We know that you might be feeling uncertain about booking your next holiday with the ever-changing travel restrictions, which is why we've introduced our Travel Restrictions Guarantee for your peace of mind.
Book your next villa holiday with confidence, safe in the knowledge that you can either move your dates or receive a holiday voucher for the full amount paid if your travel dates are restricted by either FCDO/local government advice advice or local restrictions in your destination country.*
The Travel Restrictions Guarantee is automatically included in the website price and can be removed before you book, however we strongly advise you keep it to give you added flexibility and protection.
You will still need to purchase a comprehensive travel insurance policy as soon as your booking is confirmed. This insurance should, as a minimum, protect you against cancellation, curtailment, medical expenses, loss/theft of possessions and documents, personal liability and airline failure.

Located less than a ten minute stroll from some of Gale’s extensive selection of popular sandy beaches, Villa Arines is sure to be a firm favourite with everyone.
We were immediately elated by the villas fabulous location and equally smitten by the smart and contemporary interiors. Each of the three bedrooms is finished to a high standard each boasting air conditioning and doors leading out to either the pool terrace or a balcony, and the care and excellent attention to detail is clearly evident throughout. This careful eye for detail is extended to the exteriors, where you will find an attractive lawned garden, as well as the lovely al fresco dining area and barbecue, which is conveniently located next to the kitchen to the rear of the villa, with an additional lovely terrace with comfy al fresco dining furniture found overlooking the inviting heated* swimming pool.
As lovely as the villa is, being located so close to the beautiful sandy beaches of Gale, and a short stroll from a smattering of shops, mini markets and restaurants, Villa Arines is sure to be a popular addition to our expanding portfolio of excellent villas here in the Algarve.
This swimming pool has been fitted with a Pool Heat Pump making the pool about 3°C to 5°C warmer at 1 pm than a non-heated pool in low season. In July and August, should the pool temperature exceed 28° C the pool heating will be turned off.

A sweeping three miles stretch of perfectly manicured golden sand dominates this part of the Portuguese coastline, and is backed by dramatic limestone cliffs making it one of the Algarve's most picturesque resorts. Gale beach (or Praia de Gale) is suitable for all ages, with calming waters ideal for paddling on some days, and on others there are stronger waves making water sports a great option. Our villas in Gale are within easy reach of the beach, whilst the vibrant town of Albufeira is just a short drive away.
The villa was nice , a few minor problems which we reported and should be easily solved. I think we were first in this year and was a new villa on their books. If you don't want to go everywhere by taxi I would hire a car, Unless you enjoy walking. It would have helped if there was some information about buses etc left in the information folder. The area was very quiet and nice and the villa was nice.
