Make a holiday rental home or villa in Calicos, Portugal your home away from home

The neighbourhood of Calicos lies to north of Albufeira, around a ten minute walk from the centre of the city. Staying in a peaceful residential area such as Calicos can be of particular benefit if you are planning busy days on the beaches and sightseeing, and busy nights of wining and dining, as it offers a quiet base to return to for some well-earned sleep. Accommodation in Calicos is of a high standard, and includes luxury villas and modern townhouses.

Things to do in Calicos, Portugal

Calicos is a small residential area that is just a short walk from the attractions of Albufeira. The city is a family-orientated resort, with something to suit everyone.

Nearly everyone loves the beach, and Albufeira has plenty to choose from. A number of sandy stretches run both east and west from the city, so whether you plan on partaking in water sports, enjoying beach activities, sitting in a beach bar or simply relaxing and enjoying the sunshine, there is an option to suit.

Albufeira also has plenty in the way of bars, cafes and restaurants. ‘The Strip’ is the main bar stretch in the modern part of town, and the place to head if you want to party until the small hours. In the old town you will find more refined cafe-bars and wine bars, allowing you to sip a glass of Portuguese red and soak up the relaxed atmosphere.

The cobbled streets of the old town make for excellent walks, with their whitewashed buildings taking you back in time and street entertainers performing on almost every corner. Places of historic interest here include the 18th century Parish Church, which is recognisable for its bell tower, and the 15th century Misericordia Chapel, which was formerly an Arab mosque.

                                          Recently stayed in this villa for a girls holiday and had a wonderful time. The pictures definitely do not do this place justice! Was pleasantly surprised by this villa. Great location not too far from the old and new town but not too close. Would definitely recommend! Jill was lovely and very accommodating. Thanks Jill!x

                                          This is a lovely, clean and spacious villa in a great location. I've booked other villas where the walk to a town was described as 10-15 minutes when in reality it was 25, but in this case it was spot on. We were strolling with a buggy and still at the old town inside 15 minutes. There is also Lidl, Aldi and Pingo Dolce supermarkets that are very close and will have pretty much everything you need. Everything we needed and more was provided, and Maria had even gone the extra mile by providing current magazines that my wife enjoyed reading by the pool, which Manuel cleaned daily. I can't recommend Manuel and Maria as hosts highly enough - we will be sure they are our first point of contact when we return to Albufeira.
