Villa Location
Villa Caminho is a detached villa set on an expensive ground overlooking the stunning countryside. Located between Almancil and the chic resorts of Quinta do Lago and Vale do Lobo, known as the Algarve's Golden Triangle! You'll be short drive to a number of cafes and restaurants, with a larger selection to be found further afield. The area is famous for its sophisticated golf courses, beautiful long stretches of sandy beaches and many fashionable restaurants and shops. Our villa Dos Citrinos is nearby.

Location features

Local markets and shopping

Almancil and the surrounding resorts are great for retail therapy! The town itself within a 5 minute drive has an abundance of shops to browse, as well as supermarkets for daily essentials and BBQ supplies. Less than a 10 minute drive is Quinta do Lago, with the popular Bougainvillea Plaza, full of designer boutiques, whilst Vale do Lobo's famous beachside Praca is great for shopping and dining too. Further afield, is the charming city of Loule, a short drive inland, with an indoor market every morning. It's great for stocking up on fresh fruits, vegetables and purchasing souvenirs for your loved ones. The newly built Mar Shopping Mall on the outskirts of the town is also worth visiting.

Bars and restaurants

Almancil has a varied range of restaurants and a few bars on offer where you can enjoy a light lunch or evening dinner. Alternatively, nearby Vale do Lobo's popular Praca, by the seafront, has a wide range of restaurants and bars, with various open-air entertainment during the summer months. If you're looking for a bit of class, Vilamoura Marina is the place to visit, with gourmet restaurants, chic bars and traditional pubs! Great for evening dinners or lazy lunches in the sun!


Drive along the picturesque coastline and choose from the numerous golden sandy beaches to relax on. 15 minutes' drive from the villa are the beaches of Quinta do Lago, Vale do Lobo and Vale do Garrao. These beaches have beautiful stretches of soft golden sand and clear calm waters, great for families with younger children and those who love snorkelling.

Family fun

Explore the nearby Ria Formosa Nature Park with a scenic swirl of freshwater lagoons, sandy islands, and lush salt marshlands. There are also boat and kayak tours available. Aqua Show Waterpark offers a variety of water slides and tubes or you may choose to venture in to the wave pool or the lazy river! Almancil is also well-known for its go-karting facilities - you'll be spoilt for choice!

Places of interest

Also worth visiting is Loulé, a traditional Portuguese town with a colourful Saturday morning travellers market, 20 minutes' drive away. Faro, the Algarve's capital, with its charming marina and historic old town is 25 minutes' drive away. If you wish to explore further why not visit Faro's historic old town where you will find marvellously well-maintained medieval quarters, museums, churches and a chapel.


If you are up for a round of golf, there are plenty on offer as both Quinta do Lago and Vale do Lobo are home to some great courses. The Royal and the Ocean courses just to name a couple.


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
Vilasol golf course
Vila Sol became famous in 1992 when it hosted the Portuguese Open within a year of its opening.

It is beautifully kept and requires long iron shots onto the greens. The most memorable hole is the par 5 sixth with its elevated tee. Below lies a fairway peppered with bunkers and water hazards. In the distance are the large hills separating the Algarve from the rest of the country.

Karting Almancil
Almancil Karting was started in 1992. It is a leisure and competition complex that is available for all lovers of the most accessible motor racing sport - karting!

The park is open all year. The racetrack is a 760m replica of the former F1 Brazilian racetrack named Jacarepegua.

It is located in a leisure complex near to Almancil, IP1 Highway, National Road, EN125.

Tel: 00 351 289 399 899
Pinetrees Horse Riding Centre
Located between Quinta do Lago and Vale do Lobo, Pinetrees Riding Centre provides a high standard of riding tuition, taught by qualified teachers. Lessons are available for beginners as well as experienced riders with ponies for very young children.

Activities on offer include one to one and group sessions, nature walks and treks. The centre welcomes disabled riders with some experience and with medical and (under 18s) parental approval. Riding equipment such as boots, hats and jodhpurs are provided. (Tel. 289 394 369/489)

Aquashow Waterslide Park
The park includes a massive wave pool, superb water slides and mini golf.

Also on site are a gift shop, changing and shower facilities, several restaurants, sunbeds and all you need to spend a really complete day of amusement.

Aquashow is situated on the N396 as you turn off the main N125 road for Quarteira. Tel: 00 351 289 389 396.

Vale de Lobo golf courses
Two courses are based at Vale do Lobo. The Royal is the main course, opening with an easy par 5 after which the fairways become tighter and the greens better protected.

The par 3 ninth is the most memorable. The green lies on a peninsula built into an artificial lake and is played at different angles depending on which tee you choose to use.

The sixteenth hole is possibly the most photographed in Europe. It is 210 metres long and crosses two ravines. Teeing off on a cliff top is an exhilarating experience and somewhat nerve-racking on a blustery day.

The other course is the Ocean Course, which is no less difficult and equally scenic.

We had an excellent holiday, and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The call-out service when we had a slight issue with the safe was very good too, nice that we were left alone to get on with it but also to know you have that kind of support available if you need it.

Villa was everything we could ask for, lots of room and very clean. The maids were lovely and did a great a job. Can't wait to organise another holiday, this has been one of the best villa's weve stayed in, if not the best. The gardens were beautiful, the pool was clean and not too cold. We will be visiting again. Thanks Villa Plus!!
