Historic old town

Albufeira has a lot of Moorish history in the Old Town and is certainly worth a visit.

If you like to relax with a game of golf, Salgados golf course, with its lovely sea views, is 1½ miles from this villa. Alternatively, the 9 hole Sheraton Pine Cliffs course is to the other side of Albufeira, near Olhos D'Agua.

Activities and things to do
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.
