Activities and things to do
Salgados golf course
One of the many courses in the Algarve, it was once an aircraft landing strip and wetland area beside a bird sanctuary.

It has been compared to both a Scottish links course and a water-filled Florida course and if you enjoy water challenges this course is for you.

The par 4 seventh is rated amongst the best holes in Portugal. The final three holes decrease in difficulty allowing golfers to ease up after a testing first 15.

This is a brilliant villa in the beautiful area of Sao Rafael. We have booked Villa Ventura a number of times now and once again Villa Plus has never disappointed us. From booking the villa to arrival was a stress free process. The villa service is excellent from the maid to the gardener and the pool cleaner and are all very friendly people. Once again another brilliant holiday - well done Villa Plus.
