Things to do

Praia da Falesia:

Acoteias' 3.5-mile-long beach is covered in fine, golden sand and lapped by crystal-clear waters. Red sandstone cliffs provide the backdrop while acting as a suitable barrier to any strong winds. Beach bars are scattered along the coast, and the beach is a mere 10-minute walk from town.

Zoomarine:

This family fun centre is found a few miles from Acoteias in Guia. Here visitors can watch dolphin, seal, and sea lion shows and gaze upon tropical birds and birds of prey. Zoomarine has also got a 4D cinema, a small amusement park, and swimming pools.

The town of Silves:

The historic town of Silves is located approximately 20 miles from Acoteias and makes for a great day trip. The town's architecture displays its interesting past; sights include an impressive hilltop castle made of sandstone by the Moors, a medieval bridge, and a Gothic cathedral.

Monchique:

The town of Monchique also makes for an interesting day trip. It is located in the thickly wooded mountain range about 40 miles from Acoteias. The narrow, cobblestone streets of the old city centre criss-cross their way up the hillside and are dotted with charming cafés; traditional restaurants are also plentiful.

The Albufeira Strip:

The famous Avenida Dr. Fancisco Sa Carneiro, or 'strip' in Albufeira is the place to be for nightlife. Many of the bars and clubs located here are open 24 hours a day. The strip is popular with locals and tourists alike, making it the place to meet people and dance the night away.

Albufeira Old Town:

About a mile away from the busy strip is the charming old town centre of Albufeira. The streets are narrow, covered in cobblestones and lined with single-storey buildings, typical of old towns in this region. There are plenty of fine cafés and restaurants as well as terrific shopping.

Enjoyed BBQs on an evening and wandering down to the beach in the day. The villa is really well equipped with everything you need for a great holiday. Hope to return soon!!

We stayed for 2 weeks with our 2 boys and enjoyed every minute. Ideal if you don't want the noise and pace of a resort but conveniently situated not far from everything you need. Shops restaurants bars etc just a short walk away. It's a drive (or long walk) to the beach and a definite drive to Albufeira and Vilamoura. The owners could not have been more helpful and good to us despite a language barrier. Spotlessly clean and very well equipped. Excellent property - we will definitely return.
