The Algarve region
The Algarve offers 160 km of gorgeous, golden, sandy beaches, rocky coves, clear waters, rugged cliffs and enchanting grottoes. The South of Portugal was the last place to gain independence from the Moors in 1292, conquered by the King Dom Afonso III and even today traces of the Moorish presence are visible in the unique terraces, chimneys and whitewashed villas.
Despite the obvious influence of tourism, a short drive inland reveals the true Algarve where life goes on much as it has for many centuries. This brightly coloured and verdant region is filled with orange groves, almond trees in blossom, carob trees and fragrant pines as well as some cork farms which are still in operation today. For the sports enthusiasts, the Algarve has ideal conditions and top class facilities; the golf courses are superb and have a highly prized reputation.
Watersports are second to none with the West coast offering the best surfing, windsurfing and kitesurfing conditions. Above all, the Algarve is a children's haven with several exciting water parks, 'Zoomarine' sealife centre, horse riding centres and plenty of fun on the beaches! Whatever your preference, you will find your personal paradise in the Algarve.
The property is located in the province of Olhos d'Agua a fisherman's village situated between Albufeira and Vilamoura. The nearest shops, cashpoint and chemist are approx 200m away. The village and its surrounding areas boast numerous restaurants many of which serve traditional Portuguese food and offer a peaceful relaxing atmosphere whilst the hustle and bustle of Albufeira remains just a 5 minute drive away. Taxi rank and bus stop 5 minute walk away, Albufeira is approx 5euros by taxi.
The stunning views across the warm Atlantic Ocean will keep you occupied for hours, as they progress through the spectrum from dusk til dawn.
