A detailed guide of what to do and where to go based on the owners experience and knowledge is in the house with all relevant detail and contact numbers for local services from a doctor to a taxi (for those nights you don't want to drive) to the beautician! Only 1.5km from Praia Verde - this resort gives access to a beautiful beach that stretches for about 30km to the Rio Formosa. It is a luxury development with restaurants/cafes. Also nearby is Praia Alagoa for water sports. The beaches in the Eastern Algarve are superb, sandy, safe and clean and stretch for miles. The busy resort of Altura with its beach and many lovely restaurants, bars, boutique shops, beauticians, hairdressers... is only 5 mins drive.
Monte Gordo has a promenade that comes alive with street entertainment, craftsmen and market traders in the summer months and is a lovely stroll all year round. There are some good bars and a casino! And great shopping.
Golf: Benamor, Quinta da Ria, Quinta da Cima, Castro Marim, Monte Rei and Quinta do Vale golf courses are all within a 15 minute drive from the house. And of course, being so near to the Spanish border, the house is very convenient for the multitude of golf courses in and around Huelva in western Andalucia.
