The Algarve region
The Algarve is well known for its fabulous beaches and inviting climate. In the summer the area is hot with a wonderful breeze from the Atlantic. In the spring and autumn the climate is ideal for golf, tennis and all holiday activities. In the winter the weather allows golf to be played all year round.
This western area of the Algarve is quieter and less developed than the big resorts nearer to Faro.

The village boasts a great selection of restaurants and bars, as well as a range of shops and supermarkets. All are within a 5-10 minute walk.
