Local Amenities

The Algarve is famous for its golf courses and the nearest one to the villa is ten minutes drive away, Salgados golf course. They occasionally have live outside concerts there with bands like Simply Red appearing.

5 minutes drive from the villa is the new marina in Albufeira which hopes to give the larger Villamoura marina a run for its money as restaurants open and more boats dock there. If you are feeling energetic it's a good walk with several bars and restaurants on the way.

Zoomarine is close by and a great day out for families. It has dolphin and bird of prey displays and also boasts sealions and turtles and a great funfair. if you are feeling more energetic Almancil has a great go-karting circuit. There are a few great watersport parks within easy driving distance.

Cliff Richards has his home and vineyard close by and opens it for tours to taste his wine and see how its made, he also eats in the local restaurants so listen out for him, we're all going on a . . . . . . . . . etc etc.. We make sure none of his music is left on the iPod we leave for our guests.
