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.

Perfect !

5 of 5
Joao arranged to meet us at a particular time and he was there waiting when we arrived. The roof terrace is amazing and when we went in September '16 the sun would set just over the tops and you had a lovely view whilst watching it. We used the BBQ twice and watched the shooting stars in the clear skies. Our group was only two people but it can easily accommodate 6 with ease, potentially more. Plenty of amenities on site and shops and restaurants to go and explore. Easy access with the lift, which also gives you access to the garage (what we called the Bat Cave) because it's huge. You'll see what I mean if you take a car there, which we did. The beach is 10 minutes, if that, and from there you can walk into Vilamoura (circa 45 mins stroll) or take the opposite and you'll bump into a couple of nice beach bars. We ate in the second one Golfino I think it was called and the food was nice. Plenty of beach beds for hire that are €10 for the day, or you can slum it in the sand for free. It's all clean and the water is deserved of it's blue flag. In the square where the restaurants are go try the FR Sabores (I think it's called that) and try his Portuguese Steak... Beautiful!! The pictures don't do the apartment justice because it's lovely with a balcony that stretches right around the side from to back. Clean, well equipped. The only fault (and I'm being very picky here) is there's no Kettle and us British do like a cup of tea. The dolche coffee maker does give hot water but not as hot as a kettle would. Like I say consider what I'm writing and realise that even I know that's not something to complain about.. Beds comfy, showers perfect, air con - nice to have, tv barely used but worked fine, dining areas ample upstairs and down. Spiral staircase up to the top floor. Perfect for a short or long stay.. We have already booked the full month of June 17 to come back. Thank you Ricardo for allowing us to stay in your beautiful apartment.

AMAZING AMAZING home + location

5 of 5
Everything about our stay at this villa was exceptional: It is beautiful, peaceful, extremely clean, and quite luxurious, with a grand swimming pool, gorgeous landscapes, large modern kitchen and 5 glorious bedrooms AND bath! Up the road is the town, with wonderful restaurants, markets and bars, and just 5 minutes drive away is the gorgeous Falesia beach. Thank you Nuno for sharing your home, and thank you Belita for facilitating our stay. WE WILL BE BACK!!!!

Beautiful resort, wonderful apartment!

5 of 5
The apartment is very spacious with all the facilities you would need for a self catering holiday. The resort is five star and well worth a visit. The beach is amazing and the resort shuttle is great to ferry you from place to place as the resort is so vast! One bit of advice I would pass on is that the onsite "deli" (mini market) isn't well stocked and is really expensive! There is a supermarket just opposite the resort across the road which was used by all our neighbours!! Lovely place, would highly recommend!
