The Algarve region

The holiday Villa is based in the Algarve 20 kilometres to the East of Faro and 15 minutes West of Tavira. The Location is absolutely ideal for visiting anywhere along the Algarve coast and also into South Western Spain. The East Algarve is not as commercialised as the West Algarve and is ideal for golf and beaches.

The summers are long and hot and even during the winter months daytime weather is suitable for short sand t shirts. The evenings and nights can get a little chilly but with an open fire and underfloor heating the villa is ideal for year round use!


Alfandanga itself is a very small collection of houses but there is a small mini market, café, cash point and petrol station all within a 2 minute walk down the track from the house.

A little further away are Moncarapacho (5 mins by car) and the fishing village of Fuseta (2 mins by car). Both of these villages offer a wide range of restaurants serving fresh local produce, bars and shops.

Fuseta is a traditional Portuguese harbour and has its own small grocery and fish market. There are many bars and restaurants to sample and enjoy the atmosphere of authentic Portugal.

The main towns of Olhao and Tavira are approx 10 minutes away by car and beyond Olhao is Faro with its major city facilities including of course the airport (20 mins from the house). Olhao markets are something to behold for any food lovers.

Local Attractions:

Beach – only 2 minutes down the road in Fuseta you can choose from either the inlet beach at the end of the fishing harbour or take a water taxi over to the main beach.

Golf – The Colina Verde 9 hole golf course is 2 minutes away by car. The more challenging courses of Monte Rei, Quinta da Ria and Cima and Benamor are approx 20 minutes.

Boating – you can moor boats for free in the harbour at Fuseta. There is a huge choice of waterways and of course the sea to navigate.

Bird-watching – The Ria Formosa Nature Reserve is right on the doorstep at Fuseta where a huge variety of birds and other wildlife can be found.

Cycling – The Algarve Cycle path runs straight past the front door where you can cycle all the way to Vila real in the East and Lagos in the West.

"A perfect place to chill by the pool with the family"

It was an absolute delight to stay at Casa dos Caracois and we really enjoyed our relaxed evenings, when the temperature is just perfect, chilling with a glass of wine on the outdoor terrace by the pool. The location is excellent having a secluded feel to it yet been just five minutes from the fishing village and all of the local shops, have the best product. The villa was perfect for three families allowing enough space for us to have privacy yet the shared areas being fantastic for getting together and enjoying each other’s company. The villa is flexible and there’s more than enough through more people if needed. I would hesitate to recommend a visit to this delightful Villa.
