The Algarve region
The Central Algarve area of Portugal is famous for its excellent climate and friendly people. Whilst the area has become famous for its magnificent golf courses, the region also offers a great contrast between the golden sandy beaches and stunning rural countryside. It boasts many historic attractions in its towns and villages and a dazzling array of flora and fauna, making a perfect holiday destination for all whether its fun in the sun with the family, a golf break with friends or walking/cycling in the surrounding countryside the Algarve has it all.
Marbel Sol is situated on Rua da Alemanha in central Vilamoura adjacent to Pinhal Golf course. The Marina (15 minutes) and beaches (20 minutes) are just a short walk, or why not take the tourist train which passes by the front of the complex and is a great way to see around the resort and get your bearings, especially for those without a car.
You can hop on and off the train all day for around 3 Euros. Vilamoura itself offers a wide variety of sport and entertainment in addition to the famous golf courses which are a must for any keen golfer. Close to the complex is a tennis school and around the Marina numerous offerings of boat trips for fishing, dolphin watching or just cruising. There are also Jetski's for hire. Back to the golf there is a crazy golf course which is great for the kids and has a Roman theme which befits its location adjacent to the Roman ruins and Museum. Slightly further afield, and very popular for those on a family break, are the excellent Go Karting track in nearby Almancil, and the Zoomarine water park in Guia which is just 10km from neighbouring Albufeira on the EN125 motorway. For those who enjoy shopping try the "Algarve shopping" centre, also on the EN125 in Guia, where designer shops and boutiques tempt the traveller into parting with their Euro's for that holiday treat! In the evening Vilamoura's bars and restaruants provide food and entertainment to cater for all tastes and budgets. For those feeling lucky there is Vilamoura's Casino, or take a stroll around the Marina and sample the atmosphere of this delightful resort.
