Villa Galo – sophisticated inspiration in Western Algarve

Galo Watermark (13 of 18)Villa Galo, is situated in the “Serra e Mar” estate of privately owned villas, between the sea (Alvor and Praia da Rocha are just a 10/15 min. drive) and the mountains (Monchique is 20 min. away) – the perfect remote countryside feeling for a serene holiday.

Villa Galo is located in a cul de sac, away from the hustle and bustle of coastal towns, but only minutes away from all conveniences, well-known Penina golf course and others, local restaurants and wineries.

Villa Galo is in a setting of immaculate sweeping lawns, manicured gardens with mature trees and south facing terraces with inviting outdoor loungers. Furnished to the highest standard, Villa Galo provides a unique experience: the guests enjoy contemporary comfort in a most refined setting. An example of the uniqueness of Villa Galo are the original frescoes painted on the walls of the entrance hall and living room – the painter’s brush strokes visible in the minute curlicues.

Villa Galo is on the ground floor and consists of an entrance hall, a large living/dining room, spacious kitchen (fully equipped), and 3 bedrooms with distinctive features and superb en-suite facilities. The outdoor spaces are ample, comfortable and inviting. The garden has a spacious BBQ for al fresco meals. Beautiful, huge garden and a large mosaic tiled swimming private pool (6m x 14m) surrounded by a large fenced in terrace.

The use of color, soft furnishings, locally crafted floor, rugs and textiles, mixed with a romantic renaissance style of art and furniture make this a truly special place to stay. All three bedrooms have distinctive features and superb en-suite facilities.
