Guestbook comments from the manager

We have been going to the Algarve for many years and this apartment is one of the best that we have stayed at. It had everything and made our holiday, so peaceful and relaxing. We will be going back very soon.

Excellent Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We moved to the apartment when the hot water failed in the villa we had rented for 2 weeks. Florence was extremely helpful and organised for our immediate arrival.

What a superb apartment. We have been holidaying in the Algarve for nearly 20 years, normally in villas, but this apartment has changed that for us. It is beautifully presented, spacious, comfortable and has all the amenities you could require in a home away from home including free to air Sky TV to keep up with events in the UK and an iPod dock.

In February, we were the only people in the very small estate so it was very quiet. We didn't quite brave the Swimming Pool at this time of year but the terrace this apartment has was wonderfully sunny in the afternoons. The 2 smaller balconies allowed for bright sunny coffee drinking in the early morning.

Gale is an excellent central Algarve location, for those with a car you can be at either end of the Algarve within an hour, in central Albufeira in 5 minutes or Faro in 20 minutes.

The beaches in immediate area are superb and easily walk-able for anyone but those with very small children. The nearby Apolonia supermarket is one of the best we have found.

We cannot recommend this apartment highly enough, certainly for off season holidays, and will be returning next year for the whole 2 weeks.

The long sandy beaches of Galé are within easy walking distance (700 metres) with excellent beach bars and water sports. There is a good supermarket just 200 metres away and one of the best fresh fish restaurants in the area is just on the other side of the road! Albufeira town is 6km away, around 10 minutes drive (there is also a bus service to Albufeira town; last bus is around 6pm). The old town of Albufeira is very interesting with narrow cobbled streets and old fisherman houses and then there are the numerous music bars and street entertainers together with regular free shows in the main square in the summer season. Guia town is 5km and is famous for many good value restaurants specialising in chicken piri piri. Algarve Shopping the largest shopping complex in the region is a 10 minutes drive, with Multiplex Cinemas and Ten Pin Bowling.
