Sport/Leisure time:
In a region with such a large ocean front, the Algarve offers almost every activity you can think of related to (the use of) water. Also for the ones who are not particularly keen to be in or around water, there are plenty of activities to spend a wonderful time in the Algarve! Read below a wide selection of leisure- and sport activities : Fishing, Swimming, Cycling, Golf, Horse Riding, Jeep Safaris, Mountain Biking, Wind and Kite Surfing, Diving, Tennis, Walking, Jet ski, Parasailing, Water Ski, Sailing, (Lawn)Bowling, Deep-Ocean Fishing, Karting, Dolphin- and Bird Watching, Speedboat-, Catamaran- and Sailing Boat Rentals, Ultralight Flights, Mini-Golf, etc. Water parks, zoos, family parks (Zoo Marine, Aquashow and Krazy World) as well as several museums invite to trips. Further interesting activities, Gypsy markets, exhibitions and other important information for the holiday-maker you can find in the weekly magazine 'Algarve Resident' and 'Viva Algarve' (available at supermarkets).


Shopping in Portimao:
Portimao, the Algarve’s second biggest city, offers everything to make a shopping heart beat faster. From small boutiques, crafts and art shops to shopping malls, there’s something of interest for everyone (except for some men maybe). In the historical centre there is a huge pedestrian area, narrow streets and several squares invite to wander around in good atmosphere. The kilometres long boulevard in front of the famous Praia da Rocha beach is packed with all sorts of shops. Along the Arade River, going land inwards from the Portimao Marina (harbour), another kilometres long boulevard is currently created, linking the Marina and Praia da Rocha with the historical centre. Several shopping malls, Lidl and Plus are to be found along the double lane access road to Praia da Rocha. Spread throughout the city, smaller supermarkets, butchers and bakeries complete the wide range of shopping possibilities Portimao has to offer. Almost all shops are open 7 days a week.


Golf:
Golf is definitively the most popular sport in the Algarve, no wonder when realising the climatological conditions all year round and the exceptional beauty of lay outs (most of them by famous international golf architects) and surroundings. Read below a selection of 4 excellent golf courses in your region out of the Algarve' approximately 35 golf courses; Palmares Course: the breathtaking scenery can be appreciated from most of the course, with views over the Alvor river estuary, beaches and the bay of Lagos. There are 5 authentic links holes amongst the dunes close to the ocean exposed to the prevailing winds. Other holes throughout hillsides and valleys full of trees. Penina Course: it has hosted the Portuguese open 8 times and is built on flattish parkland terrain with fairways lined by countless trees and with tricky water hazards. Also several long par-3 and par-4 holes, requiring both length and accuracy. Alto Course: it boasts a majestic site overlooking the ocean and with views inland towards the Monchique hills. Some 10.000 trees were planted on the course and have attracted a large variety of birds. The course is not overly difficult and can be enjoyed by golfers of all standards. Golf do Morgado; recently opened, almost a 1000 acres, making it the biggest golf course in the Algarve. Beautiful scenery, pure nature, no villas/apartments but 6 lakes, hills, valleys, 1000's of olive, carob and fig trees, the unspoilt Algarve!
Rooms open to patios. Bathrooms include a combined bath/shower unit and bidets.

One week in March
We have just been back to this house for the 5th time - and that says it all. We feel like it is just coming back to your own holiday house. The house is very popular and rented out almost all year round for a good reason.

Fantastic house
Really great villa, spacious, comfortable, huge gardens, well equipped with everything needed for a relaxing holiday. We visited in February and were very lucky with great weather, we had the pool heated and kids were able to swim every day (although it was still pretty cool). Location is handy... 10-15 minutes to supermarkets, beach etc although nothing withing walking distance so a car is definitely needed.

5/5 Excellent

Amazing villa!
We had a fantastic week here with our two children aged 8 and 4 . We paid to have the pool heated which was well worth it even in August. The pool was great - lots of pool toys as well which was a bonus! Lots of space to relax and cook. The gardens were amazing, lots of beautiful plants and mature trees. The property is so secure for children with high hedges and gated so you weren’t ever worried that they could wander off! Inside the villa the rooms are large, there are spacious bedrooms and it was so clean and comfortable. We actually didn’t want to leave the villa on some days! It is only 20mins drive from Lagos which is worth a visit , the sea kayaking is great there. Only 10 mins drive from plenty of supermarkets in Portimao. Overall we had a fantastic holiday and would definitely recommend to others!

5/5 Excellent
