The Algarve / Central Algarve region
The Algarve is located on the south coast of Portugal and it is renowned for its mild and sunny climate, its 100 miles of glorious sandy beaches with their stunning rock formations and its excellent sports facilities.
The tourist season extends from March to October and it really only quiets down in the dead of Winter. Even then, there are many days when its warm and sunny enough to sunbathe or sit outside at the pavement cafes and enjoy the balmy weather.
There are numerous golf courses along the coast, a lot of them only a 15 minutes drive from the Villa. A good resource for golf - www.portugalgolf.pt.
There are many leisure activities and excursions.These include scuba-diving, several water fun parks, fishing, sailing, jeep safaris, Zoomarine, bicycle and moped hire, etc. A good resource for what to do & to see - www.portugal-live.net. or www.algarve-portal.com.
The Albufeira / Oura Beach area
Once a little fishing village, ALBUFEIRA still retains much of its charm with many pretty cobbled streets leading to the town square and fisherman's beach. These narrow lanes offer a wide selection of good restaurants and bars, while the main square comes alive at night with live bands providing entertainment in high season.
The new area of Albufeira, where Villa Victoria is located, consists of PRAIA DA OURA (Oura beach), AREIAS DE SAO JOAO and MONTECHORO and provides a lively atmosphere. Through the centre runs the famous "Strip" which is lined with gift shops, pavement cafes, bars and restaurants.
The OURA BEACH, with its popular water sports attractions (water-skiing, parasailing, jet skis, banana boat rides, etc.), beachfront restaurants and bars, is just a short 10 minute walk away.
The transport links to the old town are excellent with frequent bus services or the "Blue Train", which is a tourist train running from the "Strip". You can also walk to the old town via the beach and a cliff top walk, with some stunning views of both Albufeira and further down the coast towards Vilamoura.

Just back from a week with my 21 year old daughter. The studios are perfect. They don't have loads of mod-cons but they do have what you need to get buy - fridge, couple of rings on a hotplate, microwave, plenty of wardrobe space. The pool is a good size and we were lucky enough to have it to ourselves most days. Property very easy to find and less than 5 mins from the strip with loads of lovely restaurants and friendly bars. Lovely Beach is 10 mins walk away. Tourist train every 20 mins to Old Town. Large supermarket (good prices) 10 mins walk away to stock up. All-in-all a great week in a great property.
