Have just returned to the UK after a fantastic 2 week stay at Monte dos Avos at Vale de Parra between Guia and the coast at Galé. We stayed at the sister apartments "Flor de Laranja" last year, and have been overjoyed with the welcome, and the facilities at Monte dos Avos this year. The apartments are well appointed, well equipped and set in a beautiful, well maintained garden, with a lovely inviting pool. There are plenty of a bbq facilities, and a laundry room, with 2 washing machines. Yes, you need a car, as it is about 10 minutes drive to the fabulous beach at Galé. There are plenty of wonderful restaurants in the vicinity, and a marvellous "Apollonia" supermarket, which could teach Waitrose a thing or two about customer service. I highly recommend, and thanks for a wonderful stay, see you next year !
