The Algarve is one of the best kept secrets of Europe. See also the promotionpicture on our site. East of Faro, the coastal region consist of unusual lagoons and kilometres long small Sandy islands. West of Faro you find a chain of small beaches, surrounded by rugged cliffs and caves. In the sparsely, populated inland it looks as if the time has stand still and it is here that the old Portugalsphere still revives. You are surrounded by the peace and quiet, delicious smells and a beautiful nature; pines, eucalyptus trees, wild flowers,lavender and beautiful flowering and smelling almond trees in january and february. The Algarvian coast and the inland are an excellent walking area in all seasons. They treat the walkers to imposing cliffs, spledid viewpoints, picturesque, small villages and surprising nature reserves.


1. Serra de Monchique : is the paradise for walkers in the west part of Algarve, immense peace, wealthy subtropical vegetation, fertile terraces and green valleys full of wild flowers such as mimosa, cork oaks, etc. On the highest summit Foia (905 mtrs) you can enjoy a magnificent look out. Monchique is also a pleasent small village with narrow alleys, brightly coloured houses and a authentic relaxed atmosphere.

2. Lagos dos Salvados is lying in the neighbourhood of our villa. It is a lagoon with brackish water, protected by a row of dunes against the Atlantic Ocean. A nice footpath has been constructed with a wooden platform so that you can easily walk through and back along the beach. It is the only breeding place of cattle egrets spoonbills, flamingos and white egrets.

3. Ria de Alvor : walkers as well as nature and birdwatchers can indulge themselves here. It is the restfeeding place from migrating wader as the caspian terns, plovers, flamingos and black tailed goodwits. The nature reserve can be explored from the village Alvor by making a nice walk partly along the lagoon and partly along the beach, thereby making a good use of the wooden stepstones. It is also possible to rent canoes to cross the lagoon. There is a varied walkingtour from 8 kilometres as well through the area from the original small raiwaystation from the Mexilhoeira Grande.


At only a few minutes driving there are beautiful beaches to find.

1. Praia Marinha ; this beach has been explained to one of the most beautiful beaches of Europe. Excellent rockformations, a wooden staircase leading to it and followed by a fine walk along the coast.

HORSERIDING : In Bensafrim, a small village 6 kilometres before Lagos you’ll find two maneges which offers offside rides. ( and )

SAILING : To look at the sea with his beautiful cost and caves from the shoreline is very much rewarding. You can reserve a boattrip from Praia Benagil, right near the villa, as well as from Praia Carvoeiro. This is a most rewarding experience. What is also worth while is a trip with a pirate boat from Portimao. Very attractive and various tours with Music, canon and drinks, etc. ( On the website you can find al kind of trips with picnic and all kind of trips on land.

TENNIS : In Carvoeiro you can find the Carvoeiro Tennisclub with twelve illuminated tenniscourts, fitness and swimmingpool (

GOLF : The Algarve is a paradise for golfplayers. There are 29 courses between Faro and Sagres, all within a radius of 40 kilometres. Close to the villa you’ll find three of these, namely Petana Golfresort in Carvoeiro with two 18 holes courses ; the Pinta and the Gramacho. ( and also in Carvoeiro the course Vale de Milho; a nice 9 holes course (

Shoppingmall : there are two of them in close vicinity. A shoppingmall in Guia by Albufeira and the shoppingmall Jumbo in Portimao with a lot of chains such as H&M, Zara, Primark, Pull and Bear, but there are also many Potuguese shops.

De huurprijzen zijn all-in en gelden voor twee personen. Bij een verblijf tot 4 nachten geldt een schoonmaak toeslag van € 35,-. Kortere verblijven zijn ook in de zomermaanden mogelijk indien ze als beschikbare dagen vallen tussen twee andere boekingen.

Voor het bij plaatsen van een baby-bed wordt € 15,- per nacht berekend. U kunt ook Beleza bij huren voor 2 personen. Met eigen douche en toilet.

Het is mogelijk om direct een auto te boeken tegen een scherpe prijs die voor u klaar staat op het vliegveld van Faro of op locatie. Vooral gedurende het hoogseizoen zijn de huurauto's schaars waardoor het aan te raden is dit vroegtijdig te regelen. Wij koken één keer per week een viergangen dinner (juni t/m september).

Fantastisch vakantieadres

  • 5 of 5

We werden zeer gastvrij ontvangen door Kees en Karin. Prachtige locatie, mooie tuin en in de appartementen ontbreekt werkelijk niets. Supermarkt, restaurants en strand binnen 10 minuten bereikbaar. Je komt er helemaal tot rust.

Sehr schön!

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren 10 Tage dort – und es war großartig. Karin und Kees sind fantastische, sehr liebe Gastgeber. Unser Apartement war groß (wir waren zu zweit) und geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Die Küche war sehr gut ausgestattet – uns fehlte es an nichts. Und in nur 5-10 Autominuten ist man an den schönsten Stränden! Jederzeit wieder. Liebe Grüße von Susanne & Tom
