Long term good provision.

  • 4 of 5

The property was in an excellent position for visiting all our favourite places in the Algarve. The flat was well equipped, beautifully clean and provided plenty of room for the two of us during a long stay. The owner was always responsible and available.

Great Apartment and Location

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time in this apartment. Well stocked with household utensils and appliances, just like being at home. The WIFI access was a must for me and worked well throughout my stay . The heated pool was a bonus.

Gale is a brilliant place to holiday especially if you are linguistically challenged like myself as most shops and restaurants staff spoke very good English. Location wise was ideal for Zoomarine and Slide and Splash.

A few good restaurants within walking distance and reasonable priced. Fantastic cakes can be found at the first roundabout which we only discovered on the day we were due to return home.

I would definitely book again.

Well-appointed lovely apartment

  • 5 of 5

We spent seven days here. The weather was glorious and the apartment lived up to expectations and then some. It was beautifully presented, clean and well-equipped. The heated pool, lovely grounds and verandah with barbecue were a delight. The area is great to explore with cliff paths, small coves and interesting rock formations - a photographer's dream. We had two games of golf - one at Salgados only 10 minutes away and Santo Antonio towards Lagos. Very different but lovely and very enjoyable despite the scores. A thoroughly good time was had by both of us and we would love to return in the future and bring family or friends. Thank you Howard.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the lovely comments as per the advert I've tried to make it a home from home rather than a holiday apartment. I look forward to welcoming you back soon.

One of a small, smart development of apartments in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

The luxury apartment is really well presented and equipped and it was a joy to sit on the balcony overlooking the heated pool which we thoroughly enjoyed using. We appreciated the use of the TV with its many channels and made relaxing in the evening perfect (with a bottle of the local wine). The location is perfect, being near to the beach and an excellent supermarket. Security is good with plenty of parking too. My daughter and I had a wonderful holiday and we look forward to returning next year and thank you Howard for our stay. We would definitely recommend this listing to friends and family.

The apartment was beautiful. It was very clean.

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is situated in a great area(guia). We had our car and found out that the aquapark like 'aqualand' and zoo marine where just a short drive away.

At the apartment we found helpful information provided about restaurants and places of interest.

There are also two restaurants opposite that are great and come in handy after a long day out.

There are also supermarkets close by.

The pool was great my kids really enjoyed themselves and the area around the pool was kept very clean.

This was our first time booking via this website. All in all a great experience .
