Things to do

Relax on the Beach:

The beaches of the Algarve are one of the main attractions. Visitors to Dunas Douradas can enjoy a number of clean stretches of sand, all within a 10-15-minute walk. The Beach Club Dunas Douradas has a great bar with lounge and umbrella rentals, and a simple walk eastward towards Faro leads to any number of fine sandy beaches.

Praia da Quinta do Lago:

This beach is made up of soft sand and clean waters. It expands all the way from Vale do Lobo to the Ria Formosa, and a convenient wooden walkway leads visitors along the length of the beach. Some restaurants can be found here, and a few have terrific views of the Ria Formosa.

Golf:

For the golf tourist, the Algarve region is the place to visit. Over 35 courses are located in the region, and some of the finest can be found near Dunas Douradas: a championship level golf course at Quinta do Lago, the Ocean and Royal courses in Vale do Lobo as well as five courses in nearby Vilamoura.

Sao Lourenco Church:

This church dates back to 1730; a quarter century after its construction, a massive earthquake struck the region, destroying almost every last structure. The church in Sao Lourenco remained however and today offers visitors a unique glimpse into life as it once was. Blue and white tiles alongside intricate woodwork adorn the interior.

Faro:

The Algarvian capital is well worth a visit: the 'cidade velha', or Old Town, is an interesting site including parts of the original wall that still surround the cathedral and bishop's palace. In addition, boats to the beautiful Ria Formosa reserve take off from Faro city centre.

Vilamoura:

The fashionable town of Vilamoura is located about eight miles from Dunas Douradas. An impressive selection of fine restaurants and designer shops line the marina, and the Museu Cerra da Vila highlights the city’s Roman past.

The Little Villa here has it all - walking distance to the communal pool and restaurant if needed - 5 minute drive to the popular beach with its array of loungers and bars/restaurants (Julia's is a must see for everyone!) - pool and garden facing the sun all day (a bonus for a sun worshipper like me) - all the necessities needed for a self-catering holiday I guess I'm not the only person who highly rates this villa as it is booked up solid now - much to my distress when I tried to sneak in another week's holiday at end of August with no luck :-(
