Riad Serpa Gale is located in a quiet residential area of sunny Gale, just 45 minutes’ drive from Faro airport. In the surrounding area you’ll find plenty to keep yourself fed, watered and entertained, with your nearest supermarket being less than 10 minutes away by foot and the beach less than 15.
Despite being set back from the heart of Gale, you’ll never feel like you’re missing out. With bars, restaurants, beaches and shops just a short walk away you can easily choose what you want to do each day as it comes.
Your nearest beach is the beautiful Praia da Gale, a sandy Blue Flag beach with calm clean waters which signal the end of a miles-long stretch of pristine sands you can spend hours walking along. Kids of all ages are catered to in the area, with lots to see and do for little and big children alike.
If you rent a car during your stay, Gale offers easy access to the wider Albufeira area and Algarve region. Albufeira, the capital and heart of the Algarve, is around a 15 minutes’ drive from Riad Serpa Gale, promising a great day out for holidaymakers from all walks of life.
In the surrounding area you’ll find plenty to do, with golf courses, nature parks and waterparks all on your doorstep.
Albufeira is one of the Algarve’s top hotspots. It’s a charismatic beach town with an energetic and busy vibe where every type of holidaymaker can find something to enjoy. Not only is it family friendly and bursting with great activities for kids and teens, there is also a buzzing nightlife scene on the downtown strip for adults travelling on their own.
If you’re after something a bit more cultural, there is also a beautiful Old Town where all the best restaurants and historical sites can be found. For those looking to get a little bit extra out of their Albufeira stay, Vidamar Resort in the Salgados area offers all the perks of staying in a self-catered villa plus the amenities of a luxury resort.
Not far from there you’ll also come across the beachy Sao Rafael as well as Galé where the sandy stretches and deep blue waves will have you thinking you’re on the set of a photoshoot. Golf lovers might want to head to Amendoeira Golf Resort, located a quick fifteen minutes from Albufeira, which is perfect those who like a good game while still staying close to town.
Though most people tend to see the Algarve as all about the beaches and a holiday on the Med, there’s far much more to it than that.
But while you’re enjoying one of our fantastic villas in Algarve, you may well want to take some time out from all that sun worship to explore everything else the region has to offer!
Kids of all ages will be spoiled for choice when staying in Gale. Not only is there plenty to see and do within their immediate vicinity, the wider Albufeira offers a massive selection of activities and adventures designed with kids in mind.
Around Riad Serpa Gale, you have Praia da Gale right on your doorstep, a beautiful sandy Blue Flag beach popular with families of all ages. You’ll find plenty of kid-friendly activities around the beach area, such as snorkelling, pedalo slides and paddle boarding. Older children can enjoy more adventurous sports like windsurfing, Jet Ski riding and parasailing.
Just a short drive away from Riad Serpa Gale is Aqualand, a fun-packed waterpark where kids can easily spend a whole day enjoying its waterslides, rapids, lazy rivers and wave pools. Or, you can take them on a 4×4 safari of the surrounding areas, where local guides will show you the fascinating plant and wildlife that make Albufeira such a beautiful and diverse location.
Day trips couldn’t be easier as Gale offers easy access to plenty of destinations around Albufeira and the wider Algarve. Albufeira itself is only around than 30 minutes away, where kids can learn all about the area’s fascinating history and walk through its historic old town. Other historical sites in the area include the ruins of an ancient roman villa and a castle.
Kids can also discover the magic of Portugal on a boat trip around its beautiful caves and inlets where they’re likely to spot wild dolphins at play. Or, take a glass bottom boat out onto the waters to see what lies beneath the gentle blue waves.
