It is an excellent base for exploring the Western Algarve as well as venturing inland to the village of Monchique and upwards to Foia, the highest point of the Algarve from where there are magnificent views of the Algarve in all directions as far as the eye can see.
Alvor is a small town full of character, with a beautiful long sandy beach and a newly developed pedestrianised area by the lagoon. It offers a particularly relaxing, laid back atmosphere with cafes and restaurants looking over the lagoon.
Lagos, approximately a 15-20 minute drive away is a larger town, again with a lovely long sandy beach. It is another town with lots of character, with cobbled streets lined with cafes and restaurants and a good selection of shops. As you enter the town from the east you will come to the marina which is a great place to sit watching the world go by and is also the base from where to pick up many of the water borne trips on offer.
The regional town of Portimão is also within easy driving distance. Although bigger and busier, it is a very pleasant place to visit, with a newly pedestrianised waterside area with cafes and restaurants looking out over the estuary. For those who like fish it is a must to sample the freshly caught sardines in one of the many fish restaurants on the quayside. The interior of the town also has some charm and is a nice place to wander in the latter part of the day once it is a little cooler.
There is a wonderful choice of activities on the Algarve and many of these are within a short drive of the villa. Waterborne sports including sailing, day cruises, dolphin watching, deep sea fishing and more can be picked up at Lagos, Alvor or Portimão. Airborne activities are available at the aerodrome at Alvor. There are a variety on offer such as scenic flights, hot air ballooning, microlight flying, sky diving and parachuting.
