Algarve Shopping, a large mall, is a 15 min. drive away, open until late, with many shops, restaurants, bowling, and eight cinemas. The new Albufeira Marina is only a few minutes drive or 15 min walk, offering boat trips, fishing and many other excursions.

Leisure Activities: Sao Rafael is a very well located central point on the coast of Algarve. From here it is easy to go to a wide variety of beaches, to visit many typical towns both to the East and West of this region. In Albufeira there are a wide choice of restaurants, coffee shops and bars, small streets plenty of shops and street stalls. Many of the Algarve’s local attractions are within easy reach, including Zoomarine, Aqualand, Slide&Splash and other attractions for children and adults alike. The small town of Guia famous for its piri-piri chicken is close by, the medieval town of Silves, Monchique in the mountains and the Vilamoura Marina are less than an hour away. Oura beach and bustling Montechoro strip with its shops, restaurants, and bars is a half an hour drive away.

Weather: Although the winter months see some rain, there is sunshine all year round in Sao Rafael, with warm weather starting as early as March. Come Easter time there are people on the beach albeit with a colder, rougher sea. And from May the beach restaurants are fully operational every day and the summer warmth begins with the beach’s clear, tranquil, turquoise waters. Both May and June are gloriously peaceful months to enjoy Sao Rafael with very few people on holiday. July, August and September are lively, with summer in full swing. And in October the calm returns with often, still great weather.

FABULOUS LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5
The photos don't do the villa justice - it is much bigger than it looks online. We would happily go to Sao Rafael again - two lovely beaches which are literally 5mins walk away, and quite a few restaurants (Sardinha at Arrifes beach is particularly good). The local supermarket, Tommy's, is adequate (the bigger ones necessitate a taxi/car), and the staff at City Bar are really helpful (a good place to catch Formula 1).

Sao Rafael is an idyllic, sought after location. The resort is an established condominium of privately owned apartments and villas, three kilometres west of Albufeira, and no more than forty minutes drive from Faro airport. Built in traditional Portuguese style with white walls and terracotta tiled roofs, and within lush landscaped gardens with fruit tress, palms and flowers, it is just a short walk to two beautiful sandy cove beaches, São Rafael and Arrifes, and their renowned beach restaurants. Both are blue flag beaches and regarded as Algarve treasures. Set in a coastline of exceptional beauty, its cliff walks offer dramatic views and are a wonderful way to explore the area. Many of the Algarve’s local attractions are within easy reach. Five minutes drive to the Salgados golf course with many others less than thirty minutes drive away, the location is also an ideal base for those who want to explore Algarve's East and West coast.

Other Activities: Boat trips from Albufeira and Vilamoura Marinas

Golf: An ideal location for the golf enthusiast, Salgados Golf is less than a 10 min drive away. Also nearby, are the Sheraton Pine Cliffs course as well as the O'Connor and the 18-hole championship standard Faldo golf course. Vilamoura's Old Course e Victoria Course are some twenty minutes drive.
