Location features

Local markets and shopping

There are several shops within walking distance of the villa. Every Tuesday there is a local market between Praia D'Oura and the old town of Albufeira. The old town is ideal if you want to experience an authentic taste of Portugal, with narrow streets, handicraft shops and traditional Algarvean colours on display. There are wide shopping streets and a lively atmosphere, particularly in the large redesigned and repaved square with live music featuring at times.

Bars and restaurants

The Strip is only a few minutes' walk away with lots to do and a lively atmosphere! The Strip has everything you need, with all manner of cafes, bars, restaurants and clubs to choose from. During the day you can enjoy a spot of lunch at any one of the numerous cafes and restaurants. At night Praia D'Oura really comes to life, with many of the bars and clubs offering a great atmosphere. They open until the early hours in high season and play a varied choice of live music.


There are 2 beaches within ¾ mile, Praia D'Oura's Golden Mile Beach at the very end of the Strip and Forte São João Beach. Nearby in Albufeira there is a beautiful and expansive sandy beach flanked by dramatic cliffs and rock formations. For more relaxing surroundings, a string of picturesque cove beaches can be found just to the west of Albufeira such as Coelho, Castelo and Gale. A little further afield, 15 minutes' drive on either side of Albufeira will take you to the sandy stretches of Praia Grande to the west and Falesia to the east.

Family fun

A choice of water-parks and the Zoomarine aquarium and dolphin show are within a short drive, and a big hit with young children, teenagers or even the adults in the party.

Places of interest

Chic Vilamoura, with its international marina, casino, shops and restaurants is well worth a visit for a day or evening out.
