The Algarve region
The Algarve is situated in the South of Portugal and is an area of spectacular beaches, sunshine, food and plenty of activities. The beaches along the Algarve coast vary from the flatter expanses of the east to rocky coves of the centre and further to the west, dramatic cliffs leading to the westerly point of Cape st Vincent.
Now with the motorway links across the Algarve the west coast surfing beaches are more accessible being about 1 1/2 hrs to 2 hrs away.
With 300 days of sunshine the weather is a great attraction and gives you the opportunity to take advantage of what's on offer.
Many sports available, tennis, renowned golf courses, riding, water-sports, fishing and for the family a choice of water parks, zoo marine, Jeep safaris, dolphin excursions, with many beaches and both vilamoura marina and Albufeira marina offering water ski, jet ski, parasailing and power boat trips.
For thoses wanting to see a different side of the Algarve you can travel inland where you can find history and un touched villages. The castle at Silves, Monchique mountains and the Barragem (the dam) are just a few sights.
You will be spoilt for choice when it comes to food, plenty of fresh fish, char grilled meats.
Boliqueime is just 1km away from the house making it an easy stroll to refresh at one of two coffee shops, pick up some groceries from one of the small supermarkets or just take in the scenery of this quaint village with its cobbled streets and whitewased houses with a central square dominated by its church.
Bolqueime amenities include a Hairdressers, Post Office, Bank, Supermarkets, Chemist, Tapas Bar, Chicken Piri Piri restaurant, Butchers and nearby a Launderette.
Drive North of Boliqueime through picturesque rural countryside and hamlets reflecting the old Portugal. With the motorway and the En125, access is very central to all the Algarve. Vilamoura is 10mins, here you will find several golf courses, tennis and the marina.
Albufeira is just 15mins away with it's Fishermans Beach and numerous tourist attractions. Algarve Shopping and cinema is again only 15 mins with Zoo marine and the Big One Water slide park just a little further on. An English speaking riding school is at Quinta do Lago, 25 mins, with its pine forests and exclusive golf courses.
The nearest beach is Olhos D'Agua a small cove with fishing boats, restaurants and handicrafts but there is a wealth of beaches to explore moving along to the west of Albufeira there is the marina with various activities and along from there a choice of superb family friendly beaches worth exploring.
