Activity and Interests

Car: recommended

Golf: Golf!Golf! Golf! This is golf heaven with more than 40 golf courses around. Just less than 5min. drive away is Alto Golf (18 holes); Boa Vista Golf (18 holes), home of the Henry Cooper Classic, is 15min drive away. Penina Championship Resort (3 courses, one 18-hole) is 10 min drive away. Also Palmares, Morgado, Oceânico O'Connor Jr.! We can offer a 20 % discount at Alto Golf, 10% at Penina and discounts on golf a rentals shop. September is prime golf time - the weather is usually very pleasant. If you're interested in golf, ask us more details!

Special interest holidays:

Formula 1 circuit about 20 min away. Alvor has a large beach surrounded by expansive dunes which lead to a calm estuary. Here you can take kite-surfing lessons, or just observe the colorful kite surfers and take advantage of the extensive, new boardwalks that provide pleasant access to the dunes and beach. Come here for a holiday out of season: a typical day in April is similar to an English summer day - with the garden looking its best.

Average day-time temps - June:18º, July:20º, August:20-28º, Sept:19-25º.

Another idea: take a day trip to Lisbon or Seville, Spain! If you have special interests, please let us know: nearly all activities are available and we can get information for you.

Coast/beach: We feel privileged to live near one of the most beautiful beaches in the coastal Praia da Rocha stretch, just an easy walk down the road from the estate. There are over 70 beaches listed in the Algarve - typically, the south coast beaches, with calmer waves and gentle slopping shoreline, are very nice for wading, beach combing, safe swimming and sunbathing. The west coast is exciting, wild and excellent for surfing, body boarding, with dramatic cliffs and landscape.

Distances: 40 min/65km to Faro airport. The property is between the picturesque village of Alvor (3km) and the city of Portimão (1km). The city of Silves, once the capital of the Algarve, with its Moorish Castle and medieval streets is 16km from Portimão.Monchique mountain village,only 26km,is like traveling to another world- green forested landscapes and vistas of the coastal towns below. Stop at Monchique Spring Water Spa on the way up. Easy sightseeing car trip: Sagres, Europe's most southwestern point.

Further Details: Many restaurants and convenience stores, shops, banks, all nearby. The village of Alvor is like a quaint shopping center, but there are many others around (Retail Park, Aqua, Guia). Continente shopping center is 15 mins walk away (supermarket, ATM machines, shops, food court, cinema). There are several water slide parks - a bus for 'Slide and Splash' is available, stopping just down the road from us. Other activities available in the area: windsurfing, surf, para-gliding, skydiving, kite-surfing, horseback riding, cycling, hiking, dolphin watching, kayaking, jet skiing, diving, snorkeling, paragliding, coastal tours, sailing, fishing. The Formula 1 race track is 20 min away. You will find all the details in a Welcome Folder upon arrival, but fell free to ask us for more details! We have secured discounts in some of the nearby restaurants, which we recommend (info also available in Welcome Folder). We can also offer discounts in services and shops in the area; and arrange for grocery shopping, meal preparation and/or picnic packing.
