Local markets and shopping

The nearest supermarket is just 550 yards away for those holiday essentials. Alternatively, neighbouring Albufeira and Praia D'Oura offer a wide range of shops and supermarkets. There is also a commercial centre in Guia, or for those who prefer something more traditional, visit the local market which is every Tuesday in Albufeira.

My Husband, daughter and myself had a wonderful holiday. - Absolutely perfect The Villa was gorgeous we met the Owners and their daughter during our stay and the old gentleman gave us bunches of grapes from the vines growing in the garden. If I hadn't already booked our September holiday for next year I would absolutely want to return to Miraflores. Thankyou Villa Plus and all the staff who contributed to our wonderful holiday. See you in 2014!
