Location description from owner

The Algarve region

The Algarve is renowned for it's stunning beaches. The nearest beach to our apartment is less than 20 minutes walk and as the crow flies, 600meters. There are plenty of activities in Albufeira, zoo marine, aqualand, slide and splash to mention a few. Plenty of day boat cruises to choose from to explore the algarve coastline and caves. The Algarve shopping center is only 5 minute taxi journey for anyone wishing to have a little retail therapy!

Our apartment is ideally positioned for golfers; just 5 minutes drive to Balaia and Pine Cliffs golf courses and 10 minutes drive to Salgados and the 6 world class courses at Vilamoura.

The Algarve is one of the premier golfing destinations in the world and has over 30 courses to choose from

Local amenities within a 2-3 walk include large Pingo Doce supermarket, bars, restaurants and taxi rank.

The Algarve weather is excellent for most of the year, giving approx. 300 days of sunshine which peaks in July and August. I have visited during the winter months and enjoyed temperatures of 18 - 21 degrees, which for us Irish and English is shorts and t-shirt weather.

The Algarve is renowned for it's award winning golden sandy beaches. Oura, Averios and Fishermans beach are about 20minutes walk from our apartment. Gale and Salgados beaches are 2 other stunning beaches nearby and are only a short taxi drive away.

Portugal is also know for its historical beauty and churches, the most famous being Fatima where 20,000 visitors go daily during the summer. There is also the walled city of Lagos built by the Romans in 200bc. It's importance was because of it's fishing and harbour and still has it's cobbled streets.

The town of Vilamoura is about a 10 minute drive from Albufeira and has over 1000 boats moored there. You can visit the Roman ruins in Vilamoura for €1.50

The marina in Albufeira has all the daily boat trips, fishing trips, dolphin watching, caves and activities to suits everyone young and old!

Areias Sao Joao

There are opportunities to enjoy all water sports, golf and horse riding.

The Zoo marine sea life centre is close by, together with a large Waterpark, Slide and Splash and the huge Algarve Shopping Centre to satisfy any 'Retail Therapy' needs!

If you want to get away from the coast for the day then a drive to Monchique and Foia (the highest point of the Algarve) is highly recommended. On the way you could visit the castle in Silves and stop for lunch of chicken Piri-Piri in the small mountain town of Monchique. It will take you less than an hour to get there.

Two large shopping centres are 'Algarve Shopping' in Guia and 'The Forum' in Faro just 20-30 minutes by car. The Algarve Shopping is a large mall which is approx. 5 minutes drive away. Taxi costs from Albufeira 10euros each way. Here you will find a variety of shops, a big supermarket, a bowling alley, a multi-screen cinema (most films are in English with Portuguese sub titles) and a food hall.

Alternative ways of exploring the Algarve are by joining one of the many jeeps that head out each day (high season) to explore the unspoilt Algarve.

There are plenty of great boat trips leaving from Albufeira every day. You can choose from a full or a half day and this can often include a trip into the caves and grottoes of the beautiful Algarvian coast line. If you fancy a drive into Spain then the border is only a 50 minute drive and Seville approx two hours depending on traffic.

As the Algarve spans a large area with wonderful sights and attractions, car hire is highly recommended to explore, but not essential as Solario is located a few minutes walk to the center of Albufeira.
