Villa Location
Located on the outskirts of Branqueira, Villa Joao Paulo is within a 10 minute drive from the lively neighbouring resorts of Albufeira and Praia D'Oura, as well as a choice of fantastic sandy beaches. There are a few good restaurants only a few minutes walk from the villa, with a much bigger choice at any of the nearby resorts, as well as a good nightlife scene at Praia D'Oura Strip.

Location features


This impressive 4 bedroom villa is located close to the centre of Branqueira, away from the road for a good deal of privacy. There is a small selection of restaurants within a few minutes walk with Branqueira village centre ¾ mile away. There are a choice of great beaches in the area, all easily accessible, within a few minutes by car.

In contrast to Branqueira, the nearby resort of Praia D'Oura has a huge choice of shops, bars, restaurants and nightlife along its famous Strip, which runs for 1 mile from the Montechoro Hotel down to the Golden Mile Beach, from where the resort derives its name. A number of cafes and restaurants line the beach and watersports are also available.

Past Praia D'Oura is Albufeira, one of the Algarve's most popular resorts. Albufeira has a lot of Moorish history along its narrow cobbled streets in the Old Town, where you can also find a huge choice of restaurants and shops.

The nearest beaches are those at Maria Luisa, Santa Eulalia and Praia D'Oura, but over the other side of Albufeira, a string of smaller cove beaches can be found, such as those at Coelho, Castelo and Galé.

For families, The Algarve has a huge choice of attractions and leisure facilities to enjoy, all within easy reach of the villa, including a choice of waterslide parks and the Zoomarine Oceanarium and Dolphin Show, all within a 25 minute drive.

The south of Portugal is also very popular with golfers, having a number of excellent courses in the area. The 9 hole Balaia Golf Course and 9 hole Sheraton Pine Cliffs Course at Olhos D'Agua are the nearest courses to the villa, with 6 full championship courses in Vilamoura, to the east towards Faro.

Activities and things to do
Balaia Golf course
Opened in April 2001, this small and attractive 9 hole Executive Golf Course offers the opportunity to improve your iron shots, your short game and to test every golfer irrespective of handicap. Set around lakes, rolling hills and a mixture of pine and cork trees, from the first tee it presents a charming view of most of the course with the ribbon of blue sea as its background. This course requires pin point approaches, a fine touch around the greens and a solid putting stroke. This course tests the ability to control shot length and direction. 984 metres in length. 27 Par. Address: Balaia Golf Village, 8200 Albufeira Tel: 00 351 289 570 442/1 Fax: 00 351 289 570 470 Website: You can contact via website to pre-book.
Pine Cliffs golf course
This course is perched on a cliff top above Falesia, one of the Algarve's most stunning beaches. The 5 Star Sheraton Algarve Hotel overlooks the umbrella pine trees that line the fairways.

The most testing hole is the dog-leg sixth with its small landing area for the drive. The second shot is uphill to a backward sloping green with bunkers in front.

Address: Sheraton Pine Cliffs Resort, Praia da Falesta 8200-909 Albufeira

Description: Nine holes, 2274 metres, Par 33
Location: Seven kilometers east of Albufeira on the coast. Turn left off the EN125 for Acoteias, west of the Vilamoura turn off.
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.

Description: Eighteen holes, 6080 metres, Par 72
Location: Six kilometers west of Albufeira. Turn off the EN125 at Guia.

As if paying tribute to a turbulent history in the middle ages, the blood red walls of mighty Silves Castle overlook the surrounding countryside. The largest military monument to the Islamic period in Portugal, it remembers a different past in the Iberian Peninsula.

The Old Cathedral (which features gargoyles from over 500 years ago) city walls and medieval bridge emphasise Silves as an historical town. An historical town would be incomplete without a museum which in this city contains an 11th century well!

Visitors may wish to take a trip through time by sailing down the Arade River to the sea, passing vestiges of Roman and Viking presence.
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.
