It is is well suited to keen golfers, beach-goers, surfers, hill walkers, bird watchers and lovers of the outdoor life. Horse riding and other activities are also available nearby.

Lagos is the main town in the region and is only an hour's drive away from Faro airport and 15 mins away from the villa. It has a large choice of restaurants/bars/shops and charming pedestrianised cobbled streets, displaying typical Moorish architecture. There is also a marina where big game fishing/dolphin watching/ boat hire is available. Cape St. Vincent, the most s.westerly point in Europe is only 30 mins drive.

There are dozens of impressive, quiet and quaint sandy beaches in the area, with the West Coast surfing beaches also close by. The Algarve boasts a climate similar to California, with 300 days of sunshine every year. The summers are pleasantly hot and the winters are bright and mild. Just one word describes the weather year-round, EXCELLENT!
