Villa Location
Villa Ribeiro Tomas is just 5 minutes' drive outside the historical Portuguese market town of Loule, with tree lined plazas and medieval alleys giving it a unique character. This ancient town is packed with history including ancient castle and various Gothic churches as well as an Arabic inspired covered market. Large expanses of soft sand span the nearby coastline, providing you with multiple beach havens to relax on. The resorts of Quinta do Lago and Vilamoura are just 20 minutes' drive away with sandy beaches, plenty of bars, restaurants and shops.

Location features

Local markets and shopping

The town comes alive on Saturday mornings when the daily market expands to include a farmers' market selling local produce, fresh fish and regional crafts. There is also a bustling gypsy market on the Western side of Loule. For a larger range of high street and designer shops, head to the Mar shopping mall on the outskirts of Loule or the Forum shopping centre in Faro, a 30 minute drive away.

Bars and restaurants

Loule has a selection of cafes, bars and restaurants mostly centred around the Avenida and covered market. For more choice, head to Quinta do Lago which has plenty of restaurants and chic fashionable shops in the Bougainvillea Plaza. Alternatively, head 20 minutes' west to Vilamoura, built around its stylish marina, and enjoy a meal overlooking the elegant yachts docked in the harbour.


You'll be spoilt for choice when it comes to golden sandy beaches to choose from along this coastline, otherwise known as the Golden Triangle. Vale do Lobo Beach is a long stretch of golden sand, backed by distinctive terracotta cliffs, 20 minutes' drive away. Sunbeds and parasols can be hired as well as plenty of water sports on offer. The Quinta do Lago and Vale do Garrao Beaches are both within half an hour's drive away and along the same stretch of soft sandy coastline with all the necessary amenities needed to spend the day relaxing on the beach.

Family fun

Families are well catered for in the Algarve, thanks to places such as the Ria Formosa Nature Park, a 40 minute drive away, where guided walks and boat tours can be organised. This spectacular coastal lagoon is home to one of the largest populations of seahorses and also an endangered species of chameleon found only in the Algarve. The Aquashow waterpark with a roller coaster, water slides, wave pools and much more is only a 10 minute drive from the villa just outside Quarteira. Nearby Almancil, 15 minutes' drive away is famous for its Go Karting Rink, and horse riding trips can be organised at the Pine Trees Centre near Vale do Lobo.

Places of interest

Loule has an abundance of local historical and cultural attractions such as the remains of a Roman settlement and Loule Castle. Originally an important Moorish city, the remnants of its North African heritage can still be seen throughout the town. If you wish to find out more about the Algarve's history, why not visit Faro's Historical old town where you will find marvellously preserved Medieval quarters, museums, churches and a chapel?


There are top quality golf courses nearby including the Vale do Lobo Royal and Vale do Lobo Ocean courses where you can perfect your swing! These are of course just 2 of the plethora of courses that the Algarve has to offer.


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.

The courts are overlooked by the centre’s clubhouse which includes a bar, a shop and satellite TV, where you can relax after a game or join one of the regular social events.

Vale de Lobo golf courses
Two courses are based at Vale do Lobo. The Royal is the main course, opening with an easy par 5 after which the fairways become tighter and the greens better protected.

The par 3 ninth is the most memorable. The green lies on a peninsula built into an artificial lake and is played at different angles depending on which tee you choose to use.

The sixteenth hole is possibly the most photographed in Europe. It is 210 metres long and crosses two ravines. Teeing off on a cliff top is an exhilarating experience and somewhat nerve-racking on a blustery day.

The other course is the Ocean Course, which is no less difficult and equally scenic.
