The Algarve region
The Algarve is one of Europe's favourite holiday destinations with 300 days of sunshine each year and excellent sandy beaches. There are a variety of other attractions to make for a special holiday. From family fun such as the nearby water parks, go-karting, and horse riding through to the traditional Portuguese towns like Monchique and Tavira, there is loads to suit all tastes. And of course, the numerous golf courses inlcude some of Europe's finest.
There is a wide variety of fantastic food throughout the area - choose sophisticated international dining in the exclusive resorts of Quinta do Lago, Vale do Lobo and the Vilamoua marina, or authentic Portuguese cuisine including mouth-watering seafood.
Nearby Loule is a bustling traditional market town just 20 minutes drive from Faro airport.
The town centre boasts numerous boutiques as well as modern supermarkets for everyday convenience. The colourful daily local food market in centre of town really comes to life on Saturay morning with all manner of local produce, leather goods and clothes.
There are lots of restaurants in Loule and Almancil serving genuine local specialities and seafood providing really excellent value. In addition, the vast number of eating options near the coast are all within 15 minutes - everything from Michelin standard international cuisine to Argentinian, Indian, Chinese or Thai !!
As the capital of the central Algarve, Loule hosts spectacular Carnivals in Spring and August, and music festivals, dance festivals and other arts events throughout the year. The beaches at Quinta do Lago and Vale do Lobo are 20 minutes by car. Water Parks and Zoomarine dolphin show a short drive away, and of course the world famous golf courses of the Algarve are all.
Loule is an excellent base form which to explore the entire Algarve. Nowhere is more than an hour's drive - even the most westerly point at Sagres. The cultural centres of Tavira and Monchique are just a short drive, as are some of the more secluded beaches to the West of Albufeira which are well worth a visit.

"Fabulous, large villa with all you could wish for..."
We have visited Casa da Vista Magica four times now and always have a wonderful time there. The villa is ideally located just a 1km from Loule, which has fantastic restaurants, but in a quiet, rural setting with breathtaking views from the long balconys on each floor. The villa is huge, spread over three floors with a large swimming pool, garden and games room with bar, full sized snooker table and table tennis. There is plenty of space and plenty to do at the villa - we did'nt want to leave! The owner is extremely friendly and helpful. We hope to go back again, as it is a wonderful holiday for families.

"Everything the whole family wanted and more..."
The villa was perfect; cleanliness, comfort and villa maintainance were all superb.
The villa provided plenty of entertainment for the whole family which consisited of 6 adults and 2 children aged 2 and 9, due to the comfort of the villa and the beautiful grounds we all had a wonderfully relaxing break and would all like to return in the future!!!
The owner was very forth coming in advance with local information and advice which was very helpful and appreciated (his directions to the villa and restraunt recommendations were brilliant)
Car required as its a 10 minuite drive to the nearest town, Loule.
Strongly recommend this villa for a wonderful family holiday
