Location features

Local markets and shopping

There are several shops within walking distance of the villa. Alternatively, there is a local market every Tuesday between Praia D'Oura and the old town of Albufeira. Or, 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

Praia D'Oura is perfect for anyone wanting lots to do and a lively atmosphere! Villa Tara is ideally located, close to the resorts' famous Strip which has everything you need, with plenty of cafes, bars and restaurants. During the day, you can enjoy a bit of retail therapy and lunch at any one of the cafes and restaurants. At night Praia D'Oura really comes to life, with many of the bars and clubs offering a great atmosphere and open until the early hours in high season. For something more traditional, the old town of Albufeira is 10 minutes' drive away. There's a good choice of bars and restaurants to suit all tastes spread all along the narrow, cobbled streets.


The Strip runs all the way to the golden sandy beach from which Praia D'Oura derives its name, which offers water sports facilities plus a choice of beachside cafes and restaurants. Alternatively, nearby Albufeira has a beautiful and expansive sandy beach, flanked by dramatic cliffs and rock formations. To Albufeira's far side are a string of picturesque cove beaches, such as those at Coelho, Castelo and Gale. A little further afield, 20 minutes' drive on either side of Albufeira, are the sandy stretches of Praia Grande to the west and Falesia to the east.

Family fun

A choice of waterparks and the Zoomarine aquarium and dolphin show are within 20 minutes' drive. Alternatively, Parque Aventura situated in Santa Eulalia, Albufeira consists of a paintball centre and various adventure courses through the trees made up of zip wires, bridges and ropes. The assault courses and games are suitable for children of 4 years and older with varying degrees of height and difficulty and are all supervised by qualified instructors.

Places of interest

The International Sand Sculpture Festival, held 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. And, chic Vilamoura, with its international marina, casino, shops and restaurants, is well worth a visit for a day or evening out.


For golfers, the 9-hole Sheraton Pine Cliffs course is nearby at Olhos D'Agua, with 4 full golf courses, 25 minutes away by car at stylish Vilamoura.


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.
