Gale in Portugal is just the most beautiful of places to holiday.
We have just come back form staying in a fabulous James Villa property in the gorgeous Gale area. We have travelled with James Villas before and their properties really are lovely. Casa Henriques is just fabulous well equipped , roomy and with he most wonderful pool. It is ideally situated close to a supermarket and just a few hundred meters from two absolutely top class sandy beaches.
It is a quiet area with a handful of restaurants and a safe family feel, No wild nightlife here but close enough to Albufeira, waterparks and an amazing marina for you to access easily if you wish.
We spent our days on the beaches and in the pool and oh how soothing it was to the soul.
The calming blues of Portugal make me so happy. It was a beautiful, quiet holiday just a little before the full season starts. We had days full of sunshine, sand, swimming, stone and shells, good coffee and lazy afternoons.
Rock pools and waves were enough for the children and it was so lovely to watch them be entertained and enchanted completely and endlessly by the natural world.
I read and relaxed, soaked up the sun and admired the flowers and the peace of this pretty coastal resort. The 5 km Gale beach is one of the most beautiful I have ever encountered. The stunning rock formations, unspoilt view and long walks make place so special.
We will go back again I am sure.
