Albufeira is a busy tourist centre, with the 'old' part of town surrounding the main square and fisherman's beach, the 'new' part to the East side, which is the main centre for tourism, around the Praia da Oura area, and then the calmer, rustic side, to the West, (around and behind Gale beach), which is where our villa is located. Our agents office is on the road to the Gale beach, and is conveniently located within 150 mtrs of all our villa. The Algarve has an abundance of excellent Portuguese restaurants dotted along the coast line, especially the beach bars, and in the Village of Guia, some 4km away, there are the famous Chicken Piri Piri houses along with several other delightful eating places. Food on the Algarve is good, fresh fruit, vegetables, fish, pork, game and poultry are superb. Local wine, gin and brandy are reasonable and very good. Holiday in the Casa James with its luxurious facilities and excellent amenities close by you will see the Algarve at its very best.
Golf: Very close to Salgados course but a short drive you have a choice of many more to suit all level of golfers.
Sets of golf clubs and other equipment can be hired from Macgregor Lda (algarvegolfdesk.com).which is
