Additional Information: Vila Luisa benefits from a quiet and very private position. The surrounding area provides the opportunity for pleasant evening walks and benefits from little through traffic. For those who require nightlife the larger tourist resorts of Albefeira and Vilamoura are easily reached but Vila Luisa will suit those best who are looking for a holiday in a high quality private villa and do not wish to be located within a major tourist resort. On the other hand, the location of the villa means that the coast is an easy drive (15 mins) and family attractions such as Zoo Marina, Slide and Splash and the Fiesa Sand Festival at Pera are within 10 minutes drive. There are a whole host of restaurants to suit all budgets within easy reach. Personal favourites include O Alambique (5 mins on the road to Silves - more expensive), Lionels (in Algoz - good value for a family) and O Barradas near Silves (lovely outdoor setting) to mention just a few.
Vila Luisa is located in the rural but very accessible small hillside hamlet of Fazenda Caravela. With a commanding elevated position Luisa has superb views towards the exclusive Amendoeira Golf resort and surrounding orange and olive groves. The magnificent Algarve beaches of Marinha, Gale and Armacao de Pera are an easy 15 minutes drive and are all child friendly. The historic town of Silves with its ancient castle and cathedral is 10 minutes away and boasts a supermarket, open market, eateries, banks and an indoor leisure complex. From Silves the road winds to the mountain spa town of Monchique and Caldas Spa where the splendour of the whole Algarve coastline can be viewed on a clear day. The small fishing towns of Alvor and Ferragudo (25 min) offer superb fish restaurants whilst the historic port of Lagos with its small cobbled streets and marina has plenty to explore. Further afield the quiet Western Algarve beaches of Salema, Ingrina and Martinhal are certainly worth a day trip.
Golf: The newly built Amendoeira golf resort offers two of the finest golf courses in the Algarve as well as a state of the art golf academy. The resort is only 5 minutes drive from Vila Luisa and boasts a good restaurant which serves a good snack lunch on a lovely terrace. There are also a number of other golf courses (Silves) which are within 15 minutes drive.
