Villa Location
Villa Cortelhas enjoys a fantastic location close to the small and quaint village of Guia, famed as the birth place of the traditional Algarvean dish spicy chicken piri piri! There are a selection of good restaurants and cafes and the nearest beach is at Gale, but there are a number of other excellent beaches in the area. Guia is a mere 10 minute drive from Albufeira, one of the Algarve's most popular and well known resorts, which has a huge selection of shops and places to eat as well as a fabulous sandy beach. Zoomarine is also very close by and Villa Avos is next door.

Location features


Guia's origins are difficult to determine, but oral tradition tells us that the site of the chapel of Nossa da Guia is where the Virgin Mary once appeared. Consequently, the village name has a religious origin relating to the existence of the chapel which was built prior to the 16th century. The vow to Our Lady of Guia is ancient and at one time drew pilgrims from all over the Algarve to make their promises to the Virgin Mary, which according to tradition gave rise to the annual Guia Fair held from October 7th to 9th, in the chapel surroundings. The narrow streets and old-style cottages are reminders of times gone by and yet within a 10 minute drive are the attractive cove bays, rock pools and sandy beaches of Galé, Castelo and São Rafael, all with a beach bar.

The Algarve also has a great choice of things to do for children, including the popular Zoomarine Oceanarium and dolphin display which is a mere 10 minute walk from the villa.

Or for golfers, the nearest course is Salgados which has lovely views of the sea, a little over 4 miles away from the villa.

If it's nightlife you're after, Albufeira is also a little over 4 miles away, easily reached by car. On the far side of the resort is Praia D'Oura with a plethora of nightlife along its' famous mile long strip leading down to the beach.

For those wishing to explore more widely, Villa Cortelhas' ideal central location means that almost anywhere across the Algarve can be reached in an hour or so by car.

Activities and things to do
Zoomarine is an exotic marine life theme park home to hundreds of fantastic and fascinating sea creatures. The park includes dolphins, sea lions, turtles, a shark, a museum and an alligator farm as well as a mini-zoo, exotic birds and tropical fish.

Some of the best shows in Europe are staged at Zoomarine such as sea lion, dolphin and eagle shows. It is advisable to arrive early and plan an itinerary for the day.

It is also possible to interact with dolphins but it is advisable to call at least 2 days in advance. Even though it is costable, it is very popular.

Entertainment at the theme park also includes fairground rides, swimming pools, shops and a cinema.

Zoomarine is situated at KM65 close to Albufeira on the main N125 road between Pera and Guia. The park is in a tranquil setting offset by gardens and lakes. Tel: 200 351 289 560 300.
Aqualand Waterslide Park
Formerly known as 'The Big One,' Aqualand has spectacular gardens and is probably the largest waterpark in the Algarve.

The names of the slides give you an idea of what to expect – Hydra, Raging Rapids, Banzai Boggan, Kamikaze, Surf Beach, Rainbow Park, Crazy Leap, Crazy Race &, Congo River! Users of the Kamikaze slide fall 26 metres vertically to the pool below in only four seconds!

Aqualand is located west of Alcantarilha on the main N125 road some ten kilometres outside Albufeira. Tel: 00 351 282 320 230.
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.

Villa Cortelhas Customer Reviews

Loretta Kennedy, 09-Jul-2015

Absolutely beautiful villa with everything you need. Excellent facilities and home comforts. Guia is a lovely town with a good selection of restaurants and shops. There is a fantastic retail centre about 5 minutes away. About 15 minutes drive is Albufeira with a great selection of restaurants. And just another 10 minutes or so takes you to Vilamoura - lovely Marina, especially in the evenings. Beaches are outstanding and so many coves to choose from. Will definitely return to this Villa.
