There are plenty of shops and restaurants within walking distance downhill of the villa, with several other beautiful beaches including Centianes, Benagil and Marinha close by.

Location features

Local markets and shopping

There are a range of shops within walking distance of Villa Ricardo. Or, nearby Portimao facing Ferragudo across the Rio Arade estuary is one of the Algarve's largest towns, with a good pedestrianised shopping area.

Bars and restaurants

Around 10 minutes' walk away downhill is the centre of Carvoeiro. It offers a wide choice of restaurants, bars and cafes, making it ideal for those who prefer not to hire a car. For nightlife, Praia da Rocha is a bustling resort just beyond Portimao, with a huge beach and all kinds of bars, clubs and entertainment.


Aside from Carvoeiro Beach that's within walking distance, the cliff-backed cove of Centianes is 5 minutes' drive away, whilst Benagil and Marinha beaches are a little further. Alternatively, around 6½ miles west is Ferragudo, with an attractive beach.

Family fun

Slide & Splash Waterslide Park, one of the most popular waterparks in the Algarve, is 5 miles away. Alternatively, further on, around 20 minutes' drive there is Zoomarine, an exotic marine life theme park home to hundreds of fantastic and fascinating sea creatures including dolphins, sea lions, turtles, museums and an alligator farm, as well as a mini-zoo and various shows to watch.

Places of interest

Lagos is about 35 minutes away by car - a charming historic town with a laid-back ambience, a stylish marina, many shops and restaurants, plus some nightlife. Alternatively, the historic city of Silves is inland from Carvoeiro with its castle, cathedral and interesting old town.


For golfers there are 3 courses in the area - Vale do Milho, Pinta and Gramacho.
