In our range of one to six-bedroom properties, you can take it easy, enjoying your own private pool or getting the family together for a game of tennis.

Gale is also home to some of the Algarve’s most impressive beaches, lined with bars and restaurants to keep you refreshed during your hard day of relaxing.
When the sun finally begins to drop in Gale, Vale de Parra and Guia, holidaymakers can return to their luxury villa and enjoy the privacy in their own secluded gardens as they cook up a storm in the luxury kitchens or barbecues. We also have a range of Algarve villas within resorts that offer shared pools, gyms and wellbeing centres, as well as restaurants where you can be treated to exquisite local cuisine by experienced chefs every night.
Vale da Parra and Gale
Vale de Parra and Gale are peaceful residential areas, with lots of lovely holiday villas and apartments, and a wide range of restaurants and cafes. It is here you will find the impressive Vidamar resort, situated next to the Salgados golf course - which is a challenging 18 hole golf course with water on almost every hole!
Close by to Vale de Parra is the developing and colourful marina of Albufeira, where there are a selection of waterside restaurants, cafes and bars overlooking the marina boats and yachts.
Along this stretch of the Algarve coastline you will also find some of the Algarve’s very best beaches, ranging from the glorious sandy expanses of Salgados and Gale, to the beautiful and more intimate coves of Sao Rafael, Castelo, Coelha and Evaristo. On every beach you will find at least one restaurant and beach bar, offering snacks and sumptuous seafood dishes. Vale de Parra and Gale are both very close and accessible to the old town of Albufeira, which is just a short drive or taxi journey away.
Situated seven kilometres inland from Albufeira, the village of Guia is a well known and popular place to visit, for a number of reasons.
It is in Guia that one of the Algarve’s major attractions, Zoomarine, is located. Thousands of holidaymakers visit Zoomarine every year to watch the dolphin shows and fabulous entertainment.
Couture and Cuisine
Guia is close to the Algarve Shopping centre, which is complete with a cinema complex with films in the English language, a wide range of shops and boutiques, a bowling alley, a large supermarket and an extensive food hall. Traditionally, Guia is also famous for the amount of local chicken piri-piri restaurants that you will find in the village. Chicken piri-piri is a spicy chicken dish, served simply with chips and salad- and is quite delicious! Today there are lots of other restaurants to choose from in Guia, to suit all budgets and tastes. And last but not least, in the Guia area you will also find Sir Cliff Richards’ fantastic vineyard and winery, where you can sample the produce on a wine tasting tour.
