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.

Places to visit on holiday in Calicos, Portugal

Whilst staying in Calicos it is recommended that you enjoy a few day trips around the Algarve.

Another option is to head a similar distance in the opposite direction to Faro, the biggest city in the Algarve. You could also visit Faro when you first arrive, before continuing on to Calicos.

                                                Very well taken care of and accommodating owners. Highly recommended.

                                                4 of 5
                                                I very much enjoyed my stay at this property. Maria was very nice and accommodating to all our needs. I only give 4 stars instead of 5 because the hot water was not turned on when we arrived, but they came the next day and turned it on for us. She gave us wifi upon request but it took some time to figure out the password and only worked for about one day. Other than those two minor issues, it was a very pleasant stay and I would gladly return. Thank you for everything!

                                                Beautiful villa with a feeling of privacy, peace and comfort.

                                                5 of 5
                                                Very peaceful location, perfect for relaxing with a very safe feeling about it. Felt like home from home, villa very clean and spacious, well-equipped and comfortable. Lovely pool and garden, could not fault it. There are some local shops and a restaurant very close by, but only a short walking distance to old town Albufeira and Fisherman’s Beach. Excellent communications with owner and all queries answered almost immediately. Would definitely stay again. Many thanks to all concerned.
