This delightful villa enjoys a secluded, countryside location just outside of the popular resort of Almancil. The chic neighbouring resorts of Quinta do Lago and Vale do Lobo are within easy reach, with a number of excellent restaurants, sport and leisure facilities and a superb beach also within a short drive.
This villa is in the beautiful area of Figueiral, outside Almancil, yet just minutes by car to many amenities and excellent beaches.
There are restaurants to suit all tastes and budgets in the area, from simple local Portuguese to quality International cuisine, plus excellent beach bars.
The closest beach is 5 minutes away by car at Quinta do Lago - just part of the fabulous sands that stretch for miles along the coast here.
This is a perfect locality to sample a cross-section of all the Algarve has to offer, from local tradition to international style.
Just to the North, Almancil is a thriving town with all manner of shops and amenities.
Two and a quarter miles south are the Buganvilia Plaza and Quinta Shopping centres, with chic fashion shops, restaurants and a nightclub. The nearest supermarket is 2 miles in the nearby resort of Almancil.
Top quality golf courses, tennis centres, horse-riding, a nature reserve, go-karting and a water-splash park are all within a 5 mile radius. Just a little further away, one can visit Vilamoura's international yacht marina, inland Loulé's colourful traditional market and Faro's historic old town.
** Almancil Go Karting**
Situated 4 kilometres from villa Irene and open all year round, the Almancil Go Karting circuit is a replica of the Jacarepagua Formula 1 circuit in Brazil. Try a 160cc or 200cc Go Kart or lift the pace with a 400cc bi-motor model. (Tel. 289 399 899)
**Vale de Lobo golf courses**
Two courses are based at Vale do Lobo. The Royal is the main course, opening with an easy par 5 after which the fairways become tighter and the greens better protected.
The par 3 ninth is the most memorable. The green lies on a peninsula built into an artificial lake and is played at different angles depending on which tee you choose to use.
The sixteenth hole is possibly the most photographed in Europe. It is 210 metres long and crosses two ravines. Teeing off on a cliff top is an exhilarating experience and somewhat nerve-racking on a blustery day.
The other course is the Ocean Course, which is no less difficult and equally scenic.
