Quite simply some of the best views you can get from any villa I've ever stayed at. Vivenda Aurora has it all. Views to die for, guaranteed sun (a bonus for those Vit D deficient Scottish dwellers), comfortable luxury and generally a great place to spend a week or two with family and/or friends. There's plenty to do near by including boat trips (we went on two and saw dolphins the second time, which everyone agreed was one of the highlights of their holiday) and the villa owners have a helpful book of things to do and see. If golf is your thing then there are plenty near by and for the shoppers amongst you, great markets (fruit, fish, meat, clothes and leather goods) to please all shopping tastes. If you want to experience unspoilt Portugal (rather than the brashness of Val de Lobo), then Vivenda Aurora is as good a place as any from which to base yourselves. A car is probably required but there is also a local taxi driver Carlos, recommended by the villa owners, who can ferry people between various places including the teenagers keen to experience the Gecko Club in Val!
