The Algarve region
Throughout the Algarve, old traditions mingle with more cosmopolitan ways of life in a landscape of outstanding natural beauty. A land of contrasts, of sheer cliffs and rolling hills and beautiful beaches. There are vast stretches of fine golden sand, extensive dunes and sandy coves backed by spectacular cliffs and rock formations all along the Algarve coast. The Algarve has much to offer the discerning traveller and there is sure to be an Algarve holiday villa to suit your particular tastes and holiday plans.
For those looking for activity holidays, the Algarve is one of Europe’s premier golfing destinations whilst the tennis schools offer fantastic facilities. Water sports are second to none with waterskiing, scuba-diving, big game fishing and dolphin spotting trips available at most beach resorts.
Accommodation ranges from large luxury holiday villas in Vale do Lobo, complete with private pools to smart apartments and townhouses and more modest, rustic cottages. There is something to suit everyone's tastes and needs whether you prefer to be close to the beach, in luxury golf resorts or nestled in rolling countryside or traditional villages.
Villa Rocco is situated in Valados, just outside the historic town of Loulé. Loulé has a selection of shops, traditional bars, restaurants and a supermarket. On Saturdays there is a street market with locals selling many items, including gifts and souvenirs. Also nearby is the village of Santa Barbara de Nexe with a few shops, bars, chemist and bank. It is less than a ten minute drive to the town of Almancil, which is known for its remarkable restaurants and friendly locals. The area surrounding the villa offers miles of world class golf courses, suitable for any level of player. The fabulous resort of Vale de Lobo, which has a seemingly endless, white, sandy beach, is less than a twenty minute drive. Here there are a selection of exclusive beach bars and restaurants, with live music in the evenings. A little more than a twenty minute drive takes you to the prestigious resort of Vilamoura with its stylish and sophisticated marina. It is lined with an abundant choice of pavement cafes, international restaurants and bars, as well as fabulous, designer boutiques. Excellent marine excursions leave from here, including big game fishing, charter yachts and dolphin spotting.
