Villa location

Villa Marrachinho is well positioned on the Sao Rafael Coast, overlooking the sea and just 300 yards from a beautiful cliff-backed beach. There's a typical Portuguese restaurant close by, as well as a beach bar. The neighbouring resorts of Albufeira and Guia are within a few minutes' drive. There is a host of other attractions including a choice of water slide parks, Zoomarine and dolphin show within 20 minutes' drive.

Location features

Local markets and shopping

A mini market is 10 minutes' walk from Villa Marrachinho. There is a local market every Tuesday between Praia D'Oura and the old town of Albufeira. The older part of Albufeira is ideal to get a taste of the past with narrow streets, handicraft shops and traditional Algarvean colours. The wide shopping streets and a lively atmosphere particularly in the large square create a holiday feel.

Bars and restaurants

Aside from the couple of eateries within walking distance, there are plenty more in the neighbouring resort of Albufeira. It is just 2 miles east and has a range of restaurants and bars to suit most tastes. A mile and half further is Praia D'Oura with its thriving nightlife scene. Or Guia, the renowned home of the typical Algarve dish, spicy chicken piri piri is around 4½ miles away.

Beaches

Sao Rafael Beach - one of several beautiful beaches in the area - is less than 5 minutes' walk from Villa Marrachinho. The nearest other beach is Praia da Coelha, particularly picturesque, set in a cove of golden cliffs and rock formations. Several other excellent beaches are within a couple of miles, such as those at Castelo, Gale and Praia Grande.

Family fun

A choice of water parks and the Zoomarine aquarium and dolphin show are within a short drive. They are a big hit with young children, teenagers or even the adults in the party. Or, Parque Aventura is situated in Santa Eulalia, Albufeira and consists of a paintball centre and various adventure courses.

Places of interest

Chic Vilamoura, with its international marina, casino, shops and restaurants is well worth a visit for a day or evening out.

Golf

For golfers, the 9-hole Balaia Course and 9-hole Sheraton Pine Cliffs Course at Olhos D'Agua are nearby, with 6 full, championship courses at Vilamoura to choose from.

Remember…

Every villa comes with its own manual, complete with details of the best restaurants, taxis, local amenities and activities. And of course, our reps are on hand to make sure you love your holiday more. If you need any advice or tips on the local area, they will be more than happy to help.

Salgados golf course

One of the many courses in the Algarve, it was once an aircraft landing strip and wetland area beside a bird sanctuary.

It has been compared to both a Scottish links course and a water-filled Florida course and if you enjoy water challenges this course is for you.

The par 4 seventh is rated amongst the best holes in Portugal. The final three holes decrease in difficulty allowing golfers to ease up after a testing first 15.
