We have been to the Algarve on holiday for many years. It was our dream to own a property there. The apartment is situated in a great location, 10 minutes from Albufeira with the bars, shops, entertainment and beaches. Zoomarine is a kilometre away, fantastic place for both adults and children. There are also 2 waterparks nearby. Gale beach is only 5mins away with is breathtaking views and beach restaurants. Numerous golf courses to choose from. Easy access to the motorway. 30 mins from Faro airport.

The best beaches that the Algarve has to offer are within 10 mins drive down minor roads. As well as the lengthy Praia de Gale (stretching westwards towards Armacao de Pera) with its sports facilities snack bars and restaurants there are many secluded sandy coves with sculptured sandstone cliffs and azure sea, which have Lifeguard cover during the season. For those who like more hustle and bustle Albufeira is less than 15 mins away with its famous marina, historic old town and even more beaches!


To fully enjoy you holiday in Guia car hire is recommended. Rates on the Algarve are very competitive and there are numerous reputable car hire companies with facilities at Faro airport – (30 minutes away). Alternatively, locally arranged private transfers at reasonable rates contact owner for details. Guia is easy to find and lies just south of the A22 motorway. The magnificent beaches are less than 10 mins drive away and facilities like Zoomarine and Algarve Shopping are in Guia.


Given the proximity of the motorway most of the western and Central Algarve is less than an hour away. Nearby you will find the superb coastal facilities and beaches. Albufeira is just down the road as is the nearest of the many golf courses. Historical Silves, the hills of Monchique and places of interest like Faro and Vilamoura are within easy reach. Algarve Shopping, the Zoomarine Park and well known water parks are nearby. There is something for every one of all ages!

Further Details:

Famous for its range of authentic restaurants, all the facilities in the village of Guia are within easy walking distance. With its 27 restaurants (at the last count!) and various bars Guia is a great place in which to wine and dine. Nearby you will find the Algarve villa of Sir Cliff Richard and his famous vineyard. In the village is a small supermarket, newsagents (with UK press) a butchers, bakers, wine shop, post office, chemists, hairdressers, internet café, DVD Video hire and snack bars. There is a small local market, banks with cash machines and a medical centre within 50 yards. Although the village is typical Portuguese all are made welcome by truly friendly and helpful locals. All the facilities are nearby when needed and in the meantime you can simply relax and soak up the sun away from the hustle and bustle of tourist hotspots.

Guia is thought to have existed since Roman times. Its Arab name was Alfontes. However, it is really the later Christian links are the strongest. The site of the Chapel of Nossa Srª da Guia is a place where the Virgin Mary is thought, by local custom to have appeared. This was great draw for Pilgrims and gave rise to the Guia Fair held annually from 7th to 9th October.

The 17th century village church is an interesting building with a simple carved alter, a selection of 17th and 18th century statues and some famous azulejo tile pictures. There are numerous other fine buildings, places of interest and historical sites within easy reach.

Beyond the village are tiny hamlets nestling in green countryside, vineyards and citrus groves. The coast lies to the south and inland there is an interesting hinterland with more villages and hamlets to explore. Well know centres like Lagos, Portimao, Silves (with its Moorish Castle), Albufeira, Faro and Vilamoura can all be reached easily. In the distance you can see the mountains of Monchique with its famous spa.
