The Algarve region
The Algarve is an all-year-round holiday destination due to its long hot summers, mild winters and low rainfall. On average there are 3,000 hours of sunshine each year!
Great people, stunning beaches, breathtaking scenery, fabulous food at reasonable prices - it's not surprising that people return to the Algarve again and again.
Mild winters and all year round sunshine make the area perfect for golfers. There are more than 20 first class golf courses within an hour's drive and 2 excellent courses are right on the doorstep - Parque da Floresta Golf is just 15 minutes away and BoaVista Golf is under 5 minutes' drive!
The Western Algarve area is a region of beautiful coasts, valleys and mountains. It offers much to do and see, and many unforgettable visits and trips are within easy access by modern highways or via scenic roads less travelled.
- A visit along the picturesque coastline to the historical Cape of Sagres, where Prince Henry “the Navigator” established the XIV century Sagres Nautical School. Splendid panoramic views of the sea, rocks, white cliffs, white, sandy beaches and abundant flora amidst the famous Algarvian triad of almond, kerob and fig (almond trees blossom in January/February).
- Visit the spectacular Bravura Dam in the Espinhaco de Cao mountain range, only 15 minutes away.
- Visit the historical town of Lagos 6km to the east, built inside 14th century castle walls, with its fortresses, narrow streets and typical quarters, contrasting sharply with the town’s modern architecture, as embodied by the marine parade and its adjacent marina offering a variety of activities. Those that enjoy night-life won't be disappointed with Lagos, as there are so many restaurants and bars to choose from. A lovely palm-fringed esplanade by the waterfront is connected by a foot-bridge to the marina at the other side, from where you can take a boat trip to see the grottos and dolphins.
- Restaurants, shopping centres, various sports (including golf), daily boat trips, are some of the many entertainments that the visitor can enjoy in Praia da Luz and surrounding areas.
Praia da Luz
Luz has everything you need within walking distance. There is a lovely promenade which winds down to the picturesque beach area where water sports are available and lots of restaurants and cafes. Several locations of historical interest can be found nearby, including the Roman ruins within the village, and the local church which is worth a visit. The village has retained much of its original charm.
With Lagos on your doorstep, other entertainment is only minutes away. The local guide, issued monthly, will inform visitors of festivals as diverse as the yearly food and confectionery fair, the summer jazz festival, sporting events, arts exhibitions (both ongoing and seasonal), and many other activities. Gastronomic variety and delights abound, not least centred around the fish market which provides local restaurants with an enviable variety of fish and seafood.
Close to the villa you will find several beautiful unspoilt beaches, with opportunities to partake in any of the following - sailing, water skiing, boat hire, wind surfing, fishing, flying, walking, cycling, horse riding, golf, tennis, scuba diving, mountain biking, bowling, hang-gliding, nature trails and surfing
Other attractions close by include historic sites, museums, Lagos Zoo, theatre, cinema, theme park, grotto visits, sports centre, Zoo Marine for dolphin/whale/seal shows and water parks such as Aqualand and Slide and Splash. The villa is also close to shopping areas, many fantastic restaurants and supermarkets.

"Great location, great price - great place!"
Four of us stayed here in July for a couple of nights at the beginning of our holiday and we had a great time. The villa had absolutely everything we needed during our stay and it was great to have the barbecue and swimming pool for the evenings! Comfortable bedrooms and plenty of space for all of us. Location wise it's a short walk down to the beach, about 10 minutes, with two little supermarkets very close by with everything you could need. It's a very quiet, peaceful area too.
A very straightforward rental and a pleasant landlord made this an easy, great value choice for me, and definitely somewhere I'd stay again.
So pleased you enjoyed your stay. Hope to see you again at Villa Olivia next year.

Tim and Teresa, we are so glad you had a great holiday and enjoyed "Lily's Pad" (or Villa Olivia as our daughter calls it) as much as we do. Our family has always enjoyed the beautiful location of the villa which despite being peaceful as you say, is within walking distance of so many great facilities. It's wonderful to hear that our guests love it too. Thanks for the points about the car hire. We will alert future guests in case they are considering that hire company. Hope to see you at the villa again in future. Deborah
