Villa Location
Villa Canisp sits in an enviable location with marvellous views over the sea. Albufeira's Old Town and picturesque, golden beach are within walking distance, with the popular resort of Guia within easy reach by car.

Location features

Villa Canisp is set in Cerro Grande, a residential area above Albufeira's Old Town. A café and 2 bars are just around the corner.

Further downhill within walking distance is the old town itself, nowadays a thriving tourist area with a variety of bars and restaurants, along narrow cobbled streets, but where evidence of Albufeira's Moorish history can still be seen.

A pedestrian tunnel provides access to the large sandy beach, flanked by magnificent cliffs and rock formations.

A mile and a half to the east is Praia D'Oura, with its bustling nightlife scene, perfect for anyone wanting lots to do and a lively atmosphere. Guia itself is around 2 miles to the north and is the renowned home of the typical Algarve dish, spicy chicken piri-piri.

For those seeking more relaxing surroundings, Villa Canisp is well located to reach a string of beautiful beaches along the São Rafael coast to the west, such as Coelha, Castelo, Galé, and the expansive Praia Grande near Armaçao de Pêra. All can be reached by car within ten minutes and all have beach bar/restaurants.

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

Further afield, for those with children, a choice of water-slide parks and the Zoomarine aquarium and dolphin show are within a short drive.

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.
