One of the many courses in the Algarve, it was once an aircraft landing strip and wetland area beside a bird sanctuary.

It has been compared to both a Scottish links course and a water-filled Florida course and if you enjoy water challenges this course is for you.

The par 4 seventh is rated amongst the best holes in Portugal. The final three holes decrease in difficulty allowing golfers to ease up after a testing first 15.

Stayed in Gale for the last 6 years, the villa is in a great location and was immaculate inside and out. The owner and his family were very friendly.

Customer rating 5/5

Jacqueline Fox, 04-May-2013

Once again we had a fantastic holiday in a Villa Plus property. The location was excellent, the villa was excellent and to top it all the weather was excellent. This was the first time for some of our party and they are converted, the children just loved the pool and the adults enjoyed the fact the kids were happy and occupied. We are currently looking at other Villas for next year.
