Villa Location
Villa Bica has a pleasant countryside location at the end of a small cul-de-sac, off a track which leads from the road between the exclusive resorts of Quinta do Lago and Vale do Lobo. There are restaurants to suit all tastes and budgets in the surrounding area from simple, Portuguese to a la carte cuisine. Praia do Garrao Beach is just 5 minutes' drive away - with plenty more on offer within easy reach. Golfers are well catered for too! Our villa Talefe is on the same lane.

Location features

Local market and shopping

Under 10 minutes' drive to the east are the Buganvilia Plaza and Quinta shopping centres, with chic fashion shops. Or take a trip inland to Loule and its colourful traditional market. It's open every Saturday so why not pick up a souvenir to take home?

Bars and restaurants

There are several dining options to suit all tastes and pockets within driving distance, or a few around 20 minutes on foot. These range from simple Portuguese cuisine to quality international dishes, as well as several excellent beach bars for lunch time snacks. Further afield is the international yacht marina of Vilamoura, with a range of restaurants and bars.


The nearest beach is Garrao, just 5 minutes' drive away, where you can enjoy water sports or simply relax. This is just part of the superb sands stretching for miles along the coast here.

Place of interest

Faro's historic old town is worth a visit if you fancy wandering around its narrow, cobbled streets, interesting shops and restaurants. To delve a little deeper into the history perhaps visit the Archaeological museum, the Cathedral, Nossa Sra do Carmo Church, and the medieval walls.

Family fun

There is a tennis centre, horse-riding and a nature reserve all within 5 minutes' drive. Or, further on is the go-kart track and a waterpark, both no more than 15 minutes in car - so plenty to keep the family entertained!


There are top quality golf courses nearby including the Vale do Lobo Royal and Vale do Lobo Ocean courses where you can perfect your swing! These are of course just 2 of the course the Algarve has to offer.

Remember ...

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.

Activities and things to do
Vale de Lobo golf courses
Two courses are based at Vale do Lobo. The Royal is the main course, opening with an easy par 5 after which the fairways become tighter and the greens better protected.

The par 3 ninth is the most memorable. The green lies on a peninsula built into an artificial lake and is played at different angles depending on which tee you choose to use.

The sixteenth hole is possibly the most photographed in Europe. It is 210 metres long and crosses two ravines. Teeing off on a cliff top is an exhilarating experience and somewhat nerve-racking on a blustery day.

The other course is the Ocean Course, which is no less difficult and equally scenic.

Villa Bica Customer Reviews

Paul Chandler, 16-Jul-2015

The Villa was stunning, plenty of space, well maintained gardens and large pool that the children were in all day long. The location was nice and rural (Quiet) but close to a lovely resort of Vale De Lobo which was a nice place to wander around and close to some lovely beaches. We would definitely go there again, roll on next year
