Villa Location
Villa Praia enjoys a fantastic location on Portugal's South Coast, only a minutes' walk from Lourenco Beach, and further on to Gale. There is a wooden boardwalk onto the sand with a beach bar at the top overlooking the sea, as well as couple of restaurants within easy walking distance. In Guia and Albufeira - a short drive away - there are a wider choice of restaurants, attractions and beaches. Our Villa Gregorio is on the opposite side of the street.

Location features

Local markets and shopping

There is a mini market within walking distance from the villa, whilst nearby Albufeira, a drive to the east, has all manner of shopping amenities to keep you busy. A little further on is Praia D'Oura with plenty of shops to browse. There is also a large mall within driving distance called Algarve Shopping - for shopping on a larger scale.


Bars and restaurants

Aside from the restaurants within walking distance in Guia and Albufeira there a wider choice on offer, around 10 minutes' drive away. Guia itself is the renowned home of the typical Algarve dish, spicy chicken piri piri - well worth sampling! Further on from Albufeira, is lively Praia D'Oura with its thriving nightlife scene, many clubs playing music late into the night.


Beaches

The nearest beach, Lourenco is just a few steps away, which has a beach bar serving both food and drinks. What better place to relax with a cool drink overlooking the sea? Gale Beach is 10 minutes' walk away, whilst several other excellent beaches are also within a short drive. These include the picturesque coves of Coelho and Castelo, each with a snack bar/restaurant. Or, Aramacao de Pera also has impressive large beach for a great day out.


Family fun

For those with children there is a choice of water-slide parks and the Zoomarine aquarium and dolphin show are both within 20 minutes' drive. You will be spoilt for choice for a family day out in the Algarve.


Places of interest

Albufeira Old Town has a lot of Moorish history and is certainly worth a visit. It's just a short drive away. Take refuge in its churches which date back to the 1500's or explore the warren of cobbled streets that provide a welcome shade from the heat. For those wishing to explore further, Villa Praia's location means that almost anywhere across the Algarve can be reached in an hour or so by car.


Golf

For golfers, the nearest course is Salgados, just 1½ miles away, or alternatively the 9-hole Sheraton Pine Cliffs course to the other side of Albufeira, near Olhos d'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.

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.

This villa is lovely. It's proximity to the beach is undeniably its best asset. You will definitely need a car if you stay here because the nearest restaurant is around 20 minutes walk away. We would most definitely stay here again. Angela the representative was such a helpful person and she is a real asset. All in all a lovely time was had by all. Thanks Villa Plus.

Villa was very clean and well maintained. Pool was excellent and position of the villa cannot be faulted with superb views over the sea/beach and a top quality restaurant/bar within a few years of the villa. Local amenities(well stocked and high quality supermarket) a short drive away. There are possibly claw marks on the exit to the villa because I had to drag my wife away at the end of the holiday.....

We had a great time, the villa is in a wonderful location and I would certainly consider renting it again. My three year old grandson had a wonderful time in the pool and developed a taste for the delicious clams served at the beach restaurant.

Paul Reynolds, 04-Nov-2007

Our first holiday with our children (3 & 8) and our first villa holiday. Fantastic! Couldn't fault a thing. Kids loved the pool and we loved the peace of mind. Arrangements and information provided were good, flights good, car hire good (even upgraded us FOC), villa and weather were even better than we'd hoped for. We only had one problem - we lost a teddy bear when we first arrived, we left it at the car hire reception. One frantic call to the rep at the airport and he was returned the next day after spending the night at her house. One 3 year old very happy. Above and beyond the call of duty and very much appreciated. We had a great holiday - thank you. We haven't stopped talking about it and recommending your company to all our friends and family.
