With a restaurant virtually opposite, a minimarket for essential provisions and the magnificent sandy beach of Salgados all within easy walking distance, the convenience of this location is amongst our best on the Algarve. Sitting in lawned, private grounds, amongst properties of similar stature, this modern, well-appointed house would make an excellent choice for anyone looking to keep car use to a minimum. Topping the list of attributes is surely the benefit of having direct beach access; turn left out of the front door, cross the car park immediately adjacent and within a few hundred metres you will be standing on the golden sands of one of Portugal’s most impressive beaches.
Both inside and out there is no shortage of space in which to relax, all rooms being bright, welcoming and with good facilities. From the living room patio doors lead directly onto the covered dining terrace with the lawn and private pool just a few steps beyond. A twin bedroom on the ground floor and two further bedrooms upstairs create options for sharing parties especially as each bedroom has the benefit of its own corresponding bath or shower room.
From the fully enclosed grounds and, particularly, the first floor, far reaching views encompass a sweeping stretch of coastline heading westwards towards Armaçao de Pera, reaching even as far as Lagos on a clear day. Providing a more than eye-catching backdrop, the glittering Atlantic Ocean makes poolside living at Casa do Farol particularly appealing.
While there may be no immediate need to use the car, do take some time to explore further afield. The Algarve is world famous for its incredible range of attractions, family-friendly activities, gorgeous sandy beaches, good restaurants and stunning golf courses (such as the respected Salgados course which is only 2km away). For anyone seeking bright lights and exhuberant nightlife, cosmopolitan Albufeira (6km), while a world away from the relaxed Galé neighbourhood, is easily reached by taxi.
