Holiday in Almadena, Lagos : Almadena is a friendly village with superb but inexpensive restaurants and a small general shop. There is a telephone box in the square that takes credit cards. Buses run from the square to Luz and Lagos one way, and Sagres the other way, where there are cafes, restaurants, supermarkets and all the services you may require. There are also numerous beaches throughout the neighbouring coastal area, which is easily accessable by bus or car. English is widely spoken throughout the region.
The villa is located in a quiet area which has permanent residents and as a result is ideal for those seeking a quiet retreat.
Golf in Western Algarve : Golfers will enjoy the many fine courses including Boavista, Penina, Palmares and Parque de Floresta (the large golf and sports resort 15 minutes due west of Almadena).
Places to visit: Praia de Luz is 10 minutes away by car and its excellent beach has been awarded an EU blue flag. The town has old streets and fishermen's cottages and rewards exploration. Try to find the Roman archaeological remains!
Lagos, the main town, has a fine marina with boat hire and watersports. There is a 17th century fortress, Forte de Bandeira, which may be of interest, with the slave market and town gate and remnants of old walls nearby. There is also an exellent fish market. A visit to the town in the evening is worthwhile, for the atmosphere and ambience.
Cape St Vincent, 'The End of the World', is the most westerly point in Europe, with a working lighthouse and splendid views of the Atlantic Ocean.
Sagres has a Moorish fort perched on the cliff with dramatic sea views.
Silves was the original capital and one of the oldest towns in the Algarve, with Moorish influences in the walled castle within the town.
'Just returned from a lovely two week break in Vivende Abacate. there were 8 of us on this holiday and we all enjoyed the holiday in different ways. The Villa has everything you need to have a perfect holiday, plus it is situated in one of the most beautiful villages with friendly neighbours and a great pubs.
A must to visit is O'Celerio Restaurant located just opp. the main road, walking distance.
There are some beautiful places to visit and the beaches are absolutely lovely.
Will be making a trip next year for sure.
Go and see for yourself.'
Great location allowed us to go out and explore as well as have a nice laze by the pool.
Villa facilities are of a high standard and I am sure we will return at some point in the future.
Un grand merci pour des vacances en famille réussies. La maison est spacieuse et très agréable avec tout le confort nécéssaire. Le soleil étant au rendez-vous, tout était parfait. Merci!
We are just home from a weeks holiday in this villa.We all loved everything about it and being our first time abroad it was everything we could have asked for.The village has everthing you need and has alot of character, the locals are all very friendly and we enjoyed the atmosphere at the festival.You have the best of both worlds staying here as you can have a relaxing holiday but can still enjoy a busy atmosphere if wanted by travelling a short distance by bus or taxi into a near by town such as pria da luz.or lagos,we will definitley be back
Spent 2 weeks of bliss in this great family villa. 2 adults and 2 teenagers all had a fantasticand very relaxing time. During the hot summer months the pool is a great facility. The location is remote enough to be away from it all but close enough to Lagos to enjoy the town's facilities within a short drive - try the dolphin sight seeing sea trip as a must! Local village has great restaurants and all the villagers are very friendly. The restaurants in Lagos are plentiful and sufficiently varied that every taste is catered for. All in all, thoroughly recommended.
We stayed in this villa for a month in June and had a wonderful time, the villa is in a beautiful village and has everything you need for a holiday. It is very clean and well mainained and the village has numerous places to eat and drink all of which are very good. It also has some very good beaches nearby and some wonderful places to visit.
I would certainly recommend this for a relaxing holiday.
Had a lovely 2 weeks at villa in Aug 09. Very spacious villa with everything you need and clean and tidy. I went with family which included my 2 children aged 2 and 5 who really enjoyed using the pool although this did cause some concern as there is no cover on the pool and we were unable to let them outside without constant supervision and although we were outside at one time my 5 year old did fall in! Villa was cleaned by cleaner twice while we were there and pool was maintained also. One thing we did find that dog barking was very noticable and did wake us at night sometimes. Overally we had a lovely time and weather was wonderful
Almádena is a small unspoilt Algarvean village which is surrounded by National Park area. Although it is in the countryside, it is close to the coast with many sandy beaches. Most are secluded and are not packed. It is 5km from Luz and Burgau with historic Lagos 7km away. It is the quieter, less commercial end of the Algarve. Nearby there are numerous golf-courses and riding stables with water and theme parks within easy driving distances. Restaurants, cafes and bars abound.
