Casa Pequena is situated within close distant to a number of golf courses, the nearest of which is Boavista - about 8 minutes drive.
Boavista Golf Club offers superb facilities in a uniquely sophisticated yet relaxed atmosphere . This impressive 18 Hole Championship golf course was designed by Howard Swan MSc. With two distinctive sections the course offers a variety of holes commencing with the welcoming first hole, a meandering downhill par 4, bordered by beautiful sub-tropical landscaping leading to harmoniously designed properties.
The signature hole on the outward nine is the stunning par 4, 7th hole set against a glorious backdrop of the Atlantic ocean with exhilarating panoramic views extending from Praia da Luz round to with the hills at Monchique creating a spectacular backdrop.
Praia da Luz: You will find that the town of Praia da Luz is a generally a lot quieter and more peaceful than many of the other coastal resorts on the Algarve, such as nearby Lagos or Alvor which is some 30 minutes away, so it is perfect for family holidays or just a relaxing break. Luz bay is protected to the East by the famous Rocha Negra ( "black rock" ) cliff, a product of the Monchique region's volcano lava flow from some 150 million years ago. To the West is the old 16th century fort built to ward off pirates but now is a smart restaurant which has some spectacular views from its terraces.
Between the two landmarks is Luz's lovely, long sandy beach which is overlooked by the town itself. An exceptional patterned cobbled promenade ( Avenida dos Pescadores ) runs from just below the pretty Church of Nossa Senhora da Luz ( Our Lady of the Light ) along the whole of the seafront to the cluster of beach bars. The promenade is normally busy with many craft stalls during high season and there are also several cafe / bars, restaurants and gift shops.
You will find there are good water sports facilities in Praia da Luz, such as scuba diving, snorkelling, waterskiing, windsurfing, a sailing school, paddleboats, boat trips and from 2011 Luz has its own Bowling club.
Burgau: Burgau is an idyllic fishing village and has a lovely sandy beach backed by cliffs and with narrow charming and sloping streets towards the beach, it is a popular town all year round. Check out the Burgau Beach bar for lunch or dinner with an Ocean view or visit some of the smaller restaurants in the town with a wide variety of food. At high tide, you will have spectacular waves and it is know by the surfers for great waves.
Lagos: the bustling fishing and market town of Lagos is 10 minutes drive from the villa. Shopping - the narrow streets have many tiny shops and the town has a market. The modern marina offers boat trips to the natural tunnels, arches & grottoes – well worth the trip, or a days sea fishing. At night a large selection of 46 bars offer an evening for everyone ranging from Jazz to Karaoke. The main square has a nightclub.
