VILA GALÉ ALBACORA
The 4 star Resort Hotel Vila Gale Albacora is uniquely located in the Ria Formosa Natural Park, the last paradise of the Algarve, with stunning views of the Tavira and Cabana islands. The Algarve is famous for its wonderful, long, sandy beaches and the best beach in the area, on Tavira Island, is reached by a ferry boat from the hotel. Other beaches are less than a 5 minute walk away.
Holiday spots don't come much more peaceful than this. Just outside of Tavira, the Eco Hotel Vila Gale Albacora is part of a restored tuna fishing village, set on the riverfront in the Ria Formosa national park. With a unique mix of charming, historic buildings and well-designed, low-rise accommodation, it's no surprise that this hotel has won awards for conservation - it even has its own museum. From the pier, you can take a ferry trip to the beach at Tavira Island, or why not catch the shuttle bus into Tavira for some sightseeing?
This hotel has won a GOLD Travelife Award. Hotels with a GOLD award display a strong commitment to sustainability, taking great care of their environmental and social impacts within their business and local communities. They communicate their progress to others and are proud to show that they are leaders whilst constantly striving for continuous improvement.
Vila Gale Albacora is a little outside of the city, in a nature resort. For guests that don't have an own (or rental) car, there is a shuttle bus to town taking about 10 minutes, going about every 2nd hour but not after 6 p.m. Since the hotel is divided from the city by a river, requiring a long way around, it takes about 30-40 minutes to go to the city by foot. (On the way, you come across a large shopping center with a supermarkt, fashion stores, a cinema and large food court, which is a good alternative for those looking for some budget eating).
The Hotel became an eco-hotel that has received awards and recognition for its sustainable environmental practices.
