Location features

Local markets and shopping

There are several shops within walking distance of Villa Genoveva. Plus, you'll find a local market every Tuesday between Praia D'Oura and the old town of Albufeira. Alternatively, the older part of Albufeira is ideal to get a taste of the past with its narrow streets, handicraft shops and traditional Algarvean colours. There are wide shopping streets and a lively atmosphere particularly in the large square with live music featuring at times.

Bars and restaurants

There are plenty of bars and restaurants a short walk away on the Strip. During the day, you can enjoy a spot of lunch at any one of the cafes and restaurants. At night Praia D'Oura really comes to life. The bars and clubs, best suited to the young and young at heart, offer a lively atmosphere and open until the early hours in high season. For something more traditional, the old town of Albufeira is 5 minutes' drive away. It has a good choice of bars and restaurants spread all along the narrow, cobbled streets.


The nearest beach is Praia D'Oura at the bottom of the hill which is less than 10 minutes' walk away. Alternatively, Albufeira has a beautiful and expansive sandy beach, flanked by dramatic cliffs and rock formations. Or, for more relaxing surroundings, there's a string of picturesque cove beaches to the west of Albufeira, including Coelho, Castelo and Gale. A little further afield, 20 minutes' drive away on either side of Albufeira, are the sandy stretches of Praia Grande to the west and Falesia to the east.

Family fun

There are a choice of waterparks and the Zoomarine aquarium and dolphin show all within 20 minutes' drive. Zoomarine is an exotic marine life theme park home to hundreds of fantastic and fascinating sea creatures. Alternatively, Parque Aventura in Santa Eulalia, Albufeira, consists of a paintball centre and various adventure courses through the trees made up of zip wires, bridges and ropes.

Places of interest

The International Sand Sculpture Festival in Pera takes place every year from May to October. It celebrates a different theme each year and takes the 50 international artists 8 weeks to prepare for. The exhibits are fantastic and are created by artists from all over the world - great fun for all the family. Alternatively, stylish Vilamoura, with its international marina, casino, shops and restaurants, is well worth a visit.
