This property is in an outstanding position and great for those who wish to have a taste of the real Portugal
The Algarve region
The weather is great most of the year (average yearly temperature 22.3C). April/May/October/November its in the lower 20sC, June/July/August/September upper 20sC - 35C or more. If you are lucky you can lay on the beach enjoying the sun on Christmas day.
The area is filled with history. Why not go and explore some of the beautiful villages and towns that Portugal has to offer. You can visit the most westerly point in Europe - Cape St Vincent, see the natural springs in the Monchique mountains, visit some of the town markets such as nearby Loulé and by the way Lisbon is only 2.5 hours away by car for the those who want to go a bit further, or Spain at 1.5 - 2 hours away.
The property is approximately 12km from both Silves, a historic market town and Portimão a busy fishing port with shops, restaurants and beaches. Further inland you can take a drive to Caldas de Monchique where the regions mineral water comes from, you can take your own bottles and fill up for free. There are lots of restaurants dotted around the area and Monchique is a popular location for the locals on Sundays to come and eat Frango com Piri Piri (Chicken Piri Piri - one of my personal favourite Portuguese dishes). One of regions best golf courses is about a 25 minute drive away. Just opened Hideaway Lakes Portugal - Algarve Carp Fishing, just 10 minutes drive away
