There is lot's of choice of Portuguese foods as well as a good selection of UK products,also a cash dispenser inside the store. There is also an Ali-Super supermarket just 7 minutes walk away. If, however, you do not want to cook whilst on holiday, there is a good choice of restaurants within walking distance, ranging from beachfront cafes to the upmarket Michelin starred Vila Joya restaurant.

It is not essential to hire a car. We can arrange a transfer for you from the airport to the apartment (extra cost). There is a bus stop outside the apartments and the taxi rank is just a 5 minute walk, so unless you are planning to do lot's of sightseeing, a car is not strictly necessary.

About Tracey or Geoff

I am a Training Analyst for a local healtcare organisation and run the Gale Mar Apartments with my father, Geoff. I have a family who love to visit Portugal and Gale Mar and spend hours splashing in the pool and playing on the beaches. We love the restaurants and have spent many happy family holidays in the Algarve. In the evening, we love to stroll to a local restaurant and try some new local cuisine with a glass vihno verde or try some cocktails at the local beach bar. Tracey Richards -

Tracey or Geoff purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Tracey or Geoff chose Albufeira

We decided on Gale as it is close to all local attractions, shops and towns, but quieter so you can "get away from it all" if you want to. The beaches in this area are stunning and the apartments are well looked after. As a family, we love to explore local areas, try different restaurants and relax by the pool and on the beach - the doughnut sellers on the beach are an added bonus......!

What makes this apartment unique

All our apartments have excellent views over the swimming pool and out to sea.

A return trip and had another great time

This was the second time we have stayed in this apartment , and yet again we really enjoyed our stay. The location is great and so close to the beach, supermarket and lovely restaurants, all within walking distance. The pool on the complex is excellent and great for the children. The complex is safe and set in lovely gardens. The apartment is well equipped, clean and very comfortable. We would definitely recommend.

Brilliant Apartment and so close to wonderful beaches and restaurants.

  • 5 of 5

Spend 7 days at this wonderful apartment in May this year. Apartment had everything that you could possibly need. Certainly felt like a true home from home apartment. We have stayed in several accommodations in the Gale are over the last few years and this has been by far the best apartment. The location is amazing and the apartment itself is very modern and very well equipped. Tracey & Geoff were really great during the booking process and very informative about the area etc We will certainly be returning hopefully later this year.
