average rating of 4.8333335 based on 8 reviews


  • 5 of 5

So fortunate to find this 3 bedroom penthouse in an ideal location, a real home from home, spent more time inside that we had planned because we didn't want to leave it, and when we did venture out we looked forward to our return. A large roof terrace with BBQ, 2 smaller balconies gave the four of us plenty of personal space when required. English TV, heated pool, quiet area, good restaurants and snack bars and beaches all within walking distance. With a good supermarket close by ensuring this makes for one of the best apartments we have stayed at in over 20 years of holidaying in the Algarve. We are already looking forward to a return trip.

Superfun family holiday, great apartment!

  • 4 of 5

Our family had a wonderful week in Galé. The weather was fab for our stay, meaning the location was perfect for trips to the beautiful local beaches - we tried a few, and they were all nice and clean. The apartment was spacious, clean and well-equipped. Although the particulars stated that the bedrooms were air conditioned, it turned out the communal living space was too, which was a relief on the very hot days. On arrival we found a "welcome pack" with some basic food items, but there were no household supplies like handsoap, washing powder, kitchen roll, dishwasher tablets (though there was toilet roll) which we felt could have been provided. We did get these things, so in the short term you may find our leftovers there! The pool area was social, and the apartment supplied loungers. We did find that the chemicals in the water were both very strong and different to the chlorine-based ones used in pools in the UK. Our skin did not like it very much! Thank you very much Galé Gardens for our wonderful stay - we will recommend to others:) 

The property was fantastic.

  • 5 of 5

The villa had everything you needed and was in a nice area. The villa was incredibly spacious and the sun terrace with its BBQ was lovely to sit at at night watching the sunset. It was only a 10-15 min walk to the amazing Gale beach ( 5 mins in the car). The villa , gardens and pool are all very well kept. The heated pool was fantastic for the kids and adults alike. I would highly recommend this property.

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.
