This charming villa is situated in a quiet area of Praia da Gale, 1.6 km from its golden sands. Within walking distance of local amenities and close to several attractions in Guia and Albufeira, this house has a separate independent apartment, making it ideal for large groups.
As you enter the property there is a staircase on your right leading up to the first floor.
The spacious living/dining room has a homely and traditional feel. Teracotta-style tiles are laid on the floor, the walls are white and there is attractive darkwood furniture. In the centre is an oval dining table and six chairs upon a rug. In the corner by the stairs is a small bar area with two bar stools. A lovely feature is the open fireplace which has a brick surround; scorched black from the previous heat of burning logs. In addition there are two cosy sofas, and a large side cabinet with the satellite TV. At the far end, patio doors open onto a covered terrace overlooking the pool. A small doorway leads to a cloakroom beneath the stairs.
A doorway to the side leads through to the country-style kitchen which has a range of wooden units at base and eye level, and a fresh white worktop. In the centre is a round breakfast table and four chairs and the kitchen is well-equipped with a dishwasher, microwave and washing machine, as well as an oven/hob and fridge/freezer.
The attractive master bedroom has a cream metal bedframe, bedside cabinets with soft reading lamps and a matching chest of drawers. There are wardrobes along one wall and in the corner; a door opens to a tiled, en-suite shower room.
* Garden apartment -
A path leads through the garden to the separate apartment. Set away from the house, this apartment enjoys privacy and independence with its own kitchen and bathroom facilities. This feature makes Vivenda Silva a good choice for large parties and could be used by a couple wanting extra privacy, or by older children who will enjoy the novelty of being away from the main house.
The front door opens into a cosy living room with a large sofa bed, and the open-plan kitchenette is fitted with wooden units, oven with grill and hob, and sink beneath a small window. There is also a small breakfast table and chairs.
The bedroom is furnished with a double bed, bedside cabinets and storage. It has the use of a separate shower room with walk-in shower, toilet and washbasins.
* First Floor
The staircase bends up and around to the central landing on the first floor. Straight ahead is a separate family bathroom with full bathtub, toilet and washbasin. On either side you will find a bedroom. One is fitted with a wooden-framed double bed, bedside cabinets, small lamps and fitted wardrobes. The other is similarly furnished but with twin beds.
Patio doors open from the living room to a dining terrace beneath the shade of the overhanging roof. There is a garden table and chairs, as well as an adjacent built-in barbecue - everything you need for relaxed family meals outdoors. There is also a poolside shower with blue tile, shaded by the overhanging leaves of a tall spiky palm. Handy for rinsing off after a sand-castling session down at the beach.
The terracotta sun terrace stretches out across the garden and contains the private swimming pool. In the corner, integral steps lead gently into the water. Sunloungers are lined up around the poolside where you can laze in the warm sun. To one side of the pool is a wide strip of green lawn.
As well as a wall and tall palms, the garden is bordered by an attractive climbing plant that has grown across much of the garden spreading its red petals across the terrace.
Within walking distance of local amenities and close to Guia and Albufeira's ample attractions, this villa has a separate self-contained apartment; making it ideal for larger parties...Read more
Charming 6/8 persons Villa in Galé - Albufeira Albufeira, Algarve, Portugal
Additional Location Information
This Villa is located in the peaceful back lanes of Galé, to the west of Albufeira. Gale has become very developed over the years, probably thanks to its lovely and popular sandy beach. The beach-front area of Gale is full with apartments, restaurants, and shops but this villa is set back from the busy sea-front in a peaceful residential area. The local attractions are within walking distance and Albufeira’s ample amenities are just a short drive away.
