It has unique natural scenery, soft golden sand, shallow waters and a lively beach restaurant. Praia da Coelha is also close by, set in a picturesque cove of golden cliffs and rock formations. Several other excellent beaches are within a couple of miles, such as those at Castelo, Gale and Praia Grande

Krazy World, in the next town of Algoz, is 20 minutes' drive away from the villa and has a small zoo with restaurants and a communal pool.

Golf
