Location description from owner

The Algarve region

Algarve Shopping - Guia-Albufeira. Possibly, during your journey from Faro airport, you have already driven past this major shopping mall along the National Road EN125. On a rainy day (if there is any ?) and about 30 minutes from your apartment you can visit Algarve Shopping in Guia/Albufeira, right opposite the Makro and with lots of free parking space above ground as well as in the giant underground parking. In Algarve Shopping you will find a multitude of shops, the possibly largest supermarket you have ever seen, the Continente where you can buy everything you may require, but also fashion shops like Zara. The top floor is one big eating area with lots of restaurants, bakeries, coffee-shops, KFC and the like, but also for a quick bite/roll this is the place to be. If the weather is really bad – it does happen sometime - you can see a film in one of the 4 cinemas. You will be amazed by the price of a ticket! Aqua Shopping - Portimão.In the northern part of Portimao. Near to the large general hospital, you can find the recently built Aqua shopping centre. Very luxurious and all the modern/fashionable brands are available. Huge underground (free) parking and elevators will take you to the desired floor. A phrase from another site: “Covering a total floor area of 47,250 m² spread over three levels ( making it the biggest in the Algare ) , Aqua Portimão features a shopping gallery of 35,500 m², attached to a Jumbo hypermarket and offering 117 stores, nine mid-sized units and 21 restaurants. All the facilities you would expect, Post Office, ATM, Baby facilities, etc.. It also includes a three-level underground parking area with 1,800 spaces”.Close to this new and modern shopping building are old factory chimneys where you can see the storks build their nest, lay their eggs and raise and feed their own children. This can also be seen from the balcony of your apartment. Storks nestle there as well. Young storks are being fed quite close to you. Villages - Ferragudo. Opposite the apartment and visible from the lounge, kitchen and bedroom, lies the village Ferragudo on the other side of the river. A lovely unspoiled authentic fishermans village. A small village with a small tidal harbor and many good fish restaurants along the boulevard. The village was built against the slope of a hill with the church as central point. From here you have a very nice view on the Arade river, the Atlantic and, of course, Portimao with your flat on the top floor. Every 4 weeks there is a bric-a-brac market in Ferragudo. Here you will find all kinds of second hand stuff at very reasonable prices (after negotiations!). The village square has a very special atmosphere with lots of terraces, tabacconists and small shops. A stroll through the small and narrow streets of Ferragudo will make you enjoy the beautiful Algarve even more. Beaches like Praia Grande, Pintadinho, Praia dos Caneiros with the famous beach restaurant will leave an impression for life. Monchique. The Monchique village , or in full, Serra de Monchique, is just 20 minutes away from your apartmenrt. Monchique is a must see village and aready the winding road to the village, with lots of handycraft shops and restaurants, is very attractive. The market village is especially known because of the very high location and most impressive views. The highest part of the mountain is the township Foia where there are even pick-nick tables and places where you can drink the natural water from the wells of which people say that the water has a healing effect against many illnesses. Caldas de Monchique is where the old Spa is being re-vitalised; e great place to relax. Even at a night with clear sky the Monchique mountain range is impressive; you never believed that there are so many stars visible with the naked eye. Very romantic! Even more beautiful and pure nature can be seen and experienced when you drive a little further into the mountains. Ever so quiet and rough; purity to the max. The Serra de Monchique also protects the Algarve against the colder Northerly winds and stops the showers from the North. And when you are roaming around Monchique, do use the opportunity to have a delicious Frango Piri-Piri in one of the basic local restaurants. Enjoy the food, the locals and the very low prices. Portimão. After Faro, Portimao is the second largest city in the Algarve and the main commercial harbor. It also has the largest sardine-fleet of Portugal and on the boulevard, close to the ancient bridge, you can eat the best sardines ever. Walking to the South on the Boulevard (your apartment is just 100 yards from the end of it) you will encounter many small stall selling tickets for boat trips. Along the coast but also up-river, all the way to Silves. Portimao has the largest public hospital in the Algarve and all specialists are available. A private hospital can be found nearby in Alvor. The center of Portimao is constantly under renovations and all historic sites are preserved. It will take 15 minutes to walk from your apartment to the centre where there are lots of restaurants and shops. In the same amount of time you can walk to the Praia da Rocha beach and the more touristic part of the city. raia da Rocha, Just a short walk will take you to the well-known Praia da Rocha, the part of Portimao that is especially developed to attract tourism, mainly because of the great sandy beach and the impressive high rocks along the coast and boulevard. In Praia da Rocha you will find whatever a holidayer may wish to find; very many small shops, tabacconists, terraces, restaurants, bars, cafés, hotels, a casino, discos, you name it. But also here, you will find the charming traces of the Morish occupation, many hundreds of years ago. Shown in the way some houses were built, the typical chimneys on the roofs. A holiday is not complete when you have not enjoyed a dinner with a Fado performance. Fado, the typical and romantic Portuguese music. Large sandy Praia da Rocha beaches. Lively Praia da Rocha boulevard. Long Portimao boulevard. Municipal Portimao Marina with Club house. Commercial Portimao marina and harbours.

Praia da Rocha

Portimão Boulevard. Walk along the Portimão Boulevard, have a Bica (coffee) or a beer at one of the many lovely terraces and enjoy life. Although in Portuguese, do visit MercadosdePortimao. pt to see where and when the most attractive markets are.Car Rental / Car Hire. Although their is public transport in the Algarve, the possibilities are limited and do not always connect. Many people prefer to rent a car so that the Algarve with all its individual beauty can be explored to a maximum and flexability is possible. We always advise our guests to take a look at Faroairport-carrental. com for hiring a car. They have an office on Parking P4 on the airport and supply good quality cars at very competative prices. Service is king. Pick-up and return at the airport so what more do you want. They also provide a service for temporary rentals; they bring the car to your apartment and pick it up again at the end of the rental period. In just 45 minutes you drive from Faro airport to your apartment. Sandy Beaches. The nearest beach is the one at Praia da Rocha, which is also one of the largest beaches of the Algarve. Many years ago this beach was developed by building a large dam in the Ocean and at the entrance to the Arade River. Since then many apartments, hotels and shops were built and gradually the Praia da Rocha holiday village arose. Now a place to walk along the boulevard and to enjoythe livelihood , see and meet people but also to relax at the beach. Praia da Rocha is at just a 15 minutes walk from your apartment. Further West are the beaches Praia do Vau, Praia do Alemao, Praia dos Tres Irmaos and, of course, the well-know Alvor beach. To the East you can visit Ferragudos Praia Grande, a beach opposite your apartment and which can be seen from your balconies. Then there is Praia do Pintadinho and Praia dos Caneiros, where you can have an excellent gourmet lunch or dinner. Directions with coordinates to the Apartment will be sent by email.
