Camping is in walking distance and it is a good base for any shopping or emergency.

We walked to the beach and as we got there and saw the landscape… it was mesmerizing. I know very well the Portuguese coast and I can say it is one of the best spots I’ve seen. It doesn't get crowded and the sun set is breathtaking. I would strongly advise this house to anyone.

I hope you choose it, it's a once in a life time experience.

Off the beaten path, merely 130 km south of Lisbon and with easy access to the highway:

Golf: The Troia Golf course is located approximately 30 Kms from Gale.

The holes are laid out on the dunes whilst magnificent pine woods line most of the fairways on the inland side. Whilst playing the player has charming views across the sand to the magnificent blue Atlantic. The first hole provides a par-5 with a green protected by no less than eight bunkers! The par-4 on the third hole is considered outstanding by many golfers. As the fairways tend to be narrow accuracy is imperative in order to score well. The renowned 18th hole has claimed many a victim on their point of glory - happily for the failed golfer the clubhouse is very close.
