Santa Caterina is within a 5 minute drive - here you will find a variety of local shops for your basic needs and a Sunday market once a month. A 15 minute drive will take you to the old Moorish town of Tavira on the banks of the river Gilao which inspite of some development has kept it's unique charm and identity and sense of history. There are many good shops, restaurants and an excellent daily fish and local produce market.

The Spanish border on the river Guadiana is a 30 minute drive away and has plenty of interesting places to visit and if you fancy driving to Seville the 2 hour trip is well worth the effort.
