Loule is a charming old market town hosting the recently restored Loule Municipal Market where fresh fruit and vegetables can be bought and sold, together with fish, meat and delicatessen products, as well as other food stuffs and non-food products.
There are the remains of a castle dating back to the 12th century. This Arab castle was severely damaged by the earthquake that occurred in 1755 but within the remaining walls is a museum which explains the past grandeur of the caste. There are also several restaurants within the old castle walls.
The charismatic market town of Loule is also al thriving craft centre and is famous for its handicrafts, such as copper goods, wrought iron work, candles and clogs - a lattice of cobbled lanes unfolds and assortment of craft shops where you are free to watch skilled workers carving wood, painting pottery and making lace. Loule has many other fine shops and restaurants and also a weekly Saturday market full of bustle.
There are many festivals throughout the area which are worth visiting depending on when you are travelling. The most popular is Branca Noite (White Night) Festival held in Loule town centre which marks the end of summer. Held during the last weekend of August, everyone attending and participating wears white for the whole evening. Street entertainers, musicians, jazz bands and late night DJ's adorn the streets and shops open their doors for late night shopping, each decorating their windows in white. Museums and places of interest are free of charge for those wearing white.

22 May 2012
We stayed at Casa Tranquila with my family, ages ranging from 8yrs to 71yrs. The villa is in a lovely quiet spot on the hillside with beautiful views down to the sea. You do need some sort of transport as all amenities are on hand in Loule but not within walking distance.
The villa is very spacious, comfortable, clean and well equipped. Plenty of sunloungers around the large, clean pool. Gardens are well kept.
We would stay here again happily.
