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.
Terms and Conditions
'Travel Restrictions Guarantee' applies to bookings for arrival between 1st May 2021 and 31st December 2021 only.
If there are restrictions advising against travel to your chosen destination country, you will be able to cancel your villa and receive a holiday voucher for the full amount paid for your villa to rebook when you are ready to do so.
If there are restrictions in your destination country preventing you from being able to travel to that destination, you will be able to cancel your villa and receive a voucher for the full amount paid for your villa to rebook when you are ready to do so.
'Travel Restrictions Guarantee' is automatically included in the search results price on the solmarvillas.com website.
The premium paid for 'Travel Restrictions Guarantee' is non-commissionable.
The premium can be removed from the basket if not required. If removed during booking, you still have 7 days from confirmation to add this back on if needed.
For bookings made less than 6 weeks before arrival, this premium can't be added or removed after booking.
The 'Travel Restrictions Guarantee' is non-refundable, non-transferable and non-commissionable.
Cancellation of the booking will also result in loss of the premium paid.
You should ensure you have adequate comprehensive travel insurance to protect you in cases of cancellation for any other reason including, but no limited to, being unable to travel due to airline failure or cancellation, being quarantined for or diagnosed with Covid-19 or unable to travel due to work commitments or restrictions upon return.
Normal Terms and Conditions will apply for ancillary products such as car hire and transfers etc.

Faro Airport (FAO)
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.
Accommodation layout well suited for young children.The barbecue area was excellent

The villa was perfect for our family. We took our son, daughter in law and 2 year old granddaughter. It was in a perfect position for the beach and a short walk to restaurant bars and supermarket. The villa was very spacious with plenty of places for a 2 year old to play. We all had a relaxing and enjoyable holiday. Would recommend Gale, which is quiet and perfect for a family holiday.

Nice big 4 bedroom villa. 35 to 40 mins drive from Faro airport. Just 12 mins to Albufeira marina for the boat rides and another 10 mins to the Old Town. Easy walk or drive to supermarkets. Great beach restaurant at Lourenco, 10 mins walk. Big portions and measures at the Dubliner bar up the road. Salgados golf club just 10 mins drive.

The villa was great and in a lovely location convenient for the local supermarket and beaches. The facilities were excellent although the pool was cold due to the time of year but would have been nice if it was heated.

Great villa, very large, it accommodated 8 of us with plenty of space. Quality of villa very good. Only improvement to suggest would be a pool clean every 3 - 4 days rather than weekly. Otherwise a lovely villa, highly recommended.
Fabulous villa with everything you need, perfect location for beaches and supermarket both within 10 min walk. service from Solmar excellent, this was our second year of booking a villa , they are second to none. made our holiday extra special. really was home away from home

Well appointed villa throughout and spacious. Large pool and lovely outside eating area with bbq. Good washing and drying facilities.

The villa is quite spacious and the presence of 4 bathrooms makes it convenient for a larger family group. The pool and covered terrace with BBQ make for pleasant days and evenings socialising. It is a 10 minute walk to the nearest, small beach and only 15 minutes to the larger Playa da Gale beach. There is a good quality supermarket (Apolonia) within a 15 minute walk and bigger supermarkets (including Lidl and Aldi) within 4 miles. The villa was serviced every alternate day, including towel changes, and bedding was changed weekly. Site security is good, with electrically-controlled vehicle and pedestrian access gates. We would go back to Villa Marali when next in the Algarve.

We absolutely loved this villa, in a charming residential road a short walk from the beach. The decor is light and tasteful. The rooms are huge, with large en suite bathrooms and a study which is the ideal location for a cot. The pool is a good size and there is plenty of vehicle parking space and a car port behind the property. The management were helpful and the maid is charming. A fabulous week for grandparents, children and grandchildren.

Rated Excellent. Villa Marali is beautiful. It is close to the beach, shops and places to eat. A lovely place to stay.

Could not believe our luck when we arrived here. Booked with a Groupon deal so an absolute bargain. Every bedroom had its own bathroom, kitchen was really well equipped and the pool and barbecue area were lovely. Everything spotless and lovely cleaner came in twice while we were there for the week. Perfect for a week's relaxation. Gale is a very quiet location (certainly in April) only downside is that there is not really a 'centre' or street where you can browse restaurants or shops. However there are a number of restaurants in the area and also supermarkets a short drive up the road. I had seen some negative reviews of Solmar but our experience of them was positive with good communication prior to leaving and good support in the resort from the local agent. I'll be looking out for the next Solmar Groupon!

We had a lovely time at the villa marali in the algarve. The villa was exceptional and wouldn't hesitate to recommend to Solmar Villas to family and friends.
