Location features

Location details

This charming 4 bedroom villa is located in the popular area of Castelo, 3 miles from Albufeira, and provides so many opportunities to get more from your precious villa holiday. The sandy coves of Castelo and Evaristo are also within easy reach and conveniently there are 3 local restaurants and a supermarket within walking distance of the villa. Of course if you wish to explore further there are several attractions worth a visit ranging from waterparks to the town of Guia, the birthplace of chicken piri piri.

Bars, shops and restaurants

If you wish to venture a little further on from Castelo, Albufeira has all manner of shopping amenities and restaurants, as well as a good nightlife scene. Slightly further East is Praia D'Oura with a huge array of shops and places to eat along its mile long Strip, as well as a number of nightclubs and discos. Guia, the renowned home of the traditional Algarve dish spicy chicken piri piri, is around 3 miles North and it is worth trying one of the local restaurants.


The nearest beach is the fine cove beach of Castelo around a 10 minute walk away, with Evaristo being just a little further on. Alternatively Albufeira, one of the Algarve's most popular resorts, is 3 miles to the East, with an expansive sandy beach with a host of amenities on offer or 1 ½ miles further along are the golden sands of Praia D'Oura. Should you require something more tranquil 4 miles to the East is Armaçao de Pera, a more laid back resort town with an expansive sandy beach.

Family fun

For a family day out a choice of water-slide parks and the popular Zoomarine aquarium and dolphin show can be reached within a 20 minute drive.


For golf lovers, the nearest course is at Salgados which is about a 1 ½ miles away, before Armaçao de Pera, alongside Praia Grande. Alternatively, the 9 hole Sheraton Pine Cliffs course is to the other side of Albufeira, near Olhos de 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.
