Villa Location
Villa Alegre is situated in a great position in the residential area of Cerro Grande, above Albufeira's cobbled old town. There is a choice of good restaurants nearby and the beautiful old town and beach are within walking distance. The quaint village of Guia - home to the famous piri chicken - and lively resort of Praia D'Oura are also within easy reach by car. What's not to love?

Location features

Local markets and shopping

Opportunities for shopping can be found in Albufeira Old Town itself, as well as Praia D'Oura within 5 minutes' drive.

Bars and restaurants

There is a café and 2 snack bars just down the road from Villa Alegre. Further downhill is the old town itself, nowadays a thriving tourist area with bars and restaurants to suite a range of tastes spread along narrow cobbled streets. Evidence of Albufeira's Moorish history can still be seen. 1½ miles east is the lively neighbouring resort of Praia D'Oura which has a huge choice of bars, night clubs and restaurants along its famous Strip. The smaller town of Guia is around 2 ¾ miles north and is home to the typical Portuguese dish spicy chicken piri - well worth a visit!


A pedestrian tunnel provides access to the large sandy beach of Albufeira, flanked by dramatic cliffs and rock formations. Nearby Praia D'Oura has an enormous golden, sandy beach, which is worth a visit. There is also a choice of beautiful beaches along the Sao Rafael coast to the west, such as Coelha, Castelo, Galé, and the expansive Praia Grande near Armaçao de Pera. All have their own beach bar or restaurant and can be reached by car within 10 minutes.

Family fun

For a great family day out, there are a choice of waterparks in the area, as well as the popular Zoomarine oceanarium and dolphin show.


For golfers, the nearest course is Salgados, next to the sands of Praia Grande beach. Alternatively, the 9 hole Sheraton Pine Cliffs course is to the other side of Albufeira, near Olhos D'Agua.


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.

Activities and things to do
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.
