Town House Castelo Beach
About the home

It is on a small exclusive condominium consisting of 12 houses built around a large pool and nicely landscaped garden. The 1st floor balcony offers a stunning view towards Gale and is a great spot to sit with an evening cocktail watching the amazing sunsets that we frequently enjoy.

The Algarve / Central Algarve region
The Algarve is one of the sunniest places in Europe, with over 3,000 sunshine hours per year. The summers can be hot, but there is usually a refreshing breeze by the coast. Spring and Autumn is an ideal time for outdoor pursuits, such as golfing, biking, walking. The winters are mild and very often sunny, but do expect a few rainy days any time between October and March.
The Atlantic coastline offers a spectacular variation of scenery from dramatic limestone cliff formations surrounding tiny coves, to long, flat, sandy beaches ideal and safe for family holidays.
Go inland, and the mountains of Monchique provide a totally different viewpoint (and on some days a totally different climate) to the coastal areas. The terrain here makes it ideal for all types of activities, from off–road biking, hiking and quad biking to walking and simply enjoying the spectacular scenery.
The western facing side of the Algarve is certainly worth a visit. The beaches are beautiful and clean and the scenery fantastic – but be prepared for more wind and colder water! A favourite spot for windsurfers.
Go east of Faro and you will find the Ria Formosa, a protected part of the coast cut off from the sea by sand–spits, forming large areas of marshlands and lagoons teeming with wildlife.
Further east beyond Tavira the coast runs off towards Spain with mile after mile of Golden flat sand.
The Albufeira / Gale area
In the immediate area, you have a fantastic choice of sandy beaches and coves. Castelo Beach is the nearest, being approximately a 10 minute walk, with Evaristo being a little further. Gale, a beautiful long sandy beach stretching a few kilometres is about 15 minutes on foot, or just a few minutes by car - this is a fantastic spot to watch the breathtaking sunsets, it is good for swimming and for the energetic a good beach walk. Lourenço and Coelha are also within walking distance and the 2 beaches at São Rafãel are only a few minutes in the car . There are many small coves scattered along this part of the coast, some only accessible by foot.
Within easy walking distance there is a choice of good restaurants ranging from traditional Portuguese to Indian and Chinese.
There is a crazy golf course less than a 5 minute walk away, where you will also find a bar/restaurant, swimming pool and large screens to watch sport, soaps, etc. so something to amuse the whole family.
Less than 10 minutes by car is Albufeira Old Town which has a never-ending choice of restaurants and bars, a beautiful long sandy beach, live music venues, the Square which in the summer months hosts a lot of traditional entertainment, an abundance of shops and altogether a great atmosphere. It offers something for both young and old. Just a bit further on and you will come to the "Strip" where you can party until the early hours of the morning.
For the golfers in your party Salgados (an 18 hole links course) is a few minutes drive. Many others, such as the 5 award winning courses of Vilamoura, Vale de Milho, Gramacho and Penina, are no more than a 30 minute drive. In addition, the new course, designed by Nick Faldo, at Amendoeira is about 15 minutes.
Many water parks are within easy reach - Aqualand, Zoomarine (where you can swim with the Dolphins), Slide and Splash, Aqua Show, Atlantic Park. If you haven't got a car, then buses will pick you up from a point a few minutes walk from the house.

Me, my wife & 17 month old daughter & my in-laws stayed 10 nights at this townhouse in Gale. We were welcomed on arrival by Jackie & Tony who showed us around this immaculate spacious property. We arrived on Thursday evening when it was dark & had a good look around the house before freshening up & going out for a meal. When we woke up the following morning the setting is amazing. There is a great swimming pool which we couldn,t keep our daughter out of which was always quiet. There is remote security gates for peace of mind. There is 12 townhouses set in landscaped gardens with the pool, which is kept very clean. The townhouse its self has everything you need for a great stay! Bathrooms are finished to a high standard, compact kitchen, nice lounge, lovely patio to enjoy your breakfast or evening barbecue.There is some nice restaurants within 5 minutes walk & some nice bars too. Try the PICNIC restaurant on Castello beach, the food is very good with nice friendly staff with amazing sunsets in a little cove. So is the indian called CURRY NIGHTS.Overall the townhouse is lovely & the area is nice & peaceful, a bus to Albufeira takes about 10 minutes if you want a busier nightlife. 5 stars*****
