The Algarve region
Lagos, which is just a few minutes away, is the cultural and entertainment city in the area. With its cobbled streets, brand new marina, wonderful beaches and restaurants too many to count, it is a great destination for days and evenings out. Praia da Luz, a few minutes' drive in the other direction, offers all the advantages of a tourist resort but without the crowded feeling of other Algarve seaside areas. There are numerous beaches and coves nearby, The surrounding villages offer a good variety of local cuisine away from the tourist crowd, and definitely at non-tourist prices!
For holidaymakers, it offers the ideal location to relax and enjoy the 3000 hours of sunshine per hour that the Algarve offers whilst being very close to the historic town of Lagos and the Blue Flag beaches of the Algarve. If you like watersports, there are a number of water sport centres within about 10-15 minutes' drive and golf at Boavista Championship golf course (guests receive a 25% discount on normal golf fees) and the newly opened Palmares golf course are within 15 minutes' drive. Horseriding, rambling, cycling, fishing and even car/bike racing (at the newly opened Autodromo) are the same distance so there's plenty to do if you get fed up with lazing by the pool!
The nearest supermarkets are less than 10 minutes away as is the marina which is a lovely place to lunch or just watch the world go by.
